Android App News: Instagram for Android confirmed

Android owners rejoice. One of the main stay-aways of the app era, Instagram has been confirmed for launch on Google-powered smartphones. The creator expects an Android launch to double its user base

The massively popular Instagram photo sharing service for iPhone will finally be bestowed upon Android users, according to company CEO Kevin Systrom.

The service, which became famous due to its host of retro-style filters has over 15 million users on iOS and its creator reckons those numbers will double with a launch for Google-powered smartphones.

He told an audience at the LeWeb Conference in Paris: "We have two people working on Android now. I'm excited to be able to see our numbers today nearly double."

Systrom didn't, however, reveal when the Android app would be completed or released.

The Instagram app has been a giant success story. Earlier this year the company notched its 150 millionth photo upload just nine months after launch. That equated to 15 photos every second.
