Android To Get Instagram App, It’s Better Than iOS Version!

The popular photo-filtering and sharing app Instagram is finally coming to Android. The co-founder of Instagram, Kevin Systrom, made the announcement at SXSW. He said that the app is being tested internally as private beta and will be released soon.

There is more for iOS users to get envious, the Android app of Instagram is better than its iOS cousin. “In some ways, it’s better than our iOS app. It’s crazy,” Systrom said. He said that the app is fast, works great on large screens and can share photos to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and other networks.

Instagram was announced for iOS in October 2010 and had becomes extremely popular. The app was named  Apple’s iOS app of the year last year. So, what took the company so long to offer the app for Android? Systrom said, “I don’t think it took us so long. We just had priorities. Had we tried to be both on Android and iPhone at the same time, it would’ve been tough to innovate in the way that we have.”
