Instagram for Android combines great tools to add beauty to your photos with cool social sharing features. It's become synonymous with filtering and sharing photos for a reason. If you want a photo diary of what all of your friends and family are doing, there's no better way to get it.
You need to create an account to get to the app, but logging in through Facebook is allowed. If you choose that route, you can create a less personal username. The app will also scan your Facebook friends list and add anyone who uses it to your feed. Your feed is similar to Facebook, but there are no text posts--just pictures. You can like or comment on any picture you see. Since the app was designed to work with iPhones first, it makes sense that it still looks like an iPhone app. Instagram for Android lets you snap a picture in the app or upload one from your gallery to edit and filter. There are a few dozen filters to choose from and all of them look professional and stylish. Once you've picked your favorite, you can add it to your photo map or share it with other social networks right from the app. It does take a little while to process your photo, though. That's just about the only negative thing you can say about this app.
Instagram for Android may be the butt of many hipster jokes, but it deserves the title of king when it comes to social photo sharing apps. It's perfect for taking, sharing, and browsing photos of people, places, and anything else that strikes your fancy.
