Is Instagram's Android photo app as good as the original iOS app? The new Instagram for Android has better performance, more advanced photo-editing options (like double-tapping on filters to adjust strength), and easier video sharing.

Pros

Kindles passion for photography: Instagram for Android strikes us as the most engaging photo app/social network for amateur and professional photographers on Google Play. It has a gorgeous design, an easy-to-use camera with autostraightening, professional-looking filters, a beautiful photo feed, graceful navigation, and effortless social sharing, Even if you don't see yourself as a photographer, Instagram's unlimited image storage and timeline-based feed is still useful for storage and backup purposes.

Streamlined design: Whether you're swiping between tabs to access the photo feed, camera, or your profile page, snapping photos on the go, applying filters to images, or exploring your feed, you'll be impressed with this app's gracefulness. The UI not only looks good, but it also moves fluidly, with smooth scrolling and transitions, and intuitive and responsive controls.

Fantastic content and vibrant community: The sheer amount of high-quality images snapped every day by the Instagram community is astonishing, as is user engagement. Interacting with users through comments is great fun.

Cons

Relatively slow image processing: While the app itself moves smoothly, processing an image after adding a filter does take a while. It isn't a big issue, but may be annoying now and then, when you want to quickly edit images on the go.

Startup crashes: The app crashed twice immediately after launch while we tried to create a new account using our email address. We eventually managed to register on our third attempt.

Bottom Line

Instagram stands out as a spectacular photography app for both novices and pros. Even if you don't want to share your photos with the world, you should still download this app because of the humongous number of gorgeous images taken by other users, which you can like, share, and save to your favorites. Overall, this app is almost as good as the iOS one, save for the slower image-processing speed.

Developer's Description

Instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world's moments. Follow your friends and family to see what they're up to, and discover accounts from all over the world that are sharing things you love. Join the community of over 1 billion people and express yourself by sharing all the moments of your day -- the highlights and everything in between, too.

Use Instagram to:

* Post photos and videos you want to keep on your profile grid. Edit them with filters and creative tools and combine multiple clips into one video.

* Browse photos and videos from people you follow in your feed. Interact with posts you care about with likes and comments.

* Share multiple photos and videos (as many as you want!) to your story. Bring them to life with text, drawing tools and other creative effects. . They disappear after 24 hours and won't appear on your profile grid or in feed.

* Go live to connect with your friends in the moment. Try going live with a friend and sharing a replay to your story when you're done.

* Message your friends privately in Direct. Send them photos and videos that disappear and share content you see on Instagram.

* Watch stories and live videos from the people you follow in a bar at the top of your feed.

* Discover photos, videos and stories you might like and follow new accounts on the Explore tab.
