Instagram for Android

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?

Editors' Review

by   / August 11, 2014

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.
