The popular photo-sharing app, Instagram, which used to be available only on the iPhone and iPads, has come to the Android platform. You can download the mobile app for free from Google Play (formerly Android Market).

Launched in October 2010, Instagram is a popular photo-sharing app that is only available on Apple's iPhone and iPad, and has over 30 million users to date. And now the company is moving to cover the Android market with the launch of their app on Google's platform.

The app also offers a wide selection of filtered effects that you can use to give your picture a new artistic look. The Instagram app for Android is free to download from Google Play and requires Google Android 2.2 Froyo and higher.
