Instagram, one of the most popular photography apps available for iOS devices, might be making its way over to Android in the near future (finally). Instagram’s CEO, Kevin Systrom, spoke at LeWeb ’11 today, and at the event he mentioned that two people on the team (there are only 10 people working in Instagram) are working on the Android version of the app. While no specific timeline was mentioned, this is the first time he’s acknowledged that his team are working on it, so it should be on the way.
In case you’re unfamiliar with Instagram, it’s basically an app that lets users take photographs, apply filters and then share them with the world on the Instagram network as well as other social networks like Facebook and Twitter. The app currently has about 15 million users on iOS alone, so branching out to include Android would definitely increase the number of users by a huge amount. It looks like PicPlz is about to face some stiff competition.
