The other day, the most awaited photo editing app for Android has officially arrived at the Google Play Store. As a matter of fact, it was one of the best apps that you can have on your iPhone. If you already have a clue of what we are talking about, you’ve probably guessed that we have set our eyes on Burbn, Inc’s ‘Instagram’. And yes, it can finally be downloaded and installed on your Android smartphone.
If you do want to try the said photo editing app with free photo effects, we are here to give you the APK file for its updated version which is 1.0.1. Also, we will give you the direct link as to where you can directly download the app from the Google Play Store. But before we do that, you should know that Instagram won’t work on Android smartphones with OS versions that are older than Android 2.2 Froyo. Also, keep in mind that if your smartphone does not support OpenGL ES 2, you’d better skip the app. In particular, the app does not support the following Android smartphones: Samsung Galaxy Y and HTC WildFire. In addition, those who are planning to get the HTC One X will not be able to use the app. We hate to say this but the Instagram Team already announced that they still don’t support the said handset but they do plan on releasing an update that will support the HTC One X’s 8 mega pixel camera. For now, the app works fine with the Samsung Galaxy S 2 and any other kinds of Android smartphones with Android 2.2+ and OpenGL ES 2.
