Many Android smartphone users will be feeling chuffed today as Instagram (the popular photo-sharing app that’s had iPhone owners feeling superior since 2010) is now available on the Google mobile platform.

Instagram’s biggest selling point is its use in social networking – it facilitates an excellent online community of photo-lovers of all types, allowing the sharing of a massive library of pictures.

This free photo sharing application lets users take pics, apply a filter, and share it on the Instagram service or via a variety of other social networking services such as Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Tumblr, Flickr and Posterous.

Following its launch, the app, which is available as a link to the Google Play Store on Instagram’s website, has already seen 2000 downloads every minute by the Android community.

Instagram Co-Founder, Kevin Systrom, explained why the app took so long to reach the Android platform: ““Launching on a single platform allowed us to focus on the product and the user experience. It’s given us the ability to stay small and nimble, and we’ve been able to respond quickly to user feedback.”
