Instagram celebrates its first year in Android


One year ago Instagram launched its own app for Android, something that seemed like a really big thing at the time. Today, one year later things look really massive for the Instagram family, since the success it has shown is huge among Android users, reaching almost 50% out of its 100 million total users!

According to Philip McAllister: 

Instagram for Android has helped make this community more global than ever. Major events such as Brazil’s Círio de Nazaré festivalthe 85th birthday of Thailand’s King Bhumibol, and a streak of severe thunderstorms throughout Malaysia have been captured by Android Instagrammers and shared to global audiences like never before. 

For all of you that don't know the historic facts, the first Instagram app for Android was released on April 3rd 2012 and now supports Froyo (Android 2.2) devices and above and OpenGL ES 2. The relevant iPhone app was released on 2010 and had similar hit among teenagers mostly.
