instagram-2.jpgInstagram, the mega-popular free iPhone app that allows you to add filters and borders to your otherwise stale smartphone snaps, is headed to Android phones.

Speaking at the Le Web conference in Paris, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom revealed that his team had allocated “two people working on Android” app projects.

Two people may not sound like a lot, but when you consider that the whole Instagram team is only made up of 6 employees, that makes up a third of the company’s workforce!

Though likely to remain free, Systrom revealed they are keen to improve the app’s monetising strategies.

“Obviously, we didn’t start a business to not make money. Our focus now is on growing the network. You really need to build up the network, or no advertisers care,” said Systrom.

That network however is looking healthier by the day; 14 million iPhone owners already have the app installed, and that number would rise dramatically were the app to hit the wealth of Android phones available too.

No exact release schedule yet revealed for Instagram’s Android version, but we’ll be sure to pass on any details as we get them.
