Instagram for Android hits 1 million downloads in just 24 hours

instagram-with-photos.jpgAfter a long wait for a port from iOS to Android, photography fans have come out in their droves to support Instagram for Android, downloading the free app over 1 million times in just 24 hours.

That’s around 2,000 sign-ups every minute, making it one of the most popular app launches on the Google Play market.

Our early tests suggest that it’s a great little bit of software too, sprucing up shots just as nicely as it did on Android phones, despite the massively varied quality of Android camera systems. Now Android owners can pretend to be photography pros just like iPhone owners too!

On iOS, Instagram has already racked up 30 million downloads. We expect the combined total with Android users included to quickly eclipse even that massive figure.

  • This massive deal between Instagram and Facebook was compared by many people to Google’s $1.6 Billion procurement of YouTube which made Google a leader in Internet video and allowed it to enlarge its publicity to new presentations and hang-ups.
