The Instagram iOS app is apparently doing rather well with over 27 million registered users, however, the photo sharing application is at some point destined for the Android platform, albeit it isn’t quite clear just when Instagram for Android will finally arrive, but the word is it will be better than the iOS app.
According to the guys over at Tech Crunch, co-founder of Instagram, Kevin Systrom sat down with Tech Crunch for a chat about the mobile application, and said of the iOS app that it is Facebook level engagement they are seeing.
However, turning from the iOS app version for a moment, apparently during the SXSW interactive conference in Austin, Texas, Systrom showed off the upcoming Instagram app for the Android platform, albeit only briefly and didn’t actually deliver a full on demo.
But Systrom did say, “In some ways, it’s better than our iOS app. It’s crazy,” and co-founder Mike Krieger also commented that the people over at Android have been somewhat impressed in the way the application leverages the platform.
Other than that though, the guys didn’t reveal anything else about the Instagram app for Android or just what the app will offer the Android user that makes it in some ways better than the iOS app, nor has anyone come forth with an actual date when the Instagram app will hit Google Play, but hopes are that it shouldn’t be too long now.
So is any of our Android toting readers out there awaiting the arrival of Instagram on the Android platform?
