After rumors, rumblings, and annoying fakes, it sounds like Instagram is just about ready to officially hit Android. In a talk with Tech Crunch, Instagram Co-Founder Kevin Systrom disclosed a few morsels of information regarding an upcoming Android launch, namely that it's coming soon.
Systrom briefly showcased the Android app on stage at SXSW, but indicated that the app isn't quite ready for a full demo. In a sensational turn of phrase, Systrom noted that "in some ways, it's better than our iOS app. It's crazy."
Android users lucky enough to be running Ice Cream Sandwich can already enjoy breezy photo sharing and "hipster filters," but many argue that those aren't the only benefits offered by Instagram.
Indeed, Instagram has proven to be a venerable social service, recently reaching 27 million registered users. It will certainly be interesting to see how the community reacts to the introduction of an official Android app.
Of course, there's still no word on when users will actually be able to get their hands on the app, but we'll be here with any new details that emerge.
