Instagram, one of the most popular filter photograph applications for iPhone that differs itself from the rest and has created an entire social network of users, has finally arrived for the Android platform for the enjoyment of all mobile users that own this operating system.

Instagram's main function is to give all your photographs a much more elegant aspect with the help of a series of filters and unique frames, some of which include very popular ones like XPro-II, Earlybird, Lo-fi, Sutro, Toaster, Brannan, Inkwell, Walden, Hefe, Nashville or 1977, to name a few relatively known examples.

However, what has really made Instagram popular is its social feature, which allows you to follow determined users to see which pictures they upload to the Internet at all times, or tag photos and find them through 'hashtags'. This way, it is very simple to follow a photographic trend and instantly glance the snapshots of users around the world.

The social features of the application don't stop there, as it allows you to easily share your photos (already edited) via Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook or Foursquare with the simple flick of a finger on the screen.

For many users, Instagram is more than a simple application to create photos and apply pretty filters: it's a new way of expressing themselves and staying in touch with other people who share their same interests. Obviously for the rest of us, which is the majority, it is just an awesome application to apply 'pretty filters' to our photographs.
