No because the company who develops the app are Apple fanboys and arent even working on an Android version.
I think its stupid for app developers to be fanboys of particular platforms or they're just too lazy to develop for any other than their favorite, but its a real world fact. iOS development is easy mode.

They still plan on expanding to Android and to desktop OSs. They said that they don't wanna rush it though... The same reason why they don't want ads in the application or to charge a subsription fee. Not until its more established and well known. Just like what Tumblr did.
Is it becuase iOS has an app you can't get on Android? Or that there is a wildly successful app that the developers prefer iOS?

Well this app has been around for a long time now, about a year or so. I remember my wife when she got her android smartphone in October of last year, she rememeber seeing her friend with an iphone posting pics from Instagram on their facebook. I figured it was because it was still new, its not uncommon for some apps to come to Iphone first with an android version soon after, as they are only making an app for a couple skus instead of dozens. However, fast forward nearly a year later, still not on Android? Apple fanboyism confirmed.
