Instagram on Android is now past 1 million downloads and it’s not even been a day
Instagram for Android finally launched yesterday, after months of being in development and plenty of envious Android users rushed to download it. It’s been a huge success from the very beginning and now it’s broken the 1 million download mark earlier than 24 hours after it’s on Google Play.

And for a good reason - the application has a similarly stellar photo editing options on Android, and it’s a free download.

At such a pace, Android downloads of Instagram could quickly pass the 30 million downloads the app has generated on the App Store, but it’s still way too early to tell.

Probably the best thing about the application is that it’s backwards compatible with devices running on the now ancient Android 2.2 Froyo that support OpenGL ES 2.0. Have you tried it already?

Yay! Now I can be a creative professional photographer like those hipster baristas!

Yeah, It's a good app and all, nice filters and stuff but what's the big hype about it anyway?

Honestly, the best feature of Instagram is that for every one download there are 5 pissed off iPhone users complaining on Twitter that their "club" is no longer "special".

I love the simple things in life...

if ifans don't feel 'special' with their iphone then the charm is gone and all the money spent on it to have the 'privilege' of owning one has faded away and so has the much sought after public acceptance........its can be a tough life these days for ifans

Yeah dude, I thought my girlfriend was exaggerating when she said that all of the tweets about #instagram were negative ones from iPhone users. When I actually looked I was blown away...

Literally pages upon pages of exactly this:

"EW!!! Android has #instagram? OMG GROSS!"

It made me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

I think this demonstrates for a lot of iOS developers that there are riches to be made in the Android market. And if you are first, you can control the market.
