The wait indeed is over for the Samsung Galaxy Y Young GT- S5360 users like me, Instagram for Android is now working smoothly. The latest version of Instagram is 1.0.6 and now has a smaller file size of 12MB. The application automatically moved the installation directory to the external storage, mine is a 2GB microSD, when installed it only reads 3.45MB.

The photo used in this post is my first working Instagram post with two effects combined by going back after one effect is applied, try it to your photos and get the effects you want. Now join the hype of Instagram and be the next proud user with the acquisition of Facebook expect more integration in the social network giant.

New Possibilities for Instagram, a Windows Phone Perhaps?

Still hot on the news of Instagram for Android’s release now comes Facebook sealing the deal with Instagram.

For anyone else, who hasn’t heard about Instagram, it is both an application and a social network that enables mobile users to easily apply filters and post photos. In a branding perspective it has a hipterish-retro look and feel.

The popular photo-sharing site, Instagram, was offered to be bought by Facebook for $1billion. Maybe this is how a very talented person like Mark Zuckerberg would have to react after spotting a real talent from the team that developed Instagram, and asked them to join him on Facebook. The two parties made it a point that they wouldn’t just incorporate everything on the social network, rather keep and further develop Instagram’s advantages, now even more with Facebook’s strong engineering team and resources.

The application would still keep the same people you followed and those who followed you before the transition and you’d still be able to share to other social networks. The switch would really be an advantage to Facebook when it comes to the photo social scene.

So much of a sweet talk, I think the tie up would have the users sign in with their Facebook account instead of what used to be their Instagram’s. The application is only available to iPhone and recently to Android, Facebook making a huge investment on it makes me wonder on how they’re planning to make a huge profit on this deal as well. I think Windows phone will be next on their list.

I’ll stick out for the next few months and if I see people ditching Instagram, it would indicate that Facebook failed them. I doubt it. Still I wish many a happy returns to Instagram’s developers, Devin Systrom and Mike Krieger for making their way to today’s highly competitive tech niche.
