Instagram for Android is now available for free to download on Google Play(the online application store by Google) since its was released 17 months ago for iOS. At that time it was not free but now Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom has announced Instagram for smartphones running Android 2.2 or later free of cost.

Instagram is the fastest growing application among iPhone photographers and its users are more than 30 million across the world. These users have uploaded more than 1 billion images with this application so you can imagine the popularity of this application.
