Instagram announced that it had arrived on Android today, about a year and a half after the app launched for the iPhone.
The app lets people take pictures, apply filters, and share them on a social network. Since its launch on iOS in October of 2010, Instagram has reached 30 million users on iOS. Coupling that with Android, which is used by far more users than iOS, the application is tracking to hit 100 million users sometime this year.
According to TechCrunch, the Android app is consistent with the iPhone app. It can run on any camera phone with Android 2.2 or higher, applies the same filters as iOS, and has many of the same steps from taking the photo to sharing it publicly. It is available in Chinese, French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.
The company is raising $40 million at a $500 million valuation.
