Popular photo-sharing app Instagram has had a good ride so far. Today at the SxSW conference in Austin, Texas Co-founder Kevin Systrom confirmed the company has surpassed the 27 million registered users, up about 7 million from last month. Apart from finding incredible success on iOS they have finally announced plans to released an Android app “really soon”, but gave no definitive date. Systrom did briefly show the audience a beta version of the app running on his Galaxy Nexus, and even went as far as saying “it’s one of the most amazing Android apps you’ll ever see… in some ways, it’s better than our iPhone app”. Bold statement – apparently the app has integration with other social networking sites such as Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter.
Hopefully “really soon” is only a matter of days.
