Instagram, one of the most popular iPhone photographic filter applications by far, which has managed to create a whole social network of users behind it, has finally landed on the Android platform to the delight and delight of all users of mobile phones with this operating system.
The main function of Instagram is to give a much more elegant look to all our photographs with the help of a series of filters and original frames among which we find some well-known as XPro-II, Earlybird, Lo-fi, Sutro, Toaster, Brannan , Inkwell, Walden, Hefe, Nashville or 1977, to give some relatively well-known examples.
However, for what Instagram has become so popular is because of its social nature, which will allow us to follow certain users to see at all times which photographs upload to the Internet or tag photos and search for them by ‘hashtags’, so that they result very easy to find a current photographic trend and take a look at the snapshots of other users around the world.
The social functions of the application do not stay here, since we can also easily share our photographs (already edited) through tumblr, twitter, facebook or foursquare with just a dash on the screen.
For some users, Instagram is more than a simple application to take pictures and apply beautiful filters: it is a new way of expressing yourself and communicating with other people with your same interests. Of course for the rest, the vast majority, is still a great application to put ‘filtritos’ to the photos.
