Instagram for Android is here

Get ye over to Google Play as photo filter app Instagram finally leaves the clutches of iOS

Instagram for Android is now ready and waiting for your snap happy Droid phone over at the Google Play store.

If you've been bashing your head against a rock for the past two years to blind yourself to app-related news, you won't know what Instagram does, so here goes. Create and follow photo streams and once you've applied a funky/vintage/poserish filter or border to your snaps, share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Foursquare (Flickr soon).

This version of Instagram will work with Android 2.2 and above (shame on you if that far behind) and has both front and back camera support but there's no love for Android tablets just yet.

Yes it may be true that millions of iPhone users have been tilt shifting their photos since 2010 but it looks like Google Play might finally be locking down all the 'must have' apps out there with this one. Download Instagram for Android now. And yes, it's still free.
