Instagram for Android Review

Developer: Instagram
Version: 3.0.5

“Google Play Description”
Instagram – A beautiful way to share your world. It's fast, free and fun!
Pick from one of several gorgeous filtered effects to breathe a new life into your mobile photos.
Transform everyday moments into works of art you'll want to share with friends and family.

What is it?
Instagram is basically a photo sharing site that allows you to share a snapshot with your family, friends, etc.

How does it work?
You take a picture, you add a filter to that picture, you share the picture…

-          Quick and easy way to share pictures with friends and family
-          Ease of use
-          Photo map
-          Sharing between Facebook, Twitter, and a few other social media sites

-          Picture size / resolution limitations
-          Occasional app crashes when adding blur effects
-          No Google plus sharing as of yet
-          UI feels too much like IOS

My Thoughts:
Photo Map in Instagram 
Instagram is one of the more fun social media apps out there. Being quick and easy to use makes it appeal to a wider range of people. My main issue is with the resolutions caps. Its not that big of a deal but it is annoying having to crop pictures taken with your normal phone’s camera.
