Instagram is today’s talk of town both on iOS on Android platform. After being successful on iOS platform this photo-sharing app garnered over 30-million active users and recently it was released on Android. Another milestone of Instagram was on Monday when they announced that Facebook will acquire the company with the whooping price of $1-billion USD even the valuation price is at 500-million, doubling the price after the week. The photo-sharing social networking site is just 17 month old and it became a total success thanks to iOS users.
Android users were jealous because the photo-sharing app is only available on Apple devices and last week it was officially launched on Android. Android welcomed the service with full open arms and 6 days after its release on Google Play Store it reaches nearly 5-million downloads. If you think that this is a small number think again. It took Instagram for iOS 6-months to reach 6-million users and I think the total success of Instagram on Android is that it already have great foundation on iOS and they should get the credit too.
