Official confirmation of Instagram for Android

I admit I was waiting a long time, even with a hint of envy iPhone owners, the famous Instagram application on the Android platform.

It came, finally, the official confirmation from the CEO of Instagram (rif. Nexus-Lab), Kevin Systrom, who has announced that work began on the version of Instagram for Android.

The first release is scheduled for the coming months; they proceed, in fact, slowly, as well the development team is composed by only 6 people.

Although there are many alternatives on Android (vedi #instagram) believe that there are no comparisons with the Instagram’s features.

There is also a very useful and popular web application (Followgram) that allows you to create a vanity URLs, Facebook albums and much more based on Instagram shared photos.

We remain, therefore, waiting for a first release, hoping that they’ll release for Android the same features implemented on iOS platforms.

Instagram for Android? New competition from Google with Pool Party!

Due to the success it is having Instagram on iOS platform (currently not yet available for Android), many are moving for an hard competition to the most popular application for sharing photos with smartphones and tablet. So great is its success that many spin-offs are emerging that exploit the API Instagram, first of all Followgram that extends the basic functionality of Instagram to get a Vanity URL for a gallery of own photos and a follow button to embed in own site/blog.

The new application that promises to give hard time to Instagram is Pool Party, and was released by Slide, a company that is part of Google Inc.
Like all the news by Google, Pool Party is available from the App Store or the Android Market, but you can use it (signup) only by invitation.

We await the official release of Pool Party, since it is currently in beta, and we’ll see what’s new with will present for a market so full of users.

Here is a preview:

Instagram for Android? ..I recommend Picplz!

For a long time I was waiting for Instagram for Android and only a few weeks ago I discovered that it could be dispensed thanks to Picplz, which created a nice platform, all to envy. Even if the Instagram app for iPhone has many more features to transform the look and feel of the picture, Picplz moves forward by providing its own online repository of published photos, Flickr-style, as well as apps for the iPhone and Android.

As Instagram for iPhone, also Picplz give the possibility to apply filters to photos, to create own friends’ network, share photos on Facebook, Flickr, on the same Picplz social platform, Twitter, TumblrPosterous and you can associate Foursquare venues for yours photo checkin, but mostly you will end your pictures everywhere via Dropbox.
I would say that, barring further changes can be applied to photos, Picplz has nothing to envy to Instagram.
