The Instagram application has been a consistent selling point for the Apple iPhone. An easy-to-use program, the Instagram tool allows users to quickly edit their images, often providing an artsy photo finish or some other desired effect. What's more is that the feature is highly compatible with Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, thus providing for a carefree photo upload procedure.
Apple's dominance over the Instagram device has held a great deal of weight for some time, often making the iPhone product a go-to device for many consumers. In light of all the success, Google Play is now offering its own version of Instagram, an Android-specific application that is compatible with systems above the 2.2 ratio.
The merger of Google Play with Instagram is significant in that it breaks down the iPhone value on the tech market. As this Android application can now be downloaded for free, the competition between the two magnates may begin to take on a new shape.
