hipsters are the people that are usually against bandwagoning things so you're kinda contradicting your argument right? I have a lot of friends / follow famous people/atheletes that use instagram and it would just be something else to keep me occupied thoroughout the day.

haters gonna hate.

Except for apple, starbucks, american apparel, etc.

However, I do wish you the best of luck finding your app, but I don't know how to help you get it offhand. If I did, I would give suggestions whether I liked it or not. I would try just googling for it, I'm sure something will turn up from some unofficial source.



I <3 hipster kitty.

I don't mean to generalize a group of people by calling them "hipster filters."
Shit, "hipsters" are just people to me. I don't judge.
What else have you heard them called?
Color-adjustment-filters?
Filters?

If he just wants filters, there's apps on the market to do that. That or from a PC, just get gimp or some other free paint program like paint.net.

You're making the same mistake the general public does in misusing the term "hipster." What you're referring to is more of the lame indie/scenester kids. Hipster is actually supposed to refer to a subculture from the 1940s: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/hipster.

I'm tired of people just saying it's "hipster filters" and nothing more. When talking about other Android photo editing/socialnetworking sites (Lightbox, Streamzoo) no one ever throws around negative comments. It only seems to be centered around Instagram because it's a was made popular by iOS.

Regardless of whether or not you think other apps do it better, the ease and simplicity of Instagram and the UI make it appealing to the masses (iOS in general). The biggest thing, though, is the user-base. No application on either platform has the reach that Instagram does. It's created its own, mobile-only social network. I like looking through my friends iPhones and going through their Instagram feed. It's different than people posting pictures just to twitter.

No matter how you feel about the app, everyone should be happy that it's coming to Android. It's one of the most demanded applications, and may people switch or contemplate switching to iOS because we don't have it. The more options, the better.

I'll go ahead and claim ignorance.
I really only thought this was a filter applying application. I knew it uploaded photos to instagram.com or whatever...but didn't really understand WHY or who was doing this.
I had only ever seen other Android users reference to it's filters...and saw a model who posted a picture to instagram...but figured it was exactly the same as taking a picture and uploading it to photobucket or whatever.
Still nothing I'm interested in, but I "get" it now.

Thanks for the clarification.

Now it's time for tiktok to rule the social media app's market. You guys can see the remarkable increase in the number of users using this app. People like this app because they like video. Short video is more catchy than image or text.
