Photo application Instagram was recently released for Android, and is reporting 2,000 new Android user signups every minute.

This is according to Kevin Systrom, Instagram’s chief executive officer.

The application has been around since 2010, but it is only now available for Android.

There were more than 430,000 Android users on the app’s waiting list, so the influx of new signups doesn’t come as a surprise.

The Android version will look similar to the iOS version, and will sport all the same features apart from tilt-shift and blur.

Instagram allows users to browse friends’ photos, view popular photos, and upload their own pictures.

The application is available to Android 2.2 and up devices, though there is currently no tablet support.
