Kevin Systrom, co-founder of Instagram, announced during SXSW that the long-awaited version of the Android app is currently in private testing and very close to its release.
?In a way, better than our iOS app. This is crazy, ?said Systrom. He added that "the application is fast, works well on large screens and that the photos can be shared with Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and other networks".
Regarding the delay in joining the Google platform, Systrom disagrees that there have been delays.
?I don't think it took us that long. We had priorities. If we had tried so much on Android and iPhone at the same time, it would have been difficult to innovate in the way that we did, ?he said.
