Instagram for Android still coming soon, so check out these 12 alternative cameras


Instagram describes its service as “A fast, beautiful and fun way to share your photos with friends and family.” It’s already one of the most popular apps on iOS with over 27 million users and early this month Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom announced his popular iOS app was coming to Android very soon.

Systrom promised it would be “one of the best Android apps you’ll ever see.” Today they opened a sign-up page to let fans “be first in line” for the Android version when it’s available. Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly when Instagram for Android will be ready in beta or final form.

Thankfully, Android has a number of quality camera apps that have all the features offered by Instragram and even more extras. We gathered up the top 12 camera apps with the highest ratings and the most downloads and listed them below. We think Pixlr-o-matic offers the closest experience to the Instagram camera effects and Lightbox has the best social features.

Look over the list below, try some new apps out, and let us know what your favorite alternative camera app is.
