Nearly Half Of Instagram Users Are On Android

Instagram celebrated its one-year anniversary on Android Wednesday, sharing that now almost one-half of the people who access the application do so on that kind of device.

In a blog post Wednesday, Instagram’s Philip McAllister reflected on the year the app has spent on Android:

Instagram for Android has helped make this community more global than ever. Major events such as Brazil’s Círio de Nazaré festivalthe 85th birthday of Thailand’s King Bhumibol, and a streak of severe thunderstorms throughout Malaysia have been captured by Android Instagrammers and shared to global audiences like never before. We’ve also seen Android Instagrammers contribute to the community in innovative and powerful ways, including @daveedgamboa’s incredible jumpstagrams around Southern California, photos of England’s beautiful Lancashire county from @adamgrayson, and even a glimpse into the life of Kenya’s nomads from @grantsmind.
