NEW YORK (AP) - IPhone-less hipsters rejoice: The popular photo-taking and photo-sharing app Instagram is now on Android.

The app has already been available on the iPhone and iPod Touch, where it’s been downloaded more than 30 million times.

Free to use, Instagram lets people apply various filters to the photos they snap with their mobile devices. Some of these make the photos look as if they’ve been taken in the 1970s or on Polaroid cameras.

Photo apps such as Instagram are gaining popularity as mobile phone cameras continue to improve.

Instagram said in a blog post Tuesday that the app for Google’s Android system will have the same look and feel as the application available on Apple Inc.’s iOS operating system.
