Instagram for Android has been downloaded over one-million times since going live late yesterday.

According to the New York Times, the app experienced 2 000 sign ups a minute after launching. Tech news site The Next Web reckons this makes it one of the biggest app launches in history.

The wildly popular app was previously only available on devices running Apple’s iOS. Bringing Android into Instagram’s fold could see the app soar past the 30-million or users it currently has.

As UK tech site The Register reports, however, not everyone is happy with the changes. A number of Apple fanbois took to Twitter to complain that the photo-sharing side of the app had become crowded.

Instagram functions both as a kind of photo-sharing social network and a tool that allows people to add filters to any pictures they take with their devices.

The Android version of the app has is an almost exact clone of the iOS version, although there are a few concessions to Android user standards.

Instagram got the nod for Apple’s app of the year in 2011.
