Instagram for Android

I about peed my pants when I received this e-mail Tuesday afternoon.

Instagram is now available for Android. All of us Android hipsters can now join in on the fun.  (You can find more info on the app here!)

I tried to install it quickly. You know, in between counseling patients not to drink booze with their pain pills. My career is very rewarding. Unfortunately, my phone software wasn’t up-to-date.

Tears rolled down my cheeks.  (Okay, not really..but it makes for a better story.)

I had to work until 8:00PM.  The e-mail was a tease.  I sent Nate a text that his evening involved updating my phone software and installing Instagram…as soon as I walked in the door.  He told me he wouldn’t have time.  Five minutes later I received an Instagram photo from him.  I married the devil. 

Many hours later I became an Instagram user.  My life is forever changed. (Dramatic much?)  This is my “I’m finally an Instagram user” smile complete with “I did my boy hair in 2 minutes this morning because 7:30 is way to early to be at work.”…

I’m finding that Instagram is perfect for over sharers like myself.

Who wants to see what’s in my fridge?  Man, do we need groceries!

Ike is already sick of Instagram.

Seriously, can't I enjoy my post-walk rest?

When will Nate be home to save me from this non-sense?

Fine.  I'll pose for another photo if you'll give me my bones already.
Who's on Instagram?  I need more people to follow!  My user name is DecorandtheDog.  Anyone think I should learn to take photos of something other than my dog?  Yeah, me neither.

  4. I guess us iphone users have had it too cushy. Lisa has this app on her phone, but we don't use it much. I think I'll pick it up and try it out.

  8. This is so cool! Unfortunately, I'm moving from 2012 back to 1995 and getting rid of my data package tomorrow (hello... $35/month!). Otherwise, I'd be all over this.

  10. I haven't quite jumped onto the Instagram bandwagon...however, I do have to say that Ike is photogenic, how can you NOT take pics of him? It will just have to be a burden he has to bear. :)

  11. Okay so I have to tell you something off topic. Your "Lets Talk About You" post (from back last year, I know. I saved it. So not creepy: http://decorandthedog.blogspot.ca/2011/06/lets-talk-about-you.html) I want to steal your questions and use them on my blog. Is that okay? lol If so I want to post the blog tomorrow at some point. I've linked you (because I <3 your blog!) But yeah. Just wanted to check first.

    Have a great Thursday! (Is this your "Friday" too?) ... omg my site. Right. Here is my website if you wanted to see: spiffykerms.com

  12. I'm glad Instagram is on Android now because that means more people to follow! I've had it forever and it's awesome.

    And I'd say a good 98% of my pictures are of my dogs. You can follow me at brandi2382 if you'd like. I'm following you now!

  13. Welcome to the elite club that is Instagram. Where people post photos of their pets, children, outfits, meals, and other random things.

  14. I haven't started using Instagram although I have had it downloaded for ages. Does that make me a nerd? I have been using Hipstamatic and I'm kind of addicted to that. I'll look at Instagram now that you've peaked my interest.

  15. FINALLY. I'm pretty sure the world has been waiting for another 3000 pictures of my dogs. But now they can be all tinted and professional looking! You're welcome, world.

    I'm trying to branch out but I don't know what else to take pictures of. My coffee cup? Help!

  24. My fiance and I have been laughing every time we use it, calling ourselves hispters, then I read this, which just made me laugh even more. My username is erinkortiz if you want to follow me! (I post animal pics too, haha!)

  25. Hey, I'm not supposed to be typing (my arm is out of commission), but I wanted to congratulate you on having your bathroom featured on YHL! I'm reading your posts, but won't be able to comment on them anymore for a short time.

  26. Ok, so can Nate fix my phone too? For some reason I cannot get Instagram! I can't get the stupid Google Play App to update. Meh! So um, Nate? Little help here?

    ReplyDelete

  28. Your hair is Qt and not in a little boy sort of way! I love my instagram too. It makes life for hip & cool!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I just got it too! Guess how many pics I've taken? EXACTLY NONE. But it's on my phone, so pretty sure that makes me hip and awesome. Time to begin the oversharing.

    1. The easiest way is to take it into your wireless provider and they can update it for you.

      We have US Cellular and they have directions on their page.

      Hope that helps!

  31. I had the same reaction as you and I really felt left out of all the Instagram fun being an Android user. I have a feeling I will become addicted real soon. My username is tastysweetcupcakes. Right now I'm obsessed with changing the look of the million pictures that were already on my phone!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yay!! Finally. I downloaded it and made a post linking back to you :) I don't really understand it yet but it's fun anyway :)
