The wildly popular photo-sharing site Instagram released its app for Android devices. This comes about a year and a half after the app launched for iOS, Apple's mobile operating system, which has about 30 million users. On launch day, Instagram said it had 430,000 people on the Android waiting list. The app runs on any camera phone with Android 2.2 or above with support for OpenGL ES 2. But it won't yet run on Android tablets. The app includes the same filters as the iPhone app. But there are some missing features.

PARK CITY, Utah - Courtney Love was scurrying out the door of Kari Feinstein's Style Lounge, a pop-up swag suite coinciding with this week's Sundance Film Festival, a goodie bag heaving with free jewelry and spa treatments firmly in hand. Inside, pop singer/reality TV star Ashlee Simpson, along with former “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” star Kevin Sorbo were halfway through their respective gifting tours.

Maybe Instagram needs a better filter for how it announces its deals. Its user base seems to have a twitchy reaction with every announcement. Last week, it was the end of the world as they knew it for iPhone users, who had the Instagram universe all to themselves until Android users were given the keys. It seemed a photo joust might have been in order. And now Facebook has announced it's buying the super popular photo-sharing app and social network for $1 billion. As @HmSeb put it on Twitter, Instagram is in a relationship now, and it's complicated.

The same milestone took about six months for the iPhone app to reach. Of course, the Instagram community had been nascent in the early days of the iPhone app, whereas now it is established and robust. So robust that Facebook had to snap it up for $1 billion.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Good news for skateboarding dogs everywhere: You can now embed Instagram videos and photos across the Web. Last month when Instagram launched video to compete with Twitter's Vine, there was a collective groan. It lacked a key feature: the ability to embed videos elsewhere on the Web. So, just to make their visual moments much more visible, crafty people came up with all kinds of complicated workarounds that were not supported by Instagram and could, of course, break at any time.

Four suspected burglars were arrested Sunday after Northern California police tracked them down -- with an assist from Instagram. Officers received four different reports of cars being broken into Saturday evening in Rocklin. Among the things taken from the cars were GPS devices and wallets, police told Fox 40. Investigators say one of the victims reported seeing a $120 charge at a Carl's Jr. on her credit card, which had been stolen.

Instagram is dealing with major backlash after announcing terms of service changes that say the social network may let companies pay to use your photos in their advertisements. Numerous users, including many photographers, have announced their plans to stop using or leave the Facebook-owned social network. Notably and quite embarrassingly, Noah Kalina, the photographer who shot Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg's wedding this year, said he'll be leaving the service if Instagram doesn't change the new terms of service.
