Instagram notches 5 million Android downloads in first week


If you needed proof that Android users were anxious to get their hands on Instagram then we’ve got it for you.  According to figures in the Google Play Store, Instagram has eclipsed 5 million downloads already and is headed to 10 million.  The numbers are quite remarkable when you consider that the app had only been around six days when it passed the threshold.

Other fun figures to consider for Instagram include 430,000 pre-registration signups in few days that followed the beta program, and 2,000 sign-ups a minute when the app went live in the Google Play Store.  The graph indicates the number of downloads has subsided quite a bit since it first took off however we’re pretty certain most developers would be happy with the “dwindling” figures nonetheless.
