    We've talked time and time again about how Android's principal problem on tablets is apps. In short: there aren't any. Well, that's not true. In fact, almost any app available in the Android Market (ahem, Google Play Store) can be downloaded and run on a tablet. That's somewhere in the neighborhood of a half-million applications you can install and run on your Android tablet. That's awesome. Problem is, they're not very good. If you don't own an Android tablet, allow me to explain. The issue is really one of design: though app functionality is duplicated almost perfectly on the tablet ...

    Since its release in October 2010, Instagram has provided creatively inclined phone-photographers a platform for easily applying filters and borders to photos, and a social network for sharing them. Instagram also offers integration with Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare, ensuring that even if you've never heard of the app, you've probably seen its handiwork. Of course, Instragram isn't the only app to do this; competitors like Hipstamatic and Camera+ offer much of the same functionality. Instagram differs in two important aspects: it's free, and as of yesterday, it's available on Android. ...
