Dropping Instagram already? Try these Android alternatives

Dropping Instagram already? Try these Android alternativesEver since recent reports revealed that the trendy photo-sharing social app Instagram is being taken over by Facebook, the users of the app - which was widely considered to be a real `cool' one thus far - are already on the lookout for an alternative to Instagram, as they apparently do not like the idea of using the `Facebookstagram' version of the app.

For Instagram users who are already thinking of dropping the app, there are some other good photo-sharing Android options worth a try --- the three prominent ones among them being Lightbox, Picplz, and Flickr.

The Lightbox photo sharing app boasts a few more alternatives for the users as compared to Instagram. Other than sharing to its own social network, the app can also share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Foursquare; and it also gives the users the advantage of marking their photos as Public, Private, or Unlisted.

The amazingly simple-to-use Picplz is yet another camera replacement app which has its own built-in social network; and enables the users to geotag their pics, add captions to them, and of course, share to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and several other sites. With a clean and easy-to-navigate user interface, the Picplz app also gives users the benefit of viewing their Picplz activity on the Web.

Lastly, even though the extremely simple and nice-looking Flickr app - which connects superbly to the Yahoo-owned photo site Flickr - is not a very powerful click-and-share photo app, it has long been a destination for photo buffs on the Web, and boasts a remarkably active user community!
