Instagram’s API uses the OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication and authorization. OAuth 2.0 allow developers to start using the Instagram API almost immediately. All requests to the API must be made over SSL (https:// not http://)
For the most part, Instagram’s API only requires the use of a client_id. A client_id simply associates your server, script, or program with a specific application. However, some requests require authentication – specifically requests made on behalf of a user. Authenticated requests require an access_token. These tokens are unique to a user and should be stored securely. Access tokens may expire at any time in the future.
In many situations, you may not need to authenticate users at all. For instance, you may request popular photos without authenticating (i.e. you do not need to provide an access_token; just use your client ID with your request). Authentication is required in cases where your application is making requests on behalf of a user (commenting, liking, browsing a user’s feed, etc.).

Instagram work on any camera phone with Android 2.2 or above with support for OpenGL ES 2. Instagram for Android cannot be run on tablet devices at this time.
OpenGL ES 2 is a special graphics processing language that exists on modern-day devices. Instagram uses this language and phone’s GPU to make filters fast an efficient, and therefore it’s required to run Instagram. Phones older than 2.2 without OpenGL ES 2 don’t have the technology required to power Instagram’s filters
Instagram for Android is available on Google Play.
Facebook announced that it has reached an agreement to acquire Instagram, a fun, popular photo-sharing app for mobile devices.
The total consideration for San Francisco-based Instagram is approximately $1 billion in a combination of cash and shares of Facebook. The transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions, is expected to close later this quarter.
This is an important milestone for Facebook because it’s the first time we’ve ever acquired a product and company with so many users. We don’t plan on doing many more of these, if any at all. But providing the best photo sharing experience is one reason why so many people love Facebook and we knew it would be worth bringing these two companies together.
