The breakout app from SXSW this year may be Highlight, or it may be Pinwheel. But the most exciting news? It's about Instagram, which is finally sort-of showing off a beta of its Android app.

According to TechCrunch's Kim-Mai Cutler, Instagram founder Kevin Systrom demonstrated the Android app onstage during an interview. Kind of.

Reports Cutler:

He waved it around very briefly on-stage, but he didn't give a full demo. (That's for later, and the company tells us they aren't totally ready for a walkthrough yet.)

So there's that! Also, they have 27 million users now, which is up by 12 million people since I talked to the company in January. Which is a lot. [TechCrunch]
