Facebook isn't the only one planning an Instagram rival. Pool Party is Google's Android based answer to the crazed phenomenon. The app is in beta testing now and is on an invite only basis.

Designed by Slide, it's similar to Instagram and they're both social photo sharing apps. Instagram is meant primarily for individuals, but Pool Party on the other hand is meant for partying!

Party = group, and this means group sharing, where individuals contribute photos into a group album. Will it take off?
