Instagram updates its Android and iOS apps
The new Instagram Android app, version 5.1, comes with an improved design that makes it faster and more responsive. Users should be able to notice that profile screens now load twice as fast. Instagram also reduced the overall app size in half. Thanks to new, simplified visuals, the app now makes “use of valuable screen space for small devices.” Buttons have been rearranged for a smoother navigation on larger Android devices, too.
Unlike the Android app, Instagram for iOS received only a minor update. This enhances lux control, letting you "strengthen or soften your photos with a custom slider."
Instagram for both Android and iOS are free to download in their respective app stores.

Good.. Now iDroids Instagram app is almost caught up with WP's Instagram app 6tag... Why doesn't Rudy just make 6tag available for all platforms??

Agree, Rudy's apps are quite awesome.
My friend owns a windows phone, and these apps are the reason I sometimes get jealous. He knows what and how to make and execute perfectly.

Here goes another proof that IOS apps are so much well designed and worked on than Android apps. I believe it's the reason iPhone seems to even open apps faster sometimes. The developers are to blame for all these. They work any how on android apps yet spend so much time on IOS apps. I just updated and the speed and lunch time of the app is totally dfrnt.
