Instagram for Android introduces tilt-shift effect
Instragram for Androild made a long-anticipated debut recently, and now the app got updated with one more awesome filter allowing you to add a tilt-shift, miniature effect to your photographs.

The effect was present in the original iOS version of the application but was notably missing on Android. Now, with tilt-shift the Android app is one step closer to the iOS one. 

So what exactly is tilt-shift? The effect comes from a specific type of camera lens that gives selective focus and a overall toyish effect to scenes, making buildings and people for example look out-of-perspective small. You can also place the focus creatively, but while Android phones don’t support lenses, the Instagram simulates the effect via software tweaks.

For those who dont see the new effects, they are on the top bar when applying effects.
Working great on my GS2, there's nothing paticularly amazing about Instagram by the way, but its a nice way to social network using pics and involves a bit of creativity which is nice.
