Instagram update live in Google Play Store; update halts crashing issue on new Android models

Instagram

Instagram has been available for Android flavored smartphones for only two months. Now, some of the newly released Android handsets seem to have a problem with Instagram crashing. The popular photo filter and sharing app has had trouble standing on its own two feet for users of the Samsung Galaxy S III, the HTC One X and its cousin the HTC EVO 4G LTE. Facebook has spent too much money to allow the app to fail on three popular new devices, so Instagram has quickly issued an update already available on Google Play Store.

We'd love to tell you all about the long changelist for Instagram for Android version 1.1.2-but we can't. All that the Google Play Store has as new is "Fix for user images that were causing app to crash". Of course, even if you don't have any of the new models listed above, you will still be prompted to install the update. If you do own any of the hot new models and you have been having problems with Instagram, let us know if the update has solved your problem by simply leaving a comment in the box below.

Hope the update fixes the issues described. In the meantime, we sold all but one of our Evos. Some customers came from other stores where they were sold out. Oh yeah. I'd call that a successful launch. It took us a few days to sell out of our 4ses. :)

I know this is a stupid question but what exactly is Instagram? Is it something like Photobucket?

I say, it works fine on all iPhones. Look at how many updates instagram have pushed yet some device still can't use. Fragmentation is indeed on the horizon for Android.

Ok, what it does is put a vintage filter on your photos, and then you can share them within instagram and optionionally to facebook, Twitter etc.
