Instagram with Material Design concept looks amazing
Android L is bringing a whole new look to Android later this year, and we've already seen the new Material Design language popping up in small amounts in various Google apps. We don't yet know how other developers will take to Google's new design, but designer Emmanuel Pacamalan has put together a concept of what Instagram could look like.

Frankly, we really hope that designers jump on the Material Design wagon, because what Pacamalan has mocked up looks beautiful. The animations are playful, and the overall look makes the app feel alive. It's unclear exactly how long Instagram will take to update its app with Material Design, but it may not be too long, because Instagram did update its app for iOS 7 pretty soon after the official update went out. 

What do you guys think? How does the Material Design revolution look?

Like what? I'd say it looks better than Instagram Beta on WP8.1 and Instagram on iOS 7 by a long shot. Much better contrast with the colors.

I knew opening this article there'd be at least one saying it looks like something else. If that's all you've got is similarity, you got squat on a burning platform, enjoy.

Design is everything. When you have a design that have similarity with others in the competition, surely you will get these kind of comments. I remembered the time when skeumorphic was still in and everybody went skeumorphic too. This time when flats were relevant, everyone goes flat again. Im not pointing who started it what, its what you think when you see one. Not that distinction when you see one you remember something else's. Its identity and uniqueness.
