Instagram Receives First Update on Launch Day, Camera Crashes Fixed

Ahh the beauty of the Android platform. Instagram was finally released this morning and already, its creators have released the first bug fixer to make it more stable on your phone. A handful of phones were seeing crashes with the camera open – those have hopefully been fixed now.

Everyone enjoying their new social camera toy? If you haven’t already, be sure to stop by our “First Android Instagram Photos” page and share.

On a related note, this list of i*hone users responding to news of Instagram hitting Android is nothing short of priceless.

    I have a Droid. App store ,google play, whatever, says instagram isn’t compatible with my phone? My gf has the exact phone on a crap carrier and was able to get it, what am I missing here? Why cant I get instagram?

  • MickealaSherie

    Mine isnt working still , what should I do I have the newest mytouch

  • frankandsimple

    you have to admit.. when the polling was done.. most android users swore never to use instagram.. and here we are today. 

  • rafaelvalezquez

    Its funny because all of the tweets are all women or should I say dumb girls. Does It really matter??

  • Downey1971

    Did anyone else notice that most of those people were black…

       What People?

  • What’sup

    My skyrocket( I know this is a Verizon blog, but after leaving page plus I still check back here all the time) running the ics leak crashed when the camera took a pic. In fact it would completely shut my phone off every time I tried.

  • It’s funny how they think they have best phone ever. The people I talk to that have i*hones only have them for the same reason most don’t switch operating systems, they know what they have and change isn’t for them right now. This post actually has an option, http://www.droid-life.com/2012/03/28/video-android-user-spends-30-days-with-iphone-4s-talks-advantages-of-ice-cream-sandwich/ , I will hear him, not these other people.

  • Mjhzoom

    Still no fix for Droid X2….

    • Mjhzoom

       My camera driver was still crashed from yesterday.  I rebooted the phone and Instagram worked.

  • summit1986

    I’ll give i*hone users a reason to say EW.  I’m going to get as many as possible to follow me, then post a picture everytime I take a crap of my “creation”.  Mission: ruin everything Apple fanboys hold sacred.  Trollin’ ain’t easy.

  • Jukboxhero

    yo on the real, im mad about it…instagram has a bunch of almost useless filters and thats all? i can think of at least 3 similar apps already successful on android that do a better job than instagram. the only part i like about it actually is how they integrate it socially 

  • Scip

    Notice how half the ew posts are teenage girls.

  • alphabets13

     seems to be working on my DX….but keeps crashing even after the update on my wife’s Gnex whn you try to access your gallery/pics through the app.

  • Q

    When I try to update my profile in the settings, the form dissapears and I cant submit the changes…. oh Android….

  • Ew. I can’t believe there are people out there with i*hones. 

  • Why do people with I*hones always have to be effing hipsters? Don’t they know they just look bad.

  • Unfortunately, if you use Swype and you try to update your Geotag Location, the Location textbox freaks out (maybe as it tries to do an instant search). You have to switch to a non-Swype tappable keyboard.

    I’ve submitted a bug request, but it’s such an odd thing… I just hope other people do too.

  • mine keeps saying “image too small” im still rockin the OG droid x so idk if its just cuz its “old” or what

  • phaded

    Trolling the iCrap users is the best part of the app. It’s amazing to me the hatred they have lol… Calling Android section 8 housing, and Reebok and Faygo and etc etc… I don’t remember any iph0nes having quad core HD screens with 4+ inch screens and LTE and flash… I could go on. Hilarious.

  • Obvious Sarcasm

    Ew… Goes to show how unique and “creative” they all are.

  • Mike

    ……..know how I know you’re gay? You use the words “ew” and “yuck” in your pro-apple/anti-android tweets.

  • and it’ll give iPhone users another thing to bitch about.

  • Liderc

    It was fun for like 3 minutes, done now. 

  • Do what I do:  look at the list of people who don’t want Android users to follow them and take the shittiest, blurriest photos.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Pretty sure iLame users are just upset due to the fact that Instagram is no longer exclusive to iOS. Or one of the reasons anyways.

    Also, so f’n what? You guys have had it for awhile now so be happy and stfu about it already.

    • kixofmyg0t

       I want Infinity Blade to come to Android. That’s what we REALLY need is some kick ass games for our platform to soar.

      • Dain Laguna

        if android ever got infinity blade i would jump ship immediately. thats seriously the one thing i’d miss the most. well that an ibooks

      • EvanTheGamer

        Oh yeah….that would be killer. Infinity Blade looks sick..but I’d still never get an iPhone just so I can play that game. Honestly though, I wanted one for the longest time, ever since the launch of the original back in 2007.

        I wanted an iPhone very badly, but I wasn’t EVER going to AT&T to get one. In fact, I despise that evil company way more than I dislike the iPhone, so there’s no way I’d jump from Verizon over to the wrong side of the tracks just so I can get an iDevice.

        So anyways…I waited and waited but iPhone never made it to Verizon, so I gave up waiting. “No more waiting I proclaimed”. So I decided to say screw it and get a Droid X instead. And from that day forward, I can honestly say I never looked back.

        THEN a few months later, the blasted iPhone finally decides to come to Verizon. At that moment though, I wasn’t even thinking about one, because I am an Android Lifer, now and forever.

  • justinmullet

    Absolutely doesn’t work on my OG Droid… I take a photo, apply a filter, and hit next and it immediately crashes. Anyone with the OG Droid who has this working? What ROM are you running? Help!

    • Raymond Zayas

      I use GPA19 and I’ve been using Instagram all day. I don’t get all the buzz but its a good way to waste time.

  • Knlegend1

    My life on Instagram will be short lived. Sorry I just don’t see the point of this app. 

  • Ray

    and this is what i posted on instagram 
    yfrog.com/kihsedp they didnt like it lol

  • I still have no idea what the point of this app is.

    • Fancy filters to spice up your pictures (and make you feel like a photographer even though you’ve never taken a class or know what an f-stop is).

      • kixofmyg0t

         I actually had no idea what it was until today. The only reason why I want it is because of all the crying from the iOS peoples.

        • LOL. I’ve wanted the app for a while because I like filters. Unlike most of the users though, I actually know how to use a camera.

  • Anyone have the app crash if you select a picture from your gallery?

    •  I’ll try it out.

    • Or take a picture with the default camera app?

    • GazaIan

      Yep, haven’t updated it though.

    • tommyj2062

      Reboot your phone I had the same issue and I’m running the same thing you are.

  • jeff3yan

    People who support any platform are hilarious.

    • I support the platform but people who create an “I’m better then you” approach in the fandom are childish. I have a “use what feels right” policy on technology.

      • jeff3yan

        Exactly. I feel that most people seem to defend their platform of choice to the death rather than acknowledge the pros and cons of each. Some kind of post-purchase justification.

        • Knlegend1

          Yeah thats so true. I recommend i-stuff to people who aren’t too into tech but honestly its a good platform. Just not for me that’s all. Honestly Windows Phone 7.5 is looking pretty good to me too. But I will always be Android. 

      • Jimneezy

        Best comment I’ve read all day, If I could shake your hand then I would

  • Samvelavich

    hey, it shows that i liked that photo! 😀

  • kixofmyg0t

    The list of i*hone users that say “Ew” is quite hilarious.  

    •  I loved that. Haters gonna hate man.

      • kixofmyg0t

         BTW we’re all “weed haters” whatever THAT means….

    • Liderc

      no kidding, EW? lol as if we needed anymore confirmation of their low IQ’s. 

      • I just assumed I was missing some new trend. What’s with the “Ew”?

        •  http://laist.com/2012/04/03/android_gets_instagram_sparks_class.php

          • kixofmyg0t

             I REALLY like all the “Android is second best” and “How’s it feel to be Reebok?” posts….

            So 30% market share is number one and 50% is “second best”? Who taught these kids math?!?!

          •  I know right. It’s ridiculous. To think, I used to be one of them…until the Droid 1 came along.

          • kixofmyg0t

             I doubt you were one of “them”. You simply had the same phone.

            I refused the i*hone mania from day one….and went…*ahem* Blackberry instead. Thankfully the Droid X rescued me from that madness. 

          • Oh I was one of them. I proclaimed that my phone was so much better, and for a short period of time it was. When the Droid 1 came out I liked it, but it took AT&T screwing me over for me to finally go hands on with the OG and that day was when I said screw iOS.

          • kixofmyg0t

             Well at least you came to your senses!

          • My friend call’s it the day “I got saved.”

          • I’d like to know who taught them English.

            Found this while browsing some Tweets:


          • kixofmyg0t


            I think I lost brain cells just reading that. I seriously have a slight headache now. No joke.

          • shooter50

            Ebonics, what a wonderful thing. 

        • kixofmyg0t

          My guess is they think we have cooties or something 😀


    • Tom

      These i*hone users crack me up. Do you think they realize how bad they look with these posts?

      • Noyfb

        At first glance i thought he wrote I’hoes instead of i’hones, I prefer i’hoes though. Because that what they really are. 

    • Raven

      Wow, just wow.  I generally try to give most people the benefit of the doubt, even if they are iPhone users.  I mean, they are people too, right?  But, these people are just plain sad.

  • fgonzo98

    I didn’t have any problems with the app, but I also haven’t really used the Instagram camera…using ProCapture…

  • I’ve had no problems with the app, but glad to see the update. So glad Instagram is finally here for Android.

  • Bradley Albert Nemitz

    For those wanting to save photos to their SD card without having to post them, here’s a how to: http://bit.ly/HXm317
