Instagram Receives Yet Another Update, Includes Tablet Support This Time

A new update for Instagram popped up within the last half hour and includes a handful of things, most notably tablet support. Not that we recommend you walk around the streets taking photos with a giant slate in your hands, but having the ability to check your Instagram feed and upload photos is a nice addition. The Instagram team also tossed in “install to SD card” support and fixed a bunch of bugs.

Cheers Aaron!

  • Nice app for the tablets…..

  • I read with great interest.Thanks for you sharing.

    • cizzlen

      I lol’d

  • Bob Martin

    Good. now all the tablet version needs is a tablet UI that works in landscape and portrait

  • AdgeG

    I’ve been impressed with the quick bug fixes. I have to imagine getting it to work properly on so many configurations has to be tough. I am surprised at all of the complaining about the app though. I mean, there are thousands of other apps to use but this one seems to get so much hate. I’m glad it’s out for Android now. Users complain that iOS gets everything, then when it comes to Android, people complain about the app and developer.


  • Grimlyte

    Whats kind of funny… even though this was CLEARLY an IOS app first, unless they changed it since last week, There is no Ipad version of this app.  Android got tablet support first.

    Not available on transformer prime. 

  • Still not compatible with the D2G… wtf could it possibly need to operate?

    • Raven

      I have had installed it on my D2G since it came out.

  • For browsing purposes, it’s a pretty darn great experience to see all the photos on a large screen. Been using the app on my Android Touchpad since it was released.

  • Glad it’s on tablet, except for it does not do landscape, which kind of defeats the purpose for the most part…

  • meh…got instagram, but find that Streamzoo offers more options, such as tilt-shift and video.

    jesus… are you going to update us every time these aholes update their stupid app????

    • Your rage makes me giggle. 😛
      And I’m sure once the hype dies down a bit we won’t post as much about it, so no worries. 

      • Google

        …but droid-life is encouraging the hype. Let the hype die already. You guys don’t have to be a hipster blog.

        • But we’re hipsters lol 


          • Noyfb

            I thought hipsters only used iphones, or do they use android to be ironic?

      • Michael_NM

        It may not be wise to giggle at the rage of a man whose “motto” is “LockedNLoaded @ all times.” 😛

      • FortitudineVincimus

        social networking rage is hatred that runs deep in me. real deep.

    • Stewie

      He, so scroll over it. I have no use for it either, but there are those who otherwise might want to know….

    • Azndan4

      no one cares about instagram

    • potacho

       No one cares about you not caring.

  • Cam

    I am not a huge fan of the app or social network behind it, but I have to give great big kudos to the guys at Instagram for the support. I don’t remember seeing bug fixes and user requested features added on any app this quickly before.

    • OhAaron

      I like the social network behind it, but I’m most impressed with all of the support they are providing.  A lot of developers treat their Android Apps like the red headed step-child, so I’m supporting them.

  • Michael_NM

    This is a perfect combination of two things I’ll never use: The camera on my Xoom, and Instagram.

  • I guess its time to uninstall the side loaded .apk!

  • Vitszub

    Do you work for instagram?

    • justinmullet

      It’s a Trending Android app. Therefore it deserves some spotlight on a popular android blog. Simple as that.

      We don’t need you to read every single change log to us. Get a twitter or something, this isn’t blogging.

      • gilmourd

        I’d say that it’s big news that an app that had previously excluded a pretty big segment of Android devices now supporting them is more than just a change log update.

        That said… My Transformer Prime still isn’t supported, apparently. 🙁

  • OhAaron

    xD Woot, you guys covered it.

  • Johngi

    i had a quick question, will this update fix the fact i cant use a whole picture, instead of a square?

    or is the iphone app like that as well?

    • OhAaron

      I don’t think so.  I’m pretty sure that Instagram forces the square aspect on both iOS and Android.

    • Square. Only square. Makes it so Insta’s layout can be uniform. 

      • Johngi

        i can almost swear i seen people with full screen shoot on instagram but maybe that was on twitter
        thanks fellas
