Is Instagram your go-to photo app on that trusty Android handset? If so, you're about see a improved performance with a new look. The filter-powered social snapshot software has been updated with a more polished UI that "feels native and at home on any Android device." This means simplified (read: flat) design elements are used throughout and the app is faster and more responsive all the way around, on larger gadgets and smaller feature phones too. The difference is immediately visible in the main navigation bar across the bottom. Some controls have been shuffled around, but the outfit promises the changes are in the interest of maximum usability, making the app "faster, cleaner and easier to use than ever." If your Android device doesn't alert you to update the app, mosey over to the Google Play store today and snag it.
