Instagram tries a faster, sleeker Android photo editor

Not happy with having to wade through filters and other editing tools just to post your Instagram shots? You might have a much simpler solution in the near future. Droid-Life has noticed that Instagram is trying out a new photo editor on Android that squeezes things into a single, simpler page that lets you add comments, tag people and apply filters. You only have to jump to another screen if you're eager to make in-depth tweaks.

Don't expect to try this editor just yet. You need to be running Instagram 7.3 (which isn't automatically rolling out to everyone), and the new interface only appears to be available to a handful of people -- we couldn't get it to show up on 7.3 despite following instructions to the letter. For now, this is more of an experiment than a full-fledged upgrade.
