Instagram Overhauls Android App, Improves Performance
Instagram today made a new version of its photo-sharing application available to Android devices. Instagram said that it worked hard to reduce the size of the app and the resources it needs to run, which means it is faster and more nimble on a wider range of devices. Instagram says users' profile screens should load twice as fast, for example. Instagram also said that it simplified visuals and design elements to make them more intuitive to use - while still retaining all the power and features that have always been part of the app. Instagram 5.1 is free to download from the Google Play Store.
