Instagram for Android Version 5.1 Now Faster and More Responsive with New UI; Lux to come soon.


The developers of Instagram , an online photo-sharing, video-sharing and social networking service, announced a major update for Android in the form of Version 5.1 .

This update provides a refreshing new look with a brand new user interface (UI). The Android app also boasts of improved functionality such as faster processing and a more compatible system for Android gadgets.

Likewise, the app buttons have been reorganized to improve user navigation across various devices with different sized displays.

Since Instagram for Android gadgets came out about 2 years ago (2012 ? April), the app has lacked much development in various aspects like support for video and tablets, auto straightening, etc. With Version 5.1, Instagram aims to catch up with its commitment to the Android community.

Once the update is installed, the user can immediately see the difference in the UI.

The profile display loads up in double time and the app size itself was minimized to facilitate faster processing.

In a post in the Instagram blog, the developers also shared that the visuals of the app was simplified to make use of the screen space especially for devices with smaller displays. They also said that the buttons were redesigned to make it more user friendly for devices with larger displays.

Instagram adds that they have made sure that the app will look and feel every bit at home in any Android device.

The update comes at a very opportune time as many Instagram users noted that the iOS updates with additional creative tools ? like Lux – seem to outpace those for the Android app.

Instagram immediately assuaged the feelings of Android users by informing them that the Lux tool will soon be available for the Android app. The Lux tool allows Instagram users to play around with the brightness and color saturation of the images.

For Android device owners who use Instagram, it is highly recommended that you rush to the Google Play Store and get the Instagram Android Version 5.1.
