Being acquired by Facebook, Instagram app for iOS has just been updated to the latest version of 3.2. The new features and improvements added include camera redesign, new Willow filter, improved tilt-shift and some more.
With the camera being the core part of Instagram experience since the day it launched, the most significant change is made to its look and speed. The camera improvements include the following:
• Instagram-themed shutter & shutter release button.
• A preview of the most recent photo on your camera roll.
• Improved Camera Roll image selector (iPhone 5 only) for quick access to your last photograph.
• Optional grid guide for live photos and a permanent grid guide for the scale & crop screen.
• Speed and reliability improvements.
Number of users asked for new filter additions, and now the Willow is introduced, described as: “a monochrome filter with subtle purple tones and a translucent glowing white border. This filter works well on portraits, still life and architecture photographs with contrast.” The existing tilt-shift effect has been improved, now giving a vastly more realistic rendering of depth of field because of these improvements and subtle tweaks to how we render the image
As for the rest of the added improvements, check the list below:
• News Feed redesign - easier to digest, in addition to larger images.
• Beautiful new welcome screen design.
• Infinite scroll on user profiles and other grid views.
• Filtered photos are now saved to a separate album called “Instagram” in the iOS camera roll.
• Foursquare button on location pages that opens the Foursquare application, or mobile website, with details about the venue.
