Instagram gets updated with performance boost and flat, redesigned UI

Instagram Update 1

Despite countless new services coming out, Instagram remains popular and widely used. I myself have gone back to using Instagram. It’s a strangely compelling service. However, with the latest update, it has gotten significantly better. Though this update doesn’t add any new features, it’s still awesome.

This update redesigns the user interface. Instead of the old and ugly interface, you’ll see flat design everywhere. It’s actually quite appealing, though not as much as a Holo redesign would be. Along with the pretty new user interface comes a performance boost, according to Instagram.

The update is definitely much appreciated and should attract a few more “Android purists” who demand a cohesive look to their apps. While Instagram is not quite Holo styled, it somewhat looks the part. Head to the Play Store on your device or hit the widget to download the update, and tell us what you think!
