Instagram Adds iPhone 5 Support

Tuesday September 25, 2012 2:27 PM PDT by Jordan Golson
With the iPhone 5 in the wild for five days now, major apps continue to be updated for the device's larger screen. Today, popular photography app Instagram was updated with iPhone 5 and iOS 6 support. However, as The Next Web points out, Instagram's square photography method doesn't gain much from the iPhone 5's larger screen.

But the capture mode is a tad awkward, as Instagram’s square capture window isn’t really able to take advantage of the larger screen real-estate. Also, curiously, the live filtration options seem to be gone on iOS 6. We’re not sure if that’s a bug or what.
Instagram was purchased by Facebook earlier this year, and the Facebook iOS app was one of the first major apps to add support for the 4" screen.

Instagram is a free download on the App Store. [Direct Link]

It's the main use - look at my crappy photo I made worse with some bad filter. Not sure what twitter has to do with it, I never said anything about twitter.


i know you didn't, but i was making an analogy.

people hate on twitter because they don't understand why it's around.

Just because people don't like certain things, it's not "hating". It's great that people want to share photos, but every one of them doesn't have to have a vignette with some random filter.
