Instagram Updated for iOS 7 With Larger, Higher Resolution Images

Instagram today updated its iOS app to version 4.2, redesigning the look of the app for iOS 7 with a "focus on clarity." In addition to a revamp, Instagram has also gained higher resolution photos and videos that now stretch to the edges of the screen.

We put the community—and the photos and videos you share—first. To bring you the best experience possible, we have always valued beauty and simplicity in our app. With the introduction of iOS 7 and its emphasis on clarity, we were excited to rebuild the look and feel of Instagram in a way that would bring these principles together and let the moments this community captures and shares shine.

In this update you will find that we’ve increased the size of photos and videos in your feed so that they expand to the edges of your screen. We’re also happy to say that increased size means increased resolution, so photos and videos will be clearer and more vibrant than ever.
Along with edge-to-edge photos and videos, Instagram’s grid view has been streamlined, incorporating larger thumbnails. The app also has circular profile pictures to better fit into the iOS 7 ecosystem. Aside from a changed look, the app’s functionality remains the same.

Instagram can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Right?
So many big named apps are really missing the mark on iOS 7 design. I don't think many people 'get' iOS 7 design. :sigh:

I understand that their icon is, well, iconic, but I was hoping they'd redesign it. That thing's got to go.

I do like the new design of the app, though I wish they'd have done something a little different with the bottom bar.

The app icon has not been redesigned, contrary to what the article states.

Are notifications finally fixed now? Whenever I opened notifications they'd never get dismissed, I had to manually dismiss them from the NC.

Refresh looks good, but Instagram seems oblivious to the fact people would like to use the service on an iPad.

Maybe we just want to browse photos on the app that's designed for the iPad?
