Instagram recently removed its Cards support for exporting photos to Twitter, but the popular photo-sharing app is grabbing attention for adding an improved camera and a new filter to the Apple iOS version of the app. The latest version of the Instagram iPhone app includes a revamped camera interface that includes a brand new design and shutter button. A new "Willow" filter has been added that is monochrome with a hint of purple and glowing edges, which is also available in the latest update for Android. Tilt-shift has been adjusted to have a subtler blur effect courtesy of a revised algorithm.
The latest version has also added:
- 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.
- News Feed redesign that's easier to digest, in addition to larger images.
- 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.
