Instagram has launched a new version of its photo sharing iPhone app in the App Store. Instagram lets you share your photos in a simple photo stream with friends to see – and follow your friends’ photos with the click of a single button. Every day you open up Instagram, you’ll see new photos from your closest friends, and creative people from around the world.
In a blog post to announce Instagram v2.0, the team said: Today, we’re excited to announce the release of one of the largest revamps to the Instagram app since it launched nearly a year ago. Since the day we launched, one core part of the app has remain largely unchanged: the camera. In the past, we’ve added filters & tilt-shift, but the base technology has never evolved. Today that all changes as we introduce a complete upgrade to Instagram’s camera with a brand new technology layer.
