Instagram Releases New Filter In Update

Instagram has just been updated to version 3.2.0, and the new update brings a ton of new features and fixes as well as a new filter. The new filter, Willow, features a nice monochrome effect that has been much requested among Instagram users for quite some time. This update also brings a completely redesigned camera view, which looks a lot cleaner than past versions of the application.

Finally, Instagram and Foursquare have started to work together to offer Foursquare buttons on all location tagged photos within Instagram. When a user hits this button, they will be taken to the location’s Foursquare page where they can view more info on the location or check in.

We’ve embedded Instagram 3.2.0′s full change-log after the break.

A new filter! Willow
Take photos faster with Instagram’s all-new camera
Improved quality of tilt-shift
Scroll infinitely on user profiles and other grid views

Other improvements:
We added a Foursquare button on location pages that opens the Foursquare app (or Foursquare mobile website) with details about the venue
Filtered photos are now saved to a separate album called “Instagram” in the camera roll
New welcome screen design

This update seems to have fixed all of the major gripes I had with the old Instagram app. The redesigned camera view will hopefully fix past issues I’ve experienced with the application. The old camera view would often lag when taking photos, making them blurry. I’m also quite happy that the tilt-shift quality has been improved.

This Instagram update comes right around the same time that Twitter announced it will be bringing a set of eight photo filters to both its iOS and Android apps. Twitter partnered with photo startup Aviary to provide filters as well as other enhancement features in Twitter’s apps.
