Instagram gets the iOS7 treatment

Instagram has become the latest iOS app to be updated with a new flat interface to match iOS7.

The most noticeable, and beneficial, change is images and videos now cover the full width of the screen, which is nice improvement, especially as it is coupled with higher resolution uploads. For some reason the icons for accounts have changed to circles – a strange choice, given that all the images are square on Instagram – but apart from that the new interface looks nice and clean and brings more focus on the pictures.

There is still no iPad functionality, which is commonly asked for. That said, iPad functionality might see an increase in people taking pictures with their iPads – so on second thoughts, keep it iPhone only please Instagram!
