Instagram iOS App Updated

The fate of Instagram was somewhat up in the air, when it was announced that Facebook had acquired the popular iOS photo sharing app. It was quickly learned that the app would be sticking around, and the updates have kept coming. Today, Instagram has been updated to version 2.5 and brings a few new features and bug fixes.


One of the biggest new features is the option to share your Instagram “Likes” on Facebook. Sure, you could always share Instagram photos on Facebook, but now when you Like a photo in Instagram, it is automatically shared on your Facebook Timeline, as long as you authorize the app to do so. Also worth noting is, your in-app profile tab has a new lay out.

Here is a list of all the new features:

  • Revamped profile tab
  • Search for users and tags in the Explore tab
  • Improvements to commenting
  • User search autocompletes based on people you follow
  • Visual improvements
  • Speed optimizations
  • Optionally share likes to Facebook (enable in your Profile > Sharing Settings > Facebook)
