Instagram iPhone

While you were out at your company Christmas party tonight, the Instagram 1.0.6 update hit the App Store. The update features bug fixes, performance enhancements, additional languages support — and two new filters!

Hello Sutro and Toaster. Good-bye Poprocket and Lily.

The new filters are pretty cool and pretty usable. I’ll be going to them more often than the two they replace (although I really will kinda miss Poprocket. Sutro desaturates and fades the colors, while Toaster is another excellent lomo-style filter, a little bit warm with some yellow added in the mix. Users have been asking for new filters for Instagram for a while and these two are welcome additions.

Sadly, the long-rumored higher resolution output is not in this update. This version still saves processed photos at 612×612 pixels.

Instagram is a hugely popular social photo app and is free in the App Store. You can find me on Instagram @MartyNearDFW.
