Instagram Updated in Play Store – Welcomes HTC One X Users To The Hipster Party

Another day, another Instagram update. Well, at least you can’t accuse the devs over at Instagram HQ of slacking off (favoritism, maybe). No, today’s update didn’t bring the much requested blur filter or combining photos into a single, collage of hipster pics. Today’s update brings the usual set of bugfixes with added support for Tegra 3 tablets and handsets, of which there is currently only one handset — the HTC One X.

For all you One X users out there (you, lucky Androids, you) who have been shut out of the service since its release, welcome to family. Have a cold Pabst on me. Oh, and feel free to drop my a line at @Gamercore, where I post pics of all my mishaps and adventures — using all available filters at my disposal.

    If the only reason hipstagram came to android was just to butthurt all the sheeple then I am ok with it.

    also check out the ics camera on any phone that runs it, The sharing utility (like gingerbread) is awesome, I do personally like the idea of hipstagram but I don’t need to monitor more than 2 social networks at a time so… yeah not a benefit for me but I am glad to see this come to android just to help me sway customers away from the iStatus

    Instagram is the most overhyped app I’ve ever seen. The stock HTC Sense camera app does everything that hipster nonsense does and more.

      Instagram isn’t filters. It’s a social network.
