    Instagram today updated its iOS app to version 4.2, redesigning the look of the app for iOS 7 with a "focus on clarity." In addition to a revamp, Instagram has also gained higher resolution photos and videos that now stretch to the edges of the screen.

    Along with edge-to-edge photos and videos, Instagram's grid view has been streamlined, incorporating larger thumbnails. The app also has circular profile pictures to better fit into the iOS 7 ecosystem. Aside from a changed look, the app's functionality remains the same.

    Instagram can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

    The app icon has not been redesigned, contrary to what the article states.

    Are notifications finally fixed now? Whenever I opened notifications they'd never get dismissed, I had to manually dismiss them from the NC.

    I understand that their icon is, well, iconic, but I was hoping they'd redesign it. That thing's got to go.

    I do like the new design of the app, though I wish they'd have done something a little different with the bottom bar.

    Loving the new look, although still needs to be worked with.
    The black icons at the bottom look very out of place.

    Edit

    I didn't read crazyspartan678's post correctly.

    I guess it's not technically a redesign, but it is a slight refresh. Slightly different header animation, the text looks like it lost a little bit of weight, the settings icon is different, the profile picture is now a circle, and now there is more white everywhere.

    Right?
    So many big named apps are really missing the mark on iOS 7 design. I don't think many people 'get' iOS 7 design. :sigh:

    Oh, I was referring to the app home page icon, which looks extremely out of place in iOS 7

    Everyone apart from that dude knew you were referring to the app icon, as the article falsely claims the app icon has been redesigned.

    Refresh looks good, but Instagram seems oblivious to the fact people would like to use the service on an iPad.

    Maybe we just want to browse photos on the app that's designed for the iPad?

    Some folks still use digital cameras that aren't built into their phones for better quality/ability, and would like to view, edit and upload photos on their iPads.

    Exactly.

    Functionality did change as I can no longer swipe left to right to move back a screen.
