It was back towards the end of June that Facebook announced some significant new implementations to Instagram for iOS and Android, bringing both apps up to version 4.0 with the introduction of a new, Vine-like video feature, also known as Instagram Video. Over the past six weeks, users have taken to the new feature like a duck to water, and now, version 4.1 is upon us. The update, which once again spans both iOS and Android, offers different alterations to each, with the most notable being an auto-straightening feature in the iOS iteration. Catch the full details after the break.
Instagram is easily among the most popular networks for sharing photos, but with the video clip social spot Vine having grown quite rapidly in the past few months, Facebook has just brought a similar feature to its recently-acquired Instagram app. Although many users have jumped at the chance of sharing clips and thus, taken advantage of the new feature, it is not without its limitations. For example, there is no support for sharing short clips already filmed and saved to the media library, but as is often the case with minor quibbles, there's a jailbreak tweak now available to remedy the issue. It is called InstaChooser, and you can catch the details after the break.
As you're probably aware by now, this week was big for the Facebook-owned social network Instagram. After months of speculation, following the release of Twitter's Vine video sharing app / service, Instagram finally introduced their competitor to the short six second video network taking the world by storm. What makes this a nice addition, is that it's a new built-in feature to already existing Instagram app. No new icon needed.
As we heard a couple of days back and thus, expected Facebook to announce at its next "big idea" event today, the social network has stepped out and confirmed that Instagram will indeed be bringing Vine-like video support, meaning users will be able to record and keep short, memorable clips alongside their snaps. The announcement could well spell the beginning of the end for a Vine app that has been making reasonable headway in recent times, while also helping to expand and broaden Instagram's already seemingly insatiable appeal.
