if you don’t use instagram, i suggest not reading this because it’s just a review of the new version… and my complaints that follow with it. (of course…)
so it’s been a week since the instagram upgrade, and i’ve just realized that my eyeballs were NOT deceiving me… they made seemingly drastic changes to existing filters, and three of my favorite ones are just totally removed no thanks to the four new (in my opinion, mediocre, that all look alike?) filters. also: that new live/auto-preview while you’re applying the filter… #worst! now personally, i can’t decide what damn filter i want to use because of the live change. i miss just clicking the filter and seeing it.
i also noticed that when uploading the images to my flickr account, the filter that’s been chosen is no longer provided as a tag. something super small, but i did appreciate that.
i also can’t revert back to the previous version because itunes auto-deletes the old version on app upgrades, and i totes emptied my recycling bin since then. i searched for the .ipa file and i couldn’t find it
so. pissed. off.
and this hurts my little heart.
in my own little dreamworld, they would do a public vote on their website to see how people really feel about this upgrade. (and go back and just apply some of the changes) :( </3
if not, maybe some genius could make an app of the old instagram filters… that would be amazeballs.
dear instagram, if you ever read this…
you. broke. my. heart.
NOW FIX IT….. AND FIX THE APP, TOO.
