Instagram updated once again, brings support to tablets and Wifi devices

Instagram has received another update, this time opening the app to Android tablets and other Wifi devices. Not a lot has changed, as sideloading the old version on tablets or Wifi devices worked, but it's nice to see it done officially. The camera and picture import process is still broken on the Transformer Prime, but seems to work fine on both the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Tab 7 plus. It's a bit of a bummer, but with no support yet for the HTC One X camera, we expect the Tegra 3 has something to do with it.

The cool thing about using Instagram on a tablet is viewing the images in your stream, which works very nicely. We've got the download link after the break, grab the update if you've been wanting this on on your tablet.

Thanks, ohaaron!

  • Its funny cuz its true.
  • Not sure if this is new or not, but it now has app to SD....just thought I'd mention ;)
  • Definitely new.
  • Also works for the Xoom, too.
  • Working nicely on it too. Also it's worth noting that you can use your phone or tablets stock camera app if you want a little more functionality on snapping a photo.
  • Doesn't support HTC One X camera.
