Instagram Goes 3.0 – Sports Geotagging Maps, Interface Tweaks

Posted by at 9:35 am on August 17, 2012

Facebook-owned Instagram has released a major update of its app for iOS and Android, v3.0. The biggest addition this time around is the Photo Map, which appears on a person’s profile. This lets users browse images by where they were shot, so long as a photo has geotagged information associated with it. Grid and Chronological views are available, and selecting a stack of photos allows navigating through a collection; if the collection is a user’s own, images can be deleted.

Instagram has also smoothed out the interface, for instance including usernames in the header, adding a multi-line caption box, and enabling infinite scrolling in feeds. To deal with abuse, a new spam reporting system lets people flag both photos and comments.
