Instagram for Android gets tablet support

updated 05:55 pm EDT, Fri April 6, 2012

Instagram on Android updated yet again

Instagram for Android in its latest of multiple updates (Google Play) has been given a significant boost to its compatibility. It now runs on tablets and Wi-Fi only devices. While tablets don't get a truly optimized layout, the app should stretch to fit the larger screen.

Users now have the option of installing on an SD card, instead of main memory, if space is tight. A bug that silenced audio during capture has been patched up, and the title has multiple bug fixes and other "improvements."

Running the app still depends on having an Android 2.2 or later device with OpenGL ES. Including non-phone hardware also now requires that the device have a camera, which rules out the Amazon Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet.
