Instagram for Android 4.0 updated with video recording & sharing

Instagram all the things!

Instagram for Android was updated to 4.1.2 on Google Play last night. The update adds video recording for all devices running Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), and also allows the sharing of videos from the photo library.

That's not the only new feature on Instagram, around a week ago the company confirmed that it will begin to show ads in some U.S feeds as well. 

Much like how "Sponsored" news posts that show up on Facebook can be hidden, ads that are found in an Instagram feed can also be hidden by users, along with a chance for those same users to give any feedback on the ads. Instagram did not state which specific companies will be signing up to provide the first ads for the service.

Ah well, you know there's no such thing as a free lunch, right?

You can check on your droid for updates, or head to the link below to update.

After using 6Tag for WP8, Instagram's UI on iOS and Android feels ugly. I think Instagram can do better and if not maybe they should hire Rudy.

lol I don't care about a better UI, I just want to be able to brag about how my platform has official apps and how WP doesn't even come close /s

well there's no hope for WP if it takes them this long to update an android app! But yes they should just hire him already!

Best part is that MS has already designed and made Instagram for WP except Instagram doesn't want to bring its app to WP. It will be funny when Google and Instagram eventually come to Windows once WP and Windows 8 picks up which is happening and will continue happening.

Surely showing a better looking and more efficient client is more important than whether it's "official" or not. When you demo something all people care about is how it looks/works.
