Download & Install Instagram 1.0.6 on Samsung Galaxy Ace, Tutorials Included

Just about two days ago, Instagram for Android was updated to version 1.0.5, now we are at Instagram 1.0.6 wherein the sixth update brought minor tweaks and a brand-specific improvement. Instagram 1.0.6 adds more support for Samsung Galaxy Ace device which I am going to talk about in due course of this article. The Instagram team or the people behind the development, maintenance and updating of the most controversial Android app seems to be so inspired that almost every day they release updates, albeit minor. It’s still a good sign that the team is dedicated in making the app the most supported and stable even if it is offered for free on Google Play Store.

Instagram 1.0.6

Instagram 1.0.6 is actually the sixth update within this month, just almost three weeks after the app was launch. And we got a tip that Instagram 1.0.7 may also be on its way for release and that could happen in the next couple of days. Anyway, there are actually just two enhancements done to the app for this update and one of them is device specific and intended for Samsung Galaxy Ace.

Instagram 1.0.6 Enhancements/Features

Lux is now available in Samsung Galaxy Ace. Lux actually provides more of an artistic effect on the photos. With this, you can expect more vibrant, deeper and more vivid photos. You will be able to notice that the lighting was dramatically improved in this version of Instagram for Android. You could even say that Galaxy Ace may have better quality of photos in Instagram than other Android devices, but everything actually depends on the quality of the lens, environmental factors, and artistry in talking shots. Lux serves only as enhancement and it serves its purpose really well.

Addressed reported bugs and known issues. As much as the Intagram team has been striving so hard to make the app perfect, there would always be some bugs and known problems. While other users would eventually complain immediately after experiencing some bugs, flaws or inconsistencies, they tend to go soft when reporting to the team or when commenting knowing that the team behind this great app are always working to find and address issues. The fact that new updates are released almost every other day is evident that we are getting the support we need to continue using Instagram for Android with ease.
