Instagram for Android recently sent out a minor update called version 1.1.2 that pledges to fix intermittent issues. It had been previously noted that some user images were making the app crash. Among the affected smart handsets that had been experiencing crashes on the popular photo sharing social network were the Samsung Galaxy S III, the HTC Evo 4G LTE, and the HTC One X.
This is a small update that does not bring much to the Instagram table. Nonetheless, it is a useful one, considering how annoying it is when an app crashes. It must even be more exasperating to experience the crashes while using one of the three mentioned phones, all of which are new and considered to be hot models.
On a larger scale, this minor bug fix demonstrates how important user satisfaction is to the team behind Instagram and Facebook, the company that owns Instagram. It has been only a short period of time since the complaints were received, given that the phones on which Instagram reportedly crashes are new. Yet, this software app has already rolled out this bug fix, however small it might be.
One of today’s most popular apps, Instagram has only been available for Android users for around a couple of months. Today, it gets a 4.6 user rating on Google Play, with 5 being the highest rating an app may receive. As free app, it boasts of already having somewhere between 10,000,000 to 50,000,000 installs. To use Instagram for Android devices, users need to have an Android unit with at least Android 2.2 Froyo Operating System.
Users can download or upgrade to the new Instagram for Android version on Google Play. Instagram recommends the upgrade even to those who do not own the Samsung Galaxy S III, the HTC Evo 4G LTE, and the HTC One X.
