There’s no shortage of apps on the App Store for browsing Instagram using your iPhone and iPad, and most let you enjoy snaps from people you follow far more elegantly that on Instagram’s official iPhone app. But wouldn’t it be great if you could check out the latest Instagram photos anywhere in iOS, with a simple pull-down gesture?

I love Instagram but have always had a first-world problem with its paltry photo resolution. In today’s age of ultra-crisp mobile screens, 640-by-640 pixel images just don’t cut it anymore. Well, it took only a couple of years but Instagram just announced that it is rolling out support for bigger, crisper images on both iOS and Android.

“We’re rolling out 1080×1080 uploads (and higher-quality viewing) for Instagram on iOS and Android,” Instagram co-founder Mike Krieger wrote in a tweet today.

Instagram tidies up web profiles with bigger pictures and less clutter

It may be a tad late for spring cleaning, but Instagram redesigned profile pages on the web to cut down on the clutter. On both mobile and desktop, profile pages, hashtag collections and your home feed are all getting tweaks to make things a bit neater. Desktop profiles, for example, nix the rotating image header up top and display larger images in rows of three instead of five. The changes get rid of the added boarders, button styles and more that the mobile app's redesign already updated in favor of a cleaner, flatter look. Not seeing the new design yet? Don't worry, it's rolling out now and you should be seeing it by the end of the week. %Gallery-slideshow295720%
