Instagram 3.0 debuts on Android

Instagram today announced a new version of their popular Android (and iOS) application which adds in a number of handy features.  This particular release (3.0) centers around the common theme of browsing experience, most notably with the debut of Photo Maps and redesigned user profiles.

We’ve introduced a new and unique way to browse your photos and others’ photos on a map, which means you’re no longer constrained to browsing through page after page of photos… all the screens in our app to be more visually consistent and polished. You’ll notice new layouts throughout the app that feel fresh, yet familiar. Our engineers have also been hard at work making sure that the browsing experience is as fast as possible. ..introduced infinite scrolling in feeds so that you can quickly see more photos while browsing around the app.

Users will also notice that the uploading page is refreshed with a new layout and additional options.  It’s possible to toggle the Photo Map setting, upload to Tumblr, Flickr, Foursquare, and other avenues.
