back to article Instagram on iPhone 5: Now you can spoil even MORE snaps

Apple iPhone 5 owners can now ruin tint and enrich more photos in one go on their new mobes, thanks to the extra 18 per cent of screen space and an updated Instagram app. The photo-filter biz has just updated the user-interface in its software for Apple's mobile operating system iOS 6 and the iPhone 5.

Instagram would be cooler

if you didn't need an account.

I got instragram ages ago and liked it, but I don't see the need of the social stuff, so I didn't bother using it for ages and now I can't even remember my username and password. Maybe I should just get hipstamatic or something.
