Instagram has pushed out an upgrade to both the iOS app and Android app. iOS – which is good for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch – has been updated to version 2.5.0, while the Android app gets bumped to version 1.1.4. The biggest change is to the iOS app as it received a slight overhaul, specifically to the “Explore” tab. This groups together all the popular photos and also includes a search box where you can find both photos and users by hashtags. The full change log of both apps are listed below:

What’s New in Apple iOS Version 2.5.0:
– Revamped profile tab
– Search for users and tags in the Explore tab
– Improvements to commenting
– User search autocompletes based on people you follow
– Visual improvements
– Speed optimizations
– Optionally share likes to Facebook (enable in your Profile > Sharing Settings > Facebook)

What’s New in Android Version 1.1.4:
– Improved search functionality
– Support for location data taken from Gallery images when geotag is selected
– Fix for HTC Sensation 4G freezing using tilt shift
– Improved support and bugfixes for devices using the Instagram advanced camera
– Addresses tilt shift issues on lower resolution images
