Although it started off as an application to apply filters and edit photos that could later be shared online, has become one of the most powerful social networks at present thanks to its purchase on behalf of Facebook Inc. which has given it the final boost it needed. But because not all users are identical, especially because not everyone can afford the latest Samsung Galaxy, they've decided to release a lite version of the app. And that's why we can now download the APK of Instagram Lite.
Share photos and videos online with the rest of Instagrammers
So if you're a user of this social network where you share your daily adventures such as having a coffee at Starbucks or your feet with the sea in the background (please, trim down those nails) that are a must this summer together with some kind of stupid comment, this is the app you definitely need. Especially if your phone is getting old or you simply don't need all the functions of the parent application to follow all your favorite celebrities of the likes of Justin Bieber or Kim Kardashian.
Mark Zuckerberg wants progress for everyone.
These are the main features of IG Lite, which you can make the most of once you log into this new app:
- Post pics on your profile and edit them with filters.
- Share several pics on your Instagram story that will be visible for 24 hours.
- Watch the stories of other users that you follow.
- Discover new users as well as pics and videos from the Explore tab.
Even if your phone stinks, you can still be cool on social networks.
However, if you've already tried out Facebook and Facebook Lite, you must have noticed that there are quite a few differences between the functions you can use on one and another. The same goes for Instagram and Instagram Lite, as you won't be able to send DMs from this new app and neither access its latest major hit, IGTV or Instagram TV, in the form of an online video streaming service.
Anyhow, it comes along with a clean interface that's less cluttered than usual but from where you can easily access its most basic functions and features. In other words, even if your phone is absolute rubbish, you can still be a decent Instagrammer.
Well, there's one more thing to say... if it was a real Lite app, any old Android could use it. However, it requires Android 5.0, therefore, if you're still running 4.3 or 4.4, two of the most used versions, forget about uploading your cool pics with this app.
What's new in the latest version
- The developers of the app haven't disclosed the changes made to the latest version.
