Instagram announcing a major update:

>See the world through Instagram’s stunning effects before you even snap a photo. Simply select a filter, hold the camera up to the scene and see the world through Instagram’s visual effects. We’ve re-written your favorite Instagram filters to be over 200x faster so even after having taken a photo, switching between them takes no time at all.

Also much higher resolution images. Instagram remains one of my favorite new social networks. (New icon sucks though.)
