Instagram Adds Two New Filters, Suggested Users and More Languages

It looks like the Instagram developers won’t stop adding features to their amazingly popular “app service” anytime soon. It was only 10 days ago that they added new sharing features and Posterous integration; today, two new filters and more languages have found their way to the app, together with a new “suggested users” option that lets you easily follow popular Instagrammers.

The new filters are cool, but I don’t really spot much difference from the existing ones. Maybe they just need to grow on me a little more. So, filters and international localizations aside, the suggested users section: it’s pretty. To access it after sign up, you’ll have to open your profile setting page, tap on Find Friends then Suggested Users. In this page you’ll see folk such as Robert Scoble and Kevin Rose that, according to Instagram, deserve a follow. What’s cool is that their photos are animated and rotate – neat effect. As you follow these people, new ones will be recommended to you.

Other changes in this version include bug fixes, improved performances and better handling of long comment threads. In case you don’t know (how could you?) Instagram is free and available here.
