Whether you are a lover or hater of the ultra popular app Instagram, the latest word on the street is that the Android version has just been updated with a brand new feature. Tilt-shift is finally available for usage on Android and it’s a feature that iOS users have been using for some time.

If you are an avid user of Instagram ever since it launched on Android, you can update to the new version by heading to the Google Play link here. The new blur effects should keep you very busy when sharing your photos online, but if there was ever a cry for some more improvements, you would probably agree that the developers of the app need to solve the problem of frequent cashes.

After applying the update, some users have complained of crashes when using the new blur effects in the 1.1.0 update. Obviously it’s not happening to everyone, but complaints on Twitter and on the User Reviews section of the Google Play page do suggest that there’s more than a minority experiencing issues.

For those of you that are having no problems with Instagram on Android and are enjoying the new features, what would you like to see come next? Tilt-shift is a feature that is already available on iOS, but would you perhaps like to see some exclusive features on Android, or at least features which both platforms can enjoy at the same time?

If you are just getting started with Instagram, you’ll probably find this little tilt-shift tutorial handy over at the official Instagram blog. Is Instagram crashing more frequently for you now or not?
