Instagram better with Tegra 3, HTC One X update delight

The most popular image editing software for mobile devices recently arrived on Android, sending its users into delirium. Not everyone was happy though, notably new HTC One X users in Europe after they discovered that Instagram was bizarrely incompatible at launch.

We’re pleased to say that it looks like the developers of the popular app are definitely on the ball though. They may have taken their time in bringing the app to the Google Play store after a long period of exclusivity on iOS devices, but in the space of a week, the Android version has already seen two updates, and a third update now will add support for the HTC One X.

The update now officially adds support for Tegra 3 devices, with the HTC One X obviously the pick of the bunch. There are also some new bug fixes as well, and a performance improvement for those of you who are enjoying Instagram on tablet devices such as the Transformer Prime.

What’s interesting though is that Instagram has mentioned on the official Google Play listing, that app will feature better support for Tegra 3 devices. That means that the developers are essentially recommending devices such as the One X, the LG Optimus 4X, the ZTE Era and the Transformer Prime if you want to experience Instagram with optimal performance.

So if you are lucky enough to own a HTC One X in Europe now, let us know if you spot any differences in quality compared to using the app with a dual-core Android device. What will the future bring to Instagram now that Mark Zuckerburg’s Facebook monopoly has taken over? Is this a good move in your opinion or not?
