Instagram For Android Not Working In Samsung Galaxy Y Young GT- S5360

Instagram Logo 2

I’ve just installed the newly released Instagram for Android App today on my Samsung Galaxy Y Young GT- S5360 that occupied 16.59MB of space in the limited internal memory. The popular photo application for iPhone  and other Apple products like iPad, iPod is now ported to the Android OS. This will give a new user base to Instagram. Sorry to spoil the excitement of Samsung Galaxy Y users, the Instagram application is currently not working properly.

The experience will progress from downloading the app properly from Google Play. You may find it unusual with its large file space for a photo app, installing would be going smoothly, signing up would be easy as 123, following other users/friends from other social networks like Facebook and twitter adds to the excitement of sharing the photos in a while after all of those steps… Ended with the disappointment  to start in adding effects/filters  and the uploading of the photos to the social networks with just a black or blank photo. At least border can be be seen around it, but it doesn’t compensate the failure, I guess.

This is just the the first release of Instagram for Android and I’m hoping there will be a fix to it on the next update. Though I’m aware that Instagram use OpenGL 2.2 and Galaxy Y has OpenGL 1.1. As for me and everyone else, waiting will be the best thing to do.
