Instagram Update Adds Better Tablet Support and App2SD

"The latest one to hit today (1.0.3) promises expanded support for tablets and WiFi handsets, app installation on the SD card for storage-limited users and fixing an audio mute bug during capture."

I'm not sure I can think of an App, maybe Angry Birds, that had as much hype as Instagram. Those who use Instagram seem to love it and that number grew a lot last week when it was finally released for Android. With the latest version including better tablet support and support for App2SD I'm sure the number of users will grow even more.

It's great to see a developer not just putting their product out there but responding so quickly to what people want and quickly releasing updates that address the issues.

Print Almost Anything with the Cloud Print Beta App

"Android/Chrome (Windows): Google's Cloud Print setup is a little rough around the edges right now, but the possibilities are looking nice. An Android app, for example, uses Dropbox and Cloud Print to fling almost anything you see or open on your Android over to your (Windows-connected) printer."

I already had Google Cloud Print setup with my home PC, Chrome, and a HP Photosmart 6100C. I installed this "Cloud Print Beta" app and, after approving the Cloud Print permission and refreshing the list, it came up with my printer. It no longer requires that you use Dropbox, as my source mentions, but that's still an option. It looks like they've also increased what you can print and there is a list of things that are apparently coming soon including Mail, Facebook, and Picasa. You can use "sharing" from any app that supports that to try printing but your results may vary. If you have any need to print from Android you should definitely check this out! Let us know what you try printing and what the results are.

Do You Share Your Location?

"Location-based services are going to have a hard time overcoming privacy fears and proving their worth."

The survey about privacy and sharing with location-based services was done by Microsoft, and it does reveal some interesting tidbits. Over 80% of those polled have never used a location-based service to tell others where they are, or to find the location of their friends, family etc. And of the roughly 20% that had used it, the most popular service was Google Latitude or Places at 52%, followed close behind by Facebook Places at 50%. Foursquare was only used by 15% of those users in the United States, and less in the other countries polled (Japan, Canada, UK and Germany). I am not too surprised that the "have-used" crowd was smaller than the "have-not" used crowd, but I didn't think the disparity would be that large between them. And for those that use those services, I would have thought that Foursquare, for all it's hype, would have had a greater percentage of users. I wonder just how many that said they didn't actually did but didn't know it. I guess the bigger point they are trying to make here is that people are just not comfortable putting that information out there yet. Personally I don't have too big a problem using Facebook Places every now and then, since I've vetted those that are my friends there, but there aren't too many on a regular basis that I do use other than that. How about you, any qualms about using these services and letting the 'Net know where you are?
