The hipster's photo-sharing app of choice Instagram has just got better thanks to hefty revamp that will see Apple iPhone touters given the ability to upload high resolution images for the first time

Instagram has launched the second incarnation of its massively popular iPhone photo-sharing app.with Instagram 2.0, which is now available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad (although it isn't optimised for the tablet), adding the opportunity to upload high resolution photographs.
 
Previously, the Polaroid-like iPhone app, spat out photos of 612 x 612p, but thanks to the new build, Instagram now captures pictures at over three times that size at 1936 x 1936p (1536 x 1536 on the iPhone 3GS).
 
Also on the menu is a completely rebuilt engine, which speeds up the process adding filters to your photos and a new user-interface that makes editing and sharing snaps even simpler.
 
Naturally, there's also a few new filters to give your snaps that super-retro-oldy-worldy-vintage (or Hipster) feel. The four newbies are Amaro, Rise, Hudson and Valencia.
 
There's still no sign of an Android Instagram app. Perhaps the makers like the cool factor the iPhone exclusivity affords them, or they feel that the vast majority of Android cameras aren't fit to lace the iPhone's boots? Either way, still no love for Google’s mobile OS.
