Instagram for iOS updates with new camera, new filter, and Foursquare integration

Instagram has had a tough past few days with the whole Twitter debacle, but they're attempting to bounce back thanks to a new update for its iOS app. The update comes with an updated camera interface, as well as a brand-new filter that you can play around with. Plus, it also comes with Foursquare integration for those that love to check-in to places and share it with their friends.

The new version comes with a redesigned camera that integrates with the iOS camera roll, which makes it cleaner and faster to add photos that you've already shot to Instagram. There's also new optional grid guides that you can enable when shooting photos, as well as a permanent grid on the scaling and cropping screen.

Another major new addition is the integration of Foursquare data. For now on, location pages will have a Foursquare button that can open either the app or a mobile web version with details about the location. It's definitely a welcomed featured, especially considering Instagram's Photo Map made locations an important part of the experience.

Lastly, there's improved tilt-shift functionality and also a new filter called "Willow" that's making its way to Android as well. The update is rolling out now to the iTunes App Store, as well as the Google Play store for the Android version. We're currently not seeing the updates, so if you're experiencing the same, it looks like you'll have to be patient for a little bit.
