Instagram for Android is a Joke

Blogging about blogging: As some you are aware of, my fruity device couldn’t handle the Norwegian climate and became rotten, which meant I had to spend some of my hard-earned cash on a new phone. Obviously I didn’t want to get another fruit phone, so I went for a weather resistant Android phone.

One thing I quickly noticed with my new Android phone is that when I share photos to Instagram via Flickr, the quality is total shit.

First I upload my photos to my Flickr account then, on the Flickr app on the phone, there’s an option to share the image on Instagram. This app works for both Iphone and Android. On the IG app for Android you have the option to enable or disable High Quality uploads, but even the so-called High Quality is, at best, a pile of feces. Instacrap.

I did a web search with duckduckgo (because they don’t track your searches like Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc, etc, do) and quickly learned that this issue isn’t a new one: the post I read was more than two years old and they still haven’t fixed it!
Why?!?

Creepy Taj Mahal

A fun photo challenge from WordPress this week with the theme “Creepy“.

P.S. I’ve opened an instaspam account. Most of the likes I’ve gotten so far has been from spammers (except from some from real life friends & some other bloggers), so instaspam seems like a more appropriate name than instagram. Anyway, if you also have an instaspam account, you can add me: instagram.com/cardinalguzman
My profile is open and public now, but if I continue to experience spam, I’ll set it to private.

P.P.S. I’ll probably be posting more stuff for the challenge this week.
