Instagram makes photos and videos pop in iOS 7 makeover | Internet & Media – CNET News.


Gotta say I love the new 15 sec video with stunning filters. As I’m mostly taking pics and vids of my kids which I don’t want to share with the world, I still use instragram but have my settings to private and don’t accept friends. I have enough IRL.
