Instagram for Android has been updated to allow you to install the app on an SD card, one of the biggest initial complaints from users. This version, 1.0.3, also brings support for tablets and Android devices that are WiFi only.

Unfortunately, from initial feedback, this update does not appear to add support for the HTC One X’s camera.

What’s in this version:

  1. Open up support to Tablets and WiFi handsets
  2. Allow app installation on SD card
  3. Fix audio mute bug during capture
  4. Several small bug fixes and improvements

On Tuesday, Instagram released its photo sharing client on Android. It racked up a million downloads in a day and we found it to compare well to its iOS counterpart. Instagram also wrote its own push notification server for the Android app, and it is offering it up as open-source.
