A new look, a new style!
That’s what’s Instagram is all about anyway.. New things.

On May 11, 2016 came the big change that no one really expected.
“How could such a huge App make such a huge change ahead?”

That’s the first thing that came around our friends’ minds who contacted us to share their astonishment regarding the big news.
Inspired by the previous app icon, the new one represents a simpler camera and the rainbow lives on in gradient form.

We at Better’fly Lebanon asked some of our designers about their opinion.
Here’s what they said:

It’s interesting how they redesigned it in a modern fun way but they definitely lost their identity.
It used to be distinctive and vintage.

My first impression was like “Oh.. bye bye little tiny camera ” it seems that they wanted to modernize it and follow colors trends.  We’ll get used to it!

Instagram is much better, it’s breathing now that the icons are smaller, more trending & easier to the eyes!

Well, most of us around here like it! Why not?
Improvements are a must and old things can get boring..
Yes we are used to the old icon. Sure we loved it, but it’s time for a Make-Over.

Change is good!
