    Any luck installing Instagram for Android on an Optimus V?

    I've been trying all afternoon. It keeps failing on install with the message "Package file is invalid".
    I've tried both on 3G and Wifi. Same results both ways.

    Try installing it from the Play Store website to send it to your device. It may not be compatible. It's not compatible with my Intercept.

    Yeah. I tried the Play store method first. Says it's compatible(but says it's NOT compatible with my Asus Tablet. Apparently, based on what they say on their website, they aren't supporting Tablets yet).

    I emailed their Support with the info. I'll see what they have to say.

    I had to do it this way with my Triumph for it to work for me. I first seen it on VM lives fb page and clicked the link from my phone and it wouldn't work that way.

    When did they rename PicSay and make it so big?

    I've been checking the past few days, and it wouldn't even show up on Google Play on my Triumph, but I just checked now, and it's up. Gonna try installing it now.

    EDIT: Yup works fine

    EDIT AGAIN: Nope. Any time I try to upload a pic from my phone, it says "photo is too small", but the pics were taken using the 5mp setting...so I don't know.. Anyone else have this issue?

    I uploaded a picture last night and it worked for me. It was over wifi though.

    I was able to download it with no problem. I haven't had any problems yet, but I haven't really used it that much. And it's taking up 16.88MB on my phone

    I've only uploaded a couple pics but that did happen to me on one of them and I think it was because I was cropping it too small. Because it went through when I didn't crop it as much.

    My guess would be that Instagram requires an ARMv7 CPU. I haven't been able to find any sources one way or the other, but it would make sense since neither the OV nor Intercept support it.

    Finally got it to install by un-installing a bunch of apps to free up some storage memory. No joy. Now get Force Close errors when I open it.

    I give up.

    There are better photo editing apps. I just won't be in with the "Hipsters".

    BFD.

    I repeat, PicSay Pro and Sketchbook Mobile. I was hipster before it was cool, apparently.

    Well, I un-gave up. The newest update(1.0.3) supports Tablets. It also installs and runs on my Optimus V. I will play with it for a while and see what all the hoopla is about.

    I had no idea that the Android version had finally been released. Thanks for the heads up!

    I just got it from the Play app on my Optimus V. Downloaded fine, installed it, then moved it to the SD with link2SD. Created an account, snapped a pic, filtered, and uploaded it, all with no problems.
