How To: “Flatten” the Instagram App on Your Nexus 7 Tablet for an iOS 7 Look & Feel

“Flatten” the Instagram App on Your Nexus 7 Tablet for an iOS 7 Look & Feel

Android devices are awesome, let me just state that now, but when iOS 7 came out, the new flat theme caught my eye. Yes, we can easily apply new themes on our Nexus 7 tablets to make it look more like iOS 7, but they won't actually change the individual look and feel of apps like Instagram.

But just because themes won't do the job doesn't mean dope ass developers can't. Thanks to dev krishneelg3, we can now effortlessly apply the awesome iOS 7 flat theme to our Instagram app. All we need is a device running Android 4.4 (KitKat).

To avoid any bugs or glitches, first uninstall your Instagram app. I'm sure you know how to do that. Next, just download and install the Flat Instagram APK onto your device.

Next, open it up and sign in like you initially would and you're done. Quick and easy.

Check out how the minimized look changes our Home page to expand beyond the status bar.

The Camera interface may have the biggest change. The dark theme has been replaced with the flat blue and minor changes have also been made to the icons.

On the Explore screen, dividers separating the "Refresh" and "Search"
icons have been removed, offering a cleaner look.

Navigate to the News section and notice the subtle change in the icons and dividers.

The main noticeable change throughout the app is the status bar, which definitely helps immerse us into the app.

Although the changes may seem subtle, they make a substantial difference to the look and feel of the app.
