Bernie Goldbach's Instagram profile at Christmas 2012.
I THINK NEW FILTERS added to Instagram can cause memory problems that result in the Instagram iOS app crashing.
I run an old version of Instagram on an 8GB iTouch and encounter no problems even though the device has less than 20 MB of memory free. But when I run the updated app on a 32 GB iTouch with 50 MB free, the app crashes. This happens with 2MB images and with 50 kb images.
I have rebooted my iTouch and also deleted and reinstalled Instagram to no effect. Thankfully the Android version of Instagram works fine. I will use it for occasional uploads during the Christmas holidays, with most of my content automatically headed to Google Plus and Dropbox.

Bernie Goldbach wishes Instagram had fewer filters. That way, things in visual journals would be more authentic.
