  • [How To] Get the Old Instagram App Icon Back on Your Home Screen
    Instagram rolled out some distinct changes to its app, and an even more abrupt change to its app icon a few days ago.

    The new app icon is much more colorful than the previous version, and doesn’t really look anything like the old option. Of course, as is the case with just about any change that gets any kind of publicity, not everyone has been happy with the new icon. For the folks out there who can’t stand it, and don’t mind tricking the system a little bit, there’s a way to get the old icon back.

    A developer by the name of Juan Ramirez has put together a relatively quick trick to get the old icon back. You’ll need to visit this website from your iPhone, and then find the “Tap Here” link that’s near the bottom of the page. Once you’re on the new page, select the “Share” icon on the bottom of Safari and save the website to your home screen.

    As you’ve probably already guessed, this will make it so there’s a dedicated website saved as a home screen icon, which, when tapped, will open up the Instagram website. When you open that site from your iPhone it will automatically launch the Instagram app, so you jump right into it.

    Once you’ve saved the site to your home screen, just go ahead and hide the new Instagram icon in a folder, and then you won’t have to look at it again directly any longer. If you get notifications from Instagram, you’ll still see the icon in that case, but you won’t have to look at it every time you want to launch the app, at least.

    This means you’ll probably have to wait a bit longer to get Instagram open after tapping on the old icon, but considering how many people out there seem to downright hate the new app’s icon, it might be worth giving a shot.

    What do you think of the new app’s icon?

      Or just don't update. I don't mind it. I'm not used to it yet, though. I swipe passed it twice until I realize it's Instagram [emoji53]

      The new logo looks more like a condom box.
