Update: Instagram Adds Account Switching

I blogged about this last week in my post about managing brands on Instagram, and this week, Instagram has rolled out account switching in its app. This is great, thank you, Instagram.

The process is very simple. In the app settings, you will now see a menu choice to add an account. After you add the username and password of your account, you can easily switch between them.

I really like the way Instagram has incorporated account switching into the UI of the app. Instead of multiple clicks, they’ve added an icon to the bottom right of the lower navigation bar. Pressing it brings up a dialog box with the accounts you’ve added, and switching is as easy as tapping and you’re done. Instagram reloads the correct profile page and gives you a dialog to let you know you’ve switched. Very nicely done.
