Miss the old Instagram icon? Here’s how to get it back

I just learnt this from RedmondPie: you can keep the same old, and let’s face it a better Instagram icon on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

How? Head to this Github website. Tap the “Add to Homescreen” icon in iOS’ sharing menu, and you’ll notice the same Instagram camera icon you’re used to is back in your Home.

Open the web app and give it permission to trigger Instagram’s mobile solution. Now whenever you tap the icon, the web app will instantly open Instagram’s redesigned app. Shame, though, as there is no trick to get back to Instagram’s dark theme.

What to you think of this simple trick? Please, let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
