The Ubuntu One Files Android application has been updated with a handful of new options.

Seamless sharing of uploaded files through GMail, Twitter, Facebook and other popular social apps has been added, as has the ability to cancel file uploading and downloading.

But the headline ‘feature’ of this release is support for ‘Auto-uploading’ photos taken with Instagram – the insanely popular photo sharing social network.

  • New settings to help save power/data costs
  • Specify auto-uploading behaviour
  • Ability to upload entire ‘galleries’
