Filters, cropping and direct messaging are among the latest improvement arriving in an update to Instagraph, the unofficial third-party Instagram app for Ubuntu Touch.

Instagraph 0.0.3 adds much-missed image manipulation tools. You can now crop photos, make various edits to them (e.g., adjust brightness, enhance saturation, focus blur, etc) and apply Instagram-esque photo filters with a single tap.

This update also lets you reply to direct messages (though this is still buggy), open external URLs in the default browser, and perform location search.

Orientation issues with the built-in camera app have been resolved, and you can now re-edit captions on images after uploading them, which is handy if you forgot a #few important #hashtags #andthings.

Other changes let you view tagged photos, add a location to uploaded media, and check out the following and followers list of other users.
