Instagram has been gradually furnished with tons of new features over the years — from face filters to video chat to the recent nametag tool to name just a few. But the team of developers who tirelessly tweak the app in an effort to enhance the user experience has gone back to basics by testing a new way to scroll through the feed.
As per TechCrunch, the media-sharing app could soon let you work your way through posts by simply tapping on each one. Currently, you advance through your feed by swiping up, but swiping to scroll can sometimes be a somewhat messy affair, with a little bit of effort required to line up each post on the screen. On top of that, single-handed smartphone users may even experience a spot of thumb ache from the continuous swiping, and the last thing Instagram wants is to be accused of causing some of its most devoted ‘grammers repetitive strain injury.
