One of the most distinguished features of the iPhone 6s is 3D Touch, a feature which allows Peek & Pop to be a reality. Basically, a multi-layered screen with pressure-sensitive sensors know when the user is touching or pressing on the screen. This opens doors to many possible projects. By applying a little pressure on the screen, you get a preview of whatever you are reading, and pressing a little harder fully opens it.
3D Touch is exclusive to the iPhone 6s since it is hardware-related. But this hasn’t stopped app developers from implementing something similar on Android. More specifically, developers behind the Android version of Instagram have implemented something similar to 3D Touch.
Instagram app for Android has made viewing images easier than ever. If you are checking someone’s profile and get tired of going back and forth to view the images, now all you have to do is to press and hold on one of the images and it will become larger.
Unlike 3D Touch which senses pressure, this is a simple trick which triggers after a long press. When you long-press on one of the images, you can see the author as well as a larger version of the image. Release your finger from the screen and it will disappear. You no longer have to fully open an image and then go back to view another one.
To get this feature on your Android phone, head over to the Play Store and download the latest version of Instagram. If you still don’t have it, then download the APK file of Instagram v.13.1. Install the APK directly as it will overwrite the current one. Also, do not worry. The app has been verified and signed by Google.
