So I am definitely not the only person that woke up this morning thinking “what on earth is that?”. The internet is full of people losing their minds about the new logo.
This is definitely my favourite tweet about it.

I’m not against change but I don’t understand why it needed to be done, the original logo was simple, looked like a camera, people knew what the app was for straight away. When I looked at my phone this morning and saw the new logo, I thought I’d accidentally installed a kids app or a funky filter app or something that I wouldn’t use on my phone. It also doesn’t look right with all my social media icons so I may have to move it to it’s own folder but hey that’s just me.
The actual in-app changes are much better, it’s simple and makes the photos pop. The logo now just really doesn’t match. But I guess we’ve just got to get over it because I highly doubt they’ll be changing it back.
