Apps Optimized for iPhone 5′s 4-Inch Display — Yep, Instagram Makes the List

Last night, popular photo sharing app Instagram was updated with support for the new 4-inch Retina display on iPhone 5. Less than a week after the iPhone 5 was released, developers are still moving quickly to update their apps to support the taller iPhone screen. Sometimes, the app is simply optimized to fit the 4-inch screen; in other cases, the developer opts to make an entirely new user interface with that take advantage of the extra space.

iFans has compiled an ever growing list of apps that have been optimized for the 4-inch display on iPhone 5. It’s also important to note that the new iPod touch, slated for release next month, also packs the exact same 4-inch Retina display that the iPhone 5 has. So, consider these apps compatible with that device as well. For starters, the entire series of native apps by Apple — from the App Store to Messages — has been updated for the 4-inch display. Then there are popular third-party apps such as Facebook, Twitter, Google Chrome and Temple Run and Instagram. The rest of the list is just ahead.
