    Looks to be more in line with their web/desktop aesthetic

      Hi, This is good. But don't you think if the 'more option button' would be inline to other three buttons and in place of it we could have time stamp then it could have been better. And also, In this design there is a waste space to the left of place name which is unnecessary. So I think web version design is good and apps should be inline with it not other way around.

      Let me know if you agree with this.

        @Ravi, I think Instagram is intentionally removing the timestamp entirely, as they want the feed to become more flexible (i.e.- not necessarily chronological). I'm also guessing that they like the three action buttons being solitary as those are the primary actions they want you to take. I'd probably keep the 'more actions' button where it is, and cut everything except for "Report" and "Turn On Post Notifications", making that button respective to the poster's account.

        @Julien, Agreed.
