Weekend Humor isn’t meant to be taken seriously. So don’t. We’re srs.

Today, Instagram just became a whole lot better. Got an iPad? Great! Instagram has officially launched for the platform, letting you share all those moments instantly from your big ass tablet.

Following the announcement of their video rollout to compete with Twitter’s Vine, Facebook (who owns Instagram) decided that they needed to step it up a notch even more after they saw just how popular video on Instagram became. Every day, people take images with their iPads and upload them to the web. It happens at concerts, during meals, and at baseball games. It was really only a matter of time until this happened.

The new iPad app lets you do nearly anything you can with the iPhone and Android apps. You can view images from your friends, heart them, comment, explore, search tags, and see how people have interacted with your creative uploads.

Building on Instagram’s dining filter (which instantly deletes all the food images you take) the company is introducing a brand new feature tailored for new photographers. According to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, “Instagram now has a Live Guide which gives you tips on pointers on how to take new photos–like stretching your arms out to help you zoom in on that far away landscape.”

But that’s not all–as it seems that the team behind Instagram has been the busy bunch. The iPad app has a new feature where during the editing interface, the app will remind you to punch yourself in the face. We pinged the Zuck for a quote about how long this feature was in development and how they think it will roll over with the community. Unfortunately, he declined to comment.

Instagram for the iPad is available for download now in the Apple App store and is free as it always has been.
