Has anyone else found that since updating Instagram to v6.0 or 6.0.1, it is absolutely killing their battery life? After updating to Android 4.4.3 on Monday evening, my battery life was better than it has ever been on Tuesday. However, after updating Instagram this morning, my battery was at 60% by 10am (took it off the charger at 7:30am) and Instagram was responsible for 61% of the battery usage thus far.

I'm still on 4.4.2 but I had that problem a few versions of Instagram ago. I'd use it before bed, next day at work after only an hour of being off the charger the battery was down to like 60%. I had to force close it every time. Seems fine now.

I've had that happen to me on a previous version as well. Luckily it's not consistent. I greenify instagram just because I don't really care much for notifications, but if you do need them I would just observe the app for a bit and make sure it's not doing it. When it happened to me after force stopping it the drain went away.
