Avoid the Instagram Crop with #Square

How many times have you uploaded a picture on that overly filtered and hipster-friendly photo sharing service Instagram, only to be disappointed to discover that your image has been cropped to a square? While you may be accustomed to this by now, that doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything about it.

This is where XDA Forum Member sergeyotro‘s new app #Square comes in. Rather than allowing Instagram to crop your picture without your control, #Square lets you control how this is done so that you don’t lose any of your image if you don’t want to.

Essentially, #Square allows you to easily add a border to your pictures of any aspect ratio, allowing the final output image size to be a square, but without any of your image cropped off. In addition to simply padding your images, the app gives you quite a bit of control over the process by allowing you to select both the color of the border, as well as output quality and format.

Want to give this a shot? Put on your skinny jeans and emo glasses, and head over to the application thread to get started.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
