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.

The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
