Don't like Instagram cropping your photos? Try #Square for Android
Since you're reading this post, chances are you're not quite happy with Instagram cropping your photos. And we know how you feel since 1:1 isn't always the best aspect ratio to present a sunset or a selfie in. Thankfully, this can be avoided (kind of) with the help of an Android app called #Square.

#Square is actually a pretty simple app, but it does a wonderful job at what it is supposed to do. All it does is to add a border around the image in order to make it square-shaped. The user is free to pic the border's color, and the frame's thickness can be increased, if needed. 

You can download #Square for free from the Google Play store. Note that the app is quite new so there might still be some bugs here and there, depending on what Android device you're using.

'squareIT' is also another app that i have been using, because i hate the 1:1 ratio instagram uses.

JEEZ! I've been begging for an app like this for a long time! Ever since IG hit Android I've had to manually tweak my images in Photoshop to maintain aspect ratio instead of cropping. This will be so convenient.

there's been other Instagram croppers for Android but this one looks particularly nice. o:

I personally use Photo Grid - Collage Maker by RoidApp to crop pictures. It allows you to put multiple pictures in a collage, but you can select one picture and crop it to a square just as shown above. Then you can pic the background color. Very handy app in my opinion.. had it installed since day 1
