The developers do ask for a small favor in return for this free app, that is to hashtag your Instagram video with “#squareadyvideo.”

To make it convenient for you, they have added a cool new feature which automatically copies the hashtag to your clipboard when you launch Camera Mode within Instagram to shoot your videos.

All you need to do is paste and the hashtag will appear. I like this app and this is a small gesture to increase its popularity amongst other users.
