How frustrating is it when you go to post a great video to Instagram only to not have the whole picture fit since you need to crop it to a square? The Square for Video app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is able to take away all this frustration by allowing you to crop full-sized videos to Instagram. From now on your friends will be able to enjoy your videos the way they are meant to be seen and you can even add background music to your videos.

Post on Your Terms

The Square for Video app is really about allowing you to post videos on Instagram on your terms and without the cropping restrictions. The app makes it possible to post full-sized videos and add background music to your videos, giving your followers a great piece to enjoy. The way it works is that instead of cropping your video it will take its rectangle shape and transform it to square by the use of white borders. No part of the picture will be lost in the process. You can also trim the video by choosing your start and end points giving you even more creative freedom.

The best iPhone apps for Instagram

The app was updated earlier this year with stability enhancements, bug fixes, and the ability to post videos to Instagram right through the app. The app does have a pro version available with additional features and this is priced at $1.99. The app only scores 2.5 out of five stars from users, clearly sending a message to developers that it isn't quite there yet. Customers have run into plenty of issues trying to use the different features, there seem to be stability problems still, and glitches here and there.

A Collection of Basic Features

The Square for Video app gives you a collection of very basic features. There are 18 background colors that you can choose from, there is real-time previewing of your video, there is the ability to change the aspect-ratio, and you can post directly to Instagram from the app. As mentioned you can add background music to your video, there is no compromise made to the original quality of the video you're using, and you can choose not to use the original sound in the video. It’s all very simple and basic so it’s unfortunate it doesn’t work smoothly as there really are no added bells and whistles.

Final Thoughts

The Square for Video app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone is a great idea but is an example of poor follow-through. You are given just a basic handful of tools and these tools fail to work in a stable way.
