I know, I know, the title might be a little confusing. But that is exactly what Apple‘s new application for iOS is — a simple video and photo capture + editor designed to capture “social videos” without actually having its own social network to share it on.

WhatsApp has announced that there will be a change to its existing status feature. What kind of a change? Well, something along the lines of being able to post pictures or videos that vanish after 24 hours.

U Mobile has always been shaking things up in the telco industry with its generous data offering. First, they had introduced Video-Onz which gave unlimited free video streaming and this was followed by Music-Onz which does the same thing for music. Then, they had Game-Onz data add-ons designed for unlimited gaming through WiFi tethering.
Now they are introducing App Onz which offers unlimited free data for social. This lets you enjoy Facebook (including Messenger), Twitter and Instagram without utilising your normal data quota.
According to instagram, most users will miss an average of 70% of their feeds. As users tend to follow more instagram accounts by the day, it can get really cluttered. As a result, it is harder to keep up with posts that are more relevant to you.
To tackle this better, Instagram in their official blog had announced that a new feed optimisation is on the way and you can see this in the coming months.
Narcissistic behaviour has taken a hold of us humans since Twitter and Instagram came into the picture. There’s no point in arguing which of the two has a better argument to be secure, one keeps our thoughts in 140 characters while the other depicts the visuals in our lives.
Twitter added two-factor authentication since 2013 and Instagram has just decided to do the same. Yeah, it might be a little annoying to get into your account if you’re signing in from a new device but, at least, no random psychopath is going to have access to your precious Instagram account.
No longer will photographers be constrained to that square shape that frustrates even the most casual photographer when having to upload a photo on Instagram. Worse still, they never decided to tackle this issue for five years, until now; thanks to an update you’ll be the boss and decide how you want your photos to be oriented.
Instagram is finally getting with the times and is in the process of allowing users to display higher res images on the popular platform.
Initially, images uploaded to Instagram were only being displayed at 640 x 640 resolution, which is markedly small by today’s standards. But starting last week it seems that images being uploaded are being saved in 1080p resolution, probably in the process of getting the platform ready for the switch.
In terms of looks, Layout is basically the same on Android and iOS with the same basic features that allow the creation of Instagram ready photo collages with up to nine photos. Once you pick the layout you want, you can resize each photo, swap them around and rotate or flip individual images. You can also emulate photo booth style photos straight from your phone’s camera.
The resulting images will adhere to Instagram’s square form factor for photos and can be immediately uploaded via Layout to your Instagram account.
The app is available for smartphones running Android 4.1 and up and can be downloaded for free on Google Play.
Ever gotten in a situation where you noticed a typo in your Instagram caption and you couldn’t do anything about it? With the latest update for Instagram, it is now possible to rectify as they have added an “edit” feature under the image’s menu button.
The caption change is immediate and there’s no log history like Facebook’s edit feature. So now you can save yourself from embarrassment when you accidentally post macaron as macaroon.
Another new addition is in its Explore Tab. Apart from browsing through interesting photos and videos, the new People sub-tab recommends top instagramers that they think you should follow. There’s even a preview of their latest instagram post for your viewing pleasure.
Instagram is taking social video creation to the next level with the introduction of its hyperlapse feature. It lets you create high quality time lapse video that’s stabilised, as if it was taken with a secured mount. So anyone can create awesome videos without the need of specialised equipment.
To make things easy, the Hyperlapse app does not require any account sign in and you can start recording right away. Just record several video snippets by tapping to start and tap again to stop. Once you’re done, just select the playback speed ranging from 1x to 12x.
It is available now for iOS devices and you can download Hyperlapse from Instagram over here. To give you a better idea on how it looks like, check out the official sample video after the break.
