This app was developed by Facebook and is available currently in 25 languages. One key feature of Instagram is that it limits all photos to a square shape. This is quite similar to Polaroid images and Kodak Instamatic. This is different from the 4:3 aspect ratio found in mobile phone cameras. Instagram videos can be uploaded of duration not more than 15 seconds. One more distinctive feature is users can apply digital filters to their photos/images.
