iOS app gets automatic photo straightening

Facebook-owned Instagram has issued an important update to its iOS and Android apps, v4.1. Both apps can now upload videos from a phone's library, instead of forcing users to record new clips. Once imported, library clips can be trimmed down to the right section, with adjustable square cropping so the right part of the image appears.

The Android app now supports video for users of Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. The feature was already working on Jelly Bean, but not all phones have been updated to the latest version of Android.

An iOS-only addition is automatic image straightening. When a photo is shot with the in-app camera, people can tap a new Straighten icon to automatically adjust the horizon. Alternately the horizon can be adjusted manually, using a slider.
