Love UI, filters & sharing feature, but downsamples pictures

Positive Comment by Thelle
about Instagram and Snapseed Jan 2013

I love the UI, filters & sharing feature.. Instagram is also great as a visual social network, but it downsamples the pictures. Also instagram also only allows for square photos - but I kind of like that constraint :)

For for more advanced editing on your phone I will suggest having a look at Small Snapseed iconSnapseed
