Instagram Rolls Out Support For Higher Resolution 1080x1080 Photos

It's easy to hate on Instagram. It's not just that most of the photos have user-applied filters. The photo-centric social network has capped images at 640 by 640. Even if your phone can take a decent shot, it only gets scaled down when you share it with the world.

But now the site is rolling out support for sharper photos on both Android and iOS. Users will be able to upload and view images at a resolution of 1080x1080.

Amex Mobile Gets A Fresh Coat Of Paint To Put Spotlight On Rewards And Benefits, Possibly Hurt Your Eyes

Amex Mobile, the Android app for American Express cardholders, has received an update to v5.0 that includes a major redesign. Substantively speaking, this adds focus to benefits and rewards along with making statements viewable as an activity timeline.

While a new look is always welcome, for many it might be a bit of a letdown. Amex is marching to the beat of their own drum, with an interface that is both too big and too small at the same time, somewhat unintuitive, and at the least very out of place in comparison to the typical Android UI.
