With its latest update, Instagram for iOS makes it possible to shoot photos (and video) in landscape orientation. Because of the square format, viewers won’t be able to notice the difference, but it does make your iPhone or iPod touch handle a little bit more like a traditional camera. (Your iPad will handle like an iPad, but sideways.) Unfortunately, there’s just one problem with the implementation — you can’t use the volume button as a shutter release, which defeats the purpose somewhat. Additionally, the update adds stabilization to video shot with the front-facing camera. If you've been waiting to snap sideways, version 4.0.2 is available to download now from the iTunes App Store.
