    Instagram has been around for a while now, while there are plenty of features that have been added and removed and chiseled over the years, there are still things that bother the average user of the app. From not being able to see a full profile picture to not having the option of creating your own custom stickers, there are many things that leave users wanting.

    5 Instagram apps you should have


    Luckily, there are developers striving in corners around the world striving to answer your needs. Fine tune your Instagram game by trying out some of these apps. Keep in mind that some of these apps could be rendered obsolete for a few days because of Instagram’s tendency to change their API. A few days is usually enough time for developers to catch up and resolve issues.


    What usually happens when you tap on a profile picture on Instagram is you are taken to the user's stories. A restriction that Instagram has placed is that you can see a full-sized image of the profile picture.

    If you want to see a full-size picture, you will need to head on over to the app called GramBig. Type the username in and you will be able to obtain a large image of the tiny thumbnail. This works for both private and public profiles.
