I'm curious to see how designers have addressed this problem on a touch-screen device given the size and technical constraints of mobile.

  • What exactly are you asking? There's no answerable question here. – Charles Boyung Apr 22 '11 at 13:13

Facebook has this. When you use an image for your profile you use the "pinch" gesture to crop.

I have seen others do a box that has one edge draggle (to expand the box larger) then you move the box (tap and drag the center) over the area.

I actually like the second option myself.
