What’s This?

For those that manage more than five Instagram account, the choices are limited. That is as many as Instagram will allow you to toggle from your smartphone. You have to either work on multiple devices (5 on a smartphone, 5 on a tablet and so on) which can be super expensive and cumbersome. In this case, you’ll be creating secondary user profiles on your other smartphones, installing another copy of Instagram, and have another account signed in, or log in, upload a photo, and switch to the other smartphone when you need to publish to your other accounts. It gets tired – fast.

NOTE: Due to the Instagram API changes of April 2018 which affected all third party apps, our Instagram implementation is currently limited to scheduling posts, searching hashtags, and scheduling reposts. We are keeping a close eye for an update from Instagram.
