Comments and Ratings for App for Instagram - Instant at your desktop!

Function: Instgram Viewer, full stop. (1.1)
5/9/2017 8:07:12 PM 5/5 By musicgurlkauai
This is great because sometimes I just wanna pull up instagram and look at my feed without all that other nonsense beeping and blinking and dinging at me. I don’t have an iPhone, so this is basically the best thing since the app. HOWEVER, I cannot upload photos from this app and the paywall WILL NOT unlock that feature. For a desktop uploading alternative, try Gramblr. It’s free :)

Limited Function even with Premium (1.1)
4/26/2017 1:00:16 PM 1/5 By MurseMiller
The app itself is no more than a method to browse Instagram on your desktop rather than a mobile device. Purchase of “Premium” version allows for a full screen version and nothing more. As of 4/26/17 the app is not functioning. Persistent errors prevent it from showing any content. Rather, a message stating “Oops, an error occurred” is all that is visible. This is a waste of money. With little features and limited function, you are better off using the original app.

$5 and you are not able to upload photos - misleading - buyer beware

Should have researched….. (1.1)

Wishing that I had read and researched a bit before I spent my 5 dollars…

Pro upgrade is a ripoff (1.1)
3/13/2017 11:27:41 AM 1/5 By TheCityChic
Being able to expand the app on your desktop is not worth $5 to me. I should have read the reviews, my mistake. What a waste of money.

Pro!!?? Misleading…. (1.1)

DONT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON UPGRADE ITS CRAP (1.1)
2/7/2017 3:39:53 PM 1/5 By Artur Kovalchuk
Waste of $5. Want a refund for that since the upgrade doesnt let me upload or doing anyting useful. I can like a picture on my phone. Dont waste your time getting this crap.

Don’t buy the Pro version. You will feel as dumb as I do (1.1)
1/31/2017 7:41:02 AM 2/5 By Pjedlickac
Although it works fine, it makes no sense to buy the Pro version. I can’t believe I paid for it. I was assuming that the Pro version would do a lot more than the basic one, like allowing to upload pictures and/or videos. Wrong. All it does is allow yourself to extend the size of the window of the App for a better look at the photos. Don’t ever think to pay for this. You will feel as dumb for paying for this non-sense upgrade, as I do right now.

cannot upload pics to instagram (1.1)
1/7/2017 6:38:14 PM 2/5 By Robin56!
downloaded this app with the intention of uploading pictures to my instagram account. This is not possible with this application and i am deleting it!

More information please (1.1)
1/6/2017 7:26:19 PM 3/5 By TheSouthernZach
The app is a well designed app. It has no bugs or any problems. The only thing is that it it has the same capability as the desktop Instagram site. Don’t pay $5 for what you can have already. Just have another tab opened in your Safari browser. In conclusion. please have more information about the capability of this app versus the desktop Instagram website.

value for money (1.1)

Quite good. (1.1)
12/5/2016 9:21:00 AM 4/5 By djfivossak
It is useful and you don’t have to open a new tab on your browser but I was expecting an uploading feature!

100% Not recommended (1.1)
12/4/2016 1:41:00 AM 1/5 By Davec11b
Upload profile picture is non functional, search option is non functional, some text is overset past the windows borders. I suppose you have to PAY for the “Pro Version” to get these basic features? Just go to the instagram website on a browser tab, 100% better than this. I only take my time to review when applications are either really good, or really bad and this is the latter. Deleted.

Please reimburse my account. You cannot upload photos (1.1)
11/26/2016 1:37:00 PM 1/5 By DrDon22
Please reimburse my account for this purchase. You cannot upload from a desktop computer on this app.

Pro (1.1)
11/20/2016 3:41:00 PM 1/5 By Monkystrk
I wish i understood more of what i bought Pro for. Its a waste of money. I want it back if anything. You need to make it so we can chat/IM on the laptop. This is horrible

11/13/2016 10:30:00 AM 1/5 By Palmetto1969
Not even sold from Instagram. Plus, I can’t even find the darn thing on my Mac. I want a refund and I can’t even figure out how to do that!

waste of $ (1.1)
10/25/2016 8:03:00 PM 1/5 By Msmurfie
I am currently going for a refund…this app is a rip off. it doent state that the pro version does not allow you to post photos…only view them. well, whats the point? it may have it in fine print but there is no use in the app without that feature in my opinion.

MISLEADING…BUYERS BEWARE! (1.1)
10/20/2016 7:19:00 PM 1/5 By Unpleased and Unhappy
I purchased the Pro version, however you cannot post pictures from this app. Five dollars wasted and I will be deleting your app. Crooks, I have the same view you provide through Safari. Do not waste your money upgrading to Pro!

direct messaging on laptop? (1.1)
9/9/2016 7:10:00 AM 3/5 By simple.julie
i think that on laptops there should be direct message so that people who don’t have phones can be able to communicate

Amazing app. (1.1)
9/7/2016 1:09:00 PM 5/5 By L.L.L….
I just really needed to post this as a thank you. I could wish for nothing more from this app as it works perfectly. No complaints.

REFUND (1.1)
9/5/2016 7:25:00 AM 1/5 By lakesidefinancial
App does not do anything similar to the app on the phone. It will not even allow me to change my profile picture. I need to know how do I get my refund!

Why create an Instragram desktop app if it’s not going to be complete? (1.1)
8/26/2016 8:05:00 AM 1/5 By Cristian Hurd
Why would you want the Instragram app on your computer if you won’t be allowed to upload images? (which is the main reason why we have it) Not wise at all creating this Desktop App. I don’t see any kind of convenience. It shlould be a replica of how it is on a smartphone. Useless app for the moment. I wasted $4.99 and I want them back!

Seriously? (1.1)
8/22/2016 3:33:00 PM 1/5 By Khamarupa
I just threw away $5. It’s ridiculous that the “pro” app won’t let you post from your computer. Of course that would be what users would expect. But there’s no info given for what the “pro” version offers. I made the mistake of not looking at the reviews first, but that’s no excuse. The developers should have been more forthcoming. Wish I could get my $5 back, because I’ll never even use the mac version of this app now.

Nope, nope, nope, nope, and nope. (1.1)
8/22/2016 12:29:00 AM 1/5 By SourJeff
This app does not work for every laptop/computer. I tried running it on my Macbook Early 2008, and I thought that it was going to work, but it doesn't. I click on the app, it loads up, and closes down. I would use it, because going to Finder just to go to Safari then typing in instagram.com takes why longer than just clicking on an app. Thanks a lot, Joacim. I would rate one star if I could.

app for instagram rating (1.1)

DON’T DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!!! this app is horrible DO NOT go pro that would be your second mistake it’s so annoying how everytime you open the app it asks you to go pro so finally I did it and it’s horrible and I regret it don’t download this app instead go on instagram.com it's way better I promise you this app is a waste of storage

Can’t even upload pictures from my macbook. I also tried amaazon for my kindle and its not compatible. So don’t download it on macbook.

Not worth downloading (1.1)
7/16/2016 1:11:00 PM 3/5 By kai_1326
It’s a good app but only a miniaturised version of the web version which means that you cannot post or message anyone. It’s better if you use the web version because the web version loads much faster and has lesser bugs compared to the app.
