I found out this app accesses your camera when you’re not in camera mode. I’m not sure if its a glitch, but this is definately a breach of security. It also messes with your notification when you get a message through. Awful app, Instagram. SORT IT!!!
Really good app but I’ve noticed I don’t have the walkie talkie button where I know most people have don’t know if it’s because I live in the uk but I hope it gets fixed
It’s very slow. And it’s won’t let you reply messages. And it’s not good at all. Better stick it’s Instagram
can you make an option where i can switch accounts? i choose the wrong one and it’s pissing me off i can’t change it
1. Bring back the previous IG fonts please... You would win me back as a user 2. This app is extremely buggy 3. Stories quality are always bad because text or stickers are warped on the screen 4. Earlier versions if this app was much more proficient
Stop taking me to threads every time I try to open a dm on instagram 😭 so out of the way and unnecessary
I just downloaded this to be able to caption videos for accessibility. I uploaded a recorded video to caption, and as soon as I edit one word, it flips my video sideways to horizontal...for zero reason. The captions still display upright and there is NO way to fix it! Makes no sense and it’s very frustrating. Also, I would love to record IN the app to save a step, but how is there no hands-free option? I agree with other reviews that they just need to add the captions options directly to Instagram and call it a day.
I don’t even use this app for the Threads, I use it like a “Facebook Messenger” for Instagram because all my group chats are on Instagram, but I want to spend less time scrolling through my feed. It’s awesome for that, but my one suggestion would be to give the option to combine your close friends and everyone else into one inbox, or at least make it so you can swipe between them rather than having to hit that tiny button at the top to switch between inboxes.
PERFECT TRANSCRIBE BUT YOU CANT SAVE VIDEOS LONGER THEN 15 SECONDS. WHAT?
Add f noo ks
Needs hands free recording and needs to record for longer than 15 seconds! Give us at least a minute like Instagram does! Glad captions have finally been rolled out though.
every time i try to send a photo so someone, it says that the message was not delivered and cannot be retried. this is really frustrating because i usually don’t save the photos so my message is just gone forever
I don’t EVER write reviews but I am for this. I downloaded it initially bc someone mentioned the CC feature for stories. I tried it out. I wish I could chnage the font/layout to be less arty and more accessible/readable. So I’m not going to be using this feature. But I then discovered this app is good way to message without opening Instagram. Being able to reply to a whole bunch of people really fast without getting sucked into the Instagram feed is such a HUGE WIN for me. Also; I like the ui/ux 😉
The app itself is what it says it is, and that’s great. However my problem is that some features aren’t available to some users because of their location. So my only feedback would be to expand on the list of countries or regions so that whoever actually has access to this app in the AppStore or wherever, would also have access to the very same features they downloaded the app for. I was really keen on trying out the transcribing audio, but again as we now know- it’s not available. And I can’t be using a VPN every time I want to transcribe a simple 15sec video. There’s no ease of use in that, and that should be one of the apps ultimate goals, if not all apps.
Where is the close caption feature for iPhone XS?
I like this app so I don’t have to use the explore page on Instagram but I wish we could switch between accounts easier than signing in and out each time :(
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
