Instagram is definitely one of my favorite social networks. As a matter of fact it’s the 1st place I think to post new pictures. One of the main reasons I like it is that I can post a pic to Instagram and have it also go to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, Foursquare (with checkin) and email all at the same time. If it did Google+ I’d be in heaven. Instagram is great for posting pics and now short videos, but people also post just as many funny or inspiring sayings. These are graphics that could be pictures with text over them or just text on plain backgrounds. Sometimes these sayings are so catchy or funny that I want to share them and give credit to the original poster. It’s often referred to as a #regram or #rp. Yet, Instagram doesn’t really make this easy. As a matter of fact there is really no built-in way to do it. You can take a screen shot with your device and then simply post the screen shot, but I wanted an easier way that wouldn’t clutter up my camera roll with screen shots. That’s where InstaRepost comes in. It’s the best one I’ve seen to date. Once you fire up the app and sign in to your Instagram account you’ll see your feed of the people you follow. You can either scroll through it to find posts you want to repost or you can do a search by user if you knew someone posted something a while back that you liked.
Once you find the post you want to repost, you can simply tap the button to repost it as is or quote what the original poster said about it. It will also give credit to the original author right on the pic if you like and allow you to move that attribution to any side of the picture so that it doesn’t interfere with the text on the pic. It works great and I did the in-app purchase to unlock the additional features (like moving the attribution around and turning off their logo) and make it ad free. You also do have the option to save the original photo if you like. The app is GREAT and I just wish it could repost videos too, but that’s likely a limitation of Instagram at this point.
If you’re an Instagram user, you want the InstaRepost app!
