Review from Juliette Baxter
Please make posts show up in chronological order again. I miss so many people's posts because I don't see them until 3-4 days later and it's very annoying. Especially when some big news happens that doesn't matter 3-4 days later when I do see it :////
I love Instagram. Great app. I'ts my go to for picture and short video sharing. I use it for the social aspect of it and like it better than FB in many regards...probably because of its simplicity. This is where I share fun stuff from my life, favorite quotes, and participate in photo challenges. For professional photo sharing I go with eyeem for the market feature and because it has less restrictions .. such as on size. (Holisticfox on both photo platforms)
I knew it was coming, but Facebook finally ruined Instagram too. They have the moronic idea in their heads that they know what I want to see more than I do. Stop screwing with my feed, and just show me everything from the people I chose follow, in chronological order! It's not that difficult. Every update makes Instagram more like Facebook, and I stopped using Facebook for a reason.
Newest update fundamentally breaks functionality. First, my feed is littered with garbage for recommendations (there is already a search, stop forcing me to see stuff I'm not interested in). Second, there is no way to adjust these settings, and that causes the app to crash. Every time. Too bad can't pick a version to install. I'd go back to before there were ads too.
Hated the new algorithm now I hate the new recommended feed. I can't even click on the 3 little dots in the recommended feed Instagram crashes everytime I click on it. Why is the recommended feed on my feed??? That feed is FOR accounts I follow, I see photos and stories recommended for me in the search section why do I need to see them on my feed? There isn't even a setting to turn this off like I said earlier when I click the 3 little dots my app crashes. I swear ever since Facebook bought Instagram the app has gone downhill.
Having issues with stories since updating to Android Oreo 8.0. At the end of the stories of users, it freezes. I'll raise this rating up higher once it's fixed. Edit I hate the new update. I just want to see pics of those I follow in my feed, not all of the extra suggestions and stories.
Suggested posts? No thanks. More of that rubbish than I have new posts. Click the 3 dots and it crashes. No idea if I can get rid of it. Online support is pants. The ads every 3rd post and now this tell me I need to leave the platform. It's not been the same since Facebook :/
Bug fixes and performance improvements
A best collage app for Instagram: IG story size, instasize, layout, text, blur
