I hate the stories feature. The bubbles sit at the top of my app unwatched forever. I don't use snapchat or facebook because I don't want this sort of crud in my face. And dear lord I want chronological order and all posts, not top posts. I don't want social media to be a popularity contest of idiotic memes or causes people only post about for attention.
Everyone is getting the new live update and saying just update your instagram, well i have and its still not there please explain. As well it continues to get more ugly. I dont want to know who else of my friends have liked a photo i just like that solid number.
It'd be a great feature, if I click on someone's follow list(that I'm not following) and see your profile on the very top, recognizing that they're following you. In order for me to know I can follow them back. I feel terrible not following back certain followers, but I'm not going to scroll through someone's profile im not sure im following and go through their 8,000+ follow list to see if I'm following them back. Sorry if this got confusing, a little hard to explain over text. Another thing, not sure if it's just my phone or not. But checking my notifications at the same time of receiving notifications, it jumps me back up to the top of my notications list. I then have to re-scroll down the list in able to get back to where I was. Very irritating
App is great for all the photo features but the messaging is somehow not displaying some messages properly, they seem to disappear often. Status bar coloring should be worked into it as well. Maybe some work is needed on the notifications for Nougat, like being able to reply to a direct message from the notification itself?
Why can't I see all the live videos sometimes I miss them but when I try to go back to see them I can't find them. If you're going to make live video like Facebook at least make it right where I can search and see the live videos they did. Like Facebook where on their page there's all their live videos, Instagram should think of doing that.
It worked fine at first and has good, useful aspects. Now, it is glitching. All my other apps open. All of them with no problem. I opened Instagram, today, and there was a blank screen with a "can't refresh" notice. I closed and opened it. Still blank. I cleared the app's cache. Still blank. I turned my device off and turned it on, again to refresh. Still blank. I uninstalled and reinstalled, still blank. For some people, those fixes work. I updated the app, that is the only way it finally worked again (and I had to turn off my device, turn it on again in order for the Update button to reappear; because my tablet is set to update apps upon turning my device on). Glad it's working, but afraid it will just happen, again. Please fix your app, Instagram.....
