Good app. Does what it's supposed to. You get to see posts, stories and messages. Since it's the "lite" version, not all features are available (I mean obviously). I find the voice feature slightly jarring, and it lags a bit. But that might be my internet. Overall, good app. Def recommended if you're trying to cut down your screen time.

I am using it from a long time but in new updates it is fully loaded from bugs and glitches. When I start typing anything to anyone in message or in story it doesn't capitalised first alphabet of every sentence and sometimes it does not show the sending icon of message. So if you can solve this issue it could be better.

A good alternative for the original instagram app but it requires few tweaks in the interface as it takes few seconds lo load the content and also needs inclusion of filters and calling features. Rest it works fine and does the job, also if reply in notification panel is possible it would have been a win.
