Anyone who uses Instagram will be painfully aware that it doesn’t have a ‘favourites’ feature that would allow you to easily mark things for future reference. Nor is there a way to save images directly to your phone.
Well in the last few weeks our we’ve been quietly working away on a couple of separate iOS app projects alongside our main SocialSafe app development, and the fruits of these labours are now ready to be enjoyed!
These will be of interest to anyone who uses Instagram on an iOS device, and so we are proud to unveil Likes and Recover for iOS.
Likes [App Store Link] allows you to view a stream of all the Instagrams you have liked, and download any them to your iPhone’s Camera Roll with a single tap. Holding down on an image will take you back to the original on Instagram. It’s as simple as that!
Unlike Twitter, Instagram doesn’t have a ‘Favourites’ feature that allows you to easily mark things for future reference. With Likes you can view all of the photos that you personally liked, without having to scroll back through weeks or months worth of other photos.
All you need to do to get started is download Likes to your iPhone/iPod touch, login through Instagram and the app will show you all of the Instagrams you have liked!
Recover [App Store Link] works in the same way as Likes, but applies to all of your own Instagram photos. So with a single tap you can save any of your photos to your camera roll, or you can press to view that photo – and any comments etc – on Instagram.
By being able to save Instagram photos to your camera roll, you can do things that you simply cannot on Instagram, such as zooming in on photos, or sending the images privately to non-Instagram users via other messaging apps such as WhatsApp, iMessage, WeChat etc.
These apps are both available NOW in the app store, so please download, rate and review them!
