Ratings and Reviews
This app is a huge help!
I use it to manage my clients as well as my own IG account. I also use the companion app Cleaner made by the same developer. I use Captivate to add followers and Cleaner to remove them. I like how Captivate has the settings in place to help safeguard against triggering the IG limitation for follow and unfollow actions. While you can unfollow in Captivate, the Cleaner app makes it a lot easier and keeps everything seamless for me at least. When I use the search I generally mirror an influencer’s followers or recent liker’s from a fresh post and just watch it grow. I do keep the limits on like 50 default actions at a time, 90 second one actions for following, hide people I’m already following and hide people I’ve already unfollowed so that there’s no duplicates. I also this this a different times in the day keeping under 100 but no less than 50 actions at a time. Doing this in collab with some organic activity when I’m not using these apps directly in IG keeps everything kosher. Also too when you are running these apps just a word of advice make sure you’re not posting or liking things in the actual IG app at the same time. That way you won’t flag the algorithm to give you issues 😊
Pretty good, several issues
The app sets good guidelines for helping you avoid getting temporarily blocked by instagram's dumb following/unfollowing limits. Worked great when I started using it and my growth was explosive at first (1,000 new followers in just one day). It has slowed down a little lately though. Also, the discover section has been recycling the same accounts. So I'll follow a batch of people and if I unfollow them later on, they reappear in the discover section. It needs a filter for people you've previously followed and unfollowed since I can't honestly remember every single account I've ever followed and then unfollowed later on. There are also a lot of accounts in the discover section that say no relationship, but when I look at their profile it turns out I have dozens of mutual friends. Good app but not quite hitting the mark yet.
Edit from previous review: they seriously need to add an option to batch follow from the search tab. The discover tab shows the same accounts over and over again, and the search tab only allows you to follow one at a time (I can do that just using Instagram...don't need an app for this). The discover tab shows a lot of garbage, fake accounts, and users unrelated to my brand, so this is a must if I want to target accounts that I actually want to interact with
Absolute necessity for anyone trying to grow on IG
I have been using Captivate for over 2 years now. At first there was no cloud service and you needed to keep your device unlocked, app on screen, and in the charger for hundreds of hours straight. Then the lead developer added the cloud feature and there were some bugs. But now, the app does whatever I want and exactly how i want it.
I want to thank Mr. N for taking the time to make this app, fix every bug that arrises, and provide such an easy-to-use UI.
I want to also make it known that I am in no way shape or form associated with Captivate or anyone that works with them aside from contacting the developers via email to give some ideas. I know that whenever I see a positive review on the app store, yelp, google, etc., I always think “this is just the owners making fake accounts...,” so thats why i wanted to say this
