Repost for Instagram
By Red Cactus LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Repost for Instagram makes it easy to #Repost your favorite photos & videos on Instagram while giving credit to the original Instagramer.
When you find something you want to repost in Instagram, simply copy the share URL and open Repost. Then in Repost, you can position the attribution mark and send the reposted media back to Instagram.
NOTE: This app requires an Instagram account to use (sort of).
What's New in Version 3.2.2
Easy To Use App -- I Like It!
I use this app a decent amount (not like some who use it daily). I am not on Facebook myself so, I use it for Instagram, specifically. A quick tutorial for newbies might be helpful on how to get the text to go along with the pics. I know it but, I've had to explain how that works to others.
Also, most important, there the reposted pic and text, if possible, should ALWAYS contain the ORIGINAL person's info/IG name or identification. It the right thing (and probably legal thing) to do -- even if just a cute kitten picture. Someone took that picture and reposters wouldn't have it or be reposting it if that original person hadn't posted it (and 20 others reposted it). Meaning, if Joe Doe posts a kitten pic and 50 of Joe Doe's friends repost it....it contains Joe Doe's info. But if the friends of those 50 reposters then repost it.....now it only contains the name of who they reposted it from (Joe Doe's name has dropped off). Then it gets reposted 5,000 more times and each time, credit for that pic is attributed to someone who never knew or heard of Joe Doe. I think there must be a way to fix that.
I run an Instagram page to network with animal shelters and foster groups to help cats find forever homes. This app makes reposting their stories and requests for help simple and quick. It's a bit tricky to use at first, but once you figure out that you have to "paste" the comments, it's a breeze. I would recommend to the app developers to have a quick tutorial available once you download the app though.
The repost app is easy and quick to use once you figure out how to do it. Love it!
Lower quality pictures?
My general experience with this app has been fine in the past. I run an Instagram page that is 100% dependent on reposting content so I've used this app every day for around a year.
Everything has been great up until recently when I noticed that the photo reposts were being uploaded in a lower quality resolution than the originals.
It frustrates my audience and my team. I have the full version of the app, this shouldn't be a problem. I'll wait for an update that fixes it but I may have to switch apps over this.
