Instagram is the cool new kid. Millennials are moving away from Facebook, but they’re still pretty stoked with Instagram. It’s a visual medium and, of course, #brands want to get in on the action. It’s only natural.
But the cool kid that Instagram is, it’s being totally chill about the whole thing. Instagram’s like, whatever dude.
For you, though, the social media marketer who was told “we need an Instagram presence”, everything is not totally chill. To manage more than one account, you have to log out and log in again. This can start to get painful really fast.
If you’re on Android, we’ve got a solution to ease your pain a bit. Using an app called Instwogram, you can run an additional Instagram account on your device (the first one being the official Instagram app).
How to Install Instwogram
Instwogram is not available on the Play Store for obvious reasons (it lets you do something Instagram doesn’t approve of). But thanks to the open nature of Android, and a clever developer, you can run it.
Instwogram basically clones the Instagram app but manages to stay out of the way of the official app. It bypasses the Android limitation that says you can’t run two instances of the same app. Literally everything in the app is same. It also means that Instwogram app itself is going to be stable and familiar to use.
Download the APK, and tap the downloaded file to start the installation process. Once it’s installed, open the app.
Setting Up and Using Instwogram
When you launch the app, you’ll see the familiar sign up or login screen for Instagram.
If you already have an account, log in or sign up. Now you’re free to upload pictures, videos, comment on posts, like them, and more.
Instwogram Can Do Even More
This part is strictly for the Android pro user and it’s purely an add-on. If you’re rooted and have Xposed installed, you can download an add-on from Xposed called Instwogram Downloader that will let you download photos and videos from Instagram.
