    Hey!

    The bot is nice, I see it has most of the basic functions, but the UI is really unfriendly, I don't even know how to navigate it. Try making it nicer, something like FollowLiker, MassPlanner, etc.

    I do have a specific idea.

    Please let us edit the user agent, it would mean the world to me!

    Also, I don't mean to insult you or anything, but you should really protect your bot a bit better, I managed to disassemble it using the simplest Java decompiler. :)

    Means you pay an annual price, for having a blue title.
    But you also get access to the VIP zone, which sometimes has some nice tutorials.


    The download link is in my first post (page 1), let me know how it goes :)

    The official price will be ±$189, but this is yet to be confirmed.

    I have to disagree, our UI is much more user friendly.
    However, user-friendliness is a very subjective matter ;)
    You're probably biased to FollowLiker, that's why you prefer their UI over ours.
    The user agent is being handled internally, and it takes a random one for each account you add.

    Cheers all!

    very helpful, thank you. definitely looking to get on board with this thing.
    i will gladly help with any testing and whatever i can do to keepl this going.

    1. will you constantly be takingadvice and feedback from the users to keep adding on to the product?
    2. in light of I G coming down really hard on all these bots, how will you maintain privacy/anonymity and that it remains out of both their sight and firing line? i am planning on moving my 30 accounts over to this bot and possibly adding another 50-70 accs in the coming weeks.
    3. lastly, the cost; is it $189 annually?

    The big question is:

    What are you going to do about the purging of automation software. How are you going to fight off IG?

    3 posts higher he said that the bot will most likely be $189. ;)

    As mentioned earlier in the thread it probably will go private after this beta. So either VIP section or his personal site :)

    Looking forward to new features - you should also look at changing video hash while posting in addition to this -
    • Automatically edit images, remove meta data and slightly adjust MD5 hash of image.

    Thanks for the beta @healzer. I like that it is really easy to understand and use. I would like to suggest a feature though, that would make InstaQ (for me at least) the killer-app: To like media of followers of a specific user.

    Hey :)
    Yes definitely, however, I am having my doubts that MD5 is of much use these days.
    Have a look at this for some research I did: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/the-dark-world-of-steganography.941024/

    Yes, that will definitely be implemented in the coming few days.
    Here is a list of all available and upcoming features: http://forum.healzer.com/topic/185-instaq-features-and-requests/

    Definitely not, but right now you can use it for free until we decide to close "beta" :)

    Cheers!

    You may have heard that MassPlanner is being shutdown. To prevent such a thing from happening to InstaQ, we will be privatizing. This means we will no longer have public websites/pages. Word of mouth will be the only way to get in touch with any of our products.
    If one of our products ever gets shutdown, we will anonymously publish all code online for everyone to use. It will then be up to the goodwill of anonymous coders to support it.

    Use it with a test account before using it on your primary account(s), to make sure all works fine.

    Update 1.0.1.8
    • Scrape user's followers using the query: @username/followers
    • Scrape user's followings, query: @username/following

    Update 1.0.2.0

    The end of the beta phase is approaching.
    We have implemented the unfollow feature:

    [​IMG]

    Using it is very straightforward, just head over to the "main" viewer, and under the "Unfollowing" tab click the Start button.
    You will receive a confirmation dialog telling you that unfollowing can take some time because it will first scrape all your account's Followers and Followings. The max scrape limit for each is a bit over 50k users - this is a restriction by Instagram themselves.

    Once the preparation phase is done, it will start unfollowing users based on the #unfollowing and timeout you specify.
    The Unfollowing count is just how many users it should unfollow in the operation. The timeout is the number of seconds between each unfollow operation.

    Two important notes:

    First It's important that no other operation on the account is running, especially not the "follow" feature, otherwise it could unfollow users which you've just followed recently.
    Secondly, only run the unfollow a certain time after the "follow" feature has finished. It's best to wait 1-2 days and give your audience time to follow you back, those which do not follow you back will then be unfollowed [​IMG]

    Right now the unfollowing is done manually like this, but in future updates we will make it part of the autopilot operation.

    If anyone has questions or comments feel free to reach out.

    Cheers!
