    So I just finished my instagram bot which does not use the API. Currently on my crap connection it's following about 80-100 users every minute. I'm not really sure what to do with it now. I'm either going to just keep it to myself, sell it to some people to make a quick buck, or release it for free but limit it in some kind of way.

    What would you do?

    Cheers,
    xxf8xx

    If I release it it would either be for the whole community, or just for Jr Vip+ or something. I'm still leaning more toward selling it though since it will probably be patched soon and I could use a couple hundred or whatever I get for it.

    If you are going to sell it you will have to keep it updated.....if you know its going to be patched then its a bit of a downer if you flog it and run.

    However, as you have spent your own time putting together you should get something for it - just make sure people know its a limited time thing and they are paying for the method that may or may not close shortly.

    Just my 2p worth - I know what the support side of bot writing is like :)

    No one can tell you to release it for free / paid / never give away....thats up to you :)

    use it for yourself! as soon as you release to the public, it will be patched. you can easily monetize this traffic. just think about it :)

    I'm interested! I tried one of the free bots I found in this forum, it sucked, did like 20 follows an hour.

    I used to program c++ over 10 years ago. I've done some php and a lot of HTML the past few years. Can you please point me to how I can go about programming bots myself? Do you know of any tutorials that show how to program simple bots? I'm using a Mac. Much appreciate any help bud. Thanks!

    PS I'm hoping you end up giving it out for free. I've got a monetizing idea with instagram I'm dying to try out. Though with 30 followers I can't get anywhere.

    I would put limited copies up for sale to close friends and family, while I use the Bot for my own personal profit.

    If you can think of a way of using this to make money I would hold onto the method as long as you can, as soon as you release it then the amount of usage will get it patched a lot quicker

    I think that you should sell it or release it somehow because ive been waiting for something like this. At least maybe tell us how you were able to achieve it.

    Found out instagram is a good way to get optins to my email list. I decided I'm going to keep it for myself but for any coders out there, here is how you do it.

    First you'll have to know about HttpWebRequest/Post and you should be familiar with Fiddler.

    Anyway, all you have to do is connect your iphone to the wifi your laptop is on and then set the wifi proxy on your iphone to your laptops IP. Then you can use Fiddler to see everything that's going on in your phone. The only thing you won't be able to get this way is the login info. For this you will need to use the following URL:

    Code:
    https://instagram.com/accounts/login/?next=/accounts
    
    Visit that link through Safari on your Iphone and login to get all the header info you need.

    After that just copy/paste the header info and do what you gotta do.

    Cheers,
