    Surprised Instadub just came in the BHW market after all this years.
    Instadub is the best IG automation tool for me, so many enormous feature yet to be utilised even in 2years of using it..
    Best support I have ever seen on the Internet,, Instadub has all the features you,, and should in case you want something new, just ask Martin, he is always ready to add up features..
    .
    By the way,, make sure you watch his video tutorials and read forum tutorials and threads too.. Instadub can be a lil confusing at start,, but trust me when you get your way around it.. It's Fun
    .
    Great software overall.. A One time paymemt, 3 machine install, Fantastic Support and Forever Updates..

    Too many warnings / infractions over the years for replying to posts asking about it and stepping over the thin line of replying to a post and moving into promotion territory, so thought better to get a thread where people can ask about it and I can answer :)


    IM contact not available, please post your questions here on the BST / via DM or email

    The program comes with a 30 day test period. Anytime during those 30 days if you wish to receive a full 100% refund, just send in an email and you will be refunded.

    We feel a 30 day refund period trial is better than a 7 day trial as 30 days is better than 7 and the act of actually purchasing shows a level of commitment to learning to use the software and we shall provide complete support to you. Users that just grab a trial version for 7 days, haven't shown that commitment and when we trialled free trials, we just get blasted with support from users, who are not really that committed to making the program work for them, they click here, click there, send in loads of questions, don't read out replies or bother to act on the responses. So the purchase acts as a filter so we can focus on users who are actually considering using the program, rather just "having a look"

    I meant suppose I post an image on Instagram. I want that image to be automatically shared to my dms(not all of them, only the ones I specify).
    When you post an image, a little paper aeroplane icon appears on the image beside like and comments. By clicking it I can send that image to people as a dm. Basically what I wanted to automate was that.
    Another thing I wanted to ask is suppose I have a list of users I scrapped. I want to like and comment on their most recent post as soon as it was posted. Can I keep the like and comment function running all the time to make this happen?

    Finally. Do I need a proxy to run app or can I run from my home computer?

    There is no way to trigger a share of an image after it is posted, but you can set a DM SHARE action, with the token to share your most recent image. So if you are posting images every 4 hours, set the DM SHARE action to run every 4 hours staggered
    No, you would need to run specific scrapes to get that information, there is no way to get instant notifications of new media from just any accounts you choose.

    You can run from your home computer without proxy just fine as long as you don't try and use too many accounts

    Current Review of Instadub:

    After purchasing Instadub I received the download instructions via email including the license and the link to download.
    The download was light on the system, and the program booted up seamlessly.

    The software:
    Admittedly, the interface is very confusing when you first look at it. It took me a few days to mentally process what was going on with the software. That is alongside with the tutorials. Maybe I'm just a slow learner, but one who catches on quickly once I understand what I'm looking at. So consider that when I describe this. Honestly, if there are any criticisms of the program, I would say this is it. And that's saying something.

    Functionality:
    Once I wrapped my mind around the software and began testing it with a few accounts, things started to make more sense. When it starts making sense, you realize how powerful this program is. In a previous comment on this thread I was curious to see how deep this search function goes. Martin humbly certain in this aspect being a (if not THE) unique selling point among the vast array of automation tools in the marketplace was indeed CORRECT in stating so.

    To a tee, there's no other program that has the extensive filters Martin has loaded this program with.

    With that said, there is a learning curve since the interface is initially confusing. Again the only criticism I have of this program.

    While the features are amazing, if you go overboard you also risk slowing the program. This makes sense as more search filters requires more processing power. Keep that in mind if you wish to get trigger happy with the searching features. There's a lot you can do with it.

    I leave out my experience with the actions carried out with the software since, once you get the functionality, is as every other software (essentially).
    I will say I am a fan of some features like the "share across accounts" function on the Follow task since it enables to reduce the amount of headaches associated with spam actions. On the brighter side of that, you could split test two accounts on a list. Without giving all of that away, I do like these options.

    Context:
    My review of this program comes from the viewpoint of having extensive experience with Followliker & some experience with the formerly existent Massplanner (consider Jarvee as the equivalent here since it basically ripped the program). Part of my learning curve and criticism comes from the simplicity I came to know through FL, yet lacking in essential features which exist on bots like Jarvee. In this context, Instadub definitely fulfills where FL lacks & serves as a great alternative to Jarvee (by proxy of MP).

    Feature Request:
    Creating @username links in the bio. I updated one profile with the Follow @username and saw the link not active. I think that's standard of all bots when updating profiles. Yet if the bot uses emulating features, I imagine it might be possible to emulate an actual login to the mobile app and activate the link. Since its a recent feature I don't expect it to be standard. But if implemented, I may never have to personally login to an account to get it running. Helps efficiently run accounts.

    Overall Great Software. Kudos @rootjazz for remaining strong for several years now.

    I'll have to take a look at it and see how it is done in the app.

    <Edit> Feature added, it will be included in the next update I push out later today

    My review after I used it for a few days:
    A new user may take some time to know the bot well.
    Its a feature rich bot.
    Now comes my favorite part:
    The support is top-notch,
    For a one-time fee bot the support
    is just awesome. He is a very good person
    and has patience when answering questions.
    He is very receptive to suggestions, I asked
    a feature to be added and he added it in
    less than 24 hours. What more could I ask for?
    Kudos to @rootjazz for the good work!

    what can we do to increase the speed for scraping? IF i try to scrape by; max ratio(under 2.0),follower/following in specific range, posted within x days, skip business accounts,min posts, and/or add invalid words. IT scrapes super slow (1 hour or so) .

    I would like to know how much RAM does the software consumes
    For example how many accounts can I run at the same time with this bot with 4GB of RAM?
    Also is it HWID LOCKED?
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards.

    Nice. But will it share the same post multiple times if, by the next 4 hours I don't post another picture? Or is there an option where I just share it once.
    I am really hopeful of this DM share action. Can I specify in which DM's I want his action to occure? Because I have hundreds of active DMs and I don't want to sent this to most of them, just a select few.


    I don't need to get an instant notification. The instadub has a liking and commenting action where I can input my own scrapped list of users right? I just need an option where when I activate those actions it will like/comment the most recent post of the targeted account. Is that possible?
    If yes then if I keep those 2 actions running then it should go over the list of users over and over and keep liking the most recent post.

    4gb will run between 1500-2000 accounts.

    You can run the program on machines for your use, these are hardware locked but the install can be removed, freeing you up to install on a new machine





    If you use the token to share the latest image, it will share the latest image which would share the same image multiple times if no new image, so that is not ideal for you. Would you mind sending me an email:
    Code:
    support[at]rootjazz[dot]com
    so we can discuss exactly what you want further, as I am limited in the amount of replies I can make to this thread, so discussing a new feature is not really possible. I have an idea that may suit your needs that would be a 5 minute job to add, but not 100% sure it is what you want.

    As above, send me an email so we can discuss in detail and make sure we are both talking about the same thing :)

    [/quote]

    oh ok, if it doesn't need to be instant instant , then you would just do a CUSTOM SEARCH with the step LATEST POST. Latest post will return the latest post if valid (pass filter, not processed already) or nothing, it will not find an older image that also passes your filter / not processed, so should do exactly what you want. Set this action to repeat every (x) minutes (y) hours to ensure you detect when a new image is posted




    As per my post to you on this in the other thread, I am not sure if I spoke to you already, but I will assume not and start from the beginning. Apologies if this is already known info to you.

    When a search is performed, the search may return 10 results per request, it may return 100. If not filter is required, then can just be stored as results to be processed. When you want to filter, an additional request is required to get that results full information, to check it against your filter.
    So we have gone from 1 request to get 100 results to 101 requests to get the results and then check the filter options. These 100 requests, can not just be blasted through as you will get a warning, then a block from ISG. Additionally, some filter options will require an additional request, such as LATEST POST, so for your case, it is 2 additional requests per result, so we have gone from 1 request for a 100 results, to 201 for 100 results.

    Also, depending on your search, you may find 50% of the results pass your filter, so if you want 100 results, that would be you need to check 200 results (thus 402 requests) to get your 100.
    But if your sucess rate is only 10%, then we are now having to check 1000 results, with 4000+ requests.

    Hence why filtering increases the time.


    There is no way around this, except by using more accounts. So rather than using 1 account for all 4000 requests, if your action could be split over 4 accounts, that is only 1000 requests per account, so the action can run 4x quicker.
    Use 10 accounts and it can now run 10x quicker.

    Currently, the only way to do this (and I admit it is not ideal) is to
    a) run your search WITHOUT filter
    b) divide your results of profiles / medias (search depending) into separate files
    c) run a filter on your results using a search input type of FILEPATH, assigning one file to one account.


    As I said, not ideal, but if you have 10,000 results to check and 10 accounts to use, the time saved in the search time, may make it worth while for the setup.
    However, tests are ongoing to:
    a) do the above automatically:
    i.e. divide a single results file into multiple files and assign one each to an account

    b) allow multi account search actions to multi thread their way through the filter stages.

    Option (a) is a hacky solution (but quick) whilst (b) is being tested. Option (a) is actually ready, but not released, (b) is currently in development. I hope to have (a) released today / tomorrow and (b) mid-next week.

    That said, this will only work if you have multiple accounts are your disposal. If you only have one account, there is no away to speed up searching and not get blocked.

    If you would like a notification when these options are ready, send me an email
    Code:
    support[at]rootjazz[dot]com
    Or if you would like to follow up the discussion as I will not be able to reply here for a couple of days

    Lots new features just released due to fantastic suggestions from users.

    After Posted Image, trigger a DM SHARE+msg to users / threads (groups). Useful for engagement groups

    Website / proxy supported / threadable details scraping of profile details (followers / followings count). As no longer using API, any cheap proxies will do and can blast through big numbers quickly to find follower_count / following counts for big lists

    Promo Module allows full pre-actions

    Bulk Action search term update on Processing tab

    Specify exact locations / user tags for image posting (previously was bulk assign).




    Don't forget to let us know if there is any must have feature missing. Simply post it here to the BST for further discussion

    A few questions ,
    1. Realistically , how efficient is this software?
    2. How many accounts honestly can this software run efficently on a normal VPS 4 Vcores and 8GB ram?
    3.Can this software run efficiently 300 accounts on a VPS such as this 4 Vcores and 8 gb ram ?
    4. Is this software CPU intensive or RAM ?
    Without buying a dedicated server for $500 a month how many accounts can we run on this software?

    Not too sure exactly what you mean by "efficient". Efficient could mean using heavy cache, which would increase RAM but decrease lookups and requests. Or you could mean, low RAM but more lookups and requests. But hearing what specs other programs require, it is much more efficient than those

    One of the problems is the program lists your accounts with some metrics displayed in the table. If you have 1000+ accounts in an instance, this can cause some lag. So memory wise it is fine, updating the control can lag. For this I would keep instances to about 500 accounts if you are going to be scrolling through your lists a lot, adding actions often. If not, then it doesn't really matter and you can have many more accounts. But assuming you have 500 accounts per instance and run 4 instances on the machine, it would give you easily 2000 accounts, which is probably a low estimate. But you said "efficiently" so I will go with 2000. You can run more and I know some do, but honest, the program is not specifically geared for users with 2000 to 5000 accounts. Anyone running that many accounts, really needs a bot developed solely for such levels, their control system would be different to users running 1-50 account which is probably the vast majority.




    easily


    Neither really, but CPU is used as the database is disk based not ram based

    A lot



    A single license allows you to install and use on 3 machines for your use. You can run as many instances of the program on those 3 machines as the machines let you.




    It is a desktop app, so you can run it on your home PC / laptop. As to "best" server, well it depends on your requirements.
    Best for one user is cheap. Best for another user is stability. Best for another is sheer power.
