Just Wasted a Month Over an Instagram Bot. I need Someone Who Knows What They R Doing

    This time 4 weeks ago i hired someone who said they could build me an instagram bot. i needed this bot to work across multiple apis and to simply like certain photos in an allocated time frame.

    after investing at LEAST ten hours a day myself testing the bot, giving feedback to the bot creator having him come back with the revised bot and just going throuhg that whole cycle over and over and over. i realized today that my god, we are at the same place we started 4 weeks ago.

    it has been a maddening process. at first i was like okay this is normal , a custom bot is bound to have errors and bugs. lets try to fix these little errors here, but then once those errors got fixed new ones came up it was like a very frustrating psychosis inducing migraine having game of "whack a mole" u hit one thing and another thing pops up. damnit.

    i couldnt take it anymore and i really didnt want to but i had to put my foot down and say "look we need to stop"

    bless his heart, he did try, he was diligent and he corresponded with me everyday trying as hard as he could to fix the problems that came up, but i really dont think he knew how to create an instagram bot that worked with the apis. when i say problems i just mean basic functions. the point of using the bot is that it works better than a keylogger, but in this case it didnt.

    ive tried keyloggers those things r way too inefficient and slow.

    i dont even know if bots are the right solution for this? should i be looking into imacros? or something else?

    i need an instagram PRO to private message me please. i know there is something out there that exists and functions properly because there are IG users who are doing autolikes that get about 3,000 followwers a day. real followers that interact and comment and like their photos. I would greatly appreciate someones help thanks

    and excuse the grammar and all that i have gotten NO sleep these past couple of days trying to test out this damn bot and writing down and reporting the errors to be f ixed only to have more errors come up when those things got fixed.

    I'm curious in the details mate.
    I have made that kind of bot in PHP, and I'm still using it :)

    Yup, I haven't got any problem using auto like method that not using Instagram API.

    Exactly! The API implementation shouldn't be a problem from the looks of the API documentation. You should include the language your coder was writing the bot in, so you can find a more suitable coder.

    Still looking for this as well. Never found any suitable solution though. I know how it's done but haven't been able to code it. Ended up throwing something together which relies on API until I find someone who is selling a working version.

    The IG accounts that manage to get thousands of followers per day don't rely on the API but use http requests instead. I think it will be patched in few months but right now that's the best and only viable option.

    I can easily build you a bot like this, no Ubot crap or even bothering with the API's, there are plenty of web API's available for automation. It doesn't sound like you're going to be really pushing the rate limits anyways, so nothing super complicated to avoid those. Let me know if you're interested.

    Web APIs are great but they won't get you anywhere close to the results OP was referencing. I built a pretty stellar bot that's been doing well but no where near as good as the non-API bots such as the one built by xxf8xx. If anyone's selling one similar to that, let me know.
