    I have searched for about 2 hours now and I'm coming up with absolutely nothing. How can I schedule Instagram posts? There MUST be a way.

    Even though Instagram is available as an add-on for HootSuite, it doesn't let users auto-schedule posts. That must be done manually within Instagram. Instagram doesn't have an upload API so as far as I know there's no way to schedule an upload to it. Other photo networks, like Flickr, have third party uploaders let you schedule updates over time.

    I am looking to see if anyone has made a workaround. This website has some how managed to create a program to upload to instagram and as far as I know is the only program to do so. But it does not have a schedule feature.

    I was planning on coding a scheduling for Gramblr back when I owned it, but it just didn't seem like it was worth the time and effort since nobody expressed interest in it. I was in contact with HootSuite about implementing it in, and they said they really wanted to but couldn't jeopardize their relationship with Facebook.

    Id code a damn scheduler if I knew how. I mean I can code, but I don't know how you actually posted. I assume you are pseudo-emulating some how.

    Run it in an emulator and sniff. I thought about doing this too, but I didn't feel like it'd be worth it for me, more of a do it because I'm not supposed to thing.

    You wont find a browser based solution because Instagram does not allow uploads via their public API. If they allowed this, it could potentially make their app redundant if an aggregator site could potential outgrow the main app if it got big enough. So you will never find a browser based version that allows scheduling.

    We are working on sociota.tk and was looking to integrate Instagram as well in future. It's a bad news that they don't allow uploads from their API.
