    So I want to code an Instagram follow bot which does not use the API. Usually I can just fire up fiddler and take it from there but I am not sure how to sniff everything out from an app. I have tried running Instagram on blue stacks to sniff it but couldn't get anything to come up.

    As an alternative, does anyone know if web.stagram uses the API? That would be easy enough to do. Also, if anyone could tell me how you know if it uses the API or not that would be great as the only way I could find out would be to follow 200 people and see if I get a limit.

    Cheers,
    xxf8xx

    wait... I'm not 100% sure because my iMacro script adds around 130 people per hour, over 3000 per day and I gain 1500 pure followers. So, api limit is 200 per hour and I don't exceed that because I script is limited to 130, but that is also not bad. Before API stuff i added throgh followgram 20K people per day and 5000 followed me back

    Set fiddler up as a proxy and configure your iphone to connect to it.

    matrica1,

    Would you send me your script for gramfeed? I'd appreciate it.

    fiddler shows raw data, doesn't it? not sure why you can not see anything.
