    Just looking to see what everyone else is using to schedule their Instagram posts? I've been using FL but once I start to monitize my account I want to move away from using a bot, does anyone know of an online web based tool that you can use for Instagram?

    Cheers

    I really don't understand the difference between a "bot" like FL and these web based services.
    To me, if you're not using the IG app then you're "botting" or "cheating" in some way.

    Instagram does not have an official API for uploading images, hence 99% of the bots out there are using the private API (which they get by reverse engineering the application) whether it's web-based or desktop-based.

    I have just tried the gramblr new version (2.0) and it seems that works fine.

    I scheduled a pic and just now it was posted.

    You have to provide them an email and a password, be careful and choose a password different from the one you have for your email

    And the best, it's free

    http://schedugr.am/ claims they use a pool of real devices to upload the photos. But they're super expensive.

    Yes, they claim that... so they must also have a real person taking care of your account and posting manually... hmm...

    I use hootsuite. You need to confirm the posts at posting time though

    Just downloaded 'Publish' by Codigami (same people behind Crowdfire). I need something with a strong mobile app as that's what I'll be using to set up posts for the most part. If anyone has a better mobile alternative let me know.

    I've used HootSuite and it's good, sketches me out that you have to manually log in to each account to post. I could see that being an issue if you had multiple accounts.

    I use latergram, it doesn't crop your landscape/portrait images to square by putting white borders around them. However, I've struggled to find a scheduler that will let me post full size images without the square size, since IG just changed their allowed aspect ratios.

    Someone said it because they are using private API's and it's easily bannable. Also, a lot of bots out there just scrape and use the info for spam or malicious intent. That's why people farm hundreds of IG accounts and build them up liking/unliking, following/unfollowing, auto-commenting non-sense, etc., because by the time they are done they have like 10 left, Lol. (You know what I mean)

    There is no service, without for example HootSuite's 'schedule and confirm' method that can provide legitimate scheduling like on Twitter using their API, etc.,

    The only one I know of was also already mention, which is http://schedugr.am. The reason this works and seems pretty safe too is because they have a pool of mobile devices and essentially manually post the photo, caption, and even hashtags that other schedulers currently lack. They do have very strict rules though. But it is about as close to legitimate scheduling that you will find.

    The reason this works is again, they are simply just posting for you, and it costs money. But with that said, they seem to have good reviews so far and state they will never disclose to IG people using the service.

    Oh also sidenote: I know that sounds like a plug for schedugram, but I actually don't use it. I just read a lot about it because it is an indie Australian company and they have an interesting business model.

    Anyone that tries it out let me know how it is. Love the pitch on their page and the web interface looks clean, too.

    Massplanner does that, and it's quite cheap comparing other services/tools. A lot of setting to choose how to post your images. I recommend that.
