The Best Repost Apps for Instagram – February 2019
Instagram has become one of the most popular photos sharing social media platforms in the world. Tell your story not only through photos but with videos as well. String together a collage of photographic memories or create a professional portfolio all on one platform.
Sounds amazing, right?
Though the Facebook-owned photo-centric platform possesses such a popular following for its inspiring features, it still lacks a few that you might expect. The ability to repost your pictures and videos being one of them.
In order to accomplish something so basic, you’ll be forced to use a third-party application. Not that that will be very difficult seeing as there are so many currently on the market that all do relatively the same thing. The issue is weeding through those that are lackluster in order to discover the best app for the job.
Luckily for you, I’ve already gone and done all of the heavy lifting. In this article, you’ll discover the top 4 apps on the market for reposting your Instagram photos and videos.
When first downloaded and installed onto your Android device, Repost for Instagram – Regrann will greet you with a short tutorial followed by the Settings screen. The app provides a few different modes to choose from: a Standby Mode, a Selection Pop-up Mode, Quick Save Mode, Quick Repost mode, and a Quick Post Later mode.
Standby mode is when you’d rather not have the listener feature active. You can set it to a mode that will save posts to your phone for use at a later time. Then, there is the more convenient choice, Selection Pop-up Mode, that will open your app whenever you copy a link for reposting. Quick Repost will shoot out, well, a quick repost of the link. Quick Save, saves the post link to your phone, and Quick Post Later, will store your post and then repost it at a set time.
You do have the option to enable or disable the listener service or add a username watermark to a photo or video. The caption will automatically be copied and kept with the post. There is a nifty feature for adding a signature to the caption or replacing the caption altogether.
Though you can repost posts that contain multiple videos and photos one at a time, they can only be saved directly to your phone and not saved with Quick Post Later mode.
Repost for Instagram – Regrann is 100% free so there is no harm in checking it out before choosing any of the other pay optional choices on this list. It is, however, only available for Android users.
More like a post downloader with a repost function, Repost via Instant provides the user with a three-step reposting process. Retrieve the videos and photos you want and they will be saved to your phone. You can save these photos and videos into separate albums if it makes it easier for you. Then post them to your feed.
Instant uses a listener feature and provides an overlay pop-up that will appear in the center of the screen, including a notification. It can be annoying and also a pain to get rid of which may require you to force stop the app itself.
Posts with multiple photos or videos are provided as a side-scrolling list from which to choose the post for saving in order to repost or you can share the post to a different app. There is a Premium version of this app for $4.99 which offers a few additional features pertaining to watermarks. You can also choose to leave feedback on the app if so compelled.
The app is available for both iOS and Android devices free of charge.
No longer available for iOS but for those of you with Android smartphones, Repost for Instagram is one of the best Instagram reposting apps out there. Packed with plenty of great features and a clean, easy-to-navigate user interface, Repost for Instagram has just about everything you’re looking for. To make use of this great app a breeze, it comes with a built-in tutorial on how to use the app and its features, complete with video and text instructions.
The free version of the app does include adverts and a watermark of the user from which the picture is reposted. However, if these kinds of things bother you, it’ll only cost $4.99 for the Pro version of the app, in order to remove both. On top of this, you can expect Repost for Instagram to copy the caption of the original picture and keep a tidy list of all past copied Instagram links.
Enjoy the listener service that will run in the background while the app is operating, waiting for you to copy Instagram links. Once an Instagram link has been copied, you’ll receive a pop-up notification that will take you directly into the app itself with the copied picture already set to go.
Additionally, you’ll only be able to post the initial picture or video of posts with multiple pictures or videos in them. There is no way around this and hopefully for you, is not a deal breaker. For such a simple to use app that just also happens to be free, I think it’s easily overlooked.
Just like Repost for Instagram, Repost Photo and Video for Instagram also runs a listener service. The difference is that you can access and stop (if you need to) this service from within the notification shade itself.
Repost Photo and Video for Instagram gives you an easy-to-use interface with quick access tabs along the bottom of the screen that lead to copied link history, new posts, and even one to make donations to the developers.
This app also includes watermarks but unlike Repost for Instagram, you don’t have to pay to remove them. Another feature that puts it ahead of the competition is that posts with multiple pictures and videos will be displayed as a list. This will allow you to pick the one you’d prefer as opposed to automatically taking the first in the lot. Expect the caption to accompany the photo or video copied.
Repost Photo and Video for Instagram also has the username watermark option, and you don’t even need to pay to remove the watermark. This app also has a great way of dealing with posts that have multiple pictures/videos. It lists all of them out separately, so you can pick the one you want to post.
A Pro version is offered at $2 but it seems to be more as a donation to the developers as opposed to a direct upgrade. You get everything and more so throwing a couple of bucks at the devs for a job well done isn’t asking for much.
