Instagram on pc


has anybody used Bluestacks on their PC for using Instagram? I think it allows you to use various apps on a PC.

I want to use Instagram but need to use my PC and wondered if Bluestacks was worth dowloading etc.

thanks for any help :slight_smile:

Sorry, can’t help, never heard of this. I had no idea that it was possible to use Instagram on a pc. Good luck with it x

hi alison,

i only have just heard about it - would be great to use instagram on pc.

My partner uses Bluestacks- not for instagram, but to essentially allow him to use android apps on the laptop. It works great for the apps he uses, so fingers crossed it’ll work for instagram!

I downloaded this some months ago but it wasn’t very helpful and I abandoned it. I can’t remember now how it worked or didn’t work though. I ended up saving pics to dropbox and transferring to them to iPad. A lot of faff and, as a result, I’m still not using Instagram very much.

thanks so much for this - that’s so helpful of you.

i was concernced that it was not legit - but website looks good.

thanks for your help - may have a go over the weekend. was it easy to download?

is it free? i’ve heard have to pay for it after free trial? thanks.

My partners never paid… There was a time where you had to watch ads to use it I think… but then that seemed to phase out and he hasn’t had anything like that for a while!

I’m assuming its all above board and legitimate, as far as I’m aware it is?

We didn’t have any trouble downloading it and it was free (just didn’t seem to do what we’d downloaded it for).

thanks for your help @SophiesHandmadeBabyBoutique and @RavelloDesigns :slight_smile:


Bluestacks was easy to download. Never got it to work though… Andyroid is another android emulator I believe, when I have 5 minutes I will give it a try!

thanks - is bluestacks a well know thing then - i just worry about viruses on pc etc.

I’ve downloaded it now… I’ve not paid, I just clicked to download their sponsored games and that’s the last I heard of it! It seems to be working for me, thought it doesn’t fill the screen but it doesn’t bother me too much!

Good luck with it!

hi - thanks for this.

i downloaded it too and had a go but decided to un-install in the end as was worried about all the apps you have to have in your pc and read also that it was messing people’s PCs up. i was also worried what was running in the ‘background’ on my pc and using memory etc.
it’s a good idea though.

Not wanting to teach you to suck eggs but I thought I would mention that I post on my phone to Ig from Fb so you can share PC uploaded images.

You just hover over your fb photo to get the “Share to external sources” button :slight_smile:

thanks - i haven’t got phone so that’s why i want to use PC. thanks anyway.

Oh - sorry! x

i may have to get a phone that does something other than makes calls. my current one looks like it is from about 1988.
your advice will help when i do :slight_smile:
