Missing Instagram here are 5 alternatives you can use  — The update

Back in June 2017, I wrote article about 3 alternatives you could use for the Instagress blues.

However, Archie one of the automation tools I mention has since closed for business, around 10 days after I published my article.

Yes another tools has fallen victim to raft of Instagram cease and desist.

However since then my original article has gathered a little speed, which resulted in requests for updates on automation tools.

The whole Instagram and automation issue is very touchy subject, especially in the growth communities.

So instead I thought I would just do a whole new article, well not really if you read how it’s titled.

With most of, if not all of the popular automation services getting shut down, this has caused a whole new spring of Instagress clones attempting to pick up where the rest have fallen.

So here are the 5 alternatives for Instagress

1. Combin

Combin is an Instagram growth tool with a powerful search functionality.

The user may perform searches by locations, hashtags, and by a combination of the activities.

Combin tools states this is the best way of finding the most relevant posts and accounts for users. Combin also saves time by automating actions as search results refreshing, as well organizing followers, likes and comments to your convenience with its filtering and sorting abilities.

The great feature of Combin it has got a limit function that runs in line with Instagram likes, and following limits.

This takes the strain of worry about being likes blocked or receiving a temporary ban.

It also has a great Interface, and a clear & clean UI (User Interface) making easy to use for virtually anyone.

At the moment it doesn’t support as many features as some of the other automated solutions.

If your looking for a easy to use tool for Instagram Combin could be the answer.

Combin is available on for Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems.

Instagram bots are forever promoting growth while you sleep. But one must remember using a Instagram bot can bring you amazing results to help grow on a faster scale but…… People hate spam and guess who else does? Instagram, so always use Instagram Bots and bots in general with care or don’t use them at all. So how can you be sure these clones will do the job, without getting your account banned. Always do trials with a test account before actually throwing in your main account into the automation fire.

If you still need your Instagress fix after this I would say the best alternative is considering to build your own solution for an Instagram bot. However this all depends on what your intending to use Instagram for.

Just in case you really are badly missing Instagress here is a exact clone for you 🙂 the price is good too

$5.99/mth for 10 accounts or $9.99/mth for 100 IG accounts)

I hope these help,

Stay Gramming 🙂
