igSpeedster is made for social media managers and power users of Instagram who are currently frustrated from the pains of using Instagram. This jailbreak tweak elegantly modifies the Instagram app, allowing you to manage multiple accounts, repost in app, click on links, copy caption and more, saving you potentially up to and over 10,000 minutes per year. Yeah, that’s a lot of savings.
It sucks doesn’t it. Logging in and logging out, then logging out and logging in. All to manage multiple accounts. Something that becomes even more hellish when you manage more than two accounts. Say goodbye to this pain with super fast icon flicka-licious account switching saving you potentially up to and over 3,000 minutes per year.
As a power user or social media manager, you will need to to do a lot of catching up on previous posts from different accounts. Going one by one is painful and time sucking. Thus, we made it so you can view the homestream 3 pics per row, allowing you to catch up on things lightning quick, saving you potentially up to and over 1,000 minutes per year.
You can now do this in 1 tap as opposed to the 6 taps of opening a separate app, copying a pasting a url and then downloading. This saves you potentially up to and well over 2,000 taps per year.
Your days of wasting time launching another app to repost are over. You can now do this lightning fast within the instagram app saving you potentially up to and well over 10,000 taps per year.
Those moments when you see "posted 1d" and you need to know the exact time and you feel powerless are over. You can now see detailed timestamps allowing you to take appropriate actions as needed.
Simple but crucial time savers that save you from those dreaded "copy share url".
It helps us keep development going with planned features such as dropbox integration, real post scheduling without needing another app, muting etc. More importantly, It sends a strong message to Instagram that we social media managers and pro users need our needs met with a subscription based pro version. So, even if for some reason you can’t use igSpeedster, please spread the word and sign our petition.
Yes and you should be proud of yourself when you do this. Federal regulators gave you this power. Use It cautiously. If the negativity about jailbreaking still concerns you, you can have your company buy a separate iPhone or iPod touch for Instagram usage.
Partly because you won't be able to post from the app due to the limitations of Instagram’s API, leaving you with a crippled Instagram experience that forces you to use two apps, further wasting your precious time. In addition, a jailbreak version actually allows us to do more powerful things than anything you can get in the app store.
They could do a couple of things
All our intentions are good and have been stated above. We can’t think of any reason Instagram should have a problem about this. Heck, they should even embrace us. It has happened before. Arnaud Coomans hacked and reverse engineered Instagram for a fun project and ended up getting hired by them. Keep in mind everything we are doing is legal.
This is the worst case scenario which we have done our best to prepare for with a good number of countermeasures within this tweak to keep things working. This is not our first rodeo. Our team members have built software that mighty Apple unsuccessfully tried to crush. However, one can never be fully prepared for the evil and bullying ways of silicon valley companies even though everything we are doing is legal. So, if things turn sour, direct your anger at Kevin Systrom / Mark Zuckerberg and not us :) However, we optimistic this won't happen. Systrom and ‘em seem like cool dudes.
We plan on letting Instagram executives know the amount of people interested in igSpeedster like features. The number of users already using and paying for igSpeedster is very encouraging but we still need to make a strong case for Instagram to build these features for us in the future. Kindly enter your email to be added to the list of those interested. In addition we will notify you on our discussions with Instagram.
As the Chief Digital Officer at Mavin Records and Social Media Manager for some of the world’s biggest celebs and athletes, I quickly realized at this rate I would be losing well over 20,000 minutes of productivity using Instagram. I had to do something urgently. Thanks to my experience with jailbreaking since 2007 and most recently building OneHandWizard, I was able to hook up with some awesome developers to build igSpeedster within a few weeks. I then debated whether to make this public. It was clear to me that many were suffering like me and Instagram would do nothing about it. I hope to change that now.
