Before we go into the Instagram plan app goodness: this is not a sponsored post. This is something I’m so excited about, I just had to share it. Let’s go!
I found the solution to all you Instagram problems! Well I didn’t really, Rick did when he got tired of me cussing at my phone. If you’re an Instagrammer, you’ll probably know what happened.
That time a year I hate my Insta-feed
It was one of those days I have a few times a year, when I totally hate my Instagram feed and I want another look. I try several new filters (meaning: spend $15 to get all the good ones from VSCO cam), try different lightning options, different color options…
After a while I think I found it, but then I try the same thing on another photo, and it looks like shit. Frustrated I go on to the next filter, while maybe I should have sticked to that first option a few photos more and see what it would look like in a ‘3 times 3 in a row’ Instagram setting.
I’ve tried to put my potential Insta-photos in a separate folder on my iPhone, but that’s ‘6 times 4 in a row’. Totally different story. I could create a template on my computer and upload all my edited photos into that one, but I’m just not that disciplined. It has to be easy. And that’s where Mosaico comes in!
Finding a solution
Rick was clever enough to google ‘Instagram feed preview app’ when I was about to delete my Instagram account. Or better yet, I was too dump and too stubborn not to google… He found Carrie’s post on Instagram plan apps and I felt reborn. So actually she found the solution to your Instagram problems and I’m just trying to get away with the credits 😉
Everybody, drag & drop!
What makes Mosaico so special? It adds your Insta-feed into the app and then you can add photos you’re thinking of posting. With the drag and drop feature you drag/(re)place the photos with your fingers to try different fits. Hallelujah, the easiest way to see what fits best! You can add captions and hashtags to your photos and they won’t get lost when you drag the photo somewhere else.
Speaking of hashtags: The app remembers the hashtags you use most and you can even create so called ‘tag clouds’, a collection of hashtags for different content. For example, I’ve got a ‘Fashion cloud’ for my outfit posts, A ‘Bali cloud’ for my Bali posts, and so on.
You can select four post times in the app and schedule your post for these times. You’ll get a notification when it’s time to post and if you’ve already added your caption and tags, it’s just a few clicks until your new Insta-photo is published.
A small price to pay
There is a teeny tiny downside to all this goodness and that is that the app costs $5,99. But to me it’s 1000% worth the price! For $1 more you can add an extra account to the app, if you’d like to.
Are you using this app too? Was it the answer to your Insta-prayers as well?
