    Instagram is a mobile app, any chat for pc gets points to counter that


    Only direct messages support, could provide something more

    Valuable due to Instagram be a Mobile Only application, text and other contents are needed to access it from PC. GIVE THIS BOYS VALUE FOR THAT

    Can be more, can be less, can be surprising, i know that Instagram sucks on permitions granted BUT make it worth

    It's much easier to type thoughtful messages on a real keyboard with a large screen.


    There are some bugs/delays with sending messages.

    This tool is invaluable for anyone who'd like to reach out to someone on Instagram and cares about what the message actually says. Small touch screens produce typos and thoughtless, hard to understand word convolutions. Taking the time to write a message on a desktop can make a big difference. This is important as Instagram is becoming not just a marketing tool but also a way to collaborate and communicate for creative professionals. IGDM solves the above issue.

    I do hope it gets updated and solves some macOS issues, such as not being available in search, and strange delays while sending DMs. Other than that it's great.

Dude seriously thank you for creating this tool! You have no idea how much this helps me stay productive so I don't have to be on my phone all day I can just log in to my computer and handle business and other little things here and there. You've inspired me to work on my fist open source or programming project I'm not sure what it is but you've sparked a flame. Again thanks man!!!

Hey guys I was just wondering 2 things. 1- Can this get your account suspended by using ? and 2) What measures are being taken for security. How do we know our datas not being compromised

@cellus_christie to answer the question about security, the communication is strictly between your computer and instagram, so yes this is pretty safe. There's no intermediate servers anywhere or anything. As proof, the source code of this project is published free for anyone to inspect for anything fishy. See https://github.com/ifedapoolarew...

Very good app, but a few things.. 1. The pop up 'you got a message' is very annoying, is there a way to turn it off ? 2. The chat delay.. 3. chat bubbles are blue and white.. but the background is also almost white.. not a good idea, possibility to change it ? 4. Emojis are without colour.
