Million and more thanks to @bentossell for helping a rookie out ๐Ÿ˜ŠSoo excited to be on PH ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŽ‰ Our story in a snippet: We love Instagram, but we HATED our feed. All we wanted was a simple and beautiful tool to help better tell our story, our journey. UNUM's V1 features to help you visualize and schedule your Insta Feed: -Save and edit drafts -Custom filters -Crop and edit tools -Rotate and rearrange your photos -Tile your photos -Schedule all your pictures at once with Scheduler (or hold picture to post manually) -Save time by adding descriptions to as few or as many photos -Connects to your Insta feed -And more on the horizon ๐Ÿ’ For now, weโ€™re exclusive to iOS, but Android and Web versions are coming soon! ๐Ÿ”จBuilt for: Instagrammers, start-ups, influencers, brands, etc. Fun fact ๐Ÿ™ˆ: The Latin phrase, โ€œE Pluribus Unum,โ€ means โ€œOut of many, oneโ€ which we think sums us up nicely :) Fun fact 2 ๐Ÿ™‰: โ€œE Pluribus Unumโ€ is found on the back of every U.S. dollar bill! *Hopefully you like it, but if not, then hey at least you know some more random facts ๐Ÿ˜Š We are so proud to share UNUM with the Product Hunt community and cannot wait to hear from you all!!
@dillonmorgan22 Great job on the app, however as I was playing around with it, I couldn't really figure out how to schedule a post. When I click on the hourglass, I can select "Time of Day" and "Frequency" but how does it work? Let's say I pick 3x on midday. Does it post the next three images at the same time? And what does morning, midday, evening mean? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Cheers!
@philipkuklis Thank you for your feedback Philip! Our next build will have a tutorial on the scheduler ๐Ÿ’ƒ Hopefully this helps! Each section (Morning, Midday, Evening) have a range of times. So you'll get notified between (morning is 8am - noon, midday is noon to 4, evening is 6 - 10pm) So if you posted 3x on midday, you'll be notified 3x between that time range ๐Ÿ˜Š
@dillonmorgan22 @bentossell very promising, I've been looking for a solution for months ! I even create a sketch file in order to curate our content better. Finally an iOS app ! Still a few bugs, but looking forward seeing you squashing them !
@anachronikal thank you so much!!! Ya we're definitely on the hunt for those little buggers ๐Ÿ”Ž๐Ÿ› If you don't mind, we'd love for you to email us (team@unum.la) the bugs or features you'd like to see so you won't have to create any more files ๐Ÿ˜‰
Hey @dillonmorgan22 this is pretty cool! Any plans for being able to manage multiple Instagram accounts at once within the app?
@thebriankidwell thank you!! And yep, that's the next step ๐Ÿ˜Šand it looks like Instagram is now working on that too haha
@dillonmorgan22 that feature will be a game changer for you and Instagram. Logging in and out of accounts is such a terrible experience right now.
@dillonmorgan22 Yes! That's great to hear. Is there any sort of timeline on this?
@goelv We agree 100% It's so annoying for us too!
@thebriankidwell Couldn't give you an exact date now Brian, but it'll be sooner than you think ๐Ÿ˜
Feel like a good Instagram scheduler has been needed for a long time now. How should a startup go about using this? Any Instagram strategy tips in terms of filters, types of photos, etc.
@sydney_liu_sl Thanks a lot Syd! UNUM is all about saving startups time. Time to focus on their own product/service, while knowing that their online brand/story wonโ€™t be jeopardized. 1) Hereโ€™s how we use our own tool to grow our brand: - First we ask the standard questions: Who are we? What do we want to represent? What story do we want to tell? etc. - Then we find and store pictures that fit that description - We upload them to UNUM, edit, filter, rotate, tile, etc. until our feed mirrors our brand - Weโ€™ll use the draft feature and compare the two to see which arrangement is better - Add descriptions ahead of time - Schedule them or hold to manually post (if we really wanted to release a picture because of a particular Instagram trend) - And depending on how often you post, youโ€™ve set your Instagram feed days, weeks, even months in advance - Quick and headache free haha, then we go back and work on our product (which is our own tool in this case haha) 2) Tips: What is hot now: fades and single color schemes, but it really depends on your product. Iโ€™d definitely play around with the tile feature and weave images in between, it will bring more life to your Instagram feed and set you apart from the rest :)
Wow have we needed this for a while. Eager for the Android version.
@cc_chapman Glad to hear it :) Curious, would you rather have a web version or android version first?
@dillonmorgan22 Android. I use Instagram from my phone.
@cc_chapman gotcha ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Love this product!
