Million and more thanks to @bentossell for helping a rookie out 😊Soo excited to be on PH 💃🎉 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 💁 For now, we’re exclusive to iOS, but Android and Web versions are coming soon! 🔨Built for: Instagrammers, start-ups, influencers, brands, etc. Fun fact 🙈: The Latin phrase, “E Pluribus Unum,” means “Out of many, one” which we think sums us up nicely :) Fun fact 2 🙉: “E Pluribus Unum” 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 😊 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? 😃 Cheers!

@philipkuklis Thank you for your feedback Philip! Our next build will have a tutorial on the scheduler 💃 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 😊

@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 🔎🐛 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 😉

Hey @dillonmorgan22 this is pretty cool! Any plans for being able to manage multiple Instagram accounts at once within the app?

@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!

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 won’t be jeopardized. 1) Here’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 - We’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, you’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. I’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 :)

@cc_chapman Glad to hear it :) Curious, would you rather have a web version or android version first?
