vu

Dead simple Instagram client for Mac

4.4/5
About

I made this little status bar app to have basic Instagram experience on my Mac. I know there was a couple of very similar apps presented before but I made it more robust and polished. vu supports multiple accounts and can upload photos directly from built-in camera.

Yes, now you can take selfie on your Mac and post it to Instagram instantly. 👌🏻

    Pros: 

    Can view and post to Instagram right from Mac's menu bar. Basically a mobile website ported as a Mac app.

    Cons: 

    No interesting features like messages or stories, but Vu is not to be blamed. Instagram does not open up API to others. Poster is similar.

    I've been using Poster all these days to see Instagram posts and post on Instagram. I guess Vu is the same as Poster. I wish Instagram opens development for third-party developers and makes it possible to build more robust apps.

    Pros: 

    First Instagram app for Mac that allow to post from Desktop

    Cons: 

    Always asks to install official app, even if I already have one

    I've been searching an instagram app allowing to post from Desctop for rather long time. Most of them either can't do it at all or do it in some strange manner. This one works as I expect! Thx guys!
