Thank you for all of the support so far and to those who've told me, "You should really post this on Product Hunt." I built this tool from the ground up for myself initially, but decided to release it for the public to enjoy. It's helped me immensely in finding highly-engaged content to repost on Instagram, but certainly there are other use cases for this tool. Main features: - Download an Instagram post by URL (nothing new here) - Download posts by username or hashtag (this is pretty nifty πŸ±β€πŸ‘€) - Sort posts by likes, comments, and/or date - or even filter based on if a certain hashtag was used. - Download post data to excel - Download posts to a zip file (I automatically change the hash of each file so they're safe for reposting!) => Please comment if you have any ideas on how to make this better. I'm improving the tool literally every day. It's amazing how far it's come in such little time. All feedback is welcomed! ****************************** NOTE: I personally hate Product Hunt launches that are only for paid products. Vurku has a forever free tier that is good to use for most use cases (you can also test it out without having to sign up at all). I also created a PRO version for those that need the extra features / usage and see the benefit of paying in order to save a ton of time. I'm giving everyone a 20% off discount (recurring for life) to welcome in the Product Hunt launch. Use code "PRODUCTHUNT" to redeem.

@kraftykyle Literally does everything it says on the tin - and more - safely - and Kyle (I'm a sneaky person I'll admit; I play ignorant... to find out if somebody is trustworthy) - I'd vouch for Kyle any day of the week, Twice on a Sunday 😁

Kyle knows how to take care of his products and his customers.

Pros:

Quick, clean and seamless. Highly recommend to anyone!

Cons:

If I could change one thing, I'd have a batch of 250 posts download as one zip file of 250 vs 10 of 25, but I understand why it is this way.

@ieatsalot Thanks! Yea usually sites only download single images which I found quite restrictive. This tool is especially useful to download multiple images and even sort through the posts after you search for them. Cheers!

Useful for those that want to backup their IG photos but does this break their TOS, @kraftykyle?

@rrhoover, great question! I specifically made this tool because I didn't want to use one of those automated bots people use to follow/unfollow people that are clearly against Instagram's terms of service. The honest answer is that scraping is a bit of a gray area. I can say this: your account cannot get banned from using Vurku (unlike other automated bots as listed above). Also, Instagram cannot know that your account is using Vurku since you do not sign into your account nor do we integrate with their API in any way. I hope that helps!

@rrhoover @kraftykyle I 100% back this - and Kyle is right to be honest, it IS a grey area - BUT - there is NOTHING that contravenes IG's terms with Verku with regard to how it connects (or rather, doesn't) and how it operates.... but IG being IG (facebook) - we have to contemplate grey areas because they have the financial clout to spray paint grey with green to the heart's content πŸ˜‚
