Instagram is currently the best social app. More than a billion users use it for many purposes. Some use it to share their photos & happy moments with their friends & family while others use it for entertainment purposes like watching funny videos & memes just like me. That’s not all. There are millions of pages you can follow for getting news & info about nature, lifestyle, fashion, education, science, AI, actors, singers, etc., etc., etc.
Chat with friends, video calling with them, share memes, go live for your followers, upload stories & show your inner artist in reels. Instagram is for everyone. But there’s a popular saying,” No one is perfect.”, Instagram, too, is not perfect. There are ads, suggested friends’ sections, media compression, no download option and no seek functionality in videos. That’s why we have Instander APK for you.

Features Explanation of Instander APK
As we listed out all the features of the Instander, maybe you understand all the features what they are for or maybe you don’t. So, we explain all the features in the following sub-sections:
Download Any Photos & Videos
How many groups, pages & accounts are there on Insta? Millions, right? We follow pages for many reasons like funny videos, memes, natural mind-blowing scenes, creatures, arts, etc. And we come across many stunning posts that leave a good impression on us. We want to download it but Instagram doesn’t have that option. That’s why to eliminate this limitation, Instander gives this amazing downloading feature. You can download any photo & video with a single tap. You will see a download icon at the bottom of the post. Just tap it and done, media downloaded.
Split Media Saving
It’s another great feature of this MOD after the downloading. You can set the download location where you want to save the downloaded media. Additionally, you can also enable the “Split Media Saving” option that will automatically create folders of each page, group & user in that location and will save the downloaded media only in their folder. So, you can easily navigate to any media by their username. It will avoid media mixing of all accounts.
In the Ghost mode, no one can know if you are online on Insta, watching their live streaming, or have seen their stories or messages. I don’t want to be seen online by my family members and some of my friends. And I also get curious sometimes about what they uploaded on their story, what they are live streaming, and what they send me in DM. In these cases, ghost mode helps me a lot and will help you too. It will hide the read status of messages and stories. There will be no typing status. So, you can freely use Instagram.
Share Posts & Stories with Close Friends
Some posts can only be shared with selected friends. There can be many reasons for that such as dark, inside jokes, adult memes, etc. “Close friends” is the best feature for these purposes. You can add selected friends to the “Close Friends” list. Then whenever you upload a post or story, you will get the option to share it with everyone or only close friends. This way, you don’t have to select friends one by one to share any post. Save Time, Pal!
Scrolling reels, memes, beautiful pics of a friend, and then “Spotify – Play Now”, “Best Shirts, Shoes, This & That – Shop Now”. Yup, Ads. Who wants to watch ads when we want entertainment? Don’t worry. Go in Instagram Settings >> Privacy >> Disable Ads. And then watch memes non-stop, watch amazing videos non-stop, without any interruption of any advertisement.
Enable/Disable Analytics & Crash Reports
Analytics collects data information from your in-app activities to analyze it. It helps in providing you a better experience by showing posts that you may like depending on your activities. You can also disable it if you don’t want the app to analyze your activity. There are also crash reports that you can opt-in/out of. If you enable it, it will send the crash reports to the developer team to help them to fix the bugs & improve the app.
Quality Improvements by Disabling Compression
Whenever you upload a photo or video on the official Instagram, it automatically compresses the pic & video and reduces it to lower size & resolution that results in low quality. In the Instander APK, you can enable quality improvements for stories, reels, IGTV & photos. You can also disable the cropping of pic while posting.
Gestures for Quick Navigations &
Easily & quickly navigation to other tabs is demanded in any app. This mod supports gestures. Swipe left & right to easily navigate to other tabs. It saves time and is more user-friendly than tapping the tab buttons. You also get additional gestures. In the official version, you have to pinch out the pic to zoom in and as you remove the finger, the pic returns to normal. Long tapping on a photo in this MOD will open it in a pop-up window. You can zoom it in this window. The pic will not return to normal until you press the back button. You can also seek to any time in the video by long-tapping it & then swiping left & right.
Additional Feed & Stories Settings
Whenever you open Instagram, you have to tap on the video & reel to turn on the sound. You have to start the IGTV videos manually after few seconds. It also shows you a section of suggested friends between posts. If you don’t like these things on Instagram, then Instander is the best Instagram MOD. You can enable auto-play video with sound. It will automatically play all videos and the sound will be on too. You don’t have to do anything extra. You can also disable the suggested friends’ section in it.
Hide Watched Posts
“Scroll down, I have seen this post. Huh, this one too. Swipe, Swipe.” Is it happening with you too? Turn “Hide Seen Posts” on. With this feature, Instander will not show you any post that you have already seen before. It’s a very helpful feature.
