Twice in the last month, Instagram has disabled my account with threat of permanent disablement within 30 days with no explanation. To re-enable the account, you have to go through a mysterious black box process, and if it fails, you lose access to all of your photos forever with no recourse. If you use this app, back up your images to another service or you could lose everything for no discernible reason with no warning.
Constantly freezes after opening and this can last for hours. It seems to load the feed as normal, but inaccessible, freezes immediately and asks to close or wait or report. They seem to be comfortable with being a third rate hokey app. Poor design, poor functionality, lots of bugs. Just a very cheap feel. It's like a people-walmart. Previous: Get your clown app sorted out, insta. It doesn't even work now. Mostly I don't care because it is a clown app. But I dont like when things don't work.
So many bugs! I recently switched to Android and am surprised on how many glitches there are. Certain features appear and disappear when trying to post a story or reel, when you scroll past a reel or video it doesn't start over when you go back, so you have to wait for the whole thing to play before it loops again. Sometimes it freezes, I can't go back to my feed from the chats. You can't comment with gifs, yet it's clear other people can? I've never had problems like this with IG on the iPhone
Bug alert ... after editing a number pics, after I post, the pictures I've worked on realign with big random white spaces to the left or right of the images ... but only after I post. It's impossible to fix. Plus it sends the same images to other social media, meaning to correct it, I have to log into multiple accounts, delete what's there, and start all over again... and it does this on two different devices meaning its not just my phone
More in the last 6-8 months than ever before. I just tried 4 times to upload photos, and they revert back after I adjust them, I can't position them the way I want, and some move to the side and leave a big black space in the square. I've also moved to the next screen to see if they come through okay anyway, and the photos turn sideways and are all warped. It's a bummer.
Each of my accounts on one device has a different layout. One has no reels at all; none in the discovery, and I can't scroll through reels on a page, I have to click them individually. I'm sure this is a test but I'm not a fan. I do like that the reels portal was moved from the middle of the bottom bar, it has kept me from jumping right into scrolling when I log on. But I would like to be able to navigate reels on pages easier and have them come up on my discovery.
I updated Instagram thinking it would fix my problem with reels. Unfortunately, that is not the case and I no longer have reels available. I cannot view reels normally. Instead it is similar to watching a video where you have to click on an off in order to view the next video. This is not the first time my Instagram has been bugged like this, but the other times it was reported. Nothing happened.
Full of all kinds of bugs lately. Portrait photo going into a landscape multiple photo post stretches and ruins the portrait photo. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times and no success. This was never a problem in the past. Sometimes clicking the next arrow for a post doesn't take you to the next page. Photos while making a post will go all black when trying to move the ordering around. Making posting really time consuming.
Last update has a bug which doesn't allow me to copy text from within messages. I'm using an Android phone. S22 Ultra with the 3 button navigation option instead of gestures. The copy option appears at the same level as the 3 buttons making it impossible to tap and select. Can you ask your programmers to program stuff during the day and not at night when they're all tired and overworked. Sort it out. Stop tinkering around with stuff that's already been working well.
This app gets worse and worse. First I couldn't use the tilt shift, which stopped working over a year ago and hasn't been fixed despite multiple reports. Then I had issues when I tried to edit multiple photos on a single post -- each photo would revert to its original dimensions when I tried to adjust one of the other photos. Add onto that the incessant ads, the pushing for video content and reels, and the fixation on competition with TikTok, and frankly it is no wonder I use this app less.
Lately, I've had an issue with chats and getting notifications from them. I have to close my app and open it every time, and I never know when I got a message back from someone because I'm not notified. I checked, and my notifications are on, but nothing is working. Along with that, whenever I try to post photos, they get cropped weirdly and some black/white bar appears on the side and crops out some of the picture. Please fix this.
Please fix this. I've been experiencing whenever I edit photos before I upload, the crop feature is very bugged out and the other photos are also affected. Because of this, the filters are also affected hence my photos are in low quality. Please fix it! It's annoying and this has been happening many times now. Also, STOP putting the buttons in different locations. I saw what you did about switching places of Reels and Notifications. Just stop. Nobody cares about it. TikTok already exist.
The New Update is causing Odd Behavior When Posting more than one photo... a little space appears to the side of one of the photos and, when adjusted to fit the frame, it seems to push to a separate photo. This can be very frustrating, especially when needing to promote a small business. Any help is appreciated!
Instagram is great, it's a good app for pictures and there's a wide variety of filters to choose from. Messaging is also quite neat. But there is just one problem I have with the app, it's the fact that all my pictures turn into gifs D: I can't send them to anyone outside of ig which is so annoying, please fix this it's been going on for so long
Works well but there is one minor bug that needs to get fixed because after long periods of time it does get frustrating. On my Samsung device, I use hiding button navigation. Basically, I am able to turn on button navigation so it stays on either all the time or can turn off for full screen viewing of apps. When I hide that navigation bar, a cut out of that area still remains on the bottom of the screen when I am on Instagram. Please fix this annoying bug.
I actually love instagram because I love having just pictures to scroll through. BUT the editing and picture uploading has been a nightmare in recent years and has progressively gotten worse. Lately, when I try to do portrait or landscape pictures, it distorts them into a square and makes them either look stretched or they won't stay in the same position I put them in. It's so frustrating!! I wish it could go back to working correctly!
I love it to keep in touch with family across the states, without the drama of a larger platform. But every single time I attempt to log in, I get an "unexpected error" message. It is NOT my mobile (Android) connection as it happens while connected to wifi as well. It is ONLY with Instagram. After 6+ frustrating attempts, only then will it let me into my account. Or after I uninstall/reinstall.
Normally I can deal with the bugs that are on this app, but considering I can't post more than one photo at a time without it completely distorting any of the images I don't even want to use the app. This is a photo sharing app. It shouldn't be distorting my images when I post more than one. I am also having issues with my dms. Not always showing up / My messages not sending even though everything else works and my internet connection is not the issue
The application is nice and all but I have had a problem with this bug that's been there for sometime. It's also there in older versions. The dark mode glitches and mixes in with the light mode and it's extremely irritating because the words are white(when in dark mode) so when the background randomly switches to light mode, you can't see a thing. I don't know if it's just me but it happens a lot. You'd think it'd be fixed on the latest version of the app but it's still there.
This app is nearly unusable now. If I attempt to crop photos, especially if I am posting multiple photos at once, the crop will move after I complete the edit. This often leaves the photo partially out of frame. Even if a post appears to be successful, hours or days later, it suddenly has a white bar along an edge as if the crop were bad. It has only been the past few months that these problems appeared, but they are serious. Get your act together Instagram.
