We all know the biggest issue is the fact that we are unable to upload directly to Instagram online. It’s irritating that you’re limited to using your phone every time you wish to upload.
We all know that feeling when you find that picture you love on Facebook or on your desktop and you wish to upload it to Instagram. But then you think about having to connect your phone to your computer, then send that image to your phone, edit it, then upload it. Every. Single. Time.
Those days are finally over! All thanks to Vladimir Fedin, a 17-year-old guy from Saratov, Russia. We reached out to him for a short interview which he gladly accepted to do. You can find it later on in the post.
The app he created imitates Instagram but on your pc. Yes, this includes the ability to directly upload to Instagram online!
How to Install the App
- Go to the app in the Chrome Web Store
- Install it
- Hit “Launch App”

Why’d you decide to create this app?
Instagram is powerful service for people from around the world. It’s an awesome idea when you can share moments of your life with friends. Instagram has mobile applications for Android, iOS and Windows Phone, but doesn’t have desktop app. The site functionality is severely limited. So I decided to create a desktop app for Chrome, because it can run cross-platform apps 🙂
Where’d you learn how to develop apps?
How long did it take you to complete the release version of the app?
The first version was released in 2014, I started writing when I was 15 years old. It was Beta release. In 2015 I added photo uploader in my app. Now everyone can send for free photos in Instagram from your computer.
This is a very important feature for photographers to upload their photos to Instagram.
Are you working on any other projects?
Now I don’t have much time, but I working on Android apps and learn Java, Swift and Node.js.
I strongly recommend this app. It’s free and there are no ads. The app functions based on completely optional donations to the developer. The extremely usefulness of this app gives it a serious boost in ratings and recommendations. It’s very clean and runs smoothly. It’s the only app that facilitates the ability to upload to Instagram online.
Don’t forget to rate the app below.
