Can’t We Have More!
4K Stogram is a wonderful Instagram companion. It downloads images, videos, stories, saved posts, and highlights – which is pretty much everything!
But currently, there is no support for IGTV videos. It would have been nice. We also feel that in the future update, they should add the ability to download Instagram Reels.
Overall, 4K Stogram is a fantastic app. It does everything that it advertises well. I mean really well!
The app design is friendly and requires the next to a none learning curve. The interface feels clean, calm, and modern.
In a single click, it opens the image in Mac’s Preview. The ability to pin favorite subscriptions on top, drag and reorganize your subscription, refresh content in a click, subscribe to all accounts followed by the account you have currently subscribed to, are icing on the cake.
4K Storgram is the best way to use Instagram on a computer. Once you use this app, you will not like to go back to anything else!
