We have everything ready (code-wise). Once Facebook makes the new Instagram API available to everyone (currently in closed beta), you will be able to schedule your Instagram posts with Publer! :)
Any update on this? Also would it be the proper Instagram posting where you do not need to go onto your phone to post and just autoposts from when you schedule?
We’re waiting on Facebook’s F8 Conference next month. They usually announce big changes during this event. If not, we will then start working on a non-API solution.
Hows it going with this?
F8 conference is on April 30 - May 1. We will know more around / after these dates.
While Facebook did announce some interesting updates to their family of apps (we will make a recap on our blog soon), unfortunately they didn’t mention anything regarding the Instagram API (still in closed beta with their partners) or their partnership program (still not accepting new partners).
With that being said, we have no choice but to start working on a non-API solution, i.e. using your Instagram credentials (email & password) on the official Instagram app on cloud Android phones.
This is a very challenging & costly solution, therefore it will be available only to paying customers (both paid plans).
There will also be a slight increase in prices for NEW PAYING CUSTOMERS once Publer for Instagram goes live.
Our policy is simple:
You will always pay what you signed up for regardless of our operational costs or how many new features we add. We hate companies that increase prices for their existing subscribers. That is not how you value loyalty!
More info in the upcoming days.
