Instagram Now Allows Users to Post From Desktop

Instagram still doesn't offer an app for the iPad, but the social networking company has expanded how users can upload content to the site, allowing for pictures to be posted from the desktop.

According to TechCrunch, Instagram is rolling out desktop posting support this week after testing the feature with a limited number of users over the summer.

Sharing a photo or a video under one minute on Instagram from the desktop can be done by navigating to the Instagram website and signing into an account. From there, click on the "+" button in the top right corner of the webpage and select photos from your computer. Filters, captions, and location tags can be added.

The desktop posting feature is still rolling out, so not all users will see it right away.

iPads have been out for over a decade now; the fact that IG can't be bothered to make an iPad tailored app is unreal. Like, wtf?

Awesome! Deleted the App immediately and didn’t accept any but technical cookies in private mode.

You can barely tell it is not the App. In fact, it is much better, removing the stupid shopping tab AND NO ADS!

Finally. I do not want every damn app on my phone. Some things are best left logged out, to be logged in only when needed - like it used to be in the past before this man graduated from a university to rape the privacy of the world.
