'Could be better.'

'But! I really love how there is an app like this because I communicate with many of my friends on Instagram because it’s
quicker when you have a friend with a different brand device. I love the UI design! It’s so clean and fun. The messages send
quite fast, and faster with videos than it would

'Keep it SEPARATE from insta!!'

'3 stars for execution—a lot of weird usability issues and the groups thing is really confusing.\nBut 5 stars for the value prop
of this app. I use it to break away from Instagram (bc I have an unhealthy excessive usage of IG) while still chatting with my
friends. This alone is worth it for me.'

'Only chats'

'Awesome cus I detest social media but still love keeping in touch with friends on insta therefore this app is just perfect. No
need to have insta installed.\n\nOne problem - You can only share stories with your “best friends” or whatever that’s

'Open up to all friends!'

'This app would be absolutely incredible if you allowed us to post to our public stories and not just close friends. A lot of us
want to enjoy stories without seeing the Instagram feed of likes, comments, and forced aesthetics. Please open this up to all

'I guess I’m always “in the wild”'

'The app is amazing, but it always auto-sets my status to “In The Wild” I’ve uninstalled and tried it on other phones, but
it always says that. Idk what’s up with that.'

'Life Less Destracted'

'I acknowledge there are some limitations to this app but in essence it keeps me from scrolling through Instagram wether it\'s my
feed or stories. This is taking a fundamental aspect of Instagram and keeping it separate. I\'ve put mostly all of my folks on my
close friends lists except for employers

'love it!'

'just would prefer not having the camera pop up EVERY single time i open the app, very annoying and that’s why i took one star
off. Besides that, great app, really smooth, and helps to continue communicating with friends when I delete instagram due to it
being so addicting :)'

'I got this app to keep up with friends thru insta without getting distracted with the explore page (trying to use social media
less). It’s mostly good, except sometimes when u send photos with text, the text disappears from the pic u sent, so it looks
like u just sent a photo with no purpose. Kin

'While this app from instagram may have many features similar to Snapchat, it would be nice if they merged this app into

that after trying to text people, I’m still st

'Great but bugs notifications'

'I like the whole idea of it, but firstly, i don\'t think it needs to be a separate app, and secondly, it bugs out the
notifications. I didn\'t get any notifications while it was installed, and after reinstalling instagram it went back to normal.
Can you please fix this?'

'The haptic feedback is annoying. It’s ALWAYS vibrating with every click and movement I do on this app. Please add an option to
remove haptic vibration! Too many bugs on this app, Plus why are only Close Friends available? All DM’s on the app would be more
favorable. Also it would be fun if we c

'great idea for someone who needs to communicate with others via Instagram but don’t want to tempt themselves to scroll for an
hour on it every time they need to talk to someone. One major flaw however is that i can ONLY talk to close friends.. so all my
important group chats do not show up on her

'App Crashes While Using Filters.'

'It’s definitely the best app to connect to your best friends. Even better than other apps I should say. But I have trouble
dealing with filters, whenever I click a picture on any one the filters the app crashes and even the picture it clicks moves the
focus and captures something else. It’s gon

'Cool, but pointless as a separate platform'

'A lot of the features and design on this app are dope, but why does it need to be its own app? And why does it work only with
close friends? I’d love to see things like customizable status, themes, or cameras come to Instagram. For Christ’s sake just
make it an update.'
