Review by Claysul

works just fine - does what it says, first tab is your news feed, next one is the most popular, third one is your profile, next one is the photos you "liked", and last option is a search bar. You can like, comment, and even type out emojis on here through your mac (along with being able to see them from others as well). It's simple. and does everything a regular instagram on your phone can do. The only thing it cannot do is upload photos.

Review by Hunter Fiuzat

Uncertain - Its great and easy to use. Nice to not have to have my iPhone for instagram, but the recent version wont load any media... That needs to get fixed asap and then it would be worth 5 stars. You can see your profile, look at others, follow, unfollow, search through hashtags... It like instagram on your mac and works for older macs as well...
