  • Notifications

    by Alaskanmofo

    I would like to receive notifications . I only use this app part time.. Because it doesn't let me know anything about comments or likes

  • Inlove with it!

    by Karliaxx


  • Love it!!!!!

    by MissAnnii

    Way better than the Instagram app itself. Just wish we could post directly from this app but either way it's amazing

  • How to get instagram on ipads

    by Super james02

    Instagram is on tablets and the way to get it is to look up instagram in the App Store then at the top to into I pad only and select I phone only and there is instagram

  • Saaaaaaaaaraaaaaaaaa jhooooon

    by I'am queen on thron

    I love the app .. very nice

  • Great app!

    by Hello124

    Great app! Perfect for browsing Instagram.

  • Almost there

    by Lebatino

    I get the concept of this and prefer it over Insta on my iPad, but it has the potential to be more streamlined.

  • Great iPad Instagram viewer


    Excellent app for viewing instagram. The only issue is not with the app but with instagram itself as the larger viewing size isn't really supported so some images get quite pixelated. Not a big deal but sometimes annoying.

  • Better than IG

    by NaQwan26

    Great App better than Instagram works best when you have a strong wifi connectivity :) would love too see the app add an multi delete feature where you can delete multi post instead of one by one

  • Very Impressed

    by Hchh

    Flawless app. Best way to view feeds and searches. At first skeptical, but now I can say it's solid.

  • love it

    by Plkjohnson

    best app for instagram viewing :)

  • Nice layout

    by YoungMojo

    I always love the looks and features of each app especially this one. I would have given 5 stars but it needs to be able to take pictures on the actual app.

  • like it

    by insta is cool

    love this app I have it on my ipad and ipod but i wish u could hold it side ways for my ipad then i will give it a 5 star rating

  • Useful. Simple

    Best viewer for Instagram on iPad. Only notifications is missing.

  • Ok

    by Imjustmylan

    Good alternative for iPad users who want to use Instagram

  • Control

    by MLangP

    This app lets me control my viewing experience far better than any others.

  • Best IG app

    by BittyCommittee

    Posibbly even better than Instagram, only flaw is not being able to upload to this app. Working with an iPad mini & it wonderful!

  • Annoying

    by Max486

    New animations on opening photos are really annoying. Please turn this off.

  • Who likes the pics

    by JLH15

    Great iPad app but the option to see who "likes" my posted pics like I can do on the iPhone

  • Um

    by La'la Michellee

    Uh you need a Instagram app . You can make a app for twitter but not for insta ? Tf

  • Approval!?

    by Max458

    Cool app, but very upsetting that you cannot download a photo or video to your camera roll without the person being notified and giving approval

  • A dud

    by Pooka555

    Very, very slow to update. Adverts block access to buttons at bottom. A dud.

  • Mejor que el propio instagram

    by Nilesoy

    Tiene utilidades que no tiene instagram como poder guardar las fotos

  • Smart Downloads? Disable button please

    by jumperchu

    Smart downloads are not a good feature. I keep having the same pictures filling up my photo gallery on my iPad and it's such a pain to delete them all over and over again, enable us to turn this trash feature off. That's all.

  • Love it

    by Jonajarro

    Great app on iPad Air!

    by Sweetdiamond

    I love that I can see all my followers on a wide screen I just wish you could post pics from it. But overall it's a good app:)))!!

  • Love it!

    by Micka

    Great app. The best way to look at Instagram on your iPad!

  • Hey, it works!

    by Billy J Fields

    Solid design. Easy to use. And the only way to use Instagram on my very old (now) iPad 2.

  • Nice

    by AW221

    Easy to use

  • Works oke, but not great

    by Dirk spijkers

    The app looks nice and the basics work. Some functions though really don't work. The photos on map function hardly finds the local pics. Only once every 40 times it picks it up, the rest of the time you get an error, which is annoying. It's also not possible to click directly at a location, when a person tagged eg a restaurant or bar. This works in the instagram app, but doesn't work in padgram

  • Like

    by RA.m.h

    I really like this app. It's so much better on the iPad than iPhone for obvious reason, bigger is easier to see. But I also like seeing more than one photo on the home page the best.

  • Popular

    by Asdfghjkgfdeeer

    The popular one is not loading pls fix other Than that I luv it

  • excellent(5star) for new Vesion

  • Yo

    by Marxer87

    Good App....... Very Viewer Friendly......Takes IG To The Next Level......

  • Love this app

    by NickWiggins

    So easy and functional :) the only thing I dislike is when scrolling through the page, it's too easy to accidentally click a post.

  • Great app

    by Curtflight

    This is a great way to get on Instagram from the iPad. It's awesome

  • missing pieces

    by zshaddix99

    I think this is a great idea since Instagram hasn't expanded to tablets, but on the main feed view it'd be nice to see how many likes each picture has without clicking on each one. it's kind of annoying. I like the tile view a lot but what's the point if you can't see how popular a picture is as you scroll? it's a nice app but it's would be so much better to add that to it.

  • Good

    by itsjakeross


  • Sweet.

    by Luzi07

    I love this app, it is pretty awesome. I enjoy seeing the pictures much bigger. :)

  • Love it

    by Mjesuscarra

    Very friendly to use

  • Awesome App

    by Pauline His Queen

    Only flaw is I don't the notifications & it doesn't allow you to post pictures :( but other than that I prefer this app over the IG app!

  • Not happy

    by Yadihdez

    It doesn't let me like or comment on pictures. It tell me I did something inappropriate. I have done nothing wrong.

  • Love padgram

    by Kaytee1212

    by xlarryx1

    Best Instagram Viewer for iPad. Love the icon too.

  • Best Instagram app for iPad

  • Padgram

    by Only1vogue

    I love it!!!

  • Ok.

    by Alovesd

    I love how easy it is to view the popular page and tag someone and stuff, but in the subscribed category (which I like much better then following) it always shows everyone has posted 0 new pics, but that isn't true. I haven't seen anyone with the same problem. I tried logging out and deleting the app. None worked PLEASE FIX!!!! If this didn't happen it would be a 5 star rating!

  • Awesome but...

    by Qwertyman826

    Interface better than original app but a pain not being able to see your own updates (like who's liking your photos and your latest followers)

  • Padgram

    by maram al amoudi

    البرنامج جداً جميل ، سهل التصفح بالاي باد وصاير على كبر الشاشة باختصار جداً عجبني

  • Works ok, but lots of errors

    by Dirk spijkers

    Nice overview, but map function hardly works. Continuous errors

  • I love this app.

    by Johnnykat84

    easy instagram app to use. i just wish you could post pictures from the app

  • Loads of emoticon fun!

    by Yhazmne

    Much more fun than regular instagram. Having both works like a charm, and I use "cropic" app for videos. Very happy with my trio. Padgram's real good!

  • Way better than IG's own app!!!

    by SyhLeX

    This is quite literally the best app for Instagram! It has more features than the standard Instagram, and optimizes lesser known features. I had no idea IG tracked my likes and with this I can scroll a board dedicated to that finding and sharing said likes to twitter, Facebook, airdrop, or my camera roll. It is way fluid, and adds an awesome way to discover IG with dedicated sections to filter generalized topics. With the search tool, you can get more specific with your search people/hashtags and subscribe to them for future updates.

  • Great

    by Busterboy65

    This is a great app for my ipad

  • Better than Instagram!

  • Excelente App

    by Wilfry

    Excelente app muy bien integrada a la aplicación original

  • Great

    by Jfriel98

    Love it. As good if not better than Instagram itself.

  • A Must-have for Ipad owners

    by Weztinn

    This is a really great use of Instagram, the only downside is that you cannot post directly from this app you will need to additionally download the actual Instagram app for iPhone to execute that. The display of the photos posted is fairly large but it does not take up the whole screen, and you can easily browse the categories if that is of interest to you. You can also subscribe to a specific hashtag that you may like. You can make comments and like photos but you cannot edit your profile on this specific app. It is so convenient, in fact that even the process of writing a comment is easier than it would be because you can choose what Emoji you want without having to change your keyboard.

  • Good Apple

    by J03y92

    works good

  • Best Instagram App for IPad

  • Outstanding!

    by Ramos1214

    Great product!

  • My go-to app...

    by fhiatldeaurcz

    than Instagram. The pictures can be viewed on a much bigger resolution but not all the pictures you view will be of great quality (which is depending on the person posting the pic). I love the layout of the news feed. The developers did a great job in everything, especially how much easier it is to tag a person in a comment. I only took off one star because I don't get notifications. That's the only bummer. If I could, though, I would give them a 4.5 rating not just a 4.

  • Great app for IG fans

    by Chloe BJ

    I love this app apart from not having a list of notifications of your latest comments and likes (for which I still need to refer to my phone). It makes manoeuvring through photos really quick and easy, especially if you are following a lot. Plus seeing pictures in a larger view compared to the phone is a much-appreciated feature.

  • Best

    by Joselopr

    The best app in ipad for view instagram, i love it

  • Notifications.

    by WoahMoo.

    Need to be able to access notifications, but besides that it is great.

  • Update??

    by cristian rayo

    Since the update was created it started going slow.

  • Great but...

    by Jaclyn Lloyd

    I would love to have the ability to post pictures...otherwise, it's wonderful!!
