Instagram is the new popular platform. Millennials are shifting from Facebook, but they still love Instagram. It’s a visual medium and brands naturally want to be part of it.

But Instagram is cool about it. Instagram is like, whatever dude.

For you, the social media marketer who was told “we need an Instagram presence”, everything is not chill. To manage more than one account, you have to log out and log in again. This can get painful fast.

If you’re on Android, we’ve got a solution to ease your pain. Using an app called Instwogram, you can run an additional Instagram account on your device (the first one being the official Instagram app).

How to Install Instwogram

Instwogram is not available on the Play Store (it lets you do something Instagram doesn’t approve of). But thanks to Android’s open nature and a clever developer, you can run it. Instwogram clones the Instagram app and bypasses the Android limitation that you can’t run two instances of the same app. Literally everything in the app is the same. This also means that the Instwogram app itself is stable and familiar to use.

Before installing the app, enable app installs from unknown sources. Go to Settings -> Security and enable Unknown sources. More on that here.

Setting Up and Using Instwogram

When you launch the app, you’ll see the sign up or login screen for Instagram.

If you already have an account, log in or sign up. Now you’re free to upload pictures, videos, comment on posts, like them, and more.

Instwogram Can Do Even More

This part is specifically for Android pro users and is purely an add-on. If you’re rooted and have Xposed installed, you can download an add-on called Instwogram Downloader from Xposed. This add-on allows you to download photos and videos from Instagram.

We’ve already told you how to do this, both the easy and hard way (using Xposed).

How Are You Going to Use Multiple Instagram Accounts?

Are you a social media manager planning to use Instwogram for client accounts or your personal accounts?

Do you wish there was Instthreegram or Insfourgarm? Will two accounts be enough, or will you constantly sign in and out of Instwogram?
