  • (2021-12-07) REN SAIKA: また、STORYがダウンロードできなくなりました。 今回は写真も動画もです。おそらくインスタ側が何かしたのしょう。 対応をお願いします。 2021.12.07・追記 タイムライン上からだと画像も動画も落とせなくなりました。 STORYも動画も画像も落とせなくなっています。 ただ、落としたい人のページにいってからだと、動画も画像も落とせるようになります。 ですが、STORYだけはタイムライン上と同じく動画も画像も落とせないです。 修正をお願いしたいです。

  • (2021-07-27) 白㿟柏: 好像已经用不了了

  • (2021-05-27) Android User: What does it access Facebook for?
  • (2021-05-22) Don Gillette: Used to be great until the update. Now videos do not download until you leave the instagram site and if you've clicked the icon more than once, you'll get multiple downloads but you won't know for a few minutes.
  • (2021-05-21) REN SAIKA: ずっとWATERFOX & CHROMEで使ってきているけど、アップデートの度に新しい利用許諾が必要な追加が起きていて、不自然さを感じるようになった。 度々、ダウンロード不可になる事も増えたし、最近ではアイコンをクリックしてからダウンロード開始までのラグがありすぎる、特にMOVIEやIGなどは。 なので、評価は5STARから2STARに下げます。一応もう少し利用はしてみようと思うけど。 WATERFOXなどFIREFOX系はINSTAGRAM関連の良い拡張機能は粗無いので、やむなしでもこの拡張機能のFOX版を使うと思う。

  • (2021-05-29, v:1.18.4) Charlie Philip: Instagram Issues with the app
    Instagram is blocking for pishing the accounts using this app. The app probably must be updated to avoid instagram blocks accounts using this app. Instagram unblocks account after the app is removed. The issue is known and discussed on downdetector.

  • (2021-05-21, v:1.18.1) Lisa Jones: No longer downloads anything when clicking on icon
    Hi, No longer downloads anything when clicking on icon...Been like that for a few weeks now.

Thank you

  • (2020-12-19, v:1.17.0) RevenkoGaming!: There's a problem with your app, just to let you know.. ^_^"
    Hi, I just wanted to let you know that your app doesn't download videos anymore from IG, I tried to download a video of something I uploaded earlier and had forgotten to back up beforehand only to then get the error on the download saying "Failed - Network error", my internet connection is perfectly fine, I tried it on a picture and it downloaded perfectly but videos aren't, not sure why that is but as I had said in the subject header, I had just wanted to let you know so you can hopefully fix this issue! ^_^ .. Thanks a lot for taking the time to make such a wonderfully useful app, I'm sure I'm not the only person out there who has thanked you, if I am then, then thanks, your app makes it easier for me to transfer stuff from my main IG to my secondary one when I need to re-upload something! ^_^ .. Anyway, no idea if you will reply back, if you even can so either way, I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas (If you celebrate it that is, if you don't then I apologise for that as I don't want to offend you!) and a very Happy New Year for when it arrives to you and all of your family and loved ones! Take care and stay safe, kind regards from Scotland, UK.. n_n ..

  • (2020-07-27, v:1.16.0) Lenin Zapata: filename with username
    Hello, months ago I asked about the characteristic that when the photo is downloaded, the username is concatenated. When will you add this feature? example: username_116264364_637088657162070_4933160943574320119_n.jpg
  • (2020-06-10, v:1.16.0) Michael Sankey: Username not displayed in filename
    Fantastic app! Recently I noticed that with downloaded files the username no longer shows up in the file name, its just the numbers. It's very handy for sorting to be able to know which page a picture was downloaded from. This seems to have changed only in the last few days. Thank you.

  • (2020-03-06, v:1.15.0) Dirk Reul: download button no longer shows on posts and in stories, can be reproduced on two different devices.
    the download symbol is no longer visible, hence no downloads for posts (images, videos) or stories since the layout change with the stories being larger on the top instead of on the side.
  • (2020-02-21, v:1.14.0) WowSabrosa2: Filename of downloaded stories
    Downloaded stories are saved with the name of the album. (My version installed is: 1.14.0) Is it a new ''change''? Can you fix it? Can you add an option to let me save files with or without original uploader (instagram profile/user) name? Thank You.
  • (2020-02-19, v:1.13.0) zhangzhiquan: Filename of downloaded picture changed after win10 updated to 1909
    This is the best ig downloader ever used. But after win10 updated to 1909, the filename of downloaded picture changed, the prefix was missed, it was username of the picture uploader before. Can you fix this?

  • (2020-01-24, v:1.12.0) Lenin Zapata: Rename
    Hello, could you concatenate the name of the user who is downloading the photo ?, because sometimes you need to know where that photo is from and it would be great if the username is the first string and then the numbers, please add this feature.

    Why doesn't it download videos anymore? This was a useful feature. Thanks
  • (2019-10-10, v:1.10.1) Dirk Reul: Videos in posts are no longer downloaded.
    Since today, clicking on the download button in a post containing a video, just tries to download a blob and that fails. This can be reproduced at will. For example: https://www.instagram.com/p/B3KS9uMB20Z/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  • (2019-06-29, v:1.9.7) Evan Alexander: Multiple links?
    What would it take to download multiple Instagram photos/videos just by pasting in a bunch of links? For example, let's say I have 200 links. I would love to be able to just paste 200 links into a text box and have them all downloaded.
  • (2019-06-09, v:1.9.7) Tosik Sitko: File name in Chrome version
    File name in Chrome version Yo! Could you add username? 1.File name: You probably get this a lot but when I first starting using the extension the downloaded file would have the user name first which made searching very easy and I liked it but without changing any settings now it's just the server name. Any explanation or possible fix I can do one my end? Otherwise it's an amazing extension 2.About file name: Thank you for good apps. Firefox version of IG helper add target account name to top of the saving file name. But Chrome version doesn't. I want the same function for Chrome.
