Review: Saver for Instagram PRO (UWP)
Instagram, for a service that's not officially supported under Windows 10 Mobile anymore, is actually quite well represented. Winsta UWP is a nice general client that lets you post and interact with others, but it has a few functionality gaps, not least being able to see posted images in original detail and not being able to save media to your phone. Enter Saver for Instagram PRO, also a UWP for all Windows 10 devices, and which offers a different Instagram feature set, see the review here.
As the name implies, the core feature here is being able to 'save', i.e. download media to your phone. So you see a lovely image and you'd like to share it (with attribution) on another platform or put it to some use (wallpaper, perhaps). This is all done very well, though you do get a few creation options too, with a basic media posting dialog and with the ability to 'like' the posts of others. But it's really all about the downloading.
All very slick and reliable, this seems impeccably implemented - what Saver claims to do it does very well and with no issues. It should be noted that Saver for Instagram PRO is a commercial application, currently a couple of pounds in the UK Microsoft Store - there's no trial or free version. Which is partly why I bought it to review it here for you. It's a high quality bit of code though and I like to think that sale proceeds go towards the developer fixing bugs and creating new titles - good programmers are always worth supporting.
The application is skewed so far towards media 'saving' that if you're a heavy Instagram user then you'll also need to buy Winsta, since the applications are more complementary than duplicating each other. Of course, what one really wants is the features of both this and Winsta all in the one application. And this is up to the developers to compare notes, I suspect!
