5 Best Tools/Apps Which Will Help You To Schedule Your Instagram Posts
Before we move on we want to clarify the tools and apps we are going to suggest here are not like the other social media management tools like Buffer, ViralTag, Hootsuite, Later etc. These tools can also schedule your Instagram posts but they will not post on behalf of you. They will just notify you when the time arrives for the scheduled post. So these tools and apps are those ones who will automatically post your scheduled photos on Instagram without even bothering you.
Onlypult is one of the fantastic tools for scheduling your Instagram posts. It just not lets you schedule your Insta posts but also keeps track of your posts as well.

This is a new tool for scheduling your posts on Instagram but it works like any other scheduling tools which are there for quite some time. The best part of this tool is that it also has the Android and iOS apps. So what you can do is to take up an image from the computer and crop it, add a filter and then schedule it for a later date. This tool also lets you schedule the deletion of any of your post, which means that your older marketing campaigns do not take over the newer ones. The additional advantage of this tool is that it also lets you add your Twitter and Pinterest so you can share your Instagram posts on those two social media platforms as well. If your Insta account is having less than 1000 followers then the scheduling on this tool is absolutely free, but if you have a larger account than you will get 7 days free trial and then the monthly subscription will start at $4.99 per month.

If you are looking for an app with such features then Crowdfire is your answer. The app will let you know popular hashtags as well so your post can reach a maximum number of people on Instagram. There is one drawback as well, this tool doesn’t allow you to edit your picture which is common in other tools but instead it provides you Whitelist and Blacklist feature. These lists only mean that what kind of people you want to follow or never follow. This tool will also let you know which people you have followed and they haven’t followed you back and also it keeps tracks of recent followers and unfollowers. However, this tool seems to be made for a personal use but with the multi-user support, it makes more viable as well. But there is another catch in that too. The multi-user support is only for the paid users. The monthly subscription for this tool starts at $9.99 per month.
