We all love sharing our life moments with our friends and families. While there are many ways to do that, Instagram is one of those. Facebook, which acquired Instagram for $1bn (£758m) in 2012, has brought many good as well as bad updates to the App. There were various updates like Instagram stories, Messaging, zooming into pictures, Snapchat like filters and lot more. But there are few features like zooming profile picture, url support, download images/videos or stories, that might not make to the final App ever! If you’re familiar with WhatsApp Plus (GBWhatsApp), we have a new feature rich Instagram mod i.e GBInstagram.
As every app is not perfect, there are few users requests that could make the app near perfect. While scrolling through our social media accounts, we come across some really mesmerizing or some really funny photos or videos that you wanted to show to your “not so active” social media friend. But social media sites don’t allow downloading because of their policies and prevent reusing. But not any more; “GBInstagram is all that you ever asked from Instagram’s Official App”

You feel like, this app needs to have more colors. So, GB Instagram has got you covered.
Use 2 Instagram Accounts
Just like WhatsApp, you’re restricted to use only 1 Instagram account at a time. If you’re page manager or operate multiple accounts, this might get frustrating as you need to sign in and sign out everytime. Why this happens? Android apps are saved as “package name” in the system. If you install something with a package name similar to something which is already present in the system, you’ll get installation failed error. Now, GBInstagram has 2 packages. One with the original Instagram package name and one as GBInstagram Plus package. This allows you to run 2 Instagram Apps without using any other apps like Parallel space.
