If you're a fan of Instagram, you probably have the application on your smartphone and use it on a regular basis, but you might want a similar way to access the service from your PC.
Fortunately, you can turn to third-party applications such as Websta for Instagram that can help you achieve quick, convenient results in the situation depicted above.
The app is actually a Chrome extension, so it goes without saying that you need to install the host browser before attempting to deploy or run Websta for Instagram.
You simply need to navigate to the product's page and hit the "Add to Chrome" button, since the rest of the process unfolds automatically, without any additional help.
You can turn to this app if you want a quick, seamless manner to access your Instagram account and your friends' contents directly from your computer, without having to use your phone.
After you successfully set it up, you will be prompted to log in or create an account. During our testing, we couldn't create a new account from the application. The app prompted us with an error after submitting the registration form and informed us that the username was already in use after trying to re-submit it. However, no account was ever created.
Websta for Instagram tries to bring you as close to the original Instagram scrolling experience (the one on your phone), as it fashions a slim, tall window, where you can scroll down your friends' feeds easily.
It is also possible to perform searches, access an "Incognito" mode, set the window to always remain on top, switch an "Autostart" toggle that makes the extension start when you launch your browser and view your profile. Furthermore, you can also access the "Messenger" function of Facebook by clicking the dedicated button in the top-right corner of the window.
All in all, Websta for Instagram is a handy tool that lets you access your Instagram account and perform all sorts of actions that are related to this activity such as viewing your friends' photos, browsing your profile or searching for entries. It comes with a user-friendly interface, lets you access Facebook Messenger in an instant and, apparently, can't be used to create new Instagram accounts.
