How can the Instagram app be improved?

allow a photo to be posted to Instagram from your Hootsuite account

It seems silly that we can use the Hootsuite interface to interact with Instagram, but not post the one photo to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. What is the point of managing the process of liking and commenting on photos for Instagram, but not being able to use it's primary function i.e. sharing photos

    Thank you all for your interest in this suggestion.

    At this time, Instagram has not opened photo posting abilities to third party applications. Currently the only way to upload an image to Instagram is from the mobile app, it is not even possible from their web version.

    We’ll continue to monitor progress with interest should this feature become available in the future.

        Unbelievable... How can it be that hootsuite can not offer a possibility to schedule Instagram posts? I want to use Instagram for marketing purposes but I am really disappointed that hootsuite can not provide this service.

        I agree about the false advertising with hootsuite. It's also ridiculous of Instagram. I will be using Instagram much less because of the difficulty incorporating it into my marketing plan. I will add to it, but it will be haphazard, at best.

        My issue is only with the false advertising of Hootsuite of a feature they don't really offer. The very first item under the Instagram App key features is not true. I've spent hours troubleshooting what I thought was an error on my part, or of my browser settings, or even of my browser extensions. As a last resort, I go to the forums and find out the truth..... NOT a good experience with Hootsuite.

        "Instagram App: Overview
        ...
        Key Features:
        -Share your Instagram photos with your social networks. (!?!)
        -View your photos and a feed of photos for the users you follow, popular photos and your 'likes', all in your dashboard.
        -View and post comments and 'likes'.
        -Keyword search and clickable hashtags to view related photos.
        -View user information; number of photos, plus follower and following count."

        Yes, this is the only thing missing from Hootsuite! It's a must have for businesses

        Would DEFINITELY love the ability to actually POST photos to Instagram via Hootsuite. This and Pinterest are needed features!
