Free Instagram Downloader review

Download entire Instagram albums with this free tool.

Free Instagram Downloader allows you to browse and download all the photos from specific Instagram users' accounts.

Pros

Guided downloads: After you download a photo or album, Free Instagram Downloader always prompts to take you to the download location.

Batch processing: Free Instagram Downloader lets you download entire albums at once from a single user, eliminating the hassle of clicking through individual images and checkboxes. In fact, the app assumes you're going to do that, as every photo is checked by default when you first open the app. Images are also renamed as numbers, instead of keeping the inexplicable default string for each file name.

Cons

Inexplicable design quirks: Why does the File tab mirror the contents of the Help tab? Touch mode seems incomplete, as it only expands the checkboxes but does not scale all menu items accordingly.

Lack of description: It would be nice to see photo descriptions scraped. There is no feature to enlarge thumbnails, so users can't identify the photo without downloading.

Bottom Line

Free Instagram Downloader is your average app that gets the job done, as long as you don't mind putting up with some minor interface quirks. It's not the prettiest app on the block and doesn't encourage long-term engagement in its environment. The app's greatest strength is the batch download feature. Free Instagram Downloader is a perfectly capable Instagram scraper with few disruptions.
