Hey you! You look like you need some hashtags! Well, you found the right place because we're gonna help you become a Hashtag Expert.

It works like this:

1) You give us base hashtags
2) We search our database of millions (literally millions) of hashtags and find ones that are proven to do well
3) You copy them, paste them on your next post, and boom! Watch the magic happen.

Ok, let's walk through another scenario. You're lazy and don't even feel like doing any work. That's totally ok with us. In Hashtag Expert, you can browse Trending hashtags in 35 different categories (like Memes, Sports, Tech, Beauty) and find hashtags that other people are generating! Yes, real people!

Our app isn't filled with preset hashtags–they are constantly being created by other hashtaggers just like you!

So whaddaya say. We don't make empty promises. We really believe our app can help you grow your Instagram account. You may even become a Hashtag Expert.

... it seems that you're still here. Ok, we get it, you're on the fence. You like us, the app seems promising, but you can't remember your password to download us or you don't feel like getting another app on your phone.

Well, let us tell you an entirely fictional story and try to persuade you.

Once upon a time, the IG gods got into a heated argument. One of the gods, Sys, as he was called slammed his fist on the conference room table and yelled "People can't discover other people's content! If we want our people to survive, they need a way to share their content so ANY one, small or big, famous or not famous, can go viral!"

Krieg, sitting across the table, didn't like getting yelled at. Frustrated and hungry, he redirected his eyes back at Sys and stared. A few seconds passed. Suddenly, Sys knew what Krieg was thinking.

"No, we can't. It's too dangerous" Sys whispered, tears forming at his eyes. "He's too powerful, it would jeopardize the entire platform."

"We don't have a choice!" Krieg said, raising his voice at the end. "We need to summon the..." he said, pausing at the end. He couldn't finish the sentence. At that moment, he saw his life flashing before his eyes. Is this what the platform needed? What would be the consequences?

"We need to summon the Hashtag Expert" he finally let out.

Sys started at the floor for a few moments and then slowly looked up. "We must do what we must do."

And that, according to legend, is how the Hashtag Expert was born.

What’s New

Version 4.0.1

Fixed attribution problem


You know when you get a haircut, look in the mirror, and think "Dayyyyyum! I look good!”
That's how we feel right now. Hashtag Expert has gotten a facelift–or... more like 10 facelifts combined. Like a body-lift (is that a thing?). We're getting carried away.

We've completely redesigned the entire app. We've added 8 new hashtag generation algorithms. You can now customize how your hashtags are generated! This means you can add default hashtags, change how many per group, set a custom copying format, and more. There’s a lot more. Like, a lot.

We've been working really hard on this for months now. It’s time for us to send our baby out into the wild and see how she does. Keep hashtagging and someday, you may become a Hashtag Expert. (Don’t get your hopes up, legend has it that only 3 humans have ever achieved this noble status). 

Keep living life, and let us know what you think. Hit us up on Instagram @hashtagexpert.

Great App, One issue

User of the app since it’s release.

I like how you can favorite tags and copy the ones already posted. I also like the percentage of popularity used with the new update. My only issue it that it has now removed the number of posts a hashtag has been used, along with sorting them via posts, which has been incredibly helpful since I don’t want to use something with over a million posts and my post gets buried in the sea of other photos. I would LOVE if this feature can return.

The percentage shown under the advanced settings should be if the tag has been trending in the last 12 hours or so. That way you can really nitpick and chose accordingly to be as successful as possible with your Instagram post.

Hi Dan,
I ran into some technical issues with showing the number of posts. Instagram sets a hard limit of 5,000 API requests per hour. So, for every hashtag you see listed, it would require 1 API request. With this, the app will quickly hit the request limit of 5,000 after probably 3 or 4 overall hashtag queries. That is why I removed it.

However, I'm going to give users the option to get the hashtag counts in the "Advanced" results view. I'm working on this update now, you should see it live within a week.

Thanks for the feedback,

Awesome app but needs editing options

Great little app for jumpstarting hashtag planning but it only lets you save and copy the generated hashtags. So if the app generates say 30 hashtags and 6 or 7 them aren’t relevant, there’s no way to remove or replace just those 6 or 7 from within the app. You’ll need to do that when writing your caption and you’ll need to remember to change this every time you use the saved block of hashtags.

We’re adding tons of customization options in an update that is coming soon!

Tried Free Trial, Now $50 Poorer

I thought the app might get me more clicks on my photos with the hashtags, so I decided to try the free trial. While it helped me find a few new hashtags to try, I actually got less impressions and interactions on my photos than when I used the hashtags I was already using anyway. Well I forgot about the app (the trial is only like 7 days or something) and next thing you know, I get billed $47 from iTunes, which is a lot for an app you don’t even use or find helpful. They charge you for a whole year instead of the $2+ a month. I canceled the subscription but since it already charged I didn’t get my money back and I have the rest of the year left on the subscription. I tried to find a way to contact support, but couldn’t find one, so I’m writing this review instead.
