It’s a very effective app when it’s working right. When I first started using it I could batch follow every few hours or so, but then it said that Instagram was rejecting my action. So I gave it 24 hours and tried again and it still refuses to let me follow any new accounts or if it does let me it follows 3-5. Other than that I really like the app.

I put in a support request and gave it three days without following anyone through the app. It worked fine on Instagram but not through the app. The support request email responded saying they disabled the support due to the number of requests after the Instagram Algorithm change. I’m hoping they figure this out soon. I have a friend who has had the app for a while and he doesn’t have any issues. I’m wondering if I’m having issues because I’m new and Instagram is freaking out at the new activity. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Either way I need this resolved...

This app is a huge help!

I use it to manage my clients as well as my own IG account. I also use the companion app Cleaner made by the same developer. I use Captivate to add followers and Cleaner to remove them. I like how Captivate has the settings in place to help safeguard against triggering the IG limitation for follow and unfollow actions. While you can unfollow in Captivate, the Cleaner app makes it a lot easier and keeps everything seamless for me at least. When I use the search I generally mirror an influencer’s followers or recent liker’s from a fresh post and just watch it grow. I do keep the limits on like 50 default actions at a time, 90 second one actions for following, hide people I’m already following and hide people I’ve already unfollowed so that there’s no duplicates. I also this this a different times in the day keeping under 100 but no less than 50 actions at a time. Doing this in collab with some organic activity when I’m not using these apps directly in IG keeps everything kosher. Also too when you are running these apps just a word of advice make sure you’re not posting or liking things in the actual IG app at the same time. That way you won’t flag the algorithm to give you issues 😊

Pretty good, several issues

The app sets good guidelines for helping you avoid getting temporarily blocked by instagram's dumb following/unfollowing limits. Worked great when I started using it and my growth was explosive at first (1,000 new followers in just one day). It has slowed down a little lately though. Also, the discover section has been recycling the same accounts. So I'll follow a batch of people and if I unfollow them later on, they reappear in the discover section. It needs a filter for people you've previously followed and unfollowed since I can't honestly remember every single account I've ever followed and then unfollowed later on. There are also a lot of accounts in the discover section that say no relationship, but when I look at their profile it turns out I have dozens of mutual friends. Good app but not quite hitting the mark yet.

Edit from previous review: they seriously need to add an option to batch follow from the search tab. The discover tab shows the same accounts over and over again, and the search tab only allows you to follow one at a time (I can do that just using Instagram...don't need an app for this). The discover tab shows a lot of garbage, fake accounts, and users unrelated to my brand, so this is a must if I want to target accounts that I actually want to interact with
