The users can post pictures and videos, but cannot download anything from the application. It’s a little disappointing for the users when they constantly explore myriad of videos or images and, finding some of them worthy of saving or sharing among family and friends who are not on Instagram, but are unable to do so. Nonetheless, there are certain ways one can get hold of their favourite Instagram videos and images.
