I love the app but there are 2 major changes that need to be made. 2 issues that need to be fix and is keeping me from wanting to really use it as much as I'd like 1. Not showing IGTVs on feed. When you post an IGTV it shows up on your Instagram feed but isn't presented on later, throwing off the whole pre-planning aspact of the app because there's things missing. It was really hard to figure out when to post quotes because I usually use later to create that checker board effect on my feed and it messed up because it didn't show my IGTV that was posted. 2. Creating captions and losing them. Often times when I create a caption on later the app will close and I lose my caption. And I make Long meaninful captions so you can imagine how big of an L that is. I would love to see an update where captions automatically save like Google docs once a caption is typed. So I don't have to write them out on notes to make sure I don't lose them.
I am changing my review back to five star. I’ve had some issues, but things have been working well for a while now. I do believe that the staff take great pride in Later and are working hard to keep things running seamlessly. The vision is there and they keep improving it. Every staff member I’ve worked with has been kind and has genuinely tried to help. My only complaint with the app is that it doesn’t have all of the features the desktop version has, so some of my work I need to do on desktop, not my tablet. I have one suggestion for the desktop version: It would be great to be able to move your entire schedule over to another week instead of having to move each post manually. There are times when I can’t keep up with my post schedule. I load photos and put them all in an order that looks great, then at some point life happens and I can’t get all the text completed for my upcoming posts and I need to move my schedule over. It’s a bit time consuming to have to move each individually, so being able to move the entire line up of future posts would be a great tool for me.
I subscribed to the paid plan based on the features it promised. After spending a good deal of time uploading & organizing posts, I realized I was unable to auto post as it said my Instagram account is not a verified business account (it definitely is). I spent hours troubleshooting & followed all the recommended steps to properly connect my accounts, still to no avail. I meet all the qualifications & followed all the directions to a tee, but Later just refuses to authenticate my Instagram & Facebook business page connection. Without that verification the app is essentially useless to me as I’m not able to use any auto post features. I tried to contact the support chat for help, and received no response. I finally got so frustrated I researched other apps & tried Planoly. It immediately connected & verified my accounts correctly & has been a dream to use so far! Literally took me two minutes to set up vs. the hours I spent trying to get Later to work. I recommend Planoly instead! I am out the money I already paid on Later & hours I wasted trying to get this app to work. It was a huge waste of time & a big disappointment! Stay away.
Earlier this year, I would have not recommended Later at all. There seemed to be a lot of errors in posting, and auto publish wasn’t available at the time. I was using Hootsuite, but struggled. It’s not easy if you want to keep a database of posts to use. It also constantly had connectivity issues for posting. I came back to this app to see if it would be better. I absolutely love it now. I’ve been using it for about two weeks, and haven’t once had issues with posts going out when I need. My favorite thing is I can upload multiple pictures at once and choose which ones I want to schedule. It also sorts by photos you have and have not used yet. You also have the ability to save captions, which is helpful when I want to keep using hashtags that were successful in the past. Keep up the improvement, Later!
LOVE this app! It’s made my Instagram life so much more enhanced. My dog is a pupfluencer, so it helps me be organized with the products that he showcases. What I love is the auto-post feature. I can schedule my posts ahead of time. It’s easy to use and very user friendly. You can save favorite hashtags into categories and then just click them as needed per post. You can also save separate captions so that they are just a click away! I have mine separated by my the products that my dog models. Once you have the post set up with your caption, hashtags, location and tagged users you can pick the date and time to publish. Save and done! You get 30 free auto posts per month....FREE!!!
