    I really HATE how soon as I open this app there’s a video playing. Why am I being forced to watch/ hear these things. I just want to work on my channel.
  • Functionality Lacking

    Great concept, unfortunately, I am very disappointed in the apps lack of functionality. I cannot find a way of editing, or deleting a video. To err is human and I am a novice, and one who is still navigating my way through the ways of video social media, user friendly is going to be very important to me. In other words, a simple means of being able to make corrections to my posts is essential. I find it difficult to believe that the IG developers did not think to add such a basic function; therefore, I can accept that, maybe, I am not seeing it. That said, it should be more obvious.

    Only benefits if you have a large follower base, the smaller accounts don’t even get a pinch on igtv you have to have 100k followers or more for igtv to benefit you . It’s kinda discriminatory in my opinion and only benefits accounts with a larger follower base.

    To simply put it this app lacks in layout design and functions. I want this app to be great but every time I get on it I get irritated for the reasons above and just end up closing it. The only reason I still have the app is in hopes they change and improve
  • why is this even an app?!?!?

    not sure why IG needed another app just for the same content you get on IG already...i see some vids are longer, but they could’ve done this w/ the app they already have.
  • I see a lot of potential

    This is one of the first updates in a while that has excited me on Instagram. I don’t think this would out rule Youtube anytime soon though. I think people are forgetting all the benefits users get on there and IGTV so far is not something people have warmed up to but I do feel if the app is continually updated for more user friendly usage it could go far. A couple suggestions. Videos should not auto play as soon as you step out of a video there’s no home section so the video just keeps playing in the background until you press pause. It’s a bit obnoxious if not a lot. Also I agree with others who have mentioned that we should just be able to view peoples thumbnails larger instead of the video right behind it. I think also after a while once a person has a lot of videos scrolling will be annoying if it stays left to right. It would be better for the thumbnails to be vertical scrolling up and down. The interface does need a lot of work but the concept is good I would say great but we need more time to see. I do really like that the igtv icon automatically appears on your IG profile once you upload a video. The only thing with updating IG users when new videos are uploaded on to IGTV it may get annoying that the icon stays highlighted at the top of the screen even once a user leaves the Instagram app and refreshes. I think it should just notify once like IG LIVE and then disappear. Or have a section where you can see new content uploaded on to IGTV from the original Instagram app. You can tell a lot of people are just hopping on to IGTV just to clear the notification and they’re not watching the video. I think the notification should feel optional and not forced. I can deal with the fact that you can’t edit videos on IGTV but in the future it would be a nice feature if made simplistic. I think the app needs to aim into being VERY user friendly almost dummy proof because people don’t have a lot of patience for complicated formats on apps. Lastly can we please be able to edit our titles and captions on the IGTV videos! I can tell that will be annoying if we have a typo we can’t fix. Thanks and good luck IG! We’re rooting for you!
  • Instagram disabled accounts with no reason

    Hi, ‏I've disabled my account on what I think because I posted a video about my friend in my personal account. You think I harassed him or insulted him, but before I posted his video, he agreed, He was allowed to post this video to my account. If you want me to prove I'm ready for it. I did not violate your terms and community guidelines. I publish videos, and my personal photos, you can check everything with my account. I just want to recover my account again.I will not forget that before, you have removed many of my publications because of the reports from people who hate me and make fictitious accounts to to closed my account down. it has become a misunderstanding. Thanks. ‏My disabled account is @lllt_ My friend account is @aboud_hq

    Why no option still to post videos based on their original aspect ratio. Not all videos captured vertically! Also, no option to disable autoplay. Videos For Me start playing automatically although they are completely not per my liking!

    Please make the bar to home hide on the iPhone X,XR,XS,XS Max is kind of annoying having it there at all times while watching a video.
