Insta Echo

Insta Echo is a free plugin for your Instagram app. Share your Instagram creations straight from your Instagram app. Send photos to email, Google Drive, Dropbox, Google+, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, other photo apps, etc, etc, etc. No more restrictions. The sky’s the limit! You can even share back to Instragram itself allowing you to layer your effects!

Note: To use this app, you must have Instgram already installed from the Play Store

Insta Echo can fail to attach itself to Instagram if Instagram is already running in the background when you start Insta Echo. Restarting Insta Echo can sometimes help.

To use normally, make sure Instagram is not running, then run Insta Echo to start the sharing plugin. When sharing is activated, the “UPLOAD” button in Instagram will first do a standard Instagram upload followed by displaying the standard Android sharing menu, giving you acces to any app on your system that is able to ingest images. To return to the default Instagram behavior, run Insta Echo again and select the “Stop” button.

For more creativity, use Instaecho along with Abstract Photo Painter!
