This tutorial will let you know how to repost on Instagram App. You will get all the information about how to share pictures and videos of other users on Instagram in Android and iPhone. Best repost app for Instagram shared.

Very often when you like any Instagram post be it Picture or video of the user you’re following, you got no option other than like and comment. The maximum you can do is to save Instagram photo or video which other user has uploaded and then share it as a new post on your profile. There is no feature whatsoever in Instagram official app  to share or repost like retweet and share on Twitter and Facebook respectively.

However, I will share an app for iOS and Android which will let you repost on Instagram. The main benefit of repost is that you share a post on your profile and give credit to the original source at the same time without having to put in much effort.
