Lucky Insta is a free Instagram client for Windows 8 devices that has a very clean and beautiful interface. The app has neatly positioned controls at the left side of the screen with toggles allowing you to Share a picture, Logout, etc. (more to that later). The app supports docked view for multitasking by optimizing the complete interface to only use up a little amount of screen space, and has easy toggles to like an image, or post a comment. The app allows you to share your images as well, without you having to log in to the Instagram website. Everything is made ridiculously easy in this app, which is something to love!
Lucky Insta is free from ads of all sorts, and the slick UI offers big enough controls to be extremely optimized for touch screen devices. The app’s control bar is open permanently at the left side of the screen, thereby saving you the time and trouble of right clicking on an empty area to bring up the control bar. To each his own, but for me, I really love this concept.
Lucky Insta is available as a free download from the Windows App Store.
Using the Lucky Insta App, in a nutshell…
Using the Lucky Insta app is incredibly easy. As soon as you will open up the app, you will be asked to log in by entering your Instagram username and password (see below screenshot).
Once logged in, the toggles at the left side of the screen become active. These toggles include quick links to go back one page, refresh the page, search for a particular user/image, go to the home page, find people, add bookmarks, share your own images, and logout. The toggles are cleverly opened up at all times, thereby saving you the trouble to manually bring up the control bar to access these toggles. Once logged in, you will be presented with a window which looks like the below screenshot.
You will be able to see your profile and the images that have been uploaded by you. You can also see the images uploaded by others, like them, and leave comments.
The app also works in docked view!
That pretty much sums up the how-to of using this app. You can also check out the Facebook Pro + app for Windows 8.
- Smooth interface.
- No annoying advertisements that may ruin the experience of the app.
- The app supports docked view for multitasking.
- Easy quick toggles are present at the left side of the screen that allow you to navigate between various parts of the Instagram website.
Lucky Insta is a good app to have on your Windows 8 device if you are a person who loves Instagramming your daily life. The app is replete with all the features of the actual Instagram website itself, and the quick toggles make it easy to navigate between various parts of the website. Personally speaking, I love this app!
