How it works and how to use Qoob Stories

If you need to download photos via hashtag or from any public account, no login is required. But if you want to save stories, pictures from private accounts, your posts and posts from the accounts you follow, you need to log in with your Instagram account.

Importantly, the app does not store any information on your Instagram account.

To download Instagram content, you can do it in three ways:

  • Hashtag: Type the "#" sign before the word or phrase and click Subscribe.
  • Username- Type your username, then click Sign Up to browse an account's Instagram photos, videos, and stories.
  • Location- Enter the name of the location and click the search locations for the word highlighted in the search field. Then click Subscribe.

The app offers an option to select the media type and conditions for automatic download. Type in your search term and click Options next to the Sign Up button. Here you can set the date range for posts and select the type of media you want to download.

In the main UI, click the arrow button to see all posts for that account. You can hover over a post to see the caption. If you'd like to read the comments and check out any other information, right click on the post and select the Show on Instagram option.

Once the content is downloaded, click the More button and click Show in Folder to browse the saved content. Or you can export the posts as CSV and TXT for archiving purposes.
