Instagram is currently the social network with the most active users in recent times. The operation of this network is simpler than it seems at first glance… Its end? To be able to interact with other users through comments and likes in the publications either photos or videos.
If you are thinking of opening an Instagram account or if you already have one, you should know that you will only be able to modify and upload photos via the mobile app from a phone or a tablet. If you don’t have any of these devices, you will probably not be able to publish on Instagram.
However, as there is a solution for almost everything, there are countless applications to achieve this goal. Today we want to show me a program designed precisely to upload photos from the PC to Instagram.
This is Gramblr, the app created to make it easier for users to use Instagram when they don’t have a mobile device. Below, we explain how to download this app, how to upload photos and videos, and other additional features that will be convenient for you to know. Don’t take your eye off!

Other Gramblr functions
Gramblr is mainly designed for uploading photos and videos to Instagram from your PC, however, it also has other features you need to know to take advantage of this program.
As explained in the previous sections, you can schedule your publications for users to see when you want. You can do this from the “Scheduled” section and view it in the “History” section, where you can also see the performance of each of them.
Another interesting function is to get likes for coins… How? Very simple!
Gramblr has a section called “Rating” where you will see photos of other users. From here you can hit like, or if you prefer you can jump to the next one. For each like you will receive 5 coins with which you will be able to buy later likes for your publications, and thus make your Instagram profile more eye-catching.
Buying a like will cost you about 10 coins, here’s how to send likes to your publications.
- Click on the heart in the top bar of Gramblr.
- When you are clear about which publication you want to give likes, copy the link.
- Choose the number of likes you want to send.
- You will also be able to select so that the likes you receive are from users in your region, but this may take a little more time.
If you don’t have time to make use of this option, but you are interested in earning coins, you can always buy them with the PayPal balance. Here you have no limit, you can get different packages depending on the amount you want to invest.
As not everything is pink, you should also know the setbacks you can find in this program. Our mission is to inform users, and that’s why we want you to know what the pros and cons of Gramblr are.
Currently, many users have reported as an error that, when uploading photos from this program later found that they had deactivated the #Hashtags they had chosen. Apparently these were no longer placed in blue as they usually appear normally, but were seen as a normal text.
In these cases, Instagram has probably decided to block them as a kind of sanction for publishing content from other programs outside the official app. However, in recent times it seems that this problem has been solved as no recent complaints have been found.
Anyway, if you decide to use this program you should know that it will always be under your responsibility. Although many users claim that Gramblr does not work, as you have seen, the application is currently active and there are also many others who speak wonderfully of it.
