Requested features by user through email/Skype/other:

  • Scrape images from Reddit (e.g if upvoted by x amount scrape image).

  • Ways to prevent certain words from showing up when a post has been scrabed (e.g no @ mentions allowed).

  • Like 2-3 post after follows.

  • I would really like a feature in the Comments and Likes section, to prevent InstaQ from Liking and Commenting on the accounts I follow. I know for some this might rather be an interesting feature that InstaQ does like and comment your followers. But I value personal interaction with the accounts I follow and I do not want InstaQ placing rather impersonal comments on the posts of these accounts. Maybe there could be a query to exclude interaction with some accounts.

  • Can we have delete posts feature? and maybe inbox viewer.

It would be great if the "@username/followers" and "@username/following" queries would also work for Likes, not just following.

I'm sure I have unfollowed on autopilot? In fact I know I have because I got blocked by Instagram for unfollowing too fast.
