Check how to Repost on Instagram Android. Reposting on Instagram sounds like it should be easy. You just go within the app and click 'repost', just like you'd retweet on Twitter or share on Facebook, right? Sadly, it's not as simple as that. Instagram doesn't have a repost function within its app, but the good is, there are ways to do it.

So you've got permission and you're ready to repost, but how do you actually go about it? If you type in repost for Instagram on the App Store you get a lot of different versions of basically the same thing. Some of them are better to use than others, and we've had problems in the past with reposting apps occasionally going on the blink. Our current favorite for iOS is Repost: for Instagram because it allows you to repost posts with more than one image, and for Android, we like to Repost for Instagram.


All of these apps work in basically the same way. You start on Instagram, where you tap the three dots at the top of the post you want to share, then select 'copy link' or 'copy share URL'. You should get a little message that says 'link copied to clipboard'.

You then open up your Instagram reposting app of choice, where the post you've saved should appear. You will then be able to choose where the attribution mark goes (top left-hand corner, bottom right, and so on), or sometimes remove it.

You will also be given the option to copy the original caption. Repost: for Instagram does this for you automatically. It's good practice to copy the original caption, as it is another way to credit the original poster.
