Reported by Aleksandra | January 27th, 2019 @ 02:38 PM

Currently, Instagram is the leading social photo-sharing app in the world where 95 million pictures are posted daily. The number of monthly active Instagram users was 1 billion in 2018.

At first, Instagram started with a simple but unique feature - adhering a photo in a square with a few filters which allowed the company to receive greater investments and develop a solid project for major mobile platforms.

By the way, when Instagram was released, photo-sharing and editing tools existed separately on the market. As a result, the combination of both elements became the Unique Selling Proposition.

Today Instagram is a free photo-sharing app for Android and iOS smartphones, and there is also a web-based Instagram version for uploading and sharing photos. It is not a simple photo app, but a social platform offering wide functionality for business owners and marketing specialists.

This article gives a detailed explanation on how to make an app like Instagram for Android and iOS as well as unveils its approximate development cost for this kind of app.
