Instagram will not allow any third party apps or client applications to upload a picture. So you can’t find any Instagram clients to upload pictures from your PC or Mobile devices.

You can favorite, comment and reply to the comments from the app. The second option contains all your favorites. Using the third option, you can bookmark and add tags into the pictures in your timeline. The fourth option, “Explore” will be very helpful than the default explore option in Instagram.
