I uploaded the app about 1 month ago. It was easy to install once I followed the directions correctly. At first I linked to all my social sites, but that produced duplicate posting displays. I now use only my facebook, instagram and tweeter feeds in a "grid" display. It looks like a cool magazine cover. I like the fact that the hashtags shows and the visitors can share directly for the displayed posting. I do a lot of image postings and the visual grid display helps me coordinate marketing campaigns. Still building my site so I haven't upgraded yet.
we just cancelled this. there was periodic intermittent down time here and there and the need to re-install if instagram changed something in their code which i understood but then it went down for a week. i wrote to the developer and he told us to re-install the app. when we tried to do so, we got an error message that our instagram handle is invalid and does not exist. this happened to two separate clients using the app - we tried three browsers and on two different computers - one a mac and one a pc and still got the same error. vendor did not provide assistance after this so we cancelled our subscription. unfortunately we will not get our money back.
Please dont waste your money! it doesn't work!!!
This app is a SCAM. Our company needed a way to integrate our Instagram feeds into our Shopify official page. We looked for an app that could solve this problem and we found this one. When we started utilizing it we were satisfied with it. It all changed quickly though. Because we were using the free trial we had to uninstall and reinstall the application each time we updated our account. This was no problem; we were planning on paying to have the service upgraded anyway. The problem came when we paid for the service and tried to integrate Instagram again. It failed. It would not let us access our feeds, displaying this message each time we tried: “Error: The selected account does not exist. Please try again with another account”. This happened time and time again, no matter the Instagram username we used. Our business relies heavily on our Instagram feeds so it goes without saying this problem affected us extremely. We contacted customer support immediately and we were did NOTHING to solve this inconvenience. For starters, they always took one or two days to reply to our e-mails, and every time they did reply they did it with things like “Can you kindly confirm you still have the same problem?” Yeah, if I sent you the e-mail is because we have a problem. A week went by and the problem was not solved, we asked for a refund and have not got it. They have not replied. USING THIS APP COST US A LOT OF MONEY; USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
Great app and great customer support!
Nope, didn't work for us. Had to look for other alternatives and found a free widget instead

The ugly purple "powered by" bar and the fact that it was on a separate page really bothered me. I found an Instagram widget for my homepage called LightWidget that does the same for a one time fee of $10, it updates every 40 minutes and you have customization options. Check out my store www.tasteteanaturals.com it looks great! It's only for Instagram so stick with Social Media Stream if you want other feeds to show or you want a separate page.
This app is good for a free app. Three major points for improvement.
1. Allow admin to be able to make changes such as edit text/captions, unselect certain pictures they don't want shown, and prioritize one stream over another.
2. The purple colour for the "powered by" bar is terrible and clashes with my theme.
3. Would be ideal for it to feature on the homepage but will have to probably just upgrade my theme instead.
For now it will do the job.
