Saw this article the other day, about instagram now allowing 3rd party apps. Is this true? Will SB allow this in future updates?

    Looking into it. They are only allowing certain partners to access that.

    So I just added a Buffer uploader to Sparkbooth 6 beta. You can download
    Sparkbooth 6 at:
    https://sparkbooth.com/2018/04/sparkbooth-6-beta-mirror-booth/

    Buffer has an option to repost to Instagram. I haven't been able to test
    the Instagram reposting, since there seems to be a problem with Instagram's
    ability to link to a Facebook account. Maybe you will have better luck. Let
    me know.

    I’ll play with it tonight, question this is only to automatically upload? Or upload from the kiosk ?

    It is just in Send to Account for now. If it works, I will look into the
    adding to the kiosk. There are many rules and constraints about porting to
    an Instagram account, so we will have to see if they will allow it.

    I was able to get the my Instagram account to work with Buffer.com and I
    was able to get Sparkbooth to post to Instagram using the Buffer uploader.
    Check it out
    https://www.instagram.com/sparkbooth/

    Not sure how useful it will be, since Buffer will only post images directly
    to Instagram it fits 1 of 3 image sizes that Instagram accepts. So you will
    need to create the layout using of those 3 paper sizes. I added those
    Instagram paper sizes to 6.0.54 which will be released today.

    will this only work on the buffer business account not the free account?
