Instagram for Chrome
" Instagram for chrome " is an extension in the chrome store that allows you to access your instagram while using the computer. It's very helpful if you want to check your instagram but you're too lazy to pick up your phone, like me. This extension is great but it also has some faults.
- You can easily access your instagram from your chromebook.
- You can search hashtags and people through your chromebook.
- You cannot post pictures from your chromebook.
- You cannot use the direct message feature (DM) on this extension.
What do I think about this extension?
Appeal: looks and sounds - For appeal I would give "Instagram for Chrome" a 2/4. I would give it this because in order to access some of the features you must open the "popup view" window. Another downfall to this extension is that if you accidentally click outside of the window you will automatically be closed out of the extension which means you now have to open up the extension again.
Engagement/Motivation - For this I would give this extension a 3/4. I would give it this because it kept me interested. I like this extension because I can keep up with what friends and families are doing as well as what is going on in the world at the moment.
User friendly directions and instructions - For this I would give this extension a solid 4/4. It is very easy to use and navigate.
Performance/Ease of use - I would give "Instagram for Chrome" a 3/4. This extension, for the most part is very reliable. However, going back to the issue that when you click out of the window the extension closes, this is very annoying. you also cannot use some of the features that you would be able to on a mobile device.
Differentiation in learning - I would give this extension a 2/4 because you cannot change your profile from this extension. However, you can leave comments and "like" things from this extension.
Overall this extension would get a 14/20. I think this extension deserves this because you cannot access everything from this, however it is mostly very reliable.
