Scheduling & publishing to Instagram

Scheduling can be done from both the web and mobile apps. Publishing to Instagram needs to be done on a mobile app as Instagram requires you to post through their app. Later sends you a mobile notification at the time you scheduled the post on your mobile (iOS or Android) phone or tablet and opens the post in Instagram ready for you to post.
