Re: Is anyone else experiencing a slow or laggy Instagram or is it just me?
Most definitely yes
I have a fast internet connection
but Instagram loads slowly when i start it up (freezing for a few moments, and slow to scroll). Images load fast but its the usage of touchscreen functionality that is slow. Definitely Instagram not the internet connection.
But i am currently refusing to update to iOS 9.3.2 because i have decided to stop updating iOS, due to the fact that i don't like where Apple is taking the whole story, towards more and more social consumer use and less and less content creator stuff. Every time i update i regret it. So that my be why, i might have updated Instagram and now its no longer totally compatible. Instagram is on my iPad Air anyway and its meant for iPhone, so it messes up my landscape views in appswitcher too, and i think i may just delete it soon and find a way to post remotely to instagram. I dont look at the pretty pictures there anyway as i am not a consumer, i am a content creator who posts there for consumers.
Well, i do consume things but not social network stuff. My free time i consume documentaries and study academic topics such as evolutionary paleontology and anthropology, science, astronomy and ancient history.. but pretty pictures are not something i need to scroll through pressing 'like'. Neither do i like to scroll through a facebook feed either. Im just a guy who wants to post my own content.
I noticed instagram's slowness because i try to get to the add photo dialogue fast and scroll through my photos, and noticed a grand lag in the scrolling speed and a short delay before the screen unfreezes.
So yes, you are not the only one with a slow Instagram
