  7. 7
    Instagram needs to access a few things
    .
    If you don't give it access you can't install it. That simple. We have a 7.5mb download, that is by far the smallest download of anything that we've had yet and it should be a very quick install.

    We can either sign up or we can log in
    .
    We can sign up or login with Facebook, or we can use our Gmail, or you can tap on login and we can use our Username and password which will let you login. Any of those options will let you log in to this program and once you're logged in you'll be able to use it just like you normally would. Take pictures, edit, etc.
