Oh Snap!!  I came across this software today while researching how to upload photos to Instagram from my Desktop.   I love Instagram, but nothing is more annoying than having to upload photos from my phone & type in all those little descriptions with hashtags & links.   Someday’s I have a lot of photos I want to upload & share but when I think about how much time it’s gonna take to complete this…I get discouraged and just say Forget about it!

Well…The Software I found is called BlueStacks.  It’s FREE.  It allows you to download mobile apps to your PC.  So this isn’t just for Instagram people…It’s for other apps that you’ve  probably been wishing you had Desktop access to.

All you do is:

  1. Download the Desktop app for PC or MAC.
  2. Once app is installed, go to settings —> Cloud Connect Sync, enter your email & phone # to get your PIN.
  3. Then install the cloud connect app on your phone,  You can find it in the App Store, Google Play Store
  4. Login with your PIN and “Push” the app onto your PC from your phone by Synching it.

TIP: You won’t learn this from a tutorial. I learned the hard way.  In order to get your pics or albums to show up properly within the Instagram for PC app, you will need to download ES File Manager from your app store or Google Play from your PC/MAC,  (It’s Free too),  then dump your photos into this path: /sdcard/bstfolder/bstsharedfolder

Viola!    You can now use the app on your computer!

You can download the app software directly from the BLUESTACKS website or through CNET.  I went right to the company site because I don’t like CNET’s “extras” that they include with downloads.  I don’t have time for ads.

Here’s a good TUTORIAL on how to do this.  Remember, you don’t have to download anything through CNET, you can use the link I gave for bluestacks above or just go to


Let me know how this works out for you!   Stellar Out!
