Instagram-Bookstagram Fun Depends on Your Phone–Any Help Here?

#TBR

I’ve mentioned on this blog before how much I enjoy photos, especially doggy and gorgeous landscape shots and that I love working on graphics, particularly in relation to the books I’m reviewing. Many times a neat book cover will grab me and I can’t wait to “play” with it. (HOPE that is okay!!)

To that end, I discovered Instagram, and behind that, Bookstagram. Yeah, I know. Millions of people discovered it long before now and let’s face it, a free account is not going to get the glitz and glamour of a business account, but it has provided more fun than a new canvas and oils–until now.

#TBR - Freedom Road

Sprint socked it to us again and we finally gave up. Can’t afford them anymore and went hunting for an inexpensive (read: cheap) cell phone carrier. There are several who advertise “senior specials.” Uh huh…Trying to change cell phone carriers is almost as difficult as buying a car. Perhaps more so. With tons of cell phones out there, it boils down to…hmm…anything that doesn’t require half the social security check. We went to see about Consumer Cellular and learned for the first time about locked and unlocked cell phones. My old cell phone (emphasis on old) was a Samsung Galaxy S5 (Android). Easy, intuitive, and fairly fast, the only downside being the camera. Not the best. But it’s a great phone! And I could use the Later app to schedule my Instagram/Bookstagrams. But even unlocked, my trusty Galaxy could not be interfaced with the new carrier (T-Mobile).

Now I have a “basic” phone (read: really cheap). An LG K30, it’s still an Android. Ever heard of this thing? It doesn’t like Instagram (it freezes) and absolutely refuses to open Later. I’ve scoured the internet for any information on it as granted I hate switching phones; it takes me forever to learn to use a new device and thought it might be my fault.

I can still view some of my favorite blogger/bookstagrammers, however, and love to see how so many talented artists put together gorgeous and engaging book photos. Here are just a few:

(Don’t ask me why that last copy/paste worked and the others didn’t. I’ve no clue.) Obviously, I love looking at so many fantastic, original pieces of art woven into the beauty of book covers. There must be a way to get Later to work, or failing that, is there another scheduling program for Instagram?

Any ideas or suggestions would be more than welcome! Thank you!!

    1. thank you! hope so too as trying to do one on my phone today had me so frustrated, i’m chewing nails. also, of course, you can’t schedule then for the appropriate time to post. shalini suggested Hootsuite, but getting into that thing reminded me why I quit. why a phone can’t work with that app is beyond me. (obviously)

Happiness for a moment with you....

I'm glad I learned to express my thoughts clearly and everyone loves to read them. Sometimes it takes a lot of thinking power to think about the surroundings. Someone who likes it, someone who enjoys it, appreciates that he is writing very well. Reading and commenting on the post I wrote would give me a lot of bullshit and I would get new ideas to write new ones. I'm really glad I got your response.
