Like it before ir broke my site
By , for WP 3.7.1

Worked fine for a while, but then my site broke today. My hosting company's response: "It looks like the instapress plugin was fed after midnight and has spawned a litter of gremlins."

DO NOT INSTALL this Plug in
By , for WP 3.6.1

Its the only plug-in I have connected to Instagram. In my instagram settings it is the only Authorized Application I have.

I now have started following strange people on Instagram that I never authorized. I Suspect ("BUT CANNOT BE DEFINITELY POSITIVE") this plug-in is an aggregator selling followers to people and logging in with your acct info.

Change Your Password and delete the plug-in.

In your menus just create a link to your Instagram Profile. It's a better solution any way.

The code is using a php feature deprecated since 2004 and which has been a known issue and unpatched for a year. I would stay away from this.

Unreliable/broken
By , for WP 3.5.1

Using the lastest version of WordPress I found this plugin to be unreliable. Firstly because I have to type in my Instagram user credentials in the WordPress backend to do xAuth, which isn't the way xAuth is supposed to work. Secondly because the entire backend portion of the plugin wouldn't work on a test server. There all the options were wrapped in an <a href> linking to the WordPress codex for permissions. Also, the checkboxes for the settings didn't work.
