InstaTime is advertised as an Instagram Viewer – a desktop application to view Instagram. The promotional campaign of InstaTime presents the target user with the following features: the viewing of one’s Instagram feed, commenting, liking posts, searching and following people right from one’s desktop. The user can leave the application running in the background and get back, whenever he (she) feels like, just in one click. The developers go on trilling about the expansion of the features according to the feedback of the users. And they finish their thrill with the blown-up statement, Once you get it, you won’t regret it!, while the truth is the very opposite.
