How to use?

Directly from within the Instagram app

To download download a profile picture (also from private accounts), story or full Instagram post of a specific user within the Instagram app, just click on a random post of a specific Instagram user within the Instagram app and press the three dots “(•••)” in the upper right hand corner of the post, after that press “Share with” and run the InstaUltimate Lite shortcut.

Media from private accounts you follow

Within Instagram, press the three dots “(•••)” in the upper right hand corner of the post you would like to download, then open Safari and go to the URL you copied (make sure that you are logged in to Instagram within Safari). After that, simply press the share button next to the book symbol and run the InstaUltimate Lite shortcut.

Stories from private accounts you follow

To download a story from a private Instagram account you follow, open up Safari (make sure that you are logged in to Instagram within Safari) and view the story you would like to download. Then, simply press the share button next to the book symbol and run the InstaUltimate Lite shortcut.
