Download Instagram Stories

[DISCONTINUED] Download Stories via


NOTE: also stopped working, and I'm not interested in looking for a new site every few months, specially when now there are excellent alternatives like u/mvan231's Instagram Media Saver.

Original description

I was looking into downloading Instagram Stories for someone and found, a website that did most of the work. I decided to make a shortcut with it, and it was relatively easy to do. It may serve as an example to learn Shortcuts, so I have added comments in the non-trivial steps.

That website stopped working in May 29th, so in version 1.2.0 I switched to, a similar site.
