One of the main annoyances I had with Instagram was the inability to switch between multiple accounts the way I could with Twitter. I have my own Instagram account but I also maintain one for someone else. Whenever I wanted to switch between accounts I had to completely log out of mine and then enter the full username and password of the other. It was the very definition of a first world problem but still annoying.
I had heard rumblings of Instagram rolling out a new feature that allowed seamless switching within accounts but heard it was being tested on Android so as an iPhone user I would have a bit of a wait. Annoying but doable.
Yesterday came the news that with the latest Instagram update (7.15 for iOS), both Apple and Android users would be given this long-awaited feature.
Cue my happy dance.
Except when I followed the instructions, I didn't have the option to add an account. I thought I was going crazy until someone who had the feature took a screenshot of their phone to show me where the option should be. I wasn't going crazy, I just didn't have the feature yet. Cue hand-wringing and Facebook moaning.
It turns out my angst was unnecessary (as it so often is) and just a few hours later, the option was added to my account. I've added additional accounts to my account and now I can seamlessly switch between them without logging off and entering the new account information every time.
