This app has stopped working as intended and nobody is responding on the support portal. Need to get my money back. Do not pay for this! Carousel posts don't work anymore. Shame as it worked well for a long time. If anyone from Flume reads this, please reply.

I too am having issues regarding uploading posts via Flume. It used to work, but no longer. I've tried contacting their support several times, but it's been radio silence from them. Are they still in business? Their support panel doesn't have this issue listed, but apparently, I'm not alone.

Worked well before but it's been a while now that it is broken. Tried to reach the customer service but no answers. I have to buy another software now.

I am disgusted with Flume and I hope that no one spends money on this piece of garbage. It worked great for months and then it just stopped working. I have tried to reach someone on their portal for 6 months and no one has ever replied, not even a computer generated message. They must have made a lot of money off of all of us. At this point I can't help but wishing nothing but the worse to the creators and liars involved with Flume. I wish that I could give them a minus star but even that would be too good.

Flume was simply the best app for posting to Instagram. I loved how it could read the metadata and use the keywords as hashtags. It could post the copyright and assign the location. If there was a description it used that as well. It made posting to Instagram so simple and very thorough for the anal retentive among us. Sadly, it seems to have been abandoned. It no longer works for posting. Yes, I could do all those things by hand, but it would be laborious at best and just too much hassle to be worthwhile. Even using Chrome for posting still isn't anywhere near as polished or easy. Hopefully the folks in charge of Flume will read all these comments and resume development. As it is now, Flume should not be purchased as it is useless.

It's no longer serve its purpose I guess. It failed to post any content, not to mention the carousel posts, even it failed for a single post. This app only enabling me to see the updates, timeline, dm, likes, comments, who's following, pretty much the basic you may get through the Instagram web. I paid for nothing. Argh.
