IG:dm – A Desktop Client for Sending Instagram Direct Messages

Not too long ago we released an article on an unofficial Instagram desktop app for Linux, Ramme. Awesome app; except that you are still limited to sending direct messages with your phone’s Instagramm app. Today, we bring good news to you in the form of IG:dm.

IG:dm is a free, unofficial Instagram desktop client with which you can send direct Instagram messages from your desktop.

It features a UI reminiscent of the Instagram app on a Tablet and mirrors Facebook’s app presentation in the sense that just like the main Facebook mobile app, IG:dm is the unofficial messenger-like app for Instagram.

Sending Instagram Direct Messages

You should note that IG:dm is neither affiliated with Instagram nor is it open-source.

Features in IG:dm

  • Free to download on GNU/Linux, Windows, and macOS.
  • Closed-Source: IG:dm is not open-source.
  • Search, follow and unfollow users.
  • Send direct messages to users.
  • View all the users who don’t follow you back.
  • Quote chat messages
  • Supports viewing chat images in full.

IG:dm offers a smooth user experience but, as at the time of writing, it doesn’t have any customization features. Who needs those, though? Isn’t the plan to send direct Instagram messages and be done with it?

You can only tell after you’ve tested it yourself.

  1. I don’t know… I have tried IG:dm, everything is ok but it can slow to a crawl and occasionally fiddly. I always have to stay in touch with my customers so can’t afford something to slow my PC down. Bluestacks was just fine but had the same problems with the speed. Now I am stick to Ingramer. i used to test it to gain my Instagram growth, but it turned out to have DMs option from a computer as well. Very handy. What about you guys? Is everyone satisfied with IG:dm performance?
