instacron Instagram for the lazy

Automatically upload a photo to Instagram

Takes a random photo from the folder photos and adds a caption with a random quote. For example:

Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue. 🌬🌱 Taken in Colombia, Villavieja πŸ‡¨πŸ‡΄ on 13 January 2016. #instacron 🐍 instacron.nijho.lt

Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. ⚽🚌 Taken in Colombia, Cali πŸ‡¨πŸ‡΄ on 25 October 2015. #instacron 🐍 instacron.nijho.lt

I think and that is all that I am. πŸ’”πŸ€· Taken in Peru, Cusco πŸ‡΅πŸ‡ͺ on 21 November 2015. #instacron 🐍 instacron.nijho.lt

When all photos in the photos folder have been uploaded, it starts to upload the least frequently uploaded photos first.

Why does this exist?

I like to take pictures that I would like to share with the world but I am way too lazy to upload them using the app.
