The Story Saver – Stories & Highlights Downloader app is designed for anyone who wants to save Instagram stories, which disappear after 24 hours, by keeping a file on their account or by inspiring other users.
This requires logging in with Instagram or Facebook data, which then lets you search the social network to find the stories you want to record on your smartphone.
Saved stories can then be republished on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, but this is only advisable with the permission of the original author of the image or video because it may violate copyright. The whole process is quick and easy, and you don't need to follow the accounts to download as long as the account is not private.
The app has been available since August, but with the latest update some users have complained about slower advertising and intrusion.
The app is available for Android and the download is free, but note that you must provide your Instagram login details in order to use it.
