Easily Download Content from Instagram and Vine

If you’re an Instagram user, you’ve probably noticed how difficult it is to save an image to your computer. Sure, you could always take a screenshot of what’s displayed onscreen or peer into the HTML source on the desktop website, but these are rather inconvenient. Plus, if you simply take a screenshot, you end up having to crop your capture to only include the subject of interest. The same goes for the relatively new video sharing service Vine. You could easily set up a video capture program to save content to your device, but that’s far from convenient.

To help you save your favorite Instagram and Vine content locally, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG created two simple modifications that do all the hard work for you. Since these mods are Xposed modules, you will need to have XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) installed. Once the modules are installed, simply activate them in Xposed installer and restart. And once you’ve restarted, a simple click on a Vine video or Instagram picture is all it takes to save the content to your local storage.

To get started, head over to the Instagram Downloader and Vine Downloader module threads.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
