I said this many times and I’m going to do it again. Instagram is one of the best social networking applications on mobile devices. It’s compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad but still lacked important features. In order to have additional functionalities, a device must be jailbroken.
In the past, we have shown you how to save Instagram pictures directly within the app, repost a photo without third-party apps, and even find the exact timestamp of when a photo was posted.
Another feature that should be part of the core application is Mute. This function should allow Instagram users to mute their followers without unfollowing or blocking that person. A new jailbreak tweak was released today called InstaMute made it possible to easily mute Instagram followers.
Just like on Twitter, if you don’t want to see a specific follower’s posts you can mute them without tapping that Unfollow button. Maybe you have an annoying friend that post every 10 minutes or so and their photos or videos aren’t that interesting. InstaMute might possibly save your friendship.
The mute function works just like Block, if you no longer want to mute a follower, just go to their page and press Unmute.
You can download InstaMute from Cydia’s BigBoss repo and use it to mute someone on Instagram so that their posts including pictures and videos do not appear on your feed.
