There are several apps in the App Store that are designed for saving Instagram videos and photos, but, not many of them come free of charge.

InstaSave Repost for Instagram

This app is very easy to use.

How to use it?

Simply download the app, connect your account, and grant the app permission to access your Instagram account. Once you’re signed into Instagram, anything you “like” — whether it be a photo or video — will be saved in a clean, chronological feed. Here, you can also see your likes in the classic grid format with which we’re all accustomed. 

Quick Reposter: Repost Photo

Another free app is Quick Reposter. The app does more than just repost videos, it saves them as well.

How to use it?

You will be prompted to login, but you don’t need to create an account to access the app. Press the tab on the bottom left that says ‘repost “copy link”’, and it will ask you to open Instagram. Once opened, you can simply copy the link of the video you want to save, and it will automatically save it in Quick Reposter.

When the video is finished downloading you will have the option of reposting or saving to your camera roll. There are ads that will pop up, but it’s not overbearing. Download takes seconds and its easy-to-use interface makes this app a go-to pick for iOS.
