For many of us, Instagram is the social media platform of choice to keep up with the Kardashians (like that NSFW selfie Kim KW posted yesterday), find out what your friends are up to and also share that selfie for when you鈥檙e 鈥渇eelin鈥 your look.鈥 Despite it being one of the most downloaded apps in the App Store, there are quite a few things you can do with Instagram that you likely never realized before. We鈥檝e rounded up a聽number of tricks to help turn you into an Instagram master.

less-data

1. Use less mobile data. If you don鈥檛 mind waiting a little longer for your images and videos to load for the sake of saving some data, this option is for you. You can turn it on by going to your profile and selecting the Settings icon in the upper right hand corner. From that page, go to Cellular Data Use and toggle on 鈥淯se Less Data.鈥

switching-views

2. Change the view of your feed. This one is pretty simple, but we often forget that it鈥檚 an option. You can change the view of your feed, or anyone else鈥檚, from tiles to endless scrolling full-sized pics simply by tapping between the buttons on your profile page.

instagram-map

3. See a map of all your snaps. Another one of these buttons takes you to a map of all the snaps you鈥檝e ever taken. This feature is more interesting than anything, but if you have 3D Touch, you can also peek at all the photos from one geographic location in a list by holding your finger lightly over a number.

accounts

4.聽Toggle between multiple accounts. If you happen to have multiple Instagram accounts 鈥 perhaps because you manage one for work, or because you have a secret one you use for stalking your frenemies聽(no judgment!) 鈥 here鈥檚 the trick you鈥檝e been waiting for. Instead of having to log in and out of your accounts, you can now access all of them at once. From your profile, you鈥檒l see a little arrow beside your username. Tapping on that will give you a drop down of all your other accounts.

likes

5.聽See all your likes. EVER. You spend a lot of time liking your friends鈥 photos, and they spend just as much time liking yours (we hope). If you鈥檝e ever been curious about just how many likes you鈥檝e gotten and what you鈥檝e liked over the years, you can actually see that from within the app. Simply go to Settings > Posts You鈥檝e Liked to access a feed with all the images and videos you鈥檝e ever pushed that little heart for.

isabelle-boomerang

6.聽Create a GIF with Boomerang. Instagram rolled out their GIF-maker Boomerang last year, and while you do have to download it as a separate app (which you can also use independent of IG), you can access the app from within Instagram. Simply hit the camera button like you鈥檙e going to create a new post. From the bottom right hand corner, you鈥檒l see an infinity symbol. Tapping on that will open up Boomerang, which allows you to create your own GIF with just your smartphone.

layout-instagram

7. Create a collage with Layout. Layout is another app that works in conjunction with Instagram and you also have to download that separately. Layout allows you to create simple collages for your posts, and it鈥檚 the other icon at the bottom right of your post screen.
