Instagram gets offline mode for Android users

It was also revealed that Instagram had 600 million monthly active users across the globe in June 2016, up from 500 million in September 2015. With this support, users will be able to browse through Instagram's preloaded feed and can even like or save posts even without Internet access.

So, for example, you could like a photo and leave a comment on it, put the phone back in your pocket, and both interactions will be applied to the photo once the phone picks up a data signal again.
