    "AMI DuOS was great to use when you wanted to be on your computer or tablet. It was fast and easy. I was able to go to my Instagram on my laptop which runs Windows 10. It was so nice to finely see Instagram on a larger screen than my phone. As of a few months ago, AMI DuOS has gone. They have stated that they could not keep up with the Android and Windows app and updates. Therefore it is cannot be the best way to use Instagram on a PC anymore. "
