    Last time i checked my instagram (lumia 950xl) used 3.26 GB of phone memory.
    Is there a way to clear memory after using it? I asked my friend who use it daily on android about memory
    and we saw about 50MB used. Even on my desktop,after one quick browse memory got up to 252MB used.
    I uninstalled it from my phone for now,since only way i found to clear memory on my phone is reset the app.

    Yes, this is a known issue with Instagram. In fact, I'm a bit surprised that it is still an issue now. It's been months since I used a Windows Phone, but even before leaving WP there have several "updates" to Instagram that were purported to resolve that issue. In the end, it seems like uninstalling and reinstalling Instagram is the only sure solution.

    P.S. A quick check in iOS: Instagram is using 361.5 MB in my iPhone, next to OneDrive and Microsoft Word.

    Oh no, we don't need to reinstall it,we can reset apps now on WM.
    Only bad thing in that is logging in every time. Poor coding .

    This seems to be a bug that Instagram needs to address. The only solution I've found is to uninstall and reinstall the app.
    I actually do this once a month. Hassle

    ^ How do you reset the app on the Anniversary Update?
    As far as I know, the reset option will come with the Creator's Update.

    This workaround is a price to pay I guess for a stabler app than Facebook. If only Facebook can be more like Instagram.

    Sadly, the casual users won't know this.
