What can be found in Best Nine
Your best photos and reels in one collage post
Best Nine doesn't collect only your most liked Instagram photos but also reels! We all know how the reels became trending during the past months on Instagram, so it would be a shame not to include them in your Best Nine collage, right?
NOTE! Best Nine collects only the photos and reels posted in your Main feed. It doesn't collect the reels posted only in the Reels tab.
When you are about to create your Best Nine collage, you can choose whether you want to get your best posts of the year 2023, 2022, or 2021.
No log-in required
We don't want to obtain any extra personal data, so we have decided not to ask our users to enter their logging info. Instead, the Best Nine will ask you just for your username, and that's all.
If the privacy of your Instagram account is set to private, Best Nine will instruct you how to temporarily switch to public. Remember that it is always safer to do some extra little steps than share the password anywhere outside Instagram.
Even more, no app can technically collect likes count from private Instagram profiles. The generated posts would be just randomly selected photos and reels, no matter how many likes they gained.

We know the waiting time may make you feel impatient, even though Best Nine works fast. Keep an eye on the Progress bar, which informs how much longer you are from receiving your accurately generated best posts of the year. Once it shows 100%, you are ready to access the collage by tapping on the Best Nine collage template layout or tapping the black Generate my Best Nine button underneath.
