What can be found in TOP 9
Best photos and reels
TOP 9 got even better this year! It doesn't collect only your most liked 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 the TOP 9 collage, right?
NOTE! TOP 9 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 TOP 9 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 TOP 9 will ask you just for your username, and that's all.
If the privacy of your Instagram account is set to private, TOP 9 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 TOP 9 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 any available template.
11 various pre-made layout templates
Our team of professional designers created a unique collection of the TOP 9 templates. Each one has a unique layout and modern design and can be customized further as you wish directly in the app. You can decide which template layout you will go for to make the best match for the overall look of your Instagram feed. Do you fancy all of them? Not a problem! Feel free to use as many as you like without limits.
