Alex, We use Latergram, Hootsuite, some other custom built applications and will be using foursixty soon. They are going to have a scheduling ability that is going to be amazing. We don't use Instagress unfortunately so I am unable to comment on that.
If you are not familiar with foursixty it is an app that allows you to sell from your Instagram. Example of it in action with one of our Insta accounts here: http://www.bikiniluxe.com/pages/buy-it-now
