Can appium be used to automate any actions that can be done within the Instagram app?

I run a digital agency and I have been using automation tools like Follow Liker, FollowPlanner, MassPlanner and Jarvee to automate specific actions within Instagram, but these tools are not providing me with enough control.

Specifically, I would love to be able to scrape data from within instagram such as notifications and direct messages. I would like to be able to send DM’s. I use proxies that match my clients addresses, so this would need to be possible as well.

I am thinking a tool like this would be ideal but I don’t yet have enough knowledge to bridge the gap. I would be willing to hire someone to help walk me through some of this stuff!

Does anyone know if this is even possible? Or is appium only for testing?

Only for testing :slight_smile:
