[NOTE: Panoramiq will only work with Business Instagram Accounts. This is a requirement that Instagram makes, and is the only way in which we can access their APIs on your behalf.]
Panoramiq Insights is a Hootsuite app that allows you to easily analyze and generate reports for your Instagram Accounts.

From the Analytics menu, you can choose from a variety of analytics reports to view and save.
Account analytics includes the current number of followers, the number of posts you've made as well as follower demographics for age/gender, country, city and language.
Activity analytics includes analytics for post views and post engagement over a period of time.
Post analytics allows you to analyze your posts to find your best performing posts.
Story analytics allows you to analyze your stories to discover what performs best. NOTE: Due to stories only having a life of 24 hours, we can only get data for stories that are currently active and stories you add in the future.
All analytics allows you to view and generate a single report that includes sections for all of the above analytics, i.e. Account, Activity, Posts and Stories.
The analytics popups have a couple of options you can use. The account menu allows you to switch to a different account to generate a report for. Clicking on the calendar icon allows you to specify a period of time to analyze results for. (NOTE: this is will only appear in the activity, posts and stories analytics popups) Clicking the download icon allows you to download the report in either PDF or CSV formats.
Search options allows you to filter/sort what you see in-stream. You can choose to view your media sorted by Date, Number of Likes, Number of Comments, Total Engagement (Likes + Comments) or Number of Views. You can also choose to sort the results in ascending order, i.e. from lowest to highest, or in descending order, i.e. from highest to lowest.
You can also specify a Stream Name that will be displayed in the app's menubar.
Once you have your stream setup, and your posts are being displayed, there are a variety of in-stream options which you can use:
Clicking your username will open up a new browser tab on Instagram displaying your Instagram account. Clicking on the time will open this particular post on Instagram.
At the bottom of each item, there are four icons:
Starting on the left side, the first three icons display results for number of likes, number of comments and number of views in that order. The fourth icon is the external link icon. Click it to open this post on Instagram.
