I’ve never understood why there is no Instagram share extension for sharing pictures directly from the Photos app on my iPhone. In many cases, I prefer editing photos with apps like Afterlight or Polarr, both of which support app extensions and allow me to edit without ever having to leave the Photos app. Luckily, even
