ShortStack, a self-service custom app design tool, has added two feature enhancements to its platform: an Instagram integration for contest entry, and a promotion entry approval via email.
When the Instagram integration is enabled, photo contest entrants can choose photos from their Instagram feeds to enter. ShortStack users can even require photos to use a hashtag to limit entries. This option joins ShortStack’s other three photo contest entry options: local files, by email and from Facebook.
This integration comes at a perfect time for the holidays when businesses want to boost their social media presence. Instagram is one of the most popular and oft-used photo apps, making the Instagram integration a great way to engage fans.

ShortStack has also made it easier for users to approve promotion entries by adding an approval option to email notices. Businesses can set up their promotions so that they receive an email notification for every entry. With the approve entries from email notices feature enabled, entries can be approved without having to log in to ShortStack.
Freelance designers, agencies and large businesses running promotions on Facebook will find this feature extremely helpful because they can set up the client or a coworker to monitor contest entries. ShortStack discusses this feature in-depth in its blog, Socially Stacked.
