What's New in Version 2.5.1
* Minor bug fixes
Keeps Getting Better
I am impressed with this app. They continually improve and expand upon what it can do. This latest version has added an upload feature from right inside the app. In previous versions I had to upload by going to the site. At this point the only feature I wish was a little better, was the ability to search for specific photographers. You can do this quite easily from the website but it is more difficult in the app.
Overall a great app for photographers that want there BEST work to be seen and for anyone who wants to see great photography and photographers!
Could improve workflow
It's a great app for viewing amazing photos on their site - that's really why you use it, there's no alternative.
I'd like to better know what photos are Fine Art (composites/photoshopped) vs "Normal" photos.
The notifications were sometimes doubled.
Would be nice to see upload rate, rate of photos entering upcoming, etc.
I really like the app and the service but this update completely removed a category. It would have been nice to mention this in the release notes. It took over an hour of app troubleshooting and an email to the dev to get my answer. Completely agree with an earlier comment that transparency goes a long way. Not cool guys, not cool.
