Customer Reviews

Don't bother, unless you are popular

If I could rate this less than one star I would.

The good: it's a nice concept. The UI is clean. There are some lovely photos.

The bad: you submit your photos by tagging them on IG. Unless you already have hundreds of followers, your photo will never make it to the showcase page. And in 2.0, they're going to charge you $2/month. You can happily live in obscurity on IG for free, rather than pay for obscurity.

Also, you can just go look at photos in the IG tag #ifshowcaseme. That's where they pull them for their showcase.

Oh, and when they say there won't be any photos of food? Yeah, right. I just saw two in a batch of 25.

Cool concept

I give it 5 just on concept. I would love to use this app all day everyday for inspiration but it's in some sort of transition where they need help on kick starter to make it better. I suggest if you can to donate because this app is amazing and there needs to be something like this. Make Instagram about photography again!!!

Lovely app

It's a lovely app and I am really enjoying the layout. One thing that I wish was available was the ability to click on the names and tags mentioned in the comments. So far, you can only click on the names of the people that leave comments and not on mentioned names and I hope that this ability makes it into the future updates.
