Lacking in features...

The app is decent in terms of visuals and layout but it is severely lacking in features. It allows you to upload new images, view images in your portfolio, informs you when a newly uploaded image has been rejected or approved and when an image in your portfolio has been sold, and gives you stats on which images have been sold and how many sales you’ve had in a given day or month. What it doesn’t do is allow you to edit the descriptions of, add or remove tags from, or delete images from your portfolio, view detailed stats about your sales (for instance, what part of the world the sale originated from), view approved videos in your portfolio, and change settings in your account. This app could be so much more if it incorporated more of the functionality found on the desktop website. The way it is right now, it’s only good for checking up on what you’ve uploaded image-wise and how many sales you’ve had in a given day or month.

It’s okay

The app is okay.

There is no way to get any data about your photos (i.e, how many times they were clicked, where they were purchased, the key word that was used to find the photo, etc. ) and there’s no way to contact anyone from Shutterstock to get support. They provide an email address; however, that posts it to a forum of experienced users. Shutterstock does not provide any level of customer support at all which is very frustrating. There’s no where to submit requests for app adjustments. The customer support/service is absolutely non-existent.
