Things need to be fixed, and it’s confusing.

I like the app, and it is a great way to share photos, but it’s confusing. For an example, I just made an account and I’ve had trouble figuring out how to do many things such as uploading photos. When I click on the “Upload” button, it takes me to my photo album on my iPhone and when I try to click on one of the albums it won’t do anything. When I try to exit from the upload photo page it won’t let me so, I have to exit the app completely and go back on. Also, I have been struggling to add a photo onto the backdrop. Whatever picture I choose, a message pops up saying that the “Cover Upload failed”. Other than those few things the app is okay and I think that those few things should be fixed immediately.

If you enjoy random unneeded changes....

500px likes to just randomly change things for no reason. The newest version is a perfect example. The notifications section is now hidden so perfectly that ushers cant find it. Go to home then look away from the buttons lineup ... look in the upper banner for the gray on gray, nearly invisible icon of a bell. You can ONLY find it on the home section

While we're at it. You may not know you're in the home section since the button bar doesn't highlight the active section. The selfie button for 14 year olds that was added to a "professional art photography" site app appears to be the active section even when it isn't.

Recent programming changes at 500px indicate that they are more interested in being another instagram than they are an art photography site.

Good But Could Be Amazing

Unfortunately, evening gets compared to Instagram regarding photo sites. What I like about 500px is that I get to see a considerable amount of photographers from overseas. I also enjoy the feature that allows one to see what camera and settings were used to take the image. There are so many people on 500px using older cameras, and getting amazing shots. I love it. It’s the mind behind the lens, not the camera body!
The only downside is the implementation of tags as apposed to Instagram. Instagram has this down to a science, but I’m sure it is proprietary, so no blame on 500px, but it would be nice.
