Photos held hostage for annual fee

I started artkive years ago when it was free, then one day they decided to put their pocketbook first and their customers second. They informed their users there would now be an annual fee (over $100) to continue to save their photos. If you want your photos back without the fee you had to get on your pc and download each photo individually within 30 days. Once you cancel your membership they delete all your photos!! They like to tell you what a great deal membership actually is because your annual fee goes towards a photo-book, but photo books cost in the $150+ range so I ended up paying over $200 for the ability to keep my digital photos for a year and make a book. You can just as easily use one of the many free photo apps and make a photo book for $30. I gave it two stars because taking a photo and having the ability to assign your child’s name and age is a handy feature. You can still do this elsewhere without the financial hit. I just think of this as an underhanded company.

Horrible change in business model

This was a great photo storage app for artwork but their new “membership” requirement and pricing is ridiculous. If you want to spend a few hundred a year on a single photo book of art then great! Or you can just upload the pics to a Shutterfly album (or any other photo storage app) and make a $30 photo book there. When I emailed their customer service about my complaints I got a super nasty response. Now that I’m here reading the responses to the reviews, I’m seriously shocked!! WHAT KIND OF CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONDS LIKE THIS?! Artkive should take some of the money they’re making from this price gouging scheme and hire a legit PR person, they must have teenagers sending these responses. I would advise NOT using the this app, I don’t think this company will be around long enough to actually deliver anything.

Annual fee???

When I started using the app it was free and there was no (or at least no obvious) indication that the service would ever cost money. Functionally the app is fantastic but it will cost me $3 a month to keep storing my pictures. That’s $648 over the 18 years my kids are young. Why can’t they just show me advertisements or something and keep the app free? It makes me nervous to keep uploading art as there is no guarantee that the prices won’t go up. I will probably quit and download all my art before it gets unmanageable. I hope there is a way to download all the pics in bulk as there are probably over 100 pieces of art between my 3 kids. Disappointing for sure.
