Ratings and Reviews
Dropbox sync feature is missing
Be careful.... you may need to look elsewhere for a portfolio.
I specifically wanted to use the sync feature and it is not available in this current release. None of the documentation mentions this when in fact this is considered a "Key Feature".
The other feature I wanted to use was "Web Publish". However after discovering that this required hosting the page on their web service I will not use this feature. I expected to be able to upload the created pages to my own site. I do not want to lose control of my images and there is no easy way to delete the pages from the service except uploading a blank gallery.
I attempted to reply to the support email and it was rejected due to a miss configured server. So I have replied here instead.
Here is the answer to my support case:
I'm sorry for this but because we had to completely rebuild our Dropbox integration prior to them turning off their version 1.0 API in June.
In the process we did not add in the sync function because of effort and complexity involved.
However we understand that a lot of people found this specific feature very useful when creating a new gallery, so we are currently reviewing a different way to add back the functionality for an update in the near future.
I'd like to point out that Dropbox integration is still available in our app. The comment title and quote is a little out of context because what is under discussion here is not our main Dropbox integration which we have recently completely rewritten to keep up with Dropbox latest version, rather it is a specialised feature that only a small number of users were using. Also we received more support calls from people who found the advanced feature confusing than we did from complaints of its removal. I'm sorry that this caused you a problem and I'll modify our documentation to make the current Dropbox capability more clearly described.
I’ve searched forever and purchased many portfolio apps over the last few years. There is a Huge need for a professional portfolio viewer that is 1) high resolution capable and 2) a simple clean interface.
I believe many professionals use their iPad to showcase their work to prospective clients and for professional critiquing.
I thought this would be that app. When working it is exactly what a needed, note I said when it’s working. The app has just to many glitches, it’s pretty basic so I can’t understand why the developers can’t solve the issues. No matter is you stroll slowly or quick it will display images twice or skip over others. It’s completely hit or miss.
When you hand your iPod over for the client to review you have one chance at a first impression, I’m tired of making excuses for the app.
Like I said there is a need for an app like this, please guys update and make it what it could be.
I'm sorry you have had problems, we are working on an update that specifically addresses the issue you have mentioned.
Ok but not great
This is definitely not worth 10$. But I think it’s the only decent portfolio app out there. Wish there were more options for design. Zooming in doesn’t work properly, it jumps to a corner of the image.
The only thing this app offers that’s useful is the ability to name your work and nave a title page.
Otherwise I would have just used a photo album.
