I love the idea behind the purpose for this app but it keeps crashing every time I try to upload a photo or scroll through portfolios to look at other pictures.

Keep on getting the “not authenticated” notification on my phone. Can’t do anything even though I’ve logged in before and submitted photos.

Weak execution with good intentions


The idea of challenges is a good one. Problem is, why recreate Instagram. This should use a users existing IG photos submitted to this from that feed.
In addition, you must create an account before finding out more information about this. There should be a more information given before having to sign up. The only upside is the ability to easily deactivate an account, which I did after 20 minutes after checking this out.
