What's New in Version 2.7.1
- Bug fixes
Newest greatest Innovation
This app has the potential to be the next Instagram. This is the best photography app if you are looking to view some hd photos. The app displays all high quality photos in almost every topic imaginable. I didn't come across one low quality photo. IF EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR A WALLPAPERS APP THEN, THIS IS THE ONE!!! Forget the "ios wallpapers" apps, or any other wallpapers/background app, because this on does the job, although you can't save it, you CAN screenshot any photo.
THINGS TO IMPROVE:
First of all id like to start off by saying that I do not want any updates to come for this app, because it is already the best it's going to be and, there is always the chance that when the update comes out, it may not be as good...
SECOND, have an option to save photos to camera roll.
Again this is not too much of a big problem, especially when it runs into copyright issues, so it is what it is.
Thanks so much I can't believe I found this app to be so nice, because I usually end up deleting apps like this if they don't live up to what they are advertising.
This app beats Instagram or any other photo gallery app by a long shot. Great pics with detailed information about camera used, f-stop, shutter speed, etc. It's more of an art gallery app than a social media app, so you can't even really compare it to Instagram. Sleek layout. Easy navigation. Love to kill time looking through gallery after gallery. Highly recommend! Speed is not an issue for me, so I don't know what others are complaining about. Get this! You'll love it if you are a photographer or artist.
Just downloaded the app today on my new iPhone 5s. I played with it a bit at work and it seemed that the notifications had trouble reconciling from page to page. Now I'm sitting here waiting on a friend, trying to beat the boredom by surfing 500px and this thing is super slow...like really, really slow. I'm very surprised because the main site runs pretty seamlessly. I hope they get the issue worked out soon.
