This app needs lots of work
I was very happy to see the ad for this app in HGTV. I Was excited by some of the features like "Find Your Style", however, the app doesn't retain your choices or results and when I re-enter them it returns different results. So inconsistency is an issue.
Navigation through the app is not fluid and it's difficult at times to figure out what you're suppose to do to get where you want to go.
Also, the app suffers frequent crashes at random times. This is inconvenient to say the least and seriously diminishes any positive aspects of the app over all. Especially when the app, as I mentioned before, doesn't retain your previous style choices.
So, to sum up, it doesn't matter how beautiful the pictures are, the apps inconsistent behavior, difficult navigation, and instability make it a tedious and frustrating experience.
I'll try again after you've had some time to work out the bugs. good luck.
Beautiful + inspiring app
Well-designed and fun app that inspires with beautiful photography and fun features. The Style Finder curates galleries that matched my style, providing a lot of inspiration for future projects. I love that there are so many ways to browse images – the search feature, style finder, galleries, etc. – and that you are able to curate your own galleries and save notes for each image!
One suggestion – more galleries! The search feature helps to narrow down the selection of images, but I'd love to see more curated groups based on HGTV shows, experts, and styles. Other than that, this app is excellent. I recommend to all interested in gaining some interior design inspiration.
What's the point?
I downloaded this app with the anticipation of seeing beautiful rooms from vibrant, exciting HGTV designers. Instead I was given a meager number of ho-hum rooms from ho-hum designers. Not one image of a Sarah Richardson room, and she is far and away the best designer on the network. What a letdown.
The functionality of the app itself is also disappointing. VERY slow response, when it responds at all. I often had to "press and hold" to get things to load rather than simply tap. And the search feature is a colossal joke. Apparently it is using "or" logic when a phrase is is entered in the search field, possibly in an attempt to insure that the search doesn't return a message that no results match the query. I would much rather get that than images that aren't even closely related to the phrase I searched.
Sorry HGTV, this app is just another example of how out of touch you are with what people really want from you.
