**** for supporting suicide prevention
I've been reading PS online (for free) for years and thought that it was appropriate to buy the paid app. No, the high price tag does not reflect the amount of content within the app, which is well-designed and will hopefully be updated periodically. But, remember when you are considering whether to buy that PS is a major supporter of suicide prevention and that this is where their profits go.
Also, if you are expecting an app like the last one, it isn't. And if we are honest, we wouldn't really want that again (remember when every law enforcement agency in America descended upon the app because of the content of some of the secrets?). There is a reason that we need Frank to sort through the secrets that should be posted and those that are not for public consumption.
If you decide to buy the app, enjoy the interesting multimedia experience and new secrets, and feel good that you are supporting a good cause, but don't leave bad feedback because it isn't like the old PS app. It isn't supposed to be.
Do the secrets ever get updated?
I love postsecret and have the book.. But this app is pretty awful. Very difficult to sort through all the secrets because it's a weird interface shaped like a giant ball.. I mean- I get it, and it's clever.. but any wrong click will take you to the other side of the ball or way far away from the secret you were trying to read and is pretty hard to find it again. I wish they would at least update the secrets. I never would have bought it if I knew they didn't.
Also- there's a feature that tells you which secrets you haven't read. It takes extra clicks to get it to recognize that you read the secret (and sometimes the extra click just takes you to another secret across the ball. Ugh) It's almost always wrong, as well. I get super excited thinking "oh! They updated it!" Nope. Same secrets. Just didn't click them the right way to make it recognize that I already read it.
I really wanted to love it :( I'm sorry.
Loved it! For the first week..
Much like everyone else I loved it! At first.. I managed to stretch out all the secrets bc I was only reading the main secrets then I went back and seen the extras behind the main strand annnnd then after that I listened to all of the verbal secrets until it started to repeat. This is an AWESOME app, and I realize I should be happy with that but I also really hope there will be updates so that either all these secrets can be swapped out with something new or even new stuff added in between. I know Frank goes on tour with PS, and he does the books, and the site and and and and... But I'm sure by now he's also got plenty of ppl helping him. Anywho.. For now that's why my vote stays at 2 stars.
Frank we all love PS! we'd just like to see more, this is coming from those of us who can't afford to buy all of the PS books or live close enough to make it to a show. Thank you again for all you do!
