It's good as far as just exclusively photography content, that's what I need as a photographer myself. But I wish the app would WORK. it was fine for a couple days, but now it just keeps saying "unable to reach servers." I've reinstalled, forced stopped the app, everything. Apparently the servers are awful

It's a great app! It encourages you to go out and shoot more and get feedback on your work! In time I think you gain experience and it's great interacting with other artists. Though there is a lot of content posted that doesn't seem legit. Its strange how pictures of dirt on the ground get 500 likes where a picture of the milky way gets 40 likes. Just seems a bit strange. Overall great app, easy interface.

Great app with a few bugs. Tap a thumbnail and rotate the phone to get a landscape view, the app switches to a different photo. Rotate back upright and it switches photos again. You can do this ad-nauseam, switching photos with every change of phone orientation. When zooming in, the photo gets 'stuck' at max zoom in the top left corner of the photo. In this view I can't swipe to another photo or drop back to thumbnails. Only way out is to crash the app and restart.
