When you are looking at a photo, and are possibly many photos deep in browsing, there is no home button. You literally have to hit the back button x number of times to backtrack all the way back to the home page where you can search and access your account. How did this ever pass UX testing? Hey, at least it's free.

Is anyone else finding it annoying to search a specific theme and not see any photos until you scroll down through 50 that have absolutely nothing to do with your key words? 🙄 Then, after finally adding a photo or video to a folder, it automatically shows the same photos from the top again. Maybe it's a glitch, but it's aggravating. Definitely needs a tweak on the search feature. I don't want to use popular pics and videos that have nothing to do with what I actually want. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Sorry to hear you're unsatisfied with the app's search feature. Would you mind letting us know what specific theme you are looking for so we can pass it on to our curation/production team. You can send us some relevant screenshots of your search results at appsupport@pexels.com so we can take a closer look. Appreciate your feedback!

It works, OK. You can't edit the name of a collection. The "downloads" section remains blank no matter how many items are downloaded. Searching for the title of a photo doesn't bring it up. There's no way, that i have found, to browse the feed of the artists um "following". Also, there's no way to contact support through the app or the main website. I really hate that I needed to write a review, and hope to maybe receive some support?
