It works to upload photos from my android phone to a shutterfly group created by someone else after a trip. Easy to select and fast to upload. From my phone I can't reorder photos or select photo for my "album", or add captions, or edit photos. No message function. Can't see email addresses of other members of the group. It's just a delivery system to add photos. I must use the full version from a computer to do everything else.
The iso version is way different than the Android! If you are using this for team sports and you have android you will not have the "sign up" or get all the conversation portion of the app that iso has. My child got left out of activities because I didnt get the notification on the android version. Big disadvantage. I have no idea why they would creat an app so different that doesn't even have the same options as ios.
This app sucks as a team site. It doesn't send emails to everyone, bounces many and customer service (which is in India and lousy) says they know its a problem and no eta (you are trying to get information to parents and no eta?). New tabs added won't show up on my phone. If I had to do it again, I wouldn't.
Save your frustration and find another messaging system if you intend to use the app frequently. They have invested all of their efforts in the iOS app and seemingly none on the Droid version. I am the admin of a A butterfly Share site and have used its iOS app for over a year without a problem... But this isn't the case with the Android app. It does not allow for use of the messaging system via the app whatsoever- it gives an error message each time I want to view or send messages. Disappointing and not functional.
It should just have everything the full website does. I can't edit recurring events at once. The app needs work, but it is still useful since it is easy to send a group message. As if sending an email or group text isn't just as easy though. I find myself going to the website in desktop mode in Firefox just to get anything done.
The Android version is so basic. Doesn't have any of the functionality you find on the I-OS version or desktop. It constantly freezes when trying to read messages. To the point that I just go online ....kinda useless. Please update!
