Foundation of the app is just not there yet. Launching a new platform is difficult in its self, but I feel the app just does not know what it wants to be. What I mean is it is advertised as a story telling app, yet, it is attempting to be another video platform, from what I understand. It just does not feel ready to be used by anyone who wants to post videos to it. The story side however, is fine, the striking is a cool way to make a story interactive to read. But, with ads, which are essential to making money, are sometimes abrupt, even with the recent updates, along with random crashes, make it not a pleasant user experience. The videos cannot keep ahead, causing it to buffer on a 1GB connection, even on the web version. However, I feel it has potential and might be good one day, just not now.

Within a couple of hours of using the app, I noticed a couple of things it could improve. First thing is the performance, which is a bit lacking since I sometimes experience delays whenever I tap on the like button or the support button. Second, finding creators is a bit confusing when I first opened the app, but it took a bit of getting used to once I found out how to do so. Other than that, I'm looking forward to this app's potential!

cool app. I've noticed that when you click on videos the ads take up your entire screen, kind of like a mobile game and its inconvenient. I also noticed that when you have auto rotate off if you put the videos on full screen then they will be vertical instead of horizontal which is annoying. The app is a little slow but its fine. However it's a fun app, the design is simple and easy while also being like Twitter and YouTube combined with a dash of stories involved.
