Almost perfect except... I live in a big city and get requests every once in a while. Finally got 1 really close to home, almost missed the cutoff but lucky enough to get it uploaded. Didn't think anyone would want the video but a few hours later I was notified someone purchased my video and I got funds the next day!! Woohoo! I read the terms, I understand I lose the rights to the video but I don't see how people would get upset with that - definitely a great app to make extra $$ randomly! Just wish I could choose my locations...
Ok for now. I got really nice video but by the time the video finished uploading the time was over. It took forever to upload over wifi. It was a waste of my time. I don't mind the app but needs more info, like how long should your video be for it to upload fast. Overall i love the app. I haven't got paid on it yet but will see. I did my second assignment today and i got to upload it on their website.
Better Know News The way you make money is to listen to your local radio station (news talk is best) who has news. When they start talking about a place, go get video of that place. The tv news guys will be looking overnight. Listen to the story and try to get a close shot, steady and about 30 seconds. I've made some decent cash and only one for an assignment from Stringer. Would have gotten 5 stars if when your phone times out and locks screen while you have camera paused, you didn't lose that video.
No location radius? Are you kidding? Pro: Very simple interface. Con: cannot adjust location radius. I live in a small town but travel often to the big city (and can on demand) and would like to get notifications for that city. Short sighted of the developers not to allow that.
App redux Eearily similar to an app that came out last year, only to disappear when they were able to sell, and move on to better things, leaving all off their fans with a 'Sorry. C'ya.' But hey, I'll give a shot. If I am wrong, I will revise review.
Got an assignment within a few days of installing, unfortunately, couldn't get to it in time. Stringr App is consumes a lot of battery power and needs to be optimized. My phone used to stay over 50% charged all day until I installed this app, now must be charged by mid-afternoon. I'm keeping it but still needs work and polish.
Improved reliability of uploads
