Not a bad app until recently. Using OnePlus 11 device, you can't upload from the app. You have to log into the site and go from there. Brought this up a few times but nothing. Not worth leaving over, but also not worth the effort extra steps when there's so much easier ways to showcase photos. If this could be fixed it would definitely change the score, but unfortunately, it's an unfortunate inconvenience with simpler routes available

Had this app for years & finally (after many awesome marketing emails) l splurged for a subscription (which ain't cheap), now I have all kinds of issues. Inability to upload photos via app is a HUGE one. I appreciate the free month they've offered, but the response from support to "stay tuned for our next update" when I can't upload anything is insufficient. While looking up how to rearrange photos I found out that as of 2017 that's "coming soon" which doesnt bode well. Keep ya posted!! 💩🫰🏻

Honestly it has a lot of potential to replace Instagram. I love how lowkey it is and I like the filters offered and the gallery layout. However its impossible to upload a user pic and the about me section doesnt show up. You also cant change your display name. In fact, everything you change in your settings does not show up. It's also really laggy. If they fix those problems, I'd rate it a 5.
