Ratings and Reviews
Good addition to a personal creative workflow
I have been a 53 paper user creating illustrations, design drafts for logos, wireframes etc for many years, along with other creation tools such as Procreate and Adobe Fresco. Working on each of these projects requires a lot of reference images / videos form a variety of sources. While previously using a combination of Pinterest and apple photos, I find this little app standing out for being simplistic and light weighted, allowing me to quickly organizing a handful of stuff for a specific project at hand. I love it that it does not offer much complex features, and it stands alone so I don’t have to pollute my own family photo albums when searching for references of Sphinx and Dragons.
There’re certain “basic” interactions I would love to see in this app that would really brighten the day for me. E.g Arrange layout of a board via drag and drop, make a certain image larger or smaller, using drag to move stuff to another board, use gesture to return to previous navigation steps. Etc. I have loved how paper provides affordances comparable to a real sketchbook via paper flipping and opening / closing gestures, and thus look for similar features in Collect, being a digital Clipping book equivalent.
All in all I enjoy using this tool so far and look forward to more improvements. I would recommend it to anyone who are in search of a pocket clip book in its most simple form.
Nice alternative to similar apps
I typically use Dropbox and Pinterest for similar purposes, but I thought I'd give Collect a try for organizing boards that are hopefully easier to access for others. My partner and I are moving in together, and I'm using a dedicated board to post inspiration and links to products.
While I've only viewed it logged in on my phone so far, it seems promising.
Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with one basic, major feature: deleting items. Even though I click to delete and then confirm when prompted, items do not delete from boards + single item views. My workaround is to "move" these items instead to a "trash" board which actually removes them from the other board/views. Pretty weird flaw, though. I even updated a bit ago to see if it squashed this bug, but no luck.
UX-wise, it would also make more sense to have the "boards" tab be the first, default screen before the "all items" one at the bottom of the interface. Since the primary functionality revolves around themed collections of info, there's little use in seeing content from all boards smooshed together when launched.
Otherwise, cool idea, and I have loved WeTransfer on its own for ages, so we'll see how it goes!
Not A Good First Impression
Yesterday was my first time using this app. I needed to send a number of files - both photos and videos - to a client. The client requested that I use WeTransfer. All my files were on my iPhone, this app is where I was directed to WeTransfer from my phone (Due to my profession I send and receive photo files all the time so I am well acquainted with using WeTransfer service on a computer. This was a first trying to do it from my phone). I started trying to send at 7pm, the files were due by 9pm. I did not make the deadline.
App kept having errors and freezing intermittently.
App also lost the carefully curated order that I had the files in. So I tried to make image notes but I only made a few because that process was also too slow and too cumbersome.
I thought that was the point of the Boards was to be able to put things in order like a moodboard? Not only did it not preserve the order in which the files were uploaded there was no fast and easy way to put the files in the order in which I wanted. Nothing was fast nothing was easy. The app might be great if I had time to sit and learn and figure it out but it certainly was not intuitive or fluid for a first use. I paid for Collect Pro just in case I needed it because of the files that I was sending. But needless to say I won’t be keeping the subscription I can’t imagine I would be trying to use this app again.
