Hi, we’re Patreon. We believe people who make things should get paid for the value they give to the world.

Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. Fans pay creators of all kinds a subscription amount of their choice in exchange for exclusive experiences and behind-the-scenes content. Creators get a meaningful revenue stream and fans get closer to the creators they love most. We think that’s the definition of a win-win.

Patreon’s iPhone app brings creators and fans together like never before.

* Stay up to date on the latest from the creators you support
* Discover and follow new creators
* Interact with your favorite creators in real-time when they host live chats

* Create and share new content with your patrons
* Leave comments and replies on your posts, including photo comments
* Build a long-term relationship with your fans with actionable insights.

Needs more work, please

I really love the idea of finding and patronizing through Patreon creators that are doing great work out there. No problem there.
What I would like to see is more flexibility with the app. For instance searching a creators posts. Some of the creators that I follow make many posts and refer back to other posts. I have not found a way in the app to search those. Also many of my the creators do video or audio. The app does not let you leave the page or even turn off the screen(for putting in your pocket). It also doesn’t save your place on the vid/audio file if you mistakenly turn off your phone or hit a button while holding it in your hand trying to listen. It might do a bunch of stuff but for me if it doesn’t do these things then it doesn’t really work how I need it to work. Thanks

Why is this app rated so highly? Use the website...

I seriously don’t understand why this app is rated so highly. It’s pretty terrible from both a usability aspect as well design and maybe even coding.

It never correctly shows you how many creators/artists you’re supporting. It’s high near impossible to change your tier level or cancel. It’s very confusing. There are parts of the app that clearly kick you out the website, which is fine, but sometimes you’re literally entering in the same information in the app just to be sent to a webpage with blanks! Looking for someone in particular? Good luck with that, since the search function isn’t good at finding people. One of the nice things about the app, is that you can actually download certain files. They remain inside the app to prevent you pirating out to the rest of the internet, which I completely understand. However, every time they change app, or change the website too I think, all your downloads disappear. Good luck finding them again!

At least they’re slowly fixing app, bug by bug, to their credit. The app finally handles playing videos well. Turning your phone to horizontal and back during videos caused problems, but no longer. Still, the app is really not ready and seems like it’s stuck in beta testing. You’re better off just going to the Patreon website.

No Functionality

I recently signed up for a podcast on patreon. I normally listen to podcasts on stitcher as it’s a simple easy experience. But this one won’t show up for me On stitcher, so I have to go through the patreon app. Unfortunately the person I’ve subscribed to has 400 podcasts and the one I’m trying to listen to is one of the first. I can get to it by searching for it on a web browser. But when I try to play it through a web browser (on the official site!) the podcast literally stops every 30 seconds. However I also can’t get it to open in the app. I can find no search function for specific episodes in the app. No list function. No favorite function that would show me even the ones I favorite on this app. The only way I can tell to get to this podcast in this app is literally to scroll through a feed of 400 podcasts which only load 10 at a time. Am I missing something or is this seriously how this app functions? It doesn’t function at all? I can’t believe how much time I’ve already wasted just trying to get a podcast I payed for already to play. Definitely no functionality allowing me to message the creator either. I can’t believe this is supposed to be the official app of a platform supposedly about helping creators easily connect with their audiences.
