Good app

Finding 500px 100% over Instagram. I was constantly bombarded with adverts, people following me to follow them back and then unfollowing, direct messages asking me if I wanted to buy anything from 1000 to 10,000 likes and followers for a cost. I’m not looking for followers I’m just enjoying posting and a few people coming back with genuine comments.
Only complaint I have is when you go onto somebody’s posted picture and the app seems quite slow when you want to like the photo, I am assuming this is because people are uploading in the high resolution as it doesn’t happen on every photo.

Uploads are slow and confusing.

Signed up to get off Instagram.
Upload from iOS apps are slow. UX is poor.
When I Click on upload button almost 10 sec wait for any photos to appear.
Why are you creating your own photo picker and one whose scrolling is clunky. If you scroll up it jumps for some reason.
UX for this screen is confusing. If I choose multiselect the image at the top should go away. You can’t unselect all. At least One is always selected. It pre selects the first pic but if I scroll down and pick 9 others I then have to scroll back up to deselect the first one.

Annoying limit on uploads in batches of 10 even though huge banner saying I have unlimited uploads. Limit should be 50 especially if I’m paying for unlimited uploads.

I should just be able to upload a whole album
Not each pic individually.
I have to enter all the photo set titles each time I upload the batch of 10. By third batch I gave up.
The ‘your membership has unlimited uploads’ banner won’t go away. Fine the first time. How to I get rid of it.
After upload I check the website and all the photos were in one area but no new gallery created You should be able to create an 500px Gallery from a iOS album with title copied. Metadata entry once.
Metadata should be copied from previous upload if it was done in last hour or so.

Had enough

Some time ago I 'deleted my account forever' but was able to log in again (thought I'd start anew but my details were still there...) Anyway I tried again and it's the same story as before; lookalike recommendations and stale content. Clunky and difficult to use in the app. Now there appears to be no way to delete an account at all. Logging in and trying to do it from the website takes you to the app where it says 'a server-side error occurred.' So it's impossible to delete an account. No matter, I've deleted the app anyway.

Original review below:

Lots of content, but:

1. Every time here is an update I have to sign back in to the app. No other app I own does this and I have fed back on it before.

2. Recommended photos - there are an increasing amount of these. Fair enough. But should I favourite one of them, or look into the profile of the photographer, when I go back to my feed it inserts another selection of recommended photos and puts me right back at top of my feed. This means that unless I ignore the recommended photos I never get through my feed. Or I get so tired of going back to the top I give up. This defeats the purpose of the app and recommended photos.

3. Also 'photography' that is basically CGI from Photoshop masters. Lots of that. Boring, in my humble opinion, and not really photography.
