This app is good, it works perfectly, and its very simple to use but in my opinion it is a bit pointless since apple have already let us use photo stream and you can do all the same stuff on photo stream as you can do on this app 😄again, it's good and simple but it's not really neccacery

I just can't figure out how to change my account name! I searched it up and everything and I still can't figure out how to change the name of my account from "A happy ThingLink user" to something better. Other than that, it's great.

Has great potential

Lovely UX and UI.
Brilliant concept.

I don't like the way its reliant on the web when you view / edit images.
Not all of the UX has been thought out i.e. how do you delete something? How do you change privacy on an item?
I don't like the way the app launches to "choose an image" after you have been set up.
