Great app/intentions but having submission problems

I’m glad Backstage made an app to make navigating easier on the daily, BUT the point of making submitting easier has been non-existent.

What I mean by this is, when I’m on the page to submit for a role, the app doesn’t upload my media. I try clicking the “+” arrow and “starring” my photos, videos, etc., but when I press “save”, no media is uploaded -thus, not letting me submit due to an empty application page.

So technically, this app is useless for submitting, which is the main point of the app. -to find projects and apply to work.

I would love for this issue to be fixed and I’d easily rate this 5 stars, but until then I will have to save the jobs I find on the app, and then go on my computer to actually submit.

You can’t do anything without a subscription

I got this app enthusiastic to pursue my dreams in acting. But most, if not all, productions say “upgrade for additional information and/or instructions.” The thing is, what if I don’t upgrade? I’ll miss out on “additional information”? What if I’m required to know that additional information? Are you saying that without subscribing, I would be coming to the audition without knowing entirely what to do? Look, I understand why you guys need to make money. But seriously? Here’s a suggestion: maybe for people who haven’t subscribed just don’t show all the possible roles and productions available but show all information for the ones you DO include instead of leaving someone who isn’t subscribed completely confused? I would love this app. It has great potential. Just please do something about this and then it would be my #1.

Edit: I did this review yesterday. I have some more news. My mom came to see to get me signed up for a production on her phone, (although not all the information was provided), and it said she needed to be subscribed! What the heck? Seriously! What. The. Heck???!!!

Hello, thanks for submitting your feedback to Backstage, Americas must trusted resource for actors since 1960. A subscription is required to apply to the opportunities we have listed on our platform, and as part of that subscription you are granted full access to the information for each audition. We allow non-subscribers to see some of the information on what opportunities are available so they can decide with full confidence to subscribe if we have the opportunities that they are looking for. Feel free to contact customer service at customers@backstage.com if you have any additional questions.

Works just enough to work

Maybe it’s an issue with having an [old?] iPhone 6, or the Yahoo! mail app (I know, “Who still uses Yahoo?! How do you not use gmail?!” I don’t know, its hard to change man.) But anyway, every time I click on a listing from a Backstage email to open separately from the Yahoo mail app in Safari, which would then automatically direct me to the Backstage app, almost half the time the app will NOT open on the listing. It opens on the castings page of the app instead and I have to do the tedious task of putting the title in the search bar. Also, I’ve updated the app and turned on notifications in Settings and the Backstage app to get my saved filter searches to send me listings I’m right for. But I never get notifications from the app. That’s why I have to still resort to counting on those emails which is frustrating because the Yahoo mail app and/or Safari is not always even compatible with the app. It’s super frustrating. Although sure, I could finally enter 2018 and get a Gmail account.
