Ratings and Reviews
Phenomenal app. One suggestion, though
This app has easily become the best subscription I have ever paid for. It has given me a window into the professional acting industry while still in college, which has been invaluable for me. I’ve made around $1,600 from jobs that I’ve gotten through Backstage, and I can’t thank you guys enough for that.
I do have one suggestion, though. I would like the ability to swipe away productions that I’m not interested in so that they don’t show up in my feed anymore. Sometimes, a job will show up that doesn’t have any roles I want to audition for or is just a scam. The scams get deleted pretty quickly, but being able to delete those myself would be a great help.
Thanks for listening and thank you for the opportunities you’ve allowed me to have!
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???!!!
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.
