I love the idea behind the purpose for this app but it keeps crashing every time I try to upload a photo or scroll through portfolios to look at other pictures.

I never write reviews....

Unless I am thoroughly impressed or the complete opposite.....unfortunately your app was far from impressive. The first pic I attempted to post was for some reason “not approved” no clue why as it was well within community standards and in no way inappropriate whatsoever, when I proceeded to contact you guys I kept getting an error message and was not able to ask why approval was denied. Then to top it all off today I couldn’t even get into the app kept getting “JSON parse error”

What an absolutely joke!!

Weak execution with good intentions

The idea of challenges is a good one. Problem is, why recreate Instagram. This should use a users existing IG photos submitted to this from that feed.
In addition, you must create an account before finding out more information about this. There should be a more information given before having to sign up. The only upside is the ability to easily deactivate an account, which I did after 20 minutes after checking this out.

We love Instagram too. If its your jam connect with us @gettyunshuttered or #unshuttered. You'll find our photo tips right in our feed.
