A lot of in-app purchases but creative

I thought this was an app that would issue creative prompts and you would shoot and upload relevant shots. But you place your photos strategically to gain more votes and if you want to swap a low performing photo you need to purchase “swaps”. If you want to unlock challenges you need to purchase “keys”. You then must vote on photos in the challenge or purchase “fills” to opt out of voting. If you don’t want to “swap” a photo you need to purchase “boosts” and so on. Supposedly you can get feedback but haven’t found that yet. Additionally there are galleries you could submit your photos to and they can potentially be chosen for exhibit but I am not aware of the validity of these exhibitions. I do know the few I have submitted to required “keys”. When you’re new, you’re a “newbie” and need a specific number of votes to progress to “rookie” then up a 9- level scale to “guru”. Downside is all the photos I have worth posting are on my MAC and not on my phone so there is transferring that needs to be done. Although, this is more gratifying than posting on Instagram. I wish there was the option to view the metadata of each photo to see what settings the photographer used to achieve particular shots. Maybe in the update.

“Pay to Win” ruins yet another, otherwise great experience

Started playing, and thoroughly enjoy discovering others beautiful photos, while being discovered at the same time. It feels great to get 300 vote-ups on a picture you’re proud of, and its so fun, and a great pastime, swiping through neat works by everyone else, too. However, after completing challenges at elite and all-star level, and gaining GS points (which are like an experience value), I was excited to move up to Challenger level, knowing I had all the requirements to do so. But then I noticed I needed to make 2 more successful “swaps”, which is a paid for ability in-game, that allows you to swap a photo out for another in the middle of a challenge, in order to enhance how many votes you might get. But I can’t do this, because I only have one swap, not two. Now, granted, its a small in-game purchase to get one swap, and I wasn’t unaware of the fact that this game offered in-game purchases in the first place. The problem I have with it, is the next level, I’ll have to complete five successful swaps, which I will have to pay for, yet again. Its very frustrating, to complete requirements for level advancement, but lack one thing which is just a money grab. Anyway, regardless of this, I will happily continue to play. Its a great concept and game experience, for those who love color palettes and photography. Get it – its fun... and frustrating.

Gave It a 4 out of 5...

I gave the game a 4 out of 5 because there are so many different ways to get to the top. Granted you need a good photo. Someone like myself and my fiance who are new to photography completely,( Xmas gifts were Cameras ) we have learned from others. Like what to do and and not to do when it comes to picture taking. The competitions have forced Us to go beyond what we would take pictures of normally. From the most simple to the more complex photo. At 1st we were expecting magic to happen when we would take our shots, but soon enough we figured it out that not only must you take an initial great shot, but also ( we call it tweaking picture ) you have to tweak the picture to get that result you were trying to capture and more. I did not give it all 5 stars is because, if you boost.... you get more votes and this is just a way for the ”Guru People” to make there $$ and unfair for the competitors. But overall the game is fun, creative, addictive and, challenging 😎😳Just don't expect to get famous 😎😄
Keep up the good work. Thank You, Sam The Butcher.
