Ratings and Reviews
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.

Amazing app! BUTTT!
I absolutely love this app! But there are a few things keeping me from wanting to continue to play. The rank up system is pretty bugged and never stays up to date. For example one of the things I had to do to rank up to the next level was have x5 successful swaps. Well i had far surpassed the 5 mark and had probably around x10 successful swaps all together. But I noticed none of them where counting towards my progression. Well I didn’t think much of it until I got a notification later on that night saying I had ranked up. All though I completed all the tasks earlier that morning. Same thing is currently happening as we speak. I need to hit premier level 10 times to level up. Well I’ve hit premier probably 20 times in the last 2 days alone and none of them are registering and it still says I need them to level up. So it’s almost like the app can’t keep up. And my second complaint is the rank system all together. I feel like it’s a good idea, yet flawed at the same time. Someone could post a pic of a booger and it would rank high just because people spam it just to boost their own post. Which means over time a person with a page full of booger’s could potentially rank all the way up just because of the way the boost system is set up. Love the app, just would also love to see it tweaked a bit.
