Hi, we’re Patreon. We believe people who make things should get paid for the value they give to the world.
Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for artists and creators to get paid. Fans pay creators of all kinds a subscription amount of their choice in exchange for exclusive experiences and behind-the-scenes content. Creators get a meaningful revenue stream and fans get closer to the creators they love most. We think that’s the definition of a win-win.
Patreon’s iPhone app brings creators and fans together like never before.

I really love the app, it's a super convenient way to keep track of the artists I like and also keep updated on the content and my pledges without having to get on the computer or comb through my email, however even after having had the app for a few months, it's still kind of hair to navigate. Not impossible but I have found that some of the avenues to get to options that I thought I would find on the main page of an artist are often buried somewhere in my settings. Editing pledges is an example of this. The pages can be a tag glitchy and tend to lag depending on the content, but the scroll works well enough. There is no way to search tags other than scrolling until you find what you're looking for? Also unless you have a Patreon link or you know the specific handle of the person you're looking for, finding someone can be difficult at best.
Why is this app rated so highly? Use the website...
I seriously don’t understand why this app is rated so highly. It’s pretty terrible from both a usability aspect as well design and maybe even coding.
It never correctly shows you how many creators/artists you’re supporting. It’s high near impossible to change your tier level or cancel. It’s very confusing. There are parts of the app that clearly kick you out the website, which is fine, but sometimes you’re literally entering in the same information in the app just to be sent to a webpage with blanks! Looking for someone in particular? Good luck with that, since the search function isn’t good at finding people. One of the nice things about the app, is that you can actually download certain files. They remain inside the app to prevent you pirating out to the rest of the internet, which I completely understand. However, every time they change app, or change the website too I think, all your downloads disappear. Good luck finding them again!
At least they’re slowly fixing app, bug by bug, to their credit. The app finally handles playing videos well. Turning your phone to horizontal and back during videos caused problems, but no longer. Still, the app is really not ready and seems like it’s stuck in beta testing. You’re better off just going to the Patreon website.
I recently signed up for a podcast on patreon. I normally listen to podcasts on stitcher as it’s a simple easy experience. But this one won’t show up for me On stitcher, so I have to go through the patreon app. Unfortunately the person I’ve subscribed to has 400 podcasts and the one I’m trying to listen to is one of the first. I can get to it by searching for it on a web browser. But when I try to play it through a web browser (on the official site!) the podcast literally stops every 30 seconds. However I also can’t get it to open in the app. I can find no search function for specific episodes in the app. No list function. No favorite function that would show me even the ones I favorite on this app. The only way I can tell to get to this podcast in this app is literally to scroll through a feed of 400 podcasts which only load 10 at a time. Am I missing something or is this seriously how this app functions? It doesn’t function at all? I can’t believe how much time I’ve already wasted just trying to get a podcast I payed for already to play. Definitely no functionality allowing me to message the creator either. I can’t believe this is supposed to be the official app of a platform supposedly about helping creators easily connect with their audiences.
