Love Pexels.

I follow their website but never thought they had an app until I needed to do something with my phone. I needed some pictures to use but downloading from the site wouldn’t give me that nice quality I want since I am using a phone. I tried the AppStore and luckily found it. It’s really inspiring app. No competitor for this app. I wish I could give you the Milky Way instead

Perfect app for photographers and artists!

Perfect app for photographers and artists for exposure, users for beautiful high-quality photos. I have been using Pexels for various art projects and it's easy to access to artist's info so I can leave their info when I use their works. However, since two days ago, Pexels app began to crash when I try to view the photo, it enlarges and turns into complete white screen and I can't interact with an app anymore. Please fix this bug for next updates otherwise, I can't use Pexels anymore now :(

Developer Response ,

We had a temporary problem with the photo statistics being provided from our server. This issue should be fixed now -- please give it another try.

Could be great

I really love Pexels. I was glad to find it. However it's a mess. This app is garbage. It barely works. It crashes constantly and you lose where you were in the search so that once you come back you have to rescroll through all the photos you already saw to get to where you were. Which brings me to the next issue. Half the time it just stops loading. There's no way a broad search like portrait, face, person, has only about 100 photos and then hits a no more to load bar. This app seriously needs work. I never review stuff but man is this a dream come true and nightmare all in one
