Works well but needs adjusting

Updated review:
The app still needs updated for the layout of the iPhone X. I am still unable to easily go back to the previous screen and it will still completely lock up.

I’m going to have to uninstall it completely until this is fixed.

Original review:
Works very well on the website through safari, but on the iPhone X up near the notch I can only see 2 full icons and like 1/8th of the third icon. Downloading pictures seems to also make the app completely lock up.

iOS 12.1

Yeah - I said it! ,

Just needs optimization

This app needs 4 things.

Browse in iPad Portrait mode.
Split-view multitasking.
Ask for file name before downloading, preferably with artist's account name attached so we know who we got pic from.
Other languages, at least French and Spanish.

You should also add a FAQ for users to understand copyright and trademark laws. Even if that Disney character is recolored, we can't use it commercially, or any other trademarked icon.
Explain model and property releases in FAQ.

Sadly, some members are using this site like Flickr.
They don't understand that when they upload an original image to Pixabay, they are donating it to be used for ANYTHING by anyone. This should be explained in the upload dialog box the first time a member tries to upload.

Add more SEO keywords to find this in Appstore. When I search for "free pictures" "free stock" or "CC0" Pixabay is not listed.

Thank you for providing the site.

Photos skip back to beginning when searching!

Ugh. The Photos skip back to beginning when searching! It doesn't happen all the time. It's just random and it drives me nuts.

As a photographer the whole idea of this app is awful and a race to the bottom that can't be undone. But if others want to give out their photos for free I'll take what I need and use 'em and abuse 'em. I just credit the app if at all. Screw giving credit to the actual photographer since they are a serious part of the problem.
