Update review for 10.1

First off, the update did fix some of the issues. Log in is faster, however, it seems if you import an video or edit, a large chunk of your pictures and videos become placeholders and not the picture itself. I’ve lost big slices of my content and since my device backed up with the new version, I can not restore back. So I hope that the next update will restore my items. I am sorry to say that I may have to start moving what items that are left to an different platform. I’ll give the designers of this program a week or so before I do. But sadly, until then, my use of the application will have to be at a minimum.

Developer Response ,

First of all, sorry about any problem. We have determined the cause of the problem and should have an update out to fix it ASAP. In the meantime, do not delete the app as it will delete your data along with it. Also, your photos are not lost, they are simply not visible.

Great app! UX needs improvement.

Ive been using this app (pro version) for many years now and its never lost a pic. The photo editor is amazing! Sometimes ill even import a photo just to edit it and then export it because the editor is so much more capable than the stock iOS photo editor. I use this app every day. It's persisted photos over bricked phones with no worries. Rock solid.

My only complaint is that it requires way too many button clicks to do most things. For example, to import a photo from you library it requires nine button clicks! The worst it the three dialogs that must be dismissed after every import. Two of them could easily be removed. The experienced user doesn’t need to read those warnings every single time. Editing a photo also requires way too many clicks. Taking a photo within the app is a great feature but each photo requires four clicks! It should be one.

The app is stable and well coded but it smells like the software developer was also the UX Designer. If thats the case it could really use a dedicated designer. Developers think from the perspective of the technology (for example the photo library they chose). Designers think from the perspective of the user. It's a huge difference and it shows.

One missing feature is nested directories. Even two levels would be enough.

Another missing feature is multiple (more than two) alternate vaults. There's no reason why there should be only two.

I hate the new version of the app

The previous version of this app was very stable between updates and I’ve been able to add and edit large numbers of photos without problems on my Ipad ever since I bought the pro version nearly 3 years ago. Well lo and behold my Ipad somehow turned on auto update in the App Store without my express permission and installs this train wreck of an app. I am unable to move pictures around in my albums without the app crashing and not saving my changes. Also when I scroll through an album random thumbnails will turn white and I have to scroll up or down on the screen to restore the thumbnail images. Restarting my Ipad does nothing to resolve the issues and reinstalling the app is completely unreasonable due to the amount of pictures I’d have to back up somewhere and reinstall. I also am not a fan of the edit toolbar changes. It isn’t as intuitive as the last version. The crop tool in particular is very buggy and the image keeps moving around on my screen when I try to adjust what I want to crop. This is very disappointing because I used this app extensively and there aren’t really any better alternatives on the App Store. I hope someone is actually reading these reviews (although I seriously doubt it) and gets to work on repairing this “update”. Otherwise I think I’m done using this app for good.
