Extremely useful

I can not express enough how much I love and appreciate this app and it’s content. I felt more sure about going through with a particular treatment that I had previously said absolutely “no” to. I read the many reviews on Real Self and all my fears went away. I’m so happy I did because going through with the treatment was the best decision I could have ever made for myself and my condition. Seeing the before and after photos of real, unbiased patients is what really helped me.

Good info/content needs work

I actually liked the app better before the update. The problem is it’s very glitchy - sometimes you can’t see all the content in the reviews; the videos hardly ever work; and there’s no way to organize or filter the content. Even if you unselect the types of procedures that you don’t want to see in your feed, the next time you open it up, everything is there again. That means that you’ll see huge pictures of vaginas In your feed when you really don’t want to. And every time you do a search, the same content comes up even though it doesn’t seem to be in any sort of order. It doesn’t start with the newest review or the newest content, it just shows, I guess what would be the most relevant reviews or content? But there really should be a way to sort it so that if you want to see it by the newest review or most recent comments or something like that, you can.

This app is crap, but it’s necessary.

When you have a bug that persists MoM why do you even keep that branch of the application on prod? Just tell your users you hate them lol.

When attempting to play a video in any corner of this this application (uploaded from a patient or provider) the app stalls, leaving you with one option: to force quit. All the other actions become inoperable, and you’re stuck with a spinning wheel… until you force quit and have to start your research over.

I’ve been using this app for close to a year, and have never been able to play a video. There have been no major improvements to the search function, history or saved items and I would not describe the app as enjoyable to use at ALL — it is simply necessary, and actually quite frustrating if you’re attempting to research properly, cross compare practitioners and organize your plans.
