Ratings and Reviews
Great for uploads on the go
I went 4 stars only because the app is little limited. Otherwise I am very satisfied!
PRO: The huge advantage IS being able to upload while on the road. As long as you have wifi or data, it works well. I have heard some people think it is compressing images, but when I double check on my computer, they look fine to me! That could be their device settings, not the app. It also updates earnings and sales, sometimes before I even get notification of a sale on my phone. Phone is set for notifications and not my iPad. Just an FYI, notifications seemed to blank out volume in spots when shooting video footage!
CON: Does not have all the options of the browser version. I wish I could move photos to the published folders on the app! Still logging in computer for management.
Basics are good but lots of UX issues
Overall the app is a great idea. Yet, lots of problems still. Would say this is a MVP at best. 1. Let me work on more than 10 pictures at the time. 2. Let me copy keywords. 3. Let me not just save multiple at the time but also submit them all at once. UX on this is pretty disappointing. 4. App crashes frequently or tries to upload for several days (not a network issue, other apps uploading don’t have issues and tested connection) saying “starting upload...” as it is loading...for hours per picture. 5. Why can’t I change profile settings (such as payment details) in the app? It’s always opening a browser window. If I keep getting redirected to the website I can just use my browser from the start and skip the app. Please take this feedback into consideration and make some serious improvements to the app, for the benefit of you (Shutterstock) and me (user/customer). Would be very appreciated!
I’ve been a contributor with ShutterStock for a couple years now. It has its ups and downs and I haven’t quite figured out how to get consistent sales yet even with a couple thousand photos. But, sometimes I hit it big and sometimes I make 37 cent. It’s fun, easy, and only soaks up as much time in a day or week as I personally want it too which makes doing this convenient. That said, I wish ShutterStock would change a few things just to be a bit more consistent on pricing. Otherwise, the app itself works great.
