Nice work, congrations and GLWS – DCSF
any plan to sell android version of this app?
yes, we’re working on it, it may be available in a month or so.
Video preview doesn’t work. Also back4app.com only provides 5GB of free storage which is very less for Photo upload app. Can you integrate Amazon AWS for storage?
Hi, video preview lonk fixed.
This app has a piece of code that reduces the images size un upload so it will dramatically save storage space in the database. We can’t move the storage to AWS, if you need more space you can subscribe for better plan on back4app.
video works now AFTER you updated the listing. And when you say better plan, $99/months give you only 250gb of storage which will be filled when few hundreds of your user upload photos. Thanks though for your hard work. GLWS
in fact i wrote “fixed”, which means i fixed it, not that it was working before
one uploaded picture has an average size of 300Kb jpg compressed format, which means you can store about 833.000 pictures with 250 GB
833.000 pictures for the price of $99/months, no thanks and GLWS. nothing personal though.
Is there a feature to add comments?
no, we may add it on a next update.
Some bugs here and there.
Hi, may you please be more specific? We have not encountered any bug while testing.
1. Badge on app icon is not reset when you have your notifications checked. Plus no badge or other kind of indication inside where to look for those updates.
2. Closing the scrollview is possible from the first image only, plus there is no typical zoom-in feature here. Sharing would be appropriate here.
3. Sharing does not link back anywhere, very limited.
1. The badge icon resets when you relaunch the app, it’s a method from AppDelegate, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions().<r>
2. We can close the image slideshow even if we look at other pictures, the 2nd one, etc. And if you can’t zoom it that doesn’t mean it’s a bug, it’s a feature we have not implemented since you can see still the full images.
3. You can share Albums on social apps, mail or sms, so what do you mean it doesn’t link back anywhere? And we just decided to share Albums , not single pictures, it’s just the purpose of this app.
Don’t get mad, but this is just not well thought through. I didn’t want to write this here, but I believe you should think what your buyers don’t like and expect of your products. If you push it like an album-oriented app, users should be able to add multiple pictures at once. Adding one by one and having to name each one is really terrible UX. Naming each picture inside an album doesn’t make much sense, this feature could have been in a form of an optional description shown under an image, that would be easier. I would just get rid of scrollview, it’s redundant and useless without zoom, just swipe in different direction, nothing new for user (except pagination itself).
Sharing should link back somewhere. either to an app page or url, allowing new users to be aware of the app (where to look for content behind shared cover image), if we are not talking about deep linking. Current sharing doesn’t lead people to the content. In its current form its just a dead feature for checkmark in product description.
Another UX problem is on the account page – top left corner is typically for back button, not logout. Top right corner is much better for that. Speaking of top right corner, “add album” button is expected to be as big as an album cover with grey background and + on it, just before other user’s albums in a grid. I don’t see any point of moving user’s albums on a separate page, it should be right beneath Followers/Following/Albums/Edit Profile part on the Account page.
Algorithm behind Latest and Popular is very strange too. 3 hours after I created and liked an album it stopped appearing everywhere except it can be accessed through my accounts page. “Latest” should show recent albums. “Popular” should show something with most popularity score, that should take into account time, likes, views etc.
“The badge icon resets when you relaunch the app, it’s a method from AppDelegate, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions()”. Wrong place. It should fire when I switch to “Activity” page and read those updates.
Then why have you bought this app if you don’t like where buttons are placed and how it behaves? Its video preview and screenshots show it in action Also, we’re sorry but you can’t pretend to know what our buyers like or don’t like, YOU don’t like something in this app, and that’s fine, but all the other buyers have nothing to complain about for a well designed and original app template that costs just $24.
Popular button queries the albums with most likes, ordering them by descending. Latest button orders albums by created date, from newer to older ones.
We’ll check the icon badge for notifications.

We’ve just reported your disrespectful and offensive comment, please go somewhere else saying words like ‘garbage’, this is not the right place for such behaviours.
Yeah, reporting your customer’s comments for valid points of poorly made product that doesn’t do what its title says and asking friends to write good comments without purchasing is so awesome? Weak and low.
Just read what other users think about your comments below, and stop being so harassing. This app does what ITS VIDEO PREVIEW SHOWS, it’s easy so what you just said it’s false and keeps making yourself ridiculous here.
And btw, we have reported your comment because of was offensive, or we may say disrespectful, or even vulgar, whatever you want to call it, this is not the right place for words like the ones you’ve used in your reported comment.
I do not understand certain users who complain about certain features included or not in the app for just $20. I hear of UX design, every developer who buys apps in marketplaces are free to customize the app as their wishes. if some people prefer to change button positions lets go changed by it self, developers are free to custom the app like their wants.
For the user to write above, if you need more features for this app do that by your self!. If you need a custom app developed this by your self or hire a developer to create an app to measure and prepare to release 10x this price
Peace bro and FV continue creating awesome apps!
Thanks @daniocho, we appreciate your support
If you can build app using php and mysql it is better than Parse
Unfortunately we’re not experienced with php/mySql, and also it will be hard to make updates/modifications for beginners since they would need to edit php files as well, Parse SDK is easy and reliable because it’s hosted on back4app.com
I think the design is really very beautiful. But just miss some small handy things like an real app does. For example:
1. If it is an album App, then it is very essential that it can zoom the photos to see details of the photos.
2. And to select Multi photos at once to upload.
3. To add descriptions of the albums of the specific photos.
4. To add comments to talk about the photos.
thanks for your feedback.
1. you can see the image slideshow with full image preview by tapping on an image of an album
2. That’s not possible, sorry, because you need to set a title for each image before uploading them
3. There’s a subtitle field for it
4. We may add comments on a next update
Thanks. 1. Full image is really different than zoom to see some details. Especially for a photo App. See the scripts (PhotoFeed app) that I sent to you how to get zoom 2. the purpose is to select Multi photos, think of the scripts that I sent to you. There you can select multi images at once. And you do not need to add a title when you are uploading, after uploading you can add a discription under a photo as well.
ok, we’ll check it out when we’ll have time to do so
Great basic sharing app. But I think more work needs to be put in to make uploading and sorting the pictures easier… Currently, you can’t move around the pictures in the albums (you have to delete and restart if you messed up the order).
Also, the app is very slow. I am not sure if this is a problem with queries back and forth with back4app. Some of the images / content should be cached locally so you don’t have to query the database every time.
Hi, thanks for your feedback. Actually the Parse SDK caches data once they’re loaded the first time, unless you then kill the app and reopen it, then it has to fetch data again. If the app is slow on your side it deoends by a combination of your own internet speed and back4app server speed, it works fine on our side with a normal WiFi connection, and not to much slow with a 3G one.
In fact if it can first show descriptions, then the photos. And then under the photos to show the comments. That will be great.
We can load comments only on a separate controller, in order not to stress too much the database with queries (for free accounts on back4app).
I see the descriptions on the photos, can it just be above or under the photos qua position? Just like normal timeline.
it’s not a matter of space or layout, it’s a matter of too may queries to send for each picture, it’s better to have the app make 1 query only when you tap the Comments button, like Facebook app for example, you can send/see comments only if you tap on Comments button.
Parse will shut down by January, 28th
parse.com, yes, but not the SDK, please read this article: http://fvimagination.tumblr.com/post/153383547781/parse-sdk-will-not-shutdown-in-2017-thanks-to
