Powerful app that helps connect users with opportunities. Biased supporter but a great step forward for the Submittable community.
I've just paid nearly £5 for this app, which crashes upon trying to use the 'login with Facebook' sign-in option. Unusable on install.
The opportunity section needs work. Pretty pictures but little information without time consuming clicking on each one. I currently have five stories out via submittable but I doubt I will use this app.
Promising premise, but leaves much to be desired compared to the actual web site. Even the submission responses are poorly formatted (as in NOT formatted, or even paragraphed). Text is too large and there are little to no preferences/settings. For $5 and all the business you get through your site, your app makers need to step up their game, Submittable! It's 2017. I want to like this app, and it's a long overdue part of your biz.
It works well for what it does: check a submission status. That said, the $4.99 price is truly bizarre, considering the app only does 2 things (and the opportunities function isn't that useful). It's a shame Submittal is charging so much (and yes, $5 is a lot for any app) for writers who often make nothing on their work. Also, the app should launch the submissions page, not opportunities.
$5 for this app is highway robbery. The only reason I got it is because someone bought it for me. My experiences with it are in line with the other 3 star reviews. Edit 4/17/2017: I was contacted by the product manager and consulted with them over email. I was offered a refund and engaged in discussion over what features could be added or edited to get the best experience. Because of the professionalism and attention to detail, I'm changing my rating to a 4.
Let us search for individual reviews... Also attachment/file submission is busted
Wow, srsly? $5 for an app? I paid less for Pokemon Go and that's a massively digital interactive game! For a literary based app, this is hideously overpriced. I guarantee you, that's why only 6 people have downloaded your app. And it doesn't cost you per download, you aren't making new ones for each download, there is no need to charge that much. Dead serious here - for as long as this has been on the market, there should be more downloads. If you lower it to $0.99 or at most $1.99, more people would be willing to give it a go, which means more money in your pocket (a principle I learned from a digital self-published author, how he could finally pay bills by selling his content for less). $5 makes you seem pretentious and greedy, just saying. As for the app itself, it's cumbersome and... fine. Not bad, but really not great, and because of that, REALLY not worth the price. Like... what is the deal with all those large pictures in the opportunity listings? Those have no purpose. It makes it harder to search. The website doesn't have those... Which leads me to another thing - the website is free and easy to use. I can use my phone internet browser and access the site for free. See another reason why people don't download this? Why pay a high price for something unnecessary? I don't see any benefit on this app that justifies the price. But I at least had a Google Play credit and didn't have to pay the full cost, so I'm willing to hang on to this and see if it gets better. It has so much potential!! OMG, so much! I want to see it do better and be awesome. Come on, step up your game! Be awesome! I know you can do it!
