Earnings are nice, on the activity tab I have 1 review like 4 times the same. But it happens via emails too. Dunno if they press the button 4 times :D

There is loads of stuff Shutterstock doesn't fix. It is a shame that those bugs even enter a new developed app.

I've got a lot of images that were "added to 5 lightboxes".  5 being the important thing there.

Yeah, me too.

The funny thing is, some of them have been downloaded only once. Lol.

Also, there is a bug in the number of monthly downloads. The web interface and the contributor app give totally different number (the number is 2x in the contributor app).

Shame it doesn't have the keyword info like the old app :(

I second the comment about the missing keyword information. Also, it appears to be unable to update the day's total if the app is running, at least in earnings. In the Activity tab it does update, but I had to shut the app down and start it again to get the earnings info to update.

I used the feedback link to post about that, but was confronted by light gray text on a white background as I typed, so who the heck knows what it said :)

I also miss having a weekly total - makes it easy to see if it's a good week, versus just a good day. It's a shame that they released this new app without all the existing features.

I had the 5 lightboxes oddities too - two said on Sept 15th, one on the 12th and one on the 11th. Those have to be placeholders, or there's some missing code. If there are stats on what's been added to a lightbox, I'd like to see a whole list, not just a few.

I always have 5 for the lightboxes as well.

Is there any notifications does anyone know?

Its also kind of hard to know if I've had any sales le the activity bit. It just gives a monthly count and your balance right? The old mobile website had the last image sold and daily balance.

Not sure that this really should have been a priority for the tech team..... but I speak as somebody who wouldn't know what kind of system my phone runs, lets alone how to download an app.....!

It is a great looking app, but I sincerly hope they bring back the keyword info.

And give us more useful data as well - Like total number of lightboxing for a file. Ideally with a graph, to see how the exposure of a file is growing over time.

Data on where a file has been sold (country info).

And most important: Please give us data for our galleries. Downloads and regional data. How many views does a gallery have?

Which countries are predomintanly downloading this style?


But kudos to a really beautifully designed app. When it comes to user interface SS rules the stock world.

It is almost funny how Shutterstock refuse to give us more graphs/data/information on how our photos are doing. There is no real way to know what is in demand and what just had not have enough exposure to lift off.

« Reply #14 on: September 22, 2014, 18:50 »
Ah, they've removed the feature (bug?) where you saw which files exactly your referred photographers sold and how many times. :/

It was quite useful. :)

Edit: So don't upgrade if you don't need to. Also, if someone has an .apk from the previous version, hit me up. :)
