Instagram sync fail
UCFKNIGHTS!!!! on 2/27/2018
First and foremost I love the creative idea behind AU. However mobile experience is subpar. Selecting pictures from IG to order IG friendly memory book does not work. Please fix.
Keeps freezing
Kgrimm16 on 2/24/2018
I can do one thing at a time and then the app freezes. I need to close it out, restart the app and start over.
App freezes up
SJOT on 2/11/2018
Cannot get past the GET STARTED prompt. Have done everything possible at my end to remedy the issue to no avail. Have wasted so much time trying to make a birthday present for a friend, that I simply gave up out of sheer frustration and exhaustion. Obviously the app has a bug 🕷 Rather disappointed as I had my hopes on giving the perfect gift of the wood block with 12 photos I painstakingly picked out and edited 😖
75cdr on 2/8/2018
I continue to be disappointed with this app. Not only does it not sync with the desktop experience or account, it’s functionality is spotty. I was excited to use the new Volumes offer, but continue to be unable to even load photos. I’ve emailed customer service, sent screenshots, etc. Nothing seems to work.
Easy. Breezy. Beautiful.
BBfromCO on 1/24/2018
Simple and easy to navigate. Only to be outdone when the product arrives! Highly recommend. Best gift-giving app ever. *EDIT the new hardcover book in the app is great. Glad to be able to have the option between softcover and something more permanent. #SuperFan
Beautiful products, app much improved!
hl192192 on 1/22/2018
I’ve always loved Artifact Uprising’s beautiful products and have used their app several times because it’s the easiest way to print photos from my phone. The app used to be a bit frustrating because I could only have one project at a time and I had to order everything separately. Not ideal! But now they fixed it!! I’ve already started projects for my parents’ birthdays and Valentine’s Day next month and I’m so excited to be able to edit each project in my own time and have everything shipped all at once!
Easy to create lasting and beautiful product
Gena Allyse on 1/22/2018
This app is easy to use on the go or at home to create a plethora of products that are of great quality!! I highly suggest making gifts for friends and family with AU!
Simple and quick!
.reviewer. on 1/22/2018
Although they have a website with a wider selection of products and editing tools, I love the app for its simplicity and speed! They make it so easy just to get in, build the products I want, and order! The quality is always amazing and if you ever have any questions or concerns, their customer support team is just so wonderful and friendly.
Best Hardcover Option
photo45279 on 1/22/2018
I’ve been trying for months to find a good option to print our yearly photo book. SO GLAD I finally found AU to print, perfect quality and customer service!
Beautiful Product!
Eli314159 on 1/22/2018
App is easy to use and the product is so wonderful! Perfect for gifts. Made my mom a calendar and she loved it!
I love Artifact uprising
chelsearuff22 on 1/22/2018
Easiest way to print your photos directly off your phone, not to mention the quality of the printed product. By far the best I’ve ever seen!
Amazing quality, beautifully designed!
annamarie1010 on 1/22/2018
Easy to use, great customer service when needed, and the final product will make you cry!
Amazing quality prints!
Baker r on 1/22/2018
Top notch products with great customer service.
Easy, breezy, beautiful photo books
grandcentral on 1/22/2018
Such a simple way to make stunning gifts for the whole family! I’ll definitely be coming back to create more.
So easy for all gifts!
Adventures for days on 1/22/2018
This company makes top-notch gifts. I make prints after every trip to send to my friends and family with little notes, and they love the little reminders of our adventures.
Simple process, great print quality.
Reagan_Smith on 1/22/2018
I’ve been using this app for over a year now for various gifts and love the experience. The app is easy to navigate and all of the photo gifts I’ve created were beautiful. Highly recommend!
Could use some cool features
some girl with the name of chelsea on 1/20/2018
I’d really like to use this for whenever I am delivering clients their gallery. I wish you guys had a “gift” set up.. where I could write them a message and then make sure they don’t get a reciept😂😂 Also, I’d really like to know what it looks like when my clients get it! I’d set it up in a heart beat if I had all these answers
best quality on the market
MJJgo451 on 1/19/2018
everything from print quality to paper to the box is beautiful. this company really cares.
The only place I go to for printing!
LoveAU on 1/19/2018
The only place I go to print my phone photos. Their app easily lets me create gifts and prints that I can send to my family, which is always a lifesaver when I’m looking for the perfect gift. I’ve been impressed with their printing, packaging, and especially with their customer service. They’ve taken care of me every single time!
Recent updates helped AU app
Molly020904 on 1/19/2018
I had trouble on the app before, but since they have made several updates I've noticed quite a difference in functionality. The last few times I've used it to build photo books and they've turned out great! Excited I can make my beloved hardcover family yearbooks through my phone now.
Seeing my photos in print
technboots on 1/19/2018
The quality of my photos are beautiful. I love that my photos from my phone can live somewhere else other than just on my phone. I love flipping through them. Also love sending them to friends as a nice surprise :)
Super Buggy and frustrating
rfgee on 1/14/2018
I have had so many issues using the “Volumes” function of this app. My first attempt got stuck in some payment bug and I had to reinstall the app and start again. I was finally able to compile and order my first Volume, and now cannot create a second one. Incredibly frustrating. A great concept but flawed execution.
Volumes needs help, buggy
That777 on 1/8/2018
I use the app for Volumes, but it is pretty buggy. When trying to edit the second volume, the app freezes. It also doesn’t continuously communicate with the photos app, so if you change something in the photo album, you have to start the volume all over in order for the app to recognize it. Also would like to see more color and size options.
Pictures wouldn’t upload and order canceled
H_jorde on 1/8/2018
I’m sure this is a pretty good service when ordered from a desktop. However, this mobile app isn’t the most user friendly. Twice my orders were confirmed and canceled because the app uploaded blank photos instead of the selected photos. Customer service was nice enough, but the whole process ate up way more time than just going to a physical store.
Customer Service - Awful
PHLAK69 on 1/7/2018
Quality of the prints were great but they messed up on 7 of the 25 prints I had made up. When I went to report the issue they acted like they cared but did nothing about correcting the issue. Customer service is a complete joke.
Does not link to desktop account?
Qwertypop123hi on 1/6/2018
I have an album I'm making on my laptop for a wedding guestbook. I have tried to access it from the app under the same account to add photos from my iPhone but the app and my account on the computer do not seem to link at all, and there is not even a way to make a wedding guestbook on the app. Very sad because I want to add some photos from my phone in addition to our engagement pics . Otherwise it seems to work okay
100% useless to edit projects or upload pics
Mergator on 12/31/2017
You need to get with the times and allow mobile photo library access and uploading in your app. And access to projects...AT LEAST to add photos. This app is pretty useless, not intuitive and not a good user experience
Alexduerto on 12/21/2017
This app is amazing. I got my photobook in just a few days. A little expensive but worth every penny.
Where are my saved projects?
TheOnlyEmily on 12/13/2017
Love Artifact Uprising but why would I download this app if I can’t even access my saved projects? When I try to, I’m kicked out to Safari. And then, if I wasn’t offered to create the project on the New Editor, I can’t access it from my phone at all and get an error message to try on my desktop! Yikes, AU.
Seamless Experience
LauraJoan0418 on 12/12/2017
Impressed! Grateful to have my photos printed so beautifully.
Barebones App
SCLEV99 on 12/10/2017
In order to view purchases you are redirected to a browser session and have to login again. I have 2 items in my cart on the web but they don’t show up in the app. All this time and the app still seems like they don’t care.
UX and UI intensely lacking.
jennaschneid on 12/8/2017
First time user and don't have access to a desktop, so the website sent me to the app. Upon download, I couldn't find what I was trying to order on desktop. And they don't even seem to have a location where you can review all products in the app. Frustrated and moving on to another vendor.
App needs work
StephC89 on 12/8/2017
Love their prints and website but the app is terrible. Doesn’t let me add more than one option/item to my cart (prints, books, etc) without wiping the previous item. They need to be ordered separately, resulting in $6.99 for shipping each time.
Nice to have, website is better
danielle15 on 11/27/2017
As a frequent purchaser of photobooks from the Artifact Uprising website, I find the app difficult to use. It does not store photos in galleries and does not give you the option to save a project and return to it later. Unless you are only ordering prints, I would recommend the website over the app for the creation of albums.
Love AU, but the app is so frustrating
AU_User on 11/27/2017
I love AU, but the app remains a frustrating experience for me. I wanted to order calendar reprints, but couldn’t find it anywhere in the app, so I assume it’s not one of the products included. I don’t understand why we can’t order the refill pack when the wood and brass easel calendars are available via the app. Overall, I find the lack of universal product accessibility and lack of crosstalk between the web interface and the app to extremely frustrating and disappointing. Also, is it possible to order multiple items in one shipment in the app? Didn’t seem like it was when I was using it.
Concept good but app stinks and is frustrating
carriedrucker on 10/27/2017
The concept is great but the volumes functionality needs a lot of work! Not intuitive and you can’t delete or save your book. Quality seems ok but if you can’t get it to work what’s the point??
Great holiday cards
RaptorSmile on 10/26/2017
Ordered my holiday cards through AU's app and they turned out great! Love the design, and the app was so easy to use. Definitely recommending to friends. :)
Love the products in this app!
Mandisusie on 10/17/2017
Finally an app that provides quality photo book projects for all the photos on my phone and Instagram.
Alaray on 10/13/2017
I find this app easy to use and the quality of the prints are pretty good so far
Beautiful looking, poor functioning
JudeBK on 10/12/2017
After more than 3 hours and multiple emails with tech support I still have nothing to show for my time. Don't waste yours either. Big disappointment
juggernaut880 on 10/10/2017
I’d love to use the app but there is a bug that it keeps telling me I have the wrong email/password combo. I have reset my password three times and can log on through chrome but not through the app.
Needs update
Clawdeeuhisboss(: on 10/9/2017
This app takes forever to upload your pictures, add info. It took so long I ended up just canceling my order. Not worth it.
Love these books!
willamae10 on 10/9/2017
I just got my first order and I can truly say my jaw dropped they are so beautiful. Add that to the fact that it was so quick and easy to put them together. Never going back!
Endless picture options
Yumyumbb7 on 10/9/2017
Great app for getting pictures off our phones and into high quality print! I have used other companies but the quality does not compare! I change out my wall gallery photographs often for mood and season with the ease of pressing of a few buttons! Also, LOVE the wood calendars that everyone in my family now has and each year I easily send the refill pack with new photos and they are able to save the old photos. My grandma loves the ability to have ALL the photos to easily show off whenever she pleases!
This app needs a lot of work
ashyoung on 10/2/2017
I really love Artifact Uprising prints and I hope you quickly get your app up to speed. My main frustration is when trying to create a Volumes album I cannot select from my iPhoto album, just the photos I want to print. It said that the album I selected would create 6 volumes! And I couldn't edit that. Yes I can edit the photos, but I only wanted to create 1 volume from that particular album in my iPhotos. The app also seems a little buggy and would freeze. Very frustrating and waste of time.
love everything about this company
gg765co on 10/1/2017
highest quality, best customer support, beautiful designs, sustainable choices
Keeps crashing
NicoleRayne on 9/28/2017
Really was excited to use this app but it crashes every time I try to make a book. Big waste of time and big bummer
Where are the square print sets?
Douglas Mac on 9/24/2017
Just downloaded the app and no where do I find the sets of square loose prints. And no search bar to find them on the app. Whaaaaaa???
This app is terrible
Baby4<3 on 9/24/2017
You can't do anything! It's so faulty and frustrating 😕the books look pretty and I see them all over instagram and I was really looking forward to creating series of quality books. But this app won't let me do that. It freezes nonstop and won't load!
App constantly frozen
Stlouiseve on 9/12/2017
You cannot do anything when trying to order prints. The app continually freezes once you select print size. It locks up goes no where.
