Can never log in and password reset doesn’t work!
Can’t create account 1/5
Will not let me create an account.
No assignments anymore ! 1/5
It was ok while it worked . It had a lot of potential .
Now everything seems abandoned.
Can’t create my profile. 2/5
Tried to create my profile but keep getting Oops Message that something is wrong on their end. It’s a little scary to give them a picture of your credit card for payment I would have preferred a PayPal account setup to receive payment. Like the idea just not comfortable with payment and it has a glitch on setting up profile. That is pretty easy programming (account creation).
No assistant 1/5
I’ve been on this site 1 day and it’s already not impressing me. This is a joke. How are you suppose to contact anyone if you have an issue.
I guess I’ll be the first one to report them to the BBB for ignoring, neglecting issues that they have.
Does not work! 1/5
This app was great while it worked but now it’s just extremely frustrating and disappointing. I first encountered a gallery error every time I tried to upload and now even after deleting the app 10+ times nothing in the app works. It says null where my account should be and doesn’t let me do anything. I have tried to contact the fresco support Group numerous times and have not been help other than they tried to change my password. Great concept and would be a great app if it worked...
Worst app, worst company 1/5
The road to Fresco was paved with good intentions. Stay far away from this app if you like your life and don't like to be frustrated.
Probably the worst! 1/5
By Beshar AL Azzawi
I NEED TO DISABLE AND DELETE MY ACCOUNT! Nothing works in this app. This is outrageous. At least give me the option to delete my account via a browser or any other method! It is creepy that they have my bank info, and the app DOES NOT WORK! Allow me to delete my account and REMOVE MY DATA! Apple do you see this? This is wrong I don't trust those people
Help please 1/5
The TOS button does not work. How do you expect people to sign up when they do not know what they are promising you or what you are promising them. No go for now.
Battery Drain Problem 1/5
My battery usage showed Fresco running in background for 13 hours in the last 24 hours even though app has been closed for a couple weeks and I wasn't logged in either.
Drains your battery 1/5
It would be great if it didn't use 50% of my battery a day running in the background. Maybe I'll DL it again if they fix that issue.
Battery drain 1/5
The latest version has a pretty major bug. 15.3 hours of running in the background today, making 53% of today's battery usage and I haven't even opened the app in weeks. Deleting until the issue gets resolved. Otherwise it was a pretty cool app.
Battery killer 1/5
By j diver
Even though it's not open and hasnt been opened in weeks, this thing is sucking on my battery 3 hours a day to the tune of 13% of my battery usage!
Impossible to use 1/5
Freezes during the process of forcing you to make a profile so you can't even use it.
They've improved, more to go 3/5
I appreciate that the show the correct pricing in the app for users in their region, that was a great improvement. However, they absolutely need to improve the constant crashing of the notification/bell tab on the menu bar. Customer service is quick via chat. Though we all know communication strictly through writing can create different perceptions at times. They right their mistakes as well. Improve the crashing and it'll be 5.
What flop this app has become. It used to be real great. Ever since they really went "mainstream" and let the everyone and their mothers join they've watered down the assignments. That's where they went wrong. Used to be actual photojournalism now it's just another worthless app. I hope another app carries on the job it had. On to the next.
Great App 5/5
I Had the app for less then 1 hr posted a video in Houston and the local news bought it$$$
By Mike a GoPro user
People listen it's a good app with good customer service however, message support first before u upload anything to see if ur state or city has a partner through fresco otherwise u will be competing for money nationally with little chance to receive any kind of payment
Disappointed user 1/5
I cannot for the life of me figure out how to use this app. A menu link to instructions would be helpful. It is not intuitive. 👎
Great looking app 2/5
I haven't made a dime from this app yet but I still have some hope. But this app needs some tweaks like being able to see upload progress and an assignment list that's more direct and actually a list rather than just seeing dots on a map
Terrible APP! 1/5
Big Thumbs DOWN.
Signed up (so I thought because this APP is so bad) but...
No option to verify password.
No email confirmation.
Profile info disappears.
Logged out and can't log in using information I provided, appearing as if it's taken now - really?
This is a perfect app to make quick easy money, and all you have to do is take videos of news. Take a video, get paid $50 and boom, your content is on the news on tv later.
Highly Recommended to People Wanting to Join the News 5/5
Great way to get your content to news stations. When you see something happening - typically the other news outlets are still 15-20 min away. In this field - the first footage is what they look for. Great way to earn money and build a reputation in the field.
I was mentioned on the news... 5/5
I've had this app for a while now and I've never been able to use it due to working too much. Well, I finally got my chance at work and within hours my video was bought from me and the money was deposited into my account and the next morning I saw my video on the news and the news anchor mention my name. I also viewed a Facebook live video of the news station the night before, and they had used my video for the 6 PM news I was ecstatic!!... LOVE THIS APP!!
Great way to make money 5/5
I've already made so much bank my girl finally got her anniversary present it was 8 months ago but in like 1 hr I made the money necessary to get her an amazon dot she doesn't know yet no one tell her
Excellent customer support 5/5
I've yet to upload anything but friends have. Being able to see their work & knowing they get paid for it is incredible. Had a question and it was answered within minutes!
Love it 5/5
I've been using this app since about Nov 2016 to submit my videos and pics for National news agencies to potentially purchase them. I've had a few purchases and I love that I get notified of events close by to go and film. Not only is it nice to get a submission purchased, but I love having assignments pop up of events I wouldn't have normally known about. I've ended up exploring my city and seeing new things thanks to Fresco. I also love seeing my shots featured on the news, which is an extra cherry on top. Keep up the great work!
Awesome application 5/5
By Khawaja Lone
I was introduced to Fresco by an ad on tv. I downloaded the application it was user friendly. I did my first video and uploaded it. With in minutes my video was reviewed and with in a few hours I was paid. It is a great application and experience! I highly recommend it.
Can't get signed up 2/5
The link to sign up is not working....
I wonder how to delete a video that I uploaded that it shows the wrong location for
Journalism for students 5/5
By Alice Void
Good app that gives students an amateur journaling experience.
Interesting To Say The Least 5/5
I was on ad for this app so I downloaded it. Works great I'd like to be able us camera outside of the app. In app usage has users friendly accessibility. No need to upload so the camera in the app makes sense. I'd like to make sure the resolution of my phone is stil used.
I had questions for technical support about how the payment worked and I was contacted right away.
Fresco New get paid! 5/5
By Maximilian Jenius
Great Customer Service!
Best new app 5/5
I love Fresco! I can't believe I'm Getting paid to report on so many interesting and cool assignments!
Wish I could give negative stars 4/5
This app is a FRAUD. You NEVER get paid and they ask for lots of personal information. I was told I had a payment of $30 but even after setting up my account they all of a sudden didn't have my money to pay me. I think they just want to collect personal data. Hope they don't use it for bad reasons....
Bad bad bad 1/5
This app is a sick joke. Been a user for sometime now and haven't gotten one notification for a paid photo event. What has happened though is fresco is non-stop bombing my phone with news stories that there is no way to turn off. Developer of this app needs to go back to school. Too bad I couldn't give it negative 5 stars.
Made $250 in a jiffy 5/5
Got an alert for a fire a few blocks away. Took my phone out and submitted videos. Loved that the app helped me shoot better. 10 mins later I had my videos bought!
3.0 is 🔥🔥 5/5
Fresco now let's you interact with other citizen journalists; follow, like, comment and repost! So on top of getting paid when your content is used you can also build a personal following. So dope!
Still Can't sign up 1/5
Every time I try to create an account I get an error. Deleted and tried again to no avail. 👎👎
Does not work on my iPhone 6 1/5
By Ron E. Harmon
Tried everything and this app crashes every time I open it.
By Photo Beeze
Old versions worked... The update has made it so I am unable to upload anything to the app let alone update my profile... But since it stopped notifying me of assignments and half of the app doesn't work why would that matter... And yes I have notified them directly via their "chat" and email with no real non BS answer... I was even told to submit my photos via email and it would be sent to content... Sadly doesn't appear that has happened... Very disappointed...Hopefully it is fixed ASAP!!!
Great innovation for news 5/5
What a great app and what a cool new way to view the news. Can't wait to start making money and the app works great!
Cool app 5/5
I only downloads this app out of curiosity, but it is actually pretty awesome! I was in wrigleyville and there was an assignment to record people going to the Cubs game entrance. I recorded it not thinking anyone would actually purchase it. About 3 hours later it was bought for $50. I felt like I won the lottery and was watching the news that night to try to find my video. I also like the news stories it sends me. They are a lot of local ones regarding events that I wouldn't otherwise hear of.
Love this app!!!! 5/5
Love this app. I wake up, scratch myself in various places, make toast, and make news. Cause I'm the greatest, just like this app.
Great Idea 5/5
This app is a great way to make some money for just doing what I like.
Neat idea! 5/5
Really neat idea of making the news more personable.
10/10 would Fresco again 5/5
By armchair philo
Fresco is the best source for news ;)
Is this a news app? 2/5
I get updates of the day's events, but not sure about other features and functions offered in the app.
