I’m very disappointed in this app. I support an account and for a reason that was not explained my support to an account was cancelled. I wasn’t informed of the cancellation and he was deplatformed for political reasons.
Patreon is in need of a update 1/5
By KJ 111112
I’ve been using this app for over 4yrs now in support of my favorite podcast. They have not updated their visual on the app and half of the time the YouTube link that are posted don’t work. I know it’s not the people that I’m subscribed to fault it’s the app. I shouldn’t have to copy and past just to watch the visuals through the YouTube app. The fact that I’ve paid hundreds of dollars over the years and a simple YouTube links can’t play through the app when that’s a service Patreon is offer is annoying and that’s why y’all get one star.
Website needs some work! 2/5
Being a former teacher and someone who designs and creates websites I have to say Patreon really needs to work on their website, especially navigation. It’s a nightmare to find and load individual tutorials. The time it takes to load a page, if you can gond it, is very slow and frustrating for the user.
Auto play 4/5
I like this app and I like supporting the creative on the app. I just have one suggestion and that’s to have auto play. For audios I would like for the audios to play back to back without me having to unlock my phone go to the app and select an audio.
I love this app because I don’t have to try to remember when to give my donations...it’s all done for me! Thank you for this wonderful service! ❤️🌱
Bad app for podcast listening 1/5
Constantly deletes entire list of downloaded episodes. If your RSS feed in another app stops working for some reason and you are forced to listen through patreon you are in for a bad time

Terrible App and difficult to delete account 1/5
By Addictive wow
They make it as difficult as,possible to delete your account. It takes 30 days! Ridiculous! Impossible to find posts and you can’t get a good preview of what you sign up for until it’s too late.
Impossibile to search for specific creator 4/5
I generally have a high opinion of the app but it’s really annoying how whenever I use the search function for a specific creator it’s impossible to find them.
Use website 1/5
By The filthiest pirate
Whats the use of updates? There is no improvement to this app whatsoever it never loads anything or is up to date with the feed.
Great Crowd Source Funding app 5/5
So Patreon allows you to fund groups and or individuals through small dollar or in some cases large dollar monthly donations. It seems a lot like a tech-black hole to avoid taxes and official incomes for the users but that’s their problem. There is a huge diverse community of thought, content and speech. It is also from my experience easy enough to change your commitments so say if a Pandemic hits you are losing your mortgage. It will be interesting to see where it goes. I also can’t find anything that says how well they protect your information or who/if they “sell” “trade” or otherwise use your account information.
Patreon is where I learn music! 5/5
This is the best place to learn music.
Truly Broken App 1/5
It is unbelievable how busted every single part of this app is. The search 100% does not work, the skip buttons randomly fail you, the load time are TERRIBLE.
I understand the stress of developers and software engineers, but whoever is the head of engineeringand whoever is the head of product should probably be fired.
Shame on You GARBAGE APP 1/5
This app closes out both of the conservative accounts I follow and did not let me know and still decided to charge me for the entire month. Also, a TRUE VIOLATION OF FREE SPEECH. Class action lawsuits will be coming soon. I want my money back. To anyone spending money on this app, be on the lookout for this crooked app will not let you know and keep charging AND WILL NOT REFUND!!!!
The least functional app I have ever used. 1/5
I really wish there was a different platform podcasters would use to put out extra content. I ALWAYS have trouble listening to audio through this app. I have to download the audio first and then listen, which wouldn’t be a problem if the audio then worked but half of the time it does not. I really love the podcasters I pay Patreon for but I’m seriously considering removing my support because this app is absolute trash. Whoever is responsible for the Patreon app should look for a new career because they obviously cannot develop an app.
Great app for commenting and community, but a major drawback... 2/5
Can’t post pictures. What’s the point if I have to log into the mobile site to do so? And even if you are able to do THAT, the Patreon platform re-positions your photos sideways. Brilliant!
Please consider making posts on your feed archivable. I dont want to have to scroll through things im either uninterested in or have already engaged with
Super Puzzling 1/5
By ~ Violet ~
App updated and I get a prompt that I can sign in using Touch ID. Great. But, then the app doesn’t link to my existing Patreon account, and I see no way to direct it to that account — it just sees me as a new user. And now if I get email notifications for new content from creators I support, and click their links to content that’s part of my paid support, it takes me to the app where I still cannot access that content. So now I have to untangle this mess. And this isn’t the first time some kind of update has locked me out of my Patreon Perks. It’s puzzling and frustrating and really diminishes my desire to support anyone via Patreon. Very puzzling.
Annoying app issue 3/5
By Atlast Clothing
I have to log back into my account every few days. It’s annoying
Notifications broken? 4/5
In the past couple weeks, I've suddenly stopped getting notifications of new posts by creators. I didn't change anything, and I double checked all my settings that they were set to do push notifications, so I'm at a loss for what happened. Not the worst problem, but certainly an inconvenience.
The website has better functionality 2/5
This app is so bad and not fun to use at all. There are better and more convenient features on the regular website itself, which is just as speedy. There is just so much wrong with this for it to be an app used by so many content creators. I went front excited about becoming a Patreon supporter to frustrated and wanting to cancel just bc of downloading the app. Going back to the website instead.
There should be places for the patron to explore, displaying examples of what these creators have to offer to help them be discovered!! This app seems to solely rely on other forms of advertisement such as self promotion through other networks (social media) which isn’t reliable at all these days if you yourself are a new creator
Cannot login to account on ipad with Google account 1/5
Consistently failed to login for iPad with Google account. No answer from support. If I can't use the app, it deserves zero stars.
Still bugs needs to fixed 1/5
Every time I try to open the app it closes it self out. I don’t know what’s going on, I restarted my phone, uninstalled and installed, I even updated and it still have the same issues. This has been going on for the past a month or so. I don’t know wether my review will help but this is one of the issue I’m having with this app.
Zero creator functionality 1/5
Great. It has everything to post... but literally the engagement piece is lacking. I wish I could see my reports etc. I find myself just using the website on my phone... which isn’t great. Can we find a way to get all the same functions into the app? Maybe specific creator app and a patron app??
The two worlds seem to overlap too much in this app.
Terrible support 1/5
if you have a billing error you get a run around with numerous emails and I live forms to fill out. No phone number so you cannot call anyone. Spent much time and energy emailing with attachments showing what happened only to get another email directed to do what I already did or to fill it another form. Not worth trying to get money back anymore. Greatly enjoyed supporting the creative people on this platform. But can’t afford another autocharge so cancelled my account.
Garbage app 1/5
By Cale Lynn
Have to restart often, no “sort by date” in app like on website, I hate this app with a passion
Needs full screen video mode 3/5
I would really like to be able to watch YouTube videos in full screen from within the app. I am a patron of some ASMRtists who share early access/exclusive videos that I would like to watch in a darkened room, but I cannot because I have two bright white bars blasting my eyes from above and below the video. Please either allow embedding full screen videos with a dark surround, or else add a dark mode option to the interface! Otherwise the app works pretty well.
Discover Church 5/5
I decided to subscribe to Pastor Cioccolanti’s online church because I believe the Lord our God is guiding him through his teachings. I’m glad I am a member because I also want to give and practice tithing not just during our family devotional at home but online.
Diggin it! 5/5
Only place to get the uncensored truth on what the criminal DNC is really up to!
This App is Bad, Actually 1/5
I don’t ever write reviews, so you know it means something when I crawl out from under my rock to leave an app review. This app is constantly crashing and failing to download content. I just got this app, but apparently this has been going on since at least 2018. Seems like maybe over two years would have been enough time to fix this, but I’m not an engineer so who knows.
Add a search function for feeds, Jesus Christ 2/5
When I go back to my podcasts 3/5
By R Hailey
When I go back to my podcasts, if I’ve gone way down the list, it shoots me all the way back up to the top and I have to scroll a whole lot more. Would love to be able to search for a podcast episode within the persons page that I’m supporting. Also, the app likes to close itself. Otherwise has been great.
Major Bug that never gets fixed 1/5
By Alyssa Hymas
Every time I update this app, I get logged out and have to re-enter my information. I also lose my place on EVERY audio as a result of this. None of the updates fix it so at this point there is no use in downloading the update. I’ve had this issue since beforeI first got my iPhone 11 six months ago, so it is not the phone, and my software is always up to date. This is a Patreon problem.
Something went wrong 1/5
By Pinky the Cube
This app has been unusable since June. Cannot login, says “something went wrong”.
Wont let me log in with apple id 1/5
This app keeps kicking me out saying it is not available when im trying to sign in. It rejected my Apple id when im using that account to pay for the podcast im trying to listen to. Would be much better if i could listen to the podcast i pay for through the app
Great podcast terrible app 1/5
By Mr. Rigwilldo
Clunky slow app. It’s the 1980 Ford Pinto of podcast app.
If you get a text or alarm goes off while listening the podcast skips and have to reload the app. The download option works 40% of the time if you’re lucky. No good search function to find new podcast.
Unfortunately some of the best podcast are on this app so I deal with it.
Needs a search by tag option 2/5
By Harry Handgrenade
It’s silly you can’t search by tag like the browser version
LOG IN 3/5
Overall I like the app except for one very important thing – every time the app updates, the app must be logged into again, and it loses your place in all of your podcasts. This is a very basic thing that should be easy to fix. It’s very annoying to have to continually do this.
Needs a photo sharing option in the message or comments 5/5
By Bob Belt
Just a suggestion
By Min Jennie
I can pay for what I want
Curated news feed of quality content 5/5
I eeee ally value the quality of content I enjoy while supporting creators I admire. It helps me combat the constant scroll.
Love it 5/5
By Morbid Feast
Bigger Screen 3/5
Make it so you can make the screen bigger like so it can go into canvas mode
It delivers. 5/5
By OTIS BIALOS
I just took the dive into Patreon in support of Pokey LaFarge, a recording artist I really like. It has delivered big time. The videos are great , more intimate than YOUTUBE and turns out his poetry is up my street as well. This is a great way to support artists during Covid19 & I feel great about that.
Is there a way for me to give this zero stars? 1/5
Absolutely atrocious app. I have never used an app that crashes catastrophically so often. At least 2-3 times per week, the app will crash, delete all my downloaded audio, completely log me out, and forget all bookmarkers. If it weren’t for the content creators, I’d never recommend this app to anyone. Use the RSS feed if possible, because you will want to avoid this app at all cost.
Have to get on patreon on a good day 3/5
By Kaitlin Johnson
This patreon app for mobile and computer is just very slow and you have to get on it at a certain time the best way for me to get everything for my Sims game I have to download everything in the morning for some reason patreon works best in the morning for me after I noticed it running slow and just not working and pictures doesn’t load up I have to get off and just wait love the app and computer but to laggy for me after a certain hour
