    Great app, but the interface is hard to navigate and get use too. More of a personal preference than a bug. Cool New media app to be apart of.

    By Danny The Wytch
    Upon leaving Facebook and Instagram in search of platforms with integrity, I was still in a mindset of algorithms, likes, and followers. So when I approached Ello with that mindset, I was disappointed. Years on these other networks had me convinced that my worth was dependent on numbers and reactions. Today, I’m able to see Ello for its innovative potential, and I’ll be using it as my online jewelry portfolio to reference my customers to...which is awesome compared to sending potential customers to a social platform rife with ads and trolls. As I relearn what it truly means to be an artist OUTSIDE of the control of social media networks, I’m coming to terms with what I said I wanted being my new reality: being an honest artist not focused on numbers but on sharing my passion. So thank you, Ello, for providing a space for creators BY creators...and for giving me back my power.

  • I love this app Feb 21, 2020

    I love using this app. It is a little difficult to navigate but you get used to it. I also love that it has more post/hashtag freedom than some “other” popular photo app does. 🙄😉 I feel this is a great app for the arts and entertainment industry, especially for photographers like myself who can use this app as a portfolio tool. I would recommend to Ello to maybe do a small tv commercial or push it harder on social media sites. Would love to see this app skyrocket. I’ve read It currently has over 1 million users but all of my friends have never heard about it. I’d like to see that change. ELLO, push out a commercial! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    On the whole the content is diverse and intresting, its creative and different, but its let down by the fact that it is laggy, being slow to load initially, and then the same whilst viewing posts, waiting it to "load more", or going back. If it could be speeded up, it would become more usable, and more user friendly. Also, the listed statics seem hit and miss.

  • Not posting images Dec 26, 2020

    By lindstar
    I downloaded the app to replace Instagram because I was coming back to Ello after being gone for three years and it won’t post images. There’s also no way to contact support. And I agree with one of the other reviews that both the website and the app or not intuitive at all. There’s no confirmation when I changed my password. The app has been allowed access to my images, but for some reason it still won’t post anything. I can only post text. Can’t even post images to comments. What’s the point of having an app if I can’t post images to it? Nobody wants to social media from their computer.

    Slow loading, hangs after commands, force crashes... Overall, the functionality of this app is basically a train wreck. The fact that the app hasn't been updated in three years probably has much to do with its poor performance.
  • So much potential!! Oct 25, 2019

    The app was clunky to use at first, but I quickly adjusted my expectations and thought process. However, there are things I just couldn’t abide by: Major issues: 1) no native support for video. It only hosts video you’ve uploaded elsewhere and provide links for. 2) when uploading a series, you have to do them one by one, going through the tedious add process for each image. Would be nicer to go to your image library just once and selecting several images at a time. Those two points alone are enough to make me delete this app after less than 24 hours. NOT user friendly. Minor issues: 1) images look stretched out at first- distorted 2) when uploading a series, images wouldn’t display correctly or at all in preview. You just had to hit Post and hope it turned out. It always did, but the white space is unnerving when trying to see how it looks together before posting. 3) the app auto-followed over 100 people the moment I signed up?!? I suppose this is how they match you with people who match the type of categories you picked?!? Not how I like to roll. I’ll follow people on my own thanks.

  • Full of creative snobs... Feb 21, 2018

    By Pancello
    This is the third time I am writing a review regarding my experience on Ello. I am beginning to think that my review of Ello is being censored. At any rate, I was on Ello initially for almost 3 years - possibly more. In that time, I garnered maybe eighty followers. That’s right: 80. I have more followers and engagement on the dog eat dog environment of Instagram than I ever had on Ello. Eventually, it became apparent to me that the only people that would get any real recognition or inclusion on the platform are people that Ello chooses to be noticed. In other words, once again, it’s who you know - not what you can do. In many ways, I found my experience on Ello like being in high school all over again. Except, in this instance, the popular clique, being comprised of the art room kids, have somehow taken over the school. If I were my high school self, I would celebrate such an occurrence. However, my current wiser and older self resists elitism and artistic snobbery - which is what Ello is all about. So, if you’re looking for a supportive and encouraging community where you feel empowered and have a real voice, Ello is not it. In many ways, Ello is the epitome of one hand clapping.

    Laggy as all hell. Buggy as hell. Took a whole five minutes after I clicked the clink before finally quitting altogether. The app probably STILL won't open. I uninstalled before I even tried the damn thing...
  1. The next artistic network and publishing platform! Create, publish, sell, and be seen by others in the community, on your terms
  2. No algorithms collecting and controlling your personal and profile data - be published when and where you say on the Creator's Network
  3. Get your best work out there! Timeline is always ad-free, always in chronological order of posting

    Now would be a great time to optimize your mobile app, given IG depressing update. Ive used the browser for years and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    My blog Slut-Problems is thriving on ello. It's easy to use and the community is nice once you get to know them. I write erotica paired with pornographic gifs and I can post most things with confidence that no one under 18 is going to see them. I am flagged as explicit and I honestly like that there is that option. I also love the way ello presents my work so that all of my posts get views.

    I wish the team gave us a bit more control of how we see our feeds. Other than that, this app and platform is by far one of my favorites. no random ass adds, no spying on me, only sees what I post and follow in order to shape things out for me. It might not be as popular as facebook, but its also no where near as shady. I definitly recommend this to anyone out there looking for something different and truly amazing!

    I think for the way it looks and feels it's more professional and a better alternative for other Socialmedia-outlets. The only 2 down side (really) are that it's a bit slow and there aren't that many people active I feel! Overall I'm happy and I'll keep uploading 🖖❤

  • Great concept app could be better Mar 2, 2018

    By ZaccCharv
    I love what Ello is trying to do. Getting artists more connected to other artists and giving artists more opportunity to get their work out there. The app is not super air tight though. Not as streamlined of an interface as say Instagram, a little harder to figure out. But not too complicated.

    Hi! I downloaded this app three years ago because I appreciated the format and the more intimate platform they offer. Though I encountered a very limited success on it (to this day...), I won't let it go. I humbly use it as a mini portfolio, waiting for trying my hands on new artistic outlets as well as being back to showcase my upcoming photography practice. I just wish ello would implement something of a porn filter because I won't take any dick pic popping for free as I scroll down the app...

  • Would be nice if... Dec 17, 2018

    By Damnationpink
    Just starting to explore the space, looks great so far! Really loved your privacy policy *however* a glitch in your Preferences functionality is keeping me from enjoying those features. Specifically, when the preference description is too long, it shrinks the toggle for the preference to where it is un-clickable or not visible at all. And so as of now, I can’t turn off some pretty obnoxious features that are currently auto-set to “YES.” Also, kind of annoying that set up involves you auto-following users...sure, it only took a minute or two to unfollow all of them...but it’s just really unnecessary—let me find my own users to follow. Thanks!

  • Bravo! Jan 30, 2021

    By Bjones'n
    Well done, team Ello! Been using the desktop and mobile versions for a while now, nice to finally be on an App. Since Ello came around, it’s now the only social media platform I use. Unfortunately, this App is missing many key features so in good faith I just can not yet give it 5 stars. In addition to the below, I suggest you hire UX and UI designers. I promise you’ll benefit from doing so. Missing Basic Key Features: - Landscape View - Scroll To Top of Page Button - Edit Previous Post Option - More Visible & Stronger Search - Searching #'s - Etc. Keep working on improving the UX, establishing a stronger consistency for users between displays (i.e. The 13th principle of display design) and adding missing features and you will have an unbeatable platform in no time.

  • Snail’s pace load times Feb 22, 2018

    By MrWillyChocolat
    The idea behind Ello is admirable: let’s not mine users’ data. But as a showcase for creative output, this app fails hard by failing to display images. It’s like going to a restaurant where no food is ever served. Where is the content? All I see are grey boxes with spinning loading icons for 30 seconds or more before any images even load. Then they just trickle in, one image every 30–45 seconds. It is not my data / WiFi connection either, because apps like Pinterest and Tumblr load images and GIFs within a comfortable time. Please make the content load fast. Thank you!

  • The app is mostly unusable. Nov 15, 2018

    By splashofcolor
    I spent an hour trying to update my bio, but couldn’t. There’s no save button and it doesn’t auto-save. I tried to add social media links, but couldn’t do that either. Trying to post an image is an exercise in futility. I don’t see little reason to remain on a site I can’t use outside of the browser, when my primary device is an 12.9” iPad Pro. I uninstalled the app and will have to revisit the site through the browser to disable my account.

    It isnt anything special, and pintrsst is more intuitive to use. Cannot make communities without using a second email. It honestly is mostly just annoying if i am being honest, i would have liked it to go somewhere, but not much that i can personally tell is different from when i was first invited to use it. My recommendation to the devs here, give it more quality of life updates.

  • Good idea, horrible app Feb 1, 2018

    By give me free music
    I love the idea of Ello as a platform for creatives, and the design and layout of everything is on point. However, the app is the buggiest thing I’ve ever used. When trying to type a bio on my profile for example, I couldn’t type a single word without it randomly deleting or adding a space and jumbling up my letters. Also, I just tried 20 times to upload a picture, but it kept crashing before it would let me. For an app that depends on user content, this is a death knell bug. Another annoying thing: you can’t edit the description of a picture once you’ve posted it... come on. Do better. At least make the app enjoyable to use.

    Long story short, they hack my account and lock me out and said the post that I've been posting are #NSFW yet my account have been private with no ones in my friend list. They so called said my post was all over or searchable in the database. There are other social media apps out there and I don't recommend this one and I'll show off the emails explaining of which why the app was disabled because I posted adult them. Again, I didn't create my account for others other than me yet they hack it and told me all of my activity
