We reviewed Fstop.fm a while back when they launched their web app beta, and we generally found that we liked the service despite issues that come up with all new services, like few members and small bugs here and there. Among out biggest ‘asks’ for the service going forward was for a true mobile app to streamline and make use on mobile that much easier.
The new iOS app basically replaces a need for the web app for most iOS users. The functionality is effectively the same as the website, just in app form on your phone. Which makes access quicker, with less hassle having to log in each time, and the annoyance of viewing the mobile optimized website on a full-sized computer screen.
You can refer to our review of the service for the general breakdown of Fstop.fm, the service has not changed much since then, with the exception of being more polished, having more users in more places, and of course today’s launch of the official iOS app (which will likely spur even more sign ups all over the place, only a good thing if you ask us).
We downloaded the app quickly and gave it a run through. We did not encounter any bugs or functionality issues, and so far we are very pleased with the functioning of the new app but further testing will, of course, be required in order to give a full opinion. If you would like to see us do a full review of the new app contact us and let us know.
In the meantime, iOS users can now hop over to the App store to download Fstop.fm to get connected with other creatives in your area also looking to collaborate.
