Great job as always @steepshot! Thanks for the update.

Is the image gallery feature only available for Android? I've got an iPhone, so currently I use the web interface in order to publish pictures via steepshot.

How may iOS users participate in the contest anyways?
Thanks for getting back :-)

Hello! This feature is available on iOS and Android.
Now it is very difficult to say the number of iOS participants...

Cool! I just noticed that I missed your post that announced the launch on iOS. Thought there was still just the Android version available. Sorry for the confusion! I'll be happy to participate in the contest via iPhone then :-)

I didn't ask for the number of people actually, just the way they may participate... But as I said, it was a misunderstanding from my side.

Appreciate the dedication and hard work you put into this app to make it awesome! Running contests is a great way to increase interactions on this app, because a lot of people will surely want the rewards. And I really like that the rewards are quite high, especially for the first spot. 50 Steem? That surely sounds very attractive, haha!

Good luck dear @steepshot you are my favourite app and will be no one in coming days and will be most loved one for everyone.

I will participate in this contest :)

Thanks for the update you are doing so great that I don't post on Instagram anymore keep on doing this

Looking forward to sharing some images of the micro vacation I'm on!

Do it! We will look at them with great pleasure!)

Given that the code is free would you consider an F-Droid build?

Really it is very good app and it is very easy to use.I use your app and i love this .I will participate your competition

Good job🖒

I like the way team steepshort quickly address the problem of app and fixed the bug as their top priority. Thanks for your input. Hopefully the way you are doing fantastic job soon you will give tough time to instagram. keep it up @steepshot

Fantastic work guys, keep the developments coming! Steepshot is great!

This is a Steem killer application! Instagram that pays you :)

When they fix the loading speed and HD photos yes. 🚄

wow great! thanks a lot . my husband @panoramicview will surely join this! is there a minimum number of photos for the gallery?


Wow this is wonderful, I can't wait to get started on this contest. I hope I will win thanks for sharing this amazing post @steepshot

good comment tui ki bal bujis salar bota vonga.

Awesome initiative :)

Just got myself involved with Steepshot!

Liking it already


Sounds like fun..I know my dog loves it :)

Let's do this Steepshot :D Instagram Killer!

Definitely :)

Good say. Salar hadaram toder kotha kisu buzina

Hey love the idea of the contest! What do you mean by using the feature Image Gallery? Where do I find it? Can I find it in the web application too?

Hi! It means that you have to upload several photos in one post like it is in the GIF. This feature now is available on iOS and Android.

but do I have to upload that many again? because I already got a good looking gallery you know what I mean?

Yes, i know. But you still do not understand me :)
I have already look at your profile, you really have got great images, but they are separate.
I mean, that one of your posts should contain more than 1 pic
like here

I see perfect ;) I will do that tomorrow then, thanks for your help! Have a great rest of the day

love to try posting the best picture on stepshot

Wow ... !! A contest that can be a motivation for those who use steepshot applications.@steepshot

Hello, missing 2 minutes I hope I could enter the contest, it was difficult for me to upload the photos with the slowness of the internet.

You are great developers! The application has taken full advantage of its great capabilities on the Steem platform! This is an opportunity for professional photographers and even amateurs like me. The Bot is wonderful. Again, I sincerely thank you! I love you guys!

It's a real pleasure, day after day, to share a photo related to my erasmus journey! And the experience is getting better and better! I hope this great job will continue folks!

Finally I wanted to thank the Steepshot community for making a social network social again!!

PS : For sure, I would participate in the photo contest! However, I didn’t perfectly understand how are we supposed to proceed? Could you please be kind to clarify? What do you refer to when you say “Image Gallery”? Thank you people :D

Thank you for your reactivity !
When does it start and when does it finish ? Can you send me the exact dates ?

It has been started yesterday and will be finished the next Tuesday

Hello! Thank you for such a pleasant feedback!
I mean that you have to upload several photos in one post, like you can see it here

Will there be higher resolution photo support eventually? I still feel that the quality could be much better on photos. I'm also curious if the slowness loading up the app ever will be fixed? Since it's currently not even close to Instagram in loading speed on Android.

Yes, with each release we are closer and closer to the perfect condition!

Awesome to hear! This is a great project and I really loved the first ad.

Thank you for this. I really am pleased with the latest update, except for the problem with the photos. Look forward to being able to download the updated app because that's it's I mostly post - a bit like I use Instagram.

How may users are using it?

Very nice software and very good initiative!

Hi @steepshot I was using web version today for firefox 52.8.0 unfortunately I cannot upload photos again. It says file type incompatible but it was fine before. I was uploading in jpg.

Hello! The problem may be in the file itself. Try please another one. Or simply update the version of your Firefox.

I was able to upload today with a different photo. Can you tell me why there is "no rating yet" on some of the posts of steepshot?

How to create image gallery??? I need guidance please

I just tried uploading a gallery of 6 pics and it wouldn’t load . So I brought it down to 5 and it still won’t load . I even listed less hashtags in hopes that would help and still won’t upload .

Was only able to get it to upload when I used only 2 pics to post to the gallery . When I picked 3-5 it wouldn’t upload .

Hello! We will check this issue asap in order no one else face this problem again. Thank you very much for you report!

I’m having the same prob again. My post shows up in steemit .... but not in the steepshot app feed ?

@steepshot it looks like only one of my two recent steepshot posts showed up .

GO forward @steepshot and SmackDown instagram !!
