EDIT: Original (two star) review below, but I wanted to write and say if you’re not getting breakdowns, you apparently have to turn your “Advanced Role Notification Settings” on in order to see breakdowns on the app (this isn’t listed in the instructions on the app, but was a solution). Will probably still primarily use the website but this was a helpful fix. ____________________ ORIGINAL REVIEW: I’ve had this app since its release and it was spotty at times but overall a solid complimentary piece of software to use in addition to the website. About three weeks ago the app stopped showing new breakdowns. I still see them on my computer under the “fit for me” tab, but on the app, not at all. I’ve tried all sorts of troubleshooting and nothing. A bummer — this was great when it functioned.
As of this year, I get no role matches on the app. My profile is fully filled out and with the site I have no problem.
I haven’t seen a role match since January 28th. There’s plenty on the website. Please fix this problem!! Thank you
App doesn’t appear to be working. No matches at all even though there are on the desktop.
Confusing layout, buggy most of the time, could definitely use some improvements (especially with how expensive actors access is!)
You can’t read or check messages on this app! How is that in anyway sensible?! I had a callback notification that I saw on my laptop & then wanted to check the address on the app but there’s no way to access the mailbox. Useless!!! One of the fundamental criteria for being cast is whether you’re union or non-union. You can’t stipulate this in your search parameters which makes this app time consuming to look through. Far easier to search on the proper website. Also pointless having a non-interactive ‘help’ page.
AA has been working on this app for years - and what this app does is very disappointing. Their website is still in need of an update, as well. A few things I’d love to see: 1) Turn off notifications / ‘roles fit for me’ for different projects / roles (non-principle roles in student films, background work, theatre, industry, voiceover, etc). 2) A way to c mail projects that have sent an eco cast. 3) A required field to include a phone number when sending an invitation to attend an in-person audition. 4) Show which headshot was submitted in c mails / eco-casts. 5) A link to director’s reel. 6) Get rid of Slate Shots and Slates in general - this is a New York City theatre trend and doesn’t apply to film. They know who we are, who we’re reading for, and our stats are available on our resume. 😜 2, 3, and 5 mostly apply to non union films that don’t have a formal casting office or a known-body of work - perhaps that could be applied to just those projects.
The app is telling me there are no matching roles even though there are tons of matching roles when I log in on the website!?!?
I love all this app is presenting however it hasn’t updated available matches in over a month. Ive deleted the app and reinstalled, logged out and then back in, closed the app and turned it on... still won’t update. Kind of useless without that feature. I’d be a super happy camper if it did though. It ran great before that
It was fine for the first month I had it but now it completely stopped working for me. All it says is “There are no roles available” but when I log on to the site, I can submit to roles that fit me. Also I wish (when it was working for me) it had the messages tab like on the site. Overall I still end up needed to log on the site instead of the app at the end of the day which can be inconvenient sometimes.
