I invested in this app early on and purchased many extras. Now I can’t use any unless I subscribe? That’s pretty crooked business.
At first I wasn’t sure about purchasing Unfold plus- but it was 100% worth it! As a Small business owner it helps me present in a polished and professional way- not to mention that it’s so much fun!
Super disappointed how one of the co founders responded to an artist they tried to exploit. I’m not going to be able to continue my subscription.
It’s easy and user friendly for story creation. The biggest and most frustrating flaw is that even with a brand account you cannot sign in from different square space accounts. This makes no sense especially in the age of social media consultants. I should be able to sign into client accounts and use their brand kits and then sign out and into another clients account without issue. The no account sharing aspect is very frustrating. I also wish they would allow some customization of the templates themselves beyond just color and font. Overall it’s pretty decent and I supplement the animations you can’t do in Unfold with Canva.
Upon reading Ryan James Caruthers exchanges with the Unfold team and their desire to feature his work in support of Pride month but boldly refusing to compensate him for use of his art — I simply cannot support Unfold and encourage any other creator or social media manager to also seek alternatives. It’s frankly outrageous that an app that believes in the quality of their work enough to charge creators a subscription fee doesn’t feel they in return should pay creators for THEIR work. Everyone deserves to receive compensation for their art, period.
The app itself is fine, but I can’t support a company that won’t pay artists. It’s unfortunate that Unfold would try to take advantage of individual artists, especially minority groups that would enhance Unfold’s public image
I was using this app until I found out they were not paying LQBTQ+ creators. DO BETTER.
Unfold thinks it’s okay to exploit artists, that’s a real bummer
Check out ryanjamescaruthers instagram post on 6/8/2021 that includes screenshots of Unfold refusing to pay for their work.
Stay away. This company exploits creative artists to benefit their bottom line.
