Pros and cons of Artkive - Save Kids' Art app for iPhone and iPad

Artkive - Save Kids' Art app good for

This was recommended to me by many people and Im very impressed with it. Its also easy to use and you can create custom products. This is a must-have if you have kids!
I cant begin to explain how great this is! All those boxes of art work, certificates, and school awards? All on this app! Except for the dearest pieces, all clutter is gone. Easy to use, smart design, a joy to share.
Love the fact I can enjoy my childs art instead of having to file it in keepsakes folder
I love this site! I photographed all my childrens art and then at the end of the school year I make a book for each of them its such a wonderful way to collect and store all their beautiful artwork as a keepsake this is truly one of the best sites there is
This is one of my favorite apps on my iPhone. Truly a MUST for any parent who likes to keep art their kids bring home.
I use this app for all of my kids artwork, but recently starting using it for mine, too! My mother is moving out of her house and tasked me with clearing out my childhood bedroom. She saved EVERYTHING. Artkive to the rescue! The latest version is great.

Some bad moments

Worked great before but I cant open the app anymore since the update. Please fix.
Costs money and privacy to use app after purchasing it. Didnt get anything free.
I rated this 1* because a pet peeve is the opening screen makes clear that Sign Up is Required to use app. I didnt sign up. Please make such conditions clear before purchase.
App crashes as soon as I open it. So sad. Can I get the old version back????
Used to love this app, but not updated and cannot use any buttons on it now that I have iPhone 7.
The app wont even let me create an account to login. I keep getting "bad gateway" messages. Had high hopes! So far... obviously not impressed.
