There I was minding my own business adding captions to an image from Black Fashion Week MN, then all of the sudden Preview App freezes up. So I do what people usually do when your phone stops working. I shake it and cuss at it. And then I turn it off manually then turn it back on.
Now mind you, I have finally caught up and loaded all of my images to produce content for the next three months including hashtags, who tags, and alt. text for images (it’s a new thing I’m trying), but I was in the middle of creating captions for everything. You always want to create a good caption that will transcend no matter what medium you plan to post to.
So I turn my phone back on put on my kissmypassion music playlist, bop a little to Mario’s Music For Love, and scroll to my apps and proceed to open up the Preview App.
All a sudden, the app is acting like I’m brand new, asking me to sign in and giving me directions on how to use the app. I'm looking at my phone, thinking, “If you don’t get the eff outta here with that mess and let me finish captioning…” Only to see that none of my uploaded images are actually there.
Everything. Is Gone!
Honey Bunches of Love, let me tell you…!
I contacted support with a quickness I didn’t even know I possessed. While I waited for a response I went through a vast array of emotions in a very short amount of time. I envisioned my entire life falling apart due to this one incident. But rest assured I quickly came to my senses once I got a response from customer service support…
But I didn’t get a lick of help other than the suggestion to upgrade my subscription. I had a few choice suggestions of what support could do with their dumb*ss advice that aligned with kissmypassion, of the read between the line’s variety. I downgraded my subscription then decided I needed to take a break from social media, blogging, and the like for a while.
Oddly enough, there were lessons learned from this experience.
Preview App is a partially bullshi* app, and I believe with no real evidence whatsoever that this app is partly owned by of FB which explains the BS
Apps are not infallible so always make backs ups so you won’t get screwed over
Don’t sit on content. Post what you’ve got when you have a chance to ensure you don’t lose your work or creating a missed opportunity because you are waiting for just the right time
**Hint: It will never be the “right time”
Super SIgh ….And I suppose the Preview App may not be as horrid as I made them out to be, and I’m only 12.99989% sorry about saying they were connected to FB.
