"Share Your Pictures With Who You Want"

Reviewed by / Mar 30, 2015

Bonfyre gives you a private place to share pictures with others.


Bonfyre is like sharing photos on Facebook, but it keeps them private and allows you to share them with only the people you want to. This photo sharing app has a lot of great potential, but it doesn't quite meet them. The idea is great, it has options for group events and such, but the app doesn't really function well.


Bonfyre gives you private photo sharing abilities, which is great. It has convenient options like group sharing too.


The app doesn't function well and is not user friendly.

    The app says I work in a totally different town than what I keep trying to put in. It also says to delete stuff to long hold and it should let me but it wont let me delete at all.

    Scrolling through posts, push notifications, shutting off icon in notification bar, and this is why app is so painful. Inquiry sent to support a little less than 24 hours ago. Two stars could drop to one but will be patient.

    I really love the idea for the app!! I think it is great and is actually exactly what I was looking for: private sharing, not crazy emphasis on sharing with the public. There are small UI things that I'm not crazy about, like the big font, but otherwise it's a pretty app. However, the app doesn't run as well as I want it to, hence the 3 star rating. Firstly, I don't like that I have to send an inv

    Kept getting notifications after turning them off. Wayyy too many notifications about every little comment and upload by people I didn't even know. Uninstalled after 10 minutes. I hate using this to share photos from events at school. I equate it as spam.
