Getting around the Backstage Casting app for iOS is easy.
Once you've successfully downloaded and opened the app, you will be greeted with an introduction screen that highlights some of the key features on the app. You can tap Skip at the bottom right hand corner to go to the Log In screen.
You will then be prompted to log into your existing Backstage account or sign up.

Casting Calls tab
Once you've successfully logged in, you'll land on the main Casting Calls page. This is where you'll be able to navigate through all the opportunities listed on Backstage.com. There are a lot of opportunities listed here, and more are added every day, so we provide you with a variety of controls you can use to sort these opportunities. You can change the sort order of the notices, apply search filters so you only see the results you want, and save searches that will send you notifications when an opportunity is posted that matches the types of roles you're looking for.
You can learn more about the casting calls interface, and how to save searches by reading the articles in our Casting Calls section.
My Applications tab
From the Applications tab you can view any Invites, Drafts, Active (submitted) applications, Auditions (any casting call with a Self-Tape Request), and Archived (expired) applications. You also have the option to view each individual application and update it, save it, and submit it directly through the app.
For more information on how to manage your applications, please check out the articles in our Applications section.
