Ratings and Reviews
Nice app and overall good service with a few minor issues
I really like the app even though the name is kinda cryptic/meaningless (in English you just think of baddies lol!) and the reason I can’t award 5 stars are as follows: 1) when I listed my room I had to do the form 3 times because in between writing the whole listing then realising I didn’t have a photo of the bathroom I took the photo only to come back to the app having timed out or something and lost all my hard work. Then next time one of the images wouldn’t send - some infinite loop issue and there’s no save feature so third time I had all the text images prepared in a document so I could copy and paste! Second thing is that it would be super handy to see the name of the person inside the chat/conversation with the person so you know who you’re messaging. Having a few chats on the go at the same time it gets kinda confusing! And thirdly, the app occasionally reports new messages (a badge on the home screen/iPhone) but when you click into the app, there’s no new messages to be seen. All in all, a good app and I’ve had some good contacts so far, despite none of them ‘converting’ into housemates...yet ;)
Bad experience - not the app’s fault
The app is easy enough to work (the chat feature could be improved majorly), but what’s missing is a feeling that I won’t be scammed/preyed on by older men. I had on my profile that we’re a couple, but still I received invitations from much older men living alone. This is really weird and creepy. Furthermore, even when we did agree to live somewhere, after taking our deposit, the renter said he had to revoke his decision for a friend who couldn’t afford a deposit. Luckily he paid it back in full (after a rejected refund transfer and a lot of confusion), however after this experience I never used the app again as I feel there are not enough checks in place to ensure the people are legit/reliable. We should be able to leave feedback on people’s accounts so other users know who/who not to trust.
This app, while sometimes useful, is a breeding ground for scammers. The user verification process is far too easy to fake, requiring only a phone number, email address and Facebook profile - all of which can be manipulated. Scammers will often deny you visits to the properties and instead demand an immediate down payment. While it is easy to spot the legitimate ads from the scammers, it is extremely annoying scrolling through waves of fake ads. My advice would be to improve the verification process. I found one account that was using a photo of the chief operating officer of Facebook, Sheryl Kara Sandberg, which was somehow verified as a legitimate account. Apps like Bumble require users to send in a short video to verify their identity. While time consuming, it will make the app far better and massively improve the verification process.
