Wonderful app, must try!

This app is so close to the heart, when I say this, I mean it connects you with the people near you (kilometres away).
Every time you venture out to a new location away from home, you’ll see new feed from the local vicinity and connect with the people there!
Such a great way to get to know people nearby!

The telegram bot was better

Used scratchbac because it was conveniently part of Telegram. Now it's a separate app that I need to install and have separate notifications. I can't message people as conveniently and as feature-rich as on Telegram. There are many others that failed trying to use an app but ScratchBac succeeded using a telegram bot, I'm just extremely disappointed with this decision.

Furthermore, the app is buggy (logs me out randomly) and it's harder to use than Telegram.

I've totally stopped using this and it's back on Carousell. Good old times...

Developer Response ,

Dear Afiq,

our apologies for the bad user experience. We’ve decided to build our own standalone app and migrate from our telegrambot for the following reasons.

1. Bot is not accessible for many people beyond telegram users.
2. Bot user interface is confusing for many people especially those less tech savvy.
3. Bot limits the features that we can build. Features that we think can make Scratchbac much better.

We know that our app is far from great and there may be many bugs but we’ve made this decision to take on this tough challenge and not be contended with what we have. We will work hard to make Scratchbac better and hope that you will support us in our journey to make doing favours fun and easy.

Let us know what works and what don’t! We will listen carefully and work on them. Thank you for your understanding

Yours Sincerely,
Jerry Neo

Saw a huge change in UI and it is much smoother now! Great to be able to receive and give help to my neighbourhood friends.
