Buggy navigation

My review is for how the app functions, not Blind as a platform. That said, the app has a lot of annoying bugs. When scrolling, it will randomly pop up whatever ad is in screen as if you tapped it, even if you didn’t tap it. Also, if you try to tap a specific post, sometimes it will bring up a post a few spots above the one you tapped as if you tapped much higher on your screen. Exiting the post and tapping the same post will bring you to the correct one. Sometimes, when you exit a post, the screen won’t change but if you tap the screen again, it will bring up a new post as if you were on the main page, even though the screen itself didn't update. All of these bugs make me think that the developers have not properly designed the interface for the app. It's still usable but very annoying to navigate since these bugs occur near constantly.

Shoddy, unpolished mess

This app has the level of polish equivalent to that of a coding bootcamp capstone project. There are so many poorly implemented features- the fact that you can’t like a comment in a thread without first visiting that thread, that notifications literally do not function correctly (I still get notifications on threads I’ve explicitly turned the off for, but I’m sure that’s totally accidental right guys ;), the fact that blocking the poster of a thread then trying to visiting that thread by notification crashes the app, it seriously seems like they have 2 mediocre engineers developing the entire app. The quality has not changed in 6 months. They have done literally nothing to deserve my attention and user data. The app is so frustrating to use at a base level that I recommend everyone just stop, it’ll be better for our mental health in the long run.

Holy mother of cod, your search function is the most steaming piece of garbage I have ever had the displeasure of using. It literally doesn’t work. I literally cannot find a single thing because everything has to be case sensitive. it’s beyond pathetic and you should fire. You should fire your utterly talentless engineers.

Interesting concept, not well thought through

Very interesting idea and the thought behind it is good, but not actually very well thought through at all. Anonymity is great to spark real conversations, but it is also a breeding place for name calling and very toxic behavior. Once you’re in on your company’s board, you are there forever. Blind does nothing in the way of continued (yearly?) verifications, which means your company group is a good portion of former jilted employees there just to get a rise out of others, rather than participate in constructive conversations. This is probably its biggest flaw.
It’s an easy fix, but there doesn’t seem to be any interest in actually facilitating truly constructive conversations as they state. A bunch of culture and engagement buzzwords, but really just a place to breed workplace toxicity.
