We offer people a way to give, receive, share, lend, borrow and express gratitude through a hyper-local gift economy model in which people can share wherever they are and true wealth is measured by the web of connections formed between people through sharing.

Ratings and Reviews
I know that the app is a pretty new thing but apparently no one stays on top of it. Only one person ever answered my messages and I was grateful to help her. It seems that if things have been “gifted”, then the posts don’t come down/or the people just figure you can read their minds.
It is really sad as the original way I was introduced to Buy Nothing was on FaceBook and I am apart of an amazing group. I have deleted the app unfortunately. Maybe it just needs more help then ppl can give it.
A great concept, app is a little klunky
First of all I am so so grateful that this happens so we can all get off Facebook! That being said, the functionality of this app is still pretty clunky and there are a few fixes (app dev team, I’m looking at you) that need to happen before it will have the full functionality and ease of use of working within Facebook groups. First we need to be able to reply to comments in a post thread —Without replies the comments section on posts is pretty difficult to follow. Additionally in the Messages section, I do not understand why the sent from me messages are displaying on the left side of the screen, and those of my message partner are on the right — this is the opposite of how (at least the English speaking world) expects messages to appear, so it’s very graphically confusing.
Bad Reviews are Outdated- This is GREAT!!
I am so happy to be able to get off Facebook and keep on BuyNothinging lol in a setting made for it. The old reviews seem to be from before it was even officially released. You can now login without linking to socials, upload pictures and videos easily, react to posts, private message, etc. As someone who has participated on Facebook BuyNothing groups, this is so much better! When you make a post you can identify it as a gift, ask, or gratitude off the bat. One of the biggest level ups from the Facebook experience is having a feed of your own activity all in one place even if you’ve moved locations. For those of you new to BuyNothing, enjoy and welcome to the community I’m so excited about the future of the movement with this app!
