Fantastic concept worth supporting, app needs work

I love buy nothing, whenever I’m declutterring I try to move as much stuff through it as I can instead of just trashing or unloading to goodwill. I will continue to use it and continue to support as much as I can. Obviously this is not a for-profit business and it’s expensive and time-consuming to develop a well-functioning app, but I wish the devs would SUPER PRIORITIZE fixing the messaging system. Please add a notification sound!! Please make the background process work better so notifications come through consistently!! The number of times I’ve kept people waiting because they were outside my apartment building and I didn’t realize is frustrating, and it’s always because I didn’t get notified of their message

For the love of god and all things left good in the world

I never write reviews because most of the time an app doesn’t warrant me enough to do so; however, I really do love this app and the concept and I want to see the developers follow through on what it means to have community. I’ve gotten to meet some really wonderful people, but god the constant crashing, loading circle of doom, freezing, being forced to log in only to be logged out some time after, and so forth—complete bootycheeks. I’ve never wanted to bang my head against a wall so much until I came across this app. And I know I’m not the only one, so, whatever the developers are doing, please, I beg of you: fix this app. Don’t disappoint the good people that utilize this tool by skipping out on quality.

Also, a “repost” function would be incredibly useful so people don’t have to copy and paste a whole new post. Especially for those who have multiple items, it’s time consuming and could be much quicker.

I’d really love to change this rating, so I hope you’re reading this and taking it into consideration. It really is a great app, but my patience is wearing thin from how much it has persisted.

Great app but very slow

Pro: It’s great to get rid of unused furniture and help others. Especially last minute when plans change. Cons: The app loads very poorly. Viewing this as a software engineer the loading times are unnecessarily slow and they need to fix their load times because it impacts user experience. As a client using the app, the load times and the lack of notifications at random times is annoying. I would have uninstalled the app for this. This happened last night were a person was messaging me and I never saw or received a notification. Only reason I knew because I thought it was odd and looked at the app to see a bunch of messages but no notifications came thru. I know it wasn’t my phone because other notifications from other apps showed fine. This is why I rated the app 2 stars instead of 5. When the fix the errors I’ll change it.
