App is full of glitches, but it’s heart is in the right place!
I love the idea of the app, and Im not sure what alternatives there might be for sharing supplies directly with those who need them, but theres a 50-50 chance that I can actually post or respond at any given time. I’ll stick with it because it’s heart is in the right place, but I sure wont count on it being available to help me out of a vacation-induced supply shortage (so far- knock on wood- my insurance covers enough, so for me its a nice way to clean out the supply closet or bail myself put of an awkward travel mishap). The community is generally full of good people, although there's a collection of scammers also, I like to think that all the annoyances from the user end are made up by helping a few people who legit need it.
I Like this App but...
I really like the diabetic community approach of this app and the positive possibilities it offers. There is even a place where diabetics in need of supplies can buy sell and trade supplies. This is where the app only draws 4 stars from me. There are way too many resellers trying to buy your supplies at lowball prices so that they can resell them at a huge mark-up on other sites. When you enter this part of the app you get an explicit warning message that resellers are not allowed to participate in this part of the app. When you list an item there all you get are resellers responding to your post. There is no policing of them and they are rampant. So for this reason I will only give 4 stars. Other than that, this is a great app for the diabetic community.
I absolutely love the idea of this app but I don’t post a lot because you have to go through so many hoops to delete a mistake and you can only post one picture at a time and no video at all. Also I don’t like when you go into a post to finish reading it; it takes you back to the comments instead of the rest of the original post.
Developer Response ,
Please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org regarding mistake deletion and picture/video suggestions, we'd like to ask couple of questions about that. Thanks for your feedback!
