Mooch is a virtual inventory you create with your friends to share stuff you are willing to let each other borrow. Whether it's tools, clothes, books, baby stuff, or anything else, you simply take pictures of things you want to share or use the bar-code scanner to add items to your inventory. Then you simply click on "mooch it" when you want to borrow an item. Mooch will keep track of who borrows items, and also keeps a record when they are marked returned so you are less likely to lose stuff people borrow.
Why buy when you can borrow from your friends and neighbors. Save money by borrowing rather purchase items you only need once or for a short time.
Sharing with friends and neighbors creates goodwill and gives us opportunities to not only help each other, but get to know others around us better. If you drive past all people in your neighborhood to go to the store you miss an opportunity to see them when an item is shared and when it is returned.
Go Green - use less stuff
Whether you want to help the environment or you just want to be a minimalist, Mooch will help by allowing you to create less waste from trash or purchased items. You also get to return the item and practice minimalism by not have to store items you use temporarily.
Now find stuff to borrow from friends and neighbors easier with and SDK update for facebook and barcode scanner for adding your books, movies, etc to your inventory.
Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I have been needing this app for sometime! I have always been keen on lending things and forgetting about to whom it was lent. It would be nice to know who has a power tool that I’m in need of vs. having to call around or rent. I definitely could have used this during my fraternity days in college. Awesome!
Needs to be more usable
Very good setup but just 2 suggestions:
•I get that you want to limit it to a friends-only network, but a public exchange should really be considered so that it’s more usable when your own network isn’t as interested or very big. It can be made based on a rating system so you know whether to trust or not trust someone.
•the Fashion option should be expanded... I was hoping to use this set up a clothing swap network with friends, but for that to work there needs to be more room to type the size, brand, type of clothing, etc.

Finally, a Way To Track Loaned Items
This makes loaning so much more convenient and efficient. Over the years I have lost a humidifier, 22’ rifle, untold amount of tools and general stuff like DVD’s. Now I can Finally loan without the worry that the borrower forgets who they borrowed from, as well as me on whom I loaned it to.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
