What neighbors are saying:
“Before Nextdoor, I didn’t know there were several qualified babysitters living nearby and looking for work. It was easy to feel comfortable hiring my neighbor’s daughter to watch my son after school.” - Patrick, Mission East
“This year for Spring Cleaning, we wanted to sell old appliances, tools, clothing, and electronics on Nextdoor’s For Sale & Free section. In no time, our neighbors stopped by to make a deal and take things off our hands. It was easier than anything else, and it feels good knowing our household items have found a new home in the neighborhood.” - Dan, Hayes Valley
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Nextdoor doesn't run GPS in the background unless you give us permission by turning on optional features that require it.
Time for your weekly update! We're always working hard to make the Nextdoor app even better, so your experience is fun, fast, and bug-free.
Ratings and Reviews
Great to be part of the Neighborhood!
I enjoy this app for the most part and find the good outweighs the bad for me. I like that our neighborhood beat cop can post information and alerts; it has an option to list items for sale or go to the marketplace if you’re shopping; keeps me updated on road closures/construction; neighbors can post/reply to each other - we’ve discussed alternatives to our local cable company; neighbors reporting suspicious activity and one even uploaded a surveillance video of someone stealing a package off their porch)...and the like. Plus you can choose how large you want your neighborhood to be - the whole city or specific neighborhoods. What I don’t like is really only the lost/found pets posts. When i first joined, I saw a post and thought how useful this is, what a beneficial service - and it totally is! But I had no idea how many animals go missing or are found in my area. Easily 4 posts per day on different animals - so I get 4 emails that day - because I get a new email for each new post (not the replies to them, thank goodness). Now I could alleviate this by reducing my neighborhood area, or by opting out of email alerts - either of which I want to do because I like to keep up with what’s going on in my area - I guess I’m a cyber-Mrs. Cravitts. Anyway, I think most people, even student renters, would like this app.
Giving up YOUR PERSONAL INFO BIG TIME! Developer contact hidden.
This is very odd and annoying. I remember long ago when it was not uncommon for apps to display only vertically.
“Long ago” being a friendly hint to the app developers.
Also, contacting the company is impossible to ask a question. I remember long ago (again with the “long ago!”) when app developers would try to hide from consumer contact. Overall, good features and great concept, but clunky and not consumer friendly in a few areas. Also, be careful about setup or you will have some annoying calls and e-mails. Would be more stars if only the developers were a little more transparent. There is not a single e-mail address in the app.
After a year I’m suspended
Hi. I received an email from Rebecca with no last name saying that there are members that have an issue with my screen name on Nextdoor. Why? If you view my history I have not caused any issues. I have attempted to sell things and I have given things away with no issue. I have been in the area for some time now and a member of Nextdoor for a little more than one year I believe and never has there been an issue with my name before today. My “neighbors” will never “know” me. I’m not out in the community and I keep to myself. My last name is real and just as Rebecca chose not to provide her last name to the email sent to me I should have the right not to provide my first name. How I choose to identify myself isn’t relevant to my behavior on the Nextdoor site. I could be Lisa Standsfield, but you would never know otherwise and i take major offense in you suspending my account as a result. How do I know that Rebecca is really a member? Or is in charge of Nextdoor compliance. Or is who she says she is? Here’s the other thing my name isn’t common first or last. I vote and pay taxes, but I can’t omit my first name on your system? A system I don’t even use that often? Really? Keep your account access. Knowledge of me on the Nextdoor app doesn’t in anyway affect my standing or lack there of in the community. You are wrong on so many levels.
