Never had a problem but won't use again because of reviews

I found my first rental in Denver through app. Amazing, no issues, cancelled subscription and had zero unauthorized charges. Second time around we had to find a new roommate. Since it had worked out so well before, we tired roomster again. I did cancel subscription yet still charged $34. I disputed charges with and heard back from roomster customer service within a couple days saying they would refund charges. Amazing! We did have to find a third roommate, as it was a 4 bedroom house with no lease, we each room one week terms paying weekly fee and spring with potentials. There was a lot more sketchy people and took much longer to get responses. Personally, I wot give you the time of day unless you pay for subsection because I am and seeking serious individuals. Our most event roommate found is absolutely the best you could hope for. Took a couple weeks because of no responses but glad to have found him. Now months, I have to move out and I found out his card has been charged an absurd amount even though he cancelled the profile. He did some research and found multiple complaints to the better business bureau regarding the same issue. And the customer service line takes you directly to a poor ladies wrong number. I have recommended this app to friends but have nothing but negativity. This app use to be helpful but has gone under the radar. Obviously poor and sketchy management. Anyone have better suggestions?

Worst app I have ever used!

I am giving this five stars so it will actually appear in the list of reviews. If you give one star it automatically gets hidden. I downloaded this app a week ago. I reached out to over 20 people in a week. Most of them didn’t get back to me. But those who did all asked for my phone number and email. I realize they were data fishing. When I ask why they wouldn’t communicate via this app they stopped responding. Over 30 people reached out to me. when I didn’t respond instantly they removed the message. The same person named Motley messaged me 15 times. Sent a message and immediately withdrew it. I’ve never seen anything more ridiculous in all my life! In a week of daily searching, reaching out to dozens of potential apartments, and having dozens of people reach out to me I only interacted with one legitimate potential roommate. One roommate in a week! Everything else was fake… Everything! I sent five messages to support about this and also reported one of the users who constantly reached out to me named Motley. Customer service never responded to my questions. Never! Instead they said a constant stream of offers for me to upgrade my account. Halfway through the week my account was erased in the middle of using the app. I had to sign up and complete my profile all over again and was charged another fee of $7.99 for a week of use. Save your time, energy and frustration. Never use this app!

So disappointing...

I’ve had this app for a while. A very long while. I’ve paid for the subscription for idk how many months now. Sent numerous messages to people and received numerous messages as well. Initially I thought man this app is great! I managed to personally meet someone who could have been a potential roommate but she flaked on me. The next person I communicated with had an even better offer...until I found out they weren’t even the owner of the house I WENT TO and talked to about renting. They were scamming me thank goodness I never paid them anything. What measures are being taken to prevent this kind of thing from happening??? Since then, I’ve had no luck. The app hardly works and I have to sign in every time I use it. It shows pictures and names that don’t actually match once you’ve swiped through a few times. I don’t think that the messages actually go through most of the time or they’ll suddenly be removed so who the hell am I sending these messages to? I’ve even been told I was passed up because there’s nothing on my profile which led me to realize none of the details I’ve added to my profile actually loads or saves and therefore looks sketchy. This app needs a lot of work. It’s a shame I can’t get my money back because it’s just gone down the drain. I’m giving this until the end of the week only because I contacted someone but at this rate I’m sure they’ll never respond.
