  • A few things to fix Jan 3, 2021

    By Ayaunt
    I’m happy to see a platform just for us. I would like it to feel a bit more organized the amount of ad pop ups is a bit irritating. I would like to see it progress in a more cleaner layout for the iOS version. Other than that and a few bug fixes. This app could go very far and I very much would like to see it

    LOVE THIS APP It's a lil clunky but that it being easily fixed with more support. There should be an option on your own profile to add another board (it took me a little too long to find out how to add one.) I also think I should be able to like or repin by click and holding on an image. It's also a teeny slow. The idea behind it is amazing. I love POCs supporting other POC. I also love that I don't have to sift through non-black curly hair stuff on order to find the black version that works.

    The app is nice and easy to use, but there are some issues that need to be fixed. I’ve been trying to edit my profile but it won’t let me do anything. I tried to add a profile and cover picture with no success. Tried different sizes, tried the size they suggested and still nothing. Basically I can’t do anything to edit the profile section. And the last thing is about ads. It’s nice and all that the app is free and therefore ads are needed, but this is just on another level. I barely have the time to click on something that there’s an ad popping up and as if it wasn’t enough as soon as the ad ends there are one or two others immediately popping up again within seconds. I don’t mind the ads but the fact that they pop up every second just makes the app unusable and that’s really unfortunate.

    I love the idea of an app like Pinterest for us, but the app is kinda wonky. Then, why do I have to add all of this description and label just to be able to upload a picture. That takes too much time. This needs to be a whole lot better.

  • Great concept, improvable execution Jan 1, 2021

    Love the idea of an app where I don’t have to type “black girl” after every search! However, the app needs a few tweaks before it could replace Pinterest in my phone. Mainly, the app need to be optimized for larger phones (iPhone 10 and up), it feels like I’m squinting to see the content. It would also be nice if the ads were integrated into the app a little more seamlessly, as opposed to popping up in the middle of the screen or a banner that covers the menu options. Lastly, more searchable content would make me want to stay on the app longer. If these things were fixed, the app would feel higher quality; I’d definitely use it as my main search engine!

    I want to love this app but it seems to have bugs. Whenever i click on a post it kicks me back to the home screen and there is a lot of ad pop ups

    I was so excited to try this app. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed. The app needs a ton of work. It's ridiculously slow for one. It doesn't matter what I type in the search bar, the same items will appear. I deleted it after 15 mins.

    I would LOVE to be able to use this app but 9 times out of 10 the homepage won't even load. Eventually I just get an error page. I can't wait until it's running smoothly.

    The app has a lot of potential but it takes forever to load. It has good content but the app itself can use some work.

  • Amazing love this much needed Dec 31, 2020

    By haragirl212
    I love this app wish more knew about it but I will be creating and adding a lot of content to this for people who enjoy to make it our own and be very saturated with amazing things. I hope the app does get updated as it seems to be a bit out of style compared to Pinterest I hope we can get our own style and less old app feeling overall love

  • I love it Oct 3, 2020

    By Mystery gal221
    Thanks for making something for US. I do find myself typing for black gurl behind things and it feels nice to not have to do that. To see such a celebration of black woman and all that we are is truly amazing. My new favorite app for sure. Thank you so much for creating this. I am seeing so much greatness and style I can’t wait to take tips from. This is the best.

    I’m in love!!!!! This app caters to me, it has everything in looking for, it’s given me new ideas. Since this app has become available for iPhone it’s had me all In my phone. Every time I look something up it shows just what I’ve been looking for plus it’s easy to navigate and understand

  • Needs more publicity for more versatility Dec 30, 2020

    By Kyla I.P
    I’ll say this: I love the app and the concept. I’ve seen tiger reviews about how laggy it is and I haven’t experienced it since downloading. However I do think that you should give it more publicity. There’s not a lot of people on there and so I do think that once more people do switch over it would be even better! Other than that I feel like the app is great!!!

    Ughhh This app is amazing!!! It's a little choppy and has ads but this has so much potential. As a young black woman it is comforting to have an app dedicated to the black community. I am so proud and excited for what this app is going to do.

  • Will not let me save my profile information! Jan 6, 2021

    By Peach Breeze
    I love the concept of it and i wanted to try it because I have a Pinterest. I think this is a great opportunity to reach out and get myself known within the melanin community. However, if I can’t update my profile, i can’t let them know who I am and what I do. Hopefully this will get fixed or I will have to continue with Pinterest

  • Needs more searchable content Nov 2, 2020

    By Quitapay
    I’m thrilled that there is an app just for us so let me start by saying that. However a lot of the “pins” repeat so much that there’s just not much to find. However I am here for this and will be using the app regardless. I am sure that over time, the more people that use it and the more bugs that get worked out, the better it will be.

    I have deleted Pinterest because I'm in this for the long haul. Period. I love everything about this. It makes me so proud scrolling through. You gave us Pinterest but made it black owned. Love to see it. Sure there's much needed improvement but I get it, these things take time. I'll wait. And I'll still be using it in the mean time cuz this app is here to stay. Dont @ me. Please don't give up. Press on cuz i believe in this project. We all do.

    Soooo i like the app, however I see where it has so much more potential this app can be so much more here is a list of stuff I've noticed 1. the same pins continue to pop up. 2. It's very slow 3. Login process was difficult 4. Uploading and viewing images takes more than 2 mins 5. The notifications goes to via email it would be much easier if there's a notication panel. I am looking forward to a better experience!

  • Great idea, needs work. Oct 4, 2020

    By Classiemarie
    I love the concept! The app needs work. I can’t figure out how to post a pin. When I click “post pin” from either drop down menu at the top, it just takes me back to the home page. Sometimes the page keeps loading so I have to close an reopen app, and of course that takes you back to the home screen. I know it will take time to work out the kinks.
