  • Great app during a natural disaster Feb 17, 2018

    By Rynayth
    I’m from Ventura which was greatly affected by the Thomas fire, the largest wildfire to date in California. This app was the best way our city communicated with us during the 3 weeks the fire burned. Through this app, the city was able to quickly post information as they received it about the fire, when people could return home, where to pick up free masks for the smoke and workshops and resources for those who lost their home. Even after the fire was finally put out and the news crews left, neighbors in the affected areas who had lost their home were exchanging information about how to clear the debris, reporting suspicious activity and exchanging experiences trying to manage their insurance claims. I have learned about the difficulties of rebuilding after a natural disaster through this app. I thought this app was mostly just to buy and sell things with rude people but once our city went through a disaster, this app became invaluable, informative and helpful for everyone in our city. To the Nextdoor app team, thank you for playing an integral part in our city’s ongoing recovery.

    Extremely useful. Puts you in touch with genuine traders and workplaces, ie Takeaways that used to be Restaurants a deli bars etc. I note Richfields in Caversham Rd, The Moderation in Caversham and new places that are popping up like The Artisan Bakery in George St. This is run by a single man who operates from is home and gets extremely inundated with orders which I learnt to my detriment! Going back to The Standard Tandoori, sadly it will be closing after 40 years!!!

    I think Nextdoor is an important app. You can share information, buy and/or sell things, report lost/found pets. Announce meetings, closings, new businesses, and just about anything else you would like to, within reason. I use it all the time and reccommend it highly.

    I love the app. I would like to see more local spansors and less big corporate ads; however, it is a neat premis and I love being a founder/business sponsor. I can contact my immediate market which is where I want to do business. I can mix business with my personal life by being a good neighbor and keep an eye out for my closest neighbors.

  • The good, the glitchy, and the bad customer care Apr 19, 2019

    By Snazzy12
    This app is fine. It’s great for selling because it’s way safer than CL, but it’s really no different than any other social network. Everyone with their inputs and soapboxes is still here. That’s fine though, who cares. What burgers me about this app is that it is extremely glitchy and their policies make no sense. Every message I receive renders a double notification bubble, you can’t change pics out in your ‘for sale’ listings, even though there is a button to click to change them. You can sit there clicking “remove photo” until the second coming ... It ain’t coming down. So then you have to delete the entire posting altogether and repost it. When you have 15-20 postings, this becomes an issue. I’ve now moved exactly 1.5 miles down the road, which means (apparently to these guys) MARS, and they take the liberty of deleting my items. Not put their ability to be sold on hold, not muting the post, not even archiving, but simply deleting them altogether. When I contacted customer care about the issue, they said they could do nothing, as this was their policy. Hmmmm. This tells me they have a VERY lazy and/or sloppy coding team and complaisant customer care group.

    This app never allows me to join. It runs me in an endless loop of how my password is wrong - reset - password is still wrong - then, an eventual email about sending them a bill to prove who I am. What a complete waste of time. Oh. And, there are other times, it'll tell me there isn't a neighborhood where I live - even though I know some of my neighbors are on the app. I guess I won't put my business there!!

  • No real privacy Mar 7, 2020

    By BrainsBeauty514123
    You have no ability to choose not to display your full name. They prohibit anything other than your complete name. You have virtually no privacy at that point their support states it’s because it’s how you introduce yourself to complete strangers. But, I choose what information I give to complete strangers up and including if I am going to share my last name. I find it disgusting that they force it to be shown on the site not allowing the user to decide how much information of theirs is displayed. You can run the site and do a verification process while still allowing people personal display preferences. It’s disgusting and sorry but it’s perfect breeding ground for killers, serial killers, rapist and other. People get your name and your town and if they read enough of your comments I am sure they can use it for a hunting ground so sorry that I think the practice of not allowing someone privacy is disgusting. I thought the app would be great but it is a little to fascist to me. Until they allow some privacy measures for their users I won’t be utilizing this or any program of the like. I don’t introduce my entire name and area I live in to complete strangers especially not online. Not even my Facebook displays all identifying markers for people. So sorry I think this app needs to remember that there are sick people out there and they are helping not hindering those sickos.

    Seems ok but wow, waaaaaay too many push and email notifications. I gradually tried turning them off in the in-app settings, but it continued to spam me daily with all kinds of irrelevant nonsense. Eventually, the only way I could keep the app was by disabling all notifications in the Android settings.

  • Your satisfaction will depend on your expectations Aug 19, 2018

    By The Pragmatic Corvid
    I’ve been a Nextdoor user for several years. I’ve found it to be an excellent place to post things I have for sale (as long as they’re not vegetables from my garden, eggs from my chickens, quilts I’ve made, etc.). My neighbors have also kept me informed about various criminal activities in the area, events that might disrupt my commute, contractors both good and questionable, and opening dates for new businesses. On the other hand, discussions about serious and meaningful topics are often flagged for removal, even if the discussion is lively and respectful. Nextdoor policies also prohibit neighbors posting services they offer (babysitting, dog walking, house-sitting, etc.) unless the person creates a business page (a bureaucratic tangle few individuals are willing to navigate). Finally, it’s entirely too easy to flag someone’s post without first contacting them to explain the problem. So, if all you’re looking for is an online forum to learn about which roofers are dependable or get rid of that old furniture cluttering up your garage, you’ll be happy with Nextdoor. If you’re thinking you’ll have a place to discuss the positions of your local elected representative or the merits of proposed legislation, or let everyone nearby know about your side business, you’ll likely be disappointed.

    UPDATE: This app is buggy. I tried to post an intro about me but can't get the keyboard to show. As far as I can tell, I cannot make a post to a group before posting an intro. Once again I'm stuck. No help from first review, not holding my breath for this second. Initial revi I am trying to verify my account but the screen format is messed up. If I tap to enter the code, I instead hit the option to have a verification code resent. The images overlap and block the verification entry section.

  • Loving it so far! Sep 14, 2018

    By Missypoo <333
    Just joined in a few days ago and I think I’ll be happy with the concept... Staying informed and connected with your neighborhood and community can make for a better more enriching and fuller life! Promoting the feeling that “we’re all in this together” can only be a good thing cuz even adults need reminders on etiquette and how to communicate with both integrity and grace, which has sadly been going out of style as of late... This app can be the platform for recreating a better, bolder, more involving, more compassionate community with informative and inspiring neighbors who can guide us and teach us that we’re really not all that different from one another and most of us just want the same things... To love and to be loved, to be understood as we are and the capacity and openness to understand others without rancor but with respect and compassion. Well, I’m a dreamer and probably an optimistic, most times, and one can only hope for the best, yet this app gives us all the opportunity, the voice, and to take action to do more than just hope... one neighborhood at a time...!

    I enjoy hearing all the positive things about our Aboite area. Welcome to all the newcomers. I'm glad all the lost kitties and dogs get back home. It's especially nice to get names of workers for any projects off the actual recommendations people In our area suggest. Keep up the good info everyone.

  • I’d give it a higher review if the notifications worked properly Jun 24, 2019

    By Zelzega
    I’m still fairly new to Next Door, but right off the bat, I found it demanding and overbearing. I got bombarded with emails that I never signed up for. I had to adjust my settings to not receive any emails, then I had to sit there and unsubscribe. For push notifications, I said I only wanted Top Posts and responses to my comments or my posts, instead it sends me notifications to things I’ve reacted to, so I’m being spammed with notification requests for things I don’t want notifications for. Perhaps I’m missing something, but it seems like the settings are too basic, it makes me not want to use the app. I guess for now I’ll just turn off all notifications. There’s a pop up that says “oh you might miss out on &lt;insert whatever&gt;”, but I suppose missing out is better than being bombarded by unnecessary notifications. It would also be nice to prioritize categories, so that I could receive only notifications for specific categories. Perhaps some people like to buy from their neighbors, but that is considered low priority to me, so I would prefer not to see posts. Am I just missing something or does that feature not exist?

    This site is very unorganized. The posts are NOT in chronological order by any means! Very confusing and a waste of time to search for the more recent posts other than the ones done that particular day. Month old posts are still listed above the more recent ones. Some of the advertisements appear as posts as far as how they are set up not the ones others recommend. Typing my post message is out of my view on screen. So I type then have to post unseen. Optional below bottom answers cut off.

  • Disappointed Nov 13, 2019

    By Yairar
    When I first joined I joined because I assumed I would be informed in my area of new business openings in town, services needed, companies nearby, etc. My experience has been the complete opposite. The neighbors in a nearby community are very toxic and negative bickering back and forth - it’s worse than Facebook high schoolers. The neighbors take up the majority of the feed and lash at each other which I believe should be against the community guidelines, not to mention both sms messages and emails were coming in filled with these particular messages. I was looking for Nextdoor to be a helpful resource but for some reason I cannot turn that particular part off. I unfortunately live too close to that neighborhood and it continues to pop up so I have decided to sign off the app, unsubscribe all, and delete it completely. I would love the option to be able to block that community so I can get back and enjoy the app the right way. It’s really a shame. This is a great app for families in need of many things that other neighbors provide. I can only hope that maybe I am using the app wrong and don’t know how to turn off that part. Thanks

  • App getting annoying in a few ways Jul 9, 2020

    By LaineyDel
    Although I still enjoy using this app, there are two aspects that have made it incredibly frustrating. The first is that moderators/leads have way too much leeway to police the messages being posted, and removing things at will, often times without any warning or explanation. While I completely agree with the need to have people overseeing the content, too often it feels like leads are allowed to do whatever they want, including removing things that do not align with their own personal beliefs, or ideas of a business recommendation. Second, and this one is huge, why does the app keep resorting the order of things that are posted? I open the app on my phone, and the first entry is about horses (for example). I close the app, open it right back up, and now that same posting for horses is 15 entries down. At the very least users should have a choice on the way entries are sorted, because right now I’m finding postings that haven’t had a new comment added to them higher up then new postings from today. And this issue is severely impacting the user-friendliness of the app.

    In this app, on the For Sale ads section, you can Not see how many are interested in a specific item. However, on the web page, you can. . Another advantage of using the website is that you can open multiple tabs. .. One of the biggest annoyances, is the chat message audio notifications are sometimes not timely, or reliable. I often quickly message others to use email or SMS messaging instead.

  • I wish it was better. Jul 28, 2020

    By beth19283883938
    While this app is extremely useful for living in a rural community like I do, it’s not a very good app. It’s hard to keep my dashboard preferences intact. To be kept up to date with local emergencies, I need it to be in chronological order. It will be in order chronologically for a short time, but generally when I refresh the app I get random posts each time, including some that are weeks old with barely any activity. On top of that, as others have said, some posts will be removed even though conversation remained civil and on topic. These post and comment removals are seemingly random? On the other hand, when a neighbor posts blatant and dangerous misinformation about covid-19, the post will stay up despite it being reported under the specific category of Covid-19 misinformation. Most Facebook groups are run better than this. I want this app to work properly so bad. It’s glitchy, and notifications are weird, no matter what you set your preferences to. This app is very useful and important to have in a community like mine, where important information on wildfires and other emergencies are shared. It has potential. But definitely has some extremely annoying shortfalls.

  • Good intent but not beneficial to the community Apr 12, 2019

    By ohmygodjon
    I’ve had this app for over a year. While the app is useful for certain things going on in your personal community, you find there can also be a negativity by those close to you. In the year that i had the app I post only one single communication which was to find shelters near me that I could donate clothing to rather than dropping them to a Goodwill or other for profit organizations. The intent was to donate items to people in need in my community rather than give them to mass organizations that in turn use those items for profit. In less than 24 hours of me posting my single post, my entire account was suspended because I chose not to disclose my last name. I believe that info was not relevant to my intent to benefit my community however, someone within my community complained that my last name was not posted &amp; Nexdoor chose to delete my account based of that complaint. I’ve read multiple posts over the past year about petty things such as how to get rid of the homeless or how annoying cyclist are but I find myself suspended for not providing my personal information which was only noticed from a post meant to help my community. This app supports those that only have negative complaints about the communities it serves but does not support those actively trying to help those in need within those communities.

  • Their information is not up to date Oct 31, 2019

    By Noneofyourbiznes
    I received an email stating my account with Next door was suspended, when I emailed back and inquired why, they state I have a sex offender living with me and they sent me his file. First of all me my husband and daughter lived in Cloverleaf forest which is a campgrounds so everyone in there uses 910 N Broad Street, however everyone has different lot numbers. I don’t and never did have a sex offender living with us. So now it tells me in an email to contact the local sex registry and explain to them and they can do the proper paperwork to clear the household. I called them and they don’t do any paperwork for this. Ok there is no other way to contact next door to clear this up. Furthermore, I moved from 910 N Broad Street over a year ago and I live on the East Coast of Florida. I had next door app over in Cloverleaf when I lived there, so the community can keep each other informed of what is going on in the neighborhood. So when I moved and I got a new phone I have not used the app in quite some some almost a year. But they suspend me and any household accounts related to that old address!!! Not sure what to do next since their local sex registry can’t help me. I don’t even know the guy in the file that next door sent to me. Any suggestions would be great and helpful I sure don’t need this crap following me my family and family name.
