    Great app. Does exactly as explained on the App Store. It's nice to have a social app that shows only content from your nearby neighborhood with the option to go as far or near as you please! Great for local news, as and when it occurs, buying or selling seems easier as it shows only your chosen jurisdiction and of cors adverts for services are only shown from your locality! Like I said..great little app! I believe this will be HUGE in the not-so-distant future as its usefulness becomes known.

    Love the concept of the app and the ability to connect with your neighbours, but it keeps freezing on me, and everytime open it, I get a pop up screen that my hubby doesn't get. I've been trying to add my topics but the more buttons dont work so I can't add them. If this can be fixed and the pop up stops popping up, I'll change my review to 5 stars

    It's ok. NEEDS A DARK THEME! Pages too bright and wear on battery. Don't enjoy using it very much. Fingerprint security login feature? Too many redundant ads. Seems Newsfeed not always in order. Also get duplicate listings for the same items and postings. No way found to access the "About" section for the community. No tab for list of local area Leads in the Lead Tools like there is in the web version.

    Good app with great ideas! Can be very informative. There are many, nosy, busy bodies that as too many questions! Why were the police three doors down from me for three hours? Did anyone hear screaming last night? Are the Smith's moving out? I saw the husband leading furniture and clothes! I wonder if the house is going on the market? Things that just waste time and space and not informative to anyone but the sender. People come to complain! Loose or barking dog.Why wasn't the street plowed?

  • 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.

    Unable to set up a profile because when I go to my text messages to get the 4 digit code, the page I was on... disappears. It then takes me back to the beginning of sign up. So I changed my text notifications so that I can preview the text without having to go back to messages. That worked, but I changed my address and it keeps wanting to send a postcard to my old address. Hot mess.

  • 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.

    It's gone the way of the almighty dollar. Original developer probably sold to a major company. It's now nothing but ads, ads, ads! Even if you get past the ads, you have to deal with out of order posts regardless of the newsfeed preference settings. I don't recommend using this app, but unfortunately I don't know of another like it.

  • 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 & 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...!

  • Awesome APP why didn’t any think of this sooner?!? Jul 27, 2018

    By HollieM510
    Ok so let’s admit it, community and neighborhood values have changed in the past days 10 years. We no longer know our neighbors it’s just not the same. Technology may be part of the reason why, amongst other reasons too but hey if technology is keeping neighbors isolated and not out talking to one another then why not use it to our advantage right? .. and that is why I appreciate this App so much. It’s a place to share good news, bad news, warnings/alerts... missing pets/items...offer refer promote or inquire about services ... pitch ideas and generally just communicate with one another. It helps maintain a safer surrounding Keeps people aware and informed and I guess is the new way to be a neighborhood.. take what I can get but I have to admit so far there’s been at least 3 incidents in which this app has benefited me personally ... it’s great. Get your neighborhood involved guys.. it can’t hurt but I can help. Totally recommend the neighborhood app...at least check it out. Thanks to the developers ... one app I’m sure of is this one. Love it!

  • Unkind Comments & inappropriate language Nov 2, 2018

    By Disappointed Neighbor
    I check this site several times a day &amp; love to see what’s happening in our area. Sometimes I can help people, or at least encourage them when they have a problem. However, yesterday I was dismayed at the response of one of the “founding” neighbors as he made extremely disheartening comments to a lady who was fearing that a crime may be coming her way due to a man who had escaped from prison. The comments even used the “F” word (though he spelled it out) on this site which was inappropriate language for this wholesome site. How disappointing it was to me &amp; to the lady his comments were directed toward. He simply caused more distress for her as she was already fearing that an uncomfortable event could take place in her own home that very night! Fortunately, our law enforcement officers did a great job apprehending the suspect before he had a chance to reach her. She had simply asked her neighbors to kindly look out for anyone suspicious near her home. Isn’t that exactly what this site is all about - Neighbors helping &amp; being good neighbors?

    I have lived here in Montclair for almost 25 years; and since Nextdoor has been available, it is beneficial to read about happenings I might not have been ptivy to; like all of the problems wotg the Oakland Fire Dept this year—- OFD is more stringent this year than they were after the great fire of 1991 of which I was here—-This is only the second time in all that time I have been cited; and years ago one did not get fined on reinspection if one got cited; what woukd happed is that a crew would come in and bring your property compliant and OFD would bill u; also OPD would post a letter on your door if u were compliant or not ; now one has to go online or now u get a letter in the mail with no phone number to call and get an explabation: how unethical is that—- Also, I have seen properties in my neighborhood that are not compliant and the work is never done and they are still not in compliance in October—-I say favorites are being played—- Tree branches have to be cut to at leadt 10 feet off the ground; no bushes next to trees so as to stop the ladder effect for fires—-

  • Great App but some bugs lately Sep 27, 2018

    By DreamerDawn
    I&#39;m a Lead for Nextdoor and yesterday while trying to report a post, which is part of my job as a Lead, it kept diverting me out of the app to the internet page instead of the next step in the app. I wasn&#39;t the only Lead this was happening to. The internet page didn&#39;t have a submit button so I had to go back to the app and it was an endless cycle back and forth between the app and the internet page. When trying to report the problem, I found that there&#39;s no &#34;Contact Us&#34; in the app which I find quite inconvenient if you&#39;re having a problem. I think the developers should put a Contact Us link at the bottom of the Help menu so that Leads who need to do their jobs can get help immediately without the hassle of searching for a way to report a problem. Finally after searching through the Help via the website, I was able to find a way to report the problem. Other than this complication, I find the app very useful and easy to use. I wish more of the Leads Tools, that are on the mobile site were in the app too.

  • It's ok Mar 30, 2020

    By Shortcake 143
    The app is a good way to connect with neighbors in a new place that you moved to. For me I loved it a few years back. I moved to new state far from where I grew up so I needed the connection. During this pandemic my my my the crazies came out and spread so much misinformation and hate. So many people on there making false statements making others want to correct them like me. Then they bully you. I had to defend myself on there. I felt like it was a second Facebook. I quickly deactivated my account then thought no I need the connection living in a rural area. So I went back on with a new profile picture new name. Wish I could take my street name off. I made it as private as I could get and didn&#39;t add any information on there. Some is forced like street name. Someone needs to do something about the bullying on there and panic. It&#39;s unnecessary and dangerous . For now I&#39;m just using to be informed I&#39;m no longer interacting with anyone on there unless I ultimately have to. It won&#39;t be to defend myself. I will report bullying, panic and negative behaviors .

  • What I love about Next Door & some suggestions. Dec 12, 2018

    By VFV41
    I love having access to so much local news. I often find places I’d like to go, see and learn about traffic jams, crime, missing and found pets etc. I have at this point only 2 suggestions. The For Sale keeps and repeats items for many months and each time a price goes down, the earlier listing &amp; prices are still there. The other suggestion is about a volunteer group that I like a lot. It is a dog rescue and they find homes for dogs every week. One very positive place for them to get is on Next Door, I found them here because of the dogs they were showing. Apparently someone cuts their notices off saying they are inappropriate. They certainly are the kind of information I would like to see. Everyone at Rufus Rescue is a volunteer, they work very hard, the reward is a positive one, finding a home from some neglected, abused or lost dogs. On the other hand, it’s costs (has, neutering, veterinarian fees, food, supplies ......) are enormous. They recoup some of the veterinarian fees etc., through donations and ask a small fee to adopt- doesn’t cover a fraction of what they need to spend. They rely on donations from good hearted folks and just eat some personal expenses individually. I repeat, they are all volunteers. This is a group which should be allowed on Next Door each time, or at the very least, the person who blocks them should be identified and explain why they are blocking this group. Thank you, Virginia

  • Unexpected Side Effect Apr 10, 2018

    By @loganxfarmer
    This app itself is a great concept, and is executed well. Neighbors are able to community quickly and effectively in a way that is not possible on other social networking apps. I have no complaints with the app or the function of the app itself, all works well and is easy to navigate. My only complaint (which is not at the fault of any of the developing team or app creators) is just that this app will really REALLY open your eyes as to who you live next door to. I’ve found that people from my neighborhood and people from my whole town actually, are terribly racist. Once again, not anything negative on the app itself, it’s just that this social network DOES give some people a platform to speak openly when they really shouldn’t be given that platform. Some of my neighbors post what they think to be funny jokes but what are really racist or homophobic slander or prejudice. This comes, I’m assuming, mostly becuase I live in a very conservative area in Texas. Great app, hate my neighbors!

    It's a decent app until a neighbor makes a comment about oh let's say politics,them the app turns into a battlefield. I signed onto this app so I could help those homebound .I expected to do things like running errands, picking up mail, or driving to Dr appt. I didn't expect to witness neighbors nit picking and making judgement calls on fellow neighbors. On the up side, I enjoy the local info provided and love the thrift store they have on app. It's a lot of fun.

    Great concept & valuable updates on neighboring areas. However, the app looks cluttered when opened because of the layout and ads. I recommend an even more minimalist approach to posts that appear on the front page and more detailed when clicked on. On a phone, looking at the feed can get quite overwhelming from the size of the ads alone.

  • 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.

  • 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.
