  • Great asset to stay connected! Nov 20, 2020

    By Cathy Lu
    I appreciate this phone app as it allows us to meet, stay connected and help our neighbors out. I also love seeking and buying items from each other, especially with urgent messages and pet found/lost. I also appreciate their recommendations for a certain business or information exchange like gardening tips, in need of borrowing a lawn mower or “help! My kid dropped the egg carton. Does anyone have a couple of eggs to spare?” :) I like how I can hide the sponsored posts and keep scrolling to read neighbors’ post. The problem I have is: Next Door doesn’t regularly verify if each user still live in the current address. In my neighborhood, a lot of people have moved in and out so I don’t feel comfortable I sharing any information with people outside of my neighborhood and am tired of people not responding till a year later, saying that they’ve moved out. Under “For Sale & Free”, I appreciate the Expired feature because people would post and leave items online and simply dont respond back whether or not it’s already sold. I’d like to request another feature if possible, allow our own posts for sale to have the following status: available, pending and sold. That way, people won’t keep bothering me with “is it available?” and not respond back whenever I say “yes”.

    This is an awesome app! The only thing that bothers me, is that at least on the Android version, there is no time stamps in the messages section, I wish they would add time stamps/a read/sent/delivered function like imessage or messenger so you can see if someone read your message or not and be able to see what time someone sent you a message after you have already replied to the message! Otherwise a great app! If any developer views this, please add this function, as it would be very useful!!

  • 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.

    The app seems like it is useful and full of features. However, the developer needs to fix the issues with features not work and buttons within features not working. There is no action indications on buttons. As well the "other" buttons produce absolutely no action at all, this includes a complete lack of a drop down menu or an other menu of any kind. Hopefully an update will be pushed out in the near future to rectify these issues?

    I really like this app. It's a great way to connect to your community and find people who are experiencing similar things as you. I enjoy the sell goods part too. Unfortunately there are some issues with uploading pictures and updating my profile and registering my email and i don't know how to fix any of that. Is there an app support? Also I don't like that when you react/like something you start following the post.

  • 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.

    Not fully functional, there is no way to see the About Community section, app is very bright, need a dark theme. Needs a direct way to get to the map. still no real update notes, still haven't fixed the things they need to fix. More worried about politics and political corrections than fixing their app. The new app is quite pretty but I still don't see a way to turn on a dark theme. In addition there is still no way to get to the "About Community" page for your community. No changes in update.

  • 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.

    This is the dumbest app for trying to figure out what's going on around you. I get alerts for things outside my neighborhood and then have to hunt down what neighborhood it actually is. Low and behold, it is indeed NOT in my neighborhood but I get a constant alert about it. You should allow people to modify boundaries or actually send alerts pertaining to my neighborhood.

  • 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.

  • 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 think that nextdoor is such a nice resource for communities and for people in the community to relay messages of not only safety concerns, which I find most important and is the main reason I use the app, but it's a great place for others to find and look for help for a variety of needs, finding reliable help or if someone needs work done or finding good recommendations from neighbors. Its like the local news but more personalized specifically to your local area and community.

    I love this app. However, there are people who are very helpful and give great feedback/referrals but then there are some who love to complain about anything and everyone in my area. It's unfortunate that the administration allows this when people have informed them. It is like I said it is a great app for people who want referrals and information and to get to know your neighbors. Over all I would recommend it to any of my friends and people who are new to the area to join it.

I am very pleased with the app I use this app. daily more then any other app. 85% is my rating. 15% of the app is not going good for me simply because I can get carried away with some of the not so bright individuality of some of the peps on there.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • Controlled by the political right wing in Chico Oct 23, 2020

    By Hankgw
    Nextdoor in Chico is controlled by the political right wing who have managed to grab many of the lead positions for themselves. They have several PACS and committees who work together to post derogatory and frightening remarks trashing Chico, then saying that the current council members need to be voted out and their candidates must be voted in. When people post to defend our town, they become extremely abusive and if the defender continues, their leads get together to bar that person from Nextdoor. Recently, one person was stalked by the main right wing attacker and repeatedly accused of using a fake name. The right wing leads completely removed her and her posts from Nextdoor until she could prove her identity. I have been blocked from posts on Nextdoor because someone submitted emails in which a main right wing leader blamed an opposition leader of having two people’s posts removed. She even described how she thought it happened. In fact, I had asked that they be removed and submitted the abusive names they had called me. When I posted that I had done that, not the opposition leader, they removed me from every political post and revoked my right to ask that abusive post be removed. Does Nextdoor have a monitor I can speak to who can help me figure out how this is happening?

  • 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.
