Ilivemyhome - Options on the app
I love this app for so many reasons. I like knowing about car break ins, and things to be aware of for safety of my children at specific times in the day when people mention strange people in the neighborhood. I love responses I get about experienced neighbors have had with specific out patient care like doctors, dentists, and other providers in the area. This app is great for new comers and very welcoming. We learn about good restaurants, outdoor activities, and good vendors etc. The reason I gave this a low rating is because I would live the option to hide specific posts about animals on the lose, or families looking for their animals, and everyone letting each other know when their animals came home or when/where they were located. There have been SO many posts that I wish that there could be a separate option within this app to view the “animals on the loose” posts. It would streamline pertinent information for those individuals who are looking for their animals, and if one was wandering ppl can post in this specific area and allow non-animal owners, or those of us who aren’t seeing lost animals, to streamline the information on the page.
Obie the great - No longer able to view app in landscape
One of your recent updates eliminated the ability to use the app in landscape view, only profile. I access the app on my iPad and always use landscape as it’s easier to balance the device and to read and access the features. I’m using the app less and less because of this change, hopefully you will bring back the versatility of accessing in either view.
Overall it’s a good app and I enjoy it for the most part. Unfortunately there is a lot of ugliness and meanness that gets by way to often from “neighbors” as the leads evidently can’t keep up with it, reported or not. I think closer monitoring with more leads or other individuals would help minimize this. We as users can’t attempt to correct the people making any rude or mean comments as then we get reported and blocked, and users just reporting the comments and posts hasn’t eliminated those posts or comments quickly enough…if at all. If anyone blocks specific individuals then those individuals can still see those posts and continue harassing and making rude, threatening comments that we can no longer see or be aware of which isn’t right. So I don’t block anyone as I need to know how threatening they are getting…to not only me but to others as well. If people are suspended for bad behavior then the posts or comments that caused the suspension and were reported should automatically be deleted…permanently. They show back up again when someone is reinstated if not deleted.
Nodangnickname,ok? - Buggy, SLOOOOW, and where is everything??!
Nextdoor has become increasingly slower and buggier, and options that were easy to find before are now hidden and take several clicks to locate. You can swipe and swipe and swipe before the screen will actually scroll. Clicking on a post or image? Hurry up and wait, and half the time now the whole app freezes up. Even typing a comment is a monumental effort … I’ll have the entire sentence typed before it shows up on my screen. Then there’s the censors and moderation. I’m a neighborhood lead and have been for several years. I petitioned hard to become one. But then Nextdoor decided to dump a bunch of random people in as moderators. Many have absolutely NO idea what the rules regarding content even are! They’ll flag one word comments like, “Really?” as public humiliation. Because it was directed toward them or their pal. *true story* It’s frustrating to those of us who originally were tasked with this responsibility. Nextdoor’s auto-censor algorithms are utterly ridiculous too … flagging words like “stupid” or “jerk” and reminding us to be “nice.” 😐 Nextdoor: you have an awesome thing going here, great idea overall and content, but PLEASE bring back the earlier format! Speed things up, minimize the constant barrage of irrelevant ads, and go back to neighborhood leads only instead of all this random crap. I don’t expect a response to this review … Nextdoor isn’t real keen on that sort of thing either unfortunately.
Kathkeane - Deleted my thread on Covid which was a great thread.
Covid is killing people and I created a thread where people could help each other.
You deleted it.
I have a lot to say. First the idea is great. However you took down a thread that was possibly the most useful ever. I had created a thread where any neighbor could express their opinion about Covid and report their actual experience. It worked. People were reporting if the testing was accurate. They reported which drugs or otc meds they were using. They reported what equipment they needed to get through the sickness. They reported what their doctor said and what happened at the e r when they went. They reported on relatives who had died. We had many nurses chime in. IT WAS USEFUL. You deleted it and I never was clear why. You said it might discourage people from getting vaxed. Adults should have every piece of info available to make up their own mind. I recreated this thread without the comments and it was much less useful. I was actually crushed that you chose to take something away. Did you know doctors offer nothing? Did you know pharmacists have no drugs to offer? Did you know my entire family cheated death with 30 days or more of Covid? Do you know my daughter died from an immunization reaction? As did my friends daughter? It was a great and unique Covid thread that was a wonderful resource snd you destroyed it. Shame on you.
ObviousDWest - Scrolling hitches
Update: I uninstalled the app (which said it would delete its data), restarted my phone, then reinstalled it. The first couple of times I ran the app, scrolling was smooth again. What was quite weird is: I didn’t have to log into NextDoor again. So it kept some of my data, somewhere (key store?). It did ask for permission to send notifications again. Anyway, let’s see if the scrolling problem builds up again.
April ‘22 The scrolling hitches are still there. If you keep the panel moving slightly, even by dragging up and down, it will scroll smoothly through pages and pages of content. But the moment the panel stops completely, you cannot scroll at all for 3-5 seconds. Not can you hit buttons. The app doesn’t heat up the phone, so it’s not stuck in a loop. It just goes idle, and forgets to poll for input. Obviously, QA would have noticed this. So it must be an issue w iPhone 8, only. Maybe a bad assumption about equal update rates everywhere? I’m on the latest OS.
March ‘22: The last few versions have a performance bug where scrolling hitches, and buttons are unresponsive for a moment. No other apps on my iphone8 are doing that. I love the service and seeing local posts. Also, it would be nice as an admin of a group to be able pin/unpin posts in the app. Right now, you can only do that on the web.
Phoenix2000 - These guys have no clue how to write a decent app
They’ve “revamped” the app so now you can only see the latest few of your saved items, anything past the few they show is now completely inaccessible. The new app design is awful, it takes a bunch more taps and scrolling to do what used to just be a couple taps. I primarily use this for the stuff for sale, and they’ve completely messed it up, tons more painful to use and everything is much harder to use! The app is very spammy, because you don’t have anyway to exclude topics you aren’t interested in, only to “follow” to see everything. For example, it seems like half the posts are about pets, which I have no interest in, but also no way to disable. There's no way to disable notifications for just one thread, so any thing you ever do or participate in, you'll get harassed and inundated with a barrage of notifications for any active conversation. The only other alternative you have is to never participate in any thread to avoid the barrage of notifications. Yeah, that's an incredibly "smart" way to build a social-type app. Not! And even though the app supposedly has notifications settings, it seems to ignore them because I keep getting notifications for types of things I’ve clearly disabled. Because of this I have to keep notifications for the WHOLE app turned off, which means I don't see important stuff going on, which really makes the app pretty useless to me.
Glorberiz - Neighborhood App ( Review )
Hi my name is Kamryn, I have just started using this app today on August 24, 2022. Might I add whilst said I have only just downloaded the app this evening and within half an hour I have already received notifications from different people needing help with work in their yard. I know this app is just a fun nice way to branch out and find what kind of groups you’d like to be a part of which is hard considering the app has over thousands of different groups for you to pick through. Maybe you want to volunteer to help over at the Shreveport Veterans Home Center, or something as simple as watching your neighbors dog for the weekend whilst they are out of town having the time of their lives knowing their pet is safely being taken care of in the comfort of their home and with the most trustable neighbor they could find too. Don’t take my word or anyone else’s about this app, not until you download it and try it out for yourself. Who knows maybe you could make some cash helping others, or even make friends along the way. The choice is yours, but just remember with the Neighborhood App you will always have a neighbor nearby when in need of assistance!
Mike W - Way too many updates
This is 11 updates in about a month. You should not be fixing this many bugs in production software, and I certainly don’t see that many improvements wing made. Version history should be an honest change log, not just the same canned text every time. My internet service is capped and for me to consume over 1Gb per month just for updates to one app is totally unacceptable.
This is my weekly review of what’s new in this update. Oh, never mind. Can’t find anything mentioned. So I won’t waste time updating the app. This is a revision of my original review. The version history for this app’s last 25 revisions is the exact same text. If you are adding features, then let us know what they are. If you are fixing bugs, then you need to do more internal testing before releasing the change to the public. I need to know what is changing before wasting my time and internet bandwidth on non-applicable updates. This app is useful to me and works well. However, I am annoyed by numerous apps that do a weekly update. Please do more internal testing so you don’t have to update all the time. I really don’t see much in improvements from week to week. I have a slow internet connection, so dealing with 50 apps that need updating all the time is a major pain.
Handlebars1959 - What kind of app is this?
Imagine for a minute or two, you have moved into a new neighbourhood and you don’t know anyone including any of your neighbors nearby. You’re right 100% and it’s scary to attempt it. I agree 100%. Your location found at the top will tell other whereabouts you live, not your exact address. Thank Goodness for that! In this app you will find people from all walks of life including those who use chose words (nasty words) and they will get corrected by other people who use this app. Complainers will get corrected too. If you post something and it doesn’t sound right to you, let us know and we will be glad to help out. Same goes for what kind of home service, electrical services, roof repair, etc’s to go to find the right person to help you out. You can think of this app as the yellow pages of your telephone book and never receiving a paper cut. So go ahead and use the services to the fullest and enjoy using this app and who knows you might even run into an old friend from your elementary school years like I have. Enjoy!
1TheNightOwl1 - Adds and Clutter
This use to be a good app when I first joined. That’s all changed. There are way too many ads. It use to be advertising for neighbors that had businesses, now it seems to encompass the United States! The app has become harder to navigate and regardless of how I configure it, I continue to get neighborhoods (even more clutter) that I’m not remotely interested in, and of course even more ads to go with it. After reconfiguring, they go away for awhile sometimes, but inevitably come back (and yes, I save the settings). I quit using the app and have started going in the old fashioned way. However, while that seems slightly better, it still falls way short of what it once was and it’s constantly trying to force me to log into the app. Because of the aforementioned issues, I now rarely use Nextdoor anymore. I’m just about ready to delete this app altogether! Main issues? Too many ads, too much clutter, and neighborhoods I can’t seem to eliminate permanently. By the way, I’m not alone in this critique, I’ve talk to others that echo these same complaints. I guess the younger generation, particularly those that like or use Facebook, feel right at home. Suffice to say, I’m not in those demographics!
One last thing..The version history says the same thing on every update. It’s doesn’t list any specific thing that have been addressed; just general categories and therefore pretty useless!
Nordalieh - Users Spreading of Opinions Sprinkled with Misinformation and Flat Out Lies
I wish Nextdoor would fix this: users seem to be allowed to force their opinion of how others should use the platform and misquote or lie about the community guidelines. I have muted users who attempt hostility like this by using the “mute” feature but the muted users can still see my posts. I don’t want them to see my posts. They are not healthy people and I would really prefer the mute feature behave more like a block. I have seen an unprecedented number of authoritarian types attempting to control how others use your platform and ethically there is a problem with that. I believe we should follow your rules not individual rules made up by local bullies. If there was a way to stop this and have Nextdoor intervene when terms and conditions or community guidelines are misquoted by users then user engagement and traffic might go up and it would definitely create a more harmonious experience. Maybe an additional reporting option for misquoting your terms? I have essentially been bullied for standing up for others even though I correctly quoted your terms and conditions, community guidelines. What can be done to resolve this issue? I am 100% certain I am not the only one. Otherwise, I love this platform and would love to continue using it.
Da Sicilian - This app has what they call “Leads” these groups decide which posts are shown.
Nextdoor has what they call community standards which if you are in violation they flag your post. Ok I guess. But then you have groups that WORK for nextdoor called “Leads” which supposedly vote to have a post removed but yet? You don’t get a warning from nextdoor about violations. Nope. Well how can nextdoor give someone a violation warning in a post about LBTGQ concerns without being exposed for their bigot beliefs. Well they can’t of course legally. So they allow these “Leads” to remove any posts without explanation of why or how the LBTGQ posts are being removed. I posted a pic of Caitlyn Jenner and explained a fact that when he was 10 yo he always wanted to be a girl. Swipe post was gone, but not before bullies and trolls had a chance to comment aggressively. The bullies and trolls? ARE THE LEADS that nextdoor HIRES to eliminate the true community. Do not download this app they also sell your information to 10 software companies. This app is conclusive to dictatorship and keep their hands clean by having these “Leads” which are racist people that dictate what gets seen. And what gets removed. Their idea of community standards is to get rid of LBTGQ and minorities. Just check out reviews on this app on review sites. Some “Leads” actually admit to what I have stated. And these “Leads” get paid to bully and discriminate wow just wow
Really Petty - Next door
I originally joined thinking it was a great concept. But as time went on and I continued reading posts and even decided to respond to some, I found that this App was so one sided politically and otherwise, and if the coordinator or anyone else didn’t agree with you, they’d cut you like a knife! It got to the point that people actually ganged up on you or were simply angry and mean! I joined to find friends and all I found was petty people, mostly leftists whereby you couldn’t express your opinions without being called out!!! So that’s it! DONE!!!!
So here I am and decided to give it another try, but to no avail because it’s the same old Karen’s on here with their petty nonsense, their cliques and boring stories that any fool can read about in Esquire and they get so caught up in their simply minded beliefs but god forbid you jump in with your own different opinion and either you’re ignored, just passed over, or their discussions become private!
But this group isn’t different than many others I’ve read about from other states, it’s nothing more than a repeat of HS, much like Facebook for dummies, mean spirited small minded Karen’s who think they know it all! So again, whatever this account was meant for sure didn’t turn out the way it was intended, and I’ll say it again….the hardcore righteous right wingers are crawling all over the place!!!
ManadaBanana - No real privacy
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.
Pearlypeach200 - Toxic
Initially subscribed after moving to a rural area for local info. and to aid in familiarizing myself I with the new area 2.6 years ago.
In the beginning it was just that, with very little of the toxicity other social networking had become flooded with. I’ve recently deleted the app. I had to do the same with all other social media 6 years ago for the same reason. Mankind at its core has both compassion and immorality. Compassion, many times genuine, is also often used as a ploy to gain favor with others. This is sometimes referred to as (Virtue Signaling). Immorality on the other hand is the side people hide, more often then not. It comes to the surface in different degrees, held at bay only by what consequences a person would be forced to deal with at that moment. You see this on display most often with the personality change that takes place as soon as some people step into their car for a drive. Very often it’s shown in the different way a person interacts with people who may in some way be viewed as subservient to them. Children, The waiter at the restaurant, employees, strangers etc… Social media, including Nextdoor, having some potential good uses on another planet, has become THE place where Mankind can finally show themselves without the mask. Save yourself, save your children. Unplug….
Ohmygodjon - Good intent but not beneficial to the community
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.
The Pragmatic Corvid - Your satisfaction will depend on your expectations
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.
Junket82 - Just cancelled this app
I had been on this app for quite awhile and enjoyed it until recently when I had a difference of opinion and was very surprised with the behavior of many of the members. I thought it was a site where people acted like adults and you could exchange opinions in a reasonable way. But I quickly learned that if your ideas differ from the majority, you’re not welcome . So if you’re a person who likes to complain about everything- this is the site for you- if not , look elsewhere I received your response to my review , and it had nothing to do with removing anything - my problem with this app is that it’s controlled by a group of people that verbally attack you if you don’t agree with them - they act like childish bullies and don’t understand the idea that each person can have their own opinion. I thought it was a site for adults to rationally discuss ideas. I do appreciate the alerts of strangers in the area and neighborhood info , but as far as having an opinion that differs from the majority- don’t even bother. I also noticed that not all responses get posted. The site needs definite improving when it comes to everyone being able to express themselves
MY CONTENT WAS NOT REMOVED!!!! Are you reading what I wrote?????? I deleted the app on my own because of what is explained in my note to you .
Donthidethetruth - Poorly monitored/managed application for neighbors that truly care about their neighborhoods
First off they allow ads for puppies and kittens To be given away for free. It’s a known fact that this encourages those looking for bait for training their fighting dogs and good for their large snakes to pick up these animals. Applications that care about the welfare of animals do not allow ads that list them as free for this simple fact. Secondly the application is full of ads for all kinds of items pasted in between the posts. Thirdly I wrote a post asking my neighbors if they knew when google fiber was going to be installed in my neighborhood as their contractors had put up “no parking “ signs in front of all our homes two weeks ago but no one had started working. I stated in my post that I was asking because I had contractors coming to work on my home that would have to park in front of my home and that I had called the construction hotline provided to us but they did not know when the work would start or who was going to be doing the work so I couldn’t even try calling the contractor to ask. Next door sent me an email an hour after I posted this stating they removed my post because it was “soapbox “. Not sure how that is determined but definitely not an app that is interested in neighbors gathering and sharing information that is pertaining to them.
Mjm630 - Needs some work
Please add a rating feature for when users sell/buy. It would be great, if Nextdoor is linked to Facebook that ratings from ND would show up on Facebook too and vice versa
Please add time stamps on the messages!!!!! Add a way to mark pending for items. Allow a way to share a profile so interested buyers can see items for sale Great for finds, staying connected, etc. Needs work though. App is kinda of glitchy. Especially in main feed. In messaging, if you’re in the inbox and someone messages , it doesn’t appear. And the first message is hidden unless you scroll down a bit. Shouldn’t be this way upon opening messages or when in inbox already. Also, there needs to be more clarity on how to stop receiving notifications on certain posts. I tried to do it and I accidentally blocked the person and can’t unblock them on phone. Maybe I can from a desktop. MOST RECENTLY- when I list items for sale, I copy and paste the info for the item I just listed elsewhere and Nextdoor no longer allows to copy and paste. VERY FRUSTRATING. FIX THIS PLEASE Also, please make it possible to share a link within Nextdoor to someone’s profile so potential buyers can see a person’s listings. Otherwise, I have to individually link each item.
RosaEst1988 - Not what I’d expect from nextdoor!!
So I have been a member or user for quite some time and I’ve posted multiple different things to sell from new to used never have I been restricted from signing in until now?? All because this woman who I’ve never met and doesn’t know a dam thing about me send me the most rude,judge mental, racist message but here I am the one paying the price for her actions which is why I rated this app a one star. Until the situation is properly taken care of and she is warned to stop bullying other member's on the app then I will change my rating but why am I restricted from signing in? I have always followed the rules and posted as according to the rules but because one woman bad mouths me and assumes based on no literal evidence that I am selling stolen goods. I’ve posted in general if I ever needed advice or help finding a local mechanic I’ve never bullied, never bad mouthed never broken the rules so why am I being restricted ?? Have you even consider looking into her part because I have reported her and have proof of the messages screen shot to my photos that I will be more than happy to show you (NextDoor) treat everyone equally nextdoor and I shouldn’t be assumed anything based on my profile pic or the color of my skin or do I look poor like I can’t afford the items I’m selling so the next bully has the right to assume? No not fair at all.
Hypersniper82 - Nextdoor is a fraud
I created a business page to promote my local landscaping business. It was great for awhile. I got lots of messages and calls from my neighbors for my services. I got good reviews. I was recommended by a lot of people. I posted once every other day and did not message anyone unless they inquired. I kept getting emails saying I was violating guidelines or something and that I needed to create a business page, which my page already was. The messages also said my posts were deleted, but they weren’t, so I was confused. I thought it was just a generic message or an error. One day I made a post, and a “lead” or “administrator” messaged me on the app. That’s what he claimed he was. He said I need to stop posting advertisements. Kept sending me a link to the rules and terms. Basically he said I could not advertise and if I wanted to advertise, I needed to create a business page. After a couple messages back and forth with this person trying to figure out what he was talking about or what I was doing wrong , this person finally realized it was my business page. So he started back peddling saying Nextdoor wants no one advertising, ever. He told me the rules and regulations are misleading. The next day, I was blocked out my account. All my customers are outraged as am I. I cannot contact several of my customers. I lost out on a lot of business.
Rae98748695873 - WOMEN BEWARE: ZERO PERSONAL SAFETY
I hate writing something so inflammatory, but this is pretty important. Because of the design of this app, you are: a) not able to block anyone b) automatically and permanently linked to the person who invited you c) unable to remove this person as connected to your account d) will always see their picture on your home page. I’m guessing they also get a notification when you join/re-join. When I brought this up to them their response you can “mute” them and they won’t see your content unless you are in the same neighborhood. So if there is a person who makes you feel unsafe in your neighborhood - you cannot block them. If there is someone who makes you feel unsafe and knows which neighborhood you are in - they can change their address to one in your neighborhood to gain access to your feed. I’m also not sure how much of my personal info they have access to (can they see which neighborhood I’m in? What street? What state? My picture?). This is so far beyond unacceptable in 2020. Blocking someone on a social media app is simple feature and should be part of the first round of requirements in the first implementation. I’m already talking to the product team on this, but I think others should know that until this is implemented - your personal safety is not being taken seriously by this app.
Rynayth - Great app during a natural disaster
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.
Snazzy12 - The good, the glitchy, and the bad customer care
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.
Doc T Miller - A very happy camper :-)
Being relatively new to this program and sometimes and sometimes not such a patient person for which I apologize :-) not only is this next-door program a wonderful program but the products you provide the platform that you offer I’m actually profoundly amazed. I have finally figured out to some degree it really works and I have a business page called grace for life ministries. You all worked very diligently and patiently with me to get it up and running and it is very sophisticated. The platform that you have provided I mean very sophisticated. I have a son with mental challenges and I now have physical disabilities after a recent surgery and I think the general message presented conceptually and verbally as a therapist after all these years is going to be kindness, compassion quality and generous thinking towards others in light of their needs. I think it fits with what you teach and would like now starting a very new year. thank you for all you doing for being so patient with me. Happy new year to you. Sincerely, Dr. Thomas R Miller PhD.
Missypoo <333 - Loving it so far!
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...!
Zelzega - I’d give it a higher review if the notifications worked properly
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 ”, 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?
KatUS314 - App Usability is Inconsistent
Update: 3 days ago a new update came out and the app is even clunkier than before. Everything has a delayed action, comments won’t show when there’s more on the thread, and you can’t react to comments. They really need to figure out what’s wrong.
This mobile app has several issues that haven’t been addressed, and seems to be becoming more difficult to use from a software standpoint. Scrolling in the app is very slow and more often than not it freezes. This is also apparent (as others have mentioned) when you try to add a reaction to a post/comment, it doesn't allow you to do so. Another issue I’ve noticed this for several years and notified the help center (to no avail), is when you scroll through the “Finds” section for more than a few seconds, it heats up your phone significantly. Overall the platform is what it is with regard to social media, but focused more on your immediate town/neighborhood for updates and questions. Unfortunately, there can be a lot of cruel neighbors, but it’s a resource to better to know and avoid those who treat others poorly. Those who complain about “free speech” are the ones neglecting the fact social media is a private business that can regulate offensive and malignant content.
Krist123!!! - Don’t waste your time!
This app is full of bullies to where if you say something they will make fun of you they laugh at you they come at you and these are your neighbors!!!! Yes some of these things get reported and sometimes they’ll get shut down but it doesn’t get shut down by next-door there’s community reviewers like myself who reviews these posts (it’s like a job you don’t get paid for) that’s been reported and if you’ve got biased people who are friends with them they will not remove the comment and they will continue to let these bullies go on being bullies. I was even threatened with a knife by one lady on there it is ridiculous it is a site that has gotten out of control and next-door does nothing to monitor it even though I’ve reported things in the past I just got my account shut down for three days for re-posting news articles in a private group that I created! They said if you want to talk politics make a private group So I made a private group you had to request to join when you joined you seen news articles that I reposted they shut me down for three days and said that I shouldn’t post those things!!! It’s just news it’s not conspiracy theories or made up it’s actual news! I will not be on this app ever again!
Marketingal - Think twice before joining Nextdoor!
I joined the Nextdoor app to get recommendations for local businesses and services, as well as to keep up with events and/or possible emergencies affecting my local community. Unbeknownst to me, Nextdoor took it upon itself to leverage my identity (name and street name) to send out invitations to strangers in my community without my permission to get them to join the app. I was horrified to discover this feature when I received an email notification that a person I didn’t know had accepted my invitation to join the app. Clueless as to what invitation had been accepted, I did some digging and discovered that Nextdoor had sent out 200+ invitations in my name without my permission. I feel completely used and violated by Nextdoor and immediately deactivated my account due to the company’s unethical business practices and invasive customer exploitation tactics. The overly invasive nature of the app completely overshadows any positive features I previously enjoyed. In addition, the app indicates that users can opt out of this feature, but only after hundreds of invitations have already been distributed on your behalf to neighbors you’ve never even met. If you value your anonymity, privacy, and safety in your local community, please heed this warning about Nextdoor.
HollieM510 - Awesome APP why didn’t any think of this sooner?!?
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!
Disappointed Neighbor - Unkind Comments & inappropriate language
I check this site several times a day & 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 & 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 & being good neighbors?
Ds715 - Account settings don’t work and developers don’t care
Still no redo from Next Door and still continuous spam from all over, outside my identified neighborhood!
When I contacted them directly, they told me how to stop these postings. I followed their instructions and the posts stopped for a couple of weeks but are back. If I can identify my neighborhood, why do I have to sort through all this garbage?????
I have been trying to get this fixed for months. There are settings to turn off the “popular posts” from outside my area, but this does not work. I’ve contacted Nextdoor and the do nothing! ANNOYING!!!! It gotten to where when I go to my notifications, the first thing I see are the so called “popular posts.” These posts are all from California and New York! Why would I care about looking at photos of ducks from California??? I go to Nextdoor for information about my local neighborhoods. Next is supposed to be a local community app, thus the name. This is so annoying, especially when there is Facebook which stays local in the local sections. I know there are some people who are ok with it, and that’s fine. But allow those of us who have better things to do with our time to turn off this feature. Nextdoor told me that’s not possible! 😡
Kathy Nelson - Life and Business Coach
I’ve been a member of Nextdoor since it was launched in Carmel Valley etc. I’ve lived in Carmel Valley since the first homes were built by Baldwin and we only had a Ralph’s grocery store. My son’s statement at the time was “there’s no life east of I-5”. However, later as he went to Torrey Pines high school and played football, he found there was plenty of life.
I have really enjoyed Nextdoor not only for communications with neighbors, but by being able to both get help and be helped by others, but also shopping for restaurants and other amenities and especially people’s recommendations, which has been very helpful.
I find NextDoor both informative about our communities, finding the best services, helping other people with their needs and wants, and cherishing recommendations that turn out to be awesome!
I’m looking forward to tapping into the business side of Nextdoor as well, since I work (now remotely) in my own Life & Business Coaching Business, On Track Success Coaching.
Out of five stars, I give it a 5!!!
AudgeM - App Performance Degraded Recently
I have been using this app for 2+ years. Like most of social media, sometimes it’s great, and sometimes opinions are way out there. But what the developers can control: App performance. This has seriously degraded in the past 2-3 months. Now, when you open the app, it takes MINUTES - not seconds - for app content to load. Routinely. Should you ever post that you have something to sell, and someone message you, those messages seem to get lost and have inertia so days can go by between sending and receiving responses. But the primary issue is the load time of anything initially when you open the app. I understand this app is settings-rich, and loading the settings is a display burden. But it’s recently crossed the line between “Okay, it will just be a minute” and “Oh. NextDoor. I should go get a cup of coffee. And shower. And meditate.” Before I expect to see any content load. What other app has that??? NONE. I don’t know what has changed, but most days I now cancel out of NextDoor instead of checking in because of the extreme initial load times. If your performance is going to be so terrible STOP SENDING THE EMAILS PROMPTING ME TO CLICK FOR UPDATES THAT WILL NEVER NEVER LOAD.
Crazfan - Discrimination really
I posted 2 weeks ago about a POC and it got taken down for discrimination but the ones about whites are still up. Next door why have the feature of race if you’re not going to let some people use it. Also why pick and choose a bunch of Randos who weren’t even at the scene decide whether or not a post can be put up or taken down. secondly why not add customer support. I like to be seen and heard not just one or the other. I mean were you there next-door. No you weren’t so you can’t really judge someone’s post unless you’ve seen it for yourself. I know what kind of App you are. you take the ones down for POC but never the ones for white people. Discrimination is judging someone based on a disability or something or their skin tone. I wasn’t doing that I was just describing because I was going to file a police report eventually. Also how would it be discrimination if it included a minor who is POC. you’re protecting an attacker who was hunting down a minor. Thanks a lot next-door. 🙄🙄🙄 it’s that if I don’t see it it’s not there with you guys. You will protect an adult but you can’t even protect a child. Wait until there is an actual kidnapping or a murder that happens with this person. That will make some headlines I bet.
Jimcoop4 - Not For Me
I have been on Nextdoor for a couple years and any time I have made just a comment I get replies from nasty and viscous people who attack me for my comment. Now I don’t care if someone has an opinion and wants to reply with a respectful response I respond politely I have never wrote anything nasty or offensive unless I was replying to an attack or insult towards me. Unfortunately there are always a few trolls, nasty bullies, ones that simply attack, call you stupid. I always address the attacker with a reply just as nasty in return. An eye for an eye. Then my reply’s defending myself against the attack get’s taken down and yet the attack is left up. I was called by phone once by one of the administrators to warn me about my responses and when I pointed out the attacks he agreed then said he was just going to take the whole post down. It was another neighbor’s post but instead of letting me reply, or treating my attackers with the same actions the administrator just removed the whole post. Now I think they blocked me without a warning. I can not open up messages, the home page, or the notifications were wiped clean. It seems administrators certainly lean only one way with their views and they seem to use their power to disadvantage the other side.
A sit down comic - Oakland FD
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—-
Yairar - Disappointed
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
Anwyn33 - Drama & Connection issues
1 - if you are asked to become a lead, don’t.
2- connections issues constantly, just don’t ever try to use it on any WiFi
3- the app was useful at first but really the only thing people use it for now is to argue. As leads we used to have some backup from the powers that be in CA but not so much anymore. It seems I spend all my time voting on repeat police Violations. I know there are supposed to be consequences for those that continuously break the rules but nothing seems to happen anymore. I’ve reported those that have literally made threats to my life just for deleting their post & they are still trolling ND.
There are leads that really try to follow the guidelines and live up the commitment we made in this volunteer position. However, we are attacked over and over for simply requesting that a group of neighbors stop cussing each other out over something like a difference in opinion of dog breed. It really gets silly. I understand why we now vote as to remove or not remove posts but so many leads don’t vote based on policies, they vote because it’s a friend, Family or they are part of the current argument OR it’s their post/comment in violation. I know not everything is perfect but I feel like this app is missing its purpose when it could be so helpful.
Cardanne3 - Could use a few improvements
Every time someone comments on my post or is selling something I am interested in I have to get on Facebook to look up who they are.
I have had Nextdoor for two years. There are many benefits of being able to communicate with people living near you that you wouldn’t otherwise meet or know how to reach. For instance, there is a help map where you can find someone who is willing to pick up a prescription for you or walk your dog. Neighbors helping neighbors.
Biggest problem I have with the app is I have no idea who these people are because your not able to see anybody’s profile unless they are in your “neighborhood” and that is limited to a few streets. I live in a small town yet there are dozens of “neighborhoods.” So I have to refer to Facebook to know who I am talking to. Most people don’t fill out their profiles or even add a picture on this app too so that is annoying. The app needs to remind people to do that because talking to a blank face gets old. The profile is only a couple questions about yourself so why all the secrecy? This is supposed to be an app to get to know your neighbors. Falls short of that.
Lilly248 - Run by a bunch of bored Karen’s with very strict guidelines
I’ve never particularly like the app but after yesterday I dislike it even more. I’ve had people be very rude on my posts in the past and nothing was done in the past. Yesterday I tried posting the I was opening my clientele list for a short time if anyone’s looking for a dog groomer. It got flagged immediately and I was told it was against the apps guidelines. I was then told I had to post in For sale or Free so I did. Later on in the day that was also removed since I don’t own the business I work at. I did have permission from my boss since we haven’t been getting a lot of phone calls lately. I was am told I’m not allowed to post anything about openings or “advertise” for the business since I don’t own it and have to wait for people to post asking for recommendations. I thought this app was supposed to connect the community and it’s doing the exact opposite, half the posts are complete nonsense anyways. I will never be using this app again!
So if you like apps that allows all your neighborhood Karen’s to run it then feel free to download it and see blurry pictures of your neighbors dog and that someone’s yard is overgrown then this is the app for you.
D.a.n. M. - Toxic McCartheism + Privacy Nightmare
Think hard before you sign up: there is no way to delete your account or personal information if you change your mind. They, and your neighbors, will still have your name and address. Use a fake name, a (nearby) fake address, and burner email and phone numbers, else you will come to regret it. The obituaries are a good source of viable info if needed.
Key point is that when you join the app (a neighborhood) all posts are silently moderated by other neighbors that are secret “leads”. Leads can silence you at will for simply disagreeing with them or their viewpoint by removing any post. (Looking at you Rica Mendes!) The company cedes all control over local content to these “leads” so you have no recourse if they shadow/outright ban you. My real-life-neighbor was banned for posting links and explanations of federal and supreme court decisions that the leads did not agree with in a discussion about alleged racism at a local business. The reason: discussion of national politics prohibited. The site is full of brainwashed and uninformed ideologues (your neighbors!) but you are not allowed to post about prevailing (federal/national) laws if the leads disagree with the courts ruling. So that’s what you’re getting into here, a cesspool. And no way to escape.
Beth19283883938 - I wish it was better.
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.
DreamerDawn - Great App but some bugs lately
I'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't the only Lead this was happening to. The internet page didn'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's no "Contact Us" in the app which I find quite inconvenient if you'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.
Docmoore - Generally works as expected
The app works pretty darn well. I've had no problems until recent iOS updates (I think). I am currently using iOS 15.6 and I find that I am unable to copy and paste into NextDoor reply fields. That is, if I am trying to reply to a post and I need to go find some information like the proper spelling of a name or something of that nature, I will generally cut the reply that I've already created and come back to it later when I have the information I need. I am able to cut with no issues, but I cannot re-paste it into the same reply data field. The characters I just cut should have ended up on my clipboard, but they do not. If I go to any other app and paste it, whatever is there from a previous cut/copy is the only thing on the clipboard. There is a similar issue where I am unable to highlight and copy text from anywhere in NextDoor. I'm fairly certain I could do that in the past and you can do that on almost all other apps on any platform. NextDoor probably needs an update to address this.
EffyAins - Terrible interface
I downloaded this app to try to keep up with neighborhood happenings. But the interface is terrible. Posts are never in any kind of order and then if you refresh they reorder and you can never find the post you were looking at again. Once you mute a conversation it’s gone forever. I just didn’t want notifications on it, but I still wanted to be able to see it. I finally deleted the app because instead of neighborhood things it was mostly people complaining that a car stopped on their street for .2 seconds so everyone keep an eye out or « why is this restaurant closed no one wants to work ». If I want to see those posts I’ll go to Facebook. But now that I’ve deleted the app, I’m still getting emails about posts and it doesn’t allow you to do an unsubscribe all situation. I have to unsubscribe per category that people post in so I have to wait for them to trickle in, and I’m not convinced I’m being unsubscribed to begin with. My other option would be to re-activate my account, then unsubscribe and then de-delete. So if you want to get rid of the app be sure to unsubscribe from emails before deleting your account.
LaineyDel - App getting annoying in a few ways
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.
Appreferee - Pretty good app, but annoying to access
I have been on this app for a year or two now. It is good for reports of criminal activity and seems to be good for people looking for recommendations for craftsmen, etc. it is, however, very annoying to sign in and only be able to read one post before being required to sign in again ! To the point it is not worth the trouble to sign in at all. This seems to possibly being worked on, because for several days now I have been able to read a whole string of different postings on different subjects with only one sign in required. If that is to continue, Thanks! The only real annoyance for me is the many, many URGENT postings only to read that someone sees a dog or cat wandering down the street unaccompanied. This is not URGENT in the overall daily workings of life to me, but I always read the ones marked URGENT in case someone has lost a child or a grandpa with dementia has wandered from home or there is a gas leak and neighbors should evacuate, etc. if neighbors would reduce the use of urgent s when it is really not a life or death matter, I would consider the whole thing less of a waste of time.

Adrianb137 - A GREAT PLATFORM TO BELONG TO
I have been on neighbours since 2020. It is informative & since everybody is sharing information or just being friendly, it is a great help. I suddenly feel that I belong because everybody is supportive & ever ready with suggestions if there is a problem or if you tell them about your achievements, everybody will congratulate you. The greatest plus for this platform is that if you need help, all you have to do is ask. And a hundred neighbours will reply with offers of assistance immediately.
I love, love it!

GR8w8alth - SCAM ALERT -they send letters out using your identity
DO NOT SIGN UP - they will use your name without permission and send letters to your neighbourhood coming from you. I have had to help my mum deactivate her account and we have also reported and lodged and official case with our local police. My mum signed up thinking it was just a neighbourhood community group. However we found out through one of our neighbors that they received mail (as in an actual letter) asking them to sign up to Nextdoor and it’s signed off using my mums name. Needless to say, our family is super cross, shocked and outraged that a company is engaging in this kind of scammy predatory marketing and using the identity of its users to try and get more users on. Have flagged to my partner too who is a lawyer and will also submit a complaint to consumer affairs and the anti-scam watchdog.
Angelfran - Bringing us closer
Apart from only being able to view in portrait mode only ( which I have submitted feedback on) this app has been awesome in our neighbourhood for many reasons.
Our membership numbers are slowly growing and has given me back faith that we have neighbours willing to look out for each other and join together safely.
I have read reviews about personal details showing but these are set by members and I believe as a “Lead” person that the security offered is top notch
An app well worth using on a regular basis
Well done developers.
Chilliewoman - Neighbourhood is Not a dating siteI thought that was outlined very well in joining the siteHowever
I was approached by a fellow neighbourhood user ( not in the shire but in the bayside lga) after I expressed a wish to meet like minded seniors in my local area
He turned out to be fishing, and I asked him if this was so, he said yes. The neighbourhood site is not a dating site which I mentioned to him however he continued to ply his trade
We commenced a conversation of which I was interested to find out about a positive feedback companionship person.
It soon turned to every text conversation ( he preferred that to talking???)
being of a sexual nature/innuendo
and then there was not much else to be engaged with him except that he loved hugs and kisses
I stopped the conversation when we could not get further in our enlightenment of a genuine companion
I stupidly thought this nextdoor neighbourhood app was legit and not a platform for creeps
Greengoldred - Real and natural
I heard the good news about this on the news. So here I am. In my opinion this is not a dating app, but it helps you connect with people in your neighbourhood. It’s important to have friends and find people with similar interests as oneself and hopefully this app will help people find their mentor, and make new friends as well, and we should be open to possibility social health improvements.
LILO2101 - Elderly family
I noticed you can add family members to your acc but it’s limited to partners, pets and children.. I would love an update where I am able to add my 88yo grandmother to my acc. With understanding the vulnerability of children, it’s important to understand all ages of life especially elderly family members - maybe they have dementia and/or don’t know much English, or for whatever reason would benefit from use of the Nextdoor app/site but cannot fathom the concept of the internet😂. This would be a great addition to the app, and to share information about the accessibility of services for likeminded people, ect!
Angry Arnold - Be warned. They will make you an involuntary ambassador
Be really careful to read the fine print. When I signed up, I must’ve skipped something.
Some months into it, I suddenly started to receive emails ‘congratulating’ me on signing up some local neighbours. Then, my next door neighbour called me to say that she received a letter in the mail (yes old fashioned post) with my name on it telling her to join and download this app.
Against my will, my name had been used to advertise this app to people in my neighbourhood. When I complained they said I should have paid more attention to the fine print.
Some more research showed that this was a common problem - worldwide - with this app.
If you like your privacy, don’t join.
MB*MB*MB - Beware - Security risk!
They send out physical letters “on your behalf” with your name and street name to your neighbours inviting them to join the app. They say it is with permission - it is not! It is very difficult to opt out of this and is very upsetting to think my neighbours are going to receive letters with my name and street on them that I do not want sent out! I joined to see if the app might’ve been useful for me as saw it in TV and now it has put my privacy and security at risk. Update - I have emailed you already (before I posted this review and gave time for you to respond) using the email address you provided asking for help and have had no response and am disappointed in your cut and paste answer.
Ssherryaus - A great “place” to be
What a great alternative to other social platforms because this one is all about communities.
I can concentrate on the local area, find out about local businesses through recommendations, join interest groups or ask for help for all sorts of things.
Most people are helpful and kind.
Bev_1 - Nextdoor review.
I’m so glad that I have Nextdoor as it keeps me in touch with what’s going on around me and word of mouth is so great when wanting work during me around the house, I currently have James painting and doing maintenance around my home, whom I met through this app and he’s a reliable knowledgeable person who is helping me very much.
Dnomyar2912 - Review on Neighbours Next Door
This is another great initiative for people under Covid19 lockdown, but also for keeping an eye on our vulnerable neighbours be they elderly, disabled or in need of a friendly gesture.
We are all looking forward to the future with confidence and sharing of ideas to keep each other safe and well informed. God Bless, “DO NOT ROAM, BUT STAY HOME”
Lynn Thomas - Community connection enhanced
It’s a great idea, but I live in a small town & am having trouble getting the numbers - we have other small towns nearby & I wonder if we can connect with them so we can share community information like the upcoming markets, fetes etc. Hints from the developers most welcome :) cheers - great idea, great app.
Annoyedneighbour - Useless
I was encouraged to use this app in order to keep in touch with the neighbors.
As soon as I followed the instructions and received the verification email I downloaded the App as invited. I put in my email address and password and they were not accepted. After a few attempts, I tried to get the “renew password” email but a note came up stating that the email address is not recognised. I went to start the process from the beginning but was given a note stating that there is already an account registered with my email address 🤦♀️
AussieChick2 - Getting there
Great app. Have now become a “Lead”. Takes time to get neighbors to join. I just encourage members to send out as many postcards as they can and use word of mouth. Have had positive feed back. Has enough categories to be useful.
Cleo and Ziggy - Great information for area
I have enjoyed using this app for a few years It is a great communication tool for the local neighbourhood.
My only problem is that I am unable to disconnect from my old neighbourhood. I continue to receive information that no longer has any relevance.
Jhonathon Edwards - Great Application
This app is really great combining modern technology and the neighbourly relationships into a platform and way of communication fast and the ability to share ideas and services close to home by those who u might not know personally but can get to know via the application. Love reading local services being offered and the sense of community.
Azimuthal - Should be able to choose own area
My postcode doesn’t reflect where I live since the suburb boundaries are weird. Geographically I spend all my time in the adjoining suburb, & everyone thinks I’m there as well. All the local shops & amenities are in the adjoining suburb, I spend almost no time in my actual one. But now I’m lumped into my postcode suburb that I have no connection with. I think this app should be more flexible?
Nax84 - Great app, but…
I’d really like it if it recognised my new address. My account is stuck in my old suburb because it doesn’t recognise my new address. Admittedly it is a new build but other apps already recognise the address. I’d love to make my new suburb my main suburb and get to know my neighbours.
LostLink90 - Stuck on endless loop
After seeing the app on current affairs tonight I’d thought I give it a go and see if it works in regional areas as well, but after confirming both my email and phone number it then asked to verify my location which I confirmed only to end up on an endless loop of verifying location. After trying everything in my settings and also deleting and then re-downloading the app I never got pass verification. 🤷♀️deleted for good now
Ancy K - Rough start
What I find most annoying so far is that it can’t help me with my password reset. That’s basic and about to delete and create another account which is a pain.
The number of notification is alarming and fills your inbox with no option to unsubscribe as you have to do it for every time someone post something individually!
Still trying to navigate and like it.
Beatmay - Great Idea to have Neighbours in touch
It is wonderful to have a neighbourhood network where neighbours can share ideas. Sometimes small things we need to know can be a great help.
Satyen1234 - Looking forward for sort with recent button
Love the app, only issue is that it shows random dates posts. I would like to see an option to show all the posts by most recent.
TravellingIng - Can’t sell anything
Tried selling items on the community marketplace section and it is utterly useless.
Can never see photos and thumbnails can’t be expanded to view clearly.
Responses are hard to view and we never know what area the seller is from being unable to view the ads clearly. This flaw seriously needs some repair.
Anakinhelp - Logging in
I think it’s a great idea but I don’t like people selling things in groups. We have a market place for that. The administrators should remove them. Also I just used to chat when I wanted. Now it’s all passwords and such every time. Please keep it casual and easy to use. B T W Next Door is not a scam and they don’t invade privacy. The reviewer who thinks that must be paranoid
Steinbekkk - Annoyed
For some reason the app doesn’t let me verify my account with my phone number so doesn’t look like I’m gonna be able to try this app out
Jedhaha2 - This app is garbage big let down
#1 I can’t log in my street name isn’t even on the app so I can’t pick my house location
#2 my phone number won’t work for some odd reason so I can not find my neighbours because it can’t get my location and phone number big let down only plus if j would be my city story that’s it
Tony-ynoT - Privacy not respected by nextdoor
Nextdoor stated in several emails that they deleted all my personal details when I asked for my account to be deleted.
I did a test “created an account” and it seems that my mobile number is still in their database “phone number already in use”.
I am going to contact Apple in regards to this and the relevant authority. This is a breach of customers personal details. Breach of privacy.
Melitalb - Next door
I love all the questions and answers etc. only sorry it wasn’t around 30+ years ago! We could have used it more then. Informative and useful site.
Suchye - Giving and sharing...
A great place to get to get know your neighbours in your local community
and best sharing information as well as passing things on to be reused and relived again!
Lordfkiller - Opting out of emails very difficult
There's no option to opt out of all emails easily. Instead you have to disable email notification under so many different categories one at a time. I don't want any emails (except password reset etc). How hard is that? Terrible user experience.
Game Reweiver - Very annoying
I am so annoyed with this app! I happened to accept an invite from a neighbour and decided that the app isn’t for me. Although I deleted it and unsubscribed, I still receive emails every half an hour! I click the link to unsubscribe which is actually a trick to trick you to subscribe again! Can the developers please change their strategy?!!
Bridie's - Handy app..
Am enjoying the communication between the neighbourhoods- especially the crime awareness. It’s great to know what’s going on first hand - and to have an opinion and be able to share it ... so far so good ..
Team Shaun - Good program to help others.
Been using this program for a little while now i found it helpful to help other out
Patric.moberger - Great for recommendations
I have used this app for a month now and already started networking with the community, got a couple of jobs and a few recommendations for handymen in the area
Funkngroove kev - Great idea for community 👍
What a awesome way to connect community that otherwise may not have previously happened my hats off to the organisers 🤩🥰
Lauralee85 - App sends mail to neighbourhood using your personal details
Be aware that this app will post snail mail to your neighbourhood asking the residents to join the app and the letter is signed off using your full name and street name. When I contacted the app company about feeling this is a breach of my privacy they told me I consented to this when signing up to use the app. ****scam app****
Natmarene67 - Community relations
Very good way to feel a sense of community within the neighbourhood. Updates and ideas on how to connect and maintain community relations.
JulieMC270 - Plugging Opportunities
This app is a great idea. Especially because as this current crisis sets in, it is more and more important to help our small businesses in our Community by promoting them.
Meli ellie - Obvious lack of moderation
This app reminds me of gumtree. Full of free time good home kittens that aren’t even chipped - even though this is quite illegal the app does zero about it.
I guess they don’t mind illegal activity.
As someone that works in the rescue community and sees how many kittens are euthanized and don’t make it - every year - this app makes my blood boil. Won’t be using again
Zara's review - Great but...
So this app is awesome but I just wanna know if we are aloud to be rude and stuff because i don’t know if we are. Like when I mean rude I’m in a funny way rude?? Bc I sorta have been lol
Ziggy Zapata - Function not working
The app has five icons along the bottom of the main screen. Home, Notifications, Plus, Messages and Menu.
The Notifications icon does not work and needs to be fixed. I tried deleting and reloading the app to no avail.
Hwrite-oz - Scam Doesn’t care about privacy
I unsubscribe regularly but that is ignored and I keep getting weekly emails and now try to delete account but can’t do that either so now I am gathering evidence to submit to privacy authority. Given the slap dash way they manage your data wouldn’t be surprised if they were next on a hackers hit list.
Prayerful Micturation - Quite useless, also unworthy of trust
Insists upon ‘confirmation’ for accessing the useful functions (join group, start group, post, comment) and never allows an effective means to achieve that confirmation
Does stop them, and those they on-sell to, spamming you from the benefit of personal data this front of theirs harvests from you
Robbo.Robbo - A little confusing
When. I get a notification and open the app I can’t see which ones are new
LiveToli - Social engineering??
I have found since uploading this app I have received multiple texts daily with links to strange URLs…many more calls from voice generated marketing …just saying
I haven’t been able to adjust my privacy setting in app quickly
Questionable whether this is worth uploading!
Lilly8-) - Still getting other neighbourhoods in feed even after changing setting
Its a great idea, but the app doesnt work properly and there is no support contact email. Really clunky app. Also I got a lot of people advertising in my feed, outside the guideline use of the app straight away which was really dissapointing.
RADAUST - Full of advertisements - lacking purposeful content
Too many advertisements and no relevant content. Can source same info from other social media platforms and noticeboards. Disappointing.
Bwad - No iPad support
Looks terrible on a 12.9” iPad, essential these days. Also when signing up the default option should be not to display your full address and to send invites with your name as this leads to confusion over privacy for people that don’t read things properly.
Chunford - Spam
Signs you up to about 100 email notifications — there’s no button to turn them off. Have to go into each setting and turn off email notifications otherwise you get spammed multiple times daily. Wish I never downloaded this app.
Hn_317 - Privacy concerns
The app pushes you to verify the address by using your location and phone number. I am very concerned about it and there is no chance to clear your details from there app. Even if you deactivate the account, still your information is available to others. I hope apple can help me with this concern. I’ll report it to Apple.
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Teosyal - Great way to stay connected
I signed up not expecting much , that said what a pleasant surprise to see it actually works well . It’s based on staying connected , reaching out , helping one another . I love it !
Sinnrfmnfdxhkmfsd - Beware!!!!!!!
This app sends a letter out to everyone in your neighbourhood with your name and address at the bottom asking you to sign up. It’s disgusting. Do not get this app.
Cstoday - Enjoy Site
There are many alerts to lurking persons in neighbourhoods, many thoughtful neighbours giving to others and of course neighbours who have valued items for others to purchase.
Notices from Health agencies, Edmonton Police and etcetera.
Notices of lost pets, too!!
Thank you for an informative site. :-)
DropkickRJ - Terrible app
Sends actual mail to neighbors around you saying your name and address, just to get more people on the app!!! People on the app just give each other a heads up when ever "meth looking people" in old trucks drive by assuming they are the ones stealing packages, as if that's not discrimination!! Garbage. Never use it, Facebook 2.0 in terms of gossip and fairy tales.
Delightful13 - Nextdoor App is Corrupt and not private
This app is corrupt and used my personal information Name and Street to drop a letter at all my neighbourhood promoting the app. Please be aware they can and will misuse your private information.
Steph Fyfe - It just won’t die!
I’ve deleted the app and unsubscribed to the incessant emails every time I get them and they just won’t fkn stop! I don’t care to know about what my neighbours think the person of colour next door is doing. That’s all this app is, what an annoying product! Please leave me alone!
FeatherySpirit - Postcards could be less personal
I really like to be able to connect with my neighbours however I wish there was an option on the postcards to have it send anonymously. I just had the delightful 20 minute conversation with my parents about why their friends are getting postcards with my name and street name on them and how it somehow was “irresponsible” of me to do so because they don’t understand technology. It would have just been easier if you could send postcards but had the option to check an anonymous sender so instead of being sent my MY NAME, MY ADDRESS it could say “From a neighbour in your area” or something.
F&$kFace - Karen’s paradise
If you wish to listen to people complain about kids playing outside, salting and sanding sidewalks, dog poop and social justice signalling this is your place.
Also if you would like to keep personal details like address or name hidden from the public, you can’t.
Too invasive towards privacy. Nothing more than data mining.
Would give zero stars if possible.
Nfjdjdnje - ‼️DO NOT INSTALL OR SOGN UP‼️
They will take your information and send letters to everyone around your neighborhood, please DO NOT download!!!
Roro in the peg - A Little Too Much for Me
After having this app installed for 3 months I’ve finally deleted it. It certainly has good intentions, but to me it felt like a very toxic space for neighbours to air grievances. Lots of complaints about dogs, cats, what children in the community were up to, and targeting of POC as suspicious. I’ve deleted it for my overall mental health.
Rocknrik - Update
Can you possibly do an update that will get rid of the rabid liberal bias that goes freely unchecked by anyone? I guess there is not a real desire to grow this app just to let it be a place where ultra libs can go to enjoy word masturbation.
Spambot1 - Posting about Ukraine is deemed political and unfit
There are posts on this platform that say admins will remove all posts showing solidarity for Ukraine considering them political in nature. Shame on the developers. Uninstalled this app and will never use it again.
Ip~QuRiaz - Connected👀
Great app to be connected to the neighborhood, getting updates, seek advice and lots of fun👏⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Vidalhart - Steal your info
You think Facebook is bad try nextboor this app does not i repeat DOES NOT SUPPORT FREE SPEACH. Delete now . Don’t forget The warning..
Topcat471 - Next door.ca
I read ALL of the instructions and DECLINED to give access to ALL my contacts; my neighbours see me in person.
I’ll wait to see how it uses my info.
Why do i. eedd a nickname - Robbery
Installed this app now i have been robbed 3 times myIdentity has been stolen now i can't sleep at night .. delete this app fast ..
Chiller911 - Worst app that you cannot unsubscribe to
I have unsubscribed from emails from this app 3 times and these are still appearing every few days.
Go away neighbor - Impossible to unsubscribe
This app is impossible to unsubscribe from. Continuously get emails after unsubscribing several times and blocking the email. App is deleted. Do not get this app unless you want a constant annoyance.
Kruder1977 - Horrible app
Having been trying to stop the emails and I just keep getting them. You need to unsubscribe basically from every possible topic to have them stop sending you emails. Unacceptable!
FCC/Interpol - Trash
CDS Review During Covid-19 - Unsubscribe Does Not Work
Mamabear_77 - USERS BEWARE
Before getting an account with this app, note that it can be a very intensive and inconvenient process to delete your account, which may require several emails to their help centre. It is NOT as easy as clicking on something. They make it incredibly difficult to get out of. Had I known, I would not have signed up. Beware.
Christlm. - Unsubscribing
Can someone please advise me how to unsubscribe from this App.
I keep getting mail ,even though I deleted the App.
I’m sorry I got into this.
I dont want to be part of this - How can I remove my name?
I don’t like this!
ThomasJPB - Deleting
WAY to much private information on this app!
Burfoots - Disappointing
I thought this was for the neighbourhood in which I live. It isn’t. I’m deleting this app!
Darko326 - They just collect data
The process for deleting your account and data is extremely difficult and frustrating. I had to send multiple emails with my personal information in order to close my account and delete data. This should be illegal.
Bcvxcz - Nice idea poorly executed
While it’s nice to have a community app that is not FB, this app has a long way to go.
There’s no easy way to reach support from the app and when you finally find the form on the web site the captcha fails. There’s no way for Canadian Customers to manage Emergency Contacts and finally someone who could be tagged is no longer ‘taggable’ 5 minutes later.
I’ll try again in a year and hopefully it will have mature by then.
Usdfg2340 - Email spam
They will spam your email with notifications and when you unsubscribe, they keep emailing you from a bunch of different types of notifications.
Know it all. - Annoying garbage
This app is a great way to connect with your neighbours and community, with the exception of the dozen emails and push notifications you are guaranteed to receive daily *after turning off* all notifications in the app.
Nextdoor - you’re bad. Try again.
Chrises8787 - Crashes
This app crashes constantly even when I delete and re download
REALSUV - Data Mining Your Personal Info
Cancelled my account after taking and verifying all of my personal information because of an implied use for business purposes. Beware that this platform does not reach out. Major red flag. They are data mining your personal info for sale. Count on it. If you cannot use a generalized or generic name? Think about it. Beware.
Calogero Miceli Laval - Horrible , From Montreal
I just experienced a neighbour calling me saying they received a letter from Nextdoor with MY NAME on it without me knowing about anything…
It’s sad because i loved the app but this aggresive marketing strategy is too much.. And of course I said this to everyone I knew so I dont know how much longer this app will go on for.
Nerds_from_Space - Major bug in program
Accidentally swiping to the right erases message. No way to recover the message. Waste of time to find out what your neighbours are like.
App is not currently working. Started working again a day later. Not sure why.
App will not work unless I’m at home. Are they tracking me? They just decided to require i purchase a new phone if I want to continue using it. Another useless app that locks members out after a few years.
Sydney of bc - the Virus App
You want to volunteer for a virus to be loaded onto your system. this is the app for you!! Been trying to get rid of email notices for months and i still get emails after continuously unsubscribing to the email notifications. A month ago I deleted the app, i still get email notifications, I unsubscribe and continue to get emails, unsubscribe, and the emails continue the next day, unsubscribe, and the email notification is back, ….. I believe there is a law against an app like this!! highly highly recommend creating a messaging system with your neighbours and avoid this app with every effort!!!
this problem has been known for over two years, and nothing, nothing has been done to fix this, Do NOT Connect to this APP
Dexidodi - Keeps freezing
I really like this app, but it freezes all the time
CallMyGuy - I like the idea to bring communities together like the saying goes United we stand!
However I’m not sure if it’s my phone but I get double imagining and issues with viewing posts and comments it’s like two posts are laying on top of each other, is it the app or my devise anyone have any imput?
PrairieGYrl - Meh
Too finicky to limit your nieghbourhood.
QuitItWithTheEmails - Incessant emails
Deleting my account because no matter how many times I unsubscribe I keep getting email notifications every day, very irritating
Burnator - Can’t unsubscribe
I have unsubscribed from email notifications from my phone, and computer. I am far from tech illiterate, and I am still getting spam Nextdoor emails everyday about random posts. Should just delete app/account at this point.
Anniewhill - Won’t unsubscribe
Once they get you name they bombard you with emails. Unsubscribe does not work
Kiddo88888999 - Terrible app
Don’t sign up to this app, unless you want your emailed spammed.
I’ve been unsubscribing from so much spam mail and I still continue to receive them. Trash app!!
Amrit_0890 - Buggy App
Lot many bugs!! It points me to a different location. When trying to confirm address, it neither sends and email nor confirms with location. Deleted after few tries.
Tenet5953 - Feed doesn’t sort chronologically
Please fix this and extend my preferences, why is an app allowed to override the users’ selection after 60 days?
Golumpki - Censorship at its worst
Despite being respectful - if you voice controversial opinions or even disagree with someone you will be banned from responding. One wonders who the censors are behind this app where someone can report you for disagreeing and then your access limited. This is a a case for human rights and freedoms. Read the terms carefully - anyone at anytime can report you for absolutely nothing. “We reserve the right to refuse registration for, access to, or use of our Services by any person or household at any time and for any reason.”
Update: Now the site maintains there is a known « bug » that targets individuals but which cannot be fixed unless a new version of the app is developed. You can then no longer see what you are typing as the app blocks your message window past the first line. This is laughable. Now, they even make it impossible to delete Next Door Messages in your inbox. Orwellian nightmare.
Ninonmoij - Site
il est difficile de naviguer sur ce site, je suis un peu perdue…
Electro96 - Garbage app filled with racists and terrible design
Honestly this is one of the worst apps I have come across the amount of notifications Nextdoor send you is crazy and the amount of hoops you have to jump through just to turn them off is crazy they really really don’t want you to turn them off. Also
The app seems to be plagued with Racist users and is generally not a great experience all around. Can’t say I can recommend this app to others
Djkiang - Kind of a shady app
Tried to unsubscribe to notifications (way too many), yet it only lets you unsubscribe to certain topics. When I tried to do it through accounts settings, notifications turned back on when I click out of page and back in. Deleted app
Patty1059 - Couldn’t verify myself
Once I downloaded the app and made an account it wouldn’t let me access anything with out verification! I tried multiple times to verify myself through the app and the website but was given a blank screen every time! Worst app ever!!! 🤬🤬🤬
Rcmedia - App crashes constantly on iPhone 11 Pro
This app would be great if it worked properly but it crashes every time I open it and try to see my messages. I’m using an iPhone 11 Pro. Not recommended.
