New update is klunky 1/5
The newest update changes the user interface entirely. Features were added, but ease of use is gone. Form over function. If I have set up a campaign, I would like to know what’s going on with it without going through ten hoops.
Steer clear, this is a terrible app 1/5
By Trey Chadwixk
I’ve had the gofundme app for about a week now and it is consistently a terrible experience. The app crashing is less a chance than it is a guarantee. The app stays open for at most a single minute before crashing while performing the simplest action. I attempted to uninstall and reinstall but it made no difference. This is a terribly optimized app at the very least and I now have to use the site through safari in order to do anything with my campaign whatsoever. Don’t download this app.

They hold your money for no reason
Thanks so much for the oportunidad

Helping me through a tough time health wise. Thanks
Just the best 5/5
GavinW go fund me 4/5
We started this campaign for our son as he has no insurance. His ER visit and surgery will no doubt hit $10k. Although it has only been 3 days, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of friends and family.
So far, GoFundMe has been a very simple and easy program to use.
Help to reach goal 5/5
Please help support my gofundme page and donate. I am a struggling college student with very little options to pay for my tuition please help me reach my goal, any donation is very much appreciated. gofundme.com/f65bm-tuition-help
They took all my money and won’t let me campaign anymore. 1/5
I had two campaigns and as soon as I tried to send the donations to my bank GoFundMe took all my money, wouldn’t let me verify my number again and won’t let me do anything to my account. I’ve worked a year to get those donations and now it’s all gone. I’m helpless and just plain upset because I tried doing a good cause and GoFundMe has taken it all from me. There’s no number to even complain about this so this is the best I can do. I advice everyone NOT to get this scamming app.
So Grateful 4/5
Thank you for being there for us!
Easy to use, set up and works well 5/5
By Rico puerto
I set up my campaign after hurricane Maria and was surprised how easy it was. You can set up and post from the mobile app in a few Minutes which for procrastinators like
Me is invaluable. I contacted support when I thought there was issues with the site and they got back immediately with advice/solutions but it turned out to be user error. Thank you!
Great fundraising source
The app itself is ok, not very user friendly & often asks you to complete tasks on a computer. All fundraising sites are going to take a percentage, they have to make money too so stop complaining. The customer service is pretty bad in responding to emails, but it is what it is. Would rather use Kickstarter next time.
Great app 4/5
I love the gofundme app! It makes raising money simple!
My niece is in children’s hospital fighting for her life and all it took was someone messaging #Gofoundme with lies and they took our gofoundme account down.. without doing a proper investigation.. and they don’t have a phone number for anyone to call and talk to them plus they said if you message them they’ll get back to you within 5 minutes and that’s a lie... I think Gofoundme should be responsible for all the money that we had donated to our family!!! My family is getting ahold of the better Business bureau and everyone we can to put it out there that gofoundme has Frauded our family we have sent a lot of money for others family’s in need through gofoundme but when our family needed the help out account gets taken down!!!
Great idea, but I'd change the name to pay it forward 5/5

Great resource!! 5/5

Surviving and thankful one day at a time 5/5
By 5th grade Math & Science
I greatly appreciate the accessibility that GoFundMe me is providing for me. Some people wouldn't know what I am going through if it wasn't for all the tools that it has for me to update my page.
This app is not the problem is the fact that people only care about certain other people. I work 2 jobs and barely can make it by. I made a gofundme to see if i could possibly get some assistance with fixing my vehicle because its my daily and i drive my fiance around because she can't drive but no. Everyone views my campaigns. But no one will donate, but if someone wants to buy a portable mini apartment everyone is donating. Like wth people i was put in the hospital for CO2 poisoning from my car that i couldn't afford to fix but y'all will donate for that?!?

Where is my transfer? 1/5
It has been 8 days since the transfer to my bank was scheduled and the money still hasn't arrived.
Super easy and effective 5/5
By KABAM is awful
Takes no time to set up and enables help to come from places you'd never imagine.
Easy to use! 4/5
This was my fist campaign. It was easy to setup, spread the word to friends/family, say thank you and receive the funds!! Thank you for helping me act! Instead of just talking about my dreams! - Color your life! Keyoko
Gofundme rocks! 5/5
Amazingly well put together program app and experience. Wonderfully user friendly and effective. Have tried two kick starters and failed but on track to succeed with this. Thank you so much.
Cents for Puerto Rico 5/5
It is easy to set up and very reliable.
Recipients need ALL the help! 1/5
By Pay phone 22
I'm disappointed in how much is taken out by GoFundMe.com before the recipient gets the remaining amount. These families are struggling in more ways than one. And people work hard for their money, and they've been very kind and generous to reach out to strangers and donate. These families need ALL the help we can give them, and I also don't understand WHY it takes so long to withdraw and get the funds to the families. This will be the one and only time I will ever use GoFundMe.com

Overseas Charity 3/5
By Uganda not Posting
GoFundMe worked great while I was in the states. However while I was in Uganda I was not able to post any updates at all. Yes, internet can be a challenge, but Instagram and FB worked so I'm not certain why GoFundMe was a challenge.
I like it but i also don't like that it takes from those who are receiving the money just to get the money. We need every penny in hardship times like these.. #SulfurFire
Faster withdrawal options 3/5
By Yesica Ibarra
Need to find a faster way to receive funds when they are urgent. Other than that love GoFundMe!
Great platform for Crowdfunding 5/5
This platform lays out a simple itinerary to maximize visibility of your campaign.
The worst app 1/5
Hi there. I have used GoFundMe quite a bit online. The site is easy to navigate and easy to donate. It’s a dream for donating.
Your app in the other hand? A nightmare. I simply want to sign in to my account and simply search for a cause to donate to — and then donate.
I have no idea why your app pushes the user to setup a campaign. IM NOT USING IT TO CREATE A CAMPAIGN. I’m trying to donate!! You would think the app would be an easier solution, rather than going to the website each time.
The app layout is horrendous. And I’ve gotten stuck numerous times in being forced to setup a campaign. My options are only to either 1) create a campaign, or 2) sign out??! That makes absolutely no sense. That’s NOT what I want to use it for. This app needs a complete redesign.
Thank you for this awesome way to raise funds.. 5/5
By Big Joe Sr.
I have to say I was skeptical in the beginning and I wasn't sure how to get started... but if you follow the prompts it is simple and very effective. I was able to reach my first goal in less then an hour. In 48 hours I reached my second goal that I never imagined would have been reached. Thank you for designing this app I will be using it in the future..
Easy to use! 5/5
Easy to use and fast set up!

Go fund me 5/5
By SwAG er
I found this app to be very user friendly. Almost everything is covered. Just one thing I think would help would be to let other phones up load their contacts.
Love it 5/5
GoFundMe is extremely easy to use. And they keep you updated every time someone donates.
Terrible app, forcing to create a new campaign every time I open the app 1/5
Very helpful 5/5
I thought I was going to be in debt with a lot of medical bills, then I heard of Gofundme and it helped me a lot in paying my medical bills!
Thank you so much !
Helping Hand 5/5
A great tool to help others in their time of need!
A great way to fundraise. 4/5
Love the tips. The way to share. Wish you had a direct link to tumblr and that the fees were a little less. But overall I am grateful for this app.
Problems I have encountered: The video option to thank and update does not sync for me.
Bad support 1/5
I can't believe that 24 hours after I started my campaign they just decided to cancel my account with no reason.... I don't have access to my account and donations are refunded... I thought this app was good and serious, but it's problematic and with a bad support service....
