Great concept, terrible design 1/5
By Angelina Sartorio
This app is garbage. I don’t care what anyone else says because my husband and my friends have it too and it has the same problems for them. This isn’t just my single personal experience. It is so glitchy and constantly won’t even let me open the app, cancels my orders by signing me out, etc. Once you have an order that has been picked up and the runner messages you, there’s no way to open the chat other than by scrolling through the newsfeed and finding your order, which can be tough because there could be several other orders in front of it. The concept is amazing and the runners in my area are great but the design team really failed on this app. I’m surprised they released it with this many problems. I’ll continue to use it because of the service but I hate how hard it is to use!
Could use improvement 2/5
Update for iPhone X
cool, incredibly challenging to use 1/5
Before reading my review please acknowledge I have done over 50 runs and delivered over 70 meals in the past few weeks of using this app.
to start, everyone’s food requests, delivery runs and previous deliveries are all on one very confusing page. Also, food delivery people and people ordering food use the same app on the same page of that. Confusing. I get the idea of JoyRun is for everyone to order and deliver food but you really shouldn’t be like that. This encourages people who have never worked in delivery to start delivering food without any training. There should be a separate app for people delivering on JoyRun and a separate app for those ordering. Or at least two separate pages with Indya, the main field which all and functions virtually are found on, is any lag he mumbo-jumbo of information.
also, anybody can deliver my food, there is no verification process or approval process. You leave your Facebook which can we have a Facebook then anyone is able to deliver food without you knowing if they’ve ever delivered anything before, received any training, can do anything they want with the food, or is even who they say they are. I think there should be verified delivery drivers for those skeptical about a random stranger with no experience delivering their food. I think you should be able to choose whether you or not you wanted a verified or unverified delivery person.
on top of that there is no refresh the page feature. The only way to refresh is to close the app and reopen it, which is ridiculous. It’s supposed to update automatically but it only does when I have perfect connection. I’d rather be able to refresh the page and if he doesn’t refresh I don’t have connection, rather than not knowing whether or not people have placed an order. Whenever using the app you find yourself scrolling and scrolling and scrolling viewing previous orders delivered, people requesting food, people offering to deliver food, current runs in process, etc. Lot of information on one page that glitches my brand new iPhone X sometimes when I scroll down it. The app can be very lucky and sometimes take minutes to open.
besides all that, I have use JoyRun to make about $400 in the past few weeks averaging me in about $15 an hour not including gas and vehicle wear n tear.
Convenient and crappy. 1/5
Nice to get food delivered to you. Not nice that the app lets drivers change their run times, resulting in 2 hour waits. Also not nice that they ask for your address yet (apparently) never show it to the runner - so he/she asks repeatedly for your address. All around TERRIBLE user experience - no wonder they have to keep offering discounted runs to buyers to inspire people to use the app. 😂
I hate this app more than any other app 1/5
It's impossible to try to order food for someone else if you're not in the geographical location. Horrible horrible idea. I wanted to order a special someone some food on Valentine's Day but I couldn't. I had to bother someone in the geographical location to do it all for me and even then she ran into issues. They don't knock on the door? What?? Such a bizarre app who's rules don't make much sense at all, just frustrate the user
Can't turn off announcements? Seriously? 1/5
They need to be able to turn off announcements. Because notifications are basically necessary to use this app, it would be nice if I could have them only notify me about messages and food arriving.
Why the heck do I have to have a stupid alarm go off in a test so they can tell me about some stupid football special they're having?
Please remove this. Other companies like Uber do not do this and neither should you
This app is horrible and barely ever works.
Can’t turn off notifications 1/5
I can only turn notifications off for a max of one week. The notifications are so annoying. Let me turn them off forever!
Great concept, easy to use 5/5
As a student with not a lot of time on my hands, I am able to get food delivered wherever I am on campus quickly and inexpensively
The best app 5/5
I loooove JoyRun!!! It has made getting food at school so much more convenient and easier
Perfect for college students 5/5
I am so busy every week, so having the ability to make money whenever I want on my own time has been a life saver. I make $25 an hour some nights and it’s the easiest money I’ve ever made. Oh yeah and I can just hop on the app and order chipotle delivered right to my apartment. Clutch.
Flexible and fast money earning! & Food!! 5/5
By Nintendo Mario
I love it because there are multiple options for everyone. You decide how much money you want to earn, and it’s as flexible as it gets.
Plus, you can get free food too with stamp or punch cards.
What a great app! 5/5
By Megs Moods
Such a great idea! I can order food whenever i’m in a pinch and I can give back to the community whenever they are in need! What a great idea!
Buyer & Runner - Good stuff! 5/5
I'm a buyer and runner, and I like using this JoyRun. I like that most of my delivery people are also students. I wish there was a way to track the runners' tba without using the chat.
Best app 5/5
This app is the best app for college students. I love this app so much and such an easy user interface
Amazing app 5/5
This app is the best. Unlike other delivery apps this one allows you to easily make money delivering for other people! I’ve made over $1000 in the last month doing deliveries! Plus it’s a cheap convenient option for food delivery. I highly recommend JoyRun!
Very convenient! 5/5
By From the couch reviews
I really enjoy using this app as a college student! It allows me to get the food that I want without having to go anywhere! Its really easy to use too
Best College Campus App! 5/5
Hungry for food and don't want to leave you dorm/apartment? Have someone run for you to get last minute chipotle, groceries, etc. Super convenient for all students.
Very useful 4/5
Such an easy and cheap way to get food and make money. Very useful for dorm life.
Great App For College Students 5/5
JoyRun is such a great app for all college students. It is the best way to get food delivered on campus/to my house. Also a great way to make money for any student. Highly recommend JoyRun to any college student!!
Only one way to sign in?? 1/5
This app seems great based on the reviews especially for a freshman in college such as my self. The problem is that I can't even use it because the only way to sign in is through Facebook. Not everyone has a Facebook so there should be a way to register with an email address. Not a smart move for an upstart business you would think they would get as many people as possible to try out their app but anyone who doesn't have a Facebook can't even use this aspp
Not working. 1/5
I can’t open the app. I’ve deleted and reinstalled multiple times. iPhone 8. I’ve used before and I love the app but it’s frustrating that it’s not working now.
By Hello Gaby
Awesome app concept i love the idea and makes stuff a lot cheaper however The app makes me log into Facebook EVERYtime i click out of It and come back. It makes It extremely hard to use sometimes
Terrible for drivers 1/5
Constantly logs you out of the app, freezes, glitches, looses connection, and not very well refined with clunky a user interface. Good for ordering food, terrible if you are trying to be a runner
Best delivery app for college students! They don't rip you off and your fellow classmates get the money so it's a win win! I don't use any app but JoyRun for deliveries now!
Really joyful 5/5
Efficient and easy
Best thing that has ever happened 5/5
I love JoyRun! Its so convenient for me as a college student. And it rarely lets me down. So worth it!
I can’t put it down 5/5
This app is a beautiful app. Want Taco Bell? Order and it will be there normally within the hour. McDonalds? Done. Jack in the Box? Be there in 30. Absolutely a life saver for when the diner closes! Also it’s amazing what time these runners are up at. 3am and craving something? There is always a runner ready! Nothing bad to say other then the notifications come in late sometimes. I’ll blame that on my phone though! Love the app, keep doing what you’re doing!
Greatest App Ever! 5/5
For lazy people like me... this is one of the greatest apps ever. I mean ever. Love it so much.
BETTER THAN UBEREATS 5/5
This app will literally save your life if your live in an area where postmates or ubereats arent available. The delivery prices are low compared to other food delivery services and the food is delivered while its hot! 10/10, a necessity for hungry college kids
Price adds up 3/5
It’s really convenient but the price adds up quickly with runners’ fees. The orders aren’t right 100% of the time so do be weary of that. Food may be cold when it gets to you as these runners have multiple requests going on at once.
No support 1/5
No support to help with issues. And there are A LOT of issues
this app is a really good idea and I use it all the time. the only problem is that sometimes the food takes a little bit too long to arrive. but usually pretty good.
Absolutely horrible! 1/5
Terrible app support! Had my runner deliver my food to the wrong house and they ate it! Had to wait hours for admin to answer me. Two hours after my order I’m still waiting for a reply.
You’re honestly better off just picking the food up yourself than dealing with all of this.
I don’t recommend this app to anyone unless you’re using the $5 off to get a Little Caesar’s delivered for less than it is in the store.
Great app. 5/5
Most deliveries are on time. Love the new stamp system
Very convenient, could use improvement 4/5
I do love this app; it is very convenient for a freshman in college who isn't allowed to have a car on campus.
I do think the app should be more improved in a way where it shows you an ETA to your door, not just an ETA to the restaurant itself. It’s bit annoying having to guess when they will arrive or having to ask them to text you when they’ll get here every single time.
I do also think that the runners should have a sticker on their car of some sort showing that they are a runner, it’s annoying having to guess what car they are in a parking lot. Or maybe in the app having it show what kind of car they will be driving, that way you know what to look for; kind of like what Uber does.
I still plan on using this app a lot (maybe too much), I just think it could use a few improvements!
By Jaqueline Aguilar
I really love Joyrun it has helped me get food without having to go out and I’m glad I get to help certain people with at least a little bit of cash with the fee that is being charged. It’s a great app beneficial to both the people ordering and those delivering.
Joy run review 4/5
Joyrun is great for college kids like me struggling to find time to eat and study! I love its convenience
It’s fast and love how you’re able to communicate with whoever is picking up your order right away
Joy Run Review 3/5
By Cori Hutchins
I enjoy using the app. The only problem I have with it, is the amount of money they take for the delivery charges.
This App is great! 5/5
I found out about this app a few weeks ago and it has been a life saver. I was able to make some money that I really needed and I can get deliveries to any restaurant around my area for a convenient price!
I love the way Joyrun works. They are helpful
I love it! 5/5
I use JoyRun when I’m studying for my exams. They bring me food to wherever I am and it is great!! I never have to drive somewhere and go through traffic and miss time in the books. It is the best thing that I have encountered in a while. 😁
Great App! 5/5
I’ve been using this app for about 4 months now and I absolutely love it! It’s waay cheaper than all the other food delivery services, I like the fact that it’s a student ran device, and I love the fact that I’m able to make money through the app as well. I’ve been able to make a significant amount of money since I’ve been using the app & the best part is I get to choose my own schedule. It’s a great fit for college students in every aspect & I 100% recommend it!!
Great App 5/5
Awesome delivery app to use on campus! Love that I can order from any restaurant in town
Easy, Fun, Fast 5/5
JoyRun is a fun and easy way to not only get exactly what you need delivered, but interact with your friends on campus. I love how easy it is to order anything at all times, and seeing which of my friends are out and about. I also love how easy it is to make fast cash💸 Driving in my own schedule has become my favorite part time job 👍🏻 I can't wait to see JoyRun become the next big thing🙌🏻
Great delivery app! 5/5
JoyRun is a great way to get the food you want whenever you want. People will deliver you food at 2am on any day of the week. The drivers are very nice and usually the food comes pretty quick. The only thing is the menus need some updating. Other than that the app is perfect for your typical college student!
The app allows for you to work on your own schedule, which is really helpful for busy schedules students might have throughout the year. Also it’s really easy to order food at virtually any time of day!
So convenient 5/5
This app saves lives on nights I am too busy to cook or grab food! So easy to use, and easy to make extra money$$
I love it! 5/5
JoyRun is an awesome app in every way. The concept is great to start, but the way that the app is laid out and designed makes it even better. I love how smoothly everything runs on the ordering end and on the runner’s end! JoyRun will always get 5 out of 5 stars from me!
