Blessing & Curse 5/5
This is an amazing resource for bringing neighborhoods together. On occasion that sometimes isn’t good. There are a few idiots in the world and you’re bound to get one in your neighborhood, but the good things achieved by strengthening your local community out-way that occasional annoyance. Highly encourage all to use this app.
Great neighborhood app! 5/5
By Stephen in NOLA
Easy to set up and use. Whether you’re buying or selling items locally, need a referral for contractors or just want to comment on the neighborhood it’s an all inclusive, easy to navigate and safe app to use. All members are vetted by 1 of 3 easy confirmation procedures.
Good Neighborhood App 4/5
It's nice to have a social media app that focuses on people in your immediate vicinity. I've had a couple of technical issues with this app, but the Nextdoor team managed to resolve them, so now things are running well.
Careful who is the lead in your neighborhood. 2/5
Criminal element use this app to keep an eye on who’s who in the neighborhood.
iPad version? 4/5
I like this app. But where is the iPad version??
A suggestion 4/5
It would be great to support multiple locations
Update error 1/5
By Traveling Minister
I have an iPhone running version 10.3.3 (current iOS). The update will not run on this version. Wake up programmers! Mine is not the only iPhone in use.
Latest update as of 11/13, still does not work with iOS 10.3.3. Programmers are still asleep.
Problem has been fixed. It works now.
The issue has been fixed and I am now able to use and update the app.
I do love this app!! 4/5
I tell everybody I know about it - great way to meet neighbors! However, I would like it a lot better if posts were time and date stamped and also newest posts at the top of the feed.
Love a dedicated network for neighbors 4/5
Gave it four stars because some of the neighborhoods nearby don't seem to be connected and the private messaging system can be improved.
Great tool for a neighborhood 5/5
Just don’t get caught-up in other peoples drama
Good concept, okay execution 3/5
Nextdoor is a good thing but the app itself is a little glitchy.
The feed seems to favor junk ( like things for sale and adds) instead of real content some times I’ll have to scroll down a fair amount to see things that are really important.
As well the app seems to loose connection a fair amount and not update or work at all
A very good way to communicate with your neighbors. 5/5
I excellent way to communicate with your surrounding neighbors and neighborhoods.
AWESOME local neighborhood app; neighborhood watch app 4/5
By Pensacola DL
Works good so far, using ~3 months.
I use Ring neighborhood which great as well to allow you to notify others and post your Ring videos to your “neighborhood “, max setting is 5 miles from your home.
Ring neighborhood is great, but has no alerts that I’m aware of in the event suspicious people are checking out your neighborhood.
This app, Nextdoor, seems to have these features in order for you to issue a neighborhood alert which goes immediately to people who have alerts enabled on their device..... AWESOME feature if you have kids and it’s used right and not abused.
Still figuring out/looking how to adjust some settings/alerts to my liking.
So far the app seems lacking in a few areas of alert customization or I’ve overlooked something.
Once I use longer, I may change my rating.
Keep up the good work DEVELOPERS!
Don’t let this app die out, I see it as the the new digital neighborhood watch community!
Lake Oswego Nextdoor 5/5
I truly feel blessed that we have this app to help my neighbors and I stay connected and communicate and help each other as a community. Recently we have been on the search for a dog, Lucy, that is a member of the family and a wellness pet for human dad. This community has been brought together regarding this recent communication and we I believe I have found Lucy and returned her home to her family. Working together and communicating whatever the circumstances. You don't feel alone
Great way to connect in rural communities. 5/5
In rural areas, NextDoor is a great way to connect with your neighbors and surrounding communities.
Lots of ads now, don’t like that 3/5
But it’s easy to hide the ads. I was getting stuck when I looked at photos in the app, and the developers reminded me to swipe DOWN, not up like on most other apps. 😁Thank you developers, but surely you can change down to up in the software rather than reprogramming iPhone users natural action to swipe up to close out😝 But I’m happy to have a place to list freebies and sale items and I know exactly who I’m dealing with since everyone registers with their address so I feel safer.
I can’t use the app until I get a postcard in the mail. They can’t locate me by phone. No way I will give them a CC OR debit. No way.
Not sure yet. 2/5
By S C N
It's cool to get good info from your neighbors on but it also seems like there's commercials on here trying to sell you stuff. And they try to word it like your neighbors are recommending them. LOL!!!
More and more ads, but still useful 3/5
It's a handy app for things like finding a lost cat or a good contractor (and which of your neighbors are busybodies). But over time the number of ads in the feed has increased, and the app has a few annoying bugs... For instance if you turn on the iPhone's "Zoomed" setting, if you open a photo in this app, the x to close it can't be tapped, so there's no way to get back to the rest of the app. When I contacted support about this they told me to turn off Zoom. Sorry but nope! Apps should work whether that setting is on or off.
Love it!! 5/5
I gave it 5 stars as it deserves it! Best app out there!! Keeps you informed with your neighborhoods and surrounding areas and help
With many you and others may need. And for selling/ giving items away. Awesome!! All should have this app no matter what kind of neighborhood you live in. Great information passed along!!! Get it now!!! 👍👍👍👍👍
Block Watch commander 5/5
By Block Watch commander
Good venue for the community to interact on issues of safety crime prevention and public events awareness
Missing post 4/5
By Archer Artist
I'm sure it is out there in lala land... But to my dismay, I can't find it. I posted a need for an artist studio in the South Philadelphia area (north of Washington). Has anyone seen it?
There are so many great reasons this app rocks. Personally I have reunited 2 pets with their families with this app and encourage everyone to join even if for that reason alone! But there are so many other great reasons I love this app. Neighbors are always wanting to help one another and this app is definitely a place that happens on a regular basis. I mean you can “Google” something but asking your local neighbors for recommendations means so much more as far as I’m concerned.
Unfriendly and political 1/5
Site is very unfriendly. If you have a dissenting opinion, you are censored by the leads of the neighborhood.
Too many cliques and too political for me.
Needs some work 3/5
1. The app will not auto rotate so has to be viewed in portrait mode, which means removing the power cord and flipping the iPad.
2. They need to add a filter for opting out of the perpetually long streams of:
“PETS - LOST/FOUND/CONGRATULATIONS/CONDOLENCES”
I like it 5/5
I am more connected to my community with next door, and like to help others with recommendations. It is also great when lost pets and items are returned to their owners. People also can alert others to problems and other issues that are happening where they live. I wish I was allowed to be seen in more than just the 12 small areas near my home.
Great App 5/5
Have used a referral from this app and all was well done. Contacts with neighbors have been great. Providers also appreciate the referrals. Would recommend the app to others.
Business over the people Nextdoor, (neighbors) 1/5
This group has quickly gone downhill. Poorly managed by Leads and not worth the join.
Hangs on pictures 3/5
After the update if you are looking at a posted picture (s) there is no way to exit out of the pictures except close the app and reopen it
Fair, but get ready for ads 3/5
It's a platform to connect with real neighbors, and that aspect works pretty well. But it's free, so your activity profile is being monetized and you'll see lots of advertising. Also, they permit hawking "services" in general news feed, instead of in a commercial section. The Interface for hiding unwanted posts is awkward, and there's no way to turn off the "For Sale" items in the news feed. Finally, replies to posts aren't threaded, it's frustrating to follow replies. Reddit does a much better job at that.
First Class 5/5
Great tool to communicate both important & fun information to neighbors. Helps to get to know those who live nearby!
Love but... 3/5
Really love the concept and the app is pretty cool. Would love to see some more FB like features but realize that takes some expertise I certainly don’t have. Overall a winner though and I am very grateful someone took the time to do it. It is a gift and I like it!
Would love the ability to edit my posts rather than delete, re-post.
Edit - developer says this possible however, it is not. I am only offered an option to delete my post when replying to someone’s post. Happy to provide a screenshot.
New Update Problem 5/5
The recent update introduces the return of an old problem. Once tapping a photo to enlarge it, there is no way to exit back to the app. I hope you can fix it as promptly as the last time this happened. ;)
App major bug again 2/5
By Don't get this1
Why don’t you check this??
When we open a picture that’s posted, there is no way to close it without closing and restarting the app.
Needs to support iPad 1/5
This is an iPhone only app. You can download it to iPad, but it is iPhone sized and doesn’t support landscape mode.
Better than nothing! 3/5
I hope it doesn't become too commercialized. A lot of issues with crashing. I wish more of my community knew about Nextdoor.
Review of Nextdoor 5/5
By Narrows Man
This website is a great way to have neighborly chit chat with an extended population of neighbors. It also works well for neighborly concerns and needs. My only frustration is that the administrators think they know better that I what my neighbors and I should be sharing. I find this to be excessively intrusive into the conversations.
Issues fixed 3/5
I’m finding with the new updates that I cannot X out of pictures. I end up restarting the app.
Rad app 5/5
Cool to know whats going on in the neighborhood, great way to advertise local services, great way to post for help like general contracting and odd jobs.
Selling things locally...
Bringing the whole community together. <:) priceless
Gonna chime in that i dont have connectivity issues with it, Im newer too it. Sure, theres drama. Thats everywhere. You can pick n choose what notifications and boards you are interested in. Theirs also a lot of important information about local crime and safety... as a decent neighbor... you should probably check on. In my city-neigborhood the police and fire chiefs also put out important public information. This might seem like facebook for retired, neighborhood watch volunteers... and it is i think. But that doesn't make it un useful. Respect your elders... crazy or not.
Love It! 5/5
I love this app! It is a great communication tool for our community. I have absolutely no connection problems and I always use WiFi! So just maybe it is your internet provider or the speed that some individuals have. Not sure.
5 stars 5/5
At this point I see "Nextdoor" as very helpful. During hurricane Irma, it was the only way I could find out if my FL home was ok. The phone lines were down for my contact person but others that I didn't even know in my community had internet and let me know that my house was fine through this app.
UPDATE: Dec 2017
The Nextdoor app is a great way to keep up with what's going on in your community. I've never had a connectivity issue and use wifi. Seems like that would be an internet problem, not an app problem. Also, it's best to block other communities so you don't have to weed through to find postings from your neighbors. That's what our community asks us to do.
App allows a tree trimmer to send urgent messages for his business. Not anything like a fire or missing child as advertised.
Posting about babysitting, and dog walking isn’t very easy on here anymore. Most people like to complain about a Gardner snake in someone’s driveway, or a closed store. Shannon isn’t very helpful, and neither is Reece. Joshua, thanks for liking my posts. It’s pretty much soccer moms who have no life’s and like to complain about things. Would not recommend.
Useful to see only positive 4/5
Found some good help but also there are companies that should not be recommended but pointing them out will cause your post to be removed.
I have found some posts argumentative with people with different opinions that go on forever but getting through the opinions I have found some really helpful information. The app seems to get better with time.
Can’t log in 1/5
When I try to log in it just says I’ve been logged out :/
Great for Connecting with Neighbors!! 4/5
By Mrs. Havisham
I’ve been mostly happy with Next Door, and think it’s a very good app for communicating with neighbors, staying informed about neighborhood issues and events, sharing news and event information, and buying and selling items locally. There are some abuses every now and then, such as using ND as your personal soapbox to rant and rave about politics or whatever is annoying you, and bullying others who don’t agree with you. The ND “leads” are supposed to monitor these situations and try to curb this activity, but it doesn’t always happen.
Good app 5/5
I’ve used it a good deal. I’ve gotten some recommendations on services and learned about street construction, crime and a few other things. There is plenty posted I don’t care about and some bickering about county/city issues but that is not the app’s fault. I’d recommend it.
I am really happy that I can now have the choice of hiding posts that are not of interest. Nextdoor was the greatest source of info during the fires. Thanks for improving the service. I’d suggest making it more intuitive or user friendly to find out how to post something. I’ve done it several times, but it’s difficult. Thanks.
