Learning Curve 3/5
I've used this a bit, and overall works well. A few actions are not intuitive. If you have a problem, slow down & you'll get it. And add your comments in a review.
Good information...mostly 5/5
By Beaded Lady
I have enjoyed being a part of Nextdoor. Just using it to find lost pets would make it worthwhile to me. But there are so many uses. People are happy to give things away to their neighbors, they offer to help neighbors when their lawnmower is broken and other situations like that. Almost everyone is very nice and respectful while still giving honest opinions. I've only had one person act really ugly to me via private message and I would like to be able to block that one person. I don't see a mechanism for that but would love to see it in the future.

I enjoy this app it's a little overwhelming
I check it several times a day
I would recommend it
As with anything use with caution
Any one can join to my knowledge there is no screening process
Be very careful
Great Site 5/5
A wealth of information!!!
Great for reviews and recommendations 5/5
I like this app because when you need a recommendation for a business/service in your zip code area, people are very helpful and honest in their feedback from their experiences with the vendor/service you are seeking. I like to think the NextDoor app as a digital version of "visiting a neighbor on your block" and asking them, "hey, I need a good repairman for 'X item'. Whom did you use and would you recommend them?". The app is also a great avenue for classifieds too. The buyer can personally message you for more details if needed.
All in all, great app; I recommend it.
Great community resource 5/5
Works really well!
There's a problem with your connection 2/5
Please try again later
This would be a great app if it worked properly.
The error about a problem with the connection happens a lot
Typically I can only see 0 to 5 posts in the main feed. Sometimes more if I'm lucky
Frequently when viewing photos, I get the error failed to fetch full size photo
When searching, I can find a post but I cannot open it – it only shows some text, not photos, and no replies - cannot click on it to open the post
I think something is broken with notifications to Leads about reported posts because very few leads in our area vote on reported content
App notifications sometimes come 24 hours after viewing the item being notified about
I LOVE this app 5/5
By I love TOOL
I love love love this app.
There are only 2 things I would like to see changed...
1) I don't think there's any way to delete a post once posted (although it can be edited).
2) It would be nice if the screen rotated horizontally & not just vertically on my iPad.
I still give it 5 stars!
Next Door 5/5
This app is a great way to find people in the neighborhood who want to help each find quality service technicians. It is also a way to meet neighbors.
Very useful 4/5
If utilized properly. Nice layout too
Wish I had more control 4/5
To add additional neighborhoods, or to stop certain notifications. Overall a good idea. Very old posts are listed without complete dates so you think a crime or free items are current when they are not.
Great app to keep informed of local happenings 4/5
Wont let me join 1/5
I would have loved to join the app but i tried every single method of joining and it just kept saying that my code did not match their records or that they could not verify when i do actually live in the neighborhood that i was trying to verify i tried all three methods (card, phone, and social) and it would not allow me to join they need to fix this because well i appreciate they are verifying that u live in the area they are not doing it accurately enough to where the people who live in the area can join apparently
Great addition to our neighborhood! 5/5
Have nothing but positive to say!
We've found dogs, missing parrots, crooks, and many other things with this addition to our neighborhood!
Private messages 1/5
Private messages only display a handful of characters in the app. Super frustrating as it appears like they are being truncated.
Great community tool 5/5
Great app to effectively communicate with your local community on anything from crime prevention, classifieds, heads up on door to door solicitors, community social gatherings, garage sales, etc.
Love it 5/5
Feel safe posting here and using to keep up with the area
Keeps experiencing problems 2/5
Update May 2017 for a month or two the app says it's experiencing connection issues or down for maintenance.
Jan 2017 I like the app especially now that the City and County in my area have both joined and I can get important info w/out getting on Facebook. I like the alerts that could alert you of danger. I haven't met any neighbors that I didn't already know. Rename app NEIGHBORS. It's a more friendly name.
Connection to Server Timing Out 5/5
Dear app devs, love the app but could you please look into the error message "oops! It looks like your connection to our server timed out, please try again later" ...I'm on wifi when it's doing this. Thank you for you time!
Great when it works... 2/5
By Sgt Amazing
Great app when it works, unfortunately right before and after the update, it still says it has connection issues. I get this frequently, yet I have zero problems with connection on my phone. I am able to type this...
Constant crash 1/5
New update is terrible.
No connection 1/5
Since this last update you can't connect. It just keeps saying try again.
Current version won't connect 1/5
Says my connection is lost on wifi and LTE
It's okay 3/5
I want to love this app, and so far it's decent. My main complaint is being notified when I thank a most every time someone replies to that post. It's so obnoxious I end up going in and unthanking posts or just not thanking them in the first place.
There's an option in notifications to get notifications when someone thanks YOUR posts, but no where does it state that you are going to be notified for everyone else's posts as well...overall very frustrating.
Getting Better 3/5
It's a very useful app and has helped introduce us to several neighbors wouldn't have met otherwise. Still a bit lacking in features but improving. My biggest gripe is using the app on my iPad. Nextdoor is way behind the curve in coming out with an iPad version. I hate using the clunky iPhone version on my iPad. Please release that pretty soon!
Update May 23rd!!! Come on folks, iPad landscape compatibility!!!! Is no one using this any more??
Great communication tool 5/5
This app has brought neighbors together - for garage sales, recommendations, crime fighting and support. Nice app!
Great app 5/5
We use it all the time in our neighborhood.
Great little app 3/5
By Bama Mama
Update 2: I'm back to baking able to view my account. I love that there is a non-FB way to communicate with neighborhoods. We are having a rash of home burglaries, and it's great to be able to get the word out on things the news doesn't cover.
Update: This last update has made it so I am 'unauthorized' to look at my own profile/neighborhood! I've lost access entirely.
Liking nextdoor so far. Only complaint is the limit on minimum users per neighborhood. We live in a fairly rural area with fewer residents. We have learned of break ins, coyotes, and lost pets even though we don't have the minimum.
I like almost everything about Nextdoor 4/5
I like almost everything about next door except that the administrator can add 'other nearby neighborhoods'. Yes I can block my posts but others do not and so people can sometimes get too much information on homes and people that are not really their "Neighbors". We have trespassing problems already and putting additional information out there just causes some of us to be concerned.
Great app!! 5/5
This is a great way to keep up with all that is going on in our area not only just in the neighborhood.
Generally works but key feature appears broken 2/5
Cannot send private messages.
Great app and service for neighbors 5/5
The service this provides is invaluable. Love it
Great App to be In The Know of Your Inner Circle Neighborhoods 5/5
I learn about nearby crimes, lost pets, garage sales, household items for sale within close range, cars, services other neighbors use and recommend, alerts when someone is creeping the neighborhood, free items set out on a curbside. I can post my misc. items for sale and have had much success getting offers. I can learn about the new shops and restaurants opening up nearby that are doing well. This app is a godsend. I'm so glad it's been created. Yes, some people misuse it, but, overall it's pretty user friendly and allows you to mute an unwanted conversation or person.
Good app 4/5
By Her Hi-nes
This app has allowed us to "meet" and talk with our neighbors in our new community. I recommend it to everyone we know.
It would be great if we could respond directly to a question or response. Right now when I try to answer someone's post it falls far down the page so it's hard to tell who I'm responding to.
Also, there is a "View or Reply" button on my email posts, but it only allows me to view, a direct reply is not an option.
I like it! 5/5
By Sweetwater neighbor
I've really enjoyed having this convenient communication venue. It's kept me informed of neighborhood news that affects me, helped me make a necessary purchase, and helped me solicit much needed help around the house. I'm glad it's here!
Outstanding Resource 5/5
Great way to stay on top of what is going on, find referrals, meet neighbors.
Love it!!! 5/5
I track my neighborhood as well as those directly around us. Keeps me up on petty crime problems. Odd goings on to watch for and some wonderful giving folks! Plenty of trading of services (paint for drywall, dirt for mulch, etc).
Great knowledge base 5/5
I enjoy all the information
A welcome addition to our neighborhood 5/5

Better fences do not make better neighborhoods, this app does
Great idea 5/5
Great idea...love it!
I love this app 5/5
By Lady in az
This is been a great app to be able to reach my neighbors and develop new friendships!
Love it 5/5
By Puchika loko
Yes, I do love NextDoor 5/5
I have thoroughly enjoyed some of the comments and community conversations I have for followed. There have been reports of beak ins, lost pets and many other issues in our neighborhoods. I suspect, in time, it will be a way for me to make friends.
Has done wounders for my business 5/5
Has done wounders for my business
Good app 5/5
I belong to 2 different neighborhoods. Would be nice to switch between instead of having to logout and back in for each.
Please open in app 4/5
One request for an overall great app. Its frustrating that when you are looking at a post via email, at the end of the message there is a button to view or reply. Pressing the button should open up Nextdoor in its app, however it takes you to the Nextdoor web browser page with an 'Open App' button at the bottom of the page. Pressing that opens up another message 'Open in "App Store"? Pressing Open takes you to the app inside the app store, where you need to press 'OPEN' which will finally take you into the app to the post you originally wanted to view. Four screen button presses before getting to the message within the app. I haven't yet seen this behavior in any other app, so it can't be a limitation. Please fix.
By Clo go
Good way to keep up with what is going on in our neighborhoods and the app is quite easy to use.
Great idea! 5/5
It's good to be able to connect with my neighbors and stay aware. Really good app.
Love this app 5/5
I am in a new neighborhood and this app has been incredibly helpful. I found a Latin tutor, electrician, movie theater chairs & have been informed of neighborhood activity. Love it!
Pretty cool 4/5
It's nice to know what's going on around the neighborhood this app does a good job.
