Good way to keep up with Neighbors 5/5
I find this app very convenient and easy to use.
It’s ok 4/5
Not a bad app , have had no problems with it ! Nice to be able to keep in touch with all my neighbors !
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.
By Massage Student 123
I find that I use this more than I expected. It is helpful and I've had no problems with the app.
Deal-breaker update 1/5
This update removes the ability to mute or hide a classified ad or event post. The little grey down arrow (carat) to the right of the poster’s name & neighborhood is gone. This is a deal-breaker for me. If it’s not reinstated very soon, I will delete the app, and probably my Nextdoor account.
Love being connected 5/5
I love being connected to not only my immediate neighborhood, but also those surrounding me!
Great idea!! 5/5
So far so good! Love it! Connecting with neighbors. I have borrowed items and sold items. A nice resource.
Really helpful App! 4/5
I use this app every day to keep up with what's happening in my neighborhood from activities, garage sales, power outages, freebies from neighbors & a host of other things.
I believe you once were able to edit your own replies to someone else's post but now you can only delete them. Would love to see that edit function return!
STOP with the Free & For Sale entries that CANNOT BE HIDDEN! This is SO ANNOYING! Let me hide what - I - want to hide!!!!!!

Excellent for keeping in touch with neighbor, finding good help, advertising yard sales and free items and helping each other find lost animals.
Great app 4/5
By Yoshi mom
Would like ability to delete inbox too.
App is an un-managed den of bullying, racism, and classism 1/5
Such a bummer. Great tool, not worth the extra hate, bigotry & negativity it allows from its users. Bro! Do you even moderate?
Good app 4/5
App has worked very good, but I wish there was a way that people could/ would post lost dogs and cats on other than the main page.
Love this app! 5/5
I totally love this app! It’s great for keeping up to date about what’s going on in the neighborhood, finding lost pets, and even selling stuff! Or just knowing what events are going on around you.
Cannot install v3.36 1/5
Love the app but:
Oct 18 v3.36: same error message as below. I still cannot install it
Oct 16 v3.35: same error message as below. I still cannot install it
Oct 9 v3.34: Error message says I must have iOS 10.3.3 or install the compatibility version. But I Already do have iOS 10.3.3. !!!
Perfect in all respects!!! 5/5
By BIG RED in your face!
Power to the people as our Constitution mandates! Transparency isn’t our 1st Amendment right by design...not coincidence!
Need more features 3/5
Need to be able to edit your posts and ability to add more photos in some sections. Add multiple photos at one time. I'm new and still learning the app. Like a better images of the neighborhood mapping. Thanks!
They can say all they want that your privacy is safe with them- but I began getting strange phishing emails and solicitation when I signed up with them. It stopped when I deleted the app. Maybe coincidence, but not worth it.
Great App for sharing Information! 5/5
We were experiencing a lot of burglaries in our area and this app came in handy to keep everyone in our area up to date on what all was going on!! We were able to share stories and make sure everyone knew to check and see if they had been victims and also which detective to contact to try and get their items back. I am very pleased with the app and have suggested it to many people! I guess if people aren’t out meeting their neighbors with our busy lives, at least we are staying connected technologically! 😉
I use it often 5/5
Good way to keep informed with my neighbors
Valuable in Sonoma fires 5/5
We're emerging from the Sonoma County fires intact. But during the mandatory evacuation, posts and communication with those who weren't evacuated gave us valuable, informative and real time information that wasn't available anywhere else.
Cannot sign in 1/5
App is broken for me. I cannot login. When I try, it tells me I’ve been logged out. But I was never logged in the first place, hence trying to login.
Can't update anymore 4/5
I've used this app about a year. But starting with version 3.33 I can no longer install updates. It complains that I need IOS 10.3.3 installed, but that OS IS installed on my phone. So the error message is wrong. I have an iPhone 5. I have dozens of other apps and none have this issue.
Besides this the app was working well.
Great App very useful! 5/5
I love this app I find out so many things from it and it’s great to hear the feedback of local businesses and things for sale and fun happenings around the area
Pet Directory Now Missing! 2/5
I like the Nextdoor concept, & the app is very user-friendly. However, one of the most important features to me, the Pet Directory, is now missing. I already contacted customer support & the response was that it is now no longer available on the iPhone app but viewable in the browser version. What is the point of using the app if I will just have to open Nextdoor & sign in to it via browser every time I want to check the Pet Directory for a possible match after spotting (myself or pic posted by someone else) a loose/lost dog or cat? Unfortunately, in our area this is fairly often. I don't know why this feature was removed & now there's just a blank screen when you touch the app's "Pet Directory" but please consider bringing back this feature. Had to subtract 3 stars because I'm considering finding an alternative as I'd rather not leave the Nextdoor website open in my browser indefinitely.
Good concept but faulty execution 3/5
I find this app pretty non-user-friendly. There is no way to hide or delete posts of free or for sale items, so they just clog up my feed. Also, when I do delete or hide something, it brings me back to the top each time, so hiding more than one post is slow, annoying process.
I do, however, appreciate it as a means if communicating with neighbors and sharing resources, so although it’s kind if a pain in the neck, I will continue using it.
No video capabilities 1/5
No way to put short video up
I love this app! But maybe there should be an option to edit comments you post. I have seen arguments break out over bad wording, and apologies given because comments were misread. An edit button for your own comments would ease this issue and solve unnecessary drama
I like this app 5/5
It’s like a local Craigslist, only better.
Great app 4/5
Love the community and communication with my neighbors. Great for locating lost pets
Love it 5/5
I have purchased items. I gotten advice for various things I needed done to my house. It also keeps posted on what's going on in my neighborhood, which is my favorite thing about it. I feel like we're all looking out for each other.
It's good. I'm writing a review hoping it will stop asking me to write reviews
Great and quick method of communication for valuable reasons
Great App 5/5
Very good way to keep informed about local issues.
I USED TO LOVE IT & Think it was a: Great Ap! I Love It!!! 2/5
BELOW IS MY ORIGINAL REVIEW, BEFORE I FOUND OUT THAT NEXTDOOR DOES NOT ALLOW A CHILD TO PROMOTE THEIR SERVICES WITHOUT HAVING TO GET A BUSINESS PAGE AND PAYING!!! THAT MEANS A 10 YEAR OLD CAN’T POST THE S/HE WANTS TO MOW YOUR LAWN AND A 16 YEAR OLD CAN’T OFFER HER BABYSITTING SERVICES!!!
I WAS APPALLED THAT CHILDREN’S POSTS WERE BEING DELETED WHEN THEY WERE OFFERING TO WORK FOR US!
BUT THAT WASN’T THE LAST STRAW! IT WAS WHEN ATTEMPTS TO HELP A WIDOWED, TWO TIME CANCER SURVIVOR, SINGLE FATHER OF THREE CHILDREN WHOSE ELECTRICITY WAS SHUT OFF AND WAS BEING EVICTED... WHEN NEXTDOOR SHUT DOWN OUR EFFORTS TO HELP THIS FAMILY...THAT WAS TGE LAST STRAW. THAT VIOLATES CORE VALUES OF HUMAN DECENCY IN MY BOOK.
NEXTDOOR HAS A LIST OF THINGS ALLOWED THAT INCLUDES RAISING FUNDS FOR “EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FOR NEIGHBORS” THEY INFORMED US THAT MEANT FOR A “NEIGHBORHOOD.”
MY QUESTION TO NEXTDOOR IS... WHY DIDN’T YOU PUT “EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FOR A NEIGHBORHOOD” TO BEGIN WITH?
THERE ARE SO MANY NEIGHBORS WHO WABT TO HELP THIS FAMILY, INCLUDING VIA DONATING ITEMS FOR A YARD SALE... BUT NEXTDOOR SHUT IT DOWN, TYING OUR HANDS.
THEY USE VOLUNTEERS TO MONITOR POSTS, SOME PEOPLE GET POWER HUNGRY AND EXCESSIVE IN DELETING POSTS THAT DON’T REALLY VIOLATE NEXTDOOR GUIDELINES BUT THESE PEOPLE SEEM TO BE ALLOWED... THERE DOESN’T SEEM TO BE ANY CONSIDERATION FOR THE HUMAN PERSPECTIVE... FOR HOW VIOLATED PEOPLE FEEL WHEN THERE POSTS OR COMMENTS ARE DELETED WITH NO EXPLANATION, WHEB NEIGHBOR CAN’T HELP NEIGHBOR.
NEXTDOOR HAS POSITIONED ITSELF TO BE A COLD CORPORATE ENTITY WITH LITTLE HUMANITY! THERE IS NO AUTOMATED RESPONSE THE VOLUNTEERS (LEADS) CAN SEND WITH EXPLANATION & INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REMEDY VIOLATIONS WHEN A POST OR COMMENT IS DELETED. HOW HARD WOULD IT BE TO GIVE LEADS A DROP DOWN MENU OF PRIVATE MESSAGE OPTIONS TO SEND AND GIVE THE POSTER A CHANCE AND TIME TO REMEDY... BEFORE DELETING POSTS?
AND, UNTIL THEY CHANGE THOSE TWO GUIDELINES AND LET:
CHILDREN UNDER 18 POST THEIR SERVICES
LET NEIGHBOR HELP NEIGHBOR WITH “ EMERGENCY ASSISTANCE FOR NEIGHBORS” BY RAISING FUNDS AND REQUESTING REFERRALS TO ASSISTANCE SERVICES, Etc...
UNTIL NEXTDOOR ALLOWS THESE TWO THINGS... MANY OF US ARE LEAVING NEXTDOOR AND TURNING TO FACEBOOK...
THE FACEBOOK CAMPAIGN FOR THIS FAMILY RESULTED IN A JOB PROSPECT FOR THIS SINGLE DAD!!!
IT IS SO UNFORTUNATE THAT NEXTDOOR HAS TAKEN THE POSITION THEY HAVE... BECAUSE OTHER THAN THESE TWO ISSUES IT IS A GREAT SERVICE FOR COMMUNITIES. HOPEFULLY AN ORGANIZATION WITH A SOUL WILL STEP UP AND BUILD A COMPETING PLATFORM THAT ALLOWS NEIGHBORS TO REALLY BE NEIGHBORLY... NEXTDOOR’S CURRENT POLICIES ON THESE TWO ISSUES ARE FAR REMOVED FROM GOOD CHRISTIAN VALUES AND BASIC HUMAN DECENCY.
NEXTDOOR... IF AND WHEN YOU GET A HUMANE HEART AND CHANGE THESE TWO POLICIES... PLEASE LET US KNOW... WE WILL BE BACK THEN.
People in my neighborhood have reunited lost pets with their people, found keys were returned, items sold or given away, service professionals found, kids have found odd jobs, neighborhood alerts, issues addressed & resolved (example: squirrels chewing vehicle wiring and solution "Repels All"), and neighborhood events are shared!!! The city has shared events here as well, I found out about things going on I never knew about! I Highly Recommend This Ap!!!!
Excellent App 5/5
I have used this app a number of times since downloading it last week. It is a great way of remaining in contact with people in the neighborhood and sharing advice, warnings, recommendations, local advertising by actual people in your area. I have absolutely no complaints. So glad I came across this app and have been able to connect with my neighborhood.
Great app 5/5
By ES Boo
Great way to stay informed. Sell items. Track neighborhood activities and so much more.
No iPad App? 1/5
I just signed up with h Neighborhood and love the concept, however I prefer using my iPad to access social media and this app. This app will work on an iPad but it has no landscape support and in clunky. 🤔
Come on Neighborhood, catch up with modern times and make this app iPad Friendly. 😃👍
I look forward to seeing future updates.
Really enjoying this app. 4/5
Good concept and execution 4/5
Like the fact you can focus in on local issues in your neighborhood.
I do not like the classifieds that are taking up more and more space.
Garage sales, great, but business advertising not good.
This is turning me off to App.
If I want a professional ad, I can look online for businesses.
But I object to business owners pushing their services.
The FaceBook for neighborhoods 5/5
Like any social media tool it is about community. In my small town of 20k (Marina, CA) there is an active population of NextDoor users. Neighbors will post notices of garage sales, upcoming community events, lost pets, or concerns about home robberies. Basically things you want to know that happen near and dear to your home.
Ho hum 3/5
The app is ok for a medium grade platform. Don’t be surprised if you have frustrations trying to find something. That is the app du jour for this one. Hang in there. Your just might find what you’re looking for.
Terrific app 4/5
Keeps me informed on what's going on in my hood.
Cannot separate Classified ads from News Feed 3/5
There is no way to separate out the ad infinitum garage sale items from the news feed.
Last update causes problems 1/5
I have an iPad 4th generation that can't be updated to IOS 11 because it is a 32 bit device. It runs fine so I haven't needed to upgrade to a 64 bit iPad. Last week the Nextdoor app started giving an error when updating that it required IOS 10.3.2 or later. Even though I was running 10.3.2, it kept giving the error. I updated to IOS 10.3.3 and the error now says that it will only run on 10.3.3 or later. I click on the "Downgrade to the latest compatible version" button, and it's fine until it checks for updates again, and again it shows an update available but won't upgrade. I now have four apps that are doing this. I presume that something changed so that the latest version of Nextdoor requires 64 bit devices, but this is VERY frustrating.
Please either get a version that will work on both 32 and 64 bit devices or figure out a way to not show the update available on 32 bit devices.
Also, it is bad that the application doesn't support landscape mode. I have a keyboard case on the iPad that is clumsy to work with in portrait mode.
Heard about this through an acquaintance. Decided to download it, but when I pit e-mail to sign up it says my e-mail has been blocked and I will receive a message from them looking into it. Never did and now this app is worthless to me because it won’t even allow me to use it.
Brings us all together 5/5
I love this app. It lets us all communicate on a local level about free things, recent crimes, people in need of assistance, anything. The pet directory is wonderful as well, we get to know who’s loose dogs or cats are whose. On Halloween we mark the houses giving away candy!
If you like something and someone comments then it lets you know all about even months later. Bad.
If you make a comment to help the app lets you know about every comment, even after deleting your comment.
I like some alert just not alert on everything.
Great app 5/5
By Disgruntled as heck about this
It’s a good app. overall, but I’m concerned about the “recommendation” functionality. I’m not sure how business details are initially imputed, but they can be incorrect and the reporting to correct them doesn’t actually function.
