The app's performance may vary with the NFC features of your phone, but for me it seems to know when I'm standing in front of a bin, and it lets me unlock the bin. The one thing it doesn't do at the moment is recognize when it has succeeded in unlocking the bin. There's no visual or audio feedback from the bin itself (not even a click), so you have to just try the door and if it doesn't work press "unlock" on the app again.

It works, but... I had to align the GPS to where the app thinks the bin is before pressing the "unlock bin" button. This location was around 100 feet away down the block. Once I was there, I could unlock the bin. I then had to run to the bin quickly before the bin locked again. As other users have pointed out, relaxing the tight GPS range a little bit could go a long way in solving this particular problem.

The app almost never opens the bins, either through Bluetooth or via the Unlock button. The app also doesn't properly recognize location or have the correct grocery if the bins, so the Unlock button itself doesn't always allow you to use the unlock button, even if you're right next to the bin. Total fail in implementation. I have to ask my friends that have an iPhone to unlock, clearly where all the time and testing was spent, since that works.
