Good concept and the app is well implemented for posting, discovery, and messaging. I'm glad that this app made it easy for me to give away things that I don't need anymore, but which other people would benefit from. The pop-ups to support the app are really really annoying though. I get that they need money to support the project, but it feels really frustrating to be harassed and interrupted by the ads several times a day while I'm giving away loads of stuff for free! It honestly made me want to stop using the app and just throw my stuff in the bin. I think if they just made it so that the ads to support only showed at most once every few days, this would be a big improvement. Also their bot is very annoying and there's no way to disable it as far as I can tell. This is detrimental since I want to treat messages from people as high priority and get a sound notification, but I don't want to be spammed by their bot, and there's no way for me to differentiate the two. They should use a separate notification channel for bot messages so I can make them lower priority notifications.

The app has some software issues however the purpose and vision of less food waste and more sharing make it a great app. I would give the idea five stars but the app itself gets 2 stars. The messaging system frequently doesn't send messages. I have now experience this multiple times over several months, leading to me waiting half an hour for the message to be read and twice having a pickup cancelled.

Absolutely LOVE this app! It's a great way to get rid of your unwanted food & non-food items by giving the stuff to others in need! When I first joined I posted quite a few food items & somebody requested them, then picked them up quickly! Also have experienced getting things from others. ALL of my experiences have been with great people. Its a fantastic app!
