It's a nice idea but the transaction costs are too high to make it work. This needs a very efficient infrastructure for couriering to make it worthwhile to collect something worth pennies. Looking at the app I see a 2 mile trip for half a tub of butter. Who would do that except for the truly desperate? Even if you were say a poor single parent you might have to walk 10 miles to collect enough food for a dinner. Taking the bus would eradicate your profit, not to mention the time lost.
I love the concept and the app. I got some items from here not far from me. I am now collecting from a shop but I found that not many people responded to get the items. Fortunately I was able to give all between the people who responded but I am wondering if it will be more difficult as I will collect the items every week... I am sharing the app in my social media groups to help it grow but not sure if it will work
Great idea. Yet to try. Why is there a Go fund me listing in non foods, and why does the app keep refreshing itself? When postcode is input it should show what's nearby, it might not be working properly. Also category tabs, if not pressed properly to select, will show foods too. Fix required.
Love the app, usability's not great though. I have a galaxy 7 Edge, the text is tiny and lots of the tiny stuff is also light grey on a white background. There aren't many apps that I struggle to read out don't offer high contrast and/or text size adjustment. My wish is for OLED friendly and super legible black background with light grey text. The ability to adjust the font size would be a real help too. Otherwise, thanks- have had a few great scores of fresh bread and coffee beans already. Onwards and upwards Olioers, just please keep developing and keeping those of us with high resolution screens and less than 20/20 eyesight in mind.
This is the second time I've tried Olio in 12 months, no improvement: Interesting concept let down by a half-baked app and lack of decent offerings. I live in central London and the nearest items to me at just short of 2 miles away - someone offering the half used contents of her kitchen cupboard one by one. If there are so few users in London I cannot imagine this working anywhere else in Europe. On top of that, the app is slow and badly designed - back button won't exit the app, animations are jarring, there is little design consistency and doesn't follow material design (any anything else).
Very good. Was wasteless good trading if unwanted goods not profitable to sell but non the less brilliant condition and useful. Everyone should have it! Good if you want to try a new food or hair dye or what ever us on offer without cost or much waste
