The app was very easy to install and to use. I offered a wooden dining set to our local Air Ambulance. I took photos, put them in the gallery on my tablet and filled in the details - easy. I received an acceptance email and then waited. It's good that I was given a contact phone number for the charity in the acceptance email because I never heard from anyone. I ended up contacting the charity and arranging collection. There was nothing that indicated that the charity knew anything about the Gone for Good information. While I love the idea of this app and hope it gets going with better continuity, I am not sure that I couldn't have accomplished the end result by just contacting the charity myself. It would have been good if the charity had said something like "Oh yes, we've got it on our list." As it was I mentioned the Gone for Good app several times and there was silence on the other end of the phone.
Absolutely useless. Not sure why the developers bothered with this.
There is no button to press to take a photo of the items at the first step.
Had 10 bags of good quality books, games and clothes. I had a very poor response from the charities through this app, BHF said no and none of the other choices responded. I drove to my local BHF and showed them the goods, now thinking what I had wasn't something they wanted, however the local store were very thankful and took everything. In order for this app to work well, it needs a better response time and better integration with the charities it lists. It's a great concept but unfortunately for me it didn't yield any results.
I've bagged up freshly washed and ironed clothing, along with handbags and other times that have never been worn/used. I uploaded a photo of five+ bin bags bursting full of stuff and not one of the charities wanted the donations. The app then sends me an email suggesting I can take the donations to the local landfill instead. Right. So, don't donate clean and good quality stock to charity, take it to the dump instead? 🤔 I've seen the donated stock first hand in local charity shops and can't understand why any of them would refuse my donations.
Its a nice app and idea. However no responses from charities despite offering items of very significant value. Given multiple similar reviews indicates something not right. Not recommended.
This update includes some small bug-fixes and improvements.
