I just started using it. It's good so far, but please allow owners to delete messages when not booking with someone. The messages just build up, and I have to sift through to find one I need. Also, having people outside of my address that I need someone to come to is a little deceptive. Other than those issues so far, it's good. I hope those 2 issues can be resolved. ***Even though nothing is booked and it will move to archive I still think the option to delete would be nice to clean things up

Hi Emily, thanks for your review. As long as the service was never fully booked there’s no need to delete any pending requests. The request will naturally move to the Archive section of your inbox a couple of days after the requested service dates have passed. If you have any further questions please call our 24/7 Rover Support at 888-453-7889.

Great app, we have had a fantastic experience. The app was easy to set up, including the option of making pet profiles for your animals. We found an AMAZING dog walker in our neighborhood, who also doubled as a trainer and border! Love the app, now we have reoccurring walks set up with pre-approved payments, and it couldn't be easier!

I haven't started using the app yet but I can't imagine a worse experience. I downloaded the app 30 mins ago and it crashed on me 7-8 times. As I tried to set up a profile for my dog, the description box would freeze up. Each character takes at least 30 seconds to appear after typing. I had to quit and relaunch so many times. I've been writing the same description paragraph, half a sentence at a time, for the last 30 mins!!
