Updates messed with a good thing. It was great until the most recent update. I have to restart my PHONE, the entire phone if I accidentally respond to the message from the notification. I have to dismiss the notification, enter the app, go to the booking page, open the request THEN hit message _________. It's a pain in the a**. I hate the update. It made things so much harder. It's slower, it tracks terrible and now there are extra steps. Take it back to how it used to be!!!!

Good customer base, terrible app. Rover takes a whopping 20% from sitters. For a new sitter, it is necessary to undercharge in order to be competitive. It's a fine side hustle, but often the app is buggy. I frequently have to restart my phone in order to get Rover cards to open, and the cards are a battery drain. Just recently I have had several important messages I sent my client not go through to them, and I'm very frustrated about it. I'm also unable to edit request dates properly.

The app does not work as smoothly as it did before the update on May 16. Since then my messages to my clients don't go through . It takes me multiple times typing the same reply to a client before the message is sent. I have logged off, deleted and reinstalled the app and nothing has worked. Makes it difficult to talk to the pet owners and potential clients in a timely manner
