I think it's a great app, really useful and especially easy to use on the mobile version. Although, it is frustrating when you make an advanced search and then rooms come up that don't fit the search. Whether this is because landlords somstimes don't make sure to include all the relevant info or because the search is buggy, I don't know. I also don't like the Early Bird system, although I don't begrudge the app too much for this, if it's how it makes its money.

Generally the app is great and massively invaluable. Really great for searches with plenty of options. In some ways I'd be homeless without it! The messaging facility is a little limited but generally does what it needs to. My only other criticism is that I couldn't filter max age range the desired tenant e.g. Ads posted where they want a flatmate who is between 25-35, and I'm (older).

App now has search by keyword which makes my life easier so I added 1 more star. 1 star is missing because I get emails about houses that dont match my ads at all even though that's why they're being sent. I think the alerts just look at the location you wanted. Also I'd like to be able search specificly for suitable for female houses, not click in and see they meant current household is females but new housemate can be females/males.
