This app used to be something worth using because it was free. It never functioned right but was free. Now it still doesn't function but has to be paid for. 1 example- the description window. Really? No return key to add spacing? Listing looks like a dang love letter from prison and not a professional advertisement. Then the user has to drag the cursor around to browse up or down, but the scroll speed is so ridiculous that its impossible to catch the last spot where the cursor was. Get it together before you start charging. If you are selling something that isn't working in 2018, as a designer and programmer... really you need to explore possibilities for different field of work. ...its just not working out.. no hard feelings

I like this app, because it is simple, straight forward and people are usually really close by. I wouod put 5 stars, but I dislike the change to only being able to boost your items in the news feed a total of four times. I see how they wouldn't prefer it to be flooded constantly, by the same people, but maybe another idea wouold be to limit the amount of items at a time, we can boost, rather than the amount of times so low. Its only four hours each time...otherwise...its great. : )

It's better than Offer Up but it's slowly getting worse. the ads are really annoying as well as the bids. We now have to pay to "boost items" so many time dealers have their items listed on there first. they should have a complete separate tab for dealers. It was nice at first but with all these changes it's getting more difficult to sell and find stuff.
