Core systems and features are buggy. Cannot buy connects from within app when bidding on work and the chat system randomly sends a text in the middle of typing or enters multiple timesadding new lines. I have to apologize ahead of time to every client I talk to because half a sentence can be very awkward when you're quickly trying to type out the second half. Very difficult to work with.

The web version is a little bit better and I like all of the features in messages, like the able to save attachments from a conversation, and to keep private notes about a customer. That is great. But on both platforms it's easy to get scammed and way too hard to report a scam. And it's nearly impossible to talk to a human. You have to send one message then wait two days, and hope they answered you, otherwise you gotta wait and wait.

I have used this for the last 3 years and it started out great. However over the last year, the app stopped notifying my with messages at times and when I try chatting with clients in the app, it glitches a lot and messes up the spacing and formatting of my texts. Resetting my phone, the app, clearing the cache, nothing works.
