Whilst the Freegle concept is entirely admirable and one should wholeheartedly support it, unfortunately apps such as this do not help its cause. Since the move was made to the new Freegle direct platform some time ago, the web interface has become so much more difficult to use (the silly sliding chat window notably annoying). Naturally an app is launched as an "answer" (ensuring exclusion of those not using recent, and very un-free, Android or iOS platforms) but even after several release iterations it remains unreliable and difficult to use. As someone who contributed to the Freegle charity I don't feel the money was well spent. No more. Update: I see the response inevitably referred to moving away from ye olde Yahoo groups but by that misses the concern about the ongoing problems with the app and its silly bouncing chat window. I really like to Freegle but why not make it easy?
Great for all people & a kind thing to do & helping each other in times of need or anytime.
app keeps going off when I'm writing messages to people. this is only started happening since last update. other than that this app is brilliant and easy to use
Impossible to even sign up No idea if this is any good as you have to sign up first. As the fields required for sign up don't work I have uninstalled. Will use Freecycle website which seems much easier to use and people often reply.
Easy to use Makes listing of unwanted items a piece of cake
- Chat and event improvements
- Added volunteer opportunities listing
- Invite options added
- Show how many freeglers are interested in items
- Add links to privacy etc on help page
