Work in progress
THE GOOD: The app is great for quick searches and checking messages.
THE BAD: 1. You can't make advanced filter searches as you do on the desktop version e.g. You're not able to search then order ads from lowest to highest price.
2. When viewing pictures in full screen you can't scroll along all of them, only see the first few.
3. The reply box to messages is so incredibly small you struggle to see what you've written.
Overall, it's a decent accompaniment to the main site but it needs to be more than that. It needs to be a fully functional stand alone app.
Not entirely sure why this app gets such a high score.
It's fine for a quick search or for checking message but there are basic options not available. Like search options which are available on the web version but not in the app.
No quick way to see someone's ad, apart from clicking on their profile and going to their room adverts. On the web version this is at the top of the message.
No easy way to share a room. You can use the ad reference but should be easy to share a room to Whatsapp/Facebook with one button.
No way to order the search results like on the website.
There are bugs in displaying pictures. If you click on anything but the first picture, the captions are wrong and sometimes doesn't let you scroll at all.
The custom price slider is terrible. Why not let us just type the amount?
A useful enough app, but improving a few things could make it really good.
Handy app to have, always use this when I've been looking for a houseshare, only thing I would say is when you have a wanted ad and you want to see how many people have looked/ shown interest in your ad it could do with a refresh button as you have to go back to your ad, tap it and only then will it show you the latest interest in your ad, it doesn't seem to always do this automatically when you open the app. But otherwise a good usefull app.
