Mooch is an online inventory-sharing app that allows you and your friends to share more and buy less. From tools and camping equipment to household items and baby supplies, Mooch allows you to find it and borrow it from friends without wasting money on something you only need to use for a short period of time.
How It Works
Once you download the app, create your account and search for items by contact or by category. To return the favor and allow others to Mooch from you, add items to your inventory by snapping a few photos.
Quick View Item Tracking
Forgot who’s mooching what? The app includes a quick view item tracking screen so you can easily view what’s been mooched, who mooched it, and when.
Connect With Friends
Grow your Mooch network by finding friends already on the app and inviting others to try it. The great thing is, it’s 100% free to download and use.
Added the ability to select multiple images for an item at the time of creation.
Fixed a bug related to Facebook permissions.
Ratings and Reviews
Needs to be more usable
Very good setup but just 2 suggestions:
•I get that you want to limit it to a friends-only network, but a public exchange should really be considered so that it’s more usable when your own network isn’t as interested or very big. It can be made based on a rating system so you know whether to trust or not trust someone.
•the Fashion option should be expanded... I was hoping to use this set up a clothing swap network with friends, but for that to work there needs to be more room to type the size, brand, type of clothing, etc.

I have been needing this app for sometime! I have always been keen on lending things and forgetting about to whom it was lent. It would be nice to know who has a power tool that I’m in need of vs. having to call around or rent. I definitely could have used this during my fraternity days in college. Awesome!
Finally, a Way To Track Loaned Items
This makes loaning so much more convenient and efficient. Over the years I have lost a humidifier, 22’ rifle, untold amount of tools and general stuff like DVD’s. Now I can Finally loan without the worry that the borrower forgets who they borrowed from, as well as me on whom I loaned it to.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
