What neighbors are saying:
“Before Nextdoor, I didn’t know there were several qualified babysitters living nearby and looking for work. It was easy to feel comfortable hiring my neighbor’s daughter to watch my son after school.” - Patrick, Mission East
“This year for Spring Cleaning, we wanted to sell old appliances, tools, clothing, and electronics on Nextdoor’s For Sale & Free section. In no time, our neighbors stopped by to make a deal and take things off our hands. It was easier than anything else, and it feels good knowing our household items have found a new home in the neighborhood.” - Dan, Hayes Valley
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Nextdoor doesn't run GPS in the background unless you give us permission by turning on optional features that require it.
We fixed a crash in For Sale & Free section! We're always working hard to make the Nextdoor app even better, so your experience is fun, fast, and bug-free.
Ratings and Reviews
VERY GOOD APP!
This App has been helpful in so many ways - most of which were covered in the review above! Hearing the good - and the bad - from neighbors helps me, and am glad that my tips and my experiences over many years have been helpful to others. The most helpful to me are reports of crime, tips, and lost pets that I could possibly lookout for. But the lost pets are also the WORST - but probably most important - feature because there are so MANY, and most have no tags and/or microchips. It is really upsetting. We can remind people about getting I.D.’s and that a local law requires that pets be licensed/registered with the City. Our reminders may be annoying but if this App helps find/save even one animal, it is worth having. I have actually had a few technical problems with this App. Sometimes my incoming posts/emails stop appearing. My settings had not changed on my end but maybe something happens with the Network when the App software is updated. I have so far been able to solve my problems using the HELP feature and/or a prompt response from one of the “Reps”. I do wish there were maps that show the street “boundaries” of each neighborhood. It would help when choosing which neighborhoods to add to my mailing list or give me an idea where the crimes are happening without anyone having to give any street name if they do not want to.
Great to be part of the Neighborhood!
I enjoy this app for the most part and find the good outweighs the bad for me. I like that our neighborhood beat cop can post information and alerts; it has an option to list items for sale or go to the marketplace if you’re shopping; keeps me updated on road closures/construction; neighbors can post/reply to each other - we’ve discussed alternatives to our local cable company; neighbors reporting suspicious activity and one even uploaded a surveillance video of someone stealing a package off their porch)...and the like. Plus you can choose how large you want your neighborhood to be - the whole city or specific neighborhoods. What I don’t like is really only the lost/found pets posts. When i first joined, I saw a post and thought how useful this is, what a beneficial service - and it totally is! But I had no idea how many animals go missing or are found in my area. Easily 4 posts per day on different animals - so I get 4 emails that day - because I get a new email for each new post (not the replies to them, thank goodness). Now I could alleviate this by reducing my neighborhood area, or by opting out of email alerts - either of which I want to do because I like to keep up with what’s going on in my area - I guess I’m a cyber-Mrs. Cravitts. Anyway, I think most people, even student renters, would like this app.
This app can be very helpful for people new to the area and for lost and found pets, etc.
However it can also be a big source of stress and/or anxiety! Because people being people means there will be those who agree with you but then there will always be those who do not. Thats fine. But when its expressed in combative and/or hostile or mocking tones it isnt a pleasure. People seem to revert to middle school mentality at times and behave in very unkind and very pessimistic ways. This journey of life that we're all on together could be so much better if ee in fact conducted ourselves with respect, kindness, positive outlook, and the golden rule;
If you cant say anything nice, dont say nothing at all! Think, will any good result from my comment? Will anyone be hurt or offended by my comment? Maybe I shouldnt make that comment?
I just think that life, and the world in general, would be so much sweeter if we all behaved as though we actually cared about each other! Whats the line in the song used on the commercial last fall? "We are life. We are one. We are HOW WE TREAT EACH OTHER WHEN THE DAY IS DONE"
That is so true! So why cant we treat each other better?! I dare you all to be nice and to be optimistic for one week. Keep track of daily bullet points so at end of week you can access. Good luck keeping cool all!!
