Ratings and Reviews
Missing key functions
Help and Support should have a link for app feedback since this app is so brand new. I read all the reviews and you keep asking for us to contact you, but neither is there a link to email you, nor is there a link to rate the app, nor is there a way to provide direct feedback. Getting redirected to the website is counterintuitive.
My first experience with the app was today. You sent me multiple emails and placed popups on the website that the app is Apple friendly, I say you’re missing key components. Even as I type this review, I can relax again with my auto-capitalize settings and my ability to let my keyboard predict the word I want to use. I can double tap space bar for a period and all “I” ‘s are autocorrected to be capitalized. Maybe a different between UK and USA, but if you’re Apple friendly, let the auto’s work. Also when typing a response I can see about 4-5 words at a time....when I text someone, my text box grows as I type and when I need to review what I’m responding to, I can scroll up and see more while my phone auto-condenses my typing box to about the size of your normal default typing box.
If you truly value our feedback, make this app more user friendly.

Hello FarmerCA, Thank you for your feedback and you have raised some great points. Firstly here is the link to our site help centre where you can leave feedback about the App and contact our Membership Services Team who will be happy to discuss the App and take any feedback from you.https://support.trustedhousesitters.com/hc/en-gb
The technology that we are using does not currently support the auto complete function, we are working closely with the technology provided and as soon as they do support autocomplete we will get that function enabled in our App. It is really helpful to know what our users need and please do send any further feedback to our support team via the link. Thank you #TeamTrusted
Highs and lows with this App
I was quite excited at the prospect of having an app for TrustedHousesitters. However, the last few times I have tried to use it either with my iPad or iPhone it has been very glitchy. As I prefer to use the microphone for entering text it didn’t work at all which was quite frustrating. Even when I was trying to manually enter text to respond to an invite the text window would not open sufficiently for me to see more than two words at a time and the app would not rotate on my iPad to make viewing easier, instead it either had a quarter screen view or two times magnification view, neither of which were useful. My other pet peeve is with the daily emails to notify me of the latest house sits as soon as I click to start looking at them a pop up appears suggesting I go to the App. Even when I close it out it pops up again which is really frustrating. When I open the App it doesn’t retain my login credentials so I have to do it each time, would prefer a fingerprint option or the choice to retain my login credentials so I don’t have to enter them each time.

Hello 7492x, Thank you for taking the time to review our App. I am sorry to hear that you are finding it glitchy as we have had very low reports of any bugs. I can definitely help you get a better user experience when using the App and your iPad although these will mean using them separately. The App has not been built for the iPad and this is why on your iPad it will try and revert it to landscape and you are having sizing/viewing issues. When using your iPad it is best to use the website and safari should support you using your microphone to add text. The App is designed to be used with your iPhone and we do not have voice functionality, however, its great feedback and good to know that it is a requirement of our users. Using the App to browse inventory and check your messages on the go and your iPad and the website to send messages would be a great combination of both! The App should retain your login details - when you are using it on the iPhone if it still does not retain your login details please get in touch and we can look into this for you. I will also pass the feedback to our Marketing Team regarding the pop-up reminder - It is great to know your thoughts on this and I will most definitely feed it back. Thank you #TeamTrusted
Bad reviews are mistaken... this looks and works great!
Not sure what the other reviewers are complaining about! Searching by location, date, and duration works fine. The app is a little sensitive to touch and registers clicks sometimes when I mean to swipe (hence 4 stars), but I’m sure that will be fixed in later updates. Otherwise it works fine. It is also easy to navigate and view. The design is clean and uncluttered.
I really appreciate that TH has come out with a phone app, and I’m sure the push notifications for my saved searches are going to come in super handy. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time!
(Also lol @ the person who downrated this for being a paid service. TH is a great service and worth the money, and the yearly fee has nothing to do with whether the app is good or not.)
Get all of your passes, tickets, cards, and more in one place.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
