Chicken Nuggetz: “Fun, but sometimes glitchy and hard to work with, even with good internet. Overall it's fun. It gives me something to do with my friends whenever I feel bored n stuff and I've always liked the option of customizing your character in games too. I just wish the chat filters weren't so sensitive to non-harmful words as well :[ I would put a 5 star if it wasn't so glitchy or laggy, but the filter doesn't bother me too much. Pretty cool game :]” – 4/5 in Play Store

jade burton: “this is a very well designed game and there is so much to do, from millions of games to unlimited character customization, but when you are playing on Chromebook there are many errors, like glitches and sometimes I leave to use the restroom, I comeback and my screen is froze so I have to restart my chromebook. but overall a great game.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Corey: “The application itself is fine. However, the deliveries are getting worse as time goes on. They have constantly delivered to the wrong house despite the giant #s on each house and mine being the only yellow one. USPS, UPS, FedEx, and OnTrack never get it wrong. When the packages are time sensitive, these mistakes are inexcusable especially when deliveries use to be accurate. Why am i paying for Prime if i have to reorder half of the time? I'll be looking at other options for my deliveries.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Nicholas Soto: “I tried buying two items. My card was locked at the time, but when i unlocked it to update payment, it just added a different order with the same items. So I canceled one of the orders and tried getting a hold of support. There is basically no option to talk about whatever with a real person unless you look into subcategories, which I find dumb. After some time, I got support, and they said they'd be able to reorder the order that got canceled. I was supposed to get an email but haven't so far.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Tori Anne Gianna (Tori): “Pretty happy with this app. I wish it would show you how many people applied to a job, though. They removed that feature. I've found several internships and now a job through Indeed. I have gotten a decent amount of interviews as well. I'm in the design/marketing space. I honestly recommend customizing your resume and not using the Indeed one. Upload your own and make it your own. I think you stand out more that way.” – 4/5 in Play Store

E. D.: “OLD REVIEW BELOW The options for search refinement such as wages or education level, specifically entry level options seem to do nothing. i select entry level and most of the results are nowhere near entry level. many require years of prior experience. idk how but indeed was way better about 4 years ago. NEW REVIEW BELOW Indeed has improved since my last review. Still kinda buggy sometimes but thats probably my end. Search filters do filter. Results seem more accurate. Resumer helper improved.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Valeryia: “Recently a problem with dark/light theme in the app appears. Android 14. The optional theme on the phone is dark, as I understand the app tries to set itself, but it's really messed up (partly dark, the text impossible to read). To get the light theme I have to reset the phone. This is irritating. Everything else is fine. I use Airbnb everytime I need to find a comfortable stay-in for a trip.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Deborah L. Gabrielson: “I Love TextNow! I even purchased a SIM'S Card Once! Only, it didn't work! In order for it to become activated. I had to pay for a monthly plan! I use my phone, mainly for the internet! I can't stand; all of the junk that gets sent into "everything," now day's! Improvements I'd really like to see: Spam Protection/Blocker. Voicemail to actually be recorded to play. And Notification's, Particularly for Received Text! Like I said. I don't usually use the phone, that much!_ OH! Allow Feedback!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Heather Briggs: “Great free texting app! The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because of the pop up notification that comes up on the bottom of my screen around 3-4 times an hour saying "we were unable to complete your purchase" because I purchased the "lock in number for a week" to be able to get verification codes and didn't renew after that first week.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

cameron adams: “Overall it's great. You can easily navigate through the app. The only thing they should fix is when you change some of the specific preferences, like changing to only show shoes in a specific size, if you then swipe left from all to Jordan or anything else, then back to all it will reset your preferences so you then have to go back and select specifics again. This can get pretty annoying especially if you swipe left by accident and then have to reset everything and rescroll to where you were.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Raul Shankar: “Great app, I would give it 5 stars but I'm having a technical difficulty. The member pass QR code won't go away. I can click off of it but it will automatically pop up again after a few seconds. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail. Help would be appreciated” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Gail Cormier: “Since the update last week, my old app kept freezing and telling me there was an error. To fix that, i needed to turn off my cell and reboot each time I wanted to use yelp. I eventually Uninstalled the app, came here and installed a newer version. The new version has some of the older features that I missed, like looking at your ratings average. The only thing I DON'T LIKE is I can not look at my past reviews easily. You really have to dig for them. I would like the quick access to reviews.” – 3/5 in Play Store

David Moser: “Website SUCKS! Mobile site will not detect location (allowed), nor will it search by zip code. Going to the map freezes the page at the bottom so you can only see a sliver of the map and you can't scroll up. No option to open the full site over the mobile site. Shameful. Thankfully, the app is MUCH better! Searches kept trying to default to San Francisco, even though my location is turned on and I have my city in my profile. It was annoying to have to change the search filter each time.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Aaron Morgan: “All data displayed is old, charts don't update. In certain "high profile" tickers, it'll just display straight up false data for hours. Interesting. Somehow the post and pre ticker pricing is always way off. I pretty much use this for the list, but if I want to see the current price or chart of any ticker I have to look it up on Google. No idea why this app can't show accurate stock data, since that's all it is supposed to do. Update: works pretty well now” – 4/5 in Play Store

Amir Zeenreich: “Downgraded the experience from 5 stars after the recent very non-user friendly update In short, it was decided to move the very helpful Markets feature from the main screen to some much harder to get to area in the app under Search Even then, navigating between the US, European and Asian markets is very cumbersome If it ain't broken, don't fix it!” – 2/5 in Play Store

Cons May not have all the features of the full website, some users have reported issues with the app crashing or freezing

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “I think the app is simple and it works well. The biggest issue I have is that on any purchases over $100, I have no option to just 'pay it's. Being able to plan it is great, but that's for a fee. Sometimes, I pay on the card just to pay it all off later (groceries for example). It would be great to have a 'pay it's option on every purchase. It is doable since they allow other options to split it or plan it.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Chris Pope: “The current balance is not included below each transaction, making it extremely difficult to track how much you've charged. Other apps I've used such as Bank of America keep a running total balance next to each transaction, so if you like to pay off your total balance, then you can see what pending charges aren't being included in that payment. Without that transparency, it is incredibly frustrating to pay off total balance and have that balance spike back up when the pending charges post.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

aimee dodson: “it's wasteful and kind of lazy honestly that we as a people consume as much as we do and then we just throw it away when we're done we're bored with it. it doesn't make sense to throw something away that is still useful or unbroken. I love this app cuz it orchestrates and encourages us, with very little extra effort, to instead of trashing things that are still useful, getting stuff we don't want to or use anymore to people who may need it. 100 upside!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Shirl Churchill: “This app is a great find & I would have given 5 stars until I started getting ads on it. It takes a bit longer to sift thru to see what I want to. That said, a couple improvements could help make it easier and more helpful. It would be nice to have a better idea of the distance between the item and my location. The actual mileage difference is significant. Also, having to use multiple apps to communicate is nice but requires joining apps I'd rather not. But, its great to give items a new home.” – 4/5 in Play Store
