This "app" is junk! It won't load and I keep having to refresh just to get the same trash from 69 days ago. It doesn't show anything current.

Just a place for people from the ghetto nowhere near me to spam notifications begging people to give them cars, computers, and furnish their homes for free. I've even seen them posting links to things they want from Amazon, asking people to go buy them for them. I'd rather throw my old stuff in the garbage. That's how annoying these people are. They have no shame.

I thought it was a Freecycle app and that I could just login. It appears to be an app covering several services and I have to register yet again. This needs to be made clear in the description; I can see that there are advantages in having one app to cover everything but it's very frustrating when I'm trying to login and being told my email isn't registered

Feedback system need serious rework as right now anyone who messaged can leave negative feedback which is terrible bug.

This app is trash seems to me it's been abandoned and no longer been used at all. If this app isn't getting anyone on here using it, take it off completely instead of wasting money on something that no one is going to use.

I am not happy with the Feedback system. Safety is important and I have someone contact me with a red 'minus 8' feedback score. What on earth does that mean? There are many rude people too and when I try to leave feedback it tells me to wait before giving negative feedback. Not good enough really

Everything is working perfectly in my Samsung S10. The app is very useful, I am offering from our charity and I am getting offers from others 😀 Thank you 🧡

Since updating the app no longer loads on a Samsung S10+ keep getting spinning wheel and app fails to load. Tried reinstalling and get the same spinning wheel on a white background when launching app, also get the same if I try and access through the webpage, and I'm on WiFi with 120mb vigin media, no other connection or app issues on device.

I suspect spoof accounts to make givers feel like there is actual interest in offering. This is because, out of three offers, I got 8 expressions of interest of which two actually engaged in messaging. Other 6 never responded to my follow-up messages and all had only one message to me with suspiciously similar responses to offers all very similar and including poor grammar such as "Id like to come get this please when would be best for you" and "If person does not come I’m interested pls".

App keeps crashing. When I uninstall and reinstall again it seems to work but obviously this is not ideal. I have to do this 5 times since downloading app 2 weeks ago! Otherwise great way to share unwanted items without taking to the tip.

I've been using trashnothing for four months & have given away lots of stuff since then; I'm constantly clearing out my home, so giving away my unwanted items via this app is great! Mostly a good & easy app to use; a few weirdos/creepy men that send messages about collecting an item late at night but other than that, it's really good! I would advise you NOT to give out your personal address, if they want to collect (I live near a school, so I meet there, to give my items away)

A good app that I use often to re-home items but there are some issues. The map feature on android doesn't show the location of posters as it's supposed to. The app can crash quite often or get stuck on the last page I was on.

I don't like how you have to explain why you would like to he considered for an item in hopes your chosen. If things are free it should be 1st come 1st serve.

I just downloaded this app and absolutely nothing works. I'm going to wait till tomorrow and try it again and then if it doesn't work I'm going to delete it. I love freecycle and was looking forward to using this.... Update: the service department responded quickly and was very helpful, unfortunately I don't have enough internet at my house to use this app, my coverage is very spotty. So I have to use the website not the app.

Great app, extremely helpful. My only gripe is the app seems to hold a bunch of uploads for a duration and then throw them out there all at once, so my notifications will go absolutely crazy! And they're not coming from the same person posting, there's normally a few different individuals from different areas. I hope they sort that, as it's very irritating, otherwise an awesome app!

The Trash Nothing app is easy to use but unfortunately even when I tick Freecycle options, it never links the posts to the Freecycle sites. I've now got to manually upload the same ads to Freecycle and reply by email as I can't use Freecycle through the app. Otherwise, it's a great idea, especially now in lockdown when the charity shops are closed and we've got more time to declutter!

Easy to use app that has really helped me with decluttering my home and office. About half of the items I've listed have been picked up by someone. In one case, a person new to town who simply needed furniture. What had been clutter to me was a new start for her.

Hey its not that people not willing to give. I gave a whole lot on Trashnothing Mostly new items. Some people want everything you post then get a attuide when you dont give it to them. I had a person whom I gave a whole lot to and she felt that I suppose to give her every single thing that I post and when I dint she made a fake new profile trying to pretend to be a new person giving the same sad story asking for the same items. Its ppl want everything you post and I want to give to many

Very hard to manage inbox. You can't organize by unread, the unread and read look exactly the same and when you reply to someone it automatically jumps to the top, so your emails are lost again between read and unread. It is a great app for posting as well as garnering alot of interest.

So far this app has worked well in listing my offerings and responding to others' listings. Notifications of responses has also worked well. I love finding items for free and finding a new home for items I no longer use. Much better way to recycle than filling up the landfills!

I have found this free giveaway attracts people that appear interested and ask for and address and then you never hear back from them. Makes me concerned they are scouting for burglaries. The only reliable people I found are the ones requesting something I have. I have taken down my posts and uninstalled the app. It's not the apps fault, just the idea that people interested in free stuff are unreliable.

I like the website and concept but the app has problems with messaging. Edited post response: It isn't just me having problems. Most people I contact end up moving to email or text because of the issues the app has with messaging. I think it needs an overhaul.

I do like this application overall. It is a little confusing to navigate through it initially, but after a few times going through the different screen changes its not so bad. But As far as finding "trashy treasures"all around your area, its a great application .

I appreciate the response but there is a site claiming the name so this is misrepresented when not associated with the site. There are many free and giving sites but if it is not related to the specific site then it does not make sense to claim the same name. Had this been presented as a separate site then it wouldn't have been an issue. But it has not been.

It is kind of a useless app unless you're going to be waiting forever to get some kind of response. If you are requesting an item. You are just better off buying it instead of waiting for it. The app itself is not bad.

Not sure there's anybody out there. Please enable "number of views" function so I can see whether I'm the only human using this app. Also, did you know that emailed links don't open the app? That's just primitive. 3 stars given for the good and laudable intentions. Technically, not deserved at all.

App needs a lot of work. Seems flaky, needs manual forced refreshes constantly. Seems like a website wrapped in an app. Would be better to just use the website. Unlike the website, can't withdrawal an offer or mark it gofted. And no way to edit posts so once you offer something you have no way to correct anything.

There is one main improvement I'd like to see. Which is that I'd like to see a DRAFTS FEATURE. It would be even better if the MODERATOR COULD VIEW those drafts so that if he/she can see other posts already on the app/website and speed up the giving/receiving process.Think about it... People could potentially own stuff and be DELAYING giving things away because their POSTS are IMPERFECT.

Pretty decent site. Needs more people using it and the response time from people seems to take forever. I mostly like it because it has the request from people and I enjoy helping others as I can, even if I'm only able to link them to another posting that maybe out of there area a bit. Will recommend and everyday user so far!! Thanks guy's!!

Yes, instead of buying new stuff ,second hand lets you use whats already here. This app is cool cause it lets u request something u need/want & then lets others in the area see & help out. I would rather have a nicely taken care, well made coat, then a cheap, poorly made new one🌸🌱🌸 And i dont see the point in spending 100 on a coat when i can find one just as nice either at thirft stores or online second hand sites for 20 bucks or less!!!

They app works fine for me. I mainly use the website because I'm mostly on my computer. Regardless of the app, the concept is worth it. I've been able to find some items for my family, like a TV, Bed frame, and a few others things. I'll be posting my first give away after my yard sale. What doesn't sale will be given away free.

Just signed up using my Google account. Please add an option to change Google (gravatar) on freecycle accounts. For privacy reasons I would not like my G photo publicly displayed by default and no options to change it. Even just replacing it would a default icon would be great. Until then I might have to close my Freecycle account and maybe sign in with something else. FYI for some users its necessary to use a portrait photos with Google account. Google is used for many services ofcourse.

Great idea but app is buggy.and inconsistent Ever ttime try to load pictures it freezes then crashes, and then I lose the description I typed and have to start all over.

Just downloaded this app as i thought it would be a quick and easier utility than the other well know 'freecycle' website. However, as soon as i registered and started writing my first 'give away' post, the app would not let me scroll, meaning I could not proceed with the intended ability if the app...reading other reviews in the last MONTH, this seems to still be an issue. How has this bug not been rectified yet? Unfortunately I am just going to have to use my other account on the other site.

The easily fixable and really major flaw of the trash-nothing app is that once your item has sold, you can't update your ad. My item sold within the afternoon I posted it but I'm still having to reply to 6 or 7 people everyday saying 'sorry they're no longer available'. Very frustrating.

I have happily used the app for a few years but the recent update is horrible! the scroll is extremely glitchy and I give up after a couple of attempts of trying to scroll down only to end up bouncing back to where I started or even further back up the listings. edit* 07/05/19 Nope still having the exact same issue.

What a con. I downloaded the app so i could see the posts from my local Freecycle group. I got shown six posts that were obviously nothing to do with Freecycle and aren't on the website. I know that the original Yahoo group was closed in 2009. The posts I saw wouldn't be allowed on my local group as some of them were 50 miles and two counties away. Hardly saving the planet wasting that amount of fuel. I think you need to take the Freecycle name off the app as it's misleading, even fraudulent.

I joined this app as I've just bought my first house and could've used a little help to get on my feet. Sadly this app has a rule that you can only ask for an item once you have offered one yourself - not everyone is in a position to be able to offer something, hence why they use the likes of these apps. My advice is to stick to Shpock and Gumtree!

It's not a bad app if you want to get rid of clutter. I decluttered my entire house through this site which I am thankful for. HOWEVER once an item has been collected I then mark it as taken but I continue to receive tonnes of emails about the item which absolutely infuriating to ignore them or respond to every email saying the item has been taken.

Very misleading. Uses the word (brand?)

I wanted to get rid of a couple of pet cages rather than taking to the local authority recycling centre where they would have been melted for their raw materials. Better to give them away I thought. Downloaded the app, opened an account with my Google credentials took a couple of pictures, wrote a short description and submitted the ad. Had several enquiries and the cages were picked up the following day. Seems like there's an active community out there. App works, but looks rather dated. Pictures do not enlarge. eBay and Gumtree look more appealing, but I'm sure they've had mega bucks thrown at their development. Pleased with this app and experience overall.

The app did the initial connection just fine but updating beyond that seems to be impossible. Indianapolis has thousands of posters, I don't believe nothing has been posted in 6 days.

Most useful app I've come across for a long long time. Freecycle was good but always was a bit of a pain to use. In fact I'd stopped using it, but since finding trash nothing it's become a daily obsession. All I can say is well done you to the developer who has, in conjunction with the freecycle groups, managed to keep so much stuff out of landfill. With more thinking like this the planet may yet be saved. Tinkerty tonk old fruit and down with the Nazis.

Very useful app to recycle items, let's try to help the planet. Moreover you get what you looking for for free, it's a win win. The app is running very smootly in my device. :)

If you live in a small city there isn't much to choose from. 3 out of the 4 ads that did show up were a bit far, the same ad and was for someone asking for something. Maybe better if you live in a big city.

Aside from a couple good experiences, I have not had good luck with this. The app is fine, but the community sucks. I'm not trying to get free stuff either, I'm giving it away. People never show up, or email once and disappear. The community that this app creates is held together by a flaccid web of entitlement and laziness.

This is a very useful app. I've found items from very nice responsible people. A big THANK YOU to them. My only complaint... I wish offers and wants would automatically delete after a week. There are some pretty old ads out there that owners forget about and it's disappointing when they tell you it's been gone a while or worse yet, they don't respond at all! So for that, this app gets only 4 stars. Developers: please make some changes to address old ads.

Your mileage may vary, but there is an INCREDIBLE about of quality things on offer in Philadelphia and surrounding counties. I mean, I've received a free 55" TV, some cleaning supplies, boots for my son who outgrows them every year, and more. I even look at the "wants" from other people, and when they are looking to replace somethingthat has broken, I offer to fix it for free, as I'm electronics expert. Don't forget to post the things you no longer need! I do! And it's the "cycle" in Freecycle! Love it!
User
Oct 2, 2016
Added this because I am trying to get hold of old fashioned cassette audio racks and can't buy them anywhere. Hardly anything useful on offer, but long list of 'wants' for people who presumably have been socialised into thinking they are entitled to things for free. Eg. Digital SLR camera wanted, Xbox games wanted... seriously?

Hopefully more people will use this app giving a greater variety of choice. @developer, chrome ads popped open once since uninstalling this app, so it's not this one causing it. I don't even have chrome open at the time. Just doing general stuff on my phone and suddenly chrome opens with a spam ad, but as said, it's not this app causing it. Have edited star rating, thanks

Disappointed not to be able to upload photos as well. Can take a photo and post but not upload a previous one. No point directing me to the website as I want to take the photos from my phone without the faff of moving them around. Other than that I found it nice to be able to combine my groups.

I love the idea of this app, but I already have a freecycle account I use online that is linked to my facebook and when I click Login on the app it asks me to login on my facebook but then still thinks I have no groups. I'm sure this is great for new people who don't already interact with freecycle, but I have to keep using web browser because I want all my current groups and posts to be connected.
User

The app probably works fine, but the experience was weird. You can't just use it, you have to sign up. So I did. And I was signed up to 3 "groups." And then I had to wait to be approved by these groups, which can take minutes or days. I just wanted to poke around the freakin' app! Wanted to see if I could give away toaster or pick up a chair or whatever, and now I'm a "member' of 3 Trash Nothing groups and getting daily email summaries of new posts. ?? I already know how to use search, people... The app does what it's supposed to do I guess, but the whole experience was not what I expected. Uninstalling.

This app is useless. It was recommended on a website for being able to find sometimes valuable items listed for free. I signed up, joined all 6 groups which each had over 500 members a piece, and there were only FOUR listings of actual items. Everything else was just people wanting free stuff. Of course people want things for free, we don't need an app that lists everybody's wishlist. Uninstalled.

This app works fine, and really simpifies the task of monitoring both Freegle and Freecycle (I want to collect tools for a charity that refurbs them & sends them out to the third world). Well done the developers! And whingers should just grow up. The guy(s) are doing their best. And if you need to use the web-based system, so what? This is still a worthwhile idea. POST SCRIPT The more I see the more I am impressed. Wants and offers in different colours, daily updates, operates with both Freecycle and Freegle - what's not to like?

Have only had hassle free experience using the app, simple to use, everyone should look at the big picture. The app works and allows us to donate otherwise tip destined goods given them a new life and letting us do our good deed for the day. Yes a better looking UI would be good but not essential. Happy free-cycling 🆓🔀🔃

Wish I'd read the reviews before installing. Not a very practical app and full of adware from what I can see. It might be about saving stuff from landfill but it sure generates a lot of superfluous data traffic. Stick to the website or just your email program with suitable filters in place.

I downloaded this on my phone so I could get the new postings. We live so far out that when Im in an area I thought the app would let me search for items in that area. So far it just boots me out of the app when I try to do anything. Its not possible on my phone to switch internet browsers, so this app is worthless to me.

I was so excited for this app! I wanted to be able to browse my normal groups quickly and post/answer ads. Well not only can I not post anything but I can only read the tiny description in the home page. Everytime I try to post or open a post the app closes. I have read that everyone has this issue and the only way to fix it is to "use the web app, and bookmark it". Well that doesn't work for me. My internet browsers do not work well, which is why apps are created to have an easy alternative to website

I was super excited to see this on here. I go to start a group for my area and the keyboard wouldn't pop up allowing me to type it in. The map to select your area wouldn't work as well. Pretty buggy. Another thing that'll draw people in is your app resizing to the screen. Scrolling over to see the rest of a sentence can be frustrating. I know y'all will get it to where it needs to be, I can't wait too see it fine tuned.
