Great in concept, execution needs a little work

I love this app – my neighborhood is really active and I’d say that 90% of what we post gets picked up within a week. My biggest complaint is the notifications. Even with permissions all set in my phone, I rarely get a notification through the app itself. It’s usually 24+ hours after the fact that I notice an email and check. Even if you’re diligent about checking for notifications, sometimes only one message will load at a time. Once you’ve replied, you may notice you have more requests for the same item that weren’t there before, sometimes with an earlier time stamp. I’m only finally reviewing the app because I’ve gotten messages from other users apologizing for the same issues so I figured it’s not on my end.

Purchased by Mistake Please Refund

I downloaded this app & made the in app purchase based on recommendations from a friend. However, this was not the correct app. I’ve tried to delete my account. I have not used this at all. Only had less than a few days & have been trying to figure out how to return & get refund as I purchased by mistake. Please assist. Thank you so much!

Good intentions, subpar app experience

To piggyback another review, well intentioned but the app experience really holds it back. I first learned / started using Olio about 5 years ago and the app seems to have gotten worse over the years. A lot of this would probably be solved with a tighter, native app replacing the existing one. Notification badges don’t clear, navigation is very clunky, heavy handed game mechanics, and so on.

Good intentions

I appreciate what the founders were going for, but the app experience falls short. It’s really hard to schedule pick-ups, and managing listings is a pain. I want to choose default values for all new listings I create rather than having to set them every single time (e.g., number of days to stay listed, availability). Even if I need to work around this problem by manually setting it on each of my listings, the values I choose don’t always persist (e.g., number of days listed keeps saving as 5 days rather than the value I selected).

How to submit bug reports?

How? Also the interface was written by someone without the concept of orthogonality

sign up doesn’t work

I tried the magic link sign up on both my phone and laptop— neither works. Why put the sign up screen before I even have a chance to scroll through the app?? unnecessary friction

Delicious homemade bread

Manuel was prompt in replying and very accommodating. I ordered two breads, one wholemeal/white mix and another rye with fruits and nuts of my choice! Picked up nice and fresh, stays fresh for several days and freezes well too! Will definitely order again !

Great idea but fix your app

I shouldn’t have to delete and re-install an app just to get the basic function of notifications to work, and then ultimately fail at the next update. Especially for an app in which notifications are important.

Buggy

Signed up with my email. App asked me to log in using a link via email. I tried several times and every time it shows “page not found”. So called “magic link” is so stupid and buggy.
