Nextdoor: Local News, Garage Sales & Home Services review

Nextdoor is an all-in-one social and news app that focuses on your direct neighborhood. That means you can use it to get to know your neighbors, form various groups, sell your household items, or ask for help. When it comes to local issues, Nextdoor becomes your go-to app: no matter what happens, you launch the app and instantly get in the know. Let's see why it's so useful and which features can be especially handy for you.

Interface 9/10

Nextdoor's interface looks just like what you'd expect from such an app. It isn't too modern, but that is because the app tries to reach an audience as broad as possible, so it's designed to be simple. All of the key features are neatly packed into a couple of menus that are represented by intuitive icons, and that makes them accessible. It takes just a tap to switch from local news to yard sale deals, so you don't have to install a couple of separate apps for different interests and needs.

Features 9/10

When it comes to your neighborhood news and events, Nextdoor seems to have it all. You can use it to look for handymen or babysitters, find out about various community activities or businesses, ask for help or share safety tips – in a word, and it's a perfect way to stay connected to your neighbors. What makes it great is that users have to verify their address and use their real names, so you can be sure you're talking to a real person from your town. That means you can use the app to make a street or an entire neighborhood feel friendlier and safer by connecting to people around you.

Usability 8/10

Nextdoor is intuitively designed for ease of use, allowing you to quickly dive into community discussions, sell unwanted items, share your professional profile, or discover fantastic local eateries with just a few clicks. The app efficiently brings the most relevant and intriguing neighborhood happenings directly to you, eliminating the need to search for them. What stands out the most is its versatility, offering a clean and user-friendly interface that presents precisely what you're interested in. This convenience and adaptability make Nextdoor a standout choice for connecting with your community.

Compatibility 6/10

While the app is pretty useful and comfortable, it has serious compatibility issues and other glitches that can really spoil that first impression. Nextdoor doesn't seem to work on certain devices, and the app tends to lose your GPS coordinates from time to time, making you restart it. We've also found a lot of minor bugs, including annoying notifications and freezes, and while you can still use the app, prepare yourself for such things.


A great way to reach out for your neighbors and look for all kinds of local events, Nextdoor offers a variety of useful features that allow you to keep in touch with your community. Free and secure, the app has only one serious problem – occasional bugs that can sometimes be rather annoying.
