I downloaded this app and almost immediately deleted it. There are several things wrong within the app itself. Just do yourself a favor and find another app.
Scam left after right & right after left... hard to see if one is real! & for an app one has to PAY for... STEP IT UP ROOMSTER
This is the worst app ever in the world. It is not safe at all. People just ask for privacy information and security deposits. People just listing unreal places and pictures. Be careful! This app does not have a real support.
I am 26 years old and own a house near Arizona State University. Its a 4 person house and have found 2 or 3 great tenants from roomster, and 2 tenants referred by friends. The people I met from the app ended up being reliable people, and I commend this app for that. The filtering to find these great people is horrendous. The weekly charges are terribly high and unjustified. Roomster zooms in on pictures you upload so I have to spend an hour on a different app before I upload on this app so it displays correctly. At times, I think I could open my own app and run this bad company out of business. Until then, it serves a purpose; Roomster’s execution is terrible but it serves a purpose. It is only a limited amount of time until a better company can fill this space for consumers and I look forward to that day as a long time user
Only thing I can compare it to is those fake dating apps. You have to pay just to message someone and they never message back. Either it’s fake accounts or the app doesn’t work. Judging from all the other reviews it’s probably just fake accounts. You have to pay for a background check and I’d verification and all this other stuff that I didn’t do after I paid the 10 dollars to message people and it didn’t work. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!
So I get a message on this app (probably a "welcome" message) before they ask you to upgrade and pay a fee. It's also hard to refine your filters to look for a place. The navigation within the app isn't very friendly. Leaves a lot to be desired. Sorry but I'm not paying for this.
If you want to add expensive spam to your mailbox each day, this app is for you! Too expensive for anyone to use as a tool for future planning, with the incredible weekly cost. When messages come in, they aren’t even connections within 20 miles of your destination, and are just fishing for your info. The app forced me to be 18. Couldn’t delete it fast enough!
This app is TRASH. You have to pay to see messages from potential roommates. $9.99 a WEEK. I needed a place so I tried to purchase it, and I can see that it’s registered on Apple, but it doesn’t work! I still can’t see the messages. This feels like a total scam.
$10 a week ???? Overpriced.
This app is so difficult to navigate and many of the features are broken. It is a very frustrating experience trying to accurately use the interface. Would recommend using competitor apps.
