  • Works to help connect people :)

    I found two great roomies on this app. Really easy to navigate. I found the map feature very helpful for people already with available listings. But in the end, the app helped most with helping me find people looking to move around the same time frame and with the same neighborhoods in mind. We opt-ed to ignore the listings section and go apt hunting ourselves. Love that the app includes smoking/non smoking, pets/no pets, cleaning habits, etc. All helpful in initiating those conversations with strangers and being upfront about living expectations.
  • Worked great.

  • Trash

    By I don't think i have a nickname
    The app tries to make you pay to communicate with other people. Yet the only people looking for “roommates” are trashy slumlords who overcharge per-room and want you to pay them an upfront fee as well. Anytime you see a room advertised by a “partner” it means you’re being scammed
  • Not that good

    It’s somewhat functional but I’ve found so many bugs - can’t save my bio, have to keep setting my roommate preferences, the incorrect people show up under my preferences, etc. also it’s REALLY hard to get someone to reply to you on this app and my apartment is pretty amazing (got tons more traction on Facebook groups) so I’m guessing it’s just an app people download and then forget about. I like your concept Roomi, but it’s not quite there yet. Keep developing and fixing the bugs and you’ll be good.
  • Joke

    By Killmefirst
    What a joke of an app. Only somewhat useful in select locations. Doesn’t even have Boston as a search result. They’re just looking to hit as many people they can for the cost of a back ground check. So many better options out there...
  • Constant crashes 10.3.3 iPad

    By MrSinatra-MDW
    Used to love the app, until I couldn't even start it anymore. Even before that it just would randomly crash. Using iOS 10.3.3 on an iPad, no other choice. I'm hardly alone, apple stopped updating for millions of devices at that level. I don't blame iOS tho, bc my other apps don't crash, Roomi is just not made well for us cave dwellers.
  • Improve your filters

    2
    By 2jp3
    Wish there was a way to filter rooms that DON’T ask for a deposit. Also wish there was. And wish there was a way to filter by “near x train station” Also it’s annoying that you’re constantly asking me to put “where are you moving from”. Obviously the same place. I shouldn’t have to constantly put this when I send a message to someone. Same thing with length of duration. Also, what would be great is if I can actually filter when I want my move-in date to be - and it only shows me listings that are on or after my move-in date. If my filter says I’m moving in May 1, why show me listings asking for someone in March?

    Hey I like the way the app is set up but one concerning issue. I would like to address is I live in Michigan, and there is no listings for it when asked where I want to live. is this unfixable or can you add my area in?

  • Shady partner companies

    By emailparser
    I booked a room through the app but the company that was renting out the room was more than shady. Even two months after moving out they have not returned the security deposit. I expect the app to be more careful in who to work with... additionally I had to pay a hefty fee to roomi a fee to move into the place. Never again...
  • Helpful for quickly finding a room!

    My personal experience along with those I know who have used this application had been mostly only positive, with successful results. The people using the app to rent or find housemates have been savvy communicators, and it has been a pleasure using the app to explore new housemates! I feel grateful for the verification process, and it’s worth the investment to get verified. I also noticed an increase in the number of people who reach out to you afterwards, which means it probably helps your visibility in the app as well. The only flaw is that I think the app initially offered a map list view of all renting opportunities but it disappeared from the interface after my first day (Or I have not been able to find it again, at least)
  • Where did map view go?!

    By Abe.the.babe
    Why did y’all remove the feature to view on map instead of list???? I’m trying to search on the map but it’s gone.
  • Waste

    By Honey tropic
    It was a waste of time and money. They make more money the longer you stay on the app. After all the money I spent boosting my ad on Roomi, I still ended up just finding someone to fill my available room on Craigslist.
  • DO NOT EVER USE THIS APP

  • Roomi is Safe

    By JJ Monsalve
    Although the app has some flaws for those who have a short amount of time to find a place, less than a week or so, this is a legit business. I saw multiple places found via this app while I was moving into NYC, with high competition and price volatility one could assume the value of the app. It possesses verification evaluations which will help you stir away from scammers. You can also book the rooms from within the app itself, which eliminates the need of having to visit the room beforehand. Do keep an eye out for actually booking if you haven’t read the terms and conditions of the renter.

    I don't know if the ads are real people or if the accounts are old. I feel I was catfished to spend money on a service or two,like it would matter but it did not.

    They have a nice looking app but these annoying pop-up messages about notifications are killing me. Every click there is a pop-up message.

    By clpru
    It hasn’t worked for me so far. It’s probably a good service for young people. I don’t think it’s a good app for mature adults because if you say you’re wanting a business professional and quiet atmosphere. There is no respond for roommates. You have to pay for background check and to register your ID. The app keeps asking for you to upgrade to a better listing and that’s more money. In a day in my seat five or six people on the app.
  • Stupid

    By jskfibrbsirn
    This app seemed like it covered all the basics but when you go to chose a city, it doesn’t let you specify the state. There are multiple cities called Portland but not in the state I need them in and it is a pain searching to see if they are in the right place or not. You should be able to specify the state you are looking for/ posting a listing for.
  • Doesn’t work

    I was unable to make a listing because the location doesn’t work in the app.

    Cool concept but not available in a few major cities, including San Francisco.
  • Can’t even have all states involved

    I requested for Hartford CT to be added and you guys kept saying you don’t recognize the city... poor app waste of time downloading don’t do it! Only has like 10 cities to choose from.
  • Integrity

    1
    By TheLabDude
    How can you be honest and have integrity if you’re not gonna be able to tell someone exactly what town you’re in when it’s not available it seems to me 40 miles from another major town someone would want to know for traveling purposes to and from work so I don’t understand why they don’t offer locations where they’re able to take your payment for a background check I’m not truly display your location as part of the process. Seems to me like they take $25 from you before you could establish where you live does not seem fair
  • So far so good!

  • Worst customer service

    By Instagrow2018
    Downloaded The app, I started to use it and wanted to chat with other persons but asked to verify my identity.as a foreign person I have a foreign ID and I tried to upload it about 10 times, every single time the ID was denied.it's been in the month.I tried to reach the customer service but no one answered me until now, I wrote five times.

  • Can I re-write my resend?

    By Need a roommate asap ok?!
    I’ve yet to find a roommate but! I did want to say that in my experience of writing to multiple people, I’ve been quite annoyed with this simple flaw in the app. When you message someone remember that that’s ALL you have a chance to write because they give them three days to respond. After those three days pass and you want to perhaps reach out to them again, it automatically “resends” what you’d already written. Doesn’t give you a fair chance of perhaps fixing a mistake that you might’ve selected incorrectly in the past or yknow... describe yourself in a better way than the first time around. It’s been really irritating and has made it harder for me to find a roommate I think.
  • Found a room in NYC!

  • Great service, safe service, needs to get more listings!

    By Benjamin Mandel
    I able to find a sublet with in 4 days of using the app. Everyone is verified as actual humans with real listings for sublets which is invaluable. People were fairly responsive and everything was as advertised. The experience compared to craigslist is a dream. Only complaint is that there were very few listings in Manhattan. Brooklyn was well saturated though.

  • Worthless

    By bobiradze
    Piece of garbage. No one ever replys and the ones who reply are idiots who has tons of rules. If im renting a private room, i have a right to stay in my room as long as i want. What does it mean: you have to leave home during the day every day cuz some idiot works from home? I dont give a duck if he works from home or not. Got myself 1 bedroom apartment for the price of 1 private room in Craigslist. Craigslist is still the best. Roomi if i could give 0 star i would give. You asked to verify myself, my background check to which i spent money. Thats how they make money I guess.

    Looks Ok from the first page then, useless. Nearest place is 14 hours by train. Build a better backend and database before releasing.
  • I love this app, wish they did push notifications

    By iMsBianca
    This app is almost perfect, all it needs is the notifications (banners, badge app) and it will get 5 stars. Found a lot of potential roommates with this app!
  • Great concept but

    By iamnotwriter
    They did very good job but I don’t understand having this much good quality App with so many small errors that any developer can understand and they haven’t changed those; seems like someone is not doing their job right. UI 8/10 App 5/10
  • Horrible

    They need to fix the ID upload . It does not work I have tired a number of different photos and still nothing work. It was a waste of time to download !!!!
  • So much lag

    I can never tell if my messages have gone through which has cost me apartments as well as the opportunity to rent out my apartments. It’s a terrible app.
  • Too many bugs

    Freezes all the time. Sends duplicate notifications. Needs to be fixed.
  • Ok

    By SwaggDaddyMo
    I honestly think the app is good and i do kindaaaa enjoy the app. The one thing that pisses me off and rates this a 1 star is because it’s insanely annoying to filter and look for specific boroughs but still have other places thrown in there that are not in the freaking borough you’ve selected which defeats the purpose of a FILTER. There’s no reason I’m putting harlem and getting places in the bronx and Long Island like wth this NEEDS to be fixed asap smh this is why I’m going to navigate to Trulia because it’s straight forward and to the point. I do like this apps format and great background checks on the listers but for this reason I rather deal with Trulia

  • Nonstop notifications

    By thfygnkyngdthfggdgkigfbhudf
    They ask you if they an send you notification every time you read a message, whether or not you say yes. When you are hopping back and forth between a bunch of messages it gets incredibly frustrating
  • App doesn’t work

  • App Lives Up to the Hype

    By nadroj.t
    I’m writing this review from the comfort of my new apartment, that I was able to find via Roomi. The app is incredibly ideal: super clean, easy to use, and displays relevant information. I love how Roomi verifies you via multiple forms of identification. Although I didn’t use it, the “Instant Book” feature, it looks like a really useful tool, especially if you’re in a time pinch. The best part of the experience for me was I spoke to no more than 3 people on Roomi. Met up with the 3rd user. Loved her and the space. Applied, and was moved in within 6 days, right on October 28th. Brilliant.
  • Don’t get your hopes up... make this a last resort

    1
    By Wolf Wynter
    Oversaturated! You can perfectly fit the mold of the type of roommate that someone is looking for and when you message them, they never get back to you. This would frustrate me in the beginning, but I had to tell myself that the reason is probably because the listers probably get dozens to hundreds of requests. It’s nice to look here, but if I’m ever looking again in the future, this would be my last resort. They say Craigslist is filled with scams (which I believe), but if you can ween them out, you may find something great. I made the mistake of using these new apartments search apps thinking I would find something and was very disappointed. I found a brand new renovated apartment on Craigslist within my first search. My lease is signed and I move in Oct 1st 2018.
  • Fake postings

    Mostly fake postings
  • Needs improvement

    By Sabermoto
    This app doesn’t work for me. There’s no way to indicate which specific regions/towns/neighborhoods that you want to move to. This means a lot when you’re trying to find a place in a big city like the ones this app caters to. You are able to search for housing posts in a specific area but you can’t find roommates that also want to live in a specific area so finding roommates is hard because there are so many to filter through and you don’t know where people are looking at going unless they indicate in their description. You should also be able to make it so that the opposite gender cannot search you or message you...because some men on here apparently think this is a dating app...the thing I did like about the app, though, is the fact that you can indicate 420 friendly, which is helpful and progressive for this type of platform.
  • Good!

    By UrbanStudiesGeek
    I’d love to see more search features, for instance, preferred train/bus lines (like StreetEasy), south-facing windows, and distance from a certain address. Posters should be encouraged to post as many photos as possible and given suggestions on how to best show their place. Additionally, I’ve noticed many postings are inaccurate (it’ll say 2bed/1bath then in the posting the poster writes its a 3bed/1bath, or it’ll say “whole place” but will be for a single bedroom in a shared apartment). Lastly, this app will be great once more people are on it!
  • Very bad customer service

    Trying to get myself verified from a week, they reject it without reason. When I ask, they say they will contact another company that does verification. I get a notification from the app, but when I click, it goes no where.
