App Review, LetGo

by David Griffith
I chose to review the app LetGo, which is an app made for regular people to buy and sell their possessions to other LetGo users. It is quite simple to use to not alienate the non-tech savvy. It was designed for all ages to use. The LetGo selling process is quite simple. All you have to do is (using your smartphone camera) take a picture of the item you are trying to sell and add a name and description of your item. LetGo does the rest and posts your item to its servers. Basically, think of LetGo as a mobile Craigslist. When you see an item you want, you message the user your offer, or perhaps any questions you may have, etc. People will do the same when you post an item that catches their eye. I have had only positive experiences using LetGo. Nearly all the users I have talked to and bought from have been incredibly friendly and courteous; most likely because they want you to buy their stuff. I purchased a copy of Pokemon Silver from an employee at West Hills actually through LetGo for a great price. He replied to my messages very quickly and I had an overall good buying experience. Same with when I sold a pair of my shoes. The buyer did not lowball me and came and got the shoes himself. Frankly, I recommend LetGo if you have things you want to let go of. There are plenty of users who are willing to buy your things. Also, if you’re looking for anything from furniture to a car, use LetGo to perhaps get what you want at a much lower price. All on a simple, FREE, app. If you like swap meets, browsing Ebay, garage sales, or Craigslist, download LetGo, you will be pleased with what you may find!
