  • App won’t load for everyone

    By vanlifeappfail
    I’ve contacted the creator of this app several times explaining that the app doesn’t load for many of us even though we are doing everything correctly. The van life app seems to have their clique and apparently are not interested in fixing the issues (or they may just lack the knowledge to fix the issues) and allow others to enjoy the benefits of this app... surprising considering many of these reviews accused them of taking advantage of the van lifestyle by charging money for free services... it’s too bad these young hipsters driving around in vans are just that...
  • Just Cashing In On Trendy Overlanders

    Maybe there will be good content on here one day, but they are not taking my money in the mean time. These apps are destined to fail. I will never add my good spots, because there will be 10000 people using the spot the following week ruining it for the future. Save your rmoney for gas.
  • Disappointed

    By outtoseetheworld
    I was so stoked about this app and it had so much potential had they done it properly. Driving into it the only way you can use the app is if you sign in with Instagram. I was okay with that, but it gets annoying that you have to login every time. I don’t love that you have to pay “premium” to use anything on the app. Doesn’t really fit the mindset of the audience using the app. Everything is blocked off and is pretty useless if you don’t have a subscription. I’ve downloaded the app 5 times now and giving it a new shot hoping for dramatic changes. Nothing changed. There is no depth to the app it’s just four pages and usually there’s only 1-2 other user near you so no one really uses it. I think I’m done with it unless it changes. It’s really disappointing to see an app made to bring together the vanlife community and gatherings be centered around the specks of your van and monetizing the resources.
  • Don’t suggest using this app

    By Helvitis
    If you value your privacy I don’t suggest using this app as long as they require an Instagram login, Facebook is notorious for abusing your privacy and Facebook owns Instagram
  • No feedback on help with app

    By brod1230
    I have contacted your team a few times and I have not been able to get help. I would like some assistance on why it says regardless of location that the options I’m looking for aren’t available. I’ve tried this in an area that I know for sure has access to bathrooms, water, WiFi etc and it says nothing is available.
  • This app has issues

    By Latim
    First it’s way too intrusive... too much info is required to be shared... second it comes across as if it’s way more interested in making money from vanlifers rather than helping vanlifers... this a true disappointment... I am removing it from my phone
  • App does not work. Can not connect to Instagram.

    By jlaprad
    I’ve downloaded and deleted this app 5 times. Each time it would give me an error message, telling me to email the support team. I can not connect my IG with this app rich means I can’t use it. fix the app please
  • Disappointing...

    By quickslivervan
    I like many others don’t see the functionality of this app. Tried to use this on a recent trip. Provided no, nada, zero information in most of the areas we traveled to. Some of which included Moab, St George, Sedona. Such a disappointment given all the instagram hype.
  • I was excited

    By Jasontojasonyo
    The app was too expensive, had an auto-billing after 14 days for the “free” version. To top it off, the app froze with the first button I pressed
  • Underwhelming

    By just_peachy
    I was really not happy that I had to connect the app to my Instagram account, and also not happy that I had to fill out profile questions after that in order to proceed. Then I discovered that some features of the app are only available with the premium subscription. I’m already being nickel and dimed for other services and app subscriptions, so I deleted this app.
