This is so cool! I’m just amazed by the creation of this app! Whenever I go on Pinterest, I am always typing in black girl. So
this is very convenient and so smart! I hope this app continues to flourish and succeeds HUGELY!

Will not let me save my profile information!

I love the concept of it and i wanted to try it because I have a Pinterest. I think this is a great opportunity to reach out and
get myself known within the melanin community. However, if I can’t update my profile, i can’t let them know who I am and what
I do. Hopefully this will get fixed or I will

Love love love...buuut

I love the concept! It’s nice to have something for us! Since this is a fairly new app I know there are still a lot of kinks to
fix so here are a few suggestions.

1. The adds are out of control. Every 3sec a new one pops up covering the entire screen.
2. I’m finding it a little difficult to navig

A few things to fix

I’m happy to see a platform just for us. I would like it to feel a bit more organized the amount of ad pop ups is a bit
irritating. I would like to see it progress in a more cleaner layout for the iOS version. Other than that and a few bug fixes.
This app could go very far and I very much would like

I’m a FAN!

I love the app!
However, all these ads are seemingly unnecessary. I hope that with future updates those disappear.

Amazing love this much needed

I love this app wish more knew about it but I will be creating and adding a lot of content to this for people who enjoy to make it
our own and be very saturated with amazing things. I hope the app does get updated as it seems to be a bit out of style compared
to Pinterest I hope we can get our own s

So exciting

I’m so excited to finally have an app for us! I don’t have to type “black girl” “black family” or anything like that
to get posts geared toward me! Grateful

Needs more publicity for more versatility

I’ll say this: I love the app and the concept. I’ve seen tiger reviews about how laggy it is and I haven’t experienced it
since downloading. However I do think that you should give it more publicity. There’s not a lot of people on there and so I do
think that once more people do switch over it would

Needs some work.

I’ve been using the app for a couple days and I agree that it needs some work BUT the app is still new and making progress. Also
let’s get rid of ads.

Thank you!

Love the app, the content, and the space that was created for us. I do feel the app has some technical glitches. However, I am
excited about the app and ready to create some authentic content for an appreciative audience.

Needs more searchable content

I’m thrilled that there is an app just for us so let me start by saying that. However a lot of the “pins” repeat so much
that there’s just not much to find. However I am here for this and will be using the app regardless. I am sure that over time,
the more people that use it and the more bugs that g

Love it

I love this app! Only issue I’m having is the pins are overlapping. That’ll probably be fixed in a future update but a tad
annoying right now. Still loving what it does!

Good app

I love the app! It’s still a little glitchy after update, hard to save pins. It would also be nice to make it easier to repin by
double tapping or something.

Idea is great but bad execution

The ads that pop up every 10 seconds makes it unusable for me because it takes away me even being able to enjoy whats on the app.
I cant click back or search. I love the idea of the app and it would be amazing if it was updated to have the same regular
features of other apps.

Love the idea!!!

The idea is wonder; I often find myself on Pinterest having to type African American before anything like “African American
wedding hairstyles.” An app like this is ideal and so needed! However...she needs some serious work. The app interface is out
dated and there are adds in places that aren’t aes

Great concept, improvable execution

Love the idea of an app where I don’t have to type “black girl” after every search! However, the app needs a few tweaks
before it could replace Pinterest in my phone. Mainly, the app need to be optimized for larger phones (iPhone 10 and up), it feels
like I’m squinting to see the content. It would a

Not bad

The app is nice and easy to use, but there are some issues that need to be fixed. I’ve been trying to edit my profile but it
won’t let me do anything. I tried to add a profile and cover picture with no success. Tried different sizes, tried the size they
suggested and still nothing. Basically I can’t

Downloading Photos

The app is great ! Finally a good search result without seeing anything but black people ( hopefully that doesn't sound racist )
BUT whenever I go to add a photo to my photo album, the app shuts down. I tried restarting the app, resetting my wifi, and my
phone but nothing works. Hopefully there is a

I love it but...

I really love the idea and concept surrounding this but the problem with this is that when i try to view or like something theres
a buffering symbol there for like a minute which is a bit annoying. And I seem to have trouble with something as simple as
changing my display name. It doesn’t save.

I love the app and the concept but there is a glitch when it comes to me making my own profile. It won’t let me change my name
and I’m not sure why.

Cute but needs work

The concept was wonderful but as soon as i downloaded and opened it up it just has this big loading box in the middle. Pops up
every time i exit the app and try to look at a post. It’s still a good app it just needs work.💗
