Putting photos front and centre in a buying and selling app is a perfectly good idea, but there are other flaws here.
Garage Marketplace Review
by on November 9, 2012
If we were to sum up this app – and, y’know, that’s our job – it’s basically eBay meets Instagram. And we don’t just mean Instagram in the sense that it’s based around photos; it has a distinct whiff of the hipster about it too, in the things being sold.
The theory is sound; take some photos of something you want to sell, put a price on it (or let people make you offers), and set some more details – where it is, whether you’ll post it and so on – then put it live. You can tweet and post to Facebook automatically, but buyers need to make offers through the app, not through a browser.
It’s tough to find things, though. You can browse popular items worldwide, and search for specific items and then filter the results locally, but we want browsable categories and the option of just taking a look at what’s available around us. Plus, as always, with relatively few users, choices are limited.
