LetGo is a marketplace app where people buy and sell used items. You will find new things on there as well, depending on what you’re buying. The main focus is on exchanging old items. This was developed to bring thrift shopping to people through an app.
Everyday is a garage sale for Letgo users. The app operates the same way as Amazon or Lazada. You browse through categorized merchandise and add whatever you like to a list. The range of items is a bit broader on LetGo. You can find cars, jewellery, and even services and odd jobs.
There doesn’t seem to be a limit to how many listings you can post. The interface is neat and organized, but that’s mandatory for a shopping app. In this regard, Letgo follows Amazon standards as their layouts are very much alike. There’s also a chat feature that allows you to interact with the sellers.
Letgo uses your location as the centre of interests. It recommends you current deals based on your area. The first thing you should do is give location access for a better experience. You can extend your search by adjusting the mile radius. As of now, Letgo seems to be available only in North America.
Soft on your device’s resources
This app is free to use but contains some ads. There are features you can buy like Super Boost, which makes your item a hot deal. It brings more viewers to your listing hence increases the chances of selling. The problem with this is that without the boost, your item will seldom make it to the eyes of active buyers.
The app comes in a small size (less than 100MB). It uses very little data and memory, so you’ll be okay with long shopping sessions. You can also run it on low battery, though only on Android 9.0 and later.
Once in a while you’d find some interface bugs. The link buttons sometimes take you to a different page. On rare occasions, the entire app would shut down, causing you to lose your progress.
One could find pretty much anything on Letgo. Some of which you won’t even see on Amazon. If you’re a savvy shopper, you will find this app a perfect choice. For sellers, it would be a tough road if your goal is to make money. For items that aren’t sold in a couple of days, those listings are taken down, and sellers will have to repost a listing.
The biggest issue with the app is its poor mediation services. They help you close deals, but won’t step in to resolve problems. Make sure you find great details about the seller/buyer before sending your stuff and money.
