No longer able to offline use ideabook
Nsxboy1991 on 8/18/2018
This app was great until I no longer am able to use my ideabook offline.
Best turn around ever
sueli ribas on 8/17/2018
I bought a trípode floor lamp. The box come completely destroyed. I called, sent pictures and they not only sent to me a new one but the time was unbelievable fast. What a team. Always going to buy from them.

This app is great, i am in to real estate and staging a property is key to selling a property. This app has given me great ideas for staging my properties and putting the house into perspective before finalizing the finish product.
No longer a good app!
Nafdor on 8/8/2018
After giving rave reviews 3 years ago, I am no longer a fan. The app constantly crashes and I'm using the same device as before. I also detest the way Houzz has replaced some former features. I liked being able to click on an item in a photograph to reveal the buying source. Now, a bunch of useless "similar" items pop up which is infuriating.

I LOVE the app. We plan on building our house in about a yr or so. But some pictures are TOO extravagant.
Updates need better testing before deploying
Nan196098121 on 7/29/2018
The latest update causes the app to render a grey screen when I invoke the app on my iPad. I can no longer view content. Makes the app useless. Development team: This is not the way to retain customers. You need to test your changes before integrating them into the app!
This app has not been working lately.
star 141721 on 7/19/2018
So frustrating since I am in the middle of a new build and the app is useless.
Frustrating
aunt meegie on 7/14/2018
I tried to post a review about a company and houzz won’t post it!- Sketchy!
Use but do not purchase
sjchug on 7/13/2018
I love houzz platform and user experience for design and design ideas. The e-commerce side is badly run and has terrible control over the delivery of products and third party sellers!!! After needing to return a item that required delivery I have dealt with 5 separate customer care groups to organize a return and replacement. Lesson learned - purchasing elsewhere!
Love app -2 Stars only- Here’s why
Halotuc on 7/12/2018
I’m currently building a house and Houzz has been super helpful during this process. However, every 2 or 3 days, the screen goes white and stays that way, until I delete the app and then download it again. It’s super annoying when I’m at a meeting with builders and can’t pull up the information I need. After several attempts at ordering 4 light fixtures through the app, I gave up and bought them from somewhere else. Houzz is such a great resource. I hope this problem gets resolved, because at least in my case, they lost potential business in the retail aspect of their app. Until then I will just keep deleting and re-downloading the app to get to my Ideabooks and their awesome photos, but making my purchases through sites that won’t crash on me.
When it works... it’s great
2dodgyankles on 7/9/2018
Trying to leave this comment reminded me of when I played video games as a kid and just as I was about to beat my younger brother he would jump up and turn the console off so there was no record of the game even occurring. In this case, every time I try to leave a negative comment the app ‘unexpectedly turns off’ I wonder if my brother is working for Houzz, hmmm. Seriously put, this app is great... when it works. Ultimately, too temperamental for me though.
Great app but never loads effectively
Wizwonderland on 7/9/2018
I love all the great design ideas you get with this app, but it takes forever to load all the pics... I usually just give up waiting and close it out. Makes for a frustrating experience...
Awful
Kurt Hinck on 7/7/2018
Only designed to manipulate you into buying products.
Love Houzz but...
long beach laura on 7/6/2018
Love so many features but contractors and designers should be required to answer questions. So frustrating. And paint colors (not not Benjamin Moore guesses/ equivalents should be posted with the picture.
Bring back good pictures
MW19191946 on 6/30/2018
I use Houzz for nice, beautiful ideas that look like show rooms. Letting random people post pictures has tarnished the quality of photos on Houzz. Please bring back the sort by popular pictures button and please only allow for professional, high quality photos and rooms to be shown. With these fixes the app will be back to a 5 star. Thank you.
Slow to download pictures
kimstjohn on 6/30/2018
I hardly ever use this app anymore because the pictures take too long to download and sometimes don’t at all.
What did you do?
sueamh on 6/28/2018
You took a great website app and turned it into a convoluted nightmare to use. I find myself clicking randomly in order to view design ideas. It’s just not good anymore.
What the heck happened?
BekkiM on 6/28/2018
I used to love browsing Houzz for ideas and inspiration. All of a sudden, it’s like somebody swapped in “Terrible Real Estate Photos”. Seriously, I just saw a picture of cleaning products shoved haphazardly under the sink. And another of slot machines in a casino. That’s not inspirational. And what happened to the sort options???
Feed Won’t Refresh
kencarrell on 6/27/2018
Feed won’t refresh. I have to uninstall and reinstall to get the home page to refresh. Incredibly frustrating. App works wonders aside from that.
Terrible service, no longer trust their reviews
AdZoot on 6/26/2018
We were huge fans of Houzz and used them when designing our house but we have since lost all trust and appreciation for Houzz after trying for months to get a negative review posted (about our builder, who currently has a Houzz award showing on their business page) and running into an endless cycle of our review being refused, inquiries to their support system (which is only via their site), trying to talk to someone to find out where we were violating the review policy and getting endless generic answers in response then rewriting it again only to start the cycle all over. We’ve decided at this point they are blocking us from posting a negative review and now we no longer trust any of the reviews on their site. Beware if you are reading stellar reviews about a company on their site you might only be seeing a filtered list of the actual feedback with negative reviews never being successfully posted. I hope this isn’t true and they redeem themselves but after so much time, so many support tickets and even just now getting hung up on twice when calling their only published number, it sure seems international.

Awesome App
VintageGal65 on 6/16/2018
I love this app. That being said.....lately the home page is stuck with the same photos day after day...never changing. So....I delete the app and reinstall it and ......it is updated. This has happened several times. I hope this bug will be fixed because our bathroom remodel is in the near distant future and I need help. Thank you! !!!
Unfair Review Selection
NSDoug on 6/16/2018
Houzz only posts positive reviews submitted by users. This may make them attractive to contractors but is very unfair and dishonest towards customers who use their app. I want true results when selecting a contractor not just results that benefit the company and Houzz. I wrote an honest and thought out review that was not positive and it never showed up. I write both positive and negative reviews as experienced.

Angie is an awesome designer. She is honest, hard working and has made my house into a beautiful home! I recommend her to everyone I know in the greater Sarasota area.
This app does not work at all
Vicky94587 on 6/11/2018
Tried downloading and deleting and this app doesn’t work at all. Is anyone having this problem?
I cannot find the My Room 3D
Annie08501 on 6/9/2018
Can someone please tell me where to find this feature!!!
Mediocre photos now?
Azchick02 on 6/8/2018
I used to be obsessed with this app, but now it seems they’ve started adding novice photos with mediocre design? Maybe some people like it but I used to love the high end photos and design because they were more inspiring, I don’t want to see a photo of a toilet seat that I could have taken myself (truly, this is a photo). Who is regulating this? Very disappointing.
AR
Boojicheese23 on 6/6/2018
I went to use the AR feature and it just put a photo on my screen. iPhone 6s Plus running iOS 11.3
So so
FlibberJabber101 on 6/6/2018
They have cool stuff to look at but none of their design tools are at all useful. And their video of previewing furniture in your room with your phone camera (like augmented reality) is a straight up lie.
Houzz Horrible Customer Service
chamorro on 6/5/2018
Received my order damaged and trying to get a refund is challenging. Houzz doesn’t even use their own app to message back to buyer(me). They use only my email address and with the amount of ad emails they send it gets caught in spam filters quite often. I will probably never see my $300 again. 🤬I’m sure they are good when everything is working but they reveal the real company when things go bad.
Great app but bugged
Mvei on 6/5/2018
I really enjoy shopping on Houzz and it gives me a lot of inspiration. I remove a star because every time I click on see all reviews button, I can’t go back to where I was before. I am stuck there no matter what I do. I have to delete the app and reload it to make it work again. Major pain.
Help!
Dollman2 on 6/4/2018
I use this app very often and I have loved it up until tonight when it just stopped working. When I open the app it acts like it has loaded but the screen is blank. I also can’t access houzz.com. I hope they fix the issue soon.
No longer updates
Empves on 6/2/2018
Loved this app, but now it no longer updates photos on the home screen.
Good technology, Terrible customer service, Not dependable
Camila Santo on 5/30/2018
I already purchased a few items from Houzz in different occasions, and this is my conclusion: don’t risk to pay for a stressful experience by purchasing items that are over a small drawer’s size. I got recently a bookshelf delivered to my home. And only then could realize the assembling parts were simply too big. It barely crossed my front door, and the parts were too bulky and heavy. Problem is I’m currently seven months pregnant, and this type of labor could be dangerous for me and my baby. Their product description is not precise enough. First, providing just the dimensions of the furniture assembled doesn’t tell you how the parts are. Secondly, you might read generic promises like “30 day return” or “full refund” but that only applies to specific cases, that you’ll confirm only when it’s too late for you to cancel the order. So you think there is no risk of not seeing the furniture in person first, but you’re wrong. After the delivery is made, even if you didn’t pay for shipping, they’ll make you pay it back. And not even think you might get an answer if you ask this type of questions upfront. They don’t reply to inquiries. They actually don’t read them, even by email when you have an open case they keep replying with automated templates. In the return process, the customer service totally ignored when I informed the package doesn’t fit any car, and it’s a health risk for a pregnant woman. They sent me a label, which costs half of the price of the furniture, for me to basically figure it out. I can not even buy a better bookshelf because I have this giant elephant hanging on my room. They don’t take responsibility for their mistakes, and not even tried to consider the possibility of a full refund. I ask them to contact the builder and let them know about the problem, but Houzz sent me a link to review them instead. It’s all about links, nothing about a good user experience. Is a perfect example of good technology and terrible awareness about what is a quality customer service. In my condition, this type of app could solve a lot of struggles I have to deal with when going to stores and buying furniture in person. But Houzz don’t really care about their customers, as we’re just a credit card number for them to charge as they find convenient to their own interest.
Vera Nice app

Vero Nice app. Please consider adding a slide show option for the pictures.
Annoying
Kanobbi on 5/28/2018
Its forcing us to update our iphone version
I mean it ok but...
.….………… on 5/28/2018
It’s ok but I wish it was just an actual game not a real thing that has to do with YOUR house.
Bad customer service
Wolfmama0208 on 5/27/2018
I ordered a product from this company & somehow the info they had on the same page was not exactly what I was ordering so when I called them to send it back & hey a refund they had to send my info to a third party. Never called me back and never took care of the issue. If a company can’t take care of your needs themselves and handle issues like mine the way Target or Walmart can I don’t think it’s worth the risk. I’m just thankful I didn’t purchase my final product with them which was more costly.
It’s Beautiful
Vermikno on 5/27/2018
Because I learn a lot. I use everyday. Congratulations to all the people work and informe us at this App. From Puerto Rico
Ideabooks deleted at last update
C York on 5/25/2018
I really love the Houzz app. I've not only saved ideabooks, but used the app for resources for my home. So its extremely disappointing that with the latest update my Ideabooks were deleted and/or seems to be reset. Hope this and the app crashing gets corrected.
Can't log in
Roseofroses on 5/23/2018
Never have had to re-log in to app on iPad but today it's telling me that I have to sign in, but when I do, it tells me that my account is already in use, which it is not. Please fix this bug!
Contractors
Mad as hell in PA on 5/22/2018
I would hope Houzz would research contractor and make sure they provide proof of their work, license and references before letting up add an account. I found a contractor here called Pro Home Renovators out of Levittown, Pa and he was a total scam. Scam me of a lot of money. I reported to Houzz and no one has called me back or respond to my review.
Your app is suddenly crashing
LKBflo on 5/21/2018
When I click on a picture. It just shuts down completely since most recent update! I have loved your app for years now. What happened...
Bad update
Acorn3546 on 5/17/2018
Latest update makes the app unusable. Crashes as soon as I select a photo to view. Tried reinstalling but it still doesn't work. Wish there was a way to go back to previous version.
I loved this app
Dmurph007 on 5/7/2018
Until the bug fixes. Now the app just loads and loads. Kind of like dial up internet. So Ill just wait here . . . Loading . . . Loading x 10 minutes
iPhone Issues
Trepang on 5/6/2018
When you are looking at an article from the Mail application and you go to Houz app it doesn’t track the article that you were reading in Mail. I think your programmer needs to get to work
I couldn’t upload photos
xenopony on 5/6/2018
I received the wrong product and had to type in the order number, i couldn’t copy and paste it, which was super annoying, and then, as part of the return process I was supposed to upload photos of my items, but the ap would have an error when i tried to do that. It was super annoying that when I actually needed the ap to function because i wasted money on a bad order, it wasn’t doing its job.
What happened to this app?
Techgirl50 on 4/30/2018
I used to love this app...but no more. The photos take forever to load, if they load at all. Searches with multiple criteria no longer work. What happened to the downloading of an idea book feature? This was excellent if you needed to show someone pics you’d saved and knew wireless wouldn’t be available. Rather than making a great app better, Houzz has somehow found a way to screw this app up over time. I’ll try it a few more times and if it doesn’t get better the app will be removed from my iPad.
It’s great until it stops working
christinad80 on 4/28/2018
The app is incredibly user friendly and fun to use until my screen goes white, and I’m unable to do anything. Rebooting my phone doesn’t seem to work either. It’s unbelievably annoying.
Love the stunning photographs
Jonathan Tingley on 4/25/2018
Great photography
