Developed to connect agricultural investors with farmers in other to increase food production in the country, the Farmcrowdy app is one of those focused apps with segmented relevance.
The version 1.0.8 Farmcrowdy mobile app was last updated on May 2018 and it has received a good number of positive reviews from users on the Google play store and apple app store. It has over 50,000 thousand downloads already and requires Android 4.0.3 and above to install.

On the flipside, users are complaining of the lack of an exit button on the app. For some others, this might not be a major issue because exit buttons are not a common feature with Apps.
I will, however, advise that this feature be added, for a more convenient user interface. other than thas addition, the app is a masterpiece with an excellent user interface, ease of use and easy navigation. It is the type you will love to carry around.
