To borrow something on UseMy.xyz, simply download the iOS app and browse the listed items by category, or search the products directly. Lenders can list their product and fee directly on the app, then choose their preferred delivery method (pickup or dropoff). UseMy.xyz is already a huge hit with their neighbors in San Jose, and they plan to expand to even more communities across the country. UseMy.xyz and its founders are already being recognized as a mission-driven company and were even interviewed on The Town Kitchen’s blog.

Their outstanding products have been a hit among endurance athletes and fitness gurus, and the business has been praised by Cycling Weekly, Red Bull, and BikeBiz, among others.
