IRL - Do More Together Positive Reviews
Truly litThe nominations are my fave! And the invites are so cute! I love it! Please keep making more nominations and suggestions!
Update: above is my original review, but after using the app more I am beginning to love it even more. My favorite think about it is that it’s just soooo much better than group chats or texting people individually. It’s really helps so much for just making plans and having that be the focus of the app. If it was just chatting then this would not be the app, because I can’t even send videos in the chat, but that’s not the point of this app. The point is to do things irl which is way better and it’s just so useful!
I had a few invites since creating my review and have just noticed even more how amazing it is. Once you get all your friends out to do something that you want to do through this app you will see what I mean. Also the noms are super fun, but the invites are where it’s at. And like I said before, I wish that the app would have more suggestions, because the suggestions are super useful for when you are board you can find things to do with your friends. It’s just the best I am excited to keep using this app to do things irl.Version: 0.2.2
The issues I had with this app were fixed.I originally had issues with this app because it wouldn't let you see who had "nominated" you without you giving the app access to your location and contacts. That has been fixed, and now no revealing information (except for your birthday and name) is necessary to see any of that. I'm very pleased that the app developers fixed those issues; it makes the app look far less like a sketchy attempt to get people's information. This app actually looks legitimate, and it is far less invasive now than it used to be. I'm impressed at how well the developers actually listened to the concerns of people who didn't like their app and the way it worked.
Their developer responses to other people with concerns have still been questionable, calling people trolls or accusing them of being from a rival company if they disagree with the way the app runs, but the app itself has improved greatly, and my rating reflects that. I hope the app continues to improve. Just tinkering around with the app a bit, this would be a great app for people who want to plan fun things to do with friends they know offline. The app also fosters a healthy sort of outlook about kids not just spending their lives on their phones or with other technology - but instead being able to use technology to facilitate face-to-face encounters..Version: 0.2.2
My only groups app !!!! 💜💜💜😻😻⚡️⚡️⚡️Im one of those people who are hard to get on a new app. Maybe it’s because I’m over the age of 25 and we watched the mania of app life integration from the begin, but... I do have to say I got sold on this one. I’ve been off of social media for over a year now feeling overwhelmed by everyone’s energetic shares about things that mainly didn’t really correlate to important in the NOW happenings. Once I cut off IG and FB I felt so much better energetically and emotionally - but I missed having a platform where I could genuinely engage with my friends. What I like about IRL is that it’s only focus is giving you a digital tool to actually make plans that matter IN REAL LIFE. I know every time I’m opening this app, I’m not just mindlessly scrolling through content. I’m actually doing something valuable for myself and friends! So yes, 4 stars for now. I can tell this app is generally built for a younger audience than mine, but sincerely hope this catches on for all age groups.💜💜💜🌈🌈🌈😻😻😻😻
Technology working towards live social interactionI really love this app for bringing in new ways to get people together. It has all these wonderful suggestions and challenges for activities to go out and do with friends and family. Once you’re connected through your contacts you are able to select an event such as go for a hike and invite as many people as you would like for whatever date to go hiking with you. Has a wonderful array of choices ranging from date night with your significant other to a wonderful brunch with friends. It also has a great way to keep you connected by letting you anonymously nominate people for badges everyday such as chillest beach jam bringer or the Bear Grills of the group. My only critique is that when you search for people in your contacts, if you search with more than two or three letters it no longer lets you select the person. It must be some kind of bug that I hope will be fixed soon. But other than that I love the idea and action behind this app to get more people out there and connected face-to-face and socially interacting with fun activities instead of just staying home alone on the weekends..Version: 1.1
Pretty NeatI haven’t had this app for very long but I think it’s Pretty Neat. Not only is it just designed so very cute, but it’s easy to navigate too. I like how you can only compliment others, however when I want to nom a specific friend who’s not listed in the given options from my contacts it won’t work for me? Unless it’s not supposed to then I don’t know why being able to choose someone yourself is an option? Anyways I think this a cool concept; for some reason it seems like an even better way to be able to make plans then just texting or group chatting; seems cleaner. Like, there’s specific polls you can create so people can vote on things they want for the activities you invite them to which is so handy cause then it’s not 10 people arguing in imessage and now you have to scroll back and forth to see what’s what, instead it’s all right there in ordered votes! There’s a lot more but basically it seems so organized and it’s nice to see the developers so interactive in their own creation, I’ve seen so many replies to the reviews and the ability to recommend activities is pretty cool, which I’m totally about to abuse 😂
4/5, easy 😃.Version: 1.1
Being cautious about spamUpdate: ok the app doesn’t mass invite your contacts anymore 👍. That’s a good sign. The app and the idea of taking peoples eyes off of the screen and actually spend time with friends is very good. Hopefully it will stick around. Better than a lot of other “social network” apps. Keep up with the good work guys.
First I’d like to say that I understand the concept of the app and I have no problems giving the app permissions. But I’ve seen how you guys wrongly use that permission and just wanted to make sure I’ll not spam everyone in my contacts by giving you guys access to it. So giving you guys access to my contacts will automatically send them an invite or will it let me chose the people I want to be invited? I’ll update my review after the response. Thank you..Version: 0.2.2
Targeted to High Schoolers but I like the + vibe of it allApparently someone thinks I’m an “earthshaker” and that made me feel cool, haha. 😁 Truth is, I am a mom of 3 little ones in my mid/late 20s and I barely downloaded the app to find out about it after someone (I have yet to find out who it is!) nominated me. I thought I could just send in a compliment/nomination to a specific person, but how the app works is it gives you a title and 4 names from your contact list show up for you to choose in multiple choice fashion. It’s a fun “game” to play and wish I could do more those. I like the shuffle and the skip options, so you don’t have to nominate random ppl. We’ll see what my friends will think of all the “noms” I gave out. I like the “positivity” it spreads when you nominate your friends for fun titles. While I think this app is targeting high schoolers, I found it fun and hope it becomes a thing with the youth, as I believe it could create fun connections and an overall “feel-good” friendships. (Not to mention the option to invite friends to do things together, which I have yet to explore!).Version: 0.4
Enabling Contacts= NotificationsI had read some reviews and had thought that by allowing contacts, the app wasn’t going to notify everyone on you contact list. I got the app and enabled contacts, and the next thing I know my uncle called and said he had gotten a notification for this app. I find this really annoying- I think it would be better if the app only invited people you wanted to invite.
Update: To clarify, I allowed the app to have access to my contacts, and that’s when it sent a text to my uncle. I find this annoying because even though I let it have access to contacts, that does not mean it should use my contacts to send notifications to whoever it wants so more people find out about the app. Also, I did not think it would send a text to him, as I never invited him individually. Basically, it sent him a text without me knowing for no better reason than I had enabled contacts. Even if it’s a good app, I don’t feel comfortable knowing that it could send a text to anybody I have a contact of without me knowing..Version: 0.3.1
Love This App !🥰I want to first say that this app is amazing and so easy to use people need to download this app! I love how you can easily connect together as a group or just a individual. Being able to put a event on your calendar is also a easy process that you can do within this app. I am able to get my family together to set up a family gathering or event with this app ! This app is so much better than any other app where you can text as a group or text someone individually. I started inviting my family to start using this app and they also loved it, now being able to plan out trips or events is so much more fun ! I personally love this app and can’t wait to invite others to use it too ! You won’t regret downloading this app !☺️.Version: 3.1.15
Talk to people and easily find out who nominated youI haven’t used the app very much but as far as I know there is no way to talk to my friends through the app. I think that feature might make it better. But as I said I’m not sure because I haven’t used the app very much. Maybe you could even message people who nominated you before they Ben reveal themselves to you. Which brings me to my next point. It needs to be easier to find out who nominated you without the other person having to reveal it. Either it should just immediately tell you who nominated you or if you want to know who it was you just have to press a few buttons instead of having to wait for the other person to reveal it if they ever do. It’s killing me not knowing who nominated me and I’ll probably never know. But I really want to know. I NEED TO KNOW!!!!!.Version: 0.5.1
Love how it organizes my groups!The IRL app is an amazing tool to organize all of your group’s communication and calendars. Using phone messaging has been problematic between iOS and droid users ( I noticed this especially between my droid husband and iOS me) getting messages dropped or out of order. This apps gets fir of that. It’s also great for when you want to compartmentalize groups without searching through a million messages. I have a book group, movie group and a sports group. I love how there are suggestions for activities in the area. The calendar is a key feature that sets this apart from other apps. Overall this is amazing for type As to organize group chats snd social calendars..Version: 3.5.2
Love love love!I was initially skeptical of this app as I’ve never used something like this before. However, my friend recommended it to me as we wanted to plan more virtual meet ups with our friends due to Covid. And I just got to say, this app does it all! Not only is it an easy way to gather existing friends together, it is really easy to make new friends!
I love the suggestions that IRL has and there are such a variety of events that I’m sure there is one for everyone. The messaging feature is awesome and being able to connect with my Alma mater is really exciting. Have used the app for 5 days and I’m definitely not going to delete it! Highly recommend especially during these tough times..Version: 3.5
Great track app!The app really works for me, not only does it help me keep track of everything I have to do, but it’s also really easy to deal with. I’ve never had an app with such detail and such an easy interface. Honestly it’s also really cool how you can follow and keep track about your social events with others on the app. Not only can you follow and share with them, you can also chat! It’s a lot like some other apps but has a very different style that’s really appreciated. If you usually can’t get things done and need things done, use this! It’ll be fun and you might even make a new friend or two. I love it!.Version: 2.1.5
Great appI have only had this app for five minutes but I’m already enjoying it. I love sending anonymous messages to my friends and fam using this app. This app is great, but it does have its set backs. It’s first setback is familiarity to other apps. I have had many other apps that have similar features like basically the same content. It would be pretty hard to keep up with the other apps considering it’s basically the same. Another setback is the choosing of “noms”. Contact choice is small with only four options. Many of the other apps have the same feature (four contacts to choose out of). My point is, if you added more contact choices it would be more accurate and more fun considering I have 196 contacts..Version: 1.1
Easy to navigate and AwesomeI usually have to go through the trouble with sending an event or events to several of friends and family. At times I find it rather inconvenient to do this due to the fact that at times there’s a glitch of some sort when clicking on the link. Or the links send you over somewhere else and not to the intended point. With this app is a whole lot easier to send invites to current events and create a plan, so if the notifications are on everyone will be reminded . This is an absolute awesome app for those who love traveling , socializing and experiencing new thing. I totally recommend.Version: 2.0.14
Social media for the active people!When we think about a social media app, we usually come up with the image of younge people and adults stuck on their phones for hours. IRL is different because it is a social media calendar app. IRL actually enourages people to plan, go out and meet together in real life. People can stay active instead of being addicted to the phone. You can sync the contacts from your contact list. It is very easy to use. You can also find events that are happening around the area. The calendar app also has a built in chat feature. I highly recommend this app!.Version: 4.0.2
Just wowWhen I first heard of irl I though it was just a way to start another fight for popularity due to the voting and noms, but it turns out it’s totally different!!!
You can nom your friend anonymous just to compliment them on their awesomeness. Just to make people feel good! It is also such a cute and fun way to plan activities with friends, the animations are so cute! I just had an idea, what if you have a list part, where with the invite you swipe right and you can look up and place little animations of the things you/they need to bring? I just think that would add even more. Thanks so much I love it!😍😍😍😍😍.Version: 0.4.1
Helps Keep Me OrganizedI am very much enjoying the IRL calendar app. I like to stay as organized as possible and using this to coordinate events with family and friends has helped tremendously. I think the app is pretty easy to use and user-friendly. I like that I can also keep updated on events going on near me and add them to my calendar.
The best part about this app for me has been organizing my family’s calendar. I use IRL to coordinate where everyone will be and when.
Overall, I think this is a great app that I will continue to use into the future..Version: 2.1.4
So Far, So GoodThis app is easy to use. It’s a for the most part a calendar app. You can add events, invite friends, make the event private or public, let your friends invite friends or keep it low key. You can sync it to your google calendar, so you can have all of your events in one place. There is an explore page which tells about people you’ve followed and possible events they may be having, following them and hearting an event adds it to your calendar, like a possible suggestion for the day. It helps me stay a little bit more organized..Version: 2.0.14
Very Clean Social AppThe focus of this app is utilizing your contacts and local events to actually become social again... Plan and attend events with your friends and people you have common interests with. And also stay in touch with them in group chats.
As we come out of Covid I believe this will be awesome to check out what’s going on in your area and organize with your friends on who’s going where and when. Actually use social media to interact with each other in real life and not just be hooked on a platform in isolation. 👍🏼👍🏼.Version: 4.0.5
Best for College StudentsThis is So fresh and so clean!. no more struggle trying to plan a gathering or meeting. I found easily chatting, and making plans from my calendar invites on the go. it is Seamlessly integrated so anyone can message friends however they like to communicate. A calendar app with a built in chat is really awesome.
For the college students, This is really good, when I validate my .edu I had access to event discovery only for students where found and share the dopest events happening on or around my campus.
Thank you.Version: 4.0.2
The app I was looking forI came across the IRL app and it is something I have been looking for and never knew existed - an app to integrate social events into my calendar and enjoy those events along with my close friends. I pulled in the schedule of my favorite sports teams into my calendar - now I have everything in one place. Probably a good app to use during the next fantasy football events. It is cool that the app promotes events 'in real life' - something so much necessary to bring people out of cocoons and interact..Version: 4.0.5
Good app for slowly manage my kids scheduleThe UI of the app is very appealing & attractive for any age group. The best use of this app I will have in my family is to use it as a solely calendar app for my kids sports & school activities & I can share the same with my partner or some family member by creating group. This way I don’t need to share my native whole calendar personal details to them. The month calendar with all famous days are very helpful to be up to date with all celebrations around the world..Version: 3.1.14
Sex TraffickingI downloaded the game after I got home from work cause I had a text message that someone ‘nominated’ me and I was curious. Not more than 3 hours later my dad comes to me with a FB post picture of a screenshot of the text message they send you to get you to join, and apparently girls have been going Missing because they use your location and its for sex trafficking. Now I dont know how much of that is true, but its better safe than sorry I only gave it such a high review so people can see this.Version: 1.1
Thankful for this!After reading about this about app online I knew I just had to get it to make scheduling and communicating more simple and I’m so happy I got it! I mainly use this to chat with my friends when our must watch shows are on - more so now because of covid restrictions, and it has been a stay-at-home person saver! Everyone is updated on the events so no one is left behind, it’s really sweet. I’ve also used this for freelance work meetings and might just stick with this for good :).Version: 3.1.14
Too much of invasion of privacyAs much as I understand that in order to know the activity of nearby students from your school, you cant skip that step. I want to be able to see and do stuff without allowing an entrance to my contacts or location. I like the idea, but the fact that more than one person wants to be able to do such things without giving this information, and having it not be resolved, is quite unsettling. Please do ready my review and see my side of the story. If there is a simple non-sketchy reason, then I will satisfied with the app, but until then, I am not quite satisfied..Version: 0.4
Good Idea, Needs ImprovementThis app is a really good concept. However, some things need to be expanded upon, improved, and fixed. The planning of events needs to offer more detail, allowing the addition of a location and time that can be edited at any time. Also, I have consistently dealt with the app crashing whenever I want to reveal a nom. Also, I think this app could use some additional features because now it does very little besides event planning. Advertising would also do this app well as right now very few of my friends use this app..Version: 0.5.1
