BeReal. Your friends for real. Positive Reviews
Instagram but without the ToxicityLove the whole idea of bereal! It’s so refreshing to see my friends share their not so Instagram-able parts of their days and strip away all of the unrealistic expectations social media has put on us all.
My only constructive criticisms are these: (1) the bugs. I’m sure they’re constantly being worked on and the app has gotten more reliable in the 4 months I’ve had it on my phone. But randomly, I’ll still find I have to restart my phone or delete and reinstall the app for it to work. Not as often as before, but still sometimes. (2) there should be a limit to how late you can post. I love that everyone shoots for that 2 minute window, but I understand that sometimes, you might not have your phone on you at that exact time or you’re really busy and can’t snap the photo. But really often, I’ve seen people (carrying over the mentality from Instagram) wait 7, 8, 9+ hours until they’re at a concert or until they’re with their friends to post - I’m guilty of it too, I’ll admit. I think there should be, in addition to the “on-time 2 minute” winodow, an “hour or two total” late window and after that, no one can post. This would also limit the absurd amount of notifications the app sends out.
Just thoughts! Love it though!.Version: 0.23.3
A new strategy?I saw someone say that the mentality of instagram is coming over where people post late when they have something else planned which kinda ruins the whole “be real moment”…..SO i have an idea that mighttttt help with people posting their real selves (obv if they want to). a points system!!!! i feel like people will be more edgar to post knowing that if they get points if they upload during the 2 mins they’ll more likely post on time. ik not everyone is always on their phone and does try to be real most of time, so maybe like 10 points if they hit it in the 2 mins alert, 5 points if it’s within that 10 mins, 3 points if it within 1 hour, 2 points if it’s within 2 hour, and 1 point if it’s with 3 hour??? i feel like this system doenst seem too bad. it like snap score but instead of constantly snapping, u should keep it real and post when the alert is given. obviously not everyone care about points but this may be a nice strategy to somewhat stop this “instagram” movement.
pls make a new feature that keeps at captions in the memories. i would have funny captions but since they don’t save in the memories, i forget what i had. i wish i can go back and see what i said on that day..Version: 0.24.0
It’s awesome but…I really like this idea for the app the 2 minute timer, the late post, the front and back camera pictures but only 3 problems. 1 is I want them to add a way to post more than just once or twice a day because I got this app to see what people were up to not just to see what they were doing like 6 hours ago. Second thing is the time between the cameras taking a picture. It’s 3 seconds but it would be easier if it was 5 and on the screen it showed a count down instead of saying “smile 3,2,1” it’s not very accurate and making that simple change from that to it actually counting down on your screen would help out a lot. 3rd thing is they need to add a area type of thing like you can pick where you want your discovery feed to be located. Usually it’s all random and you’ll see a post from Italy and then one from Russia like if I’m in texas United States I want to connect with people in my area so maybe that’s a feature they could add but it might be difficult because someone people don’t have their location on in their posts which is fine it’s your privacy do what ever you want with it but I feel like the people who have there location on might want to see other people in their location. Other than those 3 things the app is super fun and nice to just scroll around on..Version: 0.23.3
We Love Being Real!!!!“It’s like an insight to everyone’s life that you didn’t know you needed.”
Peyton and Char are BeReal advocates. We love BeReal. The way that that everyone is truly real is crazy in this fake society. On Instagram, all we see is edited models doing unimaginable things that we regular folk can only wish that we could do. With BeReal, however, everyone is encouraged to BE REAL!!!! Not only do we see people in their true form being lazy, going to concerts, hanging out with friends, or just petting their dog, we also get to see people we normally wouldn’t talk to react to our lives in a positive way. It’s exciting to see everyone’s reaction when the notification is sent out everyone - regardless of who they are - is ecstatic to just be real. The rawness of the app shows what a real human being is. The reality is, we’re not always at the beach looking snatched or at concerts with our friends. It’s reassuring to know you’re not the only person just sitting on your couch all day. NOT ONLY THAT, but there is nothing - I mean nothing - that you can pay for!!!! There is no pressure to get the best version of the app, just a bunch of people posting on the same app at the same time just being real..Version: 0.23.3
Novel, needs work but has great potentialI love the idea of this app. Social media is a joke nowadays because we curate our posts to appeal to certain aesthetics and create a false reality of what our lives actually look like. Apps like instagram feed into mental illness, making you think you’re not doing enough because other people appear to be living these lavish lifestyles when most of us are spending most of our time just chilling and wearing comfy outfits and being “boring”.
This app is great because it rebels against this guise of perfect lifestyles and aesthetics. You get a notification at any random point during the day and you’re encouraged to post within two minutes of receiving the notification. It gives a more realistic perspective of what your friends and acquaintances are actually doing on a daily basis and it feels so much more real. I love the idea of this app. This is where I want to see social media go from here.
There are quite a few bugs that i’ve noticed which is normal for a newer social media app, but it’s nothing that im not willing to work around and wait for new updates to improve the smoothness of the platform, to work out the kinks. Once the app gets a little better in this sense, I would be more than willing to give 5 stars. Other than that, y’all are fighting the just fight. Keep it up..Version: 0.20.2
Not like other social mediaI really enjoy that BeReal keeps the fun part of social media and minimizes the toxic part.
The only constructive criticisms I have: (1) my app frequently glitches and will say I have a phantom notification when there are no new notifications for me to see. Because BeReal doesn’t have a page where you can see a list of your notifications in the app, I have to go through every single photo on my feed to make sure I’ve seen everything, and then I have to go to Settings and temporarily disable Notifications for the app in order to get the one phantom notification to go away. So here I’m recommending that it would be great to fix this glitch, and to create a page on the app that lists your notifications in one centralized place so you can easily see what’s happened since you were last on the app. (2) I do not feel like it’s necessary to get a notification every time a friend posts late. It’s fun to aim for the same 2 minute window of posting, but as an adult, it’s unrealistic, and it’s annoying to be notified every time someone posts late. The only push notification I actually want is just when the BeReal goes live..Version: 0.22.1
Great idea, okay executionI love the idea of this app so much!! My friends recently had me download it, we’ve all gone our separate ways while attending college, so we’re always looking for fun ways to stay connected. I love getting to see the little snippets of their daily lives, since I don’t get to like I used to when we all lived in the same city.
My biggest issue is the bugs. Half the time, I don’t get a notification that it’s time to post, or I get it and it will say “6 minutes ago” for when the notification showed up on my phone, even though it JUST showed up. I miss the window, no big deal, just post it late right? It takes FOREVER for the app to load up the photo option once you click the button, EVEN if I manage to get onto the app within the 2 minute time frame of posting. It’s a lot of clicking, closing out the app, reopening, clicking some more, and waiting and waiting. It’s frustrating to not post “on time” even when I’m opening the app as soon as I get the notification. My friends have shared they have similar issues, and while it’s not enough to make us stop using the app, it does make using it a little frustrating on most days. Fingers crossed more updates will be added soon, as I really do like the concept, just not how buggy it is..Version: 0.22.5
GlitchyI enjoy the concept of the app, but there needs to be a way to allow users to reattempt to upload their photos due to bad service. When I tried to post my photo tonight, it was taking much longer than it should have. After a minute or two, it said that I uploaded the image, but the app kept glitching out. I closed the app to reboot it, and my selfie for today was still there but no longer appeared in my memories. Even though I can see what I posted today on my “My Friends” feed, I am unable to see my friends’ posts and the discover page because the app doesn’t think I posted.
Isn’t there a possibility to save that photo as a draft for that exact moment in the event the app glitches out so we can attempt to post it again? That would keep the spirit of the app within the moment, but it is not our fault if our internet screws us over.
While I’m here, I would also like to ask if it would be possible to add a privacy feature where you can set your images to public while setting your location view to friends only. Thanks for reading..Version: 0.20.1
Fun w/ flawsI was initially attracted to BeReal due to its concept. I liked the idea of straying away from the typical inauthentic social media model of carefully curating every single post in order to create a persona one wishes to project. A rush goes through me every time I get the notification that it's BeReal time — you never know when it's coming and you're never prepared for it, but it certainly encourages you to live your best life because that moment could be any moment. It's also a fun way to look back and keep track of the day-to-day.
That being said, the app does have its flaws — which is to be expected given its novelty. There have been multiple occasions where I'll be notified that it's time to take a picture but upon opening the app, I just see my feed. It's not much later that it's actually BeReal time and I don't get an accurate notification for when it occurs, forcing me to consistently reopen the app throughout the day so I don't post too late. Additionally, despite having strong wi-fi, there have been times where it has taken hours to upload my photo. Despite me taking the photo right on time, because it's uploaded later, it counts as an hours late upload. Lastly, sometimes it takes quite awhile for the camera to successfully load..Version: 0.22.1
Great concept, needs workAbsolutely in love with this concept! it takes the pressure and toxicity off of social media and adds a fun surprise element for when it’s time to post! i love looking through my friends posts, not feeling pressured to look good or edit anything, and not being embarrassed about how many friends i have, likes i get, etc. amazing concept and the app is good how it is…if it would work properly:/ the app is CONSTANTLY glitching!! almost every single time i get the “time to bereal” notification, i click on it and the app opens but doesn’t prompt me to take my picture, it goes to the screen that shows mine and my friends posts from yesterday but doesn’t update to even take the picture in time. i open and close to app multiple times but it still takes forever. by the time it does update and open the camera, the timer is already out and then it takes forever to load and post it so i’m just sitting there waiting for it to go through. again, i love the idea of the app, which is why i put up with the glitches and still use it but it is really annoying and makes for a frustrating experience, considering i rarely get to post on time because i have to close and open the app 15 times for it to even work..Version: 0.22.5
Awesome concept, needs work stillI looove the concept of this app. Something less stressful to post on than Instagram thats just for seeing your friends/family’s faces and lives on the daily. My biggest beef with this app is that it notifies you when people post comments, etc but then I have to search through every post to see where the comments are, and half the time its just someone I don’t know commenting on a friends post, but I can’t choose to not be notified for that specifically. Having a notification screen where I can see all my notifications and click through to the posts they’re on would make everything soooo much better. And please please please include comments with the memories/let us choose to let others see our memories!! Sometimes I post late and then the next day’s B Real is early and I miss what people posted/commented ☹️ I also think the Discovery part kinda ruins the point of this app. Wish I could at least choose to hide it. Thanks for keeping this simple though, I hope it stays that way - I really love it, its the best!!.Version: 0.24.0
No complaints!What’s nice about BeReal is that only your friends that you add/accept requests for can see your BeReal for that day. The notification comes randomly, and you are able to post late. (it marks how late you are, don’t worry about being late it’s not a big deal) The only picture of you that strangers could see is your profile picture. BeReal is awesome, you can’t put filters on or import any photos! Just watch who your friends are, and only accept people that you know. I have not seen any inappropriate BeReals or Realmojis so far. I generally only accept people that I am friends with. It will not notify someone if you delete their follow request. BeReal is not a bad social media app, you get to see people you know “being real” and not just the filtered, airbrushed, and hand selected instagram posts that they spent weeks planning. You get to see them, and what they do normally in their everyday life, not just the highlights that are on instagram. I hope this helped someone that is on the fence with BeReal. Just download it! 😊.Version: 0.23.3
Amazing app, bad performance.I absolutely love this app! The little (non jaded) view that you can share and see into your friends lives is super fun, but at the same time, not nearly as addicting as normal social medias. Once you have posted for the day, you can look at your friends current post and maybe comment or react to them. After that there’s really no reason to stay on the app and end up killing your whole day.
The only reason I am giving this 4 instead of 5 stars, is the fact that not only myself, but all of my friends as well have performance issues. You will get the prompt to post, click on the app and wait for the app to load, sometimes even as long as about 5 minutes. Then when you post, you are automatically late.
8 out of 10 times I experience performance issues. Luckily more lately, they have been that I can launch the app and snap my pic, but then it takes about 2-6mins for your post to actually upload. (The reason I said luckily is because as it is taking an eternity to upload, it has the timestamp of when you took it, so it won’t be automatically considered a late post)..Version: 0.23.1
Great app but buggyI’ve been using BeReal for a little over a month and it has slowly become my favorite social media app. I love the concept, and everyone who I recommend give it a chance also ends up loving it. The only reason I could not give the app 5 stars is because it is still super buggy. I have a permanent notification symbol on the app, it has the little red circle with the number 1 and there is no way to make it go away. Sometimes it goes away by itself, but then comes back randomly. Also, when you are looking for new friends on the app, and you see people who might be in your contacts or have mutuel friends, there is a button to add them, or a button to ex them out. When you ex someone out from the list, they go away, but then randomly reappear? The bugs are not game-breaking but it’s quality of life things that should be fixed given that the app has went pretty main stream. This is the first review I’ve ever given so if anything, I hope this gives some feedback to the developers. Keep it ad-free!!! We love that there is no marketplace. It’s simple, it works, don’t break it PLEASE..Version: 0.24.0
This app is horrible!! absolutely nothing to do..(Btw i only put 5 stars so that it can get at the top and so that people can see this) My friend made me download this app and all I can say it that it’s useless and is inefficient. It makes my phone glitch and has bad errors. All you are able to do is add friends and view their posts. Also, you’re not even able to post more than two photos at a time, which is absolutely ridiculous!!!! This app doesn’t even include any videos for your to post, nor watch… plus, the controls on this app are to utterly confusing… This app isn’t even like any normal app… I mean I don’t usually complain about many apps… but this one just has so many things to complain about. Adding friends is a whole different page on the app which makes it even more confusing. I don’t know what else to say… so that’s all I have for now… thanks for letting me rate your bad app..Version: 0.23.2
“not social media”Overall really like the concept of this app. Social media is a huge waste of time but it’s hard these days to stay connected to friends and family across the country and across the world without it. The fact that this app (tries to) force users to post what they’re doing in the moment also does a great job at eliminating the fake reality of socials.
When my brother was convincing me to get this app, he told me that it’s impossible to scroll forever like I did on IG - the reason I deleted it. And while that’s true on the “my friends” page, one can easily switch over to discover and use it just like any other time sucking social media site to scroll for hours.
I know y’all are working on bugs but an additional feature would be a way to make the discover page optional, so that for those of us who don’t want it, it’s not even on the screen at all (ie there’s no separate discover tab at all) and doesn’t tempt us to waste time on the app. This could be done using a switch in a users profile. If you are really trying to be “not social media” please make the discover feature optional!.Version: 0.22.0
Love this app but who decides when it’s time to BeRealI love this app for all the same reasons everyone else, it’s unique, gives you a chance to be authentic, and if you and your friends have a good sense of humor it’s very fun.
My question is, what dictates when the 2 min timer starts? When I first installed the app, it was around 10am for a few days consecutively which was ok but not ideal since most people are doing the same thing around the same time each day and during the week that’s usually just working. After those few days the time seemed to be more sporadic but the latest was probably around 5pm. Now today, it’s almost 10:30pm and I still haven’t gotten the notification to share.
This isn’t even really a complaint because I think if it was the same time every day, it would be too predictable and easy to kind of curate a post rather than an authentic photo, i’m just curious what’s going on or if there’s any type of pattern to it. And of course I just received the notification rn which I knew would happen.Version: 0.23.3
Great idea, lot of bugsI really enjoy the whole premise of “being real” and simply showing what you’re doing in the exact moment when the timer goes off. However, there’s quite a few bugs that make this difficult if not impossible. On multiple occasions, I will take my BeReal (on time!) and it shows that it’s posted after the timer is done counting down, but if I close out of the app and go back to it a couple hours later or the next day (before the next timer goes off), my post is gone as if i never even posted - so now i have several blank spots in my memories even though i absolutely posted on that day. The app also has the habit of not wanting to load from time to time. I’ll click the notification to post and either the app itself just won’t load in, or it will show me my friends have posted and to click to post my BeReal, no matter how many times i close and reopen the app.
I really do enjoy the app and it’s premise, but these are some debilitating bugs that almost make it pointless to use sometimes..Version: 0.24.0
Could be betterI enjoy the app, like most people have said, the spontaneity is a really unique way to avoid glorified posts or unrealistic updates. Similar to most people, it is frustrating working around the glitches and the bugs. It takes forever to upload pictures even when I hop on immediately. I’ve had my pictures change unexpectedly, I showed my friend a selfie of us, then when I uploaded, that picture was gone and was just a blurry photo of the floor, but I hadn’t clicked to retake. And I don’t like that if you aren’t sitting with the app open for the 5-10 minutes it takes to upload, you are said to have uploaded late.
A final issue I have that is simply personal, I hate when it alerts super late at night. I’m a millennial in a grandmas body, and my geriatric self goes to bed around 8p so I’m always destined to miss out on it if it’s past my bedtime.
Overall, I do enjoy the app. I enjoy sharing with my friends and seeing what they are up to. I think it has a lot of potential. I’ll patiently wait for the creators to iron out some kinks..Version: 0.20.2
Good concept, needs some workIt’s a great concept and I love the idea behind it, however, for it to actually work I think they need to increase the amount of people that their app can handle at one time. Because everyone literally gets the same notification and the same exact time, I think this sometimes causes the app to become overloaded which causes the app to kind of “glitch out.” There have been many MANY times where I get the notif that it’s time, open the app, and nothing happens. Either it just shows my feed from the day before, takes the entire two minutes to open my camera, or even says I haven’t added any friends yet and shows me a blank feed. This is really frustrating to the point where I know several people who have since just stopped using the app because it doesn’t work when they get notified and then they forget to upload a post later on because it doesn’t remind them. This app needs a LOT of work, but I’ll probably continue to use it until the hype dies down..Version: 0.22.5
Great! But…This is a great app and I love posting pictures of myself while also being able to see my friends pictures. The captions are also great! I’m able to write one describing what I’m doing in the picture and what not. But, putting all that aside, there are some issues. First, the uploading. If I’m not in the app while my post is still loading and then it will never upload so I have to wait until I see that it stopped. Another issue for me is the adding, requesting, and just friending in general. I have one friend that can see my posts, comment, react, and he can see my profile in his ‘friends’. Although he can do all of this, I can’t do anything with him. I can see that he reacted or commented on my posts but I cant see him in my ‘friends’ and I cant see his posts. I have tried to add him many times and he has accepted me many time and vise versa. I’m not sure what the problem is? Besides all of that, this is an amazing app! But it has some downsides..Version: 0.24.0
Simple But EffectiveSo I’ve never had any want or need fo all the social media platforms cause I’m worried I’ll get sucked and and feel the need to post all these great photos and videos and tag people and do all that stuff. Not with Be Real. It’s so easy cause you only post one time a day at a certain time so you don’t spend 30 min finding the perfect location and filter and trendy background audio. You just take a photo and it’ll snap a shot of you front and back camera so it shows what you are REALLY doing. And same with your friends. So it’s kinda de stressing cause you can realize people aren’t doing all the amazing things they post elsewhere. And since there’s not 3 million people on it it’s also not toxic or inappropriate at all. I really like the app. It’s simple, but you still get to post and see other peoples post. Just minus the fakeness..Version: 0.22.5
Notifications are nutsUnlike most others, I have no issue with upload speed. My beef is with notifications. “On BeReal, you’re in control of your push notifications,” the settings page states. Barely!! I want to get notifications for comments on my posts only, but toggling “comments” on means I get notified about every comment between my mutuals. Plus, there’s no landing page specifically to contain notifications (realmojis, comments etc). I’ve had the red notification bubble on the app thumbnail for hours now because I can’t for the life of me figure out exactly what I’m being notified about. There’s zero indication of what it could be! And hey, maybe I’m missing something. Maybe there’s a fix for all my problems out there. But if there is, it’s the least intuitive fix in the app store, because it’s impossible to find help within the app!! Please change things so that we can access notifications more easily, personalize them in more detail, and know how to make those changes ourselves..Version: 0.21.0
Really fun!I really enjoy it and the fun dynamic it brings to social media. It’s simple and unique way to connect with friends (especially my long distance pals!). However that being said, there are two major changes that I think could overall improve the experience. Both having to do with the memories feature. First of all, I think memories should be a feature that you can select to be visible on your profile for your friends. Sometimes I want to reminisce on my friends pages, especially if we appeared on each others BeReal. Second, memories should keep comments and RealMojis. Today, I was looking at a comment thread on one of my friends BeReals and thought…I’ll have to screenshot this thread to keep it because the comments don’t save.
That being said, the app is great and enjoy it immensely! I think with a few more adjustments this could very quickly become my favorite form of social media…who am I kidding! It already is!.Version: 0.17.1
Be Real acting up and I can’t even tag people on my be real.I like the app BeReal, it would just be amazing to see more features put on this app and especially ways to tag people on be real.
I like this app, I really do. I just want to see more features put on this app, more effort to make this app better.
I can most likely say I like the app be real, and I am certain lots of others like this app a lot too.
It would be more fun, I am not saying that it isn’t fun because it is, I like be real because when your be real has been on the be real app for over 24 hours you’re not just gonna be able to throw a picture in be real and say something like “hey this is what I’ve been up to”, you have to recreate your be real. You actually show off what your doing it is kinda old school, I’m not an old school person however I can admit that I do know no one wants to spend all day on the phone (especially if they’re a busy person).
I mean honestly you don’t even have to caption a be real unless you really want to say what you’re up to.
The only downfall about the app be real for me is:
1) it’s lagging pretty badly. (I’m not sure if it’s a server issue or an app issue, but it should be addressed.)
2) it’s hard to find people that I know on Be real, this should be addressed in the next update.
3) It doesn’t let you tag people on a be real, I like to tag who I’m with so I would like this updated asap please.
Many things could be changed..Version: 0.23.3
Great app, needs some bug fixesI love this app, but recently it has been having some issues with posting that it needs to fix in order to retain its users. The app was working perfectly for the first month and a half I had it, but there have been a lot of issues in the past week. Maybe there has been a massive influx of users recently that have caused these issues, but it has seriously affected the quality of the app.
For example, recently when I’ve posted, the app is stuck on the “uploading” task and I can only see the posts that people posted the previous day. Today, when I posted it showed me peoples posts from today but when I try to comment or react the posts revert to yesterdays and it says that I need to post a late be real to see the posts. I am not sure why this is happening but it needs to be fixed quickly or these issues will become tiring and prevent me from regularly using the app..Version: 0.20.2
Great idea, CRAZY glitchyI just saw that this app was growing in popularity, so I just wanted to try it out to know how it worked, but it’s been surprisingly charming! I love it now, but I swear, every day it’s another insane glitch. Rn it’s almost strobing my My Friends feed from the blurred out “Can’t see this until you post!” and remembering that I already posted. It takes forever to get to the posting page when the alert comes every time instead of showing up immediately, cutting down the amount of time you have to post yours in time, but you also really can’t post in time almost ever because it takes minutes to upload your post. But being able to see what your friends and family are all doing at the exact same moment in the day has been so endearing and just way more interesting than I thought it would be. I’ll keep doing it, but idk if I can keep recommending it to friends bc of how embarrassing the glitching is. Really makes it annoying to use..Version: 0.20.1
Thank you.My cousin has recently told me about this app and I have been putting it off for days. That’s probably my biggest regret in life. I have downloaded the app for less than an hour, maybe even 30 minutes. And let me tell you, this app has already changed me. Mentally and physically. It helped me get over my ex, it helped me lose weight, I can even look my brother in the eyes again (we had a pretty big fight). This app makes me, me. So thank you. You are probably wondering why I didn’t give you 5 stars though. You can post anything you want on here. That is not okay. My cousin Lyla is 13 soon to be 14 years old. What if she saw nudes, alc, weed, etc? What would you do than? Please make a update where people supervise what people post. It is needed, not just for lyla, but many other kids out there. This app is a disgrace and horrible. It is why America is the way it is. But thank you, for truly inspiring me, Lauryn Ann Isabella..Version: 0.20.2
Needs a few improvementsGreat idea, fair execution... the main problems are upload speed, setting captions, posting comments, and sending reactions... basically the whole functionality of the app!
It's understandable when you have everyone logging onto the app at the same exact time, but photos take a while to upload even with good internet speed. Reactions sometimes just don't go through, or appear to go through but later you look back and your reaction isn't present on someone's post. You can't set a caption when you take a photo, only after it's posted. And often captions will appear to go through but don't, or you'll get a massive error banner when attempting to share one and it may or may not go through anyway. Same goes for comments -- either appears to go through and doesn't, or appears not to go through and may or may not. The error message usually says something like TOO_MANY_TOKENS which is of no help to a user.
Also a major privacy concern is that the app has access to my contacts without explicitly asking for permission. Maybe this is in the terms and conditions and I mistakenly didn't read it, but your users deserve to be explicitly asked and informed of what data you're collecting. I have never let a social media app access my contacts and yet...
So it's a fun idea but seems really bare bones and like a lot of bugs need fixing, and the contact scanning is weird..Version: 0.20.1
EXCELLENT, but needs bug fixesI absolutely love this app. As someone who manages professional accounts on major social media apps where I have to be cognizant of an online image to maintain a business, this is the only app where I feel like I’m really EXCLUSIVELY connecting with friends and fam. Absolutely a breath of fresh air, highly recommend that you get on this app.
That being said, the popularity has outpaced the fine tuning of development. There are bugs as far as when you get notifications to post, as well as an abundance of notifications about when other people post (which I wish I only got the one that tells ME to post). In addition, I really wish I could tag friends.
Beyond that, the dev’s have pinpointed a very necessary corner of social media that revolves around genuine spontaneous life and real connection. I’m excited to see what comes next..Version: 0.22.4
Love it!I really enjoy that BeReal keeps the fun
part of social media and minimizes the
The only constructive criticisms I have: (1)
my app frequently glitches and will say I
have a phantom notification when there
are no new notifications for me to see.
Because BeReal doesn't have a page
where you can see a list of your
notifications in the app, I have to go
through every single photo on my feed to
make sure I've seen everything, and then I
have to go to Settings and temporarily
disable Notifications for the app in order to
get the one phantom notification to go
away. So here I'm recommending that it
would be great to fix this glitch, and to
create a page on the app that lists your
notifications in one centralized place so
you can easily see what's happened since
you were last on the app. (2) I do not feel
like it's necessary to get a notification
every time a friend posts late. It's fun to
aim for the same 2 minute window of
posting, but it's annoying to be notified every time someone posts late. The only push
notification I actually want is just when the
BeReal goes live. (3) For some reason It won’t let me save a new profile picture which is very frustrating.
Overall I love this app but I think it has a long way to go to get better..Version: 0.23.0
Something to look forward too!I just want to say that I love this app! I love that you can’t see how many friends that other people have. For me, I obsess over silly things like that on other platforms, but this app has helped me to stop caring about those little things. I like that everyone can only post once a day, it keeps you from endlessly scrolling and wasting sooo much time. I like that there are no adds/promotions/“premium account” offers. Social media was so much better back when it wasn’t about making money or praying on the insecurities of others. This app feels like simpler times! I love the concept! Of course there are some bugs that need to be fixed, but overall I love it!
If I could suggest something, it would be fun if you could do live photos or boomerangs. That would be awesome..Version: 0.22.4
LITERALLY LOVE THIS APPThis is by far the BEST social media app out there because of how REAL it is. Every day at a random time, different each day, you will get an alert on your phone to take your BeReal. So it shows your front and back camera, if your late to posting it, it tells people that as well as how many retakes you took. You friend people you do or do not know and they will react at the bottom of your photo with a picture of themself. It’s kind of like a mix of Snapchat and Instagram but better because you can go back and look at all your BeReals even ones from months ago. And unlike Instagram people won’t only see you when your doing something fun and exciting they also see the real side of your life when their just laying in bed. Download this app like right now if you haven’t already!.Version: 0.23.3
YeaaaaI basically forced a ton of my friends onto this app and it has only grown from there. I love the concept cause it’s simple but it’s executed so well cause I feel like it is the replacement from snapchat that I needed. I never was a huge fan of snapchat but I did enjoy that it was one of those social media apps where you only really added people you are closest with or actually friends with. This is definitely that. I feel like it also just provides opportunities to keep engaged with people you might normally be engaged with since everyone gets the notification and it’s this big thing. Sometimes I’ll be in groups with my friends and one of us notices it’s time for the bereal and we all spend a good minute trying to take random photos for each of our posts. I like it..Version: 0.20.1
Super fun but lots of problemI love the concept of the app. it’s a more private version of like snapchat in my opinion. It’s really fun and youre only on it for a couple minutes so you see what others are doing and you can react and then move on with your day. I love the simplicity of it. You get to see what others are doing with their life without having to compare anything or stir drama. My biggest problem with the app is that there’s many glitches. Today the app made us redo the bereal. (meaning it didnt save and we had to do it again) and it often times forgets to alert us when to do it. For me I don’t see everyones on time. This one persons bereal shows a day late(it’ll say x posted 27 hours ago or something instead of the recent one they posted). So there’s many problems with is but otherwise it’s a good fun app to stay in touch with people in your lives and it’s funny to see what everyone is doing at the exact moment..Version: 0.22.1
One of my fav apps! (despite it always glitching!)This app is what I wish all social media was. When I got Instagram I wanted it to be a way to keep up with my friends’ lives, but it’s so inauthentic that it defeats the purpose (at least my purpose for having it). BeReal is a breath of fresh virtual air haha. I love how this app creates a space to be your normal, maybe even boring self, and that’s not just ok but encouraged!! it’s the best, I recommend it to all my friends
My only complaint is this app is ALWAYS and I mean ALWAYS glitching. It won’t let me post my captions. I can’t react to people, my comments disappear, or it won’t upload by BeReal for hours. Please fix the glitches because it makes me late when I try to take it on time!!! But overall it’s wonderful, there’s just always technical issues.Version: 0.24.0
I don’t usually write reviewsHonestly, this is one of the first apps I’ve ever written a review for. I don’t tend to waste my time doing stuff like this, but I will for this app because I genuinely think it is one of my favorite apps I’ve ever used. Allowing to connect and, like the name, stay “real” with what you post really makes it feel more genuine and authentic. With the random time of the day you have to post, it allows a real look into the lives of your friends, whether close or far. I have friends from different countries, so being able to see what they are doing without having to hold daily conversations is amazing to me. Genuinely recommend this app, amazing concept and great execution. If you like social media without all the addiction to fame and clout, this is the app for you!!.Version: 0.22.1
Great concept, poor executionI think the idea of BeReal is really cool. It’s not a social media app that you can waste time on, but it still connects you with loved ones and promotes transparency in a world that is increasingly dishonest. My problem though is the actual app. I frequently get my BeReal notification for the day, but when I go to open the app, it appears to not have loaded and there’s no prompt for me to post. After closing in and out of the app several times, sometimes it will load and then I’ll only have 30 seconds left of the original two minutes to post. Or, I take a picture, and it loads for so long that it ends up showing up as “late.” This isn’t an internet issue, as this has happened in multiple settings. Seems like a bug to me. Disappointing as the app really only has one main function so when that main function doesn’t work correctly it’s kind of a flop..Version: 0.22.2
It’s great but has some flawsBereal is an overall really enjoyable app where me and my friends love waiting and posting ours. There’s a few bugs though that have been putting me off. First one is after I comment things, it will tell me it couldn’t post due to em error that does not occur and still posts it. Nothing too annoying just something to work on. Second, is that it takes quite a while to post, sometimes taking over 30 mins. This was also not the biggest deal, just weird when everything is instant now. Lastly, it will tell me I haven’t posted when I just did, not allowing me to see my friends posts. This will go back and forth for a while saying i posted and then it “corrects” itself saying I haven’t posted. These are the only ones i’ve had problems with, and would like to see something done about them. Thank you so much BeReal team for working hard on this..Version: 0.20.1
Love the app! Just had a few ideas for improvementThe app is great and I haven’t had any problems so far, but I do have some suggestions. I think that all of your past BeReal posts should be on your profile. That way people can see like, a timeline of your life yk? If this does become a feature, I also think it should be optional for each photo so that if you want to keep one in your memories but don’t want everyone to be able to see it on your profile forever, you have the option to do so. I also think you should be able to post whenever you’d like, along with the Random timed post. then people could share fun things they’re doing whenever. definitely keep it so you can only take photos in the app though! Love this app❤️!.Version: 0.23.3
Awesome!My friends recommended this app and I have to say it’s pretty fun. Everyone has to post at the same time whatever they’re doing. It basically showed me that for most of the time we are all very boring lol. I like how it isn’t toxic like Instagram where we think our friends are doing something cool everyday. I also like how we can comment on each other’s posts because it makes it feel more personal. The only thing I don’t like about it is that we only get 2 minutes to post something otherwise it’s late. Sometimes I’ll be in the shower or driving and it comes on and I won’t be able to post in time. I guess that’s the point of the app but it can be stressful sometimes. Overall a very spontaneous app that I’ll be using for some time!.Version: 0.22.4
Fun concept, but needs some work.I like that bereal allows users to post updates in real-time! Keeps updates between friends organic! That said, it would be great to also look back on friends’ posts from at least a day ago. Something like a summary that can be reviewed within 24-48 hours after posting.
I find it a little frustrating that I can only view my friends’ photos if I’ve posted my own photo first. I understand that this is an attempt to drive engagement, however, I can only share photos of my wfh setup so many times before it becomes tedious. The ability to just view friends’ photos/updates would be nice. Sometimes I just want to know what they’re up to.
Lastly, the ability to edit RealMojis in the control center rather than on a friends photo would also be very convenient. I find it odd that you can only do so when reacting to a post..Version: 0.22.5
Excellent concept, some issues to work outThis app has an excellent concept. I like that it’s not engineered to keep you stuck on it all day. The “real” part of it is great because it made me see with my own eyes how everyone else’s life is just as mundane as mine (also how much time we as a society waste driving around).
The bad part is that if BeReal wants to be taken seriously with the big players they need to work out the server overload issue. When you have millions of people all loading the app all at once it fails to update. This plays out when you get THE notification telling you to BeReal but when you tap in, you’re unable to post - often times several minutes after the BeReal window has passed. It’s not just me this happens to - everyone I know who has the app complains about this.
Time for BeReal to join the big leagues and figure out these issues..Version: 0.23.0
Love the concept but VERY glitchyI love the concept of this app and my friends and I all think that it is a lot of fun and neat to see what everyone is doing at one random point of time.
However, there are some major glitching problems with the app. I understand that basically everyone with the app is opening the app at the exact same time, but some updates need to be done in order to account for this. Because everyone is on the app at the same time, BeReal posts don’t load, take 20+ minutes to upload, constantly deleting and reposting posts because it’s so overloaded. Updates need to be made to the app to support the large number of people that are actively on the app at one moment in time. Especially now that the app is growing in popularity.
Other than that, I love the app and look forward to these bugs being sorted out so the app is even better!.Version: 0.20.2
I am now realBefore I downloaded this app. I always new something felt wrong. Something wasn’t right. And that was because I was fake. The matter that made up my skeleton, my skin, my flesh, all fake. Everything changed once an app by the name “BeReal” was published to the App Store. I downloaded the app and noticed something was different, something changed, I was startled at first by this phenomenon, but then I stared enjoying the feeling. I asked my doctor what might have changed that made me feel so complete, he said I was diagnosed with “Realism”. “What does this mean doctor?” I said nervously. “Oh no need to be worried little young-ling, it means unlike myself and 99.97% of the population you are intact real. The rest of us are fake.” The doctor explains. “Oh… this is, rather pleasing news doctor, how should I a proxy this situation?” I say delighted. “A celebration is needed for this matter!” The doctor says excited. “Does cake fancy your interest?” I ask. “Why that would be rather splending little boy, let us gobble down that cake!” I slice the cake and hand the doctor a slice. Minutes later the doctor collapses and dies. I panick at why he fell and call another doctor for help. another doctor enters the room and asks what the situation is. I inform the doctor of what happened. The doctor screams at me telling me that the doctor on the floor is a diabetic and the cake overloaded his blood sugar killing the man. The. Police arrive at the scene and I start getting interrogated. “I didn’t do it I swear!” I exclaim. The police don’t care and I get sent to jail. I’m still in jail as of writing this, but the moral of the story is that I’m still real as ever and downloaded this app will make you real too! :).Version: 0.22.5
Good but racially motivated and a bit savageThis app is actually good and funny! It’s a good gen Z version of snapchat and it’s really genuine. Although, this app may give you some comments about your face. Like : why are you in your bed at 4pm or open your eyes (im asian 🥲). But other than that, good app!.Version: 0.17.0

Nice Concept, Needs Work, MANY HIPPA Violations!!It’s a good idea for an app, very simple but effective design, and it’s just nice to see what your friends are up to. There are some bugs, the main of being the poor load times and the fact that half of the time I take my photo and the app deletes it instead of posting it. Another thing that I think should be added is a feature that either a) blurs out screens, b) can recognize when there is classified information in a photo and either warns the poster or doesn’t let them post the photo, or c) provides an effective way to report photos posted of peoples private information. The amount of posts I have seen from nurses posting patient’s information is astounding and frankly dangerous. Hopefully users can be more responsible..Version: 0.23.3
