Bring back the “kid friendly” filter 3/5
This app Was much more useful to me when that option was included, even though it was the very last one on the page. Many people are looking for family events and I’m not sure why it was eliminated. Otherwise I loved this app.
Fix needed! 1/5
9.0 crashes on open - completely unusable
It's okay. A great idea!! But it ALWAYS CRASHES.
Reinstall it all you want it will keep crashing. 😓
Invasion of privacy 1/5
By James Bee
Facebook sends my friends push notifications about events I’m interested in which is a total invasion of my privacy. There are no setting options for the sharing of this I can find. It’s disgusting and makes my life way more public than I I am comfortable with
Shocker. Facebook App Events Stop Working After Local Launch 1/5
Shocker. Facebook App Events Stop Working After “Local” Launch. But events show up and work perfectly on their brand new “Local” app they’re trying to replace their failed “Events” app with.
Needs some work. 3/5
I really like the concept of this app. I’m notified when my friends and family will be going to an event that they are interested in. It even gives me notification to these events but I have only one option and that is to say I’m interested. I would like to click on it to SEE if I too would be interested. They need to have hyperlinks for more info other than saying your friends or family are interested. If you could fix this I would give you a five star rating.
Love it 5/5
By button and halley
It’s the best app ever wow 😍😘😋😛🤩😎😜😝🤣😀😃🤯
Prior to being Facebook Local, the Events app would bleed over to my apple calendar application. However it no longer does and realized when I started to miss appointments via Facebook. Please update this and then I can finally give it a better rating.
Support iPad 1/5
By Alven Riakio
Do make it run on iPad.
Like the idea but no additional benefit 3/5
I love the idea of the app, however I don’t get reminders fir any saved events! This makes the app not useful for me but just a separation of events section without any additional benefit.
Horrible calendar integration. 1/5
So FB wants to read from my calendar but not write to it? No FB, I’m not going to use YOUR app to manage or read my other calendars. I want you to write events that I’ve accepted or said “maybe” to my calendar app. I have no intention of ever opening this app EXCEPT to manage FB events. But it’s pointless when I can do that from the FB app itself. Other apps can write to my iOS calendar. I don’t know why FB won’t except for as a big middle finger to Apple and its users. Well, right back at you FB.
Useful for event discovery 5/5
I find this app extremely useful for discovering local events and concerts. Not sure what it has that the main app doesn't, but I like the no distraction interface
An events app that can’t add to calendar?! 1/5
Doesn’t give me any way to add an event I sign up for to my calendar, so I have to enter the information manually myself. You’ve got to be kidding me.
Too much inaccurate info 1/5
By Starbucks Mouse
I opened this up and found more than half of the listings to be places out of business. There was was no way of reporting this. I’m guessing they just pull business info from Facebook pages that haven’t been updated in YEARS! It renders this app totally useless. It’s a definite delete!
Hot garbage 1/5
This app is like yelp circa 2008. In other words, it gives you whatever it feels like. A quick restaurant search showed like 30 that were closed and several places that aren't even restaurants. It looks like it's fed off of old google searches.
Great App, Though It Has A Flaw 4/5
I am glad that Facebook recommended that I download the local app. It is very useful. Though it does have a flaw. Some of the places that it is listed and are suggested have gone out of business. Certainly an update is needed to correct it and remove it from the app. Other than that, it is a great app.
Great idea, wrong information given to customers 2/5
This app is a great idea especially for small businesses to get exposure in their areas. Although, one of the businesses I support shows a 1.3 star rating, although on their Facebook page it’s a 5 star rated establishment by their customers. This can deter people from going to the business and can cause a lot of confusion.
Does not delete locations that have been out of business for years 3/5
I probably would have use this app if I hadn’t seen so many locations that have been out of business for years. It tells you that it’s going to be open at 10 o’clock today when it was closed a decade ago. They should be more accurate in their local locations one or two weeks would be forgiving but not restaurants or been closed for years
By Angel Nunez-Garcia
Give us the ability to filter events by price: Free, Pay per Visit, And ranges in Payment $5-$20, etc.
Polished app but not terribly useful 2/5
Thought the app would have better recommendations considering how much data Facebook has of me and the city I live in. I find other apps like Foursquare, Yelp, or Nextdoor to be better.
This app does not fully open and crashes before it gets past the initial page.
Super helpful for kid activities too! 5/5
Love this. Easy to find find events for my wife and I. Surprised to find how helpful it is to discover events to do with our daughter too
It’s got potential 2/5
Mostly all events are facebook events these days, but the interface has always been buried on mobile. I like what it does so far, and I’m sure it will improve with time.
An app like this begs for an iPad specific interface though. It’s tragic this doesn’t have one. I hope you’ll consider adding one, with support for landscape, drag n drop, and multitasking. This app would be great for creating events on a nice big screen! You could expand support for calendars by adding a month view to help with event planning, etc.
I get that this is probably very useful in a pinch from the phone, but I prefer to plan ahead whenever possible, so it would be nice to do that on a more comfortable screen.
App CRASHES when opening it 5/5
I love this app and use it everyday for all my events!! Seriously wonderful way to keep organized and up to date with new things everyday! Unfortunately at this moment it keeps crashing but I’m excited for the next build so I can go back to using it all the time (:
By She's So Frustrated
App would be great if we could check in to places and actually rate/give them reviews... Otherwise this app seems completely and utterly useless.
It’s about time 5/5
A separate events app is just what I needed. Really helpful, especially when you’re in the arts scene and get invited to every single improv show in town and it clogs the my events page
Not Happy That Calendar Doesn’t Sync 1/5
For years I have seen my Facebook Calendar link with my calendars on my iPhone and now it does not. Very unhappy about this. As a busy executive with children, I need this feature back please!
I also wish while in the app you would see all of your Facebook events and invites at the top of the first app page. Instead, I have to search for events I have committed to or planned.
Calendar view is not useful 3/5
Good app, but I miss the dots on the calendar view. In previous versions, when I was looking at the full month calendar view, the days that had an event had a dot underneath them. It was easy to tell at a glance what days in the month I had an event, and what days for free. Now k have to click on specific days or scroll through the whole month. It's a lot more cumbersome. Please bring the dots back!
Great for discovering events! 5/5
Super useful when searching for nearby events. 10/10!
The events I host don’t show up. 2/5
I had others check but the events my organization created don’t show up. We pay for Facebook to promote these events, so you would think they would show up...
Great idea, poor start 2/5
It’s a great idea to have a Facebook for just local, but it doesn’t have much, and what it does have works only half the time.
Ability to sync to iOS calendar lost 1/5
By Helgi Hundingsbane
You can view your iOS calendars on this app, but you can’t sync Facebook events to the iOS calendar like the Facebook app used to do. ☹️
Also crashes constantly.
iPad support please 3/5
Would like iPad support
I’m terrible at billiards anyhow... 3/5
I searched pool table to try to find a local spot with a pool table. It brought up a place in Logansville Georgia that sold pool tables, and a place in Breaton England that had a free pool table on Wednesday’s. Well, today is Wednesday, but I live in Louisville, Kentucky. So I don’t think I’ll make it before last call.
I really hope that this app helps people to find exciting nightlife that they are looking for nearby. Some suggestions, there are a lot of repeat events for each category, that’s annoying. And then a news feed that is basically just the same as opening Facebook. For the feed, you should make it only people that you follow so you can choose to see who is talking about nightlife events in particular. And if a business has any details in their about section, or makes a post like “free pool tables on Wednesday” then hopefully only the nearby places will pop up. I would be surprised if a single bar in Louisville doesn’t have a single bit of info about a pool table on there pages. Anyway. Keep it up, hopefully this app lives up to its potential. Cheers!
By Rita Grace
Love the app, just please change the ugly app logo.
Why are my search categories shown in Spanish? 3/5
I just downloaded this app and am snooping around but all the categories to search through are all listed in Spanish even though I speak English as a first language. How do I change these to English?
The future is now! 5/5
This app is something I’ve envisioned for years. It’s both a clean and focused interface and an immensely accurate map of real world events. I’m not a fan of Facebook (the website) at all, but this app makes me recognize the value of Facebook (the service) and is a great way to engage with the otherwise overwhelming number of local events in my major city.
I don’t know what to do in the app: poor UI design 2/5
The design makes me confusing
Great start! 4/5
By Erinlin g
This is a fantastic app! I would recommend putting a search radius, though. Not everyone lives in big cities, but have several cities around us. It would be nice to see what’s going on 2-10 hours from me.
Good but needs work 2/5
See the potential in this app however it's no Foursquare yet! The search function is slow to display results. There is no list or favorites feature to refer back to.
My new favorite App 5/5
I️ have been wanting an app like this forever. This has all of the best events and shows me which one of my friends are planning to go too. This has completely changed my nightlife and I️ can’t wait to use it more!
Just one calendar 1/5
By Dharma Rebel
I only want one calendar. Until recently all of the events I was interested in or attending synced with my regular old family sharing iCal. I don’t need a second calendar to check to see if I’m free. I need one calendar that has all my appointments, my kid’s activities, and my Facebook event invites. The only reason I’ve even kept Facebook is for events. If they aren’t on my regular calendar though, I won’t remember to go and will probably end up not only deleting this app, but Facebook as well.
Fantastic app! Found so many wonderful things to do! 5/5
By Mark donkey
Been using this app for almost a year now and I'm loving it. Can't live with out it, please keep up with the great updates. The latest one is especially nice, things are much easier to find now
Not sure what the point of the app is. Remember Facebook, be like WeChat, one app does it all very well, not a defragmented bunch of services. Hard to find a way to leave a review for a business, kind of pointless to have a standalone app for this. Please incorporate this into the Facebook app and make it better. Thank you
Broken a11y 1/5
Broken accessibility support - unusable by iOS screen reader voice over users
Finally! Less clutter in my Facebook 4/5
I can now easily find an event nearby!
No iCal Integration 1/5
I want to see my FB events in iCal, not my iCal calendars in your app.
My favorite way to find what’s going on nearby 5/5
This app has serious chops in helping me find the best way to spend my evenings out with friends. Concerts, festivals, restaurants, and great curated lists to boot. It’s an awesome sidekick for going out!
Name change... 1/5
Deleted app due to name change. Seriously.
Used to be better 3/5
Useful, but the new update makes it harder to search and discover quickly.
