How about 0 stars 1/5
The old version was great, this new version is not user friendly at all. It's so cumbersome to search for meetups, tries to be too tailored to my supposed needs and I can't even access the "help" option through the app - such a joke of an improvement. I've downloaded & deleted it out of frustration 4 times now. Stick to their desktop & mobile site.
Worse and worse 1/5
Just when I think this app can't get worse, it does and now the latest design changes are ruining the web site, too
I've tried on both the web site and the app to delete an event for which I am an event host. I follow all of the instructions in the help section but the event isn't canceled and other attempts at changing events won't save.
This is on top of long standing issues like delayed notifications for groups I want notifications from and notifications for groups I've turned off.
I've been using this app for more than 3 years and it gets worse and worse.
Who tests the updates? 1/5
By Tarquin biscuit barrel.
Every update of this app is an abomination. The latest version gives no way to cancel out of a meetup that you are on the wait list for. Who tests these things before they are released?
Also...PLEASE BRING BACK THE CALENDAR!!!!!
List the details of what changes in each update
It used to be good; now it won’t display any events at all. It is so user-unfriendly it’s better to just go to the website. Please developers, go back to the way it was, when you could easily see events in chronological order, and find the inbox. Because this is just trash.
What in the world happened? 1/5
Usually when you do a redesign or refresh it’s for the positive. I believe in this case meetup has taken several steps backwards. It now has horrible design and no way to click on desktop mode because it’s all the same completely trash. It’s hard to find anything, it’s hard to chat and it’s extremely difficult to find the calendar. Please please get your act together and stop removing things that work. Like taking away multiple photo uploads and files for members to access. This should be a one stop shop for all things Meetup.
It didn't work 2/5
I erased while ago but the website has really changed and impacted the way ppl socialize in real life.
Since the update, the layout has become more complicated and difficult to navigate, and events are inexplicably listed in random- NOT chronological-order. Who’s the brain-dead, mouth-breathing moron that thought this was an improvement?
Don’t lose your password 1/5
By Fiddle Fan
You have to start over and build your account all over again. All the links to update password lead to Start Over. Huge time soak. All links to get help require you to log in. If I could log in, I wouldn’t be needing the help! Please fix this.
Awful Performance 1/5
By Molybdenum trioxide
Heavy lag when scrolling and phone is burning hot from too much processing. This app should not be allowed on the app store.
Easily the worst performing app I've used in the past decade.
The Worst 1/5
This is absolutely the worst app on my phone. The old app was so much more user-friendly. I don’t know if they fix this problem, but when you try to search for events or meet ups the search results don’t match with what you search for. Even when I type in the exact name of the meet up other non-related meet ups come up. Please make it the way it used to be. It used to be a really wonderful app.
By Johnathan Galt
I appreciate the ability to love something and then only have to look at loved things.
I also appreciate the your groups only function. Problem is it doesnt work.
When i push the “your groups only” button i get a mystery message . A popup with “lat must be between -90 and 90” what in the hell does this mean? Is the app trying to tell me i need to be on the earth and not above the north pole or below the south out in space?
It is looking less clunky and easier to find stuff. Please keep up this path and more stars will come.
What's happened to this app... 1/5
A year or two ago I moved to a new city and was introduced to this app as a way to meet new people and find activities I enjoyed. It was great. I went to several functions and met awesome people.
This week I moved again, to a new city. I haven't used the app in about a year so o deleted it and reinstalled the app. Nothing but issues. It can't locate me. It won't bring up my city. When it does work (sometimes it randomly works) I can't filter through everything. The "filters" provided don't function well. The app often crashes and just closes out. I mean what happened to the old app...
I love Meetup! 5/5
By Jacqueline M.
Well, I have never had a problem with my app and I'm confused to see people are having so many problems with it. Meetup is such a great way to meet real cool people, highly recommended app, love it!
Echoing everyone else. Meetup is great but the iPad app is awful and it looks terrible. Updates for the design alone is definitely needed.
Won’t let me cancel 1/5
By 2FIT PT
I’ve already cancelled but they keep charging me every single month. NOT HAPPY! And they STILL won’t cancel my account.
let me edit my comments..please. 4/5
cool app! you can't edit/delete comments made on photos in the mobile app...boo👎🏾
Blank screen 1/5
Used to work OK. Crashes on notifications. Now all I see is a white screen and nothing else.
Best Ap 5/5
By Apex Megafauna
I'm a man of few words. Nuff said.
By Please fix65444
I'm not getting notifications. I don’t know why if everything is enabled. It’s so aggravating.
will not let me log on 1/5
can’t even log on. i’ve installed, deleted, re-installed, you name it. thx for nothing :)
Use main thread for UI updates 5/5
By Punit Kulkarni
Crashes on tapping the alert icon. Love the app, fix the crash and get your 5 star rating.
Update: latest fix works. Thanks!
Update: Often data in tables (1st tab in tab bar) updates but the UI doesn’t so when you tap on a cell the cell with updated data is tapped although details I see were old details and its corresponding page opens up. When you press back you can see the updated cell as UI has refreshed. Make sure your UI updates are on the main thread. Also while doing so please make sure table offset doesn't change as that would be very annoying if table scrolled to top on every data update.
Ugly, Clunky App 1/5
Meetup Developers, could you please fix this App. I’m sorry, but it really has an ugly and clunky interface. It doesn’t flow well at all. As well, the icon on my iPad Air 2 with iOS 11.1.1 looks nothing like the Meetup icon you advertise in the update here. There’s also no indication that it’s the Meetup App when I put it in the Doc. The computer version is soooooo much better and organized. This App is too big, in your face, you cannot easily locate things, nor is the Discussion section easy to find. It JUST DOESN’T WORK. PLEASE GIVE IT A COMPLETE overhaul or get rid of it. It’s REALLY, REALLY BAD!!!!!!!!
Convoluted app 1/5
The old app maybe 1-2 years ago was great. Then they redesigned the logo, look and function only for it to be more disjointed in appearance, function and ease of use plummeted.
For instance I would often search by date when looking for something to do. Now it’s buried and I have to keep looking at silly pictures of categories.
Newsflash: you’re not a product you’re a service. And not even, more like a portal. Think craigslist and why it’s so popular. It’s simple and functional. That’s all we want.
Baffling and Unintuitive 1/5
Is this a new iOS game for users? How many taps to find the hidden command? How do you see messages. Calendar is hidden. Chronological listing of event to the point you have to stare at it for while to figure out what's going on? 37 clicks to find an event then app crashes. I remember when this app was at a glance, instead of secret knowledge to give dumb people something to do. Interface is klunky and unintuitive. Each version is worse than the next. Every step a step backwards... no exception here once again.
Great for finding groups of similar interests 5/5
Used app to meet new moms in my area. Had great success. Easy to use.
Awesome way to meet like minded people 5/5
No matter what you're into, there are others that are too. I've met so many different diverse people through this app.
My advice 5/5
If you want to make use of your time go Meetup!
Love Meetup! 5/5
By Cebu Gal
What's there to not like? You can get to choose the group/s to join that interest you. Some group may have a fee in order to join but it could be worth it because you find new people you can hang out with.
The app has lots of bugs. 3/5
The ‘Read more’ link on all events doesn’t work. I get notifications which aren’t there and I don’t get notifications for what I want. My last chat from over two years ago is staying in my notification area. My profile image used to be ok and now it is rotated 90 degrees.
Fix the app 1/5
If the app worked, this would be great. Even if the website worked, this would be great! I can’t RSVP for anything on the app or the site. I can’t send messages or contact anyone about anything. I would love to actually Meetup, but it just simply doesn’t work.
Like meetup. Hate the app 2/5
When I click on a group I want to know more about the app closes on me. It’s happened several times. Also some groups that I’m already a member, when I click to go into the group it shuts down. The app tells me that they put a meetup I signed up to attend in my calendar but when I look in my calendar it’s not there. Very frustrating to try to use this app.
Meetup is great. The app is not. 3/5
I get notifications that I have things to read. I open the app and there is nothing there. Or, I’ll open up those items to read, click on one and it takes me to something different. It’s frustrating. I think it’s a trick to get me to open up the Meetup app giving the appearance that it’s used more than it is.
Most every group has brief information explaining who they are and what they are about. If you want more info, you need to click on the ‘read more’ link, which never works.
I would just delete the app, but it’s required to join events.
Meetup gets 5 stars. The app gets 2.
Use a calendar interface 1/5
It’s very hard to search for activities on this app. It’s not user friendly. Just have a clear calendar and which events I can see each day on groups I follow and then another section for suggested activities.
Wish I didn't update 1/5
Was working ok but now it's buggy & notices don't update & get hung up, & stuck
Error message oauth_nonce already used 2/5
I get an error message when I try to browse the meetups from various categories. The error message says “oauth_nonce” already used. Thanks.
Can’t clear update 1/5
After selecting update I can’t clear it from my update screen 🙄😔
Miss the old icon 1/5
Bring back the old icon and while your at it, why don’t you make it super easy to find out what’s going around me. I want to open this app on the fly and easily find things that interest me, duh 🙄
Horrible app 1/5
By Restless in New York
There is always a problem with this app. I’m done! !!!!
Hate New App 1/5
Stick with desktop
One of buggiest apps I've used 1/5
For charging $15 a month, this is a terrible experience. Amazing how they continue to "fix" bugs, but the app somehow becomes even more unusable. Currently considering ways to transfer my community to something else. Hardly worth the headache for myself or my members.
Some improvements, but… 3/5
Certain elements of the interface are not intuitive at all. For example, I’m struggling with how to change the icon for a group on the app. I did this very simply for one group on an older version, but I still see the bland purple background with a handful of scattered dots on the current one. There’s no clear method of bringing that image up to date.
I can't even add the app! 1/5
I belong to a meet up group, and tried to add the meet up app just now. I tap on open and nothing happens. I just get a blank screen that never opens and it never changes and so I can't say whether the new iteration is good or not because I can't even get any iteration! (I don't understand why it even let me comment here, since I can't access the site)
Not very good! 1/5
Great idea, HORRIBLE execution. I have been struggling with this app for years. I’m sure they are somewhat successful in bringing people together with common interests however they use some of the most crappy software. Simple changes to a profile can be extremely stressful and not productive. Hope you are long in patience. Use with CAUTION.
Utterly confused... 1/5
I have absolutely no idea as to how to operate the app in the manner I did before some of the more recent iterations. Some of the UI/UX choices made are just plain baffling.
It still crashes when trying to get messages
Works great 5/5
Super helpful app to have
Lots of problems. 2/5
Missing app icon, crashes when accessing a group’s page from an event, "read more" links don’t work at all. I’d say there are some problems with this version, despite deleting and downloading a fresh copy on my iPad Pro.
Freezes- this update is a POS 1/5
I can’t get to anything. Takes me to the home screen then when I click on my Meet Up group, it freezes every time. I even uninstalled and reinstalled and it’s still doing it. Please fix!
