App lacks so many essential features 1/5
This ever so confusing app doesn't let me delete or add my interests on the fly. I have to go to meetup's website to accomplish this simple task.
I live in Buffalo, NY stop showing me all the meetups in TORONTO!! which is over 100 miles away! This app had so much potential at one point. Guess its back to good old word of mouth to find a club I would want to join. Deleting this app asap.
Best Way to Find Groups 4/5
I found this app to be extremely useful. I retired several years ago, and travel extensively. Wherever I go, I can find interesting groups and events to attend. Having diverse interests, there’s always something to do.
By One more Jesus freak...
As with all apps it has issues which like with all apps they work on fixing. That said very thankful for the app as I don't have a desktop to us. I stay as informed as often as I use it and it's linked to my calendar for my reminder.
ZERO stars 1/5
Doesn’t work at all! Try logging in and nothing happens! Once I was logged in all pages were blank, it said it couldn’t find my location. I deleted it! Total Crap!
Can’t use, says IP has been flagged due suspicious behavior?
Amazing app to bring people from different part of the world together 4/5
By Monika Swarnkar
I am amazed by the idea of this app.It gives you the freedom to meet people from diocese background to get along.
No other app is showing a dozen new notifications every few days. I keep going to the notification settings app for a resolution. I don’t want to know about new meet ups! I just want to know about when things happen for meet ups I’m attending.
The whole value add for the app is barely supported: communicating with your meet ups on your phone.
It’s been a year since the app came out, fix this
Why the app doesn't work 1/5
It cost to much for the subscription, if the subscriber is trying to find just a few people, that might take months to find, there not going to pay that much a month. That's why I can't find what I want on this app.
Instead of making it unlimited give them the option to make a one time payment per Meetup post say 20 dollars for the year, I would be willing to pay that for one meetup post per year.
New version locks up 1/5
Can’t open app after update.
Loved it prior.
Immediately crashes on iPad; hate it anyway 1/5
By Jonathan M.C.
Now it just crashes when trying to launch, every time, version 6.6.1 (iOS 9.3.5) on iPad 3. Looks like you dropped support of my iPad/iOS, which is mean. But anyway it's a terrible app (and web). I actually liked the old app and old web, even on a small iPhone screen. The new app and new meetup web are terrible, and not improving, because the company clearly doesn't understand the "user stories" (in software parlance).
App is useless for organizers 1/5
App doesn’t allow to change attendance, manage member’s roles and website meetup.com which I used for those things also has stopped working. Uh. Since I don’t owe pc/laptop, it’s not great
Give it a try 5/5
I love this.
Gone form bad to worse 1/5
By Sm michelle
Ok, so now when I’m trying to look at the daily calendar it’s no longer in time order, it’s very random the order in which it jump from am to pm and back to am. If you try and join a group that has a required question the app won’t bring you to the question page and basically you can’t go forward with the process to join the group. The random suggestions are unhelpful as it’s groups that I would qualify to join because of age, race and sexual orientation and now I’m being give an overwhelming amount of suggestions of groups to join and most are not things I listed as my interest.This app is very hard to navigate I don’t understand why meetup had to change so many features to the point that the app just doesn’t function very well and complaints seem to fall on deaf ears. A couple of years a go the app was uncomplicated and simple to use. Also on the iPad version I don’t even have a meetup icon anymore. Pleases fix this app.
When I send a personal message through the app on my iPhone it’s sending the message twice.
As a MeetUp Attendee (not host) 5/5
This app seems to be working pretty good so far! I am having a problem loading events when I filtered for today in my area. Seems off to have no events on a Friday night in Santa Cruz CA...
Something to look into. I’ll update my review as I continue using the app and new versions come out.
Crap app 1/5
I try and try again- start over with this thing will you?
By i shawky
Great and wonderful app
Not a fan 2/5
By My Vibes
Too often the app simply will not load. Really frustrating. I hope all of the issues are fixed soon.
No support 1/5
By Emily S.B
Please don’t refer me to /help or send email to support team, nor integrity team. Because as you know they are so busy, they don’t have time for customers. The app has a lot of bugs, and worst experience I’ve seen on the App Store, nor from the support team.
I love this app 5/5
I have made so many new friends and networking is so much easier. I love it.
Great Resource 5/5
Have really enjoyed the tech groups I found through Meetup. Always learning something new. Love it!
Hard to use 1/5
I tried using it and it just would say oops suspicious uses but I am brand new to the app and after maybe 10 times of trying to use it I gave up. I even waiting a few months and came back downloaded it again and the same thing happened so I’m over it.
Virtually unusable 1/5
The web site has been destroyed in the redesign. Attendance taken is broken now. Hard to find events. Slow AF. Full of caching bugs.
I’m taking my community somewhere else soon. Avoid.
Just more and more confusing. 1/5
Quality control is a thing of the past. Baffling and Unintuitive... The app is now so bad I've now deleted it and started using the iOS web browser version. The app has more broken functions than ever. The haphazard way of hiding things makes me think the developers are bored or drunk. Every command is a treasure hunt. Calendar update doesn't work. App now assumes if you let an attendee bring guest they can bring as many as they want - no limit - terrible. You can NOT take attendance after the event - no shows now get credit for not attending. How do you access messages? Only 1 photo can be posted when listing an event? and it doesn't display on the app? Why is the Calendar is hidden? 7 clicks to find your own event, then app crashes. I remember when this app was at a glance, ...instead now it's about secret knowledge to give dumb people something to fill their time with. Interface is klunky and unintuitive. Each version is worse than the last. Every step a step backwards... no exception here once again... quality control is a foreign concept Meetup.
If it not broke, fix it anyway! 1/5
Why do people, try to mess up things that worked well?
I see this over and over again and I am sick of it. I guess you hire a new company to design and improve your site but are not familiar with what your site is all about so they go ahead and make changes just to be able to say they did something so they can get paid for there services not caring at all about the end user only concerned about getting paid for doing something. I am sure there are things in the old site that needed to be improved but why throw out the baby with the bath water. You need to take a step back and just work on the complaints that members have.
Annoying app 2/5
Can’t be viewed landscape mode on iPad. Very annoying.
Basic things still don’t work 1/5
Had an organizer text me today saying she couldn’t open the app to get to our location. She kept getting a notification that she wasn’t a member of our group every time she wanted to click on the event. We had a big valentines party with 14 people and 27 kids attend our meetup. 19 pictures were uploaded to the event and no one can open them in the app but the mobile web version is allowing us to see them but not download them. One picture out of 19 load in the app.
Every single time I try to open the latest Meetup app, it crashes. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it, still crashes, who created it? Dumb app.
So much Fun! 4/5
This app was suggested to me and I have lots of fun going through and finding groups that I enjoy, but I had no idea was in the area. I love the way it is set up. You can look by day, week or choose by category. So much fun, I have shared it and I have met new people in my community. I really recommend it. The only downside is it won’t let me save a pic of myself, I have tried repeatedly and no matter what it won’t change the pic. And I hate the pic it choose! Other than that it is great, where is tech support? Thanks guys.....
App doesn’t open 2/5
By Galle lama
Why isn’t your app opening?
Ever since the update I can't even open the app.. I deleted it and re downloaded it twice.. it's very frustrating!! I like the concept of this app. You get to network and meet new people with similar interests. But I can't even open it!! Please fix this issue asap! This app need a competitor maybe there service would more functional then!
Frequently locks up on iPad and never opens beyond meetup screen 1/5
By The Next 5 things
I loved this app previously. Now for the past two months it will rarely open beyond the initial screen that says meetup. As a meeting organizer it’s beyond frustrating. I’m not sure that the latest improvements were worth creating this sort of frustration!
Money gougers 1/5
In addition to having to pay a monthly or annual fee just to be a part of someone’s stupid group, YOU also must pay $14.99 a MONTH just to start your own freaking group. This is stupid. Facebook will always outdo Meetup, because they don’t need to gouge people for money just to meet people. 🖕🏼🖕🏼🖕🏼🖕🏼
App Crashes & Uploading Photos is hit or miss :( 3/5
Every time I want to upload a photo, it’s just closes the app. So all I can do on this app is RSVP and write comments.
OK for an attendee; could be much better, though... 3/5
Too many clicks too often, unobvious placement of close-dialog icon
Doesn’t work 1/5
The new app doesn’t even open on my phone anymore.
Great App 5/5
This app is wonderful and thus far I haven't had any bad experiences
Used to be awesome but now it’s painful 1/5
The first few versions initially were awesome. Usability and navigation were very intuitive. Around a year or two ago the redesign happened and it was bad! It’s getting worse now. I hardly use the app anymore. Searching your own activities and locate past events is more complex than sending a rocket to space. A good app killed by bad redesign.
FRUSTRATING and Unreliable 1/5
By Texas Toni
I have had my MeetUp group on this site for 9 years since I have not found somewhere else to re-start my group. The idea of this site is great, but the implementation is tragic. I wish there were a really good competitor to MeetUp or that Facebook or someone competent would buy them out. They increase our dues, but the services are equally as frustrating as ever. Their latest interface has wiped out various of the meet spots where my group meets and it will not allow me to rebuild them with an accurate pin in place. I’m sick of rebuilding things all the time anyway, putting hours more work into something that should not require this much of my time. In addition, they do not respond to my email about the fact that my meetup locations are messed up and it appears they have taken away the ability to mark no-shows at an event and track chronic no-show-ers so that we don’t hang around in the cold waiting on them. I hate that I am currently limited to this website for my group activity. Finally, I have now received a response that did not answer my concerns, asking me to respond to an automated message. Huh?
Great experience 5/5
By Believer Thomas
I have enjoyed the different groups that I have joined. This has been a great way for me to meet new people and to have others to go out with and enjoy Memphis and beyond.
It works 4/5
The only issues I've had were user err. I would prefer the messages to come up quicker or were easier to access. I think it's me but it seems like a lot of BS to go through just to actually discuss the group activities you want to attend. This encourages me to use risky security behavior if I give up and give out personal information just to cut out the static. Oh oh now I've got a stalker or; call me crazy but not stupid. How many problems have your app users had with hackers? Social networking apps are a blessing and a curse. I happen to use this one.
Really regret updating the app, now nothing is in chronological order. If I filter by my groups only, somehow nothing shows up. Can I go back the older version.
Great App 5/5
Easy to navigate.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Khyrstal Blue
Just sits there with blank page and nothing comes up. On iPhone 6. Plus up to date IOS
Calendar view gone :( 1/5
They removed the ability to see events on particular days. This is an important feature for me. Meetup Product Management needs to step back and re-evaluate their decisions. I think they are falling into the trap of prioritizing user acquisition over user satisfaction. This short-sighted strategy has ruined many promising businesses such as Google Plus and LinkedIn.
Great events & great people
I think this app is great, and I do not know why other people have such a tough time with it. If it wasn’t for this app I would never be able to have a social life that I do, I am thankful for this app exist so many people are using it
Now i can meet people
Meetup Review 5/5
Excellent app! Has opened doors and brought wonderful people into my life I never would have met otherwise.
