please let us block/hide events 1/5
please please create the option to block or hide suggested events
Please give us dark mode and an iPad version! 2/5
iPad version would allow us to use it in landscape mode. Dark mode should just be a given. Interface could be a bit simpler too.
What happened here? 2/5
By Lawrence Kay
The app is so busy promoting “other” events that it’s almost impossible to find events my friends have invited me to, and/or that I’ve already signed up to attend (via FB website, for example). And then if I find the event I’ve already signed up for, the app makes it difficult to get the relevant information to attend.
Why can’t this app be more like the very functional, eminently useful Events part of the FB website? Why does this app have to be so extra?
No calendar sync? Seriously? 1/5
This app, and Facebook events in general, could be good if there was an easy way to sync items with a calendar aggregation app. It’s incredibly frustrating that these events can not sync with even the most popular (iOS and google) calendars. I’m not going to delineate all the many reasons why this is a necessary feature that I find completely preposterous to be missing. Get your act together.
Hard to use, weird sorting 1/5
The sorting makes this app really hard to use. After navigating to a “Tomorrow”, I still get recommendations for the current day, even if they’ve already ended. If I sort by start time, nearly all the events disappear. Not worth the hassle anymore.
Handy but needs an update! 2/5
I create events quite often. But recently for someone reason when I start typing in the description it’s invisible text. Until I save it it shows up. Which makes editing impossible. Please fix this soon!!
Muy vomito esta tarde 5/5
Needs ability to hide events you don’t want 3/5
I enjoy finding events through this app, but there are dozens of events I am uninterested in. I wish I could hide events so I don’t continue to see them when I search later. Redfin does this really well with home listings for example
It crashes so much you can’t use it 1/5
I can’t select anything without the app crashing. It’s pretty much useless.
Good app 3/5
I really like this app. However it´s missing landscape mode on iPad. Can you fix that please?
Good idea, horrible interface 1/5
My generation is starting to only use Facebook for events, so this is a smart move. However, the interface for this app (which mirrors the Events section of the Facebook app) is absolutely horrible. It takes forever to figure out “this is what I’m committed to, this is what my friends are doing, this is how I can make a new event” - unlike the old events interface, there are items laid out everywhere with a useless map taking almost 2/3rds of the screen. Also, the text for the event details doesn’t show up when you’re editing. Fix this please!
Search by date broken(and hard to find) 1/5
When I want to use this app I almost always want to search for events on a specific date. However that is not one of the options on the main page. You should theoretically be able to stumble on feature this if under “Find more events” you hit “This weekend” then in the page that comes up hit “This weekend” then scroll down to “Choose date” and select a new date range. But when I tried that nothing happened and it just kept giving me events happening this weekend. Fix this feature and then make it easier to access. This is basic stuff it shouldnt be that hard.
Stop Trying to Curate 1/5
By opinions are like
This was my go-to app to discover new things in the city. Now that FB curates it by places I go & things my friends are into, I’m stuck in an echo chamber and can’t find new things. It’s awful. If I search a specific date, I get things in a three day range (yes, I’m using the filter correctly). I can’t just search on a free night & get events happening that night. This used to be an enormously useful app. No longer.
Decent app but no landscape view on my iPad 3/5
I do most none work related stuff on my iPad. I rarely use apps that don’t have landscape view since my iPad is in a keyboard folio. Hoping for that feature to come in a future update.
Easier to find events I’m interested on fb app 2/5
I downloaded this bc finding events and fun things to do is the best part of fb and the only feature I think really adds value to my life. Alas, the local app just doesn’t deliver the same accurate suggested activities. I wish I could use this app as a replacement for fb, but I just don’t find all the events I’m interested in.
Can't be used without GPS spying 1/5
All I want to do is tell it where I am but it keeps going back to some other place most likely to try to get you to let Facebook spy on my location
It’d be nice if we could view recently past events, so we can decide if we give a darn about this app or not. We don’t use FB
Delete Notifications 1/5
Please bring back the ability to delete notifications. That feature was useful. I haven’t used the app in quite a while because of that.
Used to be best now can’t use 1/5
This app used to be a go to before the main FB app. However, it has quit upon launching very time for weeks if not months. I keep it hoping that an update will fix this.
Cannot react or comment on anything since last update. 1/5
Since the last update the option to comment or react is not there at all on posts, and I cannot make posts in events.
Wish I could see who I invited to an event 4/5
Feature request: Can you please put in a section where you can see which friends you invited to a given event? It’s hard to figure out who I invited to what.
Other than that I like this app! Nice to have it separate from fb app.
Informative but has glitches 3/5
I get my notifications and other suggestions in my area or nearby areas so that’s the most awesome feature about it.
GLITCH: The “See more” on the Gallery doesn’t work
So far so good 4/5
I love this app. I hated that I sometimes couldn’t remember how to find an event I was invited to through Facebook but everything is here and easy to find. One of my favorite new apps on my phone.
I like the app— when it works. Lately I haven’t been getting notifications of new events that are created in the groups I’m in and missed this week’s meeting which really upset me. Secondly, and the most annoying issue this app has, is when I go to look at the events say for tomorrow, then I push “See More Recommendations”, it says “No Results Found” every time!! I’ve tried to change the dates, change the filters, the sorting, everything! At first I thought, oh well maybe that’s all that was going on tomorrow.. but then again, on a weekend near Nashville, there’s always a million events going on. And I’d like to know about them.
App is “too busy.” 2/5
I find the app suggests too many events/businesses that are irrelevant to my needs and lifestyle. The layout is a bit of an eyesore. There are some good aspects to this app though it’s easy to see its room for growth. I imagine in time it will be indispensable.
It was better... 3/5
With the recent changes, such as a pull up tab overlapping a map, I find it far less user-friendly and harder to search. Also, on both this app and on Facebook, the search results on mobile are extremely limited. I looked for events on one date and was given five results. Four events that I knew for a fact were happening that day weren't even listed, so how many more am I not seeing? I want to love it, but it needs to be more user friendly. Please get rid of the map and replace with a map button. We don't all need everything pinned every time. Let us choose to see that. Put the app's power behind its searching and sorting functions, please! I was happy with how it was, disappointed with how it is now, and excited for how it could be.

Cant follow any list! The button of follow doesn't work
I absolutely hate the update. It’s made it much harder to find events and just harder to navigate in general. Please change it ASAP.
Doesn’t show events 1/5
By J. Slice
Sooo. At the very least, when I connect my FB account and I expect to see the same recommended events as I do on the web. Also, any filter results in 0 results. Surely, its just a bug I hope. Cause FB is literally dead to me save for the events.
Needs more features!!! 2/5
I thought this app would offer the same features as facebook & more than the facebook app! I'm not able to manually add an event to my native calendar or any of my calendars. I don't want every event I am interested in on my iCal & I don't want to set a reminder either! This app is only good for sharing events & looking at or confirming events. When trying to invite friends this app does not display the list of friends I have created... no one has time to go through their entire friends list. I was really excited to download this app but I am disappointed at its lack of features!!
Location Location Location 3/5
I just installed the app and realized it isn’t asking me where I live. Of course!! It will operate off the location I use on my FB page profile. Well that’s not where I live now and I am not changing it for security reasons. What a neat gimmick for the master data collection agency of the world to pull off getting current locations on all of us. Don’t be stupid. That’s all I have to say. Thx

Rubio Low first
Was Much Better 3/5
Have you noticed the same trend in reviews about apps? Many read something like “Yhis was so much better before they did the last update.” That’s the same here. Apparently once again some programmer decided to fix what wasn’t broken and turned a pretty good app into crap. I now spend more time figuring how to navigate than I do finding items. Then often when I find wat I was looking for I can’t post it to one of my groups...Which I could do before FB took it over
By Hugh Malkin
Using version 24.0 with iOS 12.4. Selecting search icon then ‘events’. Then the app closes.
I would like to search the map area for events during a select days in the future. This version cannot do this.
Never works. I can’t create my own event. Keep getting error message.
Was good, now I can’t post photos in the posts for my event. Please fix this! 1/5

Was good, now I can’t post photos in the posts for my event. Please fix this!
This app was my life 2/5
By Anonymous star cc
We all have certain feelings about Facebook, but the Events have been a shining redeeming quality to Facebooks continued existence for me since the addition of the event option was added to the sidebar of the news feed. And then this great Local app came out so I could forego the Facebook scroll and just fill my calendar with great local events. The calendar view quickly became my favorite way to easily view and schedule things. And now it has disappeared in this recent update.
The preview shots on the app update page even show a button saying “See my calendar”, but for some reason in the updated Local app it’s a “See all upcoming events” that leads to an overwhelming scroll. This mimics the counterintuitive version of accessing events on the main Facebook app. There is a “See All” link already in the upper right corner of the Your Upcoming Events view and this is a duplicate way of accessing this same overwhelming view.
Please bring back the practical old school calendar view so I can click on a single date and make sure I’m already booked with things to do on my day off or see all the things I’m doing just one day at a time.
Please!! I’m so disappointingly frustrated that I finally updated an app only to make it useless.
Poor UI/UX 2/5
Deviates from conventional iOS patterns without good reason or execution. Also, there are many bugs, such as non-functional user profile deeplinks.
No More Events Calendar 1/5
I used to love this app but now that it no longer has the calendar feature i’m upset!
What happened? 3/5
This app was my favorite! It was very easy to explore and find new events because the app was very simple. I just updated it and I am so, so sad. There is way too much going on now! I am overwhelmed by the navigation, overlapping pages, and the decrease in size of events (there are too many on a page now!). I was a huge evangelist, now I am not sure if I will continue to use it.
Good idea, not implemented well 1/5
This app covers Facebook events, which is what I use facebook for these days. The UI was, for whatever reason, designed around a map which makes it really cumbersome and difficult to use. I’m surprised Facebook shipped an app that is so unintuitive, and I find I frequently have to go to events on the normal Facebook app to complete the basic actions I want
Love the idea for this app, just wish it was designed better. The map should maybe be one section of the overall app, and there should be better controls for finding and responding to events. It’s ridiculous that you can’t see all the info about an event in this app, while you can on the normal fb app. I don’t understand why you have to press more details to view that info?
Need to update the check in 3/5
This app doesn’t do well with the check in button, as when you go to see it on the FB app it doesn’t show the event just a blank page with “updated his/her status”. Actually have to check in on the FB app to show the event, so thus one is just to know about the event...
Watch out for fake events 1/5
Just like there are fake news in Facebook, there are fake events that charge you
Error in app 3/5
I enter to the app and one min later it comes me out to my screen iPhone. I have to enter again to the app but still happening the same.
Slow buggy and doesn’t show local business 1/5
This app is clunky buggy slow and doesn’t show the local business around me or my local business and there is no way to add a business to the app. Help tab is useless and if you click on privacy and term the app just closes. I see this as a wast of time.
Does not combine multiple locations 1/5
I enjoyed the older version of this concept where it would show you events for an ENTIRE area. There are surrounding cities and multiple locations outside of one specific city! It’s frustrating changing the location each. and. every. time. Please fix!
Works great, many helpful features, and a great tool to organize your events, places of interests, and explore local and national cities. Love it! Will only get even better with time, I'm sure!
Barely useable 3/5
Needs significant improvements to the user experience
