App layout confusing 1/5
Confusing to navigate and not with the subscription
Can only invite 10 guests w/o upgrading 3/5
By Sharon Bell
Previously loved hobnob and used for 2 events. Tried to create an event recently and found out you can only invite 10 guests at a time if you don’t upgrade. Not worth $8 a month just to invite a few people when you can use other apps for free or much cheaper and invite as many people as you want with more options for flyers.
Made party planning so easy! 5/5
I’m not typically one to write reviews, but this is worth it! I love that I can pull from my phone contacts to invite people, and get notified on my phone to see who is coming and who isn’t! People were much more willing to respond to this than snail mail invites. It is so quick for them to just click the link and RSVP right on their phone. And I don’t have to make a whole other list to keep track of it. The app keeps track of it for you! Everything about this was so easy!!
Hobnob is fun!! 5/5
By 14kt toy
This is a cool way to send invites and check out who viewed it.. but maybe blowing you off! Nice tracking and great design features!
Great social app 5/5
I love the designs that you can put together in seconds, you have so many choices, there isn’t a need to worry about boring invitations. I don’t have to pay a graffiti designer anymore, it’s all in the hobnob app. I didn’t give it 5 stars because you can’t erase or delete the event once it’s over. It has to remain in your inbox, if I was able to delete, it would have 5 stars.👍😄
Love it! 5/5
Hobnob makes party planning sooooo much easier! It’s quick, user-friendly, affordable- I’ll never invite another way again!
Excellent app for organizing events
THE BEST 5/5
By Piggie's Ma
This is so easy and fun! I have really enjoyed this app, it’s so convenient and so updated! Try it you will love it and it saves money!
HobNob works for me! 5/5
By U2 guy
All I do is create a gorgeous looking invite with all of HobNob’s awesome prompts...then HobNob sends it out as a convenient text. Friends text in their RSVPs and messages, then HobNob sends out the reminders every so often, and even driving directions! Thank you!!
!!! RIP OFF !!!!! ZERO STARS!!!! 1/5
I only know about this app because someone sent an invite to an event using this app. I downloaded it just so then I can see the invite. I then attempt to use the app on a free trial to send out an invite of my own but the app was no longer available to me on the day of my event which was only a week from the day I originally received the invite.
I did not agree for any upgrade of any kind on this app but was charged $49.99 for a plus package that I will never use. I am not able to contact anyone from this app at this time via phone. I will be contacting Apple Store and the Better Business Bureau.
Please be careful with this app.
I appreciate your reply but right after I wrote my review I placed a call to Apple and advised them of the issue I was having. I do not use FACE ID /TOUCH ID so therefore once again I did not receive any notices of any kind including email. Also, I do not host enough events to sign up for a plus/prime subscription that would cost so much as you do have a standard subscription that coast much less than $46.99.
The rep from Apple walked me through canceling the subscription, deleting the app and provided me with a refund. Therefore once again thank you for your reply but I have no further interest business with your app.
Couldn’t even use the app 1/5
The app either froze while using it or crashed in the middle of my invitation making. Therefore I couldn’t even give it more than a 1 star review. I have the newest iPhone software and using the iPhone 6 Plus. I downloaded a different app that worked wonders, had an invitation made in less then 5 minutes.
Love it! 4/5
Love it and easy to use... my only suggestion would be adding ability to send thank you’s to the guest!
Thanks for the new update! 5/5
Fixed the resizing issues on the custom flyer. Thanks so much. You all are the best!
This app makes party invites so easy and it’s paperless! 💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼
Unfortunately, Hobnob is not allowing me to automatically upgrade my account.
Amazing Video Flyers! 🔥🔥🔥 5/5
I’ve been using Hobnob for a little while now and loving it. It allows me to send beautiful invites by text that make people think I’m a designer, But with these new video invitations it’s been taken to the next level!!! I’ll never get rid of this app!
Filter Issue 3/5
After using this app for a long time when it was free I found it to have everything I wanted. I tried other invite apps and came back to be a paying customer.
The only issue I’m having is that the make your own flyer now puts a dull filter over all my invitations. I had spoken with the company and had hoped this would be fixed by now but 3 parties later, it’s still ruining my invites.
Cannot Resend the Invite!!! 2/5
By Cat xo
I like most of the functions of this app. However as I approach my RSVP deadline I find that I am on able to resend the invite to those guests who I can clearly see have not viewed the original invite. I find this to be a function that is severely lacking in functionality for an invite application. The only way I can see to send an invite to these already invited guests is to invite them again which creates additional numbers and duplication in my guest count!
Trash Templates 1/5
Looked for a template appropriate for a baby shower and didn’t find one. They are limited templates even with the plans. Will be deleting the app
Edit: Dear developer, uploading your own design doesn’t work. The design loses it’s quality when you upload it. Yh app is trash. I said what I said
$46.99 piece of crap 1/5
Facebook & eVites is so much better. No easy way to communicate with guests unless they have app and charged for full year instead of monthly. No clear indication that I was getting charged for full year. I only needed this for one event. Will delete as soon as event is over.
Hob nob review 3/5
The reason for a three star is because my guess told me they did not RSVP because Hob nob wanted them to down an app or sign up. This lead to a lot of confusion.
WAS awesome, not so much anymore. 1/5
I have been using this app since 2015 and got all my friends using it too. Didn’t realize it’s basically worthless unless you subscribe now. I have a major aversion to monthly subscriptions, especially for something I use 4-5x a year. Who is throwing parties monthly or more??? Recently, a friend sent an invite and I didn’t get the usual text notification. Then, it expired, because she only paid for one month. Now I can no longer see the event details! It also seems like unless the host AND all the guests pay for the app, it’s not going to function well. So disappointing because I used to LOVE this app. I would support a one time fee and ads don’t bother me.
amazing app 5/5
it so easy to use and great to keep track of guest
Dates should reflect as full month once you select. For example, when you pick June it appears as “Jun” on invite.
Update:Connected to cell phone number 4/5
Update: Emailed customer service and they updated my phone number. Wish I didn’t have to go through all of that but it was an instance fix.
Changed my phone number and got a new phone. Trying to download the app on my new phone with my old account. Can’t 🤬
By overcharged Bride
Hard time canceling.
By Pooh of ammon
I love this app it’s so easy to use app friendly!
Super slow 2/5
Let me create invites but now the app never loads
Have yet to receive additional ‘free’ invites from three different friends who downloaded the link directly from me. Does NOT allow you to make changes to attendee contact info (ie email). No desktop interface to ‘clean up’ event info or contacts
A little disappointed 2/5
This app was great until the started limiting the amount of guest one can add for free to the invitation.
Birthday party 5/5
By the Nealys
Had great time celebrating my 50th
Great app 5/5
Great app so easy to use
Only 10 recipients? 3/5
Love that I can text invites but was limited to 10 free invites :(
Wanted to give it 5 stars BUT 4/5
The only thing about this app is the access code people need to RSVP when they click the invitation link after receiving the text message. A few people have mentioned it’s just an extra step not needed to view the invitation. Other than that, great app to text invites-looks very professional compared to others I have tried in the past.
Excellent Invitation App & Tracker!!! 5/5
By Mrs. Drewski
I didn’t realize how great this app was when I first downloaded it. You can create animated invites or personalize with your own pic. Then, easily check down your contact list to invite. The app even tracks you rsvps (yes & no). You can even send msgs & share pics within the app too!
Lots of flaws. 1/5
There is some weird thing when I was trying to create the invitation for my daughter’s birthday party for 3 pm. The only option I had is 15:00. There was no way to change that. Also, some of the designs had date format in such a weird way: April 28,15....for us it looked like I put a wrong year but all it was April 28 (at) 15:00 hour. No designs had a year. That was very strange to me. Won’t use this app again and I wish I wouldn’t pay for it.
To developer who responded with “there is no issue with app but rather it is your device setting being 24 hour format”. Thank you. I know I am using 24 hour format but I think your app should have option of editing time without attaching it to setting on my phone. I wonder why developer didn’t respond about issue with no year and having hour showing up right after month and day so it looks like it is a year not a time? The response didn’t change my mind about the app.
After free trail beware they won’t let you access your events 3/5
By Shanni F.
App stalls. Some guests didnt get my invites. After signing up for free trail and not renewing they made a pending event inaccessible even though some of the people invited were within the free invite category.
I loved this app until I had to pay for it for my daughter’s bday party. I will buy a moth so that guests can access the upcoming invite but plan to cancel, delete app and use better services for now on.
Won't send invites 1/5
So I designed an amazing card and I was loving the app but every time I try to send the invite it just loads for a very long time I have been trying to send it for 2 hours now and I have good wifi but it won't send please fix it I want to have a party :(
good idea, wish app worked better
Loading screen is very laggy and designs don’t load on event creation page. Heard it was a good app, but incredibly buggy.
On the hour 4/5
Hob Nob looked to be a fun alternative to Evite and Paperless Post. They offer unique layouts and fonts as well options to add details the previous sites mentioned do not. Text notifications and option to text invites are nice. My frustration came near the end of creating my invite. Only on the hour, :15/:30 and :45 past the hour are options for start and end times. A 5 or 10 minute difference may not seem important but for my event it was. I didn’t want to start my invite over on another site (because I’m lazy) so I just went with inaccurate times and made note of it in the extra details section. The term “null” is used for any imported contact making it necessary to click on “null” to reveal the guest’s name. Total pain to do that every time I check rsvps so I had to write them down. Petty little complaint but I wish it I could use the app in landscape view.
Missing the basics 2/5
1. You can’t resend invites. People tend to delete messages so being able to resend it important.
2. Can’t choose when to send invite reminders.
3. You can’t cancel an event through the app.
4. User Centered Design and customer needs not a priority.
Basic features that should be there.
It ok could be better 3/5
The app is great other than the fact it only allows you to invite 10 ppl for free. Usually events involve more than 10 ppl. So for birthday parties, business events, etc. It’s inconvenient but I guess we could always buy the other options 🤷🏽♀️.
Receiver has to download app to see details 1/5
By Normally happy customer
If the receiver has to download the app to see the details of the event it’s a waste
No longer a good app 1/5
By Jan Marquez
I loved HobNob, but now I won’t be using as they will be charging to invite guests after you past your limit of 10 invites. This is horrible. Why can’t they keep the way it was and just focus on advertising. Sorry, I will no longer be using this service.
Not many options unable to fancy it up and
Limited to creating your invitations 😬
Guests are Not Receiving Invite 2/5
I was really excited about using this service however my daughter and I spent time creating her birthday invite and I set her as a cohost. All seemed great until she tried to invite a guest. The app shows the invite was sent and delivered to the correct phone number as a text, but the guest never got the invite. We tried multiple times and still nothing.
This is making this app completely useless as the intent of sending invites via text message is not working properly. I have even activated the free trail which will charge my card once the week is up and it still isn’t working correctly.
Update- in response to the developer’s response......The persons phone was right next to me. They did not have the app installed and did NOT get the text message with the invite. The app makes it seem that the person does not need the app to be notified they have an invite. It makes it hard to use because you then are forced to make sure everyone you invite downloads the app first so they get notified. No one lied about anything.
Graduation Invites 5/5
Very nice app! I used it for my twins Graduation.
Not easy to RSVP 1/5
The idea of an invite delivered by text rather than email sounded good but for some reason several invitees had a hard time rsvping. Until this app is widely used it won’t be seamless. Now i have paid for a year subscription when i thought the trial would be free. The signup was misleading.
Birthday party invite 5/5
I liked the simplicity of my daughters birthday party invite , it was one with palm trees . Really cute , everyone loved it .
Great ! 5/5
It gave me options to customize and I did it in just a few minutes. Super easy to use and it has everything you need to make your guests feel they are in the party before the party even begins!! Awesome!!
