Meetup: Local groups & events app reviews

  • Helpful but filter options need improvement 3/5

    By Centexrates
    This app is helpful for finding things to do, however, it would be beneficial to have some order to the listings. Having the option to filter a specific day is good, but adding a filter for the listings to appear in order based on time of event would be great. Currently, I can’t seem to find this option and events seem to just be randomly distributed in the list.
  • Notification issues 1/5

    By Minamator
    I have reached out to MeetUp multiple times about their notification issues. I only want to be notified if I am messaged or someone replies to a comment. But no matter what setting I toggle, I receive notifications for EVERYTHING. Every time a group announces a new event, I get a notification. 15-20 notifications a day. So I have to turn off all notifications, which means I can’t get messages and comments.
  • Isn’t working 1/5

    By Chill of Winter
    At least for me it isn’t. I’ve deleted and re downloaded the app with no change. Just keeps crashing saying “missing value”
  • Major privacy issues 1/5

    By JGThan
    Even after deactivating my account I received this email. “ While we have processed your request, please note that we may retain personal information that we are permitted or required to retain by applicable laws. We will retain a record of your request for our files in accordance with applicable law. You may also have the right to complain to your local privacy authority.” I looked into what information they collect and retain and it’s quite disturbing. It includes browsing history and cookies. Avoid this if you want privacy.
  • No support 1/5

    By Charle 2019
    My meetup group often sends email messages and I don’t get them. My settings are correct and I can’t get support from meetup.
  • My input: 5/5

    By suzan kay
    For the most part I enjoy meet ups however I believe meet up leaders and organizers should be monitored more carefully! Eg.people like Darren @ ETB (explore the bay) should not be allowed to continue having meetups And I have series of reasons that I could discuss with the CEO/president of meetup since Darren claims that his buddies with the president and I heard him threaten several people that he will tell his “buddy” to not allow them to use meet ups!! I really have not spent time researching executives at meet ups but I believe my input would make a difference as again, I have several reasons to share and not particularly against Darren in particular!! My input about meet ups which is what you want on this review can be extremely beneficial and I’m willing to take the time to share with you over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine!🍷 Btw, if the president does not want to take the time I might be willing to sit down with the VP or the Director of customer satisfaction & or even the Vp of product development. Sincerely, Suzan
  • Stop pushing notifications! 1/5

    By Jason2824
    The setting for push notifications does nothing…. Had to mute the app via iOS to stop getting multiple notifications a day about events being scheduled that aren’t even on groups I belong too
  • Lots of spam 3/5

    By adamdesautel
    You can turn off various Push Notifications settings all you want; get ready for a barrage of notifications every day from this app. Can't disable notifications altogether of course; makes it very difficult to run your own Meetup when you do that unless you want to check it compulsively, which is what the concept of notifications is supposed to fix. Instead, this app will bother you more than any codependent relationship you've ever had.
  • This app is making me crazy 1/5

    By SebasDuranona
    When I deactivate email notifications, I expect to STOP receiving email notifications. I keep getting blasted with events I have no intention to attend to just because I happened to show some interest in a yoga class 3 years ago. This is insane!
  • Great place to meet like minded people 5/5

    By Meetupaddict
    I’m addicted to Meetup. I’ve met people, taken trips, gone out for dinner, taken walks, explored history and seen sights I didn’t know were there with Meetup groups. Don’t mope around; find groups that like what you like and get out there.
  • Racists 1/5

    By Burr216
    Very segregated. Why divide people by race? Sad!
  • Awesome app 5/5

    By Semaj_Naraka
    Great way to connect people

    By durhamsandiego
    I signed up to be an organizer and never heard back regarding my background check. I tried to get a refund within their 14 day window and it’s impossible! The most I could do was cancel my subscription!!
  • Love it 5/5

    By Me and fi
    The app is easy to use and I like seeing all my groups in one place.
  • Thanks! 5/5

    By Rhp12345
    MeetUp has been a great resource in a small town where it is hard to meet people who are similar age/interests. Many of my closest friends I met through MeetUp!
  • One stop Activity and Interest Center 5/5

    By Jman5785
    It’s great to have a one location where I can find so many groups of every interest.
  • Hardly anyone uses this app 1/5

    By iijl
    Nor many people using this app to meet up. Thousands of members but only 1-4 people actually joining any given event. This is in a city like Los Angeles also. Lots of very rude organizers also. I’ll just meet up using another app.
  • After a decade this platform should have nailed it 2/5

    By pdxpaws
    I’ve been an organizer for almost as long as this platform has existed and seen others come and go as they charge various fees. Meetup is still lagging in basic functionality matters noted by many reviews, yet it’s raised it’s fees and made any upgrades inaccessible unless you pay even more to “go pro” Communicating with your members and uploading images should a seamless single click options. Not so here, even after years of contact asking that these basic items be attended to, and as someone who worked with images for years, I know how to meet the specs for photos and this platform’s system hasn’t been updated since it’s inception. These user-unfriendly issues are why so many of us have migrated to other venues and are using meetup less and less.
  • Meetup 5/5

    By gkjdej
    It can be very difficult at my age to find people to do things with so I am very grateful for this app. I joined a womens’ hiking group, I was very active in a wining and dining group and I even found an adults coloring group which I can’t wait to try. If you are like me and you love to socialize without the hassle of wrangling people to do things with, then this site is for you. Ready, set, go for it!
  • Can’t Turn Off Notifications 1/5

    By bc-2020
    If you install the Meetup app, be prepared to get plenty of notifications. The setting to turn off notifications does not work. If you want to stop the notifications, you have to remove the Meetup app. Maybe there is a reason the most recent app’s ratings are from last year.
  • Excellent y Platform 5/5

    By PhD Crowley
    Awesome way to get visibility and also connect all over the world. Love it!!!
  • Too much excluding and not enough including 1/5

    By Brickpapi
    There is a lot of exclusion on this app that boils all the way down to your gender and the color of your skin. The app support team is non existent as these Silicon Valley startups just like meet up moving to remote work and laying off their it and network engineers their support teams have become non existent, I can’t delete my account so I am stuck with an app I won’t use or ever need, if you’re a young male you’re going to find a hard time meeting up with other like minded groups because it’s divided into women, black women, and Mexican women, and more women, if you’re a guy you go kick rocks
  • My REVIEW 5/5

    By yontiff
    Upon reading your enticing message on line I felt very much encouraged to be a link to your membership. I’m looking forward to “meet up” & to share my experiences and memories with you. I’m having outpatient minor surgery tomorrow& will look forward to hearing from you, thanks in advance, Florida Fran PSL Florida 34987
  • Search engine is garbage. 1/5

    By 104246
    I have to use Google to search Meetup’s website because their own search engine is so abysmal, especially if I’m looking for a specific group. And putting quotes around what you are searching for does nothing. You still get results for anything and everything that contains even one word of what you are searching for. Utterly useless.
  • Only one event upcoming in NYC? I don’t think so. 1/5

    By Angie0591
    This app has a really annoying bug where if you select all upcoming in person events within 5 miles of NYC like three things pop up. With only those two filters applied. Somehow I have a really freaking hard time believing that there’s only a couple events in all of New York City coming up over the next few weeks. Meanwhile if you go to the full website there’s hundreds if not thousands of events. And there’s no way to scroll further in the app, it literally just shows you three events and hides the rest.
  • Great way to go to new places and meet new people 5/5

    By SharonM-J
    This may have started as a dating site but love how it has evolved to a meetup group! You meet a lot of people with like minded interests. I have meet people of all ages and met new friends! It is well worth trying and you can bring a friend to events. Must try!
  • Password 2/5

    By poodletale
    So, I don't want to sign in with Facebook again. I want to sign in with my email address. Resetting a password is next to impossible. Why in the world do they require 10 characters? Like somebody's going to hack your meetup account? Frustrated.
  • Awesome. Great way to meet like minded people 5/5

    By remyxmas
    Awesome. Great way to meet like minded people
  • Great social vehicles 5/5

    By @celestine.smith
    Meet up helped me find and Join hiking group during the pandemic. Love it.
  • Photo uploads once again broken 1/5

    By fxstein
    Photos have seats been a pain in the meetup app. As of late nobody on our events is able to upload any event photos. How can such an important feature have so many issues all the time?
  • App is way too buggy 1/5

    By DerekSPQR
    It logs me out every time I upload a photo.
  • What’s wrong with meetup 3/5

    By 1357)$88&
    You have multiple separate groups doing the same activity. why not have them join together. The idea being more people meet up. And ALL events be advertised even if your not a member because it will get people to join the groups Because they want to join the activities offered.
  • Can’t change email address 1/5

    By Christine Taylor Kight
    I signed up for meetup through my iPhone and I accidentally did not select the setting that would allow Meetup to have my actual email address… But rather some sort of mask related to my Apple ID …Unfortunately I now have 2 meetup accounts and cannot fix it. I have searched help but there is no suggestion whatsoever for simply changing your email address 🫤 I have reached out to help repeatedly over a period of several months but the problem remains
  • Ummm, wow… 3/5

    By MrOBrian
    I downloaded the app because the website is so broken. It froze when trying to log in. I had to close the tab and start over. Then it wouldn’t load my profile picture correctly, it kept putting it sideways, no matter how many times I told it to rotate it. Then, when browsing for a group, the page wouldn’t display correctly and stopped responding to clicks. So, after fighting the broken website I came to the App Store to grab the app, only to find that they don’t have one for iPad, so I get a tiny iPhone app on my iPad, making it that much more difficult to work with, but at least it let me properly upload a profile picture… the second time I tried. The first time it glitched on me and removed the picture I already had without replacing it with my new one. I first started using Meetup about 10 years ago, so it’s very disappointing that both the app and website have so many problems. These issues are something I might expect from a small startup, but not from Meetup. The only reason I’m giving 3 stars is because, if you can get past the numerous bugs, Meetup is a great way to connect with people who have similar interests.
  • Updated review for the latest app version. 5/5

    By Pooneil8
    Meetup is a great service to find a way to be involved. I use it to find out of doors activities. But there are many social and professional groups too. The app is pretty good now. We still have to put up with intermittent problems. But they are irksome but don’t hold back the overall benefit of meetup.
  • Love 3/5

    By theRealSkadi
    Love this!!!! I just wish it saved searches, so when the app refreshes I don't lose what I was looking up
  • For some reason I cannot add photos to my events 3/5

    By Jen2Uboo
    OK 69.99 I believe for six months however I can I add photos to my event can someone help me please thank you
  • Disappointed 2/5

    By ridearound
    Site continues to lock me out even though I have changed my password five times. People are inconsistent on attending after they signup. Some are disrespectful when they do attend. The groups I have been in are fizziling with less and less participation. Only one will meet less than an hour from me (after Covid). Bad times for all, I guess.
  • Good community, poor app 1/5

    By boro-lad
    This app is low quality and lets down the overall good communities that exist within it. It feels just like an older, slow html style website, rather than a modern app.
  • Awful 1/5

    By Unbilible
    Impossible amounts of emails and unnecessarily difficult to unsubscribe or deactivate account. Hate it!!!!!
  • Usless trash 1/5

    By Nevadagrl435
    I have been getting “hmm nothing to see here” messages for DAYS now. Cannot click on any events I haven’t RSVP’d to previously. There is no option to get help at all and I’ve already uninstalled and reinstalled. Useless, worthless app.
  • App 5/5

    By BEMO57
    I haven’t been to a event yet, but I will this week. Looking forward to making new friends.
  • Can’t see events 3/5

    By DavidC1914
    Haven’t used much but I’ve been looking for groups to join and every time I click on an event it says “hmm…there’s no one here. That page doesn’t exist or might have been deleted “. Would love to be able to see the events
  • APP is Glitchy 1/5

    By LLE_QuiDat
    It will not allow me to RSVP to any events from the APP, I have to go to mobile web browser. If I RSVP I can see it but can not RSVP TO ANYTHING from the App which makes it completely useless.
  • Unreliable, non functioning, just use the website. 1/5

    By Pauladin
    I never really write reviews but I just had to after using this app for years. This app just doesn’t work. Updates make problems even worse, and the problem persist for months at a time. Just use the website and save some space on your phone screen. They somehow changed a mostly reliable experience into a dumpster fire which is quite the accomplishment in this day and age.
  • App keeps showing API error 1/5

    By Kavya_rs
    I constantly get internal errors and the app doesn’t open event pages half the time saying event moved or closed.
  • Great organization, terrible app 2/5

    By £#*+?.~{¥'cath
    I have been a part of the Meetup community for years. I use the app multiple times a day as I am very active in multiple meet up groups. The app is the buggiest of all apps that I have ever used for anything. There are times when it will suddenly just not function. For example, just now I was trying to look at events under my groups that have been scheduled for months and that I’ve had no problems viewing, and then suddenly the app says that there is nothing to see here. As someone who is in the meet up group and knows the organizers personally, I know that this event is still going on. There’s other buggy things that come and go that I don’t understand how they can get missed so frequently. The only good side is that the bugginess is temporary, generally lasting a few hours. However, some other bugginess or even the same one they come back again in a few weeks. In a nutshell, it seems to be an unstable app.
  • Oops - app is unusable 1/5

    By t3233840
    Meetup is a great service. However, the iOS app is unusable. Any tab or section I click on gives me an “Oops - missing value” or “Oops - something went wrong” error, so I can’t actually use the app to find and RSVP to events. I have had to ditch the app entirely and rely on the mobile and desktop websites instead.
  • Group cancellations 1/5

    By Athenslistener
    Hate it. Can’t cancel group.
