Where’s the networking 1/5
I gave a try to this app for a couple of weeks. Outside the constant paywall reminder and push notifications about how much better it would be if you paid, networking is nonexistent. I matched with a couple of people and they never returned any of the messages. Not sure if all profiles are real. It’s a good concept but not currently working.
Best way to develop your network 5/5
Works better than anything else to meet people outside of your direct industry or network
Wish it worked 1/5
After trying to sign in via LinkedIn and failing numerous times I created an account the old fashioned way. Had a really rocky time with setting up my profile. The auto suggest tag system process was painfully slow. I eventually gave up on that too.
After the exiting the buggy on-boarding experience I was presented yet another roadblock! The landing page that was supposed to help me discover others threw another error.
Are you servers overloaded? I would suggest you turn off new user registration or the ability to login until you get these issues addressed.
As a new user I was very disappointed. Seems like a cool idea! Too bad its so fundamentally broken.
Ill try again sometime. Hoping for a much better experience in the future.
They will charge you the full 69.99 instead of the monthly charge. Not enough matches in my area to justify using this app.
The leading mobile networking platform! 5/5
A ton of great connections that I’ve made in Shapr, after already having to use this for a couple years now!
Note to the developer(s): please invest in upgrading the platform’s interface/experience even further - this app has so much potential
Member for Two Years. Useless App. 1/5
By The Syndicate
The casual networking in this app is a complete waste of time. It got me nowhere. Almost nobody returns messages. When they do it is always a waste of a meetup. Do not waste your time or money on this. It’s far better to go to actual networking events.
The paywall comes up, part of it doesn’t show and as a result there’s no way to click out of it!
Nothing yet 3/5
So far it seems most individuals are wanting to sell me on a new job or trying to help kick start a work from home job. Makes it seem like most are here just to recruit people and not make a real connection. I’ve been on it 2 months and it’s the same message of “I am here to help others kick start a new opportunity working etc.”
Would be interesting to know how we match since most I’ve matched with don’t have the selections I’ve put and the location too. Seems more of the profiles may be fake. I was excited to try since I just relocated and an article made it seem they connected with authentic individuals who want a meaningful connection and to gain new knowledge.
Still will try but not going to pay for the upgrade again sadly.
Perfect for networking 5/5
By neff narko
Free version limitations are too much 2/5
After investing quite a lot of time filling out my profile, I try the search experience. I can't swipe a single person left or right because the pay wall pops up each time I try. I was hoping to get a sense of the people I'd able to find, but this is too aggressive. Unfortunately deleted my account because this is not a great way to establish user trust.
I was very excited about this until I realized you have to pay for literally every little thing. I get you need to make money but this is legit out of hand.
Doesn’t login 1/5
Keeps on circling between the app and LinkedIN and does not log in. Uninstalling...
Can’t reset my password
Only good if you’re willing to pay 2/5
The “ free “ part of this app is so restricted that it’s basically not even worth the effort of signing up. You can’t message, or see who swiped right on you and you can search to see the exact people you’d love to get in contact with but you can’t swipe right or message them without the pro version. The pro version is of course an expensive monthly subscription rather than a one time investment. If you are only joining to get in touch with people than go to a different app like meetup
Don’t waste your money. 1/5
Did not find it useful at all. Not even a single connection
All I get is 502 bad gateway 1/5
Can't log in. :(
Entry level functionality is too restrictive 2/5
Unless your willing to shell out a monthly fee this app isn’t worth it. The only thing you can do for free is swipe on people they suggest for you and the algorithm they are using hasn’t been very helpful thus far in creating good matches at least for me. The devs need to at least unlock the search feature for free users. Currently the free version is so locked down I as the end user can’t even get a feel for what it would be like to be subscribing member. This should be more like linked in where you have lots of basic features and then they also give you glimpses of what the benefits of having a subscription could be. Not very impressed with this app because basically everything is behind the subscription wall.
The app gets all of your information by setting up a profile and the ASK YOU TO UPGRADE before you can do anything else . A waste of time
Schemes, Spamming and Time Waste 1/5
By S.Millie’s iPhone 6
Way too many pyramid schemers, spammers and time wasters. They’ll even talk a good talk to get your email or phone number to send you bs.
Most useless app on my phone 1/5
Dont waste your time. Can't talk to anyone on this app without paying
totally inaccessible to blind users 3/5
No effort seems to have been made to make this app accessible using voiceOver which is what blind people use for access on an iPHone. There are apparently simple tools Apple provides to developers for accessibility support. At least it's developers who do support VoiceOver who tell me how easy it is. I was able to struggle through creating a profile but cannot do the swiping or other connection-making tasks for which this app exists. Creating and editing the profile was also a piece of work. I tried contacting the developer before posting this but could not find a way to do that. The web site seems to support only the problems they have already addressed. Good work putting up a barrier for the people who most need tools like this.
The Tinder of business networking 4/5
By Dj Dominox
Basically it's a professional environment to connect and talk to people in a business manner. I like using this app because my heavy work schedule does not allow me to attend conferences to grow my network.
Don’t waste your time. 2/5
they want you to pay that much for subscription? Just shows they have to up the price due to not that many downloads. why not make it 8$ optional on a month to month basis, instead of 100$ for 12 months. Also the same people pop up once you’ve declined them. The people you do want to work with, may have already deleted the app, 24 hours just to wait for new swipes? and lastly but many not listed, why give suggestions of someone in another state in the free version? i don’t live there. YALL ARE CRAZY! How about making it a quality app first and let it spread by word of mouth instead of trying to make quick money .
I love this app because of its utility.
Horrible user experience 1/5
Don’t use this app use LinkedIn or bumble. This app is a joke I do not recommend anyone to wast their time on it.The makers of this app gives you the option to sign in with LinkedIn and then fails to log you in. Or when you do create an account it makes you click reset my password which sends you an email to reset your password. The actual reseting of your password is a joke. You can’t. The page 500s (errors out) leaving you unable to reset your password. When you do make it into the app the whole experience is a joke. Your daily count of 5 free swipes (a joke right there) shouldn’t be deducted for saying you are not interested in meeting all their robot profile.
This app started my Software Engineering Career! 5/5
I downloaded this app a couple of months ago. After a week or two, I got connected with a bunch of people even better than LinkedIn. Long story short one of those connections became my employer now. I’m a software engineer at a great tech startup in NYC 😁 thank you Shapr! 🙏🏼 you literally changed my life!
I use it all the time 5/5
Use this exclusively for emailing and tracking. It deserves 5 stars, but lately has been crashing on my iPhone X. Please fix
It won’t let me add my freelance 1/5
It’s not allowing me to add my title or has a spot for freelance. I’m a writer and photographer and would love to meet likeminded people, or people looking for such people and I’m not able to. It’s not a big let down but there’s no point in keeping the app or recommending it to my friends.
Tinder copy? 2/5
To be honest I downloaded this app to recruit people for my business but all I have is dudes trying to hit on me.
A little creepy 2/5
By married in minneapolis
For a married woman it felt too much like a dating app encouraging meet ups with random guys. No thank you. The app functioned fine, but the concept feels creepy, like it could easily be used for hook-ups. I wasn’t comfortable using it, so I deleted it.
I had cancelled my subscription prior to the renewal and see recently that my account was automatically renewed. I went through the steps from my iPhone>settings>etc...to verify account cancelled...I was charged for $69.99 which I don’t have since my lay-off...can someone please fix the issue with the charges made?
Super buggy 1/5
I just paid for this App, and it is soooo buggy. Can’t swipe, keeps popping up, “Your request could not be processed. Please try again in a few hours?!” Also the people I match with stay in limbo. AND I get repeated people even when I ALREADY swiped them. I exit out of the app and log back in and it works....for a little bit... then right back to buggy. Love the idea but what the heck did I just purchased?!
Not quite 1/5
App has too few users and wants you to pay... no thanks.
Developers FIX YOUR SH*T 1/5
Does not have log in button, only get started. Once you click get started to register it prompts to log in existing users and does not let you register. Useless from the very beginning
Constant Fee Ad Pop-up 1/5
I don’t like that I can’t narrow my search to my specific location without paying a membership fee
MAKE SEARCH FREE
Only took 15 minutes to realize it's junk 1/5
After 15 minutes I realized this is a crap app. I deleted my account and then the app. Give it a shot if you like, but most people will come to see it's all either recruiters that will spam you or low skill people looking for answers.
Does not work 1/5
I cannot access again since I changed phone. An error occurs while trying to connect.
Works Great 5/5
By Boaz Chacko
Shapr is cool networking tool . It’s excellent.
By A L Will
I keep swiping past individuals who can help me with my needs. And connecting with those who cant.
Beware Of Pyramid Schemes... “Mentor” 2/5
I think I have met some really cool people and some really inspiring travelers and photographers.
What I really hate about this app is how many “friendly” people are on this app in hopes you get you to join their pyramid scheme (or similar) paid membership to join some crap scheme. People need to be very very aware of this. My mentor has blah blah blah... “made six figures Wall Street and got this side hustle where they were able to walk away!” Many many people will attempt to sell you on this. Just report them.
World adventures, Building an E-commerce sure that scales by building an online community, or Amway, etc etc.
These are businesses in hopes to get you to sell for them for free. You make little to nothing. More so in the US, but I’m guessing Europe has similar programs. “Get your family and friends to sign up for this awesome travel program”... it’s all crap. Hopefully people don’t fall for this.
Waste of time 1/5
I was very excited about this app, paid for a full year, and it is such a waste. Seriously, what’s the point? Don’t waste your time or money x
The Sharpr app is an outstanding app.. I respect their policies and enjoy the way the app is designed.. if there could me options for sharing pictures, it will make it more advanced
I have to pay to network! 1/5
This app is ridiculously stupid- I’m not paying to network 👎
Not connecting me to my specifications 1/5
The search capability has gotten worse. It is connecting my to people that would never be a fit. I have tried to make adjustments but that was not possible. I would not recommend this app.
Waste of time - Pointless 1/5
Honestly, it’s a waste of time. If you are not a “Pro” paying user it’s a huge waste of time. It’s not local. Matching with someone in Paris, other countries and states is a waste of time and pointless. Very disappointed in this app. I really thought it was exactly what I needed but It let me down. You can only swipe like 10 people too...Worst app.
Rarely anyone local 1/5
I’m in the Midwest USA, but Shapr usually recommends matches in Canada or the extreme east coast. For the last two days it’s been showing me matches from New Zealand and South Africa. Pretty close to uninstalling this nonsense.
