  • How else ? Aug 18, 2020

    By Swmnupsrtm
    It's tough for me to socialize. Even when I want to , it's not easy to find what will work. Meetup has given me a chance to connect with people based on mutual interests without feeling forced to socialize more than I want to. I started out with a movie meetup, something I often do alone.i had the option of socializing after too. Next I tried a local place where we could play video games and have snacks or drinks . I then found a group that meets up at a coffee shop to get paperwork done! I had been dreaming of finding something this, I even tried to place an ad for a buddy prior to meetup . I haven't tried started a meetup but it's also a possibility here. I found fellow sci fi lovers too, who knew ?! There are lots of groups for outdoor exercise like hiking and biking and during this time of distancing it may prove to be healthy endeavor. The fact that I can pick and choose is ideal. If you haven't tried meetup I say go for it! I am normally leery of people too and meetup provides a nice balance of meeting ,safety, interests and exploration. The groups are generally closed I found that to join I can say a bit about my interests and check out other profiles. I love that I have been about to hang with a 70 yr old and a 20 year old finding common ground. I can leave if I want or stay for the duration. I can talk sci fi or knit ,color or draw , exercise or chill. It's all there in meetup !

    Because I Recently moved to a new area with no friends or any idea were anything is, I cried many tears believing I had made a major mistake. Thank goodness for Meetup. It takes time to learn each groups rules and I have incurred a couple nasty people for breaking a rule I was not aware of. You can’t make a reservation and be late from work, or you are there but u don’t know them and they don’t know you so you are armed as a no show even though you pay for your membership in advance. I always try to be courteous and am willing to pay for a meal when I can’t find the location. I also got kicked out of a group for cancelling a happy hour when a close family member died unexpectedly. But those are only growing pains. These people go to a lot of work and time to make these opportunities available for us. I don’t fault them, I just wish they would treat new members as a new customer to their business. I have met some of the nicest people. The app is great but it crashes on my phone every time. The software seems to be excellent and I have been making some nice friends. It’s a 10 in my book and am so thankful it is available. Much better way to meet other singles than a dating site.

    Flakey app. Different functionality from website. Refresh intermittent. Missed notifications. Biggest problem for organizers: Editing events on mobile deletes all line breaks and leads to a jumbled mess of text without intended logical, visual breaks. User has to settle for horrible visual experience for attendees or tediously add back in all the line brakes.

  • What a god-send for people in situations where they are lonely or want to meet new people! Sep 23, 2019

    By Plybrook
    The app lets you search for groups or activities or events by key word....or just scroll through all the events that meet-up groups have planned for the week and just click to join and get the info! Some are totally open to everyone cuz and some have a short screener for safety. Never found any to be scams and all are just legitimate good people who want to do activities with like-minded people. The only problem I’ve ever had is that sometimes ill sign up to join a meet-up event...like recently at a local festival ...and I get there and can’t find the group because the leader was too vague about the meet-up spot and didn’t have a sign or anything for new people to recognize the group. That’s happened a few times and is a bummer. But mostly it works out! Also, if there’s not a group already out there doing something you like, it’s super easy to start a new group with your interest....I’ve been surprised at the response that new groups get.

  • I am a three year Yogi. I have serious heath issues. May 24, 2020

    By oxygen dependent
    They gave me 3 months to live so I had to fight back. I started doing yoga 7 days a week three years ago. I have an auto immune disease call sarcoidosis. My heart was so enlarged I could barely get out of bed. My lung captivity was less than 50% of normal. My heart went back to normal and my lung capacity had been greatly increased. But the prescribed drugs I take for quality of like are deadly. A drug called prednisone destroyed my hip and cause bone death to the hip bone and hip joint. I was out for about 6 months before they would or could do the replacement. I flew through the surgery and recovery in the mist of another miracle. The Drs gave the credit to my faith in God and Yoga. These online classes are a life saver. I had the surgery on Feb 12 and have recovered 99%. I leave the 1% to allow for carefulness in learning new hip poses. I met Black to Yoga at their outdoor classes in Emeryville about a 18 months ago. The instructors are amazing and well practiced. I am a Yogi for life. This online Yoga durning the Corona Virus is a part of my full armor. Namaste

  • Don’t dare break the rules or ruffle group leaders skirt: Aug 1, 2020

    By dont ever quit
    Life dealt me some unexpected changes and was not able to participate in the activities so left the group. I did not know this was a cardinal sin and when things changed for me, I asked to rejoin. The following was the response from the group leader: “You completely disappeared with no communication. You know I made a lot of effort to welcome you and introduce you to many people. Then you chose to leave and completely disassociate yourself with the group. Respectfully, If you read the policy of this group, someone that chooses to completely leave the group is not allowed to rejoin. I worked very hard at embracing you as a friend and bringing you into the fold and can't think of any logical reason for someone to completely quit the group when one can simply choose not to attend anything if busy and leave it at that. But for some reason, you wanted out...all the way out. Life gets complicated, hard, and busy. I sure have my share of knock-downs and negative things going on, but I don't walk away or abandon my friends. I consider it hurtful to me with all the effort and money I put into this group. It can't be expected to keep approving people that decide to quit on a dime and then expect to be welcomed back each and every time and that is why this rule was initiated.” I don’t need to be talked to like this from anyone. I was never disrespectful like this response. Just what ever you do, don’t ruffle any skirts.

    MeetUp app is awkward. you cannot navigate the app or find features easily. The meaning system is not intuitive. I enjoy the community the concept has created, but someone needs to redesign the app, make it more fluid plus add functionality to make organizing easier.

  • I've only just made an account. Is this normal? May 21, 2018

    By Itendtozoneout
    Sign up was pretty bad on a purely UX perspective. Why is there no exit/done option for users when they're inputting their information? I tapped to enter my age and gender and had no way of finalizing an input, thus couldn't move on to the next field. If I scrolled down to my age, I couldn't hit "ok" or "done" or even a "x" to move to the next section of the sign up form. I opted to just tapping back and forth between things and the screen needed to jump around constantly for me to even be able to reach the "gender" input from underneath the scrolling pop-up for the age input. Be helpful. UX isn't all about aesthetic appeal. If it doesn't work, it's bad UX, regardless of how pretty it looks. You then ask me to provide feedback about my thoughts on the app once I finally get to the home page, and I oblige. Only to find that I can't even send the message. No matter what I did, the "send" option was disabled on the feedback email screen. You ask to collect feedback, but ask your users to figure out a puzzle to be able to help you. This review was meant to be sent in the feedback email that you redirected me to 10 minutes ago. I ended up giving up but decided to still try to give you feedback, just through the AppStore - something I'm confident will actually work correctly. I've only just made an account---- is this what I should expect from the whole app?

    Two days ago this app changed for the worse. It used to show list of upcoming events starting from a few hours ago. Now it starts a few hours in the future, thereby NOT showing events starting within the next few hours!
  1. More than just dating! Meet up with entire groups that share any interest you can possibly imagine - from movies to astrophysics
  2. Search interests & events, not people! By searching common interests & joining groups, you'll easily stumble upon great people before you know it
  3. Easily stay updated on all the great events in your area you're sure to love

    meet up is an excellent way of meeting new people and experiencing new ideas as you seek to join various clubs, etc. want to hike with new friends then check it out. need to get more info about the UFO concern, well, there are others with the same desires so get out your phone and get into meet up and fine your new cause. You will be glad I did. do it, do it now.

  • Pretty user friendly Jan 7, 2020

    By RugPilot
    I’m new to Meetup and have only attended two events and have enjoyed both outings. The people are amazingly friendly, organized and very helpful. Especially to newcomers! I like the app and would give them a 5 star, except that it could use a couple more tweaks to further optimize it. For example, it doesn’t give us an option to provide feedback (such as volunteering to drive or asking for carpooling), during the RSVP stage. Only after having RSVP’d, we must go into the general comments. Another feature would be to allow folks to see the event description without having to RSVP first. Also, being new to the area, most people don’t know the acronyms which the event hosts use in describing or the names of areas. It would be helpful to have a little more descriptions (such as the level of difficulty, etc.) for the event. The State of Washington’s Mountaineering Organization has a very good system which could be used as a model. Overall, I’m very pleased and thankful for this organization. Thank you!

  • New to the area Dec 10, 2020

    By Can't sit still.
    I have found Meetups to be very helpful in finding activities (so far only sports for me) when you are new to an area. I recently moved to the Sacramento area and I found myself becoming a homebody and lethargic. I previously was active on different rec teams, my kids were younger and kept me busy coaching or training them, and without Covid19 my circle of friends were always doing something. But since I have moved all that ended. I haven’t made close friends through Meetups but everyone I have met has been very friendly and welcome new people who enjoy whatever the activity is the group was formed. And there are many, many groups, social, online learning, all sports, age defined and more. I would highly recommend at least seeing what groups are near you, if you find yourself with free time and wanting to do something more productive than tv. Chances are there is a group set up for people with similar interests as you. And there is no obligation. Try it once, see if it’s for you. If not, look for another group.

  • Good but navigation is confusing and redundant May 10, 2018

    By Ben Jiles
    I honestly don’t understand the quick-to-hate for this version of the app. However, they are right when they say this new version is not intuitive and doesn’t make sense. For example, let me go over the bottom 5 tabs are for navigation of critical aspects of meet ups: 1) find new meet ups (like an advanced search feature), 2) card view of current meetup groups and you’re able to browse new ones (honestly 1 and 2 should be combined. It’s redundant and is confusing), 3) the “check mark” icon tab is for your upcoming or past meet ups. This is where you go to see them. However the check mark symbol is a little unintuitive and confusing. It would make more sense to make it some sort of calendar icon., 4) group and meet up notifications, and 5) profile. The app is good, but confusing and redundant. Navigation is not intuitive. Looking forward for newer versions but I understand this takes time and resources. Keep it up.

    I havnt visited meetup in several years so I don't know why I got these emails. I received these emails 3x. All the emails said #1)The meetup was "just scheduled" #2)this "was a reminder" #3)It was showing that my personal calendar had on it that on 11 July 1 2021 I had the class on it. #4)The meeting cost199$. I messaged the leader saying I never signed up and so I think it is spam. She said it is just notification. Then Why is the meeting being shown on my list as my personal calendar?

  • Not Safe!!! Sep 11, 2019

    By Jhawary
    I have an impersonator on this app! There is someone with my same name, in my same groups and same community with my same likes. Please note that my name is uncommon. You won’t anyone with my first and last name combined. I caught a screenshot of of this other profile with a photo. It is definitely not me, but right after I took the screenshot, the profile photo was removed. I reported this a number of times. At first, I thought I may have had established an account at an earlier time and had just forgotten about it. I checked my other emails but found nothing to confirm that. Now, I have proof that this is an imposter! I want this account deleted and I want a response to my complaint! Otherwise, I have to say that the people managing this app are doing nothing to keep the people who want to enjoy this app safe! I have a valid complaint and I have been ignored! The app is a great idea but I need to feel safe. Is this imposter staking me? Do I need to feel afraid to “meet up” with any of the social groups I’m interested in? I need this imposter removed and investigated! What is going on here? How can this be allowed and after I’ve made complaints? Developers (or whomever) pease, contact me further so that I may send the screenshot. I think I might have to report this to the authorities for my safety concerns... I’m only asking that the developers do their part.
