  • New to Vero Sep 22, 2018

    By KeithInDallas
    I’m trying Vero because I am looking for a replacement for Path, which is shutting down. Our extended family had used Path for 5 years now to have a “private” social network, and it looks like Vero has similar possibilities. Compared to 4-5 other social networking apps I have tested, Vero’s level of polish, functionality, and stability is far ahead of any of the others! One thing I liked about Path that seems to be missing on Vero is the ability to create customized locations, such as “naming” our home so we can check in there, and so family can check in as well when visiting. The other glaring issue is that the app will NOT run on my iPad Pro. I understand that you might not create a separate iPad app, but I would still like to be able to use the phone app on the iPad! Meanwhile, I am getting all my extended family to download the Vero app and set up accounts. I hope that Vero will consider the two issues that I mentioned as they continue to make updates and improvements.

    I did like the app. It is still in beta so, as expected there are some stuttering over the UI. Didn't encounter any serious issues, as register and research, explore all over. The only thing I like to see is refresh button. That is all. Features are good as it is for now.

    Updated review: took a couple months off of Vero, came back and very impressed by how quickly the team worked to resolve a lot of issues. So far, Ive been loving the real interactions, recommendations from others, and just the true feeling of collaboration and community. I’ve dropped all other social media platforms because I’m sick of the bots, fake commenters, people who follow and quickly unfollow for my followers— so weird, btw, and just complete disconnect or overly competitive. With Vero, I haven’t had such experiences. There’s a few thirsty self-made male/female models that play the IG games, but nothing too excessive. I’ve been preaching about this app to all my friends and coworkers so much that they think I work for Vero- hire me! Lol Old review Feb 2018: I’m trying to give this app a shot but since downloading it, I’ve been receiving nothing but “Internal service error” messages. I was on the app for only 10mins and it drained my battery from 90% to 60%. I’ll try to utilize the app a few more times before giving up since simple searching or displaying everything in the dashboard area takes forever or never loads. Hopefully this app will get it together because it’s a great concept just a faulty system.

    I'm updating my review. A Vero technical associate got in touch with me and was helpful in walking me through the process of getting my account set up. The only reason I'm not giving this app 5 Stars is because I can't figure out how the platform works yet. But I'm hopeful 😊

  • See the potential Jun 9, 2018

    By The man of a million passwords
    First and foremost I definitely see the potential in this app! But there are definitely some kinks that need to be worked out here and there as well. I feel like it the UI isn’t bad, but it’s not attention grabbing. Just very functional. I’m not getting “hooked” on scrolling through my timeline like I would if I was scrolling through IG or Twitter. Also the hashtag suggestions always get wonky on me. Half the time I start typing in a hashtag, the suggestions that it gives me are misspelled versions which is kinda strange. If it isn’t the misspelled version being suggested then it’s not showing a suggestion at all for the most part. With all of that being said, I still give it 4 Stars. I really how they streamlined the sharing is (from books you’re reading, to music you’re listening to, to links for other content, etc). I also really like the content being put out on Vero now too. Definitely some talented content creators out there doing their thing!

    Amazing concept; horrible outcome. This app barely functions and the developers should have spent much more time fixing bugs and errors. Music is impossible to play, whatever song I play it starts IN THE MIDDLE of the song and there is no way to fix that so it starts at the beginning. This is one of several issues. It's a very good concept however it's just not ready to be used. They should have taken more time to complete the app the first time rather than allowing these bugs and glitches.

    Interface is great. Concept is great. Feels classy. But still it feels like a half-baked app. Closes while using the app. Restarts everytime when switch between the apps for no reason. And the number of users are devastatingly low. So nothing exciting. I know it's not completely finished yet but you gotta make a lotta changes to make it a thing.

    DEVS AT Vero please please fix the bugs! I really love the concept behind the app and downloaded it shortly after it started. I recently got an email reminding me of it's existence and I decided to give it a shot again. It has the exact same issues it used to years ago. Buggy, slow, lagging, goes to "reconnecting" often. I believe you guys could be something great if you could finally fix those issues. I'm rooting for you!

    Can't even post. Didn't invite any friends here yet. Just testing it out. I created my first post and when I click the post button the page flashes and then I get the home screen saying create your first post. Tried this several times with no luck. There should not be a bug where you can't post even if you don't have friends yet. Was hoping for an alternative to FB but I guess this is not it.

    This app is great but the messaging is buggy. Message notifications would come in but wont show in the app until much later. I find it difficult to attach photos from my phone folders as the images either wont show or is in another folder, when i do find it and have it selected a different photo is attached. There isnt even an option to delete the image or messages like in whatsapp. I feel so embarrassed.

  • Best of social world Nov 11, 2020

    By kyndlm
    I don’t normally write reviews. I had too this time. Vero gives you the best, to me, of both social worlds from IG and G+. I actually see folks I am following, and see photography which interests me most. When I look through my feed, those in my circles and who I follow, I see all their posts each day. Not whomever the algorithm chooses. You can look for specific interests, genres and or tags, to find what you like. Not what the program thinks you like. The Family of Vero is interactive and enjoyable, haven’t run across a troll yet, because they don’t show up on my feed. I choose who is in my circles and who I follow. I joined when it first started, and here a couple years after, I am on here full time. Dropped my IG accounts completely. I am hoping it continues ‘Add Free’, which is fabulous. For creative individuals and more, I believe its the best of the social worlds

  • it could be so much better May 24, 2018

    By alirezam.me
    *Update: thanks to vero team, app is working greate right now. it's so smooth and i can't see bugs like before. at the end, my problem with support team is completely solved and they answer and support so much better now. here's your 5 star. i have been using this app for one mouth. at first it was all good. app was working smooth and fast. i have sended some emails in that time to support team and they have answered very fast. i rated this app 5 in that time because I really loved it. but now i have to change my rate to 1 star because 2 big problems: first is the app. I'm using the last version and still i see freezing screen usually. so many lags and bugs and it's really annoying. second is support team. they didn't answer my emails and it feels really bad. it shows that maybe they really don't care about users.

  • Very close to everything I’ve been looking for Jun 10, 2020

    By ACBoon
    Not a big review writer, but I’m excited about this app. I’ve only just started to use it, but it seems to have everything I’ve been looking for ever since leaving the Path app several years ago. I would like to be able to post a text only message rather than being forced to add some kind of media (photo, book, music, etc). I’ve taken to typing an input in another app (Hanx Writer...an excellent typing app) and posting a screenshot. Also would like the app team to consider multiple profiles. Path didn’t have this, but I’ve enjoyed this on Twitter as it allows a bit more control of my streams. Happy to see the app is well supported (recent updates and developer responses to reviews). I look forward to finding out what it can fully do and how it further develops.

    I absolutely love Vero. It’s clean and easy to use. I’ve been trying to convert my Facebook friends for years now! It has great potential. However, there are downsides that I find to be rather large. I wish there was a group functionality. It’s going to be hard for me to completely dive in if I’m unable to join some groups to get my daily meme fix. I think groups are a great way to meet new people. The biggest issue is that I can’t for the life of me understand why this app does not support text posts. It’s really odd that anything you post MUST be attached to a song, photo, link etc. That is a very frustrating aspect of the platform. Other than that though, very fun app and the music functions are phenomenal. The interconnection between the app and Apple Music are absolutely ahead of the game!

    Hey guys !! I love Vero really but recently can no longer open and/or post links from Google or YT to my wall.. which is very annoying, considering that the App itself has been crashing lots and had to uninstall / reinstall it often in the past. I hope this is gonna be fixed very shortly please 🙏

  • Love this app, a few suggestions(insight) Jan 22, 2020

    By nrbrjduue
    This app is great because it’s more true to its purpose and feels nothing like a super controlled social experiment that *that other* platform has become. If you guys add comment controls for users so that they can have the option to keep their page and comment section positive and if you invite people from Instagram to use vero, maybe even offer a day mode where the layout can turn lighter, your app will really take off, because right now people are getting tired of using the same 3 platforms and all of their really bad updates. I have a huge following on IG and I would love to promote vero because I’m really tired of Instagram but my concern would be the trolling my page would get just because naturally that comes with the territory lol. anyway, this app is really great, the fact that it doesn’t have a generic feel is what stands out most to me

    I switched to Vero a few weeks ago after leaving the other social media platform behind. Though it's nice to use, has a clean interface and a good set of features, I'm struggling to find much good content on here. What I do miss is the ability to follow hashtags rather than people and I hope that this will be added soon. Otherwise, moving to Vero may be the first step in weaning me off social media altogether!

    *Updated* I created an account and logged out, and it won't let me log back in. When I log in it tells me it's an invalid username, but if I try to sign up it tells me it's already in use. Update 3-3-21 The app team contacted me quickly & the issue I had has resolved itself. I changed my rating from 1 🌟 to 3 🌟🌟 🌟. I'm still learning how to navigate and connect with people since I came to it independently and not by recommendation or with a group. User interface is nice.

  • Quest & Issues. Jul 16, 2020

    By Manfred Hikings
    To begin with. This app is so so much useful and worthwhile. Better than Twitter, Instagram, and other social apps. By and large, I wonder what’s happening to the app Vero. Firstly; Since I signed up for an account initially it worked fine but once I start exploring the app it turns out the app is somewhat very slow in functionality. Secondly; it has these network connection issues (loading for couple minutes over & over), thirdly, Was there any sort of cancellations of the app in 2018 ? Literally, so many accounts was last used in 2018. Few accounts are operational. In brief, if there’s any way of inviting those people back online please do. To keep them informed Vero is back. Also, I’d suggest Vero includes deleting off messages from both ends. Just like instagram, simple and very effective. WhatsApp do, Facebook does too. The master of all is IG. Once unsend from your end. It goes completely without trace. That’s beautiful. Lastly; I’d like Vero to improve the functionality of the app because it seems too large. If made a little bit lighter, it will help. To the programmer. Nice job 🙂 but please try to work on the above issues. Thanks

  • So Close... Sep 18, 2020

    By yellowstoneman
    I want to love this app. I mean who isn’t sick of Facebook’s dominance in social media? Vero’s app is wonderful for media like photo and video—the presentation is beautiful. High res. Pinch to zoom. I enjoy the app. However... 1) Vero doesn’t seem to evolve or grow. They seem content with what they’ve built—it’s been essentially the same platform for years. I left and came back to find the same missing features everyone’s been begging for. The same few accounts being promoted. The same comments about people leaving and coming back. No partnerships with established artists. It’s a ghost town and nobody seems to be motivated to build it further. 2) I’ve seen a ton of requests over the years for text-only posts, and I’ve seen Vero respond with “we’re looking into it.” Yet years later, no text posts. It’s a very common, basic feature that’s needed for a “do-it-all” social app. Should I post a cheap, irrelevant photo when I want to write? We’re all cheering for this app’s success, but it’s frustrating to accept that this appears to be a missed opportunity. I have no idea why Vero would not make a move right now considering Facebook’s brand is so tarnished. People are begging for options, but Vero falls short IMO and doesn’t seem up to the task in its present state.

    Installed it again after two years or so. Reset password and saved password in password manager. Login didn't work with the new password. Reset password again, only to get error messages and then it stopped sending reset mails alltogether. Edit: Added 1 star because of good support, the entire process however continued being buggy and not well designed.

    Why do I constantly get a "Share Your First Post" screen, accompanied with my home page saying my "Profile Is Empty"? And the only way to rectify it is to exit the app, go into my app settings, Stop the app, and clear the cache. I've previously reported this issue, and followed the steps offered, but the problem remains. UPDATE: FEB 4, After submitting multiple "Bug Reports", and uploading the latest version of the app, not only do I have the same issues, but now I can't post comments. WTH?
