Better way to meet people IRL

Good things: most importantly, quality of people I’ve met so far has been high. Profiles help judge who can come to your event. Requiring a charitable donation stops people from flaking. Found out a lot of places I wouldn’t have known about without Locals.

What I’d like to see in the next version: require a minimum charitable donation (you can say this now but people apply to join your event with no donation anyway). In-app sharing of pictures after the event. The ability to go straight to the chat from the event page if you’re running an event (instead of managing applicants).

Developer Response ,

MikeinLdn, thanks so much for the review and suggestion. We will take this forward for discussion. Helping charities is at the core of every action on Locals so we are thinking about ways to make this easier and better to keep driving those donations to allow everyone to have fun and do good. We may make it so the Host has a choice of how much people have to donate to join them but we will investigate what is possible. Amazing suggestion. Have a great day and thanks once again. 💛

Great idea - issues with flaky organisers

I really like the idea of meeting new people via common interests and supporting charities along the way. The first event I went to was great and I enjoyed the experience. However, since then I’ve had 3 events where the organiser either went MIA or was very bad with communication and left things until last minute, so as a result these events didn’t go ahead, even though my donations were accepted. I, of course, don’t mind donating but I’d prefer to send money to charities of my choice if the events don’t actually take place. The app developers should think about putting some safeguards in place, or at least prompts, to discourage the organisers from being flaky. E.g. if they don’t end up organising the in-person event that could incur some penalties or the donation amount reduces. Otherwise, I don’t see how else you can stop people from being unreliable.

Thank you a lot for sharing your honest feedback. 🙌🏻 I am very glad you liked our core idea of making the world better while having fun. 🏄‍♂️
And so sorry to hear you had communication issues with some of your experiences’ hosts. Unfortunately, if your request has been accepted by the host, we have already processed your donation and sent it to the charity. You can try to not miss out on what you paid for by speaking to the host and checking if they have any flexibility. I believe you could also join them some next time on another occasion. Thank you for sharing our values, we truly hope you will keep bringing your kindness and awesomeness to our community. 💛 If you have any questions about our app or suggestions on how to make cooler, please feel free to message us here: Have a great day! ⭐

Great app with minor adjustments

It’s a really good app. It’s better than Meetup in my opinion, and you can easily find likeminded people. The only improvements I would make is the app can be a bit slow at times & takes long to load. A suggestion of mine coming from personal experience of being a woman on networking platforms - maybe stress or emphasise that this app is for networking and building relationships, not so much dating? Or if dating is involved in this app (I’m not sure) perhaps have the option to say interested for dating or not, just to save unwanted and awkward interactions


I’ve been experiencing people not selecting me for events with no explanation why. It makes me feel worser off than not being on the app. It would help if the host could at least give you an explanation as to why they don’t want you in the group. Makes you feel unwanted.

Developer Response ,

Hey Hbvdt! Our hearts simply overflowed with gratitude 💛 What a blessing to hear you felt the ease of connecting with our precious users. Thank you for choosing our community and expressing your feelings about the Locals app itself. The dating aspect is definitely not our main core; we strive to curate a safe space for people to create meaningful connections that make one's life more fulfilling. Our whole team is trying to improve your experience by any means, so we'll make sure awkward interactions are not in the place! We so appreciate your support ✨ Have the greatest day!
