Friended is a messaging app for discovering new people to talk to, for unexpected friendships, and maybe even a chance to meet someone special. On Friended, it doesn’t matter what you look like, how you dress, or where you live... you can just be yourself.
To start, you post an icebreaker and instantly get tons of direct messages. Or, you can message anyone directly by replying to their icebreaker. That's it, instant connection. Instead of popularity-driven social networks where watching your likes and followers grow is like watching paint dry, on Friended it's different... when you post, you'll get into lots of conversations and actually talk to people immediately... It's kinda nice to have real human interaction.
Whether you want to date, or just make friends... pick “friendly” or “flirty” when you post so there are no mixed messages – you know what you’re looking for in a conversation.
Friended makes it easy for people to be themselves, meet new people and feel good. It’s easy to discover awesome people to talk to at any moment. Friended is designed to help start conversations, which can lead to great friendships, someone you end up dating, or even marrying.
Your Friended experience is what you make it. No social media pressure, no judgment - just be yourself.

Ratings and Reviews
I like the concept!
I’ve managed to befriend a few people on here! The concept has allowed me to socialize with people from around the US. I’ve been using the app consistently for about four days now which is rare and I see myself using it continuously. Honestly, I love it. My only concern is that with them trying to make money, it will make features more and more inaccessible due to the lack of gems! Right now most features are accessible, the ice breakers, profiles, people’s pictures, etc. But I notice that if you want to message other ice breakers that are in people’s profiles, you have to pay up with gems. So it makes it harder to connect. You have 1 ice breaker to create per every 8 hours, which is tough, but manageable. My fear is that with time, with them trying to make money, they’ll make it harder for us users by adding required gems (money) to features already available to us. I hope not, cause I really do like this app!
Great job, guys!

Paid “actors “
This app is a complete scam. They require you to use Facebook to make you think that everyone accessing it uses Facebook, however the company employees people to try and engage other people. Then you have to buy things. And that’s where the scam begins. First clue, oh it’s so nice to get a response from a beautiful woman like you. Notice how they always as a question? That’s because they get paid for the messages they send that receive a response. Somebody actually asked me what my name was and where I am from when it says it right there on my profile. And the whole stars thing is ridiculous. That’s a game and contest. There reason you are meeting people from all over the country instead of just your area. Because you will never be able to meet anyone in person. There are people on there like the ones who actually download this app, but they are few and far between. Don’t think for a minute you’re going to find anyone to start a relationship with on this app.
Trust me, I worked for a company like this that was based in another country who recruited people to work from home. I did this for about a day and then I really started feeling bad for the people that were being scammed.

This appears to be a review from a competitor. We've asked Apple to take it down.
It's cute but doesn't do what I feel like it should.
The idea of the app is great, like a Tinder with substance for friends. The problem is, I think a bunch of guys think that it is Tinder and they missed the substance part. I was hoping that I would create this and be able to connect with people in my area that I actually get to meet up with you in real life. I also thought I might be able to filter it by gender because I don't need more guy friends, I can go to any bar and find some of those. I was really hoping to be able to find female friends that actually have similar interests or something we could bond over. What I found out is that there's no way to filter by area or gender so I'm just getting bombarded with random messages from random guys that I don't know anything about. If I wanted that I would go on Tinder itself. I think a lot of females feel like it's hard to find female friends in this day in age and we are so busy and don't really seem to get out as much, and I feel like this app could help bridge that gap but, the way it's formatted it's not going to do that right now.
