Ratings and Reviews
Finally got an app I was waiting for
I and my family plan group events almost every week. We all had a nightmare stating from planning, survey, splitting expense, and communicating among ourselves focusing around the event. This integrated app is very handy, easy to use, and effective in any managing various aspects of local or national events with other family or friends. This app will become my most frequently used app every week.
Best app for Group events, potlucks, trips, expense sharing!
No need to link spreadsheets to group chat for expense splitting or potluck items list! No need of finding RSVP for your event in chat apps buried among thousands of forwarded messages! No need to hand out multiple credit cards to split a lunch bill with friends!
Awesome app for Groups!
Expense sharing and Potluck invites are so useful!
