Ratings and Reviews
One of my favorite apps
I’ve been using this app for a couple years and suggest it to others all the time. I’m disappointed in the location search in the latest version, however. In the current version I get multiple communities in my area — this is great.
However — in the previous version, when looking for a meeting in another location and the name of a City, meetings for surrounding cities were included (i.e., an entry for Walnut Creek, CA included meetings in Concord, Pleasant Hill, Pinole, Orinda, and other cities covered by the Service Center for that area). In the latest version 3.0.28, the only hits returned are for the City input, so multiple city searches are required for meetings in surrounding communities. I don’t see a way to expand the search for +10 or 20 miles. This may not be an issue in some areas, but for many of us in multi-City areas it’s not always as easy.
What a wonderful surprise. After moving to a new area, one of the first things I did was research new meeting locations. I was pleasantly surprised to find this AA meeting finder app. What a great way for Alcoholics Anonymous to step into the 21st Century and provide our younger (in heart and in age) members with a easy, fast way to look for up-to-date meeting locations that include Zoom links. With our “new normal” reality of social distancing and spur-of-the-moment changes, it’s of ultimate importance that our community help 12-step members find the information they need. The pandemic has caused a great struggle for many alcoholics by losing the one thing that keeps us spiritually fit - connection with one another. This app makes it easier for members to find ways to keep that connection. Thank you to the developers in helping to facilitate that connection.
Service at its finest
Beautifully implemented app, faster and easier than my Central Office web meeting look-up that uses the same data. Perfect for, among other things, my shifts on the local hotline. Thank you (from Portland)!
The folding chair icon is a bonus. It's exactly right (even though none of my current meetings use folding chairs <g>).
Two suggestions for a 5th star, based on the things I immediately looked for and wasn't able to find (but recognize they might already be there): (1) a sort-by-distance option, and (2) a pick-list for available meeting lists; currently, it seems we have to guess ("Boston" got me meetings in southern NH).
