Ratings and Reviews
Nothing Wrong, But Nothing Great...
Because this is its own social network and not integrated into an already existing social network, the amount of people is limited. Hopefully this app being advertised on the front page of the App Store today will help with that.
I’m sure there are a few people who have found real life connections on here, but I have not. Lots of people to chat with online, but when you want to meet up it’s a no go. It seems like we’re in a part of the electronic age where people are obsessed with their phones and don’t actually want to meet in person. Their whole lives are virtual now and they’re not okay with fixing the addiction.
The app itself is very well made, everything works well. There is an Incognito button if you’re too embarrassed to say something or ask a question and have it show your name. There is also a block button because unfortunately mom’s can be insane and mean too. Matching up to chat is somewhat like the Tinder setup with swiping and two people swiping each other gives you a Match. No bugs at all so far and I’ve been using it for a month. So, 4/5 stars because the app does what it’s supposed to, it’s just the majority of users aren’t interested in using it to find real life friends like it’s supposed to be used for.
Best Mama App!
Being a new mother and making friends is extremely hard. I downloaded this app last year, right before the pandemic hit. I originally download it because I wanted to find local Mother's who I could have playdates with. Then I found myself pregnant again and with an almost four-month old, I just wanted to talk to someone who weren't my husband or mother. I wanted to find other Mother’s who were going though the same thing as me and could relate. At first it was hard to talk to people but I got out of my comfort zone and then the matches started coming in. I’ve spoken to so many strong women around the world. Peanut just got a new update not that long ago, that lets you join group chats called “PODS” and it’s amazing! You're able to even form your own group chats and even FaceTime your matched friends just incase you want to make sure it's the person you're talking to. This is coming from a paranoid mama and it's been such an amazing experience. There’s so many different types of Mama's on this app and the conversations are always good. If you want to connect with different types of Mama's around the world who know exactly what you’re going through, this app is for you. Ever since I downloaded this app, Motherhood has gotten a little easier with all the advice that I’ve gotten. I’ve even made some amazing friends who will be friends for life.
Great! But also needs so work
I really love the concept of this app! So far I have not made any real life connections in this app. Only virtually. But I’m hoping that will change soon!! A big part of why I didn’t give this app five stars is because it’s not exclusive when searching for what you’re looking for. I have a special needs son and am looking for other moms in my area who also have special needs kids. There’s not an option to filter your searches using the badges on your profile. Additionally, I’d love to be able to creat a group on here for special needs parents where I can set up events or book clubs or play dates for our kids with special needs. Or even just talk about our struggles within the group. Unfortunately that’s not an option yet, but I’m hoping it soon will be!
Finding moms to talk to on here has been great!!! I hope to keep making connections, but hopefully I’ll be able to make more connections with moms I have things in common with.
