This app rocks

I’ve been using this app for a couple years now and it’s really helped me to stay in the loop with my family. I go to school out of state, so before I started using Porchlight it was hard to stay connected. But now I can check up on them anytime and they can do the same with me (but without it being overbearing).

Loved This App

I really loved this app. I used it for years and it's especially helpful for my friends with mental health issues to communicate how they feel. But recently, the update required me to pay 10$ a month, which is something I'm unable to do as a financially unstable university student. I was drawn to Porchlight because of its nature and interface and ability to connect me and my friends free of charge, but now that it's pricy, I'm no longer able to use the app. Disappointed.

Keeps me close with my Tribe!

I live far from many of my friends and all of my family. Support Tribe gives me a quick daily way so I can keep up and even check in with one of them if they are having a tough, or great day. It also makes it easy to share what’s up with me. Super easy!
