A Social Networking App that Actually Brings People Together
Mappen is an app that has the potential to undo the negative social effects that have derived from previous social media. It encourages and facilitates the process of meeting up with your friends IN REAL LIFE. From its locational map homepage to its event planning tool, Mappen makes hanging out and checking up on friends a breeze. The app organizes friends and events in a way that is easy to manage (but, like anything, could still use a few tweaks), creating a social platform that users can smoothly operate. Furthermore, “friends” on the Mappen app are ACTUALLY the traditional definition of friends as it promotes interpersonal relationships between connected users. I especially loved the function that lets your friends know “I’m Okay.” Like I said before, Mappen can be the social networking app that brings people back together and ultimately betters the social aspects of today’s modern world.
Notifies People To Get The App Who You Think Already Have It!
This app notifies people whom you’re “Adding” from your contacts and the app makes it seem like they already have the app... NOPE. You are EXPLICITLY INVITING these people to JOIN the app. An app that you haven’t even used yet because this is in the setup process of the app. The app then sends these people a text message saying that YOU (it uses your name!) invited them to join. I just clicked “Add” to every name it suggested to just fly through the process, so I sent an invite to A LOT of people- including people I barely talk to (ex-girlfriends, people from class, family members, friends’ parents, coworkers, MY BOSS, etc. I was so embarrassed. If this app says anywhere that you will explicitly be inviting these people, they definitely don’t do a good job of making it well-known. Hell, they should at least change “Add” to “INVITE”. It is very deceiving. They are definitely trying very hard to basically spam people to get as many people to download the app as possible using your name as their source of credibility totally at your expense. So unethical. DO NOT DOWNLOAD.
Very very good, specially the idea of it.
The app is very good as a start, but you must remove the 3 Gifs when The user launches the app for the first time, because when i get it I don’t need such a thing which doesn’t represent a professional app, while its good and funny as part of a commercial. The structure and design are beautiful, but need to work on the the options the user have and what may he think about what to do with his friends, and specially the number of friends. As a team focus on what’s next and what can we do.
DO NOT DOWNLOAD
If I could give it zero stars I would. I have never in my life left a review before but I felt this app deserved it. And I hope that users of the app read this before downloading the app. This app is absolutely useless. When I tried to delete my account with no option of recovery I got countless emails and text messages explaining how to deactivate my account saying “this will actually delete your account” well I tried it and it doesn’t “actually delete your account”. An app should always allow its users to delete their account with no option of recovery. And it should ALWAYS let the users know if they cannot delete their account BEFORE they make an account. ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS. This should be illegal. Everyone has a right to privacy and to decide what to do and what not to do with their personal information. Not allowing me to delete my account is violating this. I wish I would’ve never downloaded this app. I’m still emailing and texting them but they have stopped responding. Mappen be honest and straight up with users. Sincerely, a VERY angry user.
I’ve been using Mappen since the app came out in 2017. I used it a couple times while living in DC, but it was still buggy at that time. Since then, I’ve watched how the developers have adjusted the app and made it more useful. Mappen does a great job letting you know that you don’t have to spend your Friday alone on the couch watching the Office on Netflix for the 63rd time. It gives one notification on Friday night that tells you to get out of the house. After opening the app, you can decide to go out and invite your friends without that “what are you up to?” text (I know you’ve sent those texts, don’t lie to me 😜). It makes getting out and being social that makes easier, because you have had plenty of Friday nights watching Netflix. All in all, huge improvements in the past few months!
very sketchy and creepy
I kept on getting messages for example, “Y/N, you were tagged in ((location)) on Mappen. Log in to see where your friends are hanging out right now ((link))” So of course I have never actually downloaded it before not until after my friends told me to. So this app kept on ‘spamming’ me with texts/advertisements about oh so-and-so tagged you in *my current location*. So I am just kind of creeped out how it knew my name and how it knows where I go to school, or where I live, because I never put any of that information in before. So I downloaded it AFTER to see what it was about and it pretty much knew my contact I put in my own phone without asking me like, “Can Mappen have info. in your contacts?” So as you can tell I deleted it amediantly. Because I just don’t want to accidentally expose some of my personal information or other peoples’. Just please be careful when you put in extra personal info. and always watch out if they already know stuff you never told them. Thank you.
Ive used this app minimally and whether the app store lets this go up or not is their choice. But lets get started about this useless, terrible of an app. The main point of this is to unite friends when theyre near eachother and even for safety reasons if say a parent didnt know where their kid may be. Ok is a text not enough? Like it takes two seconds to literally text someone you dont need a map to do so or else what would snapmaps be for, as well that applies to the safety concern. Furthe i have barely used the app because of the most infuriating part of the reason i downloaded it in the first place which was because of the text message of some random person on my contacts getting a text saying i got friended. Are you seriously that hungry for buyers? Ive gotten atleast 20 notifications of texts this week from random numbers of yours which is outrageous and no other app goes to this extent to get people to get their app. It was unfortunate as well i couldnt give this app a 0 star rating. Hope you loved this review.
An app for all!
Mappen is an interesting app, I would recommend it to all trying to make plans with friends over the summer, or to parents wanting to see what their child is up to during the day. This app us good to help kids when there board, kind of like when I am bored I go on there and I add to my status that I am board, and some friends will text me and we will have a conversation. The only reason this app got 4 stars was due to the frustration it caused when I was trying to figure out how the app worked. Overall it is a great app and it helped me hangout with my school and soccer friends multiple times this summer and because of that I would recommend this app to all. Thank you for reading my review!
Very dumb idea. :(
Don't ever text me again or i'll report you to the authorities and the app "Mappen" will be taken down from the app store for spam, illegal tracking, and an unsafe app. You have been spamming me constantly with texts even though I deactivated my account!!! This app has absolutely no reason to be on the app store. It's not social media, barely any people are even on this app but those who are, better get off of it. There are creeps in this world, lurking on Mappen, searching for vulnerable children. This app is a very bad app. You don't even get paid for running the app, Mappen makers. Someone could easily sue for a child easily being kidnapped. This app only allows you to be on it if you allow full location access. This means that if you don't allow them to ALWAYS see where you are at all times, then you can't use the app. Stupid app idea. Major, major safety issue.
Such a fun, interactive, and SAFE app!!!
Not sure what some of the fuss is about! This app is such a great way to interact with your friends all over. You can easily hit them with a “WYD” or “let’s meet up”. It’s also SO convenient for big group hangouts! All you have to do is invite people on the app, no need for giant mass texts with people who might not know each other, or texting loads of people individually. You can also directly message through the app. Love love LOVE this fun way of bringing people together for real face to face interactions :) really is a great way to facilitate technology to bring people closer. I’d recommend this app to everybody!!
The Best Way to Connect with Friends
I am obsessed with Mappen. It is really important to me to know my friends are safe and to let them when I’m nearby to hang out. It’s also extremely helpful for the friends that say they’re on their way over but haven’t left their house yet. It’s incredibly easy to use, only uses emojis, and resets every hour. It will ask you to add friends, which automatically sends them a text message when you add them. That’s helpful for adding new friends to Mappen, but I’ve found that a personal invitation is much better to connect with friends. Try it out for yourself and see how great it is.
Good app, deceptive practices.
Ok, I don’t usually write reviews, but I feel like I have to. I would have rated this 4 or 5 stars but the way they advertise it is scummy, deceptive, and just not morally correct. The way they get you on the app and get your friends/contacts on the app is they send you messages from people that they think you know saying that they tagged you in a photo, even though there isn’t a way to share photos in the app, and when you click the link they just take you to the app. I thought it was from Instagram but it was just for Mappen. There wasn’t even any pictures. The app itself would be much better is they didn’t try to trick people in to downloading it. Woah that’s a long review. Thanks for reading! Note to Mappen: I guarantee you know what you’re doing, so please stop. 🛑
Why are people complaining? (Or maybe I’m just dumb)
This app seems so good I have not used it yet but I can already tell that’s its a good idea for an app. People keep on complaining that they keep on receiving texts or notifications well...Have any of you guys tried turning notifications off? I mean if you’re so bothered by the texts or notifications just go to your settings and disable them it’s not hard...Try it! If it does not work then it’s pretty sketchy how you would still receive texts from random numbers and I think it’s a pretty devious way of slipping under the radar Notification wise.
Great for the family!
I used to use a different app to know where my friends and family were at, but it used too much of my battery. Mappen meets the same criteria (and more) without draining my battery. The new game feature is pretty entertaining to drop bombs nearby my family and friends...except somehow I keep losing. ;) The kids keep getting me before I can deactivate/remove/cleanup the item. Fun feature. It is also cool to recommend your favorite locations to friends and family. Great app, and very comforting to know that your friends and family are where they should be, when they should be.
I got this app after I got a random text saying that someone I knew had tagged me on their map. I then got another text saying that another one of my friends had tagged me as well. I didn’t really understand the app and decided that I didn’t really need it, as I had no use for it. I deleted the app but continued to get texts. They were all from various numbers that I did not know and they all said that ‘Me wants you to update your map’ or something of the sort. I don’t know how to stop these texts, I’m just hoping it will stop soon. P.S. For those of you who are having the same problem as me ((getting spam texts and such) I am editing my review I posted a day ago) if you get a spam text, reply STOP. When I did this I got another text back saying that I had been unsubscribed. I am hoping this is the end of the spam texts.
