A great tool for meeting new people. The only thing I dislike about this app is that it forces users to use LinkedIn profiles to create accounts. Personally, I would rather not use my LinkedIn profile because I created my LinkedIn profile for a specific purpose that does not necessarily coincide with my reason for using Shapr. The Shapr app would be much better if it stood on its own without forcing users to use LinkedIn as a foundation. Other than that, I absolutely love the app.
The concept is good; however, the app doesn't enforce any community norms. People say they want to connect, but don't respond to messages. I'm not saying people should have to respond to everyone, but if the app detects a pattern of unresponsiveness it should start reducing access to contacts until behaviors fall within community norms. The app is only as useful as the behavior of its members.
Has potential but I keep getting contacts from 5, 8 hours away. The circle needs to be narrowed to maybe 30 miles radius. Also, I was under the understanding that this app was to connect with other entrepreneurs. Instead there are lots of people who are employees... General managers, electrical engineers, financial advisers, MLMs, etc.
Cool concept. I was excited at first but having to wait 24 hours to swipe 15 mediocre leads isn't that promissing. Give us the rush of Tinder and let us swipe through the whole directory! Charge a minimal fee for more swipe time, I don't care, just get me in touch with the potential people I want to network with. Stop holding us back from awesomeness!
Good concept but needs refinement. None of the suggested connections were remotely related to my industries. They all were completely unrelated even though I wrote a complete bio(many had no bio), linked my LinkedIn and selected a very diverse set of interests. Only 4 people were located within a 2 hour drive of me (Long Island, NY). There should be an option to select target geographical regions where you want to connect with people even if you are not there, or go global. Also, the app keeps putting my profile pic sideways and there is no option I see to correct it.
My first real attempt at networking. Amazing concept, suggested around 30 swipes per day... we shall see if and when it occurs. On day two and I already have a couple matches! excited to find a few mentors in my field.
Hello! We fixed an issue with photo uploading. Also, you can now leave the app by tapping "back" when in the main screen. Thank you for using Shapr!
