App used to be good. Now hooked is allowing apartment complexes to advertise on a food and drink specials app. Convinced me to write a review based on how irrelevant this is for a good and drink app. 2 stars until this gets fixed. Let's all tell hooked what we want and don't want!
Such dope deals
Free food events are a joke Completely mismanaged events either at the restaurant level or at their level. I attended an event on 10th November. It was a 2-5 free pizza event at 1000 degrees in Virginia tech. The pizzas finished at 3:20 and people who had waited in line for hours had to leave empty handed.
I'm tired of showing up to restaurants that no longer accept the app, yet the specials are still updated. Also, Hooked continues to post specials for restaurants that have closed doors completely or are closed that day. Mismanaged to say the least.
Good app, but the UI can be bothersome I like being able to get free/discounted food, but some aspects of the UI make it a little annoying. Three times already I've hit the 'Use It Now' button while trying to read a discription of the deal or use the map. Having the button to confirm the deal right in the middle of the screen makes it hard to get around touching it if you want to scroll down. I've had to actually try to avoid hitting it while using the other functions of the app. Having it at the top or bottom would make much more sense.
Weak The vast majority of the deals on this app are either available elsewhere or not worth using. Their promos were embarrassing as they "ran out" after 30 min of their 2 hour window. Significantly lags behind other apps
