About this app

Your fave app for women's friendship! Swipe to meet new friends, join communities, take quizzes, & read awesome articles to live your best life.

"A few swipes later, I was addicted" - ELLE Magazine

"... finally the startup goddesses delivered" - Cosmopolitan Magazine

“For women who travel, or have relocated to a new city, a like-minded social circle is now quickly within reach.” - The New York Times

"I think about my first VINA date, and remember that we have plans to hang out the next day. I tell my friend yes, she should use it. Yes, to women everywhere. What do you have to lose?" - PAPER Magazine

"Why shouldn’t you be using matching apps to increase your friend base? It’s no weirder than swiping right to find your next partner, after all." - NYLON Magazine

You can tap into wherever you are in the world (or in your life!) to meet new friends when you travel, move to a new city, transition life phases, or simply want to grow your social circle. Yay!

How Hey! VINA works:
— SIGN UP WITH FACEBOOK - we use this to confirm your gender and find people who you should know.

— TAKE QUIZZES - we use quizzes to find people who you’ll be compatible with.

— JOIN A COMMUNITY - Communities is a new way to meet people like you. Join a community to filter your card deck.

— SWIPE RIGHT TO MEET - Anonymously swipe to indicate who you want to meet right now.

— GET INTRODUCED - once you have a match, you get introduced to your new potential friend. We make it easy to meet with a personalized intro.

— MEET UP - Message with your vina to meet up in real life!

— KEEP IN TOUCH - Add your friends to your Vina List to group chat and more!

The worst thing about this app is the fact that the push notifications are VERY hit or miss. I log on once in a while, swipe through some people, and then forget about it. When I come back to the app a few days/weeks later, I have messages I've never seen, and when I send messages back, they end up not being seen. It creates dead conversations. Recommend fixing notifications. The intent of this app great and it would be nice if it worked better.

The idea is fantastic, but the execution... not so much. The quizzes are meaningless and cant be taken seriously (ie inkblots and how you eat eggs?). Even if you ignore the quizzes and get right down to the actual searching, the settings are bugged. Mine is set to allow everyone from 20 to 56, no matter how many times I tried to changed it, and the notification settings would randomly turn on or off and I had to keep opening settings to fix them. Overall: needs work

Great concept, but there's a lot of bugs. App worked well for me for about a week, then suddenly it wouldn't load anything. I could still see message previews in my inbox, but couldn't open them because it said the conversation hadn't been loaded (despite me refreshing the page). I would still be notified about matches via push notification, but the automated first message wouldn't appear in my inbox (even though that person was added to my Vina list). Re-installed and can't even log in now.
