Only friends you add can see you on the map. Add friends you know IRL and you can stop sharing at any moment.

Show friends what you're doing with two taps, and see what everyone else is up to. Update your emoji status so friends know if they should hit you up, text you to meet up for food, or drop by while you're watching Netflix.

Friends should look out for each other. Check your map after getting together to see that friends got home safe.

We'll let you know when your best friend is getting close so you two can meet up.

We put over 50 years of combined engineering experience into minimizing Mappen's battery usage.

Go “invisible” to hide your location when you need extra privacy. You can choose to hide from one friend or everybody depending on the situation.

Our VoIP calling feature lets you call your friends to finalize plans. This works over Wi-Fi, even if you don’t have a cell connection.

Mappen right from the getgo, lets you know what it’s all about, right upon startup of the app. The message to connect with yours friends anywhere. Additionally, the signup process is one of the most painless streamlined signups for social media and it’s even easier with an Instagram profile. Now once you get to the actual map screen, you’ll notice the UI of this app is very minimal and it’s creates a great user experience as there are not many buttons to accomplish what needs to be done. Whether inviting your friends to a pizza trip, or inviting some news friends to the app.

Very spammy.


I tried this app with my fellow friends and their parents. We thought it was going to be a fun app that can help us with our busy and social lives. I was very disappointed though. This app decided to send a text to all my contacts. Not one time, but many times. It spammed me and my friends, and even my friend’s parents. I can not believe this happened. This app did it without my permission and it angered me and my friends. I might have even lost some of my friends because they were made at me. This is no joke. If you fix this, I will think about downloading the app again, but only if you fix this. Please listen to me. I really want to this app to be successful. Thank you for listening and please do something! It will be for the best.

Hi Natamoo2221 - thanks for your feedback - we want to get to the bottom of this. Mappen does not send texts to people's contacts without the user asking it to. If something on Mappen isn't working right we want to track it down and fix it. Can you email us at so we can get more information about what you experienced? thanks!

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.
