Ratings and Reviews
Ding Dong is fun, but not for everyone.
Ding Dong has ended up being a fun app that I have already suggested to friends. It is similar to Snapchat, but has a few more cool features to it. You are able to see where your recipient is at the moment, and how far away they are. You can also give the picture they send faces from the emojis! I thought this was fun. A few things that the app could fix, however, is being able to let us clear our activity feed (it gets a little annoying) and let us write out our messages before the picture sends. Also, the creators could make the app a little more organized. The reason why I say that this app is not for everyone is because of safety issues. You can easily find out where someone lives with this, and if a small child doesn't know any better, it is a recipe for disaster. Other than these few things, I see Ding Dong becoming a successful app and many great reviews coming its way.
I guess I liked the idea of this app. But for me. The map thing kind of sketches me out a little bit. Because if I'm chatting with a random person, or even a friend. I'm not sure if I want them to know EXACTLY where I am. Whoever made this had good intentions in mind. Just needs a little cleaning up.
Also. If we are going to be able to look on a map. And see where people are I wouldn't mind having the ability to look for people 'nearby'. Unless it's already a feature and I haven't been able to find out how to work it
I liked it. Needs LOTS more people though
Simple app that solves your problems.
If you ever get frustrated texting / telling your friends about where exactly you are, this app is the best solution to that!
If you are late to a meeting and you don't want to type up the whole "Sorry I am late, be there in 5 mins" story, this app is the best answer to that!
If your lovely grandmother gets lost and she just can't seem to pronounce that street name in French, this app is the best saver for that!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
