Ratings and Reviews
For finding fun family activities that keep our kids engaged, Hoop is terrific. We love how it surfaces outings that mesh just right with our schedules and budgets—everything from museum exhibits and craft fairs to classes in music, art and lots more.
I really want this app to be successful as I’m always looking for things to do with the kids but there isn’t enough on here. I’ve driven past two signs to local events today and neither were showing in the app. If the can get the volume then this would be the go to app but their researchers need to be scouring every local even website so we don’t have to. Maybe team up with local radio? Hope this app makes it. Giving it 5 stars even though it prob doesn’t deserve it just yet.
Developer Response ,
Hi Stu, firstly I’d like to apologise that we are missing out on great activities within your local area - we do have a team dedicated to finding fun activities for families nationwide but having information on activities that are more local is something that we are always trying to improve. We want Hoop to be the best resource that it can be for parents wanting to find unique activities within their local area. If you could contact us via email@example.com and provide us with the details of where we are missing out on crucial content we would love to hear from you as it feedback like this that not only helps to improve the app but also improves the experience of other local families using Hoop.
Great to find activities, filter by free/paid, distance, day/date and most importantly- child age for suitability.
Awesome with a new baby being able to find something to do last min. Locations also link with google maps so it’s really simple. You can also find something last minute.
Advertises you can filter by time but this doesn’t always appear to work as well unless app is restarted/ closed after use/ you search day in advance. Great app- I’ve told everyone about it!
