Editors’ Notes

Just swipe to find like-minded women—or even make a new BFF. 

Is my city the problem or the app?


I think it’s a bit of both. There clearly aren’t many women using hey vina in Philly bc the app keeps running out of vinas for my deck. The app itself is really glitchy and it took several times for my profile to actually save. This probably explains why so many women have generic profiles. My only rule is that I won’t send a “hey” to someone who hasn’t bothered to update their profile (or perhaps they have but the app didn’t save it - but how am I suppose to know that?). So this has really limited the potential friend pool. I also keep getting college kids in my deck despite the age filter, which makes me wonder what is the point of the filter? Finally, I also suspect that there are a lot of people who still have profiles up but who are no longer using the app (you can tell bc it seems that previously, the app created a generic profile for you that sounds like you’ve written in but it’s just based on what you selected for your profile quiz. Meaning, they’ve been on the app for a while). I don’t know if the developers send messages to people or deactivate after a bit but I suspect they don’t. Wish they would. I have 17 “heys” after a week but only one match and I have no more vinas in my deck so I’ll probably never get connected to any of the remaining 16. So far, I’m pretty disappointed. Giving it a couple more weeks but then I’m deactivating if the situation doesn’t change.

Hey!! Can you shoot us an email so we can look at your account? We have tons of vinas in Philly! Also, on the filter thing! Check to see if you have unspecified or novelty ages checked, that can get people in your deck who are outside your range. If people who haven't filled out their profiles yet (like they're brand new!) edit theirs, they'll come back into your deck. We're aware of the profile bug, and a fix is coming out suuuuper soon!! Thanks for being an awesome part of the VINA community! 💌hey@heyvina.com

Heys vanished? App needs work


In a period of 6 months I got 22 heys and couldn’t see who did any them... seeing them alone would have been mega helpful! I could have had so many conversations with potential friends. Instead it’s the longest unnecessary wait to see if you get a match which could take a life time. Do you really think women who work and have lives have time to wait for someone to swipe yes on them or spend hours, days,weeks, or months trying to find a match? The answer is no. A simple solution would be to see who heys you so that once someone heys you, you can see it and then have the option to hey them back and message/ get a conversation started! Please make the messaging feature more accessible so that people can actually have a chance at making friends. This app is more like an aggravating life long teaser that is more of a headache than helpful. Also another major complaint is that after my 22 heys- they all disappeared for no apparent reason.
Why are my heys gone??? App developer can you give me an explanation?

What the heck is this? Please please please consider changing this. This app has so much potential but messaging needs to be much easier.

Developer Response

Hey Bpants! We're going to add some features to allow you to see those heys and have a faster experience, we know that in areas that are less dense it can take sometime, and we want you out there hanging out in the real world with new friends, ASAP! Your stats should be back, so let us know if you're still seeing anything weird there. Thanks so much for sharing your frustration, we're always available via email too! XO 💌 hey@vina.io
