Hey! VINA is the social discovery app just for women. You can tap into wherever you are in the world (or in your life!) to meet up with friends when you travel, move to a new city, transition life phases, or simply want to grow your social circle. Friend finding made safe, easy, and fun. Yay!
How Hey! VINA works:
— SIGN UP WITH FACEBOOK OR INSTAGRAM (new) - we use this to confirm your gender and find people who you should know.
— TAKE QUIZZES - we use fun and festive personality quizzes to help you find people who you will be compatible with
— JOIN A COMMUNITY - join a community to find friends who specifically like what you like and live like you live
— SWIPE RIGHT TO MEET - anonymously swipe right to indicate who you want to meet right now, and swipe left to skip people you're not ready to meet or aren't interested in
— GET INTRODUCED - once you have a match, you get introduced to a new potential friend. We make it easy to meet with a personalized intro from Olivia from VINA.
— MEET UP - Use our handy Plans feature to post a private invite to meet up or make a public invite to invite everyone in your area to join... the most important part is meeting up IRL!
— KEEP IN TOUCH - you can add your matches and facebook friends to your VINA List to group chat, make plans, or all kinds of stuff.
— BECOME A VIP - match faster and easier by upgrading to VINA VIP! You can now upgrade with a paid subscription to preview who swiped right on you... more premium features to come soon, too!

I promise that you'll never find another like V
I know that I’ve got updates baby, uh
I know I over think before I swipe
And you're the kind of friend the ladies want
And there's a lot of cool chicks out there
I know you need to update your phone
I never leave well enough alone
And trouble's gonna follow if you don’t you know
And there's a lot of cool chicks out there…
But I promise that you'll never find another app like... VINA!

Ratings and Reviews
Have patience y’all!
First of all, the app is FREE. Don’t want to pay for the extra features? Don’t’! Nobody is making y’all! No wonder some of y’all don’t have friends you’re stubborn and ungrateful lol The developer of the app need to make their money too! I for one find the app very interesting. After downloading it last night I already matched with someone and we’ve been chatting. I feel like this app is brilliant and has soo much potential. You can plan dates, it even GIVES you IDEAS for dates, horoscopes and cute quizzes to take. Mind you, the. App. Is. Free. It’s also beautifully designed. Ive only dreamed of an app like this but never knew there was such a thing. One thing I will say is that it would be great if the app had more promotion like an add on Instagram, Facebook or even a commercial to get more people to use it. However so far I’m grateful and look forward to meeting new friends. Thank you developer for caring about us women that find it hard to make friends! You definitely took your time with this one 💕
- One thing I did notice is that blocking someone doesnt work?
- Also, there is no block list so you cant even go to see who you’ve blocked/ unblock someone (if blocking them was an accident).
~ Example: it showed me my Facebook friends who are also on vina. I simply wanted to block one bc even tho I have her on Facebook I dont want her as my vina or for her to see me on there. I want NEW friends. So I blocked her (or so I thought) but when I go to the “add vinas” section on my profile SHE IS THERE under Facebook friends. I shouldn’t even be able to see her. I go to click on her profile to block her and my finger slips and I make her my VINA.. but no biggie I’ll just undo it, right? I go to her profile to block her and it gives me the option to..It will kick you off their profile like you’ve successfully blocked them but they are not really blocked. ~
- ALSO would be nice to see all the “Hey’s” you sent. To also have the option to take back our “hey” would be great too!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for reporting this and sharing your feedback! Sent this to our engineers and we are looking into issues with blocking ASAP!
If you have any other thoughts or feedback please feel free to email you firstname.lastname@example.org
Has Potential Just Not Fully There Yet
I downloaded this app, but it seems confusing to use. I’ve done all the quizzes and tried to meet people, but it’s just not working for me. I’ve only gotten a few matches and I would say most of these profiles are inactive. I actually saw one of my friends being listed as in my area when I know she moved to another state a year ago, so the app isn’t keeping track of people’s locations. I also saw another girl who was here last year for an internship and moved away after that period. There’s also not enough pictures of the people so I don’t know if they are real or fake accounts. I’ve had on and off issues logging into my account. Also it seems like people on here just want to chat and aren’t interested in actually meeting up. I’ve talked to about 7 or 8 people and tried to get conversations going. I even said to multiple people I’m interested in meeting and they just say they are, then nothing really comes out of it when I actually ask to meet up. Disappointing app. Probably going to delete it soon.
