"I think about my first VINA date, and remember that we have plans to hang out the next day. I tell my friend yes, she should use it. Yes, to women everywhere. What do you have to lose?" - PAPER Magazine
"Why shouldn’t you be using matching apps to increase your friend base? It’s no weirder than swiping right to find your next partner, after all." - NYLON Magazine
Hey! VINA is the Tinder for girlfriends. You can tap into wherever you are in the world (or in your life!) to meet new friends when you travel, move to a new city, transition life phases, or simply want to grow your social circle. Yay!
How Hey! VINA works:
— SIGN UP WITH FACEBOOK - we use this to confirm your gender and find people who you should know.
— TAKE QUIZZES - we use quizzes to find people who you’ll be compatible with.
— JOIN A COMMUNITY - Communities is a new way to meet people like you. Join a community to filter your card deck.
— SWIPE RIGHT TO MEET - Anonymously swipe to indicate who you want to meet right now. Yep, just like our friends over at Tinder.
— GET INTRODUCED - once you have a match, you get introduced to your new potential friend. We make it easy to meet with a personalized intro.
— MEET UP - Message with your vina to meet up in real life!
— KEEP IN TOUCH - Add your friends to your Vina List to group chat and more!
NEW: Read The VINAZINE on the app to get real life advice to navigate your social world and live your best life from real women just like you.

Great app but some bugs to be worked out!!!
I love the idea of this app. Especally for the area I live in, it is super hard to meet people outside of your work circle. So, excited to start meeting new friends! However, at one point it said that I had 106 heys so I was so confused with why I only had like 3 matches. I started swiping right on almost everyone and only got like 3 more matches. Then I looked at my "Heys" and I only had 46, so something is super buggy with the app. As well, I got a message from someone inviting me to go to an arts & crafts fair but it seemed like it was about a week late as the fair was the weekend before. Then I responded to the person and have received nothing back. Please fix the bugs!!!!!
I get a ton of PR/Marketing notifications for the extra content I don't care about; but, the app doesn't consistently notify about the one thing I do care about: the messages! I have to apologize or get apologies because neither of us have been consistently notified that a message was sent. Please fix notifications for messages and create an opt out for all the other marketing/add on content.
Excludes women who don't bother with social media
I'm really disappointed that I attempted to create my profile with this app only to find out that it requires you to have a Facebook. I find this whole attachment to social media as a method of verifying someone's identity kind of sad. Because I don't have a Facebook I don't exist, because I refuse to be apart of instagram I'm not worthy of being a member. It's pathetic, there should be other methods to verify someone's identity without imposing social media
