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!

Ratings and Reviews
Just swipe to find like-minded women—or even make a new BFF.
Nice concept however it makes no sense to me to have to PAY to see who swiped. I understand the need to make money but at least offer a free period so people can see if it’s worth it especially with all the recent negative reviews. Especially when the navigation of the app leaves has so much room for improvement. Paying to spend to potentially “meet” someone leaves something to be desired. Feels like a beta app which I definitely wouldn’t want to pay for especially not $100 a year or $6 a week none of my credit cards have annual fees that high.
If I’m going to pay at least I would at least like to have the option to find people based on similar likes it seems to me it just sorts by whatever age group I select and throws them at me with most having no communities in common or just 1 and the 1 being we work lol.
Hey!!! Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. We have some great news, you can filter your card deck based on community interest! Just tap the top bar and filter based on who you want to meet! That should help! Also, check out folks quizzes and personality questions. :) more coming soon!
We recently published an article on Vinazine (you can read it on the ✌️tab in the app, it’s the one about why you should become a VINA VIP!) about why we have the similar design (double blind opt in for matching) as popular dating apps, as it really helps with the overall experience... would love to have your thoughts on it!
The introductory $6 week is the same price as latte, and is a great way to test it out, and the $100 is for a 100 year membership!! Maybe you’ll end up giving it a try, discovering your future bestie, and then you’ll spend hours and hours laughing and adventuring around the world and look back one day and say, “Best $6 I’ve ever spent!!” ... and that is priceless!
Thanks for supporting tech by women and for women!! XO Send is any other thoughts to 💌 email@example.com
Not many people and old profiles
I don’t think the girls in the app are serious about finding friends. Some girls in there are looking for “girlfriends” (like for a relationship) not “friends”. Also, if u make a match some never respond, so I’m guessing those profiles are old? If someone does talk to you they do it for a second and then they ask you to add them to Instagram because they are “bloggers” and need followers!
Also I run out of people to swipe lol. Most of other girls in there don’t share my interest, so maybe the app needs more marketing?
I’ve only meet one nice girl and we went for lunch.. we talk here and there because she’s busy with the boyfriend? So what’s the point lol!
