Despite everything, the modern world remains a lonely place, where it can be hard to find intelligent conversation and friendship. The School of Life app helps you track down people with whom to have deeper, more meaningful connections. We bring together like-minded people from around the world based on shared cultural and intellectual interests.

You can search for people near you for a one-to-one chat, join the community conversation or just view our latest ideas in a selection of videos and articles.

The app is very simple to use: simply download, take a few minutes to set up your profile with the topics and interests that are important to you – and start to connect. You can edit your profile, search and notification settings at any time.

Good beginnings with lots of potential


This is definitely a new favorite app of mine. In just one day I've had better, more intriguing and more insightful conversations than I ever had on Tinder or other dating/social network apps. In fact I wouldn't even call this a dating app. There's very little emphasis on anything except your personality and interests, and that's lovely. The community is genuinely different than on other apps which surprised me, since I expected it to just be another Bumble. I especially love that there's no distance limit if you want, so you can talk with people all over the world.

Some negatives: there are a few bugs that are minor, but I expect those to be worked out in due time. Only real complaint is that sometimes the chat feature won't send my messages (comes up with an error saying something like This Message Was Not Delivered), and I have to close out of the app and restart to get it working again. This happened 3 or 4 times over the course of an hour chatting with people, so it's pretty noticeable. I think it occurs when the other person sends a message while you're still typing, but don't quote me on that.

Overall this is a really great app if you haven't had success on other apps meeting people or you just want something of a different flavor. I'll update with 5 stars if they get the chat running a bit smoother. So happy that TSOL made this!

I love this idea/company


I want to support this idea and what this company does so I absolutely give it 5 stars. However, I want to help improve the app so I’m writing this review to help the developers with some issues I’ve run into.
1. I post a comment on a topic or conversation: the comment shows up just fine, but on my screen it displays my comment with the name of another person/picture as the writer of that comment.
2. There is no help option or contact in the app(that I could find).
3. It would be cool if the app used the information we placed in our profile to match us with similar profiles for purpose of conversation. (Right now I don’t think it uses any AI to collect that information and match with similar profiles)
I’ve only used the app for about 30 minutes and that is all for now. Like I said, I love the purpose of this idea and I love the movement that this company is producing. Thank you for what you’re doing!

Good beginning could use improvements

I like the overall premise. The conversation starter topics are good. But the current design makes it very difficult to maintain a conversation. You make a comment or scroll through existing comments to make a reply - that in itself can be a bit daunting as there are often hundreds of initial comments. And then you get notifications in your inbox when someone likes your reply or comment or responds. Unfortunately, it is really difficult to get back to that spot. Clicking on the link in the inbox only takes you back to the top of the conversation thread. You have to scroll through hundreds to get back to where you were. Can make conversations laborious.
It would also be nice if people were keyword searchable so you you could search for people in your area or with certain interests. The more people join, the more that scrolling seems endless as well.
