Ratings and Reviews



Very fun and addicting app. Each post and comment earns you points that you can use to buy gifts for your friends. You can talk to people from all over the world and those that are close by. Mods stay on to make sure everything is under control and users are more than happy to help with question. One user in particular loves casual messages with anyone that messages her. Jessica No Likey Dic loves random chat encounters from all guys though her name makes you think she doesn't. She uses that to see which guys are brave enough to talk to her and those who do never complain of the talks they have. This is definitely a must have app and she is definitely a user to hit up. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

App is behind


If you are stuck on the "Determining Location" screen, make sure your location services are turned on for the app. It won't work without it. Once inside it's a pretty basic app, with a world feed and messenger. I've made more than a few friends on this app, but the iOS version is by far the worst. You have to copy and paste emojis to use them in chat, you cannot send points or gifts. You cannot report or delete posts. And you have to scroll back to the top to move between the world feed and your watched posts. Over all, the app is awful. Giving five stars so my review will show at the top.

Best for finding friends and something more


Absolutely awesome. The regulars are great, if you are in vegas and want to party you must meet up with 702. Watch out for Dante I hear he's investing in a candy van, or maybe just going to write on the side walk. Make sure you read profiles before you go messaging perv stuff otherwise you could land yourself on "To Catch A Creeper" on the feed. In other words be polite to the ladies. Oh and all you closet boys loving boys you want to hit ups Zer0 *StFu0g0* for sure, he is the very dominant type. I used to spend my days on Facebook, now I rarely go there and spend my days on the feed on WNM.
