Good concept

We would like to use this instead of other social media platforms. This shows some real promise, but I’m concerned that it is
not accessible enough. You have to have an iPhone or Android to use it. Many youth don’t have a device yet. We need a web
version for those that only have a computer. A

Love it!!

I love this app! It is really helpful for young women’s because we can’t have a text group that big but we can with this app!
It makes it so much easier! Plus their is a lot of inspirational stuff on here that I love. The goal setting feature is also
really cool to help you keep up with your goals a

4 goal areas can be improved.

Under the “My Life” tab where you can create a goal, it would be better if they were color coated and organized by tabs -
Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical and Social. Currently you cannot see which of your goals is where unless you click on them.

Great possibilities

It is a nice app and I’m loving all the improvements. One improvement I believe that would help our ward a lot would be to
notify parents when an event has been added to a child’s circle. Not all our youth have phones so when an event is added to a
child’s circle it would be nice for the parents to

Everyone needs to download this so we can see how

Here’s the thing. Everyone ought to download and set up this application, and then set a few goals for themselves. Just like all
other social media applications, it’s power comes in the amount of people on the app. Right now, there aren’t a TON of people
using it, but it has an incredible potential!

Goals need a completed checkbox

I love this app for the kiddies. But I wish that the goals portion of “my life” had a checkbox that they could use to show
that they’d completed their goal.

Great app!

As a youth I find the app’s content awesome and I love using it! The only thing I wish it could do is display what people’s
posts on circles from my Lock Screen. But either than that minor thing I think this app’s amazing and I’d definitely recommend
it to my friends.
