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!
— READ THE VINAZINE - read stories and advice to help you meet more friends, navigate adulting, and live your best life. Stories written by members of the VINA community for the VINA community.

The app is extremely glitchy. I bought the 6 month membership but the app did not reflect my membership and I could not access the paid features for weeks. I tried to contact the app and Apple and they were not helpful. They would not refund me my money. Even when I tried to use the app it would crash constantly. Not a fan, horrible customer service and inconsistent app usability. Don’t recommend. Save your sanity and definitely don’t get a membership.
The app is okay. Quite glitchy at times where I can’t login. Also mandatory to have Instagram or Facebook to sign up rather than just an email. There were times where I missed messages because I never got a notification that was recently fixed. I like the idea but the execution needs work.
This is a cool app but $6 dollar a week is insane, all of the price options r insane. I woulda did it if it were a lil cheaper. U would prolly get a lot more members if u lowered the prices just a lil & maybe offer a free trial period. Trying to find friends not find my soulmate
Hey Hey Vina!!! I really love you guys and the UI/UX is super cute. I have met cool friends in my new city. So big kudos for the amazing work. However, the google API stopped working for a while now!!! We can’t link our address to the event created. I have given the app full permissions for the location service so I am pretty sure that this is bug. Pls pls pls get it fixed for the next release!
I’m trying to communicate with other vinas, but it keeps on telling me if i have updated to the latest vina download which i have already, so it keeps on taking me to the app on the apple store and it’s already been downloaded. this only happens when j want to message someone. idk what’s going on. i’ve used it before and it was fine. never gave me trouble
I signed up and it said I was someone else???!?? That was crazy! Makes no sense if it makes you use your Facebook!?
I paid for 3 months and the app stopped working after 2 weeks
Whenever I try to create an event, it won’t let me put in the actual location. It automatically gives my current city and won’t let me change it. Their location search function also won’t work for me 🤦🏻♀️ It irks me to no end!
Initially I open this account with my Facebook profile. As of January 1, 2019 I decided to delete all forms of social media. Since then I have not been able to log into my account and there is no option to login via email. I met a 3 people. It does give the option upon opening the app to sign up FB or IG which I CHOOSE to have neither. It also says “sign up and get notified when we have an alternative”. It’s probably been like that since they first released the app and so I’ll ask, when exactly are they going to create an alternative??? I guarantee it’s been over a year since they’ve had that notification up there. And when they do, will it link up with my previous profile information? If by the end of the year they don’t have an email option, I’m just going to delete the app itself because it’s not worth having something taking up space on my phone that I cannot use. I’m glad it works out great for some though.
I love it! I made so many awesome friends! Can’t wait to make more! 😊
