  • Features hidden behind paywall

    So, it’s an interesting concept, except 90% of what you want to do with the app is hidden behind paying for a subscription. They’ll tell you that you can message your matches, but unless that person actually subscribed, they’re not going to be able to respond to your swipe. You’re better off using other networking methods unless you have the ability to pay for it. You can set up your account and interests, but if anyone swipes right on you, you are unable to respond unless you subscribe. Most of the users aren’t going to pay the $20/month just to maybe get a match that meets their standards. At least you can view their linked accounts, so if you do use the free version, make sure to link your third party accounts.
  • Expensive

    For an app that’s clearly still growing the subscriptions they are asking for is a rip off.
  • Not for blue collar

    This apps isn’t for people who work with their hands who are looking for better opportunities.
  • Pointless if you get the free version

    By Shadowluminaire
    Mostly men on the app, so hard to find fellow women to network with. Also you get matched in other cities, so you don’t get mostly local matches. The matches I did get totally flaked. I only used the free version. Don’t bother.
  • Lot of room for improvement

    Hello, I am using this app to connect people. But I come across any random people who are not matching the criteria I am looking for. Then I have to pay to see who swiped me right. That is discouraging.
  • App w/ Potential? Not too sure

    2
    By Auckstosuck
    App has potential, but decides to charge you before even using it effectively. Before i even figure out how to sort out my interests and match with the right prospects - they decided to place a pay wall on my profile. As a digital marketer, they fail to first reel you in with the value that this app can have. I.e. first allow user to use it with all features for x amount of days, once you see that you have effectively used this and even started networking successfully, then i may be more inclined to pay for the subscription. Offer value for free- then someone may be more inclined to pay for it! Really simple guys! After seeing many of the same complaints it seems management are not interested in really becoming the leader in networking apps available for businesses. Unfulfilled potential in my eyes
  • Seriously annoying notification bug

    By aaron.uscilla
    When I get a new match I have to click on the match, close the app, restart the app, anything to get the notification go away. As someone who hates having notifications on their home screen it’s seriously annoying.

    I just paid for one month subscription. Still can’t use the features. Does this take time to activate ? Kindly respond ASAP
  • Upgraded, but don't get all advertised features.

    By Andy Lambrecht
    Interesting app, but I upgraded to be able to see who swiped right. I don't get this feature or rewind or unlimited search features after paying 6 month upgrade.
  • They want $ more than they want to be useful

    By EmmaspopNYC
    Getting no results from this app. Limiting the number of swipes per day is pointless, other than trying to get $$$ out of you. Or maybe there just aren’t enough users. The one person who actually proactively contacted me lives nowhere near me.
  • In app purchases

    1
    By Lalalalaizzzzzzz
    Are way too overpriced. Can’t even swipe right or message people without forking over a significant amount of money. Pass.
  • Don’t let this app fool you..

    1
    By Tmkpnhfr
    You absolutely have to pay to use this app in any real capacity. They give you about 5 swipes and then make you pay for more, or wait 5 hours. The app is completely gimped by that paywall. There is no actual use for this app unless you pay.
  • Not recommended for people looking for jobs

    1
    By IGotTheMoney
    People who put ‘hire employees’ are headhunting other talents through people who are looking for jobs, and people who are looking to connect and network, very few are really talented and looking to share and discover what other individuals are capable of, which I could have easily find it on any other social platforms that do not require me to fork out a substantial amount of money to just network
  • From my experience no one on this app is serious

    1
    By Volt467
    I have been using this app for well over a year and I have made so many connections and none of them are serious about doing business. I would say just use LinkedIn.
  • We need more

    By Mettlind
    This app has wonderful potential, however, the in-app purchase is too forced. Having connections with professionals in the field is a wonderful thing and we shouldn’t have to pay $20/month (Which is absolutely absurd) just to send one message to a professional who swipes right on you. Also, you only get 12 swipes per 24 hours or so and you even count the X’ed swipes which is also bad. In a world where individuals are only trying to better themselves, you are forcing us to pay for this app when it’s inconveniencing us badly. Your UX/UI for Mobile is frustrating because it gives us no valuable inspiration aside from a quote that is way too large and then another forced ad to buy your PRO version. I want this app to succeed, but you need to fix a lot of things in order for that to happen.
  • Very restrictive, some accounts seem fake

    2
    By MaddyB511
    I don’t like how you only get to see so many profiles per day. Also, many of the accounts I’m shown seem fake... I would be careful about putting personal social media’s on the account because of this. Also, there are rarely people from my area on this app. Great concept but it still has flaws
  • Nice app

    By lightwarrior101
    This app works kind like Tinder and Bumble except it’s for making professional connections or those you have a mutual interest in a particular field. The free version allows you to swipe on about fifteen profiles a day. If you and another person swipe left, then it’s a match and you’re able to communicate. The negatives don’t have anything to do with the app itself, but the people that create profiles. I’ve mistakenly swiped on a mutual match who is suddenly sales pitchy or persistently how they can offer their services to me. Um...I never said I was interested in buying anything from you buddy. Those profiles get a quick block and unmatch. I’m here to network and get to know like minded people not have a bunch of people spam me and try to make me buy their products. That’s not how to sell.
  • Money grabbers

    Tinder like app which tries to charge you money to from the first time you try to swipe right on connections.
  • Confusing

    Could not have enough time to learn and here they charge. Uninteresting profiles.
  • Great app, but a few glitches

    3
    By carlkennyc
    I’ve met some great people on the app since joining last year. My only flag is that there are a few tech glitches. The most annoying is that the same person appears in my results daily, whether I ‘like’ them or not. No issues with the person - she seems lovely. But I would love to ‘meet’ someone new.
  • LinkedIn for 2019

    4
    By a 20 something professional
    It’s described to be like Tinder for Professionals. In essence, it’s a LinkedIn updated for 2019, encouraging connection and networking between peers in different industries with similar interests. I’m enjoying it so far, and recommend that you try it out. I’ve already started talking to several different people, and feel energized to network more actively, given that my primary experience doing so has been through conference events. Which I love, I do enjoy meeting new people, but I also have to recharge from for weeks after (introvert probs). This gives you 10-ish matches to look from per day, and you can connect or not. But it doesn’t overwhelm with choices, and sets you up to be able to grow your circle without the introvert exhaustion from peopling in quantity and sorting everything out yourself. Love it.
  • Garbage App

    1
    By BoneheadBono
    Limited to 12 swipes every 5 hours. They want to charge you $20 a month for unlimited swipes. All just to meet a whole bunch of people looking for a new job too. Truly useless and a cheesy interface. Garbage just like Tinder.
  • Needs a free 30 day trial

    By Je Keith
    I don’t like the fact that there is an immediate paywall for me to use this app in its entirety. I really like the concept, but I don’t want to just spend $20 in hopes that I might like it.
  • Pricey

  • Keeps Asking For Account Info

    Good app, but every time I open it, it asks me to give the account initialization details (name, interests, etc.) before I can proceed. I already gave them!

  • App is sorta buggy and parallels Tinder

    3
    By Thisisjennings
    No matter how many times I save my information, including bio (which I know works because it allows me to go through the swiping process and have gotten results so I know the profile is live), it makes me go through and save it all again every time I open the app. I think it walks a fine line between professional and dating/social focused app, and through the interface and types of selling points, often veers further into the dating/social side. This may work for some, but I think it could do better for professional networking.

    By Tējh
    So far this app does not seem to be a great avenue to network. It presents good potential but your only able to see 10 possible contacts every 10-20 hrs. Why not just use LinkedIn and view as many potential networking possibilities as you want?
  • Has potential

    By cougarfan33
    I wish the connections were more region specific. I swipe through the list and only one or two are within my state. Also, I understand the purpose of the limited number of swipes, but I dislike it.
  • Great idea/poorly executed

    1
    By BCK781987
    It’s a great idea, but the execution of it isn’t great. With things like meetup and LinkedIn, I’m not willing to pay for things I can do free on those platforms.
  • Not sure

    Got a message and replied but as soon as I changed an interest they were gone, so now my first connection is gone.
  • A tease

    By Target180
    TLDR: the “matching” algorithm doesn’t “match”, then they ask for your money to make it “match.” The concept is great but it seems like nothing else but a money-making scheme for the developers. You get 15 random “matches” a day - and they do seem very random; more than half of them have nothing to do with my industry and the rest are other people in my industry who are looking for jobs just like me. Then the push notifications- “someone wants to hire you, give us $20 to find out who it is” is the gist of it. To actually *search* for people who may be valuable to network with, you also have to pay for that. I will give it some more time to see if the algorithm improves, but the manner in which they manipulate users has put me off of ever paying.
  • Free version gone

    By Swfrost
    Not that it was really all that great but the free version is gone so don’t even bother downloading. Deleting. Did make a couple of business connections but mostly just people trying to get you to join their MLM or buy something.
  • I like the concept, but noticed a few bugs

    3
    By sad sad mannnnn
    Bugs #1 When I’m adding my interests, some of them float to the right and are not visible, making me unable to see or remove them. #2 Whenever I click on anything that brings up the pop up for buying the pro version, there is no way to close the pop up, forcing me to close the app. I’m disappointed that you cannot add your location with the free version. The app is basically non-functional if you cannot find people near you. 14/15 of my swipes today were people out of state, it’s not practical to drive that far or ask someone else to drive that far, and meeting in person is important to me as opposed to video chat. It would be awesome if you added some geolocation features to the free version, I understand that you need to incentivize the pro version, but maybe you could shoot for something like 3 people in my area per 15 swipes with the free version, and 10-15 for the paid version. Other than that, I love the concept and it will be a great tool for meeting others with similar interests, networking, and career building. -Christian

  • Needs Growth

    By Bean Witch
    Shapr has so much potential. I wish it allowed you to upload more images of your work, because it would be a great feature for visual careers. The description isn’t long enough for users who have a wide variety of skills and multiple projects to offer. It’s also strange that the number of swipes are rationed, if you don’t pay for premium. I hope the app grows more users, because there is currently a very small pool to pull from.

    Love the concept of the app but it keeps matching me with people I didn’t swipe and match with??
  • So far I’ve only found people trying to sell me something

    By Ivimaiden
    I’ve used this app for a month now, so far the only people I’ve met are interested in getting me into their pyramid scheme or convert me to their religion. I don’t know whether it’s only me or if this happens to all people. I’ll continue checking out this app and see whether I can find someone who’s actually worth networking with. So far sales seems to be the main thing going on everywhere.

    By Rubiric1xzzy
    The idea of this app sounds great. But the free version is basically useless. You do not get any type of use from it unless you pay. Just a heads up for anyone looking for free app to network this is not it.
  • Amazing app for networking!

    As an introvert, it’s very hard for me to go out and actively talk to people and because of this I’ve started reaching out to more people via social media and things of the like. Shapr has alllowed me to explore a platform which enables me to meet new people who have similar goals and interests, and actually act upon our connection through voice calls, video calls, coffee meetups, etc. Everything is really simple, too. You fill out basic information about yourself and from there you can add goals and tags relating to your interests. From there, Shapr sends you a batch of people based on your goals and interests. You swipe right if you’d like to meet with a person, and left if you’d prefer not to. Think Tinder and LinkedIn in one app.
  • Wow!

    I got a paid summer internship from this app. I was able to eventually connect this individual on LinkedIn and DM’d him my resume. Without this shapr app, there is a 100% chance I would have not known about this. The opportunities are endless.
  • Not too bad

    It's a great way to connect with folks. The only problem is that it always says I have a notification when I don't and get frustrated not knowing when I do and don't. Can you fix this please??

    I shouldn’t have to pay to LOOK for a job. Obviously something isn’t working out right here. ...I don’t have money...I need money to look for a job... I need a job to have money. Terrible model.
  • Not too sure about this

    2
    By jazzy.016
    I just started using Shapr. And first off, to search someone and then connect with whoever appears under the search results you must pay for the app. The next thing is that I’m unsure how many of the people on the app are using it for its intended purpose which is to find jobs, not find dates. So I think it’s slightly tricky/ can get unprofessional very quickly unfortunately.
