Description

Shapr is the easiest way to build meaningful professional relationships. Swipe for two minutes a day to meet your next business partner, discover new career opportunities, and meet helpful new friends in your city. Conversations started through Shapr have produced job opportunities, mentorship, successful investments and partnerships of all shapes and sizes. HOW IT WORKS Shapr combines your industry, work experience, networking goals, location and up to ten #interests such as #marketing or #UX to curate a daily batch of around 15 relevant professionals in your area. Simply swipe right on the professionals you want to meet. When a match is made, you can message within the app and set up a time to meet IRL over a cup of coffee or an afternoon Skype. This app is ideal for entrepreneurs seeking cofounders and ideas, professionals exploring career changes or building contacts within their industry, people new to a city seeking friends, and anyone who wants to break up their day by meeting or mentoring someone new!

  • Not worth the time ...

    Having used this app for the last 3 months, it pretty much a waste of time/effort. Very few people bother to connect and those that do reach out fail to respond when you follow up with them. I certainly wouldn’t pay for this - it’s proved to be a complete dud in terms of making any meaningful connections.

    I’m on my third day of using the app and am not impressed. The profiles being shown to me are not matching my interests whatsoever. The first day there was 4/5 with similar interests but since then nothing! Not even close
  • Trying to get started

    Seems like a cool idea for a networking platform! Unfortunately it’s only showing me people who are across the country, and there doesn’t seem to be any way to get help/report issues in-app.
  • Hamstrung by Location Services

    This app has potential. Unfortunately, they have still yet to fix the location services problem, where you only get matches from New York. They should implement a feature that just lets you manually choose your location. This would be very easy to program, and I think would help the app’s functionality, immensely. Showing only very far away people to a new Shapr user causes friction and is one of the primary reasons why this app won’t take off until that’s fixed.

  • Shapr lies about people swiping right on daily notifications

    For two days now, I’ve got something like “ Hey Carlos, at least 5 people have swiped right to meet you today.” bothe times i was skeptical because im not that cool or good looking. So, I swiped right for everyone just to test, and sure enought only 1-2 people swiped right. Not cool man. I felt betrayed.
  • Useless

    Everyone looking for jobs but no one looking to hire!!
  • UI bugs are obvious

    I have an iPhone 6S and have noticed a few UI bugs right away. The “upgrade to plus” ad is cut off at the top so I have to quit the app to get rid of it. I also noticed that I can’t edit my tags very well because they are also cut off. Other than the issues, I like the app and think it’s a cool idea.
  • Arbitrary limits

    By Arikï
    It’s very frustrating that they set this arbitrary limit of swipes. How are you to expect people to get value if you make it frustrating from the beginning to use. If can’t find value from the get go, why would I pay $X.xx for your premium services??
  • Horrible UX

    Horrible user experience. So many glitches. For the goals: I would select one and other ones would get selected. For the hashtags: most of the screen was covered by the keyboard and couldn’t figure out how to see all the hashtags I added. Also, I would try to delete them and it wouldn’t let me. Same for other inputs: I would input something and it wouldn’t save. Final straw was the brand ad (after swiping through all my daily connections) which didn’t fit my iPhone 7 screen so I could never exit.
