Pal is a new social networking app available for free on both Android and iOS devices.
Say you just moved into a new city and you don’t know anyone or you are looking for some new friends to hang out with. Well Pal is the app you should try. From the press release:
“Pal connects people in the neighborhood, based on their activities. From like-minded people who want to fulfill their New Year‘s resolutions in the gym to mom meet ups. A variety of categories make it possible to find others for almost all activities. The app is also suitable to expand the social circle, if the existing friends don’t have time again.”
Pal is an easy to use app and designed to help you get the info you need quickly. It provides a nice miminalist design, with a layout that is very intuitivve.
When you first start, you will need to setup an account. You can use Facebook, Google, or create a Pal account. You will then want to customize your profile. Some options are:
- About Me
The more details you provide the better you will be able to find matches and be found. The app allows you to customize what can be searchable on your profile. You have lots of control so you do not have to worry about privacy issues. After you finalize your profile, it is time to do some searching.
The app has five main sections:
- Home – where you can see all that is going on
- Chat – here you can message your pals
- Pals – a listing of your current pals and a place where you can search and invite more
- Search – search area
- Calendar – listing of your activities
To make this app useful you need to have some pals. The app developer is based in the UK and the app is slowly moving itself around the world. Right now I could not find any users, groups, or activities near me but in time that should improve as it user base grows. Now you can add and invite existing Facebook friends and of course others.
I like how the app is setup and the options it gives you. You can search for an individual, a couple, or a group. And you can find activities in the same format. So if you looking for a social networking app based on what you like to do and want to find others with similar interests, give Pal a try and help build up its online community.
