Total scam
by Tigerlillym on 2020/12/04 07:08
I purchased a year subscription of Hobnob for various parties I planned to throw. I cancelled the subscription because I didn’t end up using it as much as I thought I would but I still have until September 2021 to use it because I paid upfront for a year. When I go to login now it says “oops there is a problem, try again later.” I try again “later” and find the same problem. For days now. I know I have my login correct. They won’t let me login to use a service I have paid for. I’m assuming because I cancelled? No clue. I updated the app. I attempted to contact customer service but can’t get that to work either. Too stupid. Don’t get tricked like I did.

by Khris P on 2020/11/17 01:41
I am extremely disappointed with this app. I made invitations for a small get together for my birthday and it will not allow me to add my apartment number. It says address doesn’t exist. Will not recommend.

Best Invitation App
by PauPauIliana on 2020/10/31 16:45
I have been using this app for years. In our modern world where we now use technology for everything and all live busy lives. This app allows you to keep all those invited to all your events informed with any changes and updates needed. The options to decorate your invitations are awesome, great variety of colors and an entire online ideas and boards to help.
Simple, sleek event app

Big Time Saver & Beautiful Invites
by LidKz on 2020/10/06 01:30
I’ve used this app for almost two years now. I look forward to any excuse to send invites for Here.Would love to be able to send a thank you to guests from this app. But I know that’s way overboard. The app does an amazing job, easy to use, can make your own invites are use premade templates. Just a lifesaver.

Deleting my invite
by Timjaaz on 2020/09/29 22:26
In the middle of me sending out invitations it’ll delete my invite without me agreeing. My guests can’t RSVP. And I PAID this is really ghetto and it shouldn’t be this hard

by Oddly7 on 2020/09/27 17:46
I like it! I’ve been using it for 2 years. There are 2 people in my contacts who never get the invite. But other than that, I’ve used it to host at least 10 parties. I don’t care for the predesigned flyer. I make my own and upload them. The flyers do need to be a certain size 1080px x 1920px. I like the Zoom meeting link option that was added. I would like for it to have a thank you note option that is similar to the invite. I thought it had automatic photo request option. But that didn’t occur after my last party.
FREE version is VERY limited
by ACGreen90 on 2020/09/24 20:05
I like the options for creating an invite, but when I finally found the invite I liked and sent it— I was told I needed more credits to get it out to my entire list. The free version is EXTREMELY Limited and the paid for version is too expensive. For a regular person that doesn’t host events as a professional, this is a bit too much to commit to for a decent e-vite. I probably won’t use it again for my future event planning needs.
Easy to use and great designs

App keeps kicking me out
by Kimmy😄 on 2020/09/17 14:41
For some reason the app keeps kicking me out. I’ve deleted it at least three times. I’ve restarted my phone - same issue. I can’t get my guest lists completed because every 1-2 guests I select - I get kicked out.
User friendly!!
by Momma KJK on 2020/09/17 14:18
This app with the 12 th one I downloaded before found one that would be easy to use when tech challenged & under stress. My mom had passed away and I just couldn’t focus, needed to get invites sent quickly so doing them electronically was my only option. I was very suprised at how much work the app did for me and only cost me several bucks! I received tons of compliments on the final product and couldn’t have been happier with with end result!! Thank you Hobnob😊

I downloaded Hobnob to help coordinate a pre-recorded virtual surprise 60th birthday party for my dad. I was using Vidday for the video and Hobnob for the invitation. I LOVED how easy to use Hobnob was, as well as the extensive selection of cards. I chose the “football stadium with blinking lights” as my dad is a sports lover. It was awesome! The invitation was incredibly easy to share via the provided link, and I even embedded the Vidday link within the Hobnob invitation. I was also very loquacious and I appreciated not being limited! Thank you for such an incredible app! It truly made the difference in my dad’s party!

Omit the time of event?
by NeilandSara on 2020/07/12 17:33
I am unable to remove the time of the event..I only want it to say “July 29-30”. Also do not like that the details don’t show up on the image unless you click on it? I just want all the info on the image..no clicking necessary. Photos are pretty but I had to use a different app to make my Invite. Did not like this one at all.
Excelent

Has major kinks
by nicoleki91 on 2020/07/05 16:11
I like the idea of hobknob and how easy it is. However, majority of the time, the app doesn’t work! I had people who RSVP “yes” for the app to suddenly change them to “no”. The guest count is never correct. I have over 30 people who have RSVPd “yes” and my guest count currently says only 4 people have RSVPd “yes”. So many glitches.

Convenient, thoughtfully designed and constantly updated 💯
by Hiro Protagonist 😶 on 2018/07/06 03:37
I don't usually write reviews but I'm consistently surprised and delighted by Hobnob and I wanted to share. I've used Hobnob a bunch over the past few years and although the app had some weird quirks earlier on, it has been rock-solid lately. I can see from my app updates that it's constantly updated and each release seems to improve it's stability as well as add cool new features. (I love the new video invites!) This app is, put simply, a huge time saver. The interface is simple and straightforward but well-designed and functional. The few times I've had issues I've written into their support and their friendly, understanding support staff is helpful and and they get back to me quickly. I paid for it, and I'm glad I did. It keeps me organized and makes me look good to my guests. It's not spammy or riddled with ads like evite and it's a way better value than paperless post. I'd rather pay a few bucks for a high quality app than look like a cheap-o sending spammy, ugly looking invites for my events. Thanks Hobnob!
An App to Celebrate
by kevnJen on 2017/09/23 19:20
I was notified by my good friend on Wednesday that his last day to meet with friends before taking a new job would be the upcoming Friday. With just two days notice Hob Nob allowed us to not just create an invitation but allow invitees to share memorable photos of their friend and colleague. Hob Nob gave us a great avenue to track head count of who was coming which also helped us prepare for how much food we would need and adequate space for the attendees. The great selection of options for invitation design made it quick and simple for this "non tech old guy" I highly recommend this app. The thing I most appreciated was being able to post photos from the actual party for all those who attended or could attend to enjoy! Thank you for helping us send off our good friend with style. Kevin and Jennifer Keyes
Great app for planning social events
by Hoping to be pregnant soon on 2020/03/03 03:22
This app is great! It sends invitations, and automatically sends reminders to the guests 24 hours before the event and again 1 hour before. It really takes the follow-up on getting RSVP's to the next level too by making it simple for people to reply. In today's world, where almost everyone has a smart phone and uses texting to communicate, it's the ideal way to plan a party! I literally had guests RSVPing the same day I sent the invitation out!! The reason it gets 4 stars instead of five is because it wouldn't let me add contact information directly to the app (it had to be imported from my phone's contacts or a linked list), and it also has a handy chat feature BUT it required guests to download the app in order to correspond with me (which several guests didn't want to do). I ended up ammending the invitation with my personal contact info for those who needed to connect and did not want to install the app. Overall, a great app well worth the small fee if your guest list is large enough to outgrow the free number of invites!
Hated it
by CRICKETRENE on 2019/09/23 13:41
Had the worst experience. It was confusing to alooot of my guest. Nobody read the text notification correctly. I couldn’t resend the invite for folks who lost the invite text msg in their text. So I had delete and resend again. There was no link where I could ask for guest to only bring one guest with them. I had to type that specific instructions in the details which nobody new was below the actual invite. They didn’t know that they had to scroll down to see the details. When I sent updates, the updated text msg only allowed people who downloaded the app to view it. Nobody wants to HAVE to download the app. I couldn’t message specific guest through the app like I can using Evite. It was just not all worth using for me. The only thing that drew me to the app was the motion invites. This app had a very nice selection but not functional at all to me and pretty much allll of my guest. I had to do a lot more of texting people individual updates or just the invite itself because the app wasn’t helpful with that AT ALL. Made my wedding planning extremely hard! Then I tried to leave my review on the app to why I didn’t like the app and the send feedback button wouldn’t work
So Close
by Kiwi2141 on 2018/11/14 05:43
Hobnob does a lot of things well, and my favorite part is the fact that you can send invites through text message because it’s faster and more interesting than sending them via email. BUT there are some bugs that I’m hoping get addressed soon. Picture management is a challenge. After I upload photos, they display in “random order” and definitely not in the order I selected. That’s confusing to invitees. Also, it’s not obvious whether or not you can download and save photos (I assume you can but I haven’t figured it out yet). It would be super cool if you could also add video clips in the same storage area. Also, the app doesn’t update when people respond to invites so it feels very clunky at times... I have to close and re-launch the app just to get it to display the right number of RSVPs. Overall, I like Hobnob but would have to see a lot of improvement to stay loyal. On the plus side, their customer service team has been very helpful when I’ve reached out to them.
Guests are Not Receiving Invite
by Osita12! on 2018/05/08 21:35
I was really excited about using this service however my daughter and I spent time creating her birthday invite and I set her as a cohost. All seemed great until she tried to invite a guest. The app shows the invite was sent and delivered to the correct phone number as a text, but the guest never got the invite. We tried multiple times and still nothing. This is making this app completely useless as the intent of sending invites via text message is not working properly. I have even activated the free trail which will charge my card once the week is up and it still isn’t working correctly. Update- in response to the developer’s response......The persons phone was right next to me. They did not have the app installed and did NOT get the text message with the invite. The app makes it seem that the person does not need the app to be notified they have an invite. It makes it hard to use because you then are forced to make sure everyone you invite downloads the app first so they get notified. No one lied about anything.
On the hour
by mypartystartsat4:20 on 2018/05/14 22:08
Hob Nob looked to be a fun alternative to Evite and Paperless Post. They offer unique layouts and fonts as well options to add details the previous sites mentioned do not. Text notifications and option to text invites are nice. My frustration came near the end of creating my invite. Only on the hour, :15/:30 and :45 past the hour are options for start and end times. A 5 or 10 minute difference may not seem important but for my event it was. I didn’t want to start my invite over on another site (because I’m lazy) so I just went with inaccurate times and made note of it in the extra details section. The term “null” is used for any imported contact making it necessary to click on “null” to reveal the guest’s name. Total pain to do that every time I check rsvps so I had to write them down. Petty little complaint but I wish it I could use the app in landscape view.
Initial Observation Review

This is a very organized and creative app in that it has the ability, with out payment, to do the following: choose a creative template, make your own template, send up to 5 invitations per event (for 3 events), have automatic reminders sent to invitees scheduled, chat individually with invitees, create groups, chat with groups, add photos of the event, like certain photos, forward the invite to multiple platforms (Twitter, text, instant messages, copy link, etc), invitees can RSVP, keep count of adults and children together or separately, inviter can manually adjust the RSVP & number of attendance...and much more. You can earn 5 extra invites when one of your invitees registers themselves in the app. Past this, to invite more people and have more than 3 events, you have to pay for it.
Great app, but needs landscape on iPad
by David Chartier on 2018/12/19 14:29
We’ve used HobNob to host a few parties at our house and it’s great. Especially since we and most of our friends have deleted Facebook, it’s the solution we needed for Events. My main complaint right now is that it doesn’t support landscape on iPad; it’s stuck in portrait. Considering that so many people use their iPad docked to a keyboard (like a classic laptop) for at least some of their day, this seems like a bizarre omission. I also wish the chat feature let us share locations other than the one we’re in. Like “hey let’s all go meet at [that place over there].”
New updates lost me as user
by shortyreviews on 2017/11/09 15:09
I’ve been using hobnob for a few months now and have really enjoyed it, and had lots of feedback that it worked really well for my monthly event invitations. However, they recently removed many of the features for pay only, and it’s made it quite difficult to coordinate my events. The changes also seem to affect the text messages/notifications so people aren’t actually seeing my invite anymore. Definitely bummed since it worked so well at first, but this will be the last event I’ll be using hobnob for. Update: Appreciate your developer response, and I understand needing to charge in order to be sustainable. Unfortunately, $46 just to be able to send updates and I still have to individually contact people to check the app to make sure they see the invite isn’t going to work for me right now. I’ll check back in a few months to see if anything has changed since I really did enjoy your product before.
Great until it was okay...
by E.Sparx on 2019/10/11 00:39
I really liked this app at first. The invite was easy to set up and add guests, there is a nice variety of invite themes, and it has the ability to monitor, update/edit rsvp’s, etc. However, about 15 days before my event I couldn’t update the rsvp’s anymore. I could only remove guests or add them as a co-host. The option to make updates should be available up until the day before the event, in my opinion. Knowing that the rsvp edit/update options change I probably won’t use the app again, which is frustrating because it’s a great app otherwise. In addition, it would be nice to have a feature that allows the user to send a reminder. The app does this automatically a few days after the original invite is sent, but I would have liked to send another reminder two weeks before, but it’s not an option.
Could be better- but would still use
by Drshell5000 on 2018/11/28 20:27
Decided to use this to organize a bday party for adults meeting in another city. The creation of the invitation was great - lots of cool options and everyone rec’d the text with initial invite. My complaint/suggestion is that I wanted to be able to continue texting everyone through the app after the initial invite was sent. However the app isn’t designed to do that - so incorrect assumption on my part. After the initial invite - the users have to use the app to see the group messages and apparently the app isn’t that great about sending notifications consistently. So to ensure everyone rec’d important messages, I ended up sending group texts from my cell phone AND from the HobKnob app. I was hoping to just use the HobKnob app. Hopefully the push to text feature is something that can be added in the future.
Lots of flaws.
by 21w on 2018/05/15 18:19
There is some weird thing when I was trying to create the invitation for my daughter’s birthday party for 3 pm. The only option I had is 15:00. There was no way to change that. Also, some of the designs had date format in such a weird way: April 28,15....for us it looked like I put a wrong year but all it was April 28 (at) 15:00 hour. No designs had a year. That was very strange to me. Won’t use this app again and I wish I wouldn’t pay for it. To developer who responded with “there is no issue with app but rather it is your device setting being 24 hour format”. Thank you. I know I am using 24 hour format but I think your app should have option of editing time without attaching it to setting on my phone. I wonder why developer didn’t respond about issue with no year and having hour showing up right after month and day so it looks like it is a year not a time? The response didn’t change my mind about the app.
Did Not Understand the Terms if Usage
by App Rater Human on 2018/12/11 19:45
I want to like and use your app and am even potentially willing to pay a reasonable subscription price to do so. However, after reading the Terms of Use — Yes; some users do that — I was not sure whether Hobnob sells, rents, gives, or distributes my phone number or my contacts’ phone numbers to third parties. If so, this should be stated clearly and up front. As it is the Terms of Use seem to imply that Hobnob does not do that. I am skeptical, however, because, although I see the in app purchase, this sort of thing — selling user data — is a typical business model. By the way— I gave it only three stars in part because I couldn’t bypass the “Please Rate Hobnob” Popup unless I have it a thumbs up. There’s something wrong with the way that screen interacts with the iPhone X’ screen and keyboard.
The site could use some improvements.
by DivaPwr on 2018/08/25 22:29
I like the site, but there are a few things that I think need to improve. 1. There is no way to edit the guest list. My daughter entered mostly email addresses because she didn’t have everyone’s telephone numbers at the time & when she later got the telephone numbers I was not able to update the information. 2. There is no way to make a contact list directly on hobnob. You have to get contacts from your phone or enter information manually, but I don’t see a way to create a contact list to be able to refer to for future invites like I can on evite. 3. I like that I can add my own flyer, but there is no way to add my own fonts or background appearance, so You have to choose the very limited fonts and graphics on the site.
Free version limitations for 10+ invites
by keven2002 on 2018/08/20 14:20
Overall the app is pretty easy to use and for a basic e-vite allows you to customize a good deal. I’m rating it 3 stars due to the invitation limitations on the free version (which didn’t use to be there). You can only invite 10 people before needing to upgrade to a paid version which is no where near enough for a party or group gathering that would need an invite (I could easily put under 10 people in a group text). I only use an e-vite once a year so for me it’s not worth paying for the app and potential added costs if they change like they have before (used to be able to invite more people on the free version). I will use another e-vite app this time around (or worst case scenario put out a group text or 2).
Pretty good
by Jonesy66789 on 2020/03/09 13:07
So far, kinda good. It has fun invite templates to use. The free version makes it a little cumbersome to send out invites. (There are only so many invites you can send out using text messages.) The reason for 4 stars, not 5? I’ve had several guests say that they RSVPd but the app did not update. I’ve had to manually update the attendance info for some. I can say, (for me) this aspect defeats the purpose of using or paying for this app. I assume this is a glitch, not a feature. That has been the only aspect that has made me regret using this app. Nonetheless, we’ll get through this event and give it a chance to redeem itself at a smaller event later on. Based on how it performs at that event, I’ll update this review.
Great Invite App
by LizzyLadyLiz on 2019/07/21 01:30
I’ve been using this app for the past 3years and love it, but I would say I use to be able to invite as many ppl as I wanted through the app until they changed it. You now are given 10 invites free and have to purchase a yearly subscription. If you have many events it would be worth it, of course free is always better. Lol... The reason for the 4 stars instead of the 5 is because of that plus I wish that I could send out a group message to everyone I’ve invited instead of individual messages through the app. Either way, it’s great and love the new feature where you can upload your own video and use it as part of the invite.
I love Hobnob
by BethStets on 2018/08/08 05:48
I’ve been using Hobnob for the last 6 months or so and have had nothing but a great experience. I have used it for parties and events personally and we use it at our church as a way to network and stay connected with events taking place through the week. It simplifies the stress that comes from planning an event with the auto reminders and easy design and communication with attendees. I also love the reminders I get for events I’ve been invited too. Being able to send a message to a group without the complications of a group text is also awesome. I highly recommend using this app!!
Impressive and easy to use
by JesseShow on 2018/12/11 16:31
The new video flyers are pretty much as cool as it gets!!! I have tried so many apps to help get me and my friends together. Text message gets so confusing, big social media apps are just white noise to people. This app allowed me to make an amazing flyer in seconds and choose guests from my actual contact list(not the 2,000 people I know on social media) then it sent the invite to them by text message which is awesome cause who checks email anymore. Everybody can chat, and RSVP even upload photos with or without the app. I will use this for everything from now on!
Disappointed with the changes to this app. Won’t use again
by Paquette6 on 2018/04/05 14:53
I loved this app when it was free and allowed unlimited invites, reminders, and sent without errors. Now that they app costs money, the app limits your invites. My usual guests for this annual event had trouble opening the invites or even receiving them. No reminders can be sent unless you pay extra. Confirmation reply’s were not working properly so I had multiple guests show up who said they sent an RSVP but it never registered a reply on the app. I contacted customer service 4 times with concerns and issues regarding my annual event (which I’ve used this app for previously), with a reply of absolutely no help or refunds due to the constant issues. This app was great for previous events when it was free, but I’ll never use it again with the awful changes and lack of customer service. Beyond discouraged
Worthless unless you pay
by Kitasluv on 2018/02/04 22:43
Free only allows 10 invites. Every time I attempted to send the invitations it would say there was a problem. If I didn’t get that error it would say it was sending but nothing ever went. Why would I pay even $4/mo for limited options on a product that doesn’t work? After reading many of the reviews it seems like the most recent update removed a lot of features on the free or cheaper plans and they want you to pay $47/mo for full features. SERIOUSLY???? Who would do that unless it was a tax write-off? Developers, more options for less money equals happy customers. Happy customers share the product and get their friends using it and in turn those friends spread the word to their friends, and so on. Unhappy customers find new products and advise their peers to not use said product. Just a bit of a tip for you.
So glad I used this app.
by JMMusicFan on 2018/03/25 03:31
add everything with planning my birthday event SOOO much easier. This is about to be my go-to. Only thing I don’t like is that when I send out updates to my guests, it includes a lot of extra verbiage to encourage people to download the app, when they don’t really need to download the app in order to respond to a message sent through the app, since their phone number is connected and they get it as a text message. But I get it--folks have got to get paid. I’m not mad. Other than that, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this app!
Full of Bugs
by sassbean on 2018/11/28 03:38
I loooove the idea of this app! I was so optimistic I signed up for a subscription right away to get access to premium designs. I was excited to put my money to good use and got to work on my first invite. I started encountering bugs while editing. Location would not save, but then it would appear saved in the draft. I’d edit event details and all would seem well, then I’d come back later to see things hadn’t updated. When I thought I’d finally got everything saved, I was excited to send. But no. I repeatedly got the same error “hmmmm something’s not working. Please wait a few moments and try again.” So I’d wait, and I’d try, and wait and try. Log out. Close app. Check for updates. Restart my phone. Endless tries. Endless errors. I need to get this invite out ASAP and so now what???!!!!! Lame experience. Unhappy customer.
Great App Overall but missing a few features
by Khaddie95xo on 2019/05/14 19:54
I really like the Hobnob app overall. It’s very easy to use and I prefer sending invites over text rather than email. The thing is, the Hobnob app doesn’t send your event description via text. People can only view it when they click the link or download the app. I would pay extra if I was able to send people texts directly. I understand they want as many people to download the app as possible - so forcing people to download the app to view the texts or longer messages could do this - but it’s annoying. I much rather people be able to do things and see things all via text. I would pay significantly more for this feature.
Made party planning so easy!
by Breezymm93 on 2018/06/16 01:38
I’m not typically one to write reviews, but this is worth it! I love that I can pull from my phone contacts to invite people, and get notified on my phone to see who is coming and who isn’t! People were much more willing to respond to this than snail mail invites. It is so quick for them to just click the link and RSVP right on their phone. And I don’t have to make a whole other list to keep track of it. The app keeps track of it for you! Everything about this was so easy!!
The FREE original was better
by Divasemaj on 2017/11/14 13:52
This was my go to for beautiful and unique invites that didn’t get lost in people’s emails or the mail but allowed for immediate response and the sharing of photos of the event. This was it, or so I thought.... the update of this requires a “subscription” for basic things the app did for free previously. So people like me who have been using the app for YEARS are forced to pay for what we were getting for free. I can’t tell you how many people have started using the app as a result of my using this app to invite them to my events. I’m also disappointed that they would switch over to such a drastic cost model that doesn’t consider the people who were here from the start.
Disappointed now
by luvable2s on 2017/10/25 20:28
I originally loved this app. Text invites and reminders to guests for my own events and receiving them from others until I realized that once the app is actually downloaded you no longer receive invites, reminders, or updates via text message. The text feature is what most of us love. Not only that the app doesn’t show a notification on its symbol (at least not on my phone ) so you actually have to go into the app to check for invites, updates, etc. I missed reminders, etc. I’ve removed the app. Hopefully they will integrate the text feature even for those who download the actual app because it’s the best feature.
Really helpful!
by LiliBit1 on 2018/11/19 14:30
I was first introduced to HOBnob when I received an invite for a friend to their rehearsal dinner. I loved the RSVP reminders and the easy format to look up the event details. I now love using this app to create invites for my large family dinners and neighborhood get togethers. It’s great to be able to put together an invite and then not Have to worry about making individual calls to get a number of guests. I Love the auto reminder feature. Although, I do turn off after my event so that I just don’t get request for Photos. 👍🏻
Love it!
by Marciee19 on 2019/04/26 09:09
Downloaded it for my grad invitations! As soon as I sent it out people messaged me separately congrats etc. if they don’t open the link it will just say delivered.. until they open the rsvp it will say viewed. They do not need the app to receive it or rsvp! I paid for the 150 because I needed to lol! But I love it super easy to use .. to the friends that couldn’t receive it I’m guessing it was just their phone/plan bc out of 105 invite only one said they didn’t receive it .. Suggestion: try to add Facebook messenger invite !
A Baby Shower Go-To
by iamme0963 on 2020/04/24 02:42
I was introduced to the app by one of my daughters who has been planning her older sister’s baby shower way before the coronavirus store closings. Since we are all sheltered-in-place, the app has now become our go-to for updates and also to connect to a gift-giving list with price comparisons and automatic links to stores’ websites. Although we are sad that the baby shower has been postponed for a few months until after the baby is born, this app has been a tremendous blessing to be able to still shower our baby boy with well wishes, prayers, great joy, and wonderful gifts from a distance.
Awesome for direct sales!
by Mindy Mussell Banks on 2020/01/18 14:58
I’ve been using Hobnob for a year and it has completely changed how I invite guests to my Pampered Chef parties! I’ve spent thousands of dollars (& way too much time) for 20 years mailing postcard invitations for my hosts. Hobnob has simplified my invitation process for me and my hosts and is saving me so much money! It’s easy to use, not spammy, no advertisements in the invitations and their support team is always willing to help if I need it. It’s way better than Facebook events that nobody ever opens. Thank you Hobnob!!!
Rip Off!!!
by Modelprisoner on 2017/12/04 05:16
I got this app because I wanted to have automatic reminders for the party. I upgraded and spent 40 something bucks. It's the most I have ever spent in an app. Not one of my guests got a reminder. Not the week before or the day before or anything. This app is a joke and I will never recommend it. I want my money back!!! I have just started a new business where I will be sending out invitations for events and thought this was the way to go but I guess not!! I want to know why they didn't get a reminder???!? Is it because the only way they can get a reminder is if they download the app?! Because if so that is deceiving and if would have known that I wouldn't have purchased the app!!! I want to know what the company is going to do about it!! I want a refund!!
Bummer
by Dingle777393&36 on 2017/10/06 18:21
Just left a long review and it got deleted because the nickname was taken already. What?! Why delete my whole review? Give me an option to change it. Last night I tried to send an important invite for or wedding reception, attached a picture we designed and instead it sent out a completely blank photo (when I clicked on the blank pic it would show the full picture so I falsely assumed it would work. My bad there for not testing it, but I also didn't upload a black photo). It looked like spam and tacky instead of slick and fun. Then I had to upgrade to premium ($15) to resend it with the picture I uploaded. That finally worked. Really bummed about the experience, wish the program worked flawlessly and would love a refund.
Great App for Invites
by Happy Hob Nobber on 2017/10/25 23:55
I have used Hob Nob for several birthday parties and my son’s prom. I love how you can message each other and upload pictures. And, as for the family that couldn’t attend party, at least they were able to see the photos and send a thoughtful Happy Birthday message. I mostly like how other people that attended party could upload their photos also. I absolutely love this app. Planning my 50th birthday party and plan to use Hob Nob. I looked at Evite and wasn’t impressed. Thanks for the great app!!!
Semi functional
by The 4th Phife on 2018/11/13 16:32
I like the looks of this and am even willing to pay for one month for this event BUT I am getting frustrated trying to set it up properly. I keep adding the location of the event, it finds it on the map and when it goes back to the invitation there is no location. I have restarted it and tried several times to no avail. Also, is there an option to see a preview of the entire invitation? Update: The recent update to the app fixed the location issue! I am so far pretty satisfied with the app- will see how it goes post event.
Terrible! DO NOT USE! WASTE OF MONEY!
by SammaiBaby on 2017/11/22 07:17
I heard about this app from a family member who’s said that it’s a good feature. Especially to help go green when planning events. I used this to help plan my wedding and it’s been a nightmare to use since. When I send updates to my guests and wedding party, no one is receiving the messages. This glitch is a big inconvenience and rip off, since I’m paying money for the features they provide and these same features aren’t working!!!!! It has somewhat affected the efficiency of my wedding planning. Due to the fact that now I have to message all my guests in text messages, when the app was suppose to prevent this. If I knew this one was trash, I would’ve never used it to help plan such an important and special day to me!!
User friendly!!
by Momma KJK on 2020/09/17 14:18
This app with the 12 th one I downloaded before found one that would be easy to use when tech challenged & under stress. My mom had passed away and I just couldn’t focus, needed to get invites sent quickly so doing them electronically was my only option. I was very suprised at how much work the app did for me and only cost me several bucks! I received tons of compliments on the final product and couldn’t have been happier with with end result!! Thank you Hobnob😊
Nice app but disappointed in the upgrade fee!
by Babbling Brooke on 2017/11/07 02:23
Overall this is a nice app. Great alternative to Evite since you can text out the invites. A few months ago I would have give them 5 stars because I’ve used this for numerous events and have loved it. However, tonight when I went to use it i found out that it was very restricted and I have to pay a monthly “upgrade” fee to get all of the features. I don’t mind paying a one time fee for an app but I don’t like being forced into a monthly fee option to send out invites. It’s not worth it to me when I only send out 6-8 a year so I will have to find an alternative.
Good App
by Oddly7 on 2020/09/27 17:46
I like it! I’ve been using it for 2 years. There are 2 people in my contacts who never get the invite. But other than that, I’ve used it to host at least 10 parties. I don’t care for the predesigned flyer. I make my own and upload them. The flyers do need to be a certain size 1080px x 1920px. I like the Zoom meeting link option that was added. I would like for it to have a thank you note option that is similar to the invite. I thought it had automatic photo request option. But that didn’t occur after my last party.
Not user friendly
by mewell20 on 2020/02/14 13:44
Trying to copy the address on the invite to put in gps and will not allow. Therefore inconvenient to have to go between app and gps to enter the address. Signing up was not like we are used to. It took me to create an event immediately when I was only signing up to view and respond to an invite, fr the invite’s link in the text I received for the event. Does not allow me to go into my account to change settings. This app seems like a great idea and fun. Needs more work though for it to feel seemless. Seeing all the other reviews here makes it more so. Would love to continue to use it but changes definitely are needed.
Awesome App for Parties!!!
by smj621 on 2018/06/24 14:58
This was the perfect app, I was looking for a free app that I could make a birthday card with and send to contacts on my phone and presto! This app did all that, plus some! I was able to send the invites to cell # and emails and when they rsvp’d I got it as a notification than I got reminders when the party was coming up! Now I’m seeing if I can send out some sort of thank u...I’ll really be impressed if thank u’s can be done too!!!! Thanks hobnob!! 😁👍👏🤩
Cute app. Plus one option is annoying
by NVAdamzz on 2019/12/13 22:05
It’s cute and convenient enough so far. It’s nice being able to have people RSVP right on the app and you get a head count and notifications. I’m not a fan of the fact that they automatically give guests the option of a plus one and there’s no way to disable that. Every event is not plus one eligible and people tend to not read the event details to know to disregard the option. I’m not trying to pay for someone I don’t know to show up to my event, eat my food and drink my liquor without bringing a gift. You need to do something about that.
Love this app
by Pery.lda on 2018/01/11 03:02
All features of this app are really useful and blows your mind how did i ever invited people anywhere before. However, the only downside was that after having this app for 2 years and not paying for it, my trial has expired. The event that i have created last week and is happening in 2 days is not accessible unless i pay for a subscription. It would be great to give people heads up in notifications and maybe let people with events in process access them before forcing payment.
WAS awesome, not so much anymore.
by apelila2 on 2018/05/28 19:41
I have been using this app since 2015 and got all my friends using it too. Didn’t realize it’s basically worthless unless you subscribe now. I have a major aversion to monthly subscriptions, especially for something I use 4-5x a year. Who is throwing parties monthly or more??? Recently, a friend sent an invite and I didn’t get the usual text notification. Then, it expired, because she only paid for one month. Now I can no longer see the event details! It also seems like unless the host AND all the guests pay for the app, it’s not going to function well. So disappointing because I used to LOVE this app. I would support a one time fee and ads don’t bother me.
Very Nice-Just a few Suggestions for Improvement
by B. E. M. II on 2017/11/27 22:29
I think this app is very helpful and user friendly! My suggestion for improvement would be to allow the users to have more freedom with adjusting the template to fit what we need. Not every event is so simple to only need the event, date, time and location. At times I wanted to add more to the flyer but wasn’t able. And some of the templates do not capture the entire date and time and cuts off. If we could manipulate these more like adobe spark this would be awesome!
So sad
by Jeradswife on 2017/11/12 17:09
I was in love with this app for months! Now they charge you if you invite more than 10 people per month. Why wouldn’t I just send a FREE group text to 10 people? Additionally, my husband and I have several groups that we invite to things each month but we are not allowed to share a plan. It doesn’t make sense for us to spend all that money on an invite app when Evite is FREE! We made a painful switch back and pay nothing, plus the added benefit of Evites familiarity and email capability. If you ask me, it would’ve been more beneficial for hobnob to just start using ads than to begin charging their Faithful customers.
Great app & great customer support
by Tori L H on 2018/12/06 10:36
The app itself is super easy to use and makes planning a larger event a breeze. But I was also very happy with how responsive and helpful their support team was when I encountered a problem with having multiple accounts and the wrong one linked to the App Store for subscription purposes. The low price is very worth it, you can cancel at any time, reinstate if needed and the support is excellent.
Total scam
by Tigerlillym on 2020/12/04 07:08
I purchased a year subscription of Hobnob for various parties I planned to throw. I cancelled the subscription because I didn’t end up using it as much as I thought I would but I still have until September 2021 to use it because I paid upfront for a year. When I go to login now it says “oops there is a problem, try again later.” I try again “later” and find the same problem. For days now. I know I have my login correct. They won’t let me login to use a service I have paid for. I’m assuming because I cancelled? No clue. I updated the app. I attempted to contact customer service but can’t get that to work either. Too stupid. Don’t get tricked like I did.

Total scam
by Tigerlillym on 2020/12/04 07:08
I purchased a year subscription of Hobnob for various parties I planned to throw. I cancelled the subscription because I didn’t end up using it as much as I thought I would but I still have until September 2021 to use it because I paid upfront for a year. When I go to login now it says “oops there is a problem, try again later.” I try again “later” and find the same problem. For days now. I know I have my login correct. They won’t let me login to use a service I have paid for. I’m assuming because I cancelled? No clue. I updated the app. I attempted to contact customer service but can’t get that to work either. Too stupid. Don’t get tricked like I did.

I am extremely disappointed with this app. I made invitations for a small get together for my birthday and it will not allow me to add my apartment number. It says address doesn’t exist. Will not recommend.

Best Invitation App
by PauPauIliana on 2020/10/31 16:45
I have been using this app for years. In our modern world where we now use technology for everything and all live busy lives. This app allows you to keep all those invited to all your events informed with any changes and updates needed. The options to decorate your invitations are awesome, great variety of colors and an entire online ideas and boards to help.
Simple, sleek event app

Big Time Saver & Beautiful Invites
by LidKz on 2020/10/06 01:30
I’ve used this app for almost two years now. I look forward to any excuse to send invites for Here.Would love to be able to send a thank you to guests from this app. But I know that’s way overboard. The app does an amazing job, easy to use, can make your own invites are use premade templates. Just a lifesaver.

Deleting my invite
by Timjaaz on 2020/09/29 22:26
In the middle of me sending out invitations it’ll delete my invite without me agreeing. My guests can’t RSVP. And I PAID this is really ghetto and it shouldn’t be this hard

by Oddly7 on 2020/09/27 17:46
I like it! I’ve been using it for 2 years. There are 2 people in my contacts who never get the invite. But other than that, I’ve used it to host at least 10 parties. I don’t care for the predesigned flyer. I make my own and upload them. The flyers do need to be a certain size 1080px x 1920px. I like the Zoom meeting link option that was added. I would like for it to have a thank you note option that is similar to the invite. I thought it had automatic photo request option. But that didn’t occur after my last party.
FREE version is VERY limited
by ACGreen90 on 2020/09/24 20:05
I like the options for creating an invite, but when I finally found the invite I liked and sent it— I was told I needed more credits to get it out to my entire list. The free version is EXTREMELY Limited and the paid for version is too expensive. For a regular person that doesn’t host events as a professional, this is a bit too much to commit to for a decent e-vite. I probably won’t use it again for my future event planning needs.
Easy to use and great designs

App keeps kicking me out
by Kimmy😄 on 2020/09/17 14:41
For some reason the app keeps kicking me out. I’ve deleted it at least three times. I’ve restarted my phone - same issue. I can’t get my guest lists completed because every 1-2 guests I select - I get kicked out.
User friendly!!
by Momma KJK on 2020/09/17 14:18
This app with the 12 th one I downloaded before found one that would be easy to use when tech challenged & under stress. My mom had passed away and I just couldn’t focus, needed to get invites sent quickly so doing them electronically was my only option. I was very suprised at how much work the app did for me and only cost me several bucks! I received tons of compliments on the final product and couldn’t have been happier with with end result!! Thank you Hobnob😊

I downloaded Hobnob to help coordinate a pre-recorded virtual surprise 60th birthday party for my dad. I was using Vidday for the video and Hobnob for the invitation. I LOVED how easy to use Hobnob was, as well as the extensive selection of cards. I chose the “football stadium with blinking lights” as my dad is a sports lover. It was awesome! The invitation was incredibly easy to share via the provided link, and I even embedded the Vidday link within the Hobnob invitation. I was also very loquacious and I appreciated not being limited! Thank you for such an incredible app! It truly made the difference in my dad’s party!

Omit the time of event?
by NeilandSara on 2020/07/12 17:33
I am unable to remove the time of the event..I only want it to say “July 29-30”. Also do not like that the details don’t show up on the image unless you click on it? I just want all the info on the image..no clicking necessary. Photos are pretty but I had to use a different app to make my Invite. Did not like this one at all.
Excelent

Has major kinks
by nicoleki91 on 2020/07/05 16:11
I like the idea of hobknob and how easy it is. However, majority of the time, the app doesn’t work! I had people who RSVP “yes” for the app to suddenly change them to “no”. The guest count is never correct. I have over 30 people who have RSVPd “yes” and my guest count currently says only 4 people have RSVPd “yes”. So many glitches.

Convenient, thoughtfully designed and constantly updated 💯
by Hiro Protagonist 😶 on 2018/07/06 03:37
I don't usually write reviews but I'm consistently surprised and delighted by Hobnob and I wanted to share. I've used Hobnob a bunch over the past few years and although the app had some weird quirks earlier on, it has been rock-solid lately. I can see from my app updates that it's constantly updated and each release seems to improve it's stability as well as add cool new features. (I love the new video invites!) This app is, put simply, a huge time saver. The interface is simple and straightforward but well-designed and functional. The few times I've had issues I've written into their support and their friendly, understanding support staff is helpful and and they get back to me quickly. I paid for it, and I'm glad I did. It keeps me organized and makes me look good to my guests. It's not spammy or riddled with ads like evite and it's a way better value than paperless post. I'd rather pay a few bucks for a high quality app than look like a cheap-o sending spammy, ugly looking invites for my events. Thanks Hobnob!
An App to Celebrate
by kevnJen on 2017/09/23 19:20
I was notified by my good friend on Wednesday that his last day to meet with friends before taking a new job would be the upcoming Friday. With just two days notice Hob Nob allowed us to not just create an invitation but allow invitees to share memorable photos of their friend and colleague. Hob Nob gave us a great avenue to track head count of who was coming which also helped us prepare for how much food we would need and adequate space for the attendees. The great selection of options for invitation design made it quick and simple for this "non tech old guy" I highly recommend this app. The thing I most appreciated was being able to post photos from the actual party for all those who attended or could attend to enjoy! Thank you for helping us send off our good friend with style. Kevin and Jennifer Keyes
Great app for planning social events
by Hoping to be pregnant soon on 2020/03/03 03:22
This app is great! It sends invitations, and automatically sends reminders to the guests 24 hours before the event and again 1 hour before. It really takes the follow-up on getting RSVP's to the next level too by making it simple for people to reply. In today's world, where almost everyone has a smart phone and uses texting to communicate, it's the ideal way to plan a party! I literally had guests RSVPing the same day I sent the invitation out!! The reason it gets 4 stars instead of five is because it wouldn't let me add contact information directly to the app (it had to be imported from my phone's contacts or a linked list), and it also has a handy chat feature BUT it required guests to download the app in order to correspond with me (which several guests didn't want to do). I ended up ammending the invitation with my personal contact info for those who needed to connect and did not want to install the app. Overall, a great app well worth the small fee if your guest list is large enough to outgrow the free number of invites!
Hated it
by CRICKETRENE on 2019/09/23 13:41
Had the worst experience. It was confusing to alooot of my guest. Nobody read the text notification correctly. I couldn’t resend the invite for folks who lost the invite text msg in their text. So I had delete and resend again. There was no link where I could ask for guest to only bring one guest with them. I had to type that specific instructions in the details which nobody new was below the actual invite. They didn’t know that they had to scroll down to see the details. When I sent updates, the updated text msg only allowed people who downloaded the app to view it. Nobody wants to HAVE to download the app. I couldn’t message specific guest through the app like I can using Evite. It was just not all worth using for me. The only thing that drew me to the app was the motion invites. This app had a very nice selection but not functional at all to me and pretty much allll of my guest. I had to do a lot more of texting people individual updates or just the invite itself because the app wasn’t helpful with that AT ALL. Made my wedding planning extremely hard! Then I tried to leave my review on the app to why I didn’t like the app and the send feedback button wouldn’t work
So Close
by Kiwi2141 on 2018/11/14 05:43
Hobnob does a lot of things well, and my favorite part is the fact that you can send invites through text message because it’s faster and more interesting than sending them via email. BUT there are some bugs that I’m hoping get addressed soon. Picture management is a challenge. After I upload photos, they display in “random order” and definitely not in the order I selected. That’s confusing to invitees. Also, it’s not obvious whether or not you can download and save photos (I assume you can but I haven’t figured it out yet). It would be super cool if you could also add video clips in the same storage area. Also, the app doesn’t update when people respond to invites so it feels very clunky at times... I have to close and re-launch the app just to get it to display the right number of RSVPs. Overall, I like Hobnob but would have to see a lot of improvement to stay loyal. On the plus side, their customer service team has been very helpful when I’ve reached out to them.
Guests are Not Receiving Invite
by Osita12! on 2018/05/08 21:35
I was really excited about using this service however my daughter and I spent time creating her birthday invite and I set her as a cohost. All seemed great until she tried to invite a guest. The app shows the invite was sent and delivered to the correct phone number as a text, but the guest never got the invite. We tried multiple times and still nothing. This is making this app completely useless as the intent of sending invites via text message is not working properly. I have even activated the free trail which will charge my card once the week is up and it still isn’t working correctly. Update- in response to the developer’s response......The persons phone was right next to me. They did not have the app installed and did NOT get the text message with the invite. The app makes it seem that the person does not need the app to be notified they have an invite. It makes it hard to use because you then are forced to make sure everyone you invite downloads the app first so they get notified. No one lied about anything.
On the hour
by mypartystartsat4:20 on 2018/05/14 22:08
Hob Nob looked to be a fun alternative to Evite and Paperless Post. They offer unique layouts and fonts as well options to add details the previous sites mentioned do not. Text notifications and option to text invites are nice. My frustration came near the end of creating my invite. Only on the hour, :15/:30 and :45 past the hour are options for start and end times. A 5 or 10 minute difference may not seem important but for my event it was. I didn’t want to start my invite over on another site (because I’m lazy) so I just went with inaccurate times and made note of it in the extra details section. The term “null” is used for any imported contact making it necessary to click on “null” to reveal the guest’s name. Total pain to do that every time I check rsvps so I had to write them down. Petty little complaint but I wish it I could use the app in landscape view.

This is a very organized and creative app in that it has the ability, with out payment, to do the following: choose a creative template, make your own template, send up to 5 invitations per event (for 3 events), have automatic reminders sent to invitees scheduled, chat individually with invitees, create groups, chat with groups, add photos of the event, like certain photos, forward the invite to multiple platforms (Twitter, text, instant messages, copy link, etc), invitees can RSVP, keep count of adults and children together or separately, inviter can manually adjust the RSVP & number of attendance...and much more. You can earn 5 extra invites when one of your invitees registers themselves in the app. Past this, to invite more people and have more than 3 events, you have to pay for it.
Great app, but needs landscape on iPad
by David Chartier on 2018/12/19 14:29
We’ve used HobNob to host a few parties at our house and it’s great. Especially since we and most of our friends have deleted Facebook, it’s the solution we needed for Events. My main complaint right now is that it doesn’t support landscape on iPad; it’s stuck in portrait. Considering that so many people use their iPad docked to a keyboard (like a classic laptop) for at least some of their day, this seems like a bizarre omission. I also wish the chat feature let us share locations other than the one we’re in. Like “hey let’s all go meet at [that place over there].”
New updates lost me as user
by shortyreviews on 2017/11/09 15:09
I’ve been using hobnob for a few months now and have really enjoyed it, and had lots of feedback that it worked really well for my monthly event invitations. However, they recently removed many of the features for pay only, and it’s made it quite difficult to coordinate my events. The changes also seem to affect the text messages/notifications so people aren’t actually seeing my invite anymore. Definitely bummed since it worked so well at first, but this will be the last event I’ll be using hobnob for. Update: Appreciate your developer response, and I understand needing to charge in order to be sustainable. Unfortunately, $46 just to be able to send updates and I still have to individually contact people to check the app to make sure they see the invite isn’t going to work for me right now. I’ll check back in a few months to see if anything has changed since I really did enjoy your product before.
Great until it was okay...
by E.Sparx on 2019/10/11 00:39
I really liked this app at first. The invite was easy to set up and add guests, there is a nice variety of invite themes, and it has the ability to monitor, update/edit rsvp’s, etc. However, about 15 days before my event I couldn’t update the rsvp’s anymore. I could only remove guests or add them as a co-host. The option to make updates should be available up until the day before the event, in my opinion. Knowing that the rsvp edit/update options change I probably won’t use the app again, which is frustrating because it’s a great app otherwise. In addition, it would be nice to have a feature that allows the user to send a reminder. The app does this automatically a few days after the original invite is sent, but I would have liked to send another reminder two weeks before, but it’s not an option.
Could be better- but would still use
by Drshell5000 on 2018/11/28 20:27
Decided to use this to organize a bday party for adults meeting in another city. The creation of the invitation was great - lots of cool options and everyone rec’d the text with initial invite. My complaint/suggestion is that I wanted to be able to continue texting everyone through the app after the initial invite was sent. However the app isn’t designed to do that - so incorrect assumption on my part. After the initial invite - the users have to use the app to see the group messages and apparently the app isn’t that great about sending notifications consistently. So to ensure everyone rec’d important messages, I ended up sending group texts from my cell phone AND from the HobKnob app. I was hoping to just use the HobKnob app. Hopefully the push to text feature is something that can be added in the future.
Lots of flaws.
by 21w on 2018/05/15 18:19
There is some weird thing when I was trying to create the invitation for my daughter’s birthday party for 3 pm. The only option I had is 15:00. There was no way to change that. Also, some of the designs had date format in such a weird way: April 28,15....for us it looked like I put a wrong year but all it was April 28 (at) 15:00 hour. No designs had a year. That was very strange to me. Won’t use this app again and I wish I wouldn’t pay for it. To developer who responded with “there is no issue with app but rather it is your device setting being 24 hour format”. Thank you. I know I am using 24 hour format but I think your app should have option of editing time without attaching it to setting on my phone. I wonder why developer didn’t respond about issue with no year and having hour showing up right after month and day so it looks like it is a year not a time? The response didn’t change my mind about the app.
Did Not Understand the Terms if Usage
by App Rater Human on 2018/12/11 19:45
I want to like and use your app and am even potentially willing to pay a reasonable subscription price to do so. However, after reading the Terms of Use — Yes; some users do that — I was not sure whether Hobnob sells, rents, gives, or distributes my phone number or my contacts’ phone numbers to third parties. If so, this should be stated clearly and up front. As it is the Terms of Use seem to imply that Hobnob does not do that. I am skeptical, however, because, although I see the in app purchase, this sort of thing — selling user data — is a typical business model. By the way— I gave it only three stars in part because I couldn’t bypass the “Please Rate Hobnob” Popup unless I have it a thumbs up. There’s something wrong with the way that screen interacts with the iPhone X’ screen and keyboard.
The site could use some improvements.
by DivaPwr on 2018/08/25 22:29
I like the site, but there are a few things that I think need to improve. 1. There is no way to edit the guest list. My daughter entered mostly email addresses because she didn’t have everyone’s telephone numbers at the time & when she later got the telephone numbers I was not able to update the information. 2. There is no way to make a contact list directly on hobnob. You have to get contacts from your phone or enter information manually, but I don’t see a way to create a contact list to be able to refer to for future invites like I can on evite. 3. I like that I can add my own flyer, but there is no way to add my own fonts or background appearance, so You have to choose the very limited fonts and graphics on the site.
Free version limitations for 10+ invites
by keven2002 on 2018/08/20 14:20
Overall the app is pretty easy to use and for a basic e-vite allows you to customize a good deal. I’m rating it 3 stars due to the invitation limitations on the free version (which didn’t use to be there). You can only invite 10 people before needing to upgrade to a paid version which is no where near enough for a party or group gathering that would need an invite (I could easily put under 10 people in a group text). I only use an e-vite once a year so for me it’s not worth paying for the app and potential added costs if they change like they have before (used to be able to invite more people on the free version). I will use another e-vite app this time around (or worst case scenario put out a group text or 2).
Pretty good
by Jonesy66789 on 2020/03/09 13:07
So far, kinda good. It has fun invite templates to use. The free version makes it a little cumbersome to send out invites. (There are only so many invites you can send out using text messages.) The reason for 4 stars, not 5? I’ve had several guests say that they RSVPd but the app did not update. I’ve had to manually update the attendance info for some. I can say, (for me) this aspect defeats the purpose of using or paying for this app. I assume this is a glitch, not a feature. That has been the only aspect that has made me regret using this app. Nonetheless, we’ll get through this event and give it a chance to redeem itself at a smaller event later on. Based on how it performs at that event, I’ll update this review.
Great Invite App
by LizzyLadyLiz on 2019/07/21 01:30
I’ve been using this app for the past 3years and love it, but I would say I use to be able to invite as many ppl as I wanted through the app until they changed it. You now are given 10 invites free and have to purchase a yearly subscription. If you have many events it would be worth it, of course free is always better. Lol... The reason for the 4 stars instead of the 5 is because of that plus I wish that I could send out a group message to everyone I’ve invited instead of individual messages through the app. Either way, it’s great and love the new feature where you can upload your own video and use it as part of the invite.
I love Hobnob
by BethStets on 2018/08/08 05:48
I’ve been using Hobnob for the last 6 months or so and have had nothing but a great experience. I have used it for parties and events personally and we use it at our church as a way to network and stay connected with events taking place through the week. It simplifies the stress that comes from planning an event with the auto reminders and easy design and communication with attendees. I also love the reminders I get for events I’ve been invited too. Being able to send a message to a group without the complications of a group text is also awesome. I highly recommend using this app!!
Impressive and easy to use
by JesseShow on 2018/12/11 16:31
The new video flyers are pretty much as cool as it gets!!! I have tried so many apps to help get me and my friends together. Text message gets so confusing, big social media apps are just white noise to people. This app allowed me to make an amazing flyer in seconds and choose guests from my actual contact list(not the 2,000 people I know on social media) then it sent the invite to them by text message which is awesome cause who checks email anymore. Everybody can chat, and RSVP even upload photos with or without the app. I will use this for everything from now on!
Disappointed with the changes to this app. Won’t use again
by Paquette6 on 2018/04/05 14:53
I loved this app when it was free and allowed unlimited invites, reminders, and sent without errors. Now that they app costs money, the app limits your invites. My usual guests for this annual event had trouble opening the invites or even receiving them. No reminders can be sent unless you pay extra. Confirmation reply’s were not working properly so I had multiple guests show up who said they sent an RSVP but it never registered a reply on the app. I contacted customer service 4 times with concerns and issues regarding my annual event (which I’ve used this app for previously), with a reply of absolutely no help or refunds due to the constant issues. This app was great for previous events when it was free, but I’ll never use it again with the awful changes and lack of customer service. Beyond discouraged
Worthless unless you pay
by Kitasluv on 2018/02/04 22:43
Free only allows 10 invites. Every time I attempted to send the invitations it would say there was a problem. If I didn’t get that error it would say it was sending but nothing ever went. Why would I pay even $4/mo for limited options on a product that doesn’t work? After reading many of the reviews it seems like the most recent update removed a lot of features on the free or cheaper plans and they want you to pay $47/mo for full features. SERIOUSLY???? Who would do that unless it was a tax write-off? Developers, more options for less money equals happy customers. Happy customers share the product and get their friends using it and in turn those friends spread the word to their friends, and so on. Unhappy customers find new products and advise their peers to not use said product. Just a bit of a tip for you.
So glad I used this app.
by JMMusicFan on 2018/03/25 03:31
add everything with planning my birthday event SOOO much easier. This is about to be my go-to. Only thing I don’t like is that when I send out updates to my guests, it includes a lot of extra verbiage to encourage people to download the app, when they don’t really need to download the app in order to respond to a message sent through the app, since their phone number is connected and they get it as a text message. But I get it--folks have got to get paid. I’m not mad. Other than that, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this app!
Full of Bugs
by sassbean on 2018/11/28 03:38
I loooove the idea of this app! I was so optimistic I signed up for a subscription right away to get access to premium designs. I was excited to put my money to good use and got to work on my first invite. I started encountering bugs while editing. Location would not save, but then it would appear saved in the draft. I’d edit event details and all would seem well, then I’d come back later to see things hadn’t updated. When I thought I’d finally got everything saved, I was excited to send. But no. I repeatedly got the same error “hmmmm something’s not working. Please wait a few moments and try again.” So I’d wait, and I’d try, and wait and try. Log out. Close app. Check for updates. Restart my phone. Endless tries. Endless errors. I need to get this invite out ASAP and so now what???!!!!! Lame experience. Unhappy customer.
Great App Overall but missing a few features
by Khaddie95xo on 2019/05/14 19:54
I really like the Hobnob app overall. It’s very easy to use and I prefer sending invites over text rather than email. The thing is, the Hobnob app doesn’t send your event description via text. People can only view it when they click the link or download the app. I would pay extra if I was able to send people texts directly. I understand they want as many people to download the app as possible - so forcing people to download the app to view the texts or longer messages could do this - but it’s annoying. I much rather people be able to do things and see things all via text. I would pay significantly more for this feature.
Made party planning so easy!
by Breezymm93 on 2018/06/16 01:38
I’m not typically one to write reviews, but this is worth it! I love that I can pull from my phone contacts to invite people, and get notified on my phone to see who is coming and who isn’t! People were much more willing to respond to this than snail mail invites. It is so quick for them to just click the link and RSVP right on their phone. And I don’t have to make a whole other list to keep track of it. The app keeps track of it for you! Everything about this was so easy!!
The FREE original was better
by Divasemaj on 2017/11/14 13:52
This was my go to for beautiful and unique invites that didn’t get lost in people’s emails or the mail but allowed for immediate response and the sharing of photos of the event. This was it, or so I thought.... the update of this requires a “subscription” for basic things the app did for free previously. So people like me who have been using the app for YEARS are forced to pay for what we were getting for free. I can’t tell you how many people have started using the app as a result of my using this app to invite them to my events. I’m also disappointed that they would switch over to such a drastic cost model that doesn’t consider the people who were here from the start.
Disappointed now
by luvable2s on 2017/10/25 20:28
I originally loved this app. Text invites and reminders to guests for my own events and receiving them from others until I realized that once the app is actually downloaded you no longer receive invites, reminders, or updates via text message. The text feature is what most of us love. Not only that the app doesn’t show a notification on its symbol (at least not on my phone ) so you actually have to go into the app to check for invites, updates, etc. I missed reminders, etc. I’ve removed the app. Hopefully they will integrate the text feature even for those who download the actual app because it’s the best feature.
Really helpful!
by LiliBit1 on 2018/11/19 14:30
I was first introduced to HOBnob when I received an invite for a friend to their rehearsal dinner. I loved the RSVP reminders and the easy format to look up the event details. I now love using this app to create invites for my large family dinners and neighborhood get togethers. It’s great to be able to put together an invite and then not Have to worry about making individual calls to get a number of guests. I Love the auto reminder feature. Although, I do turn off after my event so that I just don’t get request for Photos. 👍🏻
Love it!
by Marciee19 on 2019/04/26 09:09
Downloaded it for my grad invitations! As soon as I sent it out people messaged me separately congrats etc. if they don’t open the link it will just say delivered.. until they open the rsvp it will say viewed. They do not need the app to receive it or rsvp! I paid for the 150 because I needed to lol! But I love it super easy to use .. to the friends that couldn’t receive it I’m guessing it was just their phone/plan bc out of 105 invite only one said they didn’t receive it .. Suggestion: try to add Facebook messenger invite !
A Baby Shower Go-To
by iamme0963 on 2020/04/24 02:42
I was introduced to the app by one of my daughters who has been planning her older sister’s baby shower way before the coronavirus store closings. Since we are all sheltered-in-place, the app has now become our go-to for updates and also to connect to a gift-giving list with price comparisons and automatic links to stores’ websites. Although we are sad that the baby shower has been postponed for a few months until after the baby is born, this app has been a tremendous blessing to be able to still shower our baby boy with well wishes, prayers, great joy, and wonderful gifts from a distance.
Awesome for direct sales!
by Mindy Mussell Banks on 2020/01/18 14:58
I’ve been using Hobnob for a year and it has completely changed how I invite guests to my Pampered Chef parties! I’ve spent thousands of dollars (& way too much time) for 20 years mailing postcard invitations for my hosts. Hobnob has simplified my invitation process for me and my hosts and is saving me so much money! It’s easy to use, not spammy, no advertisements in the invitations and their support team is always willing to help if I need it. It’s way better than Facebook events that nobody ever opens. Thank you Hobnob!!!
Rip Off!!!
by Modelprisoner on 2017/12/04 05:16
I got this app because I wanted to have automatic reminders for the party. I upgraded and spent 40 something bucks. It's the most I have ever spent in an app. Not one of my guests got a reminder. Not the week before or the day before or anything. This app is a joke and I will never recommend it. I want my money back!!! I have just started a new business where I will be sending out invitations for events and thought this was the way to go but I guess not!! I want to know why they didn't get a reminder???!? Is it because the only way they can get a reminder is if they download the app?! Because if so that is deceiving and if would have known that I wouldn't have purchased the app!!! I want to know what the company is going to do about it!! I want a refund!!
Bummer
by Dingle777393&36 on 2017/10/06 18:21
Just left a long review and it got deleted because the nickname was taken already. What?! Why delete my whole review? Give me an option to change it. Last night I tried to send an important invite for or wedding reception, attached a picture we designed and instead it sent out a completely blank photo (when I clicked on the blank pic it would show the full picture so I falsely assumed it would work. My bad there for not testing it, but I also didn't upload a black photo). It looked like spam and tacky instead of slick and fun. Then I had to upgrade to premium ($15) to resend it with the picture I uploaded. That finally worked. Really bummed about the experience, wish the program worked flawlessly and would love a refund.
Great App for Invites
by Happy Hob Nobber on 2017/10/25 23:55
I have used Hob Nob for several birthday parties and my son’s prom. I love how you can message each other and upload pictures. And, as for the family that couldn’t attend party, at least they were able to see the photos and send a thoughtful Happy Birthday message. I mostly like how other people that attended party could upload their photos also. I absolutely love this app. Planning my 50th birthday party and plan to use Hob Nob. I looked at Evite and wasn’t impressed. Thanks for the great app!!!
Semi functional
by The 4th Phife on 2018/11/13 16:32
I like the looks of this and am even willing to pay for one month for this event BUT I am getting frustrated trying to set it up properly. I keep adding the location of the event, it finds it on the map and when it goes back to the invitation there is no location. I have restarted it and tried several times to no avail. Also, is there an option to see a preview of the entire invitation? Update: The recent update to the app fixed the location issue! I am so far pretty satisfied with the app- will see how it goes post event.
Terrible! DO NOT USE! WASTE OF MONEY!
by SammaiBaby on 2017/11/22 07:17
I heard about this app from a family member who’s said that it’s a good feature. Especially to help go green when planning events. I used this to help plan my wedding and it’s been a nightmare to use since. When I send updates to my guests and wedding party, no one is receiving the messages. This glitch is a big inconvenience and rip off, since I’m paying money for the features they provide and these same features aren’t working!!!!! It has somewhat affected the efficiency of my wedding planning. Due to the fact that now I have to message all my guests in text messages, when the app was suppose to prevent this. If I knew this one was trash, I would’ve never used it to help plan such an important and special day to me!!
User friendly!!
by Momma KJK on 2020/09/17 14:18
This app with the 12 th one I downloaded before found one that would be easy to use when tech challenged & under stress. My mom had passed away and I just couldn’t focus, needed to get invites sent quickly so doing them electronically was my only option. I was very suprised at how much work the app did for me and only cost me several bucks! I received tons of compliments on the final product and couldn’t have been happier with with end result!! Thank you Hobnob😊
Nice app but disappointed in the upgrade fee!
by Babbling Brooke on 2017/11/07 02:23
Overall this is a nice app. Great alternative to Evite since you can text out the invites. A few months ago I would have give them 5 stars because I’ve used this for numerous events and have loved it. However, tonight when I went to use it i found out that it was very restricted and I have to pay a monthly “upgrade” fee to get all of the features. I don’t mind paying a one time fee for an app but I don’t like being forced into a monthly fee option to send out invites. It’s not worth it to me when I only send out 6-8 a year so I will have to find an alternative.
Good App
by Oddly7 on 2020/09/27 17:46
I like it! I’ve been using it for 2 years. There are 2 people in my contacts who never get the invite. But other than that, I’ve used it to host at least 10 parties. I don’t care for the predesigned flyer. I make my own and upload them. The flyers do need to be a certain size 1080px x 1920px. I like the Zoom meeting link option that was added. I would like for it to have a thank you note option that is similar to the invite. I thought it had automatic photo request option. But that didn’t occur after my last party.
Not user friendly
by mewell20 on 2020/02/14 13:44
Trying to copy the address on the invite to put in gps and will not allow. Therefore inconvenient to have to go between app and gps to enter the address. Signing up was not like we are used to. It took me to create an event immediately when I was only signing up to view and respond to an invite, fr the invite’s link in the text I received for the event. Does not allow me to go into my account to change settings. This app seems like a great idea and fun. Needs more work though for it to feel seemless. Seeing all the other reviews here makes it more so. Would love to continue to use it but changes definitely are needed.
Awesome App for Parties!!!
by smj621 on 2018/06/24 14:58
This was the perfect app, I was looking for a free app that I could make a birthday card with and send to contacts on my phone and presto! This app did all that, plus some! I was able to send the invites to cell # and emails and when they rsvp’d I got it as a notification than I got reminders when the party was coming up! Now I’m seeing if I can send out some sort of thank u...I’ll really be impressed if thank u’s can be done too!!!! Thanks hobnob!! 😁👍👏🤩
Cute app. Plus one option is annoying
by NVAdamzz on 2019/12/13 22:05
It’s cute and convenient enough so far. It’s nice being able to have people RSVP right on the app and you get a head count and notifications. I’m not a fan of the fact that they automatically give guests the option of a plus one and there’s no way to disable that. Every event is not plus one eligible and people tend to not read the event details to know to disregard the option. I’m not trying to pay for someone I don’t know to show up to my event, eat my food and drink my liquor without bringing a gift. You need to do something about that.
Love this app
by Pery.lda on 2018/01/11 03:02
All features of this app are really useful and blows your mind how did i ever invited people anywhere before. However, the only downside was that after having this app for 2 years and not paying for it, my trial has expired. The event that i have created last week and is happening in 2 days is not accessible unless i pay for a subscription. It would be great to give people heads up in notifications and maybe let people with events in process access them before forcing payment.
WAS awesome, not so much anymore.
by apelila2 on 2018/05/28 19:41
I have been using this app since 2015 and got all my friends using it too. Didn’t realize it’s basically worthless unless you subscribe now. I have a major aversion to monthly subscriptions, especially for something I use 4-5x a year. Who is throwing parties monthly or more??? Recently, a friend sent an invite and I didn’t get the usual text notification. Then, it expired, because she only paid for one month. Now I can no longer see the event details! It also seems like unless the host AND all the guests pay for the app, it’s not going to function well. So disappointing because I used to LOVE this app. I would support a one time fee and ads don’t bother me.
Very Nice-Just a few Suggestions for Improvement
by B. E. M. II on 2017/11/27 22:29
I think this app is very helpful and user friendly! My suggestion for improvement would be to allow the users to have more freedom with adjusting the template to fit what we need. Not every event is so simple to only need the event, date, time and location. At times I wanted to add more to the flyer but wasn’t able. And some of the templates do not capture the entire date and time and cuts off. If we could manipulate these more like adobe spark this would be awesome!
So sad
by Jeradswife on 2017/11/12 17:09
I was in love with this app for months! Now they charge you if you invite more than 10 people per month. Why wouldn’t I just send a FREE group text to 10 people? Additionally, my husband and I have several groups that we invite to things each month but we are not allowed to share a plan. It doesn’t make sense for us to spend all that money on an invite app when Evite is FREE! We made a painful switch back and pay nothing, plus the added benefit of Evites familiarity and email capability. If you ask me, it would’ve been more beneficial for hobnob to just start using ads than to begin charging their Faithful customers.
Great app & great customer support
by Tori L H on 2018/12/06 10:36
The app itself is super easy to use and makes planning a larger event a breeze. But I was also very happy with how responsive and helpful their support team was when I encountered a problem with having multiple accounts and the wrong one linked to the App Store for subscription purposes. The low price is very worth it, you can cancel at any time, reinstate if needed and the support is excellent.
Total scam
by Tigerlillym on 2020/12/04 07:08
I purchased a year subscription of Hobnob for various parties I planned to throw. I cancelled the subscription because I didn’t end up using it as much as I thought I would but I still have until September 2021 to use it because I paid upfront for a year. When I go to login now it says “oops there is a problem, try again later.” I try again “later” and find the same problem. For days now. I know I have my login correct. They won’t let me login to use a service I have paid for. I’m assuming because I cancelled? No clue. I updated the app. I attempted to contact customer service but can’t get that to work either. Too stupid. Don’t get tricked like I did.
