kickit is a map-based social app that makes it easy to hang out with friends and coordinate plans. kickit lets you see which of your friends are down to hang, what they’re up to, and where they’re at. It's essentially a social version of Find My Friends meets FB events.
See all of your options before commiting to plans or easily get all of your friends together without back-and-forth texting in 10 different group chats.
This app solves many of the annoying problems we go through in our social lives. No more:
Less social pressure / akwardness:
Kickit is only fun if you make the effort to get your friends on it.
You can easily invite your friends you want to hang out with to download the app by going to the “add friends” page. Or you can just share the download link however you’d like.
We will never, ever sell your data. Period. We anonymize your data on our back-end so even we don’t know who you are and what you’re up to.
Other social apps are focused on maximizing your time on the screen so they can sell your data and serve you ads. We aspire to build a platform much better aligned with our users, acting as their concierge over time to book their reservations, pay for their meals and buy their concert tickets.
kickit is a map based social app and therefore requests your location. It lets your friends see where you are so they can easily make plans. Additionally, your location enables your friends to know when you’re nearby.
Only your approved friends can see your location. You're in control of when you share your location and who you share it with.
Did we mention that we will never sell your data? Good. We mean it
Setting your location to “Always Allow” provides your friends reliable location data in real time.
The "Always Allow" setting leads to more serendipitous moments and fewer missed opportunities. If I'm out and my friend happened to be out at the bar next door, I'd love to know so we can meet up
No, it will not. We are using the top technology to optimize for battery life. You can give it a try and test for yourself! A full day with kickit will spend about 4% of your battery.
Yes. You are always in control. On the main map screen, we’ve placed a big toggle for you to easily cut off your location.
If you turn your location off, you won’t be able to see your friends’ locations either. This is to deter people from lurking on the app.
So you can know when your friend:
Notifications are all there for you. We hate when apps spam us with notifications, which is why we’ve built kickit to only send the most important notifications
You have full control. Once you become friends with someone, you can adjust the location sharing setting for each one. There will be 3 main settings:
There is also an option to “Unfriend” someone altogether and not have to set a location setting.
From your friends list page, you can unfriend and block someone. They will never be able to see you on anything again.
