When we set out to build the fastest way to get friends together, we wanted a name that was literal, trustworthy, easy to understand and easy to say. We picked PlanSnap.
Earlier this year we were named as App of the Day in 140 countries by Apple, and one of the best apps for quality time with friends by Google. We’ve loved helping people all around the world quickly make all kinds of plans with their real friends in real life.
As we really got into the details of why it was so hard to get friends together in order to build a dramatically better way, we also understood more deeply why it matters — now more than ever. …
We’re thrilled to announce that PlanSnap has been awarded government funding by Innovate UK to work on an exciting project with The University of Kent, and we’re hiring!
The £150,000 grant is equity-free, and will allow us to hire a Data Science Associate to lead a project that uses data science and psychology to further our mission to be the global go-to way to get friends together for any kind of social occasion.
Team PlanSnap will be supported by four academics across three different academic disciplines from the University of Kent — Computing, Engineering and Psychology — led by Dr Fernando Otero who specialises in machine learning at the School of Computing. …
What are you doing THIS WEEKEND? We’re offering you the chance to win two all-inclusive tickets to the UK’s hottest new festival — but you gotta be quick.
Bastille, MistaJam, Lorde and Horse Meat Disco are all on the line up, but you might not even notice because the daytime activities are epic.
You can swim, kayak or paddleboard on the lake, try pottery, a sound bath or some hip hop yoga and so much more. Did we mention it includes free food and drink?
This incredible festival you might not have heard of is WeWork SummerCamp, and it’s fast becoming the new standard for festivalling in the UK since it landed on our shores in 2017 from New York. …
To celebrate the launch of PlanSnap we’ve partnered with Flat Iron Square to bring you an incredible offer — your first round of Rum and Red Bull Tropical for you and 9 mates is on the house. Scroll down to claim yours.
It’s finally spring, and that means light nights and after-work antics are back on the agenda again. The question for Londoners is always WHERE. Where is central enough for all your mates to make it over before the sun sets? Where has inside and outside space? Where can you actually get a seat and get served?
We have the answer: Flat Iron Square in Bankside. This under-the-radar takeover of seven railway arches and a Grade II listed building is a stone’s throw from London Bridge, and features a tantalising line-up of bars, food vendors, restaurants, street food trucks, outdoor space AND a live music venue. …
Londoners have a knack for finding the most unusual and epic to-dos around the city. Hey, we were voted the city with the most things to do, so we’ve got to have some pretty unusual ones in the mix.
We know, the photos are UNREAL. The HotTug experience looks like Photoshop. But it’s not! There are actually hot tubs that float around the London canal, replete with sailor hats and a space to stow your drinks. Seriously, this is a thing — and you can do it too.
To celebrate the launch of PlanSnap we’ve partnered with HotTug to give away a FREE HotTug session! With space for you and 5 mates (7 if you like to get cosy), this is going to be a day (or night) to remember. …
We’re thrilled to announce that PlanSnap is LIVE in both app stores!
Apple App Store: apple.co/2zGhlHS

PlanSnap is an app that gets friends together, fast. It gets everyone to agree on the details of any kind of social plan so it can actually happen — even if your friends don’t have the app.
How it all began
Every friendship group has a super planner — the one who holds the group together by doing the thankless work of making plans happen. They’re the people who book tickets and reserve tables, scour the internet for vital logistics, and make sure the details work for everyone. …
