    I like being able to view events without all the noise that comes with the main Facebook app. The main issue with this app is it does not seem to be QAed very well by its designers, developers, and testing team. I come across major, obvious bugs in basic functionality on a regular basis. For example, the app often displays far away events even though the name of the app is LOCAL. Even the Trending Nearby section is full of events that are literally on the other side of the globe. Feels more like a Beta or Alpha testing version sometimes. I report all of these issues but the Local team is slow to address them. They are such major, obvious bugs they shouldn't exist in the first place. Hard to believe this app is made by such highly paid people. Still, it is a good alternative to the main Facebook app for viewing Facebook Events and hopefully it will just get better and less buggy with time. Full Review

    This is just another way to get $ucked over by Facebook. This offers nothing new just like messenger a waste of time and space on my phone. Face book should leave things in the one app Full Review

    Not great. There should be a category for family or kids friendly events. Nothing much to find relevant in Dublin area, maybe other EU cities it works better Full Review

    Just downloaded. I think that it would be convenient if you could hold down on an event to pull up some choices like; remove event from this list, show all events with these artists, remove all events with a particular artist from the event and anything else the people want Full Review

    Great app for easy access and finding local events and attractions! One issue with the app - it is missing the About section. If you open same event on Facebook, you can see the details of the event in the About section, however in this app, the About section is empty. Full Review

    This app just shows the same events I see in Facebook. It doesn't do anything different or new. And can't see a use fotos it. Full Review

    Jared ONeill Published date: February 2, 2018

    Awesome app! I just wish that when I search for something that (if my town doesn't have any event) it'll show me the nearest one. The search terms seem kind of vague too. I was looking for a hip hop show, and all it kept doing was show me the country artists at a local bar. Great start though facebook Full Review

    Erin Haray Published date: February 3, 2018

    This would be great if the information were current. Business closed 10 years or more are showing up. My business has the incorrect address and photos that do not belong to me but there is no way to change it. I hope no one used this app in my local area because it will guide my customers to the wrong location. You would think they would take the information from facebook... Full Review

    So I really really love this app for events, but it's terrible for finding restaurants. When I searched vegan/vegetarian, it showed me a restaurant that has been closed for over a year, and doesn't indicate anywhere that it is no longer there. So I don't really trust it for things other than events. Full Review

    Lots of glitches (ie: "more details" doesn't expand the data, following a notification doesn't take you to the right place, I could go on). This app would be very useful if functioning properly. I find myself going to the main Facebook app to do things this can't. Full Review

    Brittany Clawson Published date: February 15, 2018

    This app is worthless. It shows a bunch of closed or nonexistent restaurants in my town. Also our business has 2 different rating between facebook and this app. It crashes every time I open it. Full Review

    Julianne Clem Published date: January 24, 2018

    This could be a great app... But there are obvious issues. It knows where I live, so why recommend events thousands of miles away? There are no settings to input preferences either. This alone is a deal breaker. The app is NOT silent when phone is on silent. Unable to view fb profile pages from this app. Messenger doesn't have an issue going back and forth. Full Review

    Ashly Rose Published date: January 5, 2018

    Total waste of my time. You can't choose multiple places like Massachusetts towns and Rhode Island towns, you have to keep changing the location everytime you want to search in that area which is annoying as hell. Also when searching for specific places/events it just tells me nothing is around when I search even when I change the dates and times, I even changed the time frames from January 6th to February 28th, and only one options popped up but on the original facebook app there are dozens of options for what I searched for. I see way more options on the original facebook app so I am switching back to that and deleting this. Full Review

    I was shocked at the things this app had the places it didn't have. One of our States most historic lighthouse and a few of the most popular restaurants. I couldn't find a way to add anything. Full Review

    Brandon Gentry Published date: February 6, 2018

    So much potential. This is definitely a beta version, and should be labeled as such. In my immediate area, Quincy, MA, I searched restaurants and found over a dozen with misinformation. Including several clam shacks that are closed for the winter but show as "opens at 11am" as well as misleading restaurant profiles that were created by GrubHub to deceive customers. GrubHub is a predator to small businesses, and Facebook allowing them to set up fake restaurant profiles linking to their high fee ordering system is a sham. There needs to be a way to report incorrect information within the app and suggest corrections. Full Review

    I do like the interface BUT I'd rather manage events IN the Facebook app. I'm missing events with it outside the app. I looked up events more when I was IN Facebook. I'm not using the app. So I'm uninstalling it so I can have my Events button in Facebook again. Full Review

    Brett Miller Published date: January 25, 2018

    So it tells me that my friends are going or are interested in an event, but there is no link to view the event directly, Instead, you have to search for it and hope it appears, or click interested and then go into facebook to view. Basic programming 101 Full Review

    It's a nice concept, but I really wish there was a "kids" category for finding public events just for kids! It's always hard to find those. Full Review

    It would actually be useful if you received notification reminders for upcoming events and ones you are invited to or could at least sync with your calendar. I received several invites to events and had no clue. Full Review
