One of my favorite apps
I’ve been using this app for a couple years and suggest it to others all the time. I’m disappointed in the location search in the latest version, however. In the current version I get multiple communities in my area — this is great. However — in the previous version, when looking for a meeting in another location and the name of a City, meetings for surrounding cities were included (i.e., an entry for Walnut Creek, CA included meetings in Concord, Pleasant Hill, Pinole, Orinda, and other cities covered by the Service Center for that area). In the latest version 3.0.28, the only hits returned are for the City input, so multiple city searches are required for meetings in surrounding communities. I don’t see a way to expand the search for +10 or 20 miles. This may not be an issue in some areas, but for many of us in multi-City areas it’s not always as easy.

What a wonderful surprise. After moving to a new area, one of the first things I did was research new meeting locations. I was pleasantly surprised to find this AA meeting finder app. What a great way for Alcoholics Anonymous to step into the 21st Century and provide our younger (in heart and in age) members with a easy, fast way to look for up-to-date meeting locations that include Zoom links. With our “new normal” reality of social distancing and spur-of-the-moment changes, it’s of ultimate importance that our community help 12-step members find the information they need. The pandemic has caused a great struggle for many alcoholics by losing the one thing that keeps us spiritually fit - connection with one another. This app makes it easier for members to find ways to keep that connection. Thank you to the developers in helping to facilitate that connection.

Service at its finest
Beautifully implemented app, faster and easier than my Central Office web meeting look-up that uses the same data. Perfect for, among other things, my shifts on the local hotline. Thank you (from Portland)! The folding chair icon is a bonus. It's exactly right (even though none of my current meetings use folding chairs ). Two suggestions for a 5th star, based on the things I immediately looked for and wasn't able to find (but recognize they might already be there): (1) a sort-by-distance option, and (2) a pick-list for available meeting lists; currently, it seems we have to guess ("Boston" got me meetings in southern NH).

Recovery right at your fingertips!
I will make this short...I have been sober for 44 years. I have approached sobriety in an “old school” kind of way. But this app BLOWS me away. It makes it remarkably easy for newcomers and people with long term sobriety to access e wry meeting in the area. With the pandemic changing everything I was concerned many would fall through the cracks. This app even gives you a direct link to online zoom meeting. Just point and click and you are involved in a meeting! You can schedule it so meetings are integrated into your calendar for reminders. You can mark meetings as favorites so you don’t have to search. God bless the people who created this app. It is a lifesaver!

Meetings info dropped//Updated
When I logged in today just a few nearby meetings (not the closest by any means) appeared. Changing times, distances , and meeting type had no effect. As well, all of my “favorites” were gone. I deleted and re-loaded the app on both my iPhone and iPad multiple times with no improvement??? Update: further research indicated that the problem must have been with data provided by my local San Antonio intergroup… when I checked addresses in two other cities where I am familiar with groups and meetings, I found full meeting lists. Since then, the local meetings here have been restored. I have updated my evaluation!

Getting better all the time
I love this app! It now keeps my list of multiple locations and favorites. It has a mileage slider to pin down the location search. These features are so helpful when I am traveling. People are doing a great job of keeping this app updated. Often there is a link to the group or district’s home page or a phone number to call. The Meeting Finder lists face-to-face, zoom, and hybrid meetings. It tells you if a meeting is open to the general public or “closed” to include only people who feel they may have a problem with alcohol. And it’s free! It works, it really does.

Updated meetings
My only real complaint has nothing to do with the app itself. Have been trying to find meetings that will fit my schedule in a remote area and I will use the app and I will spend the time driving to these places only to find out that they no longer have that meeting, or it’s just happening at a different time. I wish the people who are holding the meetings would contact the organization and let them know that things have changed so people like me who have a tight work schedule can actually depend upon the information that’s given.

Great app with minor flaws
This is a great app that does what it’s supposed to very well. I only deduct one star because the app (for example) misses meetings that are only two miles away from me when set to current location. The meetings are technically in a different town, but still super close. Only way i can see all the meetings is if i switch between current location and specific towns. This is fine if you live in a rural area, but if you’re in a metropolitan area you miss a lot of meetings.

Disgusted and offended
Ive had this app for awhile as I debate on attending meetings. I thought i would try to attend an online meeting just now. I joined. There was no meeting. Only one person with a female name. I left and rejoined just to check that i didn’t do anything wrong. When i entered again the camera for the chelsea woman was on and it was a man with his pants down and penis out. Delete app. Never again. Not even gunna try going to a meeting now. Don’t know how to complain to the meeting with the link. Little scared to submit a message via the contact link I found from the apps website. So here we are, complaining how the first time i try to join a virtual meeting and i got penis instead. I would like to be more angry and curse more but I won’t. Thanks for nothing.

Inaccurate Meeting Source
This is a nifty app that I found listed on a website that claims to service my District. However, to my knowledge, my District did not ask for this site to service us nor is it operated as a result of a need for our District’s meetings. The meeting information is not up to date as the app claims to be. That is most likely due to the source of the meeting information being inaccurately published by the VAPSC site. The site is also not affiliated with our Area. Therefore, the information listed here discussing the app’s daily and accurate meeting update process has been compromised as a result of this inaccurate sourcing. Publishing inaccurate meeting information from an outdated, uninformed source is actually a disservice to members seeking meeting dates and times.

Can’t do AA without this app
We are so lucky to live in a day and age where no matter where you are no matter what the time, we can connect with people in recovery. This app is essential to making sure you not only discover what meetings work for you, but you actually get in the middle of AA and become apart of the fellowship. I’m so grateful to have access to my recovery in such a user friendly way. Great for finding meetings while on vacation or work related travel.

Neither progress or perfection
App removed LGBT options showing no respect for their sober siblings who need LGBT meetings. Just because I don’t speak Spanish or need childcare doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be listed any less than it means that gay meetings shouldn’t be listed because straight people don’t need them. We are people who usually wouldn’t mix and yet the makers of this app seem to only respect a portion of those people and their needs. AA is for everyone and if a paper directory lists the different needs alongside the meetings so people can easily find a room that will help keep them sober then an app should do the same. If people have complained and don’t like it, they can avert their eyes. Our sobriety is more important than the ignorance of some users.

Use this daily
I love this app. I use it everyday to read Daily Reflections. I like that I have it with me all the time. I also use it for to get directions for all my local meetings (because I like to get traffic data) and I don’t know the names of all the meeting locations. Of course it’s super helpful when I’m out of town to find a nearby meeting. It’s the best thing in AA since the 4th edition Big Book. Incredibly helpful to me and many people I know.

This app was so much better before the update. I live in Baton Rouge Louisiana and it used to have all the meetings listed in BR. When I type in Baton Rouge , LA it will only give me meetings near Baton Rouge. It’s terrible, apparently there are zero meetings in Baton Rouge and all meetings are in Springfield or Napoleonville or Denham Springs, or other cities. I don’t understand why typing in the city only gives me other meetings in other cities, some nowhere near where I live. Says you can search by meeting name, but even that doesn’t work, just says meeting basically does not exist. I wish you guys hadn’t done anything to the app, it was much easier to use and it actually worked. I do not recommend this app, as it does not work.

Best meeting list app EVER
I am always a bit frustrated whenever I’m looking for meetings outside NH, because Mass isn’t hooked up with Meeting Guide yet :(. There is NO other app out there as user-friendly as this one is. And only click on the “directions” tab automatically brings you to the navigation app of your choice? Rad. And the “roll the dice” option is fun, too. Times, type, favorites, distance based on town name or your precise location (your choice), etc. This app is perfection.

Attendance app?
I can’t believe there isn’t an app that logs your meetings. I imagine there are alot of people that need proof of attendance for probation or court and keep losing their sign in sheet. I think a lot of people would just like to keep track of all the meetings they go to and share it with their friends on Facebook. Someone should definitely create an app for this or add it to this one. People could have their own profiles and add reviews to each meeting so you can see who goes and what they say about it. Id pay for that app.

Current Location Will Not Work! Otherwise a Complete list of AA Meetings
On the first version I could just choose my location and where ever I was it would show me the closest meeting, now when I choose the current location option it uses the last location I added. It is frustrating, because that is why the app was so awesome, other wise I can go online and figure out what meetings are in what area!

Well done! Ignore the critics.
This app is great for finding meetings when it has the necessary information. Of course it is dependent upon the data provided. Most of the folks with the overly harsh reviews are mistakenly criticizing the app for underlying data issues. I live in Dallas, TX and it is close to perfection. Great help and much easier than our Intergroup website meeting finder that was retired in lieu of this (and it was good, so that says a lot). Great work, Meeting Guide!

Great Tool
This app is all the rage of my home group. My only concern is the accuracy of distance to meetings. As an example, when a meeting is listed as being 6 miles away and I pull up one of the GPS driving options I find the distance to in fact be 36 miles. Are the original miles as the crow flies or as the man drives ???

Great app for this beginner!
This was shared with me at one of my first meetings and has proved invaluable! I have used it when traveling and will continue to do so. It put me in touch with local meetings quickly and I use it almost daily to check if there is a group I have been meaning to go to and can fit into my schedule that day. Have shared this with a lot of people!

So incredibly helpful
This app make it so easy for me to find AA meetings and find the support I needed. My only recommendation to improve the app for newcomers would be to include some explainers around the lingo and meeting types like “closed,” “open,” “big book,” “step meeting,” etc. This was kind of intimidating to me at the start and confusing.

Great app for finding AA meetings!
This app is amazing for finding AA meetings in your area. I love how you can “favorite” the meetings that you like or plan on checking out. There’s also a feature that allows you to add meetings to your phone’s calendar to help you remember the days and times. Highly recommend, especially for newcomers!

It was a God Shot how I was introduced to this app. I was thrilled it had all I had been saying the paper schedules did not have, but knew how ecologically irresponsible it would be to add. I share with everyone when I see an opportunity. Excited for this to be an option on the AAWS Site!! Way to make meetings more accessible as well as save the planet!

Find a meeting close and fast
I work for our local TriCounty Intergroup. This app has changed everything for our area. Meeting updates are faster easier and we can get new information out to the AA. Easy to import and export our info to our ‘where and when’ makes it awesome. I’m so glad to see AAWS take the leap of faith, this app is fantastic.

A Must Have
Hi, I’m Kate and I’m an alcoholic. This app makes life so much easier. It is a must for anyone that travels or does service with the hotline. It sometimes may be a little off depending on how quickly each group updates their status with the central office. But it is definitely better than the pamphlets.

Still garbage app - dangerous as it can misdirect newcomers.
We’ve been trying to get a correction to a meeting listed incorrectly for a year and a half (wrong town). Supposedly the info comes from Area, but our info is correct on the Area website. Did an end run last year to get it fixed and now it’s worn again. We had newcomers tonight who got lost as a result. Use the local area websites, as I’m sure there’s much more wrong than this. No easy interface to get anything corrected.

Used to be better
I have relied on this app says it was introduced but in the last few weeks, location update have taken a very long time. I live in the national capital region we travel a lot around the beltway. Sometimes it takes up to an hour for the app to adjust and that doesn’t leave very little good when I’m looking for a meeting. I hope they fix this problem soon.

Finally! This was an overdue app
This is a very well-designed geo-located meeting finder app that allows you to share meetings easily or get directions. I wish that you could broaden the distance with the slider because there are meetings that I can’t see sometimes. But this is great - I recommend it!

Excellent resource, but please add map display of meeting locations
Simple, up-to-date meeting list and geographical search. It would be perfect if you could switch to a map view of the meetings in the list. It's only so helpful to just see the approximate distance from the location you select.

This has really helped me to find more women’s meetings for me to try out that I didn’t know existed. My only suggestion would be that hopefully CA, HA, CMA, and other fellowships could be added. There’s some really amazing meetings out there in addition to AA, and it would be so great if that could happen!
