Howbout App

Planning events and meeting with friends is difficult at the best of times, let alone with coronavirus! Because of this, we’ve teamed up with Howbout, a free app all about helping you plan your social life.

What is Howbout?

Howbout is a smart social planning and calendar app that allows you to instantly find when you’re all free, easily organise plans and quickly manage your social life.

Howbout can help by:

  • offering groups of friends and societies a new free app to easily organise plans – to combat loneliness and the faff of planning
  • easily organise virtual plans (Covid-19 friendly!) with the one-tap integration with Zoom, Hangouts, Skype and more.
  • set up flat, house and halls calendars to make organising plans and keeping on top of reminders really easily
  • allowing users to create accounts for free linked to their phone number, without needing a Facebook account
