Introducing Howbout, the social planning 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
