This is a short list of our most frequently asked questions.

Where can I use Gratia?

Gratia works in several places around the world but right now, our focus is on testing it out in NZ. We are adding more great NZ content and there are some signficant software upgrades coming soon. Then we will have our official launch party in November! We plan to start promoting Gratia outside NZ in the first quarter of 2017. If you are in NZ or planning to come here, download Gratia from the App or Play stores to experience our rich and growing content throughout the country. If you are not coming soon, no biggie. You can still download Gratia and have a play...

What platforms is Gratia on?

Gratia is available on iPhone and Android. There are links on this website.

Will it work on any phone?

You need to have a recent smartphone to run Gratia. Either an Apple iPhone 5 or higher and the equivalent of a Samsung Galaxy S4 or higher.

What does Gratia cost?

Gratia is free to download and a free service for users.

I love Gratia! How can I get involved?

We are looking for partners at various levels. We already have several people providing us with photo content for our social media and blogs. If you have great photos and would like to share, add #gratiaapp to your Instagram posts hashtags. If you are a blogger or orgnisation or busines looking for a new avenue to market for your content, contact us at hello@gratiaapp. It does not need to be travel specific content; we are also interested in health and fitness, food plus activities specifically for families and children. We have some great ideas on how to create value for both us and our partners, so message us now.

How are you protecting my privacy when I use Gratia?

Gratia takes your privacy seriously but we also wanted to create an app that gives you the option to connect easily with other people. So here are some key things to know: We will not be making use of or sharing any personal data you provide except to permit you to log in to Gratia. We will use aggregated anonymous data for various commercial purposes in the future, but never in a way that could intentionally identify you. Your chat messages are encrypted and we cannot read them, or view any content from within your chats unless you share this with us (for example as a screen shot). Similarly, we cannot view any groups you create. We will also not be data mining your messages, even at an anonymous aggregated level. We consider all such information to be confidential to you and the people you connect with. Gratia provides some ways you can connect to people you do not already know. The connection in Gratia occurs through chat. If you are concerned about the conduct of someone you are linked to in chat, you can block the contact. If you feel this is not a sufficient action, you can report the person to us from within Gratia, including a screen shot of the offending messages. We will review anyone reported in the context of our Terms of Service and Privacy Statement. These can be found linked to this website and from within the app.

What can I do with the app?

Gratia allows you to find things to do and people to do them with. It's packed full of great activity ideas and allows you to schedule and create events with new and existing friends. Gratia also includes an in app chat service that allows you to stay connected with your friends and organise group activities.

What content will be on the app?

It is a very rich content environment with the broadest possible range of things to do around NZ, both free and paid activities. Every week or so, we will be adding more content so that it is by far the richest source of things to do throughout NZ by the the time of our launch party in November. Our content will be supported by our blog and several content partners. These will include bloggers as well as businesses and other organisations engaged in travel and things to do and see. If something is not there, no problem as you’ll be able to add it yourself after November.

Ok, sounds enticing but is that all?

We have some twists in Gratia that make it more than a directory service with chat. In addition to selecting and sharing specific activities, you can select a broad hobby or interest. If others are interested in the hobby, they will show up as potential friends. You can then connect through Gratia, organise and share specific activites and set up your own groups for staying in touch around your hobby. You can also find extra content selected by our team or one of our partners through our theme feature. Themes allow more specific targetting of activities around interests, as well as a way for partners to add their own ideas and content to Gratia. Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to be a content partner.

What if I live outside NZ?

You can use Gratia to find NZ content from anywhere. There is also some content for several other places around the world, including Australia, North America and the UK. But our immediate focus is NZ as we build up our user base, add content and stress test the app. Contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to be involved with us as we expand outside NZ in the first quarter of 2017.

What if I don't have Facebook?

Right now, you need to have a Facebook account to sign in to Gratia. If you are intent on being a Facebook hold out, don't panic, as we will be adding alternative sign in options soon.

Is Gratia just another freebie that pushes ads at me?

There will be no push advertising in Gratia - we hate that stuff ourselves! We are all about providing you with fun and interesting things to discover and share. You will be able to find commercial activities and products through Gratia, but this is for you to find when you are interested.
