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.
What if I live outside NZ?
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.
