This Crazy App Will Let You See If Your Friends Are Out Partying (So You Don't Miss Out)

Always know when a good time is going down.

Alright, guys, I'm going to be honest with you: I can't even express how many times I've been out, in the middle of having a super fun time... only to realize that I lost my entire group of friends somewhere in the crowd.

No lie, this actually puts a huge damper on my night. It's just too much to handle, TBH.

You've got to deal with the fact that you're now alone; your friends are probably off having a good time somewhere else that you don't know about; and you're not sure if and when they'll let you know where they are.

Which is exactly why Zenly is such a life saver.

Zenly is a new, super popular social app that blends location sharing and messaging into one awesome, useful package.

It's pretty much perfect for figuring out where your friends are and what they're up to, or for figuring out where all the fun events are going down in the city. Many are even comparing it to the next Snapchat.

Because, let's be real - no one likes missing out, and Zenly's basically built around making sure that you don't. #fomo

Take McGill Carnival as an example. The app was lit during the week because everyone was using it to find their friends, share their location with their friends, and make sure they weren't missing out on an event.

Just in case you’re not into partying with your friends, take a second to think about all the times you’ve been on campus, bored out of your mind, wondering who’s nearby to grab a bite with. Zenly's got you covered for that, too.

Best part? It's super simple to use.

All you need to do is open Zenly to see where your friends are, and where you need to be. You can even chat with them if you want to - and yes, no worries, you can send them as many emojis as you like.

And if you get lost at Igloofest this year? The app will literally turn into a compass, directing you to your friends. And the app even integrates your favourite transportation apps (like Uber!), so if you're far from your friends, Zenly's still got you covered.

The app works for tons of other things, too. Like if you're going skiing this winter; all you need to do is turn on "ski maps", and you can literally see where your friends are on the slopes.

Or, if you're up to no good and don't want to be seen,you can even put yourself in ghost mode for as long as you'd like.

The days of wandering around aimlessly, bored and confused, wondering where everyone is? Yeah, they're long gone, guys. Rejoice.

Sounds like the most useful app ever? Then check out Zenly on their website or Facebook for more information.
