Our Rating: ★★★☆☆ :: PLAIN SOCIALIZING :: Read Our Full Review >>

Bonfyre is a nice idea for a private place to share photos and event details, but it lacks some important features.

What's New

Our latest and greatest boldly charges ahead to subtly add more features and fun. "Bold and subtle?!" you say, "how can that be?" I don't know either, I just know it's a crazy fun world we live in, and Bonfyre likes to play it cool.

The astute will notice some new emoticons added to the autocomplete list, some new manual reload controls in the chat screen, enhancements to the survey feature, corrections to some reported problems, new loading screens, and maybe even things I have yet to discover myself!

Yeah, you heard it, new loading screens. The excitement is palpable around here, but seriously, all jokes aside, we feel this is a really solid release for everyone.

Pro-tip: If you're feeling bored or courageous, try posting a selfie with the hash tag #autohearts! And if you have any trouble, don't forget hey@bonfyreapp.com. Tackling issues and helping people are two of our three favorite things. Right after cake.

App Description

Bonfyre isn't just a handsome, fun messaging app for friends and family... It's practically ridiculous how much more it can be, like waking up finding all your shoes have turned into bowls of jello. Seriously, it’s that ridiculous.

Bonfyre is a group connecting super tool that gives you the power to control your social circles, share photos and videos with only the people you want, tell stories through the raw power of imagination, and make you feel like a better person (maybe).

Use it for replacing group texting, planning weddings, connecting at conferences, re-living birthday parties, organizing the fight against evil, or even the classic everyday discussion of where to go for lunch. Heck, even a diary no one else will ever see. It's all up to you. Private, comfortable, accessible chatting.

Imagine worry free video and picture sharing: no polluted feeds, no stalkers, no trust issues. You know who you're talking to, and only they will ever see what you post. Bonfyre creates a private vault around your experiences - the only content you see is from the bonfyres you participate in. It's like a digital fireproof safe, inside a whole second safe, disguised as an inconspicuous box of milk, all for organizing and protecting your shared moments.

And Bonfyre works in the professional scene just as smoothly as the personal. (Is suavely a word?) If you're hosting an event or aiming to add a social ingredient to your company culture, we have a treat for you. The Bonfyre app has plenty of upgrades and customization aspects for you, including content management and moderation, surveys and announcements, custom branding, and many ways to make your event “paperless”. If this sounds as intriguing as, say, a giant Christmas gift with your name on it, let us put on our business suits and contact us at hey@bonfyreapp.com to find out what more we can do for you.
