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

What's New

If updates were children, we would have to name each one, which could get a little odd.

We would probably name this one "Better iOS8 support, improved Details screen, better photo and video selection stability, new dark keyboard accessibility option, and enhanced timezone support for event start and end dates." Of course that's just the first name.

What's the middle name you ask? "Stability and bug fixes"

Yeah, that's a really long name, kind of a mess when it comes to introductions. We would have to come up with a nickname for sure, something like "Bonfyre 4.5.5" perhaps.

App Description

Moreover, Bonfyre is an experience network that helps you share private photos and videos in a group chat around what you’re doing and who you’re doing it with. No noisy news feeds, not your entire social network like other sharing apps and websites; just simple picture messaging that supports how you live your real life.
