If you want to remember what it’s like to feel the shallow rejection of high school wondering why you didn’t make it into the group of mean girls, then you should “apply.” Only to find that if you do actually get in, the only thing measuring creativity and professionalism is the ability to appear cooler than your craft, unless your craft is spending your daddy’s money in Bali while managing to angle your subtle bikini body and fresh cut French bangs while pursuing a moderate influencer modeling career. The fact that it measures “creativity” based on another app’s social count in ratio with hotness or celebrity association without even asking for a website or profession is telling that this is basically a “hot or not” instafame app that reflects all the feelings of classism for those wondering on the waitlist. It is an excuse for perpetuating elitism culture and selection without substance.
Constantly freezing, profiles never play, have to click two-three-Times- then never loads.
This apps wants you to add your Facebook then add Instagram. To verify who you are. Which is fine then they want your cell number. Which is also fine. But will not approve unless on the last step you add a current member. Seems to be a fishing app to me. Want all passwords to accounts!
Save your money.
Contact list grab.
So I’ve been on the waitlist for 2 years, but I know 3 non industry friends who got on almost immediately bc they knew someone at Raya? Complete trash.
I have several friends on the app yet still on the waitlist for over a year this is lame
Can’t go back to review info before it submits, confirmation texts don’t get sent. Overall a very buggy app with limited customer service support. I’m sure it’s a cool app, but the front end issues make it unusable
The app selection process is extremely bias and only selects a very obvious aesthetic of brooklynite hipsters. It’s actually ridiculous.
Great concept and design, but the apps basic functionalities need significant work. The app needs to actually do what you expect it to do. Nothing ever loads! 80% of my time on the app is watching the screen load. I’ve been trying to change my song for a month, and all I end up staring at is that awful loading screen. And when, by some miracle, things do load, they get jumbled up. There’s something wrong with the algorithm that populates your “feed”. Once you reject a person, they pop up over and over again days/weeks later. And it isn’t location based. If I’m based in NYC, why is half of my feed people in Sweden. This isn’t a service issue. I have world class WiFi and full bars of LTE phone service, as well as an iPhone X with the latest iOS. These are backend issues that need solving. @Raya Dev Team. Again, the design and concept is great- but the technology needs serious work.
