WHAT MAKES ROUND-ABOUTS DIFFERENT?
A lot of apps are OK at letting you know where your contacts are - which is fine for coincidental meetings IF you happen to be in the same place AT the same time AND you both realise it AND you have a way to get in touch.
At round-abouts, we are focused on the future - letting you know in advance if your plans overlap with those of your contacts. It then gives you the option to get in touch... meaning meetings need no longer be left to chance.
By only ever looking for Overlaps based on YOUR schedule with contacts from the group(s) YOU select, Every notification is guaranteed to be focused and relevant.
And round-abouts is discreet. Unlike other scheduling or meet-up apps, there's no calendar syncing or open broadcasting of your plans. YOU decide when to share your details and YOU choose whether to connect with your contacts... or not!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
round-abouts is free; there is no reason not to get downloading!

CAN I CATEGORISE MY CONTACTS?
Yes, absolutely! We understand that not all of your round-abouts are going to be relevant to all of your contacts so we make it easy to choose who you would like to look for Overlaps with.
Categorise your contacts into 4 groups: Friends, Family, Professional and VIP - with more user defined groups coming soon.
IF MY PLANS CHANGE? CAN I
EDIT MY LOGGED
Of course - just swipe left over the relevant round-abouts event when viewing it in the app and you can edit any of the details.
WHAT IS AN OVERLAP?
You will receive an Overlap notification when your plans overlap with those of your chosen contacts, based on the relationships you have set.
Why don't I get an overlap
Reasons why you might not receive an Overlap notification:
- None of your contacts have logged a round-about
- The person you expected to Overlap with is not on round-abouts. Invite them to join!
- There is no Overlap between the dates that you and your contact(s) logged
- Either you or your contact may have selected a location radius that is too small - meaning that the other person falls outside the search area
- Your contact is not assigned to any of the groups that you selected when logging your round-abouts
If you still aren't receiving Overlaps and think you should be, please do get in touch. We'll be happy to check it out for you: firstname.lastname@example.org
home-location is your default location when you don't have any round-abouts logged.
Having a home-location ensures you'll always receive an Overlap notification if any of your contacts log a round-abouts near your home. BUT the discreet nature of round-abouts means your contacts will never be informed of this Overlap unless YOU choose to Connect and let them know!
