Is there a way to turn down the recommended channels in my home feed?
Hi Peter Elbaor! Yes, you can control, which of the recommended channels appear on your Feed.
This can be done by clicking on the arrow symbol on the post, which opens a contextual menu. From there you can choose to hide a specific channel from your feed or navigate to More Feed Options, where you will see the list of all channels you're member of and a list of suggested ones. There you can decide what appears on your Feed.
We are constantly working on improving the user experience - your feedback means a lot to us and helps us enhance Pepo every day!

Wondering if you have considered doing lists or guidebooks on Pepo? Any local expert can create a guidebook. It could augment conversations, and provide an easy way to navigate through a lot of content.

For example, I like how Airbnb is experimenting with guidebooks under the Places tab. Check out the Havana one.
Cool idea, thanks! We've noodled a few things in this direction. We may even look enabling this via outside developers creating apps/widgets for Pepo.

While I'm browsing through a channel, it would be immensely helpful to save the places (restaurants etc) that I found interesting, so that I can easily find them later.
Hey Nishith Shah - thanks for the input! Right now in any channel you can select the "my posts" tab at the top to filter to only the posts you have reacted to or replied to. We will be working on better "saves" and "labels" for saves in the future as well as ability to save to maps. It also may be fairly easy to enable Pepo Members to pin to their Google maps. Will look into that!

Hi Jason & Ignas,
Can we have a hastag feature on posts and search? Since it is a very common way of social searching , I think will help users find content more easily on the platform and get discovered by more users. What do you think?
We are working on some tag features next actually! Some cool stuff planned. We're excited to show everyone soon!

Is it just me or is it difficult to find the description of a group once you're in it?
Hi Kwan Ho Kim! Once inside the channel, you can always click on the top ribbon to see the channel details page where gou can see the description and additional information.

Hello Pepo team, I love the idea and design. One thing I would like to be added is the ability to click the notification of the person that reacted to our photo so that we are forwarded to his/her profile, instead of our photo? Maybe make it a feature where we can click (hyperlink) their name so that we are forwarded to their profile.

Cheers and good luck. ☺
Thanks! We are adding the ability to see who reacted to your messages. That will be in our next app update.

Hi! Congrats on 2.0. Any thoughts on adding reply/comment functionality to posts from groups you haven't joined? The feed is great for discovery, but it would be nice to have the option to leave a comment without necessarily joining the group. Thanks!
Great point Max! We are already working to release that functionality in our next release!

Keep the feedback coming!

With 7000 Pepo channels created to-date and hundreds of thousands of posts, replies, & reactions in those channels, one interesting design challenge we have been working on at Pepo is how to make it easier for people to find the best content within a Pepo channel when the content is normally presented in a messaging-like “timeline” view with the newest content always coming in at the bottom of the channel (like in a WhatsApp chat). Scrolling up through hundreds or thousands of posts can be tedious.

We just updated the Pepo app with a new innovation: Smart Filters on the top of every channel.

Here's my blog post on Medium with more details.

FYI -- Spotlight uploading isn't working for me. I'm updated to 1.1.14. Not sure if it's the same issue.

Would be nice to still see the message I am replying to while writing my reply, and also be prompted that I will lose what I have already typed if I try to go back to the stream without sending the reply.
Thanks Paul Renshaw ! We have this fixed on iOS now and we'll take it up on Android as well!

Hi there,
Did I miss the "edit my reply" button somewhere? Can't seem to be able to correct my spelling mistakes ( I should learn to proofread.. ).
Thanks for the feedback! We need to build that!

The reviews of Pepo keep coming. This time, our beloved Ayushi G from The Foodie Diaries had this to say:
"My experience using Pepo has been a multifaceted one, connecting me with like-minded food and travel explorers in innovative and interactive ways. "

Are you guys seriously willing to scale this app?
Why are you sending me notifications of the channels am not a part of.

Plz answer this.
Hey Rajesh Pabari we occasionally send some notifications about channels you may want to discover. We keep them to a minimum.

Thanks for the feedback! We will review and work on it.

currently the app is not as fast as I would like it to be, secondly the cognitive load for onboarding is way too much - can be much more simpler, thirdly - color palette for app needs to be toned down - right now it's neither minimalist neither - cheerful . fourthly..took me about two minutes to figure out what the app was about and still the proposition is not clear to me ..make it as simple as possible and not simpler.
Hi Ishaan! We are introducing a new registration flow next week, which is going to be more simple and intuitive. We're constantly working on making Pepo user friendly and easy to understand.
Thank you for your feedback!
