Pack messaging

Connect instantly

Packs are tailor made group chats that simplify connections with neighbors. We build a network for you. The only thing left to do is to make it your own. Want to start a walking club? Create a pack to find your people.

Packs are just like group chats, but only verified people that live near you can view and access them.

Welcome home

A quiet, dedicated space for neighbors

Social apps have become too noisy and now don't feel like the neighborhoods we live in. You won't find a relentless feed of complaints. We're designing a space for you to feel comfortable again with neighbors. Take your shoes off and come on in.
