 Reviews

API Intergration is bad.

My Circle integration is at an impasse, just a couple months in. Circle support give me implausible excuses for serious DX issues with their API, and no estimates or fixes for acknowledged API errors. To their credit, they have acknowledged that I must be frustrated!

Good Product.

I couldn't be more excited to see Circle here on Product Hunt. I've been using the platform while in beta for the past few months and couldn't be more impressed. I evaluated FB Groups, Slack, Mighty Networks, Tribe, etc. to be a the potential home for my community. I'm soooooo glad I went with Circle. Incredible platform with people who value quality product and a thoughtful UX. Pure gold.
