SimplyCircle helps streamline communications for all types of groups, including classrooms, schools, PTAs, scout groups, sports teams, faith groups, professional communities, clubs, and informal groups of family and friends. Unlike other group communication platforms, SimplyCircle combines the broad reach of an email distribution list with the deep engagement of a private social network.
COMMUNICATE EFFECTIVELY WITH YOUR GROUP. SimplyCircle makes it simple to handle all your group communication in one system. It’s easy to send out updates, events, tasks, and photos to all the members in your private circle. Everyone can respond to content online or from the mobile app, and all new posts are summarized daily. This way, you can engage all your members – and avoid another “reply all” email fiasco.
NEVER FORGET ANOTHER EVENT. It’s easy to create events and tasks in SimplyCircle, and your entire group will get notified. Then, they will receive automated reminders about everything happening that week on Sunday morning, plus one final reminder the day of the event. Group members can also import any SimplyCircle event or task into their personal calendar with one click of a button. It’s never been easier for your group members to stay on top of events and deadlines!
ENABLE ONE-ON-ONE CONVERSATIONS. With SimplyCircle, your members can engage in one-on-one conversations with other group members, without needing to access their private contact information. For group members who don’t know each other well, that’s much easier than looking up an email address in a school directory or a club roster. Group members can message each other privately right from the app, and be instantly notified when they get a new message. If the recipient of their message does not have the SimplyCircle app, he or she will receive an email – so no communications ever get lost.
INTEGRATED VOLUNTEER SIGNUPS. Simple volunteer features are included right in the SimplyCircle platform, so you don’t have to manage your group communications across multiple different services. Group members can sign up to volunteer with one click of a button, right from their phone.
BEST OF ALL, IT’S FREE AND EASY! It takes less than a minute to invite your group members to your free private circle. On the app, you can easily invite people from the address book on your phone. On the web, you have additional invitation options such as entering a list of email addresses or uploading a CSV file.

Good app in theory. I use as an elementary school teacher for parent communication. I am aggravated that the app doesn't notify me when a parent sends a message, as I have missed several important messages because of that. Now that so many of the features that drew me to this program are only available on the pay app, I will likely discontinue use next school year and try to find another free app. The pricing is not realistic for what I have been using it for.
So far I'm liking the app. It's feature rich in terms of what you can do and share. I like how you send invites and the fact I can upload doc files. If there was anything I'd change I'd make the app faster and add the ability to customize the color. Other than that it's great.
Every time I try to post from my phone, I type all my info in and as soon as I hit share it tells me "description can't be blank" even though I typed a whole paragraph. It worked fine up until about three days ago.
I'm testing this with my older Girl scout troop hoping for better communication, they do not seem to check emails as often as apps. So far we like the layout but have noticed that when there are new posts the notifications only go to email not directly to app. Is there a way to get notification of new posts through the phone app?
It has all of the features of the site now on my phone. I really love it.
I'm glad you guys came out with this. It makes it even easier to stay in touch with my kids' circles. Just started using it, but it looks clean and no issues so far.
