Bang With Friends Returns To iOS App Store As “Down”

You may or may not already be familiar with the story of “Bang With Friends”. The app, which helps you find viable Facebook friends to hookup with, was pulled by Apple from the App Store just 10 days after its May release.

Well Bang With Friends has returned to the App Store, this time under the new name “Down”. The developers have removed all traces of the word “bang” and instead have made a more innuendo based app.

Previously, you would use the app to select which of your Facebook friends you’d be “Down to bang.” If that Facebook friend happened to also use the app and select you as someone that they would be “Down to bang”, both of you would be notified of the shared interest. Otherwise, the friends you selected would never find out that you were “Down to bang.”

Now, however, the app has changed the wording to simply say “Down.” You can browse through your Facebook friends and select which of them you’re “Down” for, and if they do the same, you’ll both be notified. Hilariously, the app has also added a new “Down to hang” option. If you see a friend of either gender that you’re simply “Down to hang” with, you can now select that option and be notified if that friend also expresses his desire to hang. Oh, Internet.

Here’s the app’s official description:

The anonymous, simple, fun way to find friends who are interested in you.

Join your friends and over 1 Million people already on our network!

Your friends will never know you’re interested unless they are too!

(Completely private & discreet. We’ll connect you to each other once both of you express interest!)


1. Sign in with Facebook so you can see your friends (don’t worry – we NEVER post to your Facebook wall)!

2. Select Your Attractive Friends: We will only show your friends that you’re interested if they are too!

3. Once we know you’re both down, we’ll let you know!

If you want to try out the app for yourself, download it for free here. Currently, the app remains on Android under its old “Bang With Friends” name. It’s unclear whether the developer plans to update it to “Down” as well, or keep the original name.
