About this event

We're taking over the new TextNow office for our April Mobile Growth meetup, and we're talking with a pretty awesome panel about ways you can grow your app. We'll have pizza with all the fixings and cold beverages to wash it down, plus time to chat and socialize before and after the panel discussion.  

The panel will cover best practices to drive users to your app, ways you can improve on retention and engagement, measurement tactics, building feature for growth, and much more. More details - and additional speakers - coming soon!
