In its first major update since launching, the indoor activity app indoors for women, bogo, is helping women navigate their lives.
“The indoor app bogo activated is now live in the U.S. and in all 50 states and territories,” a company spokesperson said in a statement.
“It is the most extensive and flexible indoor app for women.”
It offers a number of ways to use indoor activities from walking to cooking to yoga.
The app can also be used to create and share a “bogo account” to access more than 50 million outdoor activities, according to a recent article on bogo.org.
For example, if you use a bogo account to join the outdoor version of a yoga class, the app will also allow you to join a yoga studio.
The company also added a “Women in Action” section that shows how women can get active and connect with their peers, including a weekly “bongo time” that is posted in the app.
It also offers a way to “pitch in” on bongo events.
And there’s more, such as the “My Bongo” section, which shows how to join events on social media, make videos, and upload videos to YouTube.
But it’s the online experience that bogo is working on that makes the app truly unique.
“When women come together to share their stories and experiences, bongo gives them a unique way to connect with one another and connect more directly with their community,” the company said in the statement.
The interactive nature of bongo’s app also makes it a better fit for women of all ages.
“For a lot of women, they don’t feel connected to their families,” Ms. Mertz said.
“We know that a lot women aren’t connecting to their communities or community leaders because they’re focused on their jobs, their career, or their work.”
The company has also found a way for bongo to engage more deeply with women who are struggling with mental health and anxiety, which can sometimes be a barrier to participation.
“Women often struggle to find support, particularly in our culture,” Ms, Mertzeit said.
The new app also includes a new feature called “Bongo Belly,” which shows women how to prepare and store food for bogo events, and helps them find the most appropriate food options for the event.
The bongo app also adds more ways to share outdoor experiences, such in the “my bongo” area of the app, which includes tips on how to make video recordings of bogo activities.
The online version of boga.org also has a new “My Events” section for events and offers a guide to how to create videos, share them on social platforms, and more.
But the bongo apps offline offering, which is free for women in the US, has some limitations.
While the app can be used online, the online version is limited to events in the United States.
And bogo can’t connect you to an outdoor event.
“As bogo has grown, there has been some concern that bongo has not yet been integrated with the existing indoor experience,” the bogo spokesperson said.
In addition, the company is looking at how it can expand bongo and its apps offline.
“In the near future, we will work with bogo to make bogo the most comprehensive and flexible, including an interactive app, in the world,” the spokesperson said, adding that the company will also “continue to make changes to the app.”
