Ratings and Reviews
Great idea but too much micro transactions
At first I was pretty skeptical, I mean matches everyday? Get real. But for the first two weeks that’s what it was, matches everyday. One of my problem was my matches weren’t exactly close. So it feels like a waste of a day and you can’t set a distance because that costs. It’s odd that a feature like that would cost, it’s pretty normal to want to see someone close. My next problem comes from the 5 star system, I’d understand if it was girls near me... but mostly all the girls are white European Instagram girls. I don’t see how favoring an attractive girl is going to improve my odds of finding someone? I’m average at best, so it seems odd that every single one is just stunning. My last and final problem was after the first two weeks I would rarely get matches. I’d be lucky if I got matches 3 times a week. This is a great idea one match everyday so you have time to think about it. It’s much more personal but some features should be free. And promises should be kept, not just for 2 weeks.
Good concept, poorly done
Literally the biggest thing that needs to change about this app is really too important to ignore: the primary decision-making factor is a person's picture(s). For recommended matches, you can see a paragraph that the person has written, if they even wrote one, and maybe some small details. But for rating potential matches? That's it. No info, no hobbies, no location, nothing. It makes my constant reaction to the people I'm supposed to rate a giant shrug because I don't have a freaking clue about any person I'm looking at. I just have to decide based on their picture - and that feels arbitrary and awful. Not to mention that even though I've put that I'm bi, I only get sent male matches and I can only rate men. Some women have found me on their own but I can't seem to find them myself. It's super weird. Uh, fix that please. So, I really like the idea they're going for, but as it is I find myself frequently confused and uncertain and frustrated. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Good, but needs work
For starters, I really do like the concept. I also have noticed that some of the matches selected were definitely hand picked for me based on similarity of interests. However, there are a few major problems with this app. First off, you can't set the maximum distance for your matches. This means that on some days your match is straight up wasted. Second, the section where you rate profiles by attractiveness is total garbage. The majority of profiles that you see are stock profiles of very attractive white women. As a result, there's no way that any useful information can come out of this section. Moreover, it shows with my matches, since I have found very few of them to be my type or even the slightest bit attractive. All in all, it's a great concept, but the implementation needs work.
