I agree with Chrrisy@Elevation’s review. A lot of people on this app are confused between Catholicism and Christianity. Like there’s a huge difference and you can’t categorize a faith based relationship with God with someone who believes in a priest. You can clearly tell in their bio who is really christian and who’s not, but it’s so much work to have to filter through. It honestly just makes me question the people who made this app like do they even know the difference?? Also the distance thing like why is the radius so far?????

No reasonable filters?

It’s really odd how you can’t really filter people by religion or radius. I don’t have the elite version, so it’s hard to tell if people are legit swiping right on me when I got like 300+ likes in the first couple of days. Without the elite version and without filters, you could be swiping all day which can be a big waste of time and a poor user experience. I appreciate what the app currently is as it has great potential, but it’s definitely a struggle for me when I would like to meet someone from a specific religion.

This app went from annoying to extremely annoying after the update. The amount of unnecessary and unwanted prompts is unbelievable. I can’t imagine what the notifications are like I turned that off a while ago. The amount of compromise from the creators of the app makes me question if they have any Christian values themselves at all. Netflix and chill stickers on a Christian dating app? Really? Also, I understand the desire to make money off of an app you’ve created there’s nothing wrong with that, but greed has definitely taken over. They continue to remove more and more free features and lock them behind a paywall. I wouldn’t be surprised if they tweaked the algorithm to make sure you don’t see people that have liked you unless you pay. It’s a shame because this app definitely has potential. What can I expect though, they always end up being the same. The love of money is the root of all evil and this app is proving that to be true.
