Pretty awesome app!

I genuinely really love badoo compared to other dating apps because you are free to express yourself to your true self and true identity. They will not shadow ban you, or take down your profile or take down your photos compared to other dating apps I’ve tried. Some dating apps would delete my profile if you upload a picture they don’t allow and no communication from the support team …of course be compliant with the community guidelines. I meant more as if you wanted to express yourself by uploading a picture of your cool mask due to the worlds pandemic I want to be able to be allowed to upload it and some dating apps would take down my pictures… badoo DOES let me express myself on there. As well You get recognition and, swiping is perfect and easy! If you are there for friends, friends is exactly what you will get or if you’re there for a relationship it’s a AWESOME way to find someone. You don’t necessarily need to purchase anything to get swipes I ABSOLUTELY love that!!! and if you do pay for the premium option it gives you exactly what you pay for. I personally did buy it a few times because you get boosted once a week and I love that! It’s a cute and fun way to get people encouraged to buy premium. 10/10.

This app would be perfect if it collected height and weight as required fields. Lol. Because inquiring minds want to know.

After submitting the above feedback I received sn email from the Badoo development team (see below). I find their argument regarding weight to be, while noble, also to be rather selective. The app collects and presents age, for example, as a required field. They don’t merely confirm that each user is of legal adult age. This is ageism; shouldn’t a 48 year old man be considered just as worthy to date a woman of any legal age as a man half his age? I’m a 48 year old American man and I am often mistaken for 30 by females here in SE Asia where I’m living my early retirement years. Why should I have to reveal my actual age, which might cause a young woman to filter me out of her consideration? There seems some selective prejudice going on here.
Thanks for your feedback 🙌 We believe all of our members are beautiful inside and out. We do not, would never, and are very opposed to the idea of having an algorithm to filter users based on weight. We believe love and connections are better unfiltered and come in all shapes and sizes 💜"

Thank you, we have recorded your feedback. We appreciate you💜



Great app, overall. Definitely a growing user-base. What I’ve stated continually when being promoted for reviews is that “it’s still growing on me— if Badoo turns out NOT to cripple functionality in favor of becoming ‘pay-to-play’ then I’ll consider it ideal.” Unfortunately, I’m being met with very inconsistent in-app messaging. “Swipe 50 times for your perfect match” — then, some arbitrary number of swipes later (as little as 3 to as many as 20), I’m told “That’s all your swipes [BUY] Premium!” Um, no thanks. I consistently rated this app high because they afford communication via advertisements & viewing them. Furthermore, the purchase of credits isn’t terribly expensive. I will not, however, commit to a monthly statement over a sub-par dating app. I simply won’t. If anyone at Badoo cares to listen, here it is:
You’re making the PRECISE mistake every other app/platform makes— you’re banking on the notion that you can “hook” everyone; when you realize you cannot, you simply disable our ability to use your app. It’s unacceptable. I reside in one of the single largest metropolitan areas of the USA. There are some 9,000,000 residents. I see countless “new members” DAILY. YET, here I am— “out of swipes.” And that’s a wrap, I suppose.
Folks, it’s good for precisely 4 weeks— UNLESS you ACTUALLY use it a significant amount. In that case, you’ll likely be shut down even faster. It was nice while it lasted; I had hope. ✌🏼
