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)_/¯
VIP is a total scam!
The app promises to give you 4 potential matches per day if you subscribe to VIP. However, after paying for VIP they continue to only give one match saying that you need to broaden your distance requirements. I already have mine set to the maximum (64 miles from downtown Chicago). What's worse is the app offers me the opportunity to pay more money to purchase additional matches. If I choose this option, it shows me dozens of profiles which meet my match criteria and are very close by, but it requires me to pay crowns (which cost money) if I want the opportunity to match them. That's ridiculous! I already paid for 4 matches per day. Apparently they have profiles within my search criteria that they could match me with, but they choose not to do so, hoping I will pay the additional fee. Very shady! When I requested a refund, they said I had to get it from Apple directly and sent me a link to Apple. When I followed the link and requested the refund through Apple, Apple said I needed to contact the developer directly. It's a total SCAM!!
