Ratings and Reviews
Potential, but buggy
Took about 35 minutes to create a profile. Autocorrect was suppressed while filling out the fields, which was somewhat irritating, but livable. However, when I got to the stage of trying to upload an avatar, there is what seems to be an arbitrary 1MB limit on photo size, which means any photo taken with an iPhone camera is too large to use as an avatar, though there’s no way of knowing until your upload fails. I even tried incredibly outdated photos taken on old phones, and it said my 1MB photo exceeded the 1MB limit. Finished profile creation, and was able to upload other photos without worrying about the 1MB limit (hence my comment that it seemed arbitrary). Had to navigate to figure out how to see local profiles, of which I was the only one. Deleted my account. Perhaps I’ll try again at some point.
Where’d my account go!?!?
So I spent the considerable time setting up a complete and honest profile. Suddenly, a few days later (today), I can’t log in and the system tells me that there is no user with my email. If you’re going to delete my account, please give me the dignity of an email telling me that you’re doing it and why.
The app would freeze up periodically, but it was not hard to restart and continue. The user interface is good. The biggest weakness is the very low number of users within 100km of my mid-sized-city location. It gets 4 stars if my account reappears.
Simply put, it’s not finished
I truly tried. The app is far beyond unpolished, it’s simply incomplete.
Tl;dr: Goos choices of gender and relationship identities, but UX is bland and impersonal, profile didn’t save. Not trying again.
Long version: It allows for multiple selection of relationship types (including solo poly and RA) and gender identities. This is great!
The bad is everything else in the user experience. The profile fields are labeled impersonally, such as “Users location” contrasted to right above it, “About me”. “Profile type” means how you identify (Male, Female, Cis M, Cis W, Non-Binary, etc.) Small things at first.
Then there is a three question interview for the app developers. One of the questions is “What is good about poly?” Will only ever have subjective answers in it and yet it tells you you will be judged on your answer. If this were an interview question other users to read, fine. But it explicitly states this is specifically for the app developers to see if you are poly-friendly. I’m being tested?
Due to the other reviews, I did not spend 20 minutes filling out the profile. Instead, I answered the short questions manually and I pasted essays from my other dating app profiles to speed up the process.
The app simply told me the profile was not saved and took me back to the start page. Sigh.
There is no stated character limit on any field. You have one line of viewable editing space to fill in essay questions. It is impersonal, amateur, and incomplete. We should not be subject to a developer’s judgment if we’re worthy to use their app.
The only reason there is a second star is because they allow for any number of gender identities or relationship types to be selected in defining who you are. That part they got right.
