Could use some improvements

1. When I am typing a message to another user, the box to type the message in is really tiny with a tiny font. Once you type more than two small lines of text, you can’t see the previous lines of text. Makes editing messages very difficult. The workaround is to type out your message in a different app, then cut and paste it into Recon. This shouldn’t be necessary and would not be a tough fix for Recon. However, the problem has persisted for many years.

2. If you’re looking at other guys’ profiles and you have them sorted by distance from you, you can’t filter the results. If you filter the results, you can only search for other users across an entire state or even a country, and you can’t sort the results by how close other guys are to you. Seems like it should be relatively easy to combine these two features and make searching easier.

This app is eh

I enjoy the purpose of the app, but I honestly dislike that you have to pay to look at other profiles and that there is a daily limit if you don’t pay for the subscription. We should be able to at least view the people within a certain radius around us for free without getting the “sorry you’ve reached your daily limit of profile views” type of bs. The app is a little difficult to navigate and I’m not quite sure if the purpose of the “friends” tab nobody adds you as a friend on there at least not from my experience. I think this app is in a good direction for us kinksters but it’s poorly thought out for people who can’t pay up for a subscription, at least with Scruff, Grindr, etc we don’t have to pay to simply view nearby profiles. I think Recon needs to stop being greedy.

For mlm trying to find a good kink meetup, this app is really good! It lets you sort by age, distance, and interest without having to get the premium version, which is really nice for an app like this!
There are a few tweaks I would like to see, for instance, if your kink isn’t one listed as a selectable “interest,” then your only option for finding them is to get lucky, or search by name & hope they have it there. Tickling, for instance, is one I would like to see added. Also, once you have searched by name, the only order you can view them in is alphabetical; it would just be really nice to be able to sort by distance as well, or to filter out by age, etc.
For its usage, however, I find it 10x better than any other app for this specific job, A+!
