Ratings and Reviews
If you’re looking for a substitute like wizz, this is probably the closest you can get format wise. The reason i’m giving three stars is 1. you can’t see who ads you 2. you can only swipe left on a certain amount of profiles before you have to wait to continue 3. you cannot specify seeing profiles in a certain location (close to you; you get them from all over the country). I would suggest strongly that you update the app and allows us to see similar profiles in the same state as ourselves. (This will probably lead to you getting many more downloads and more people on the app). 4. You cannot add videos on your profile only photos 5. It is a bit slow here and there
All in all there is so much potential for this to grow on the scale of yubo or wizz, but you need to be very careful in doing so. I would say update fix the bugs, allow people to see people close to them/in the same state, make sure people verify their age, and take reports for any sexual explanation or fraud seriously otherwise it’ll be taken off like wizz did. And i’m serious if you do certain stuff you will see your app grow and become popular. Wizz had a few million downloads they just were money hungry and took shortcuts which caused it to be banned.

NOT AS BAD AS EVERYONE SAYS.
i don’t write reviews but i was hesitant to download this version than the old one because of the reviews. i’ve had the old one and deleted it cus i didn’t like it but wanted to retry it, and saw soda was the new app i gave soda a try anyways despite all the complaints and honestly i like it better than the old app. way more people to add than the old app and i don’t see why people are complaining that you can’t see who swiped on you when it’s just the people YOU skipped. if you matched with them and both swiped on each other then you wouldn’t have to pay to see they added you. common sense a lot of people seem to miss leading miss information you can add whoever you want compared to the old app
Soda is definitely interesting than other apps but over time is had a down fall. Having to pay to see who adds is not ok. It makes soda seem money hungry and then there’s no point to even download the app if you can’t even make friends on it. And there is so many adds that should only seen by 18+ because most of them aren’t age appropriate, and with all the things you have to pay for there’s not much todo on the app which isn’t fun. From having to pay for more swipes and having to pay to see who wants to be your friend is a lot and it feels like we don’t have a choice but to delete the app. Wink used to be fun, being able to see who friended you and even if I had to watch a video to see who it was but making up pay is ideal. If I have to pay for an app to make friends, I’d expect there to be more fun and interesting things todo or get rid of us having to pay for everything. For the fact that soda was advertised as a new form and would be nothing like wink, nothing changed, everything is the same. This app is just a money grab and it’s not fun at all.
