Summer - More First Dates 17+
Meet, chat, and date IRL
9 Count, Inc.
- Offers In-App Purchases
Summer is the dating app for people who actually want to go on dates. Instead of chatting endlessly and never meeting up, on Summer you only have 25 messages per match to make a move or move on.
When you get a new match on Summer, the two of you have 25 messages total to see if you hit it off! Remember…conversations on dating apps shouldn’t last forever, so plan a date before it’s too late.
Once you’re out of messages with a match, the chat will lock. We are serious when we say we want you to actually meet in-person. Summer is for dating, not pen pals!
Instead of forcing you to say yes or no to every profile, Summer shows you a bunch of profiles all at once so you can pick who catches your eye.
The people on your Summer explore page are nearby and recently active. No more worrying about matching with profiles that don’t actively use the app.
We believe the first date should happen IRL, not over text. Meet your next first date on Summer!

Ratings and Reviews
Great but superficial
This app is great. They don’t try to scam you by making you pay to see your likes and to message other people, but you do only get to like a few people a day. You also can’t message people unless you match, which may or may not be a good thing depending on your preferences. It’s a great app interface overall. It’s easy to slide between pictures and quickly see what people are about. There are only a few issues I have with this app. One, you can only filter by age and man/woman which is annoying because then you’re talking to people from over 100 miles away which isn’t bad but you can’t filter them out. Two, not a lot of people have anything in their bios with real substance, so you’re quite literally just scrolling through others’ pictures. It makes it hard to get to know them, but I guess that’s what matching and messaging is for.
Way Worse than Swiping
The creators of this app claim that this is more intuitive than the usual swiping that occurs on the majority of dating apps, but I firmly disagree.
After setting up your profile (which is a lot less in depth as say Bumble or Hinge) you’re thrown into a 3 by 4 layout of profile pictures of potential people you can match with. I argue that this is way more overwhelming than being shown one person at a time. Then, to view someone’s profile you must click on their icon to bring up their About Me. Now because this app doesn’t ask many questions about preferences, you’re simply shown their bio, and a list of like, 5-6 preferences that they’ve chosen (e.g, if they smoke, their height). Most people do not give you much to work with, with many opting to say very very little about themselves in their bio. You really don’t learn anything about someone before you “match” with them other than their looks.
From my very brief experience with this app, I’d say it’s highly unintuitive for true dating and getting to know someone, but no, I have not gone through the process of actually matching with someone and trying to talk to them. I simply do not have enough interest in furthering my time on this app, so I can’t speak more on if this is truly a better way to date using an app.
Best Dating App On The App Store
I never write reviews on the App Store for any app, but I just have to for this one. I’ve been on a lot of dating apps but this is the best one in my opinion! I love how you can view everyone’s profiles on there at one time without swiping right and left! It also tells you whether they are online or not which is very convenient in hopes of a fast response! Once you like their profile, you can leave a comment for them to see once they match with you! I have encountered absolutely no fake profiles or bots as well which is a major bonus for me as those can be very annoying for everyone! If you’re looking for local people to date and make connections with, please download this app! If you don’t, you’re literally missing out!
