At a cursory glance the messages were neither original nor engaging. Most were along these lines: The app, my friend tells me, is like those unwanted game requests you receive on Facebook. It keeps trying to build your profile through pop-up- styled quizzes. OkCupid does have a couple of plus points. They also have the option of joining their A-list, which has perks like no ads, advanced searches filters, and the ability to browse invisibly. But such basic services come — unnecessarily — at a price.
Hinge A slightly more discretionary app than Tinder, Hinge connects you to people with whom you have common friends. The options are limited. It also has a time frame within which you have to write to your match or the app automatically unmatches you. Aisle Aisle has an entirely different model. It forces users to pay to connect with someone. I guess the app does that to ensure that only serious candidates get through to each other.
Woo Woo comes across as a more holistic version of Tinder and Hinge. It even lets you record a voice intro that gives a nice human touch. It will ask you to come back to see a new set of matches. The marketing campaigns are well planned. Plus, showing only 10 people every day is irritating. Tinder, Thrill and Woo are positioned as. A user signs up using Facebook and can see likeminded individuals based on Facebook likes.
While Tinder works flawlessly as per the set criteria gender, age, distance , Thrill still has a long way to go. Woo , on the other hand, asks you to complete your profile to get more accurate results. It marked only 20 per cent of my profile as completed after fetching details from Facebook. It asks questions related to demographic profile, taste related to music, sports and fitness, cuisine etc. Woo worked flawlessly and all the integrations were very smooth.
While in Tinder and Thrill you swipe right for showing interest like in Tinder and thrill in Thrill and left for a pass dislike in Tinder and not thrilling in Thrill , Woo works with a swipe downwards for like and swipe upwards for a pass. There are some unique features like Voice Intro and LinkedIn verification. Woo, however, is not free forever. It is free only for the first 30 days.
The maker of this app are pretty aware that this feature is pretty disappointing for several people, however they have a valid point that this is what makes Hinge reliable. So, this one is meant for people who are looking for a relationship and not casual dating. Aisle Aisle is also one of those apps that are meant for serious relationships. It stands out because for you to send an invite to a match, you need to pay.
So, only people who really like the person will make the efforts of actually paying. However the receiver can connect for free. The only problem with this app is creating a profile. While asking your preferences, they go into every small detail and that can be pretty daunting. It is available for both iOS and android. Bloomy Bloomy unlike other dating apps prefers providing security to its users. All your personal information is pretty safe with Bloomy.
This feature is taken care by one of the best security systems and thus you do not have to worry about any personal data leaking out like pictures or your number. Once you register into this app, they ensure that there is a verification process done that is taken care of by the Bloomy staff. It is an easy of discovering matches. If you like somebody you can just directly send messages to the contact. Can it get simpler than this? Kama Another very unique app is the Kama that doe s not restrict its users to just Indians, it spreads out to the entire South-Asian community.
This app ensures that you choose your match based on varied factors not just distance and age. You can also edit your profile based on the kind of lifestyle you have.
