Ok Cupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners.
The interface is extremely clunky and the photos are a little small.
Sadly, you also will only be able to see the five most recent visitors to your profile unless you pay for an upgrade and — worst of all — anyone can message you. Download now from: i Tunes Google Play Coffee Meets Bagel is another dating app that piggybacks on Facebook.
Once you’ve set up your profile and input your preferences, it will send you one “bagel” a day, which is essentially the profile of a potential match.
All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.
To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.
The interface is also relatively user-friendly, with large photos and clean text. Although Coffee Meets Bagel allows for a range of super specific preferences, the bagel it sends you may or may not match your specified preferences and, more often than not, if they do, they will be a significant distance away.
The app can also be glitchy, often resulting in slow update and load times, and sometimes it’s frustrating that it sends you only a single bagel a day.
You then have 24 hours to decide whether you want to “like” or “pass” on your bagel.
If you like your bagel and they have also liked you, you’ll connect, meaning that you’ll be able to message one another in a private chat.
If you and someone have both swiped right on one another, a screen will appear showing that you’ve matched and inviting you to send them a message.
But most of the time, the Tinder experience will consist of flicking through profiles like channels on the television.
You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app.
