Sign-up is easy — you can either choose to enter your details in the old-fashioned way by filling in the form, or you can quickly sign-up with your Facebook account.Once you’re signed up, you’ll want to set a profile picture, a display name, and make it clear whether you’re looking for love, a hookup, or just friends.You can also choose to make your answers public and note how important they are to you.All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.The interface is extremely clunky and the photos are a little small.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. If you don’t reply, they’ll probably just keep on messaging you too.It works on a website, but it’s overkill on an app, and the amount of scrolling required makes it annoying to access. Facebook verification helps block a percentage of bots and catfishers from creating accounts, and without it, Ok Cupid loses a level of reliability.
If you want the best possible experience, then there’s Grindr Unlimited, which has no limit on the number of people you can see, lets you see who’s viewed your profile, and browse in Incognito mode.
If something goes wrong, it’s also easy to report or block accounts — though there are a limited number of blocks for free users, which is a serious turn-off. Free users only get to see 100 profiles in their area and are limited in other parts of the app too.
If you want to lift those limits, then there are two subscriptions you can take out.
It’s easy to message people — just tap the messaging icon on their profile — and there are large, high-quality pictures too, so you have a good idea of who you’re meeting up with.
You can even location share for really easy meet-ups.
