This garbage app won't let you just enter your location like a regular dating app. You can't just tell it where you live. No, that would be too simple. Instead, you have to (a) enter your location (b) let the app look up your location, and then (c) pick your location out of a list of search results. The problem? Step B doesn't work! The (utterly unnecessary) location-lookup function never returns any results. It doesn't matter what you put in; county, city, town, postcode, whatever. It never picks anything up.

In practise, this renders the entire app functionally useless. Unsurprisingly, searching for matches within ten miles of <location to be determined> is only marginally more useful than picking names at random out of a phone book. My "matches" span the length and breadth of the country, all because this poxy app has a completely unnecessary (and really, I can't stress this enough, it is 100% not needed) location-lookup function that doesn't work.

If they just let you enter your town and/or postcode like any other dating app it would probably be fine. Until they either remove or repair (preferably remove) this weird location-lookup function, the app is a useless, tedious, irritating waste of time. Literally any other dating app would be better.

Too many glitches and too slow to fix


The search function doesn’t work so you search within a radius of say 30 miles and it produces a list of people from all over the country - useless. Also the subscription function is now defunct - at one point I struggled to stop ongoing payments; now I’ve cancelled my subscription with iTunes (and I think that’s worked as payments appear to have stopped) but the app is treating me as if still subscribed (I shouldn’t moan about this but it means it’s not working properly). The other big issue is scrolling through your searches on your phone makes it near impossible not to accidentally click on profiles - that’s annoying. It’s not a great app.

Interesting options but can’t select last one on list


Just spent an interesting half hour working through the profile options: values, interests, activities etc but frustrated that you can’t select the item at bottom of list because it’s hidden under the menu. Should be a simple fix ...
