Good concept that needs work


Great idea, but not yet a home run. There’s no way to undo a mistake of disliking a name. You’re looking at so many names at once. Mistakes are bound to happen. Also, if you’re going to mix in made up names, you should allow folks to filter those out. Most of them are alternative spellings or just ridiculous. The various spellings for a name should be on one card. I don’t want to waste time saying no twenty times to the same name just because the letters have been tinkered with. I’m a little embarrassed I sent this to my husband now. It can be hard to find a way for couples to connect on names, so sending a mediocre app as a way of conjuring interest might backfire if your partner feels like they’re wasting their time trudging through card upon card of nonsense.



I was very excited to use this app, but it’s constantly freezing and it will repeat the same 10 names in a row every few that I go through. It repeats Carter, Ava, Olivia, Oliver, etc. Extremely frustrating. I have to restart the app every time. Also, my husband is linked to my profile on the app & most times it’s frozen and won’t show our choices we have in common, same with the names I have chosen already. If there’s another baby names app out there I will try it.

Made up names and repeats


This app is a crappier version of another baby name app where you swipe and can also link up with your partner. 90% of the names sound made up or are “YouNeek” spellings of regular names. It also repeats names you’ve said no too many times, usually within a few swipes! I said no to Olivia and Ava 3 times in less than 5 minutes. Not loving the name suggestions or variety. The app itself works well. No crashing and it saves my like/dislike lists, although it doesn’t seem to base suggestions off of them.
