    This is a poorly executed app that does nothing to separate itself from the pack. Oct 28, 2021

    By Daquan Semple
    Terminated and banned with no explanation besides I violated community guidelines. My bio consist of a few words about myself and 1 picture of myself. Customer service is so poor, I pictured all the black characters in hollywoods movies of them depicting the black man/woman who sits at the desk doing absolutely nothing but being on her phone and giving attitude when asked to do work.

    Scam don’t waste your time Oct 8, 2021

    By Ken odem
    I joined which is free and to see profiles you had to pay 13.00 and then to communicate they try to charge your card another 27.00 . It’s not worth stealing money from your card .

    The addition of what people are looking for (fwb/marriage/etc) is very helpful. However, the app would be 10x better if you could filter your searches to only show people who are looking for specific types of relationships like you can on Bumble and Pof. As is, even if someone is looking for the same thing as you, you have to scroll through their profile just to find out
  • I met my life partner on this app Dec 30, 2020

    By kvsandy
    What more can I say, I was able to have interesting conversations with individuals I would likely never have encountered irl. I met the love of my life and ultimately deleted the app. Feedback I got from men though, was that apparently they’ve been having a tough time with discerning if a person was on there to meet people or boost their various online profiles. (You know which kind I’m talking about). My profile was sort of cryptic, to be fair. On occasion this prompted men to aggressively try to attain my socials. I think asking users to answer a few basic compatibility questions in their profile might offset this. The app also regularly reminded me that I had downloaded it which encouraged me to use it and respond to messages and new matches more often. I enjoyed the cute and sometimes cheesy reminders about how I was breaking hearts and to not keep my matches waiting. I don’t have any complaints really, because I met someone that I love deeply so everything feels all rosy now. I am a conventionally attractive, well read, socially conscious, 30 something - so I’ve never had trouble meeting people in real life, I merely wanted to fish from a lake or faster moving river as opposed to a small pond.

    I'm starting to not like this app bc it glitches and freezes up so much! I'm swiping right on people I don't want and left on the ones I do and its been doing this for as long as I've had it. I even re-download it to see if that solves the problem but it didn't. Ya'll need to do something cause I'm not the only one who says the same thing, its in a few bios I've come across about how the app is trash
  • Great app but... Feb 28, 2020

    By Reviews (not) from the 6
    I initially enjoyed the app but over time I began to see issues with it that made me delete the app.. Issues: 1. Fake profiles. There were either fake profiles with the usual scam bios. 2. Too many women on there seemed to be trying to market their modeling career for attention on Instagram than actually date. I even ran into a girl that was trying to sell her book about dating and not actually there to date. These types ruin the dating pool. 3. There needs to be a feature for those strictly interested in heterosexual relationships not to see anything other than the opposite sex. I don’t wanna be offensive so I’ll leave it at that. 4. Not sure if there is a fix for this but sometimes it would make you swipe left or right with a simple touch of the screen. Might be a glitch. 5. There should be a time limit of sorts for when someone can reply before they’re unmatched. The women I’ve dated often complained their inboxes are overwhelming and they miss messages so it’s hard to get to some. It’s also annoying for someone to swipe right on you and you never hear from them. 6. I would love it if you guys added a “Verify your account” feature with a blue check mark or something. I don’t want to waste my time on people who aren’t serious, will waste your time or are fake. Good stuff! 1. Valentine’s Day concept was perfect. 2. I respect and appreciate this being one of the few apps with mostly US on there. 🙂

    I really like this app, although my Elite time has run out today. The Elite button function is not working anymore, so I un-Installed the app and re-Installed the app and now the app is no longer working, keeps crashing and the only option it shows is to close the app. I hope this can be fixed soon, as this app is a great source to meet new people!

    As you the title says I’m only 19 , summer after freshman year in college my best friend and I got into this app for fun . Just to see who was on there locally , see who we could pull and just to talk to strangers out of boredom. Hers didn’t go so well because of a false report but me ? Let me tell you lol ! Hundreds of matches came flying in ! so many handsome people my age , people that weren’t even my age but it was ok because compliments were given from all lol . Out of so many of them , I only texted back 1. He immediately gave me his # and from there I still did him like others and did not text back . He blew me up and I had no choice but to entertain him. He was literally 6 minutes away and one night he just pulled up . Hate to say it but we chilled , smoked and next thing you know ! Boom ! Every day after that, we hung out . Went on dates , met my family and friends. Started dating and months later I’m 5 weeks pregnant . Yup PREGNANT!! we are still in love and together but I can say all thanks to BLK. Sometimes I blame BLK but I honestly love that I downloaded this app lol !

    Hey so far liking the app but could be better. Allow people’s likes’ count to go down when they found a match hitting “yeah” or “nah”. Also I’ve found a few minor things that could add to the layout and navigation of the site. For instance being able to undo an accident swipe (left or right). Changing the area of the buttons. Had a few mistakenly “Kinged” lol. Another thing being able to weigh in more than a 150 bio. Also having the ability to like photos and statements, not only profiles. It’s wise allowing people to be able to update their name or DOB etc. Many members have stated the age is wrong in the Bio because they’re unable to change it. Liking the app so far. Oh also having an option to choose the distance is very necessary. Not all members want to connect wit someone over 100+ miles. I personally don’t care but having the option OF RANGE improves continued use. Majority of the results are 200 miles! Another thing that would be great, when you find a match the count should go down. Ready to give 5 stars with a few changes.

    Its great, but the scrolling swipe up has issues, freezes up. Plus what's with the "likes" for me seem like a scam to a costly upgrade. I'll be happy to donate should results happen, even if it's just conversation. Today's my first day...it's more satisfying than Bumble. Bumble is a fumble sight. Women looking for one percenters

    Takes time too get the hang of proper usages ...and the parameters you set sometimes spontaneously change without you knowing....it would beva definitely plus if a person can comment on the pictures that are on people's profile.....but then you would need to provide a moderator to ensure it's not being abused !
  • Not what it’s cut out to be Sep 22, 2020

    By Prefence Individual
    I was on this app and subscribed to be an Elite member. It has some good perks but when it comes to the distance there is an issue where you cannot select a distance preference. They have one out there. But isn’t working. Which isn’t helpful and it makes it not enjoyable when you know you don’t want to be chatting with someone that is more then 800 miles. They said that feature will be fixed sometime this year. But nothing concrete. So I mention I should get a refund fo that reason. No response on that matter. But responded less then five minutes concerning the distance feature. The app developer responded to my first initial complaint. They responded that it starts off with the members closer to you and goes up to 1200 miles. Which is true! However with that being said. You still can’t set your distance nor can you go back to an area you would like to be. Which makes the app not excited when you run out of choices for that day, which are now set. The app isn’t very useful for personal preference. Which should be available as I have seen and used on other sites.

    I paid for a "premium" subscription this morning and I've already canceled it upon writing this. Paying for a premium subscription definitely isn't worth it. What exactly are the 'benefits' to the subscription? Ok, so I'm able to "rewind" every once in a while? I still have to pay an additional $15 'just' to see who likes Me. Shouldn't that be included in the "premium"? Without proper justification, the only sense it makes is that it's a money grab.
  • TERRIBLE APP. Jan 23, 2021

    By naynae1994
    I’ve had this app for a few years now with no issues, and all of a sudden the app decides to disable my account. So I email customer service and there are supposed to get back to you with in 48 hours ( which is a lie I waited almost a week for a response!) they first responded that they would take this to the higher ups and then a few days later one responded that it was a technical error and app should be fixed now, the next rep responded that I violated their terms and was removed because of this. I then proceeded to ask what terms I violated and they responded that they couldn’t tell me due to privacy reasons ( so you cant tell me about my own account great). Horrible customer service I called in and a rep with a really heavy accent said something about having my Snapchat info on the bio and deleting my account to make a new one. ( doing that didn’t help I’m blocked so every account I make keeps being disabled ) their reps are incompetent that rep obviously didn’t know what a hold button was kept me on hold with no music. And kept giving me the run around. Their follow up is horrible and their communication between reps is as well how does one rep tell me technical issues and the other says violation get if together people. If I could give them 0 stars I would! My sc info was in my bio for years now why didn’t you flag a warning and remove the info it’s not that serious. The way this app handles people is ridiculous. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP PEOPLE!

    This app has been constantly crashing as soon as I open it for the past month, ive been uninstalling reinstalling the app. I have a paid membership and this is unacceptable. There is no web based version of this application which sucks. This is a far cry from anything useful. You need to address these issues a fast as possible.
  • Mediocre is the Word of the Day May 9, 2020

    By Taria95
    This app is mediocre at best. While the layout of the app is okay, there are some things that would really improve it. For example, one small thing is having the text wrap around when someone writes their education and occupation in, so you can see the full text they’ve written. Another small thing is making the “About Me” section you can write in the same as the one that gets presented to potential matches. The layout of the words isn’t consistent when switching between editing the profile and simply viewing the profile. It’d also be nice to add the feature of the “enter button” or ability to skip a line when writing an “about me”. Within the settings, there needs to be a way to turn off all notifications besides messages. Lastly, you should have the option to set your location to one place. Not everyone is staying where they are in the current moment and sometimes want to meet someone close to where they live instead of where they currently are. A person’s city should be shown, not just the miles because you don’t know which direction the person might live in. If it’s a matter of privacy, maybe hide the person’s name until after they match, or have each person’s distance in relation to major cities instead. As a bonus, you could also consider asking prompt questions.

    By Boost n Muscle
    Update: 2021 The app seems to be heavily geared towards manipulating men. The app often asks you to upgrade to premium, just to realize you can't see your matches, unless you upgrade a second time to V.I.P. The awaiting matches has risen from 0 to well over 100. I've set my profile distance to max, and these matches still never show up in my deck. The number just continues to go up, while I'm only matching with random people who seems to be swiping at the same time as me. This is predatory
  • It could use some improvements Nov 29, 2021

    By JessaBx
    I want to start off with my absolutely love the fact that this app exists. I recently moved to a majority white area and dating hasn’t been the easiest for me. This app is nice but compared to the other dating apps, it’s a little lackluster. Other dating apps give you the choice to be specific with what you’re looking for, but this app doesn’t. The people on this app aren’t really engaged in it, majority of the people do not put anything in their bios. Most of them don’t even bother to fill out all of the personal, appearance, and habits tabs. I think this app should have verification because I’ve seen way too many people on the app not use their own photos. If you don’t pay for elite on the app, you will most likely not have a fun experience. I had previously use this app and at the time I paid for elite membership, and I absolutely loved my experience on the app. Then I re-downloaded it and now I have the standard version and I’ve been on here for almost 2 weeks and I’ve only matched with like 6 people but it says I have +99 likes. They don’t really put the people who have liked you in your swipes. I love the fact that this app exists but I’m growing frustrated with it more and more because why do I have to pay to have a nice experience on your app???

  • Terrible customer service and account terminated with no explanation. Jan 9, 2021

    By C0nfused?????????
    My account was terminated 3weeks after me joining. I did not do anything inappropriate nor did I violate any terms or conditions. I reached out to customer service for an explanation of the alleged accusations and their response was they can’t tell me anything about my account due to privacy reasons which is absurd and makes no sense, not feasible at all. Also took about a month to get a response or email back. I requested a supervisor I did not get one and my dilemma is still unresolved. I know for a fact I didn’t do anything out of line but if u are terminating a account you owe the user an explanation and reason of action. Terrible customer service. Can’t even recommend this site. I can recommend POF Update Developer responded and told me to email them at appreviewsblk and acted like they wanted to help so I emailed the A MONTH AGO with screenshots from blk terrible customer service and responses AND THE DEVELOPER DIDNT EVEN REPLY OR HELP. Not one email from them. Their reply to my review to help was a front. My account was deleted for absolutely no reason possibly a glitch idk and blk won’t tell me why my account was deleted or not accessible. (tinder bumble pof and hinge is better than this crap. )

    What more can I say, I was able to have interesting conversations with individuals I would likely never have encountered irl. I met the love of my life and ultimately deleted the app. Feedback I got from men though, was that apparently they’ve been having a tough time with discerning if a person was on there to meet people or boost their various online profiles.

I think asking users to answer a few basic compatibility questions in their profile might offset this. The app also regularly reminded me that I had downloaded it which encouraged me to use it and respond to messages and new matches more often.

  • Where’s the support team? Dec 1, 2020

    By lordbris
    Recently I made an account cuz I thought the app seemed pretty cool and off rip it started lagging very badly and loading really slow I had to make the account like 4 times then when I finally got to make it they messed up my age so it was up a yea and I see that’s a common mistake because there was a lot of people saying their actual age in their bios so I see they had this little super like package and I bought that it was only like 2 dollars and some change. But literally moment later my account gets disabled. I received no email back from the support team or any explanation to why my account has been disabled and that was two days ago and I’ve still haven’t heard any type of response or reason to why my account was disabled. And I’ve asked to have my account in multiple emails and still haven’t gotten a response so it’s like just give me my money back at this point.
  • Give it a try! Nov 26, 2019

    By BOiSKe
    I don’t usually write reviews but I wanted to share my experience with the app! I joined BLK sometime the beginning of this year after being recommended through a friend that met her GF through BLK. And believe me when I say I couldn’t have been any happier to have joined. I typically would set up 3-4 dates a week if I was consistent on actually signing into the app and answering my chats. No weird bug issues for me and I never ran into any “weirdos” when actually meeting up. If I hadn’t given this app a try I wouldn’t have met the love of my life from here. We tell EVERYONE about BLK and our story of how we met through the service. It’s so hard dating in the LGBTQ Community and I honestly wasn’t expecting to connect with anyone through the platform but I BLK introduced me to the person I’m going to spend the rest of my life with Thank you BLK! ❤️

I personally don’t care but having the option OF RANGE improves continued use. Majority of the results are 200 miles! Another thing that would be great, when you find a match the count should go down. Ready to give 5 stars with a few changes.

    The addition of what people are looking for (fwb/marriage/etc) is very helpful. However, the app would be 10x better if you could filter your searches to only show people who are looking for specific types of relationships like you can on Bumble and Pof. As is, even if someone is looking for the same thing as you, you have to scroll through their profile just to find out

    I'm starting to not like this app bc it glitches and freezes up so much! I'm swiping right on people I don't want and left on the ones I do and its been doing this for as long as I've had it. I even re-download it to see if that solves the problem but it didn't. Ya'll need to do something cause I'm not the only one who says the same thing, its in a few bios I've come across about how the app is trash

    I really like this app, although my Elite time has run out today. The Elite button function is not working anymore, so I un-Installed the app and re-Installed the app and now the app is no longer working, keeps crashing and the only option it shows is to close the app. I hope this can be fixed soon, as this app is a great source to meet new people!

    Its great, but the scrolling swipe up has issues, freezes up. Plus what's with the "likes" for me seem like a scam to a costly upgrade. I'll be happy to donate should results happen, even if it's just conversation. Today's my first day...it's more satisfying than Bumble. Bumble is a fumble sight. Women looking for one percenters

    Takes time too get the hang of proper usages ...and the parameters you set sometimes spontaneously change without you knowing....it would beva definitely plus if a person can comment on the pictures that are on people's profile.....but then you would need to provide a moderator to ensure it's not being abused !
  • Not what it’s cut out to be Sep 22, 2020

    By Prefence Individual
    I was on this app and subscribed to be an Elite member. It has some good perks but when it comes to the distance there is an issue where you cannot select a distance preference. They have one out there. But isn’t working. Which isn’t helpful and it makes it not enjoyable when you know you don’t want to be chatting with someone that is more then 800 miles. They said that feature will be fixed sometime this year. But nothing concrete. So I mention I should get a refund fo that reason. No response on that matter. But responded less then five minutes concerning the distance feature. The app developer responded to my first initial complaint. They responded that it starts off with the members closer to you and goes up to 1200 miles. Which is true! However with that being said. You still can’t set your distance nor can you go back to an area you would like to be. Which makes the app not excited when you run out of choices for that day, which are now set. The app isn’t very useful for personal preference. Which should be available as I have seen and used on other sites.
  • Add “casual dating” option; Good in theory Oct 10, 2021

    By Mreeves336
    Add a casual dating or just dating option in addition to exclusive dating. Exclusive dating and in a relationship are interchangeable to most people. Dating isn’t exclusive. But I like the new options. I really like the app. I like the people on it and I feel like the amount of swipes is appropriate. But the matching system needs some work. The biggest issue is that I will match with people that appear to be close by and all the sudden they are 400 or 1500 Miles away. I have to unmatched with a good percentage of the people that I match with simply because they are in another state. My maximum radius is only like 30 miles. Looking through the other reviews, there are lots of people who are also having issues with location matching so I don’t know if this is by design but this is something that definitely needs to be addressed. I would rather have a few matches in my city than a bunch of useless matches because then it makes your app appeared to be useless. Bad business strategy.I live in a major city with a few million people in it so it can’t be lack of options.
  • It’s Ok but Could Def Be Better Dec 10, 2020

    By Dark Romance
    I like the app dynamic I do there are some Kinks tho, I wonder could u guys come up with like a check mark to verify authenticity of it being the person in the pictures like on Badoo. Second bro or sis whoever is behind this brilliant apps creation I’ve been waiting for this as a dating black man searching for his own people having said that there is a lot of white people and Hispanic ppl on there. I mean it doesn’t even ask u ur race cuz it assumes everyone on there is black but listen THEY ARENT. Profiles is like “I’m not black but I love black men” I’m like “yea, WE KNOW”, I suppose u can’t do anything about that but is there a way like or can we be premium members and have a search for “strictly black” option that would help a lot? It kinda kills the vibe for the whole dynamic of the app for it to be geared to Blacks looking for blacks and it a lot more than blacks on there. Finally the distance it says u can filter ur distance and when u do in my case 20 miles it’ll still show me ppl 40miles away, can we work on this please? Love the app tho

    I paid for a "premium" subscription this morning and I've already canceled it upon writing this. Paying for a premium subscription definitely isn't worth it. What exactly are the 'benefits' to the subscription? Ok, so I'm able to "rewind" every once in a while? I still have to pay an additional $15 'just' to see who likes Me. Shouldn't that be included in the "premium"? Without proper justification, the only sense it makes is that it's a money grab.
  • Mediocre is the Word of the Day May 9, 2020

    By Taria95
    This app is mediocre at best. While the layout of the app is okay, there are some things that would really improve it. For example, one small thing is having the text wrap around when someone writes their education and occupation in, so you can see the full text they’ve written. Another small thing is making the “About Me” section you can write in the same as the one that gets presented to potential matches. The layout of the words isn’t consistent when switching between editing the profile and simply viewing the profile. It’d also be nice to add the feature of the “enter button” or ability to skip a line when writing an “about me”. Within the settings, there needs to be a way to turn off all notifications besides messages. Lastly, you should have the option to set your location to one place. Not everyone is staying where they are in the current moment and sometimes want to meet someone close to where they live instead of where they currently are. A person’s city should be shown, not just the miles because you don’t know which direction the person might live in. If it’s a matter of privacy, maybe hide the person’s name until after they match, or have each person’s distance in relation to major cities instead. As a bonus, you could also consider asking prompt questions.
  • It could use some improvements Nov 29, 2021

    By JessaBx
    I want to start off with my absolutely love the fact that this app exists. I recently moved to a majority white area and dating hasn’t been the easiest for me. This app is nice but compared to the other dating apps, it’s a little lackluster. Other dating apps give you the choice to be specific with what you’re looking for, but this app doesn’t. The people on this app aren’t really engaged in it, majority of the people do not put anything in their bios. Most of them don’t even bother to fill out all of the personal, appearance, and habits tabs. I think this app should have verification because I’ve seen way too many people on the app not use their own photos. If you don’t pay for elite on the app, you will most likely not have a fun experience. I had previously use this app and at the time I paid for elite membership, and I absolutely loved my experience on the app. Then I re-downloaded it and now I have the standard version and I’ve been on here for almost 2 weeks and I’ve only matched with like 6 people but it says I have +99 likes. They don’t really put the people who have liked you in your swipes. I love the fact that this app exists but I’m growing frustrated with it more and more because why do I have to pay to have a nice experience on your app???
  • Would Not Recommend Oct 10, 2020

    By 3421pnES
    Let me first start by saying , I’ve never paid for a dating app subscription. I joined BLK because I thought it would be different, so I chose to bite the billet and pay $20 for a ONE MONTH subscription. Within 24 hours I was regretful. The only benefits you get with a paid subscription is the ability to see who “liked” your profile. That’s it. 99% of the likes I got were all people with free accounts so now I feel really dumb. It’s really the same people you can find on tinder , POF, or hinge. There’s nothing special about this app. Nothing sets it apart from the rest besides the name. There are a handful of non black members on the app. There’s a lot of couples on the app looking for threesomes. A lot of men with no substance. I can say within 14hrs I did have over 400 likes on my profile but the selection of men is minimal. Most don’t complete their profiles, or have old pictures. I set my age limit to 29-35 and I still get 21 years olds in my mix. There’s no customization for the profiles to make them interesting either. The whole app is a flop, and I’m honestly just mad I can’t get a refund. Would not recommend, and if you do join , stick with the free version.

    By James Rogers
    So obviously, the premium no longer allows you to see who liked you. So I bought the premium for 14.99 only to see its asking for an extra 24.99 just to see 6 ppl which half maybe spam or not even respond. No thank you. If it isn't broken don't fix it. This change can drive alot of your users away for the app.
  • Shutdown my account for unknown reasons Dec 21, 2019

    By Quicy McCall
    Signed up and seen the app looked nice even signed up for the 14 day trial which I paid for and After 4 days my account was closed and couldn’t use the app. I didn’t message anyone. ,Didn’t report anyone page or anything for that matter. Now I did take my photo down within those 4 days. Just wanted to browse through the app for minute. Reached out to customer service and they got back to me after 2-3 days. But the representative through the email couldn’t tell me why it was closed or why I couldn’t log in. And The money which I paid for the 14 day trial wasn’t refunded. So I can’t use the app and my hard earned money was never refunded. Now the app has a lot of potential but just the fact that they can shut your account down without any warning or give any reason why ....is a quick pass. What would have happened if I signed up for 6 months ....and my account was shut down. I would have been out of $100 dollars or whatever it is for 6 months. If u got money to burn or like Russian roulette or wanna roll the dice ...go right ahead. Make it quick ...I only lasted about 4 days👌🏾

  • Nov 22, 2021

    By Mrs Moore
    The reason why 2 stars is because of nice looking men. If you going to use the app, ONLY GET THE ELITE because that's the only way you will enjoy the app. The 1 month and 3 months will be useless. BLK please make sure that you make sure the people are clear what each package comes with. Thanks for allowing me to use the app, but I will be deleting my profile today's.
  • Ok...at best. Your preferences don't matter. Jan 31, 2021

    By ChiTownReviews
    I was attracted to this app because of its focus on Black singles - great! I set up my account which was easy. I set my preferences, which as also easy, although I do wish there were more options. I quickly gained several match requests (easily 100+ daily), but they were all SCRUBS. I prefer a man who is educated, has gainful employment and can hold a conversation (all attributes I have). Easily 98 of the 100 matches I had on any day I denied. I set my preferences to a certain age range and still received match requests from people far older and younger than my range - including a former student, which is what led me to cancel my subscription. Had my metrics been honored, this would not have happened. The app doesn't require you to share much about yourself, so it's hard to set preferences to see/be seen by who you want. I'm swiping through the end of the month to get what I paid for, but will be deactivating after. This app is NOT for educated folk looking for other educated folk nor is it one that will let you look for and find what you probably downloaded or for.

    This is a poorly executed app that does nothing to separate itself from the pack. Oct 28, 2021

    By Daquan Semple
    Terminated and banned with no explanation besides I violated community guidelines. My bio consist of a few words about myself and 1 picture of myself. Customer service is so poor, I pictured all the black characters in hollywoods movies of them depicting the black man/woman who sits at the desk doing absolutely nothing but being on her phone and giving attitude when asked to do work.

    Scam don’t waste your time Oct 8, 2021

  • TERRIBLE APP. Jan 23, 2021

    By naynae1994
    I’ve had this app for a few years now with no issues, and all of a sudden the app decides to disable my account. So I email customer service and there are supposed to get back to you with in 48 hours ( which is a lie I waited almost a week for a response!) they first responded that they would take this to the higher ups and then a few days later one responded that it was a technical error and app should be fixed now, the next rep responded that I violated their terms and was removed because of this. I then proceeded to ask what terms I violated and they responded that they couldn’t tell me due to privacy reasons ( so you cant tell me about my own account great). Horrible customer service I called in and a rep with a really heavy accent said something about having my Snapchat info on the bio and deleting my account to make a new one. ( doing that didn’t help I’m blocked so every account I make keeps being disabled ) their reps are incompetent that rep obviously didn’t know what a hold button was kept me on hold with no music. And kept giving me the run around. Their follow up is horrible and their communication between reps is as well how does one rep tell me technical issues and the other says violation get if together people. If I could give them 0 stars I would! My sc info was in my bio for years now why didn’t you flag a warning and remove the info it’s not that serious. The way this app handles people is ridiculous. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP PEOPLE!

    This app has been constantly crashing as soon as I open it for the past month, ive been uninstalling reinstalling the app. I have a paid membership and this is unacceptable. There is no web based version of this application which sucks. This is a far cry from anything useful. You need to address these issues a fast as possible.

    By Boost n Muscle
    Update: 2021 The app seems to be heavily geared towards manipulating men. The app often asks you to upgrade to premium, just to realize you can't see your matches, unless you upgrade a second time to V.I.P. The awaiting matches has risen from 0 to well over 100. I've set my profile distance to max, and these matches still never show up in my deck. The number just continues to go up, while I'm only matching with random people who seems to be swiping at the same time as me. This is predatory

  • Terrible customer service and account terminated with no explanation. Jan 9, 2021

    By C0nfused?????????
    My account was terminated 3weeks after me joining. I did not do anything inappropriate nor did I violate any terms or conditions. I reached out to customer service for an explanation of the alleged accusations and their response was they can’t tell me anything about my account due to privacy reasons which is absurd and makes no sense, not feasible at all. Also took about a month to get a response or email back. I requested a supervisor I did not get one and my dilemma is still unresolved. I know for a fact I didn’t do anything out of line but if u are terminating a account you owe the user an explanation and reason of action. Terrible customer service. Can’t even recommend this site. I can recommend POF Update Developer responded and told me to email them at appreviewsblk and acted like they wanted to help so I emailed the A MONTH AGO with screenshots from blk terrible customer service and responses AND THE DEVELOPER DIDNT EVEN REPLY OR HELP. Not one email from them. Their reply to my review to help was a front. My account was deleted for absolutely no reason possibly a glitch idk and blk won’t tell me why my account was deleted or not accessible. (tinder bumble pof and hinge is better than this crap. )

    If you simply like looking at pictures then you will enjoy this app. You purchase a "Premium" membership and that's all you can do. If you want to see who has reached out to you, it's an additional $10/mo. Premium membership is worthless. Let's just say that I gave a donation.
  • Nov 27, 2021

    By Kyy
    You can't see any profiles of people expressing interest if you don't purchase a membership. The app is also very glitchy, freezes up, doesn't honor parameter settings. Started conversations with over 100 individuals who "liked" my profile and every one was full of deception and wanted my Crypto info. I guess I hold give POF a try. My subscription will end soon and I will delete this app.
