  • needs lots of improvement


    By chrislmfao
    there are a lot of things that i think should be changed, first off the swipe feature isn’t the best, you only get 100 gems every 24 hours and each time you swipe right on someone it costs you 10 gems for a total of only 10 adds for one day. While swiping i have swiped right or left on someone on accident and when i press the yellow undo button it takes me to the profile BEFORE the one i had swiped on accident which defeats the entire purpose of the button, also using the undo button costs 20 gems! ridiculous!! whenever i do receive a friend request the only options i have are to “chat now” or to “add on snap” instead of just having an option that says “accept” that after pressing will add the person to your friends list. Lastly there is a reoccurring bug in which i receive a message and when i enter the app to see it the interface is blank, only showing the name on the profile and not the message, when this happens it happens to every other chat as well whether i have a new message or not. The feature where you can chat with a random person is not bad but sometimes when i decline someone they continue to pop up even after i have chatted with someone the same people i decline and even the ones that have declined me continue popping up instead of never doing so again after the first decline.
  • Good app


    By Fairview Aggie
    I just got this app today and I really like it. it’s really fun to be able to meet new people plus play the little games that they have on the app. There’s only a few things that are small problems: 1. I wish it would explain a little bit more as to why you got a friend request but no biggie. 2. It would be really nice if there was a list that you could look at of all the people that you have swiped right on because there are some people I swiped right on that I would really like to look at the profile again But I’m not able to unless they swipe right on me, but sometimes I forget I added the person first so you’re not sure if you should give them your snap or not. Bottom line it would be nice to have a list of all the people that you’ve requested/ swiped right on. 3. This isn’t exactly a complaint but just a warning for some people. When you put your birthday in it automatically sets your profile to your age but some people are going on the app and saying they’re a lot older than they actually are so just a fair warning some guys and girls might be a little bit older or younger than they say they are. Other than that it’s a really awesome app
  • Great app but.....


    By rosarrhh
    The apps good in all but it’s DEFINITELY NOT for twelve year olds. Nope! Why would parents even let kids be talking to strangers. The whole app is to make “friends”, even though half the time I was on there I had some weird and disturbing conversations that no twelve year old should be having. I even saw a very disturbing profile picture, which led me to deleting the app. It’s a good idea, but for me it’s kind of like tinder. All I’m getting is ‘your pretty’ and ‘wanna date’. When clearly the whole point of this app is to find FRIENDS. I don’t know why but all boys kept popping up when I clearly chose the opinion ‘everyone’ on the app. Not saying that’s there fault, but it keeps on happening. All I’m saying is that they should change the age limit for this app so that kids don’t think that it’s okay for them to download. And you could change a few things. Such as, you shouldn’t let people pit anything gross as there profile picture, and there should be a warning or consequence when they say something rude, disturbing, offensive, or anything of that sort. Thank you.
  • Riddled with bots and fake accounts


    By gabito510
    I feel that the first thing I should mention is that this app is not for kids and should definitely not be used by minors. The whole “meet new people” slogan is only a deceptive way of saying it’s a regular dating app. That being said, this app has an issue which I’m sure most if not all dating app user experience to a certain degree, and that is fake accounts. This app is riddled with bots, potential catfish, and porn sellers. Before using this app I was aware of all these potential dangers, but I was surprised to find that the majority of accounts on this app are fake. Fortunately though, the fake accounts are fairly easily to recognize, especially once you get accustomed to the app. Aside from this, I’d say the app is decent. My word of advice to anyone who plans on using this is to be as creative and descriptive as possible when creating your account to ensure to others that you are real, and look for the same criteria when swiping through random profiles. I’ve used the app for a little over a month and I’ve communicated with a handful of real people and made two friendships, and I haven’t had to pay a cent. If used safely and responsibly, this app might give you the results you look for.
  • Wink Review


    By Aaron/Erin
    Wink is a great app and I’ve made some friends from it and recently discovered that I share romantic feelings for someone I met via Wink. It’s a great way to find and make friends as well as for someone who might be searching for more than friendship☺️. The only suggestions I’d have is making the bio bigger. I’ve had trouble with it getting cut off or not saving due to too many characters being used and I wasn’t aware of the limit, and my name on the app always city’s off the last line or two. And adding a genderfluid and nonbinary option as genders because I myself am a nonbinary person and when I have to choose between female and male I know whichever I pick, if someone is set to not see guys, or to not see girls, then I know I won’t meet them even though I am neither🤕⛓ Anyways, it’s a wonderful app. And the people are really friendly 😌. I especially like the ability to chose what age group you’ll be in possible contact with.♡
  • Meh


    By jw6557360
    Honestly it’s great meeting people but theirs many problems that over time have gotten worse. I’ve had this app for about a year. I enjoy it very much but the glitches I’m about done with. I go to add someone and it won’t open their add the name will disappear. The app won’t let me change my profile pics after its up for a few weeks. I have to delete the app and get it again to do that. The chats it says I get them never get to see them on the chat list. If I get so see it I will get 40 notifications about it. The games are a good add on but really slow and after a few days they get really boring. The interest menu is good but come on put more on their. We all have more interest then just a few that it gives you. A lot of bots. I get about 8 adds from bots daily no matter the account. I don’t want fake people adding me. Kids are another thing. Yeah theirs age restrictions no one will listen to it 🤷‍♂️ make it where you actually have to be a certain age and make sure the pics aren’t of kids. I get young people adding me and I’m not comfortable with that. This app has all gone down hill over time the more they add in. I’d love all these to be fixed but no matter how many times it changes it just gets worse.
  • DO NOT DONWNLOAD!!!!!!!


    By Anonymous Unknown 7639
    Hello I know I had this app before and I want to make a review about this because this might be a theory or not I’m sorry if it doesn’t make sense but when the app doesn’t work it’s probably the company trying to gain access of our old information and it could possibly resurface because I read the rules something about licensing worldwide licensing that we allowed the company to do that stuff and the company might use our old information for bad things I’m sorry that this doesn’t make sense or I’m sorry that I’m starting trouble but you have to hear me out on this and think about it you can’t trust companies like this because our old information could resurface anything is possible that’s why sometimes when the wink app it’s not working it’s probably the company trying to gain access to our information so don’t put your information out there because I had this app before and I deleted it but but after when you deleted your information could resurface anything is possible so please I am warning you do not download it for a while I’ve been suspicious so I recommend for you not to download it because the company might steal your information read the rules I am warning you!!!!!
  • FIX THE BUGS!!!!


    By beccaboo35
    i’ve had to delete and reinstall the app like five times now. the last time i had it before i deleted it again like three weeks ago i had gotten zero adds when before i got maybe 20 per day. now i’ve reinstalled it today and i have possibly over 45 adds. and i hit the give snap button and it either hides the add or it goes to the bottom and then when i do it again it won’t go through. and i try and delete it out of my background but as soon as i get back on the app the people i’ve already added are back on that page ( still at the top or have moved to the bottom of the list) and won’t let me add them again. please for christ sakes stop making changes to the app and just fix the main problems. it bothers me so much how many times i’ve had to delete and reinstall just because somethings not working anymore. while that fixes some things it doesn’t stay for long at all. i’ve been trying to add these people for over an hour and it just keeps bugging out. i’ve deleted it from my background three times now.

  • Definitely NOT for kids


    By jdidjdjndjdd
    It gives off a tinder vibe. I get people asking if I want nudes or the exact opposite, kids putting please don’t ask for pics in their account description. It’s definitely a nice app but people are messed up 🤷‍♂️. Of course all apps are gonna be like this and some people are gonna be bad but the whole experience is just kinda lame. Your get to message like 10 people a day which might seem like a lot, but not when your new “friends” are all 40 year old me looking for dong pics. Another thing is people can pose as any age, from 13-18 and I think it’s weird to have your new teen son/daughter to be getting requests from 18yr old (it might have been 17yr olds) but still, it’s too much of a gap. (You can change the age setting though) Parents this isn’t an app for your kids, more like a dating app. I get the point was to make friends, but creeps turned it into this. Developers thanks for making a fun app, however for me and many others to enjoy it, please moderate more closely. There are kids.
