  • way to many glitches

    By Harrison Prince
    This is app is ok and i’ve made friends, but there’s so many glitches. first, there should be more games to earn gems with, like quick little mini games like the others. maybe a game like temple run or something. also maybe achievements to get some gems could be fun, and we definitely need more games to play with people we meet in messages. also we should be able to immediately chat with someone from the swipe screen, if that makes sense. and there needs to be an easier way to add someone and to search for people. next, one glitch i’ve seen is that sometimes when i open the app, it acts like i don’t have an account, with the default 200 gems, no messages and no requests, and i have to close the app and open back up for it to remember my stuff. also sometimes when i go to messages they’re all blank except for the name, and i have to close the app to get them to show up. and on requests it’ll have the dot like i have a new one, but i don’t so the dots just there and it annoys me sometimes. just easy big fixes i think. there’s also a glitch where it sends me like 9 notifications that someone sent me a message, if they only sent me one. also just opened and all my gems are gone. went from 1560 to 60, i don’t know what happened to them. also a glitch where it lets me check in and get 100 gems over and over and over again, without having to wait 24 hours. just a lot of bugs that need to be fixed.
  • 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
  • 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.♡
  • Amazing but buggy

    By Ronan975
    Amazing app, I’ve met so many people through this app and it’s really really cool because you can make friends easily and get to know people quite quickly. However there are a couple bags that I’ve noticed quite a few times and one of them in my opinion is extremely problematic. Essentially the bug makes it so that you can’t spend any of your gems or at least you don’t know if you are spending any of them. The number of 850 gems which I have is not being spent or moved up and down therefore I don’t know if I’m actually swiping on people or if it’s just skipping them and there’s no way to see those profiles again. It could also be a glitch where I’ll lose these gems later, but even if that’s the fact they should still try and fix this because it’s something that is inconvenient.
  • This app is so dumb now

    By Mrcritic220
    Please fix this app it use to be running fine and I didn’t mind the update but the creators of this app fix one problem and hen create another like it’s so stupid today it wouldn’t let anyone load into the app at all and then after that I tried to get on the app and it does that thing that it usually does where it says it’s in maintenance so I’m like oh cool there fixing it so after they fix the loading problem another pops up so people have been requesting my snap and I would give it to them and after I did that it would never save like there names would pop right back up in my request list and I would give it to them again hoping that it would save this time and then it won’t it would litterally pop up requests that I already excepted hours ago so I would back through and give my snaps to all those people again and again and again and again and they would always pop it back up in my request list Wink your app use to be cool but you guys got to either go back to the old days or fix all the bugs and I mean ALL THE (BUGS)!!!!!!!!!!
  • Used to love it

    By kaula.1234
    When I first got Wink it seemed super cool because I actually met more people some good some bad but it was better than Hoop in my opinion but I’m starting to hate the app now. When I first got it, it was perfect no bugs or glitches sometimes just took a second to load but that was fine. Although it randomly started to act up and would say someone requested my snap yet when I checked it nothing I tried reloading it but it just took forever to load and did nothing. I then decided to delete the app and reinstall it thinking it would’ve fixed the problem but it made it worse. It told me that I basically had seen everyone in my area for now and asked if I wanted to change to “Worldwide” so I did but it literally did nothing then I tried to delete and reinstall the app and the same results. I would’ve given this app four stars if they only had a few bugs but still worked. But I can’t even use the app anymore so it was good while it lasted. I wished they would fix this problem so I can continue to use it.
  • New Update is Terrible

    By Okay whaaa?
    The app itself is fantastic, and when I first got it things were great. But there are issues with the new update. •First and foremost, the introduction of chats in matches... you are no longer able to view the person’s profile & pictures to know who you are talking to. Much less a common bug that doesn’t allow you to open the chat. •Next, uploading pictures to your profile are mirrored, which can especially create issues if the pics you’re uploading have text on them. Upload quality does not seem as clear or crisp either. •Last, more of an annoyance than anything, the app is being overrun with people promoting their Premium Snapchats (for selling nudes and pornography) ; and also the matter of being constantly contacted and spammed by fake profiles. I believe greater measures could and should be taken by Wink to clear out the garbage on there so that connecting with new people and making new friends would be less tedious and frustrating.
  • This is a good app but this needs added

    By MTheEggLord
    I’m not a demanding person and I’m not going to go on some big rant if I don’t get what I want. Truth is, this is an AMAZING app. I have met so many new friends. Great friends even. It’s nice having an app that can allow us to find people all around the world and become friends with them. We can learn about their cultures and believes. Morals and values as well. It’s just, so many people request to be your friend and then you end up sitting there for an hour clicking “add snap”. It’s frustrating. I think if you’d add some place where we can accept all request it’s be very helpful and not only helpful but improve this app a lot more. It’s gives us a chance to talk to everyone whom requests to be friends. Right now, I haven’t even been accepting due to how long it would take to add everyone.
  • Good needs safety improvements...

    By ijustworkhereiguess...
    This has happened to me about 10 times so i know other people might be experiencing it as well: i swipe on somebody who looks a little too familiar and go type in something like “aesthetic white e-boy photo” into google and the exact picture they used pops up meaning this person is not who they say they are posing major safety issues like adults looking to harm minors and i’ve also seen multiple accounts with the same pictures as other people’s meaning people are stealing photos...your team (i’m assuming)should also work on being better at making sure nudes are not on the accounts as well as grown men looking for young boys and girls to harm...i understand the internet is a dangerous place but you have to take responsibility as creators to make a fun yet secure app.
