And it’s actually not that tedious to fill in your own profile, thanks to the Tinder-like yes-or-no swiping game (e.g. Swipe right for yes, and left for no.”) Unlike Tinder, it’s easier to get a gauge of what kind of person you’re checking out.Then again, Tinder’s originally just for hookups so I can’t blame it too much for being that, uh, minimal.
Algorithms are smarter and sharper, and you can meet up with people in your area in literal minutes if you wanted to.
So, we rounded up a few Rapplers to test out 5 popular dating apps – Tinder, OKCupid, Skout, EHarmony, and How About We – and tell us what they thought; and how flattered or dirty they felt after.
There’s that extra-special ‘kilig’ factor, plus you won’t be bothered by anyone you don’t want to be bothered by.
It’s also a huge deal that you always view profiles in complete anonymity; I wouldn’t want to come off as a perv – even if I sometimes am. You might get a little sick of swiping left after a while but hey, at least you’re sure that the only one who gets to talk to you are people you’ve already pre-approved.
This app highlights your compatibility with a person so you can better judge if they’d be a good match but, honestly, answering the unending questions was more fun for me than browsing through the choices.
