happn is the new leading dating app that lets you easily locate the person that caught your eye in real life but whom you didn’t have the guts to dare approach. With this app for all Android devices, Windows phones and Apple gadgets, you can meet with the people you’ve crossed paths. Here’s a review of the Windows Phone, iOS and Android app, which has been tested on the latter two platforms.
The app has a user-friendly design as well as an intuitive interface, making it easy for anyone, including first-time users, to access and utilize the features it contains. The developers also considered the science of colors and gave the app a blue theme which goes well with this genre of apps. The straightforward and intriguing design scores a 4.7/5.
The happn app employs a more efficient way of matching people compared to other apps of the same genre. The idea behind the app is that you get to see the people with whom you share similar interest and have crossed paths in the real world. It uses your handset’s GPS to find a match within your proximity. It will also notify other users within the same area of your presence. The latest version comes with a myriad of enhancements and an updated design.
You can secretly ‘like’ a person, and they won’t know it unless they like you too. To contact them, you can send them a charm which you acquire as in-app purchases. The cheapest purchase is the starter pack of ten credits that goes for $1.99, and the most expensive one is the happn six months subscription that goes for $71.99. happn is compatible with iOS 8.0+ gadgets, Windows 10 Mobile and Windows Phone 8.1 smartphones, while Android support varies with device. The features of this tool score a solid 4.8/5.
Convenience and Performance
happn gains a competitive edge over other trending dating apps thanks to the distinct geo-targeted system. The app works seamlessly without lags and has never crashed on my iPad, iPhone or Galaxy S8. The search diameter is also wide enough for you to easily find a match around the locations you’ve been to. On convenience and performance, the app scores a 4.7/5.
- It’s a free app for all three platforms: Android mobile, iOS, and Windows Phone;
- You’re only matched with those who you have a crush on;
- You earn credits if you invite friends.
- The app limits your interactions since matches are created based on proximity;
- The idea of matching users with someone they’ve brushed shoulders may make it uncomfortable to commute the same way if a match goes south;
- The in-app purchases limit the app use.
happn is designed for those interested in finding and dating people who they already have a crush on. With this app on your phone, you have the opportunity to find anyone whom you’ve already come across in real life. Despite being crippled by its own limitations, I would still recommend happn as the most interesting concept among the dating apps. If you’re seeking a unique dating experience yet approaching the people you like seems daunting, then this is the app for you.
