The new Android app OkCupid is a cool dating service that provides sociable atmosphere to users who look for much friendlier and casual dates rather than more intense and marriage centric. Started by a group of Ex-Harvard Statisticians, OkCupid works on a powerful matching algorithm based on user questions. It is free and less complicated and much better than its other competitors in the market.
The motive behind launching this app on Android is to introduce online dating to the Smartphone and to help you browse your matches in a friendly manner. With the help of this app you can select a date on the basis of distance, time, and level of likings and edit your profile to make it look appealing to your date. You can even send personal messages to your date-to-be and visit his or her profile while they see your profile and check your photographs.
The app looks more or less same as its parental site on Internet and most of its functions can be accessed from a single menu. However, some of the features like messaging and photo editing can be better done on site as the phone lacks good editing tools. Coming close to its important features, OkCupid has a rapid-fire â€ślocal matchesâ€ť mode that helps searching potential matches in just about four seconds. Other feature Q&A mode helps you with questions and answers related to your date or type of date you are looking for. The good part is it can be used with just one hand in case you are traveling or busy with work.
The app is equipped with 2.03 megabytes and same is very responsive in nature, which makes the loading of the page very quick.
OkCupid is undoubtedly one of the best online dating apps but with few shortcomings. The Android based application lacks silly quizzes and personality analysis metrics that can be helpful in comparing photographs of one another. Some of its screen elements are small and the speed with which the back button functions is quite irritating.
Bottom line Â
If we sideline all these shortcomings, the OkCupid app is reasonably well designed and it is quite useful for people who are in search of a friendly date. It is a worthy mobile app that gives you enough of the features at a price of nothing.
