Requiring coins to do literally everything is annoying, it definitely slows the whole process down. If you could watch unlimited adds, that would be ok, or instead of selling coins, the developers took a page out of most apps, and make a premium version for people who pay, vs a free version, but don't restrict the amount of swipes, messages, or anything else from free users. Give them incentive, without tieing their hands

The app let's you connect with people, but there is no way to filter results easily, and it only let's you go through a few people a day, after that you need to buy more coins to continue. The texting is often broken and you sometimes cannot see your or your friends messages, and can only read them in the preview box before clicking on them.

For the first time user, the app is good. But unfortunately, they should fix the chat box. The previous chat or the newly just read suddenly went missing or erase and I haven't read it yet. There's a pop up notification of 4 messages and when i opened it, there's nothing in there but the old conversation. You better fix this first.
