This app lacks so much compared to others. I refuse to pay as much as you're asking for premium, and nothing really works well. The distance selector is terrible. You select a distance it shows you maybe 2 people per day that live within the distance, then everyone else is 150+ miles away. Setting profile pictures is annoying because it won't allow the full frame of the photo, so you have to crop it way down. It's almost impossible to match with others. So much more to add. Terrible app!

Hi Chris! Our recommendations work as follows, once you've seen all of the people in your area, the app will start to show you members from gradually farther locations. Regarding the problem with photos, we'll have our team of experts checks what can be the problem, please email us directly at appreviews@upward-app.com and add the subject ELL0526.

It's not that it's completely terrible but it's unrefined. I made the mistake of subscribing thinking it might add extra features to help, no. Terrible purchase. When I put in an age range and distance it defaults back to max and max, what a waste of time. Can I do a return? OkCupid is slightly more refined but I don't want to pay for multiple subscriptions.

App has added a distance feature, which is a plus, though it will still show you profiles of users who live 125+ miles away. I think it should only show profiles of users that are within the radius you choose. Also, it'd be nice to have a "Verify" feature, so it increases the possibility that a user is the person they're saying they are.
