Parts of the app are just difficult to use — for example, the swipe up for images isn't smooth. Once I was sending a message to someone and she disappeared right out of my inbox — my best guess is that I accidentally hit "unmatch". (I'm not someone who has difficulty with any other mobile apps!) They have an "undo" feature — but it's behind the paywall! Also, it's too bad you can't see who liked you without paying, like you can in Hinge, unless you happen to click like on each other's profiles.

Honestly I really want to like this app, it has nearly everything right. The only problem is that there is no location filter! I can't seem to see anyone within 250 miles of me, and I don't live in a very unpopulated area. Please fix this, I really would love to be able to actually use this app. Edit: Although the aforementioned proximity issue has been somewhat remedied, it seems like the app has gotten more buggy over time and is now borderline unusable. Re-rating to 1/5 from 2/5.

It's a good concept to help Believers find only other believers, but non of the filters work properly, and you have to swipe left on someone multiple times. The distance doesn't follow the guidelines you set and you get people up to 300 miles away. And the preferences they allowed you to set don't actually filter out incoming people to swipe on.
