Badoo is better than Tinder, there's an issue with men posing as women. Key features like seeing mutual likes and sending messages without credits are lacking. Bugs persist, like notifications without follow-through. Limited options and persistent ads plague the experience. Filters don't save, and location deception is common. The latest update removes the ability to favorite matches, pushing users towards paid features. Profiles are often hidden, favoring foreigners over local matches.

I just want to submit feedback for improvement. There's no dedicated area to see who you liked AND who liked you together. For some conversations, there's no heart button or ability to send a message without paying credits. The unmatched button only shows up for some users. Also I get notifications that someone saw my profile, then I'll go in the app and check the notifications tab and nothing. There's definitely a lot of bugs and key features that need to be addressed, otherwise its a great app

Limited options! after I set basic filters, age, orientation, and distance, there's been nobody to swipe on for days, just a prompt to update my filters, which are already set outside my comfort zone. Also, everyone is "photo verified," but when you match with someone and send a message no response even when they're online, what a waste of time. I'm deleting my profile and requesting a refund
