HookedUp is a social meeting platform through which you can connect, meet and date people with similar interests. All the profiles go through a strict verification process increasing their credibility. Most importantly, the application is free and doesn't have any in-app purchases.
User can connect with profiles without them knowing about it and connections are established only when they connect back. If you don't like a profile you have two options: Show Later or Reject. In Show Later option, the profile will come back for viewing after sometime. But, under Reject option the profile will be removed permanently. If a user deletes his/her account and logs in back again, only then the rejected accounts will be visible again.
Profiles are displayed first on the basis of your Settings filters, then on the number of mutual interests and then on the distance if there are no mutual interests.
By default, sliding the profiles to the left triggers the Show Later option which cannot be changed. So, if you slide a profile left, that profile will come after sometime. There is no option of sliding the profile right. To connect with a profile, user has to click on the Connect button.
