Happn has fewer settings than similar apps and notably lacks a filter for languages spoken, so you have no idea if you can communicate with a match, particularly if you don't speak the local language in your area. A distance setting is also missing. It's not good enough simply to look for local matches if someone might be willing to relocate within a country for the right match. E-mail verification fails with a server error, and support says it cannot be verified later. Not worth paying for.

This app seems to have all kinds of problems. I'll get a notification of a match, and I'll click on it, then try to click on the profile of my match and I just get a spinning loading wheel that never loads. The only thing that seems to work is closing the app and reopening it. Other times, when looking at my matches, I will click yes or no on someone. I briefly see a flash of my next match before it disappears and takes 10 seconds to load, sometimes it will happen 3 times before finally loading

Doesn't work. None of the screens work. The only way iv been able to see anything is to switch between tabs and things will pop up for a second and then disappear again. Update: Customer service is god awful. After sending screenshots and details of what the issues are and letting them know what I had done to troubleshoot they continue to just say it must be my fault or my connection. Not even getting what my issue is and trying to troubleshoot a completely different thing. Worst app on here.
