To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.As successful as it is forming long-distance relationships and successful marriages, Tinder has long been accused of changing dating into some form of hookup game.But it’s the king of the dating hill for a reason and the first port-of-call for many daters.The fact that the chat room expires after a week puts some pressure on you to exchange phone numbers or meet up in real life or to just quietly fade away without any fuss.The interface is also relatively user-friendly, with large photos and clean text. Although Coffee Meets Bagel allows for a range of super specific preferences, the bagel it sends you may or may not match your specified preferences and, more often than not, if they do, they will be a significant distance away.
This creates a percentile score for users that reflects your compatibility.
You can also earn “beans” that allow for extra app functions, either by purchasing them outright, recommending the app to your friends, or logging in on consecutive days.
Props to Coffee Meets Bagel for having the cutest name of all the dating apps.
It might work on a dating website where that much information would presumably be read on a larger screen, but it’s overkill on an app, and the amount of scrolling required makes it annoying to access.
When you exit back to the list, there’s no guarantee that it’ll be in the same order or that it will return you to the spot you scrolled down to, making it extremely obnoxious to keep track of what you’ve already viewed.
