We didn’t encounter as many crashes, either. Unfortunately, the more we tested, the more we experienced lag when switching between parts of the app, making our search for fast love painfully slow.
Interface and Profiles
Zoosk’s interface is pretty basic. You mostly swipe through profile photos, and review the basic personality details required by the signup process. Want to learn more? There’s a prompt to read someone’s story, which includes their personal bio and details on their perfect match and ideal dates. If you want to express interest in a fellow member, you can tap a smiley face (indicating friendship) or a heart icon (indicating…more than friendship). You can also write your own message or send one of Zoosk’s pre-written icebreakers.
You’ll still encounter profiles that couldn’t be bothered to fill out a name, “A Zoosk Member,” but many profiles are clearly real. For extra credibility, you can verify your profile using a photo, your phone number, or Twitter. This slaps a green check mark on your profile to prove you’re legit. You also won’t encounter quite as many ads. Don’t get us wrong, you’ll still see more ads while swiping through profiles compared to other dating apps, but compared to past versions of Zoosk it’s much less aggressive.
