Good profile builder, detailed tabs
Some features need premium
POF Free Dating App for Android is a detailed and smart dating app for users looking to find a relationship. The app has a lot of different ways to find people around your area, and it also has extensive profile creation that includes your interests, your physical information, and even your idea of a first date. It’s a full fledged dating app that uses an algorithm to match you with other users of your preferred gender and age.
You start off using the application by making your profile. Then, once you have filled in it’s detailed selections, you can explore different tabs. Perhaps most interesting is the “Ultra Match” tab, in which you can use the app’s advanced algorithms to find matches for you. I’m not sure how it works, but I assume it takes a lot of things from your profile and your interests.
Most dating services claim to have secret formulas and algorithms, but no one is really sure how well they work and if you can prove they do. The way I see the tab, for now, is just another way to view prospective users. If the matching did work within the frames of “nicknames” people pick for themselves, I could see it being somewhat effective. I picked “geek” for my name, and perhaps another geek girl would be matched up with me. But even with that, things like physical attraction and other details might not be able to be measured and predicted.
There is also a “Locals” tab which lets you conveniently look at people nearby. The “My Matches” tab seems to work on a few key details like if you smoke or not. This tab is good for finding users based on a strict criteria that you can’t compromise on.
Unfortunately, a lot of the app’s best and most useful features require payment. Tabs that let you see who viewed or like you, are some examples. If you really like this app, I don’t see this being that big of a deal because most free dating services are similar.
POF Free Dating App is free in a lot of ways. You can view other users through a variety of different but helpful tabs. The profile creation is also pretty extensive, which might prove useful when browsing for your true love.
