Social networking and dating on the go
OkCupid is a free social networking and dating app for Android smartphones.If you're curious about finding that special someone, or even just looking for new people in your area to hang out with, Facebook probably isn't going to cut it for you. That's why OkCupid exists - to let you get in touch with people in your area based on shared interests.Unlike other dating apps, OkCupid has no restrictions. Users can search, chat and send messages from the start.
It will be easiest if you fill out your profile via OkCupid's site directly. Your OkCupid profile is constructed of a mixture of your own personal answers to a specific set of questions, as well as your responses to hundreds of questions sent by other users. These questions are used to create a compatibility score, based how your answers, what answers you would accept from other users, and the level of importance you place on each question. From there, you'll see a percentage next to the OkCupid username of each person whose profile you view, telling you how high of a match, friend, or enemy you are based on the way both you and that user answered the same questions.
In addition to questions, OkCupid allows you to upload pictures of yourself and search by keyword. You can also rate users on a scale of 1 to 5 star. If the user you rated a 4 or 5 star gives you the same rating, you'll get an automatic email knowing you two match up. You can also send private messages on OkCupid to anyone you like.
The Android app works just like the online site, with a convenient menu bar at the bottom of your screen that you can back out of if you don't want to see it. The app also has Push notifications, so you'll know immediately if someone sends you a message or is checking out your profile. The app's a little testy when it comes to recognizing new Wi-Fi connections but otherwise runs well and is pretty easy to navigate.
Whether you're looking for friends, a long-term relationship or just want to have fun taking quizzes, OkCupid is a fun app to browse around on.
