No notifications 3/5
By BRAD PO
You really need to put notifications as an option. I get messages and unless I stay on there 24/7 I won’t know until the next time I get on.
Can’t view photos-Don’t waste your money. 1/5
I’ve had the app for a few days now and since then I’ve been unable to view any photos even my own. I uninstalled the app and reinstalled it as well as restore my purchase, thinking it would help-nothing changed. I thought it was my WiFi or Carrier, but nope, I still ran into the same situation. Just wasted my money for nothing.
no profile photos and settings don’t uodate
Non-functional app 1/5
it takes you to one screen and then there is no way to get back to the home screen or to any other, you are stuck. Very surprised at the lack of basic functionality.
Can’t unsubscribe 1/5
By Laura from IA
This app won’t let you unsubscribe and will keep charging you bc there’s no way to actually unsubscribe. I followed the instructions and it tells me it can’t connect to the App Store. I’ve already done the unsubscribing steps twice and it’s still scheduled to run my card again later this month. If you go online and stop your renewal, that doesn’t work bc it runs through the App Store and Christian Mingle takes no responsibility for its program you can’t unsubscribe from. Don’t set up your financials through the app if you’re going to use it bc you can’t get rid of them. Now I need to contact apple to figure out how to stop this.
Don’t waste your money 1/5
By Adam W
I’ve been on Christian Mingle a few times over the years and it has one major problem: a limited selection of users, some who are paying but most who are not. This makes contacting people very hit and miss as you don’t know who is paying and thus can message you back. I’ve had several friends try this site with no luck. I’ve had better results finding quality Christian matches on eHarmony.
Cant see messages 1/5
I dont like how they changed the app. It looks nice but still functions bad. Before you could see if someone messaged or at least “smiled” at you then it motivated you to pay for months subscription. Now you cant see any messages or Likes or smiles! Which is Dumb. I dont care about it anymore because I cant see if anyone is interested in me. Poor customer service team as in the past. They need to understand consumer behavior better and maybe take a psychology class.
Update: Now they fixed it where you can tap on the envelope and then tap on a person who smiled or messaged you and NOW you can see the message they sent or smile they sent before you pay. It wasn't like that before with the new update.
Horrible User Experience 1/5
This review is not about the service. If the app worked half way decently I'd give five stars. The chat just is unusable.
Don't waste your time... 1/5
For starters, you can't remove profiles you aren't interested in even though the person is not what you are looking for. This forces you to continually search through the same profiles of people you aren't interested in to find any new potential connections and even if you finally find someone you are interested chances are they won't give you any time of day or response so that a connection even has a chance of being developed. Then there's the problem of the price required to talk to people. The price to subscribe is way overpriced considering it's all a gamble with no guarantee of paying off. I would look into other online dating apps if I was interested in continuing to pursue online dating. This app and my overall user experience has ruined any chance of using their services.
By CAITI F
I like the site, the app and website is terrible. Really slow and buggy and it takes forever to load sometimes. Sometimes my phone shuts off when I open the app but I’ve met some nice people on here
Change things up 2/5
Can you please make it kind of like Tinder in the sense that the other person cannot contact you or message you unless you both like each other or match... also the LookBook should be better, when you swipe left on someone they shouldn’t keep popping up. Also you should allow people to only put one picture, or a picture of not their face. This app should be simpler, like if you should only be able to contact the person you swiped right on. You can look at everyone and like whoever but can’t contact unless they both liked each other.
Advertise more bc I do not have a lot of them near me, this app should be free like Tinder. Make it better. Fix it.
Latest update is even worse than the last! 1/5
I’ve been on ChristianMingle off and on for a few years. The latest app update is absolutely terrible. The profile info is now all jumbled together, and CM got rid of the political preference section. That is important to some people! I guess CM is getting all PC! My profile views have dropped to about 25% of what they used to be with the new app. This site is a far cry from what it used to be, and I discontinued my membership. Such a shame that Sparks bought out CM and ruined the app and website.
By Grandma Dino
There seems to be more scammers than real people on here. Not too happy with the contacts that have been made, but trusting God that the right person just hasn’t been found yet.
Limited viewing 3/5
By Petunia Page
I used the site ten years ago and remember being able to look at lots of pictures and descriptions. Maybe the phone app is different from the online computer site
New app 1/5
I have been a member off and on this app for a couple years. This new app is terrible. I get a fraction of the interaction that I use to. I pay for a subscription then they ask for another payment on top of that one to be moved to the top of searches. Its about money not Christians interacting with Christians!
Your app is terrible 1/5
Messenger is glitchy and you’ll deleted spark and promised to bring it back and chat room and still nothing there’s nothing exclusive to you’ll anymore except you’ll charge a very high price compared to eharmony and match that offer way more for less.
Everything is money.. 1/5
You can’t do anything without paying 30$ minimum a month, this is crazy.
can not register 1/5
can not register
I am so disappointed with CM since you redesigned the app I can barely see people near me. So limited to navigate and get in touch with real people. I canceled my subscription. In the past I was able to see more people In my area. Now with the new design just a few. I can count them with my fingers literally
App fails to render icons 2/5
By Frederick C Doe
App fails to render icons correctly. All of the buttons show their attribute tags instead of the icons.
Christian Mingle, I can send you screenshots. Reply with the email address that I should send them to and a link to your public PGP key.
By jack 1965
I have the wrong age on myself and don’t know how to fix it
The search function does not work so you cannot see who is recently online.
Clunky and poor navigation 2/5
This needs work. It’s very hard to navigate out of the various pages.... the only option is to go all the way to the home page each time or restart the application.
Now that you change app 1/5
I do no like the changes you have made on the app. I would like to browser and look and read profile not just the three or four you give to me!
Where are all the Men? 1/5
I have had to change my settings to 500 plus miles to even begin to find enough men. I do not really want to do that. Very disappointed. I just joined last evening and very sorry I did. Betty
NOT WORTH IT ! 1/5
This used to be a decent app. Now, my so called “matches” are landscape photos, pictures of flowers, couples, group photos, people covered with Snapchat filters, and cats ! Really? CATS? Not a serious Christian dating site anymore. The app is not user friendly. It is not optimized for iPad. My recommendations are to make your platform a safe Christian site to match like minded believers or please remove the word “Christian” from Mingle.
Don’t like the changes 2/5
I️ am struggling with limited time to understand the changes and updates. Probably will not renew
Been taken 1/5
By Johnny 1954
Not user friendly
Have had it fifteen minutes
Not satisfied at all
No pictures to look at
Only one match that I don’t find to be a match.
Will probably be trying to get money back shortly
Feel like I’ve been ripped off in the name of Christianity
By 2many moves
When I first joined CM in August, it was wonderful. It was better then any other dating app because of all the questions u asked about Jesus Christ. Now, you get profiles that have very little information. If anyone gives me a smile I respond with the question, is Jesus a part of your life?There is not enough information on members, to decide if your interested. Please, please bring back the old format. sure I’m not the only one disappointed with the changes. Please, live up to your name, CHRISTAiN mingle. Sincerely,
An unhappy member!
This app is very cheap. It works sometimes for about 4-5 minutes then when you go look at a profile you get to see the first pic and all the other are either blacked out or grey’d out. Close app, re-open, re log in, then start over. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
Why is everyone unattractive? 1/5
By I swear I'm not shallow
Literally found no one attractive on this site. Not one person. It's weird.
New App Design is awful 1/5
First the search feature didn’t work on the old app design. Now, they fixed that... by taking away the search feature! They pick your matches for you! Isn’t that great! No keyword search, no way to find somebody in with your unique interests. They’ve decided the things that are really important to you.
It’s so clumsy. They should be ashamed.
Edit: well the developer has “responded” to my review by providing a tutorial on how to use their app, which I already figured out. Didn’t notice the word “search” in their response. I’ve interacted with spark networks already about all of this. It’s typical, they don’t do the whole “feedback” thing.
A lot of scammers and fake profiles. No locals. Site was better when it had chat rooms. A lot of cliques. Beware of the lifers.
No one responds 1/5
They make you pay extra so others respond and then they still don’t
Still being charged 2/5
I deactivated my account but I am still being charged. What’s going on??
Update got rid of my subscription! 1/5
The new update got rid of the subscription I purchased. Isn't this illegal?! Support won't help this is ridiculous.
Really pricey. Premium feature is $50. Doesn’t seem equitable with other services or there.
Other than that the product is okay.
App doesn't even deserve one star 1/5
Terrible app, don't waste your money. Messaging people barely works, almost all the time my messages would get cut off. A lot of the profiles aren't real people, the pictures are ads for porn sites and what not. A lot of profiles are also just people looking around and not really members so don't really get to know them. Just don't waste your money...
Not a great option 1/5
By Darryn w
Not a lot of people to choose from plus I think that there should be an option that when you send someone a message that you can eliminate them from your search. Also, I messaged a person and then a couple of weeks later that person came up on my notifications as ‘new match in my area’. Really? I sent our several messages and didn’t get any responses and had only one person reach out to me.
New Update canceled my subscription! 1/5
By W stork
Save your money! I feel so stupid! I paid for a full 6 months and I’m not even three months in and very disappointed! A few weeks ago, I installed the update for Christian Mingle and ever since I haven’t been able to access my profile at all. Requested my password info and never got an email back. Maybe I’ll try EHarmony
What happened!!?? 1/5
The latest update of this app is horrible! Take it back to the previous version!
By Jon Partridge
Real people, actually conversations. It's WORTH paying for
Your prices are outrageous. $30 for a single month. I gave it a try and I still feel like tinder/bumble have better functionality. Im not going to keep spending $30/month to send messages to people that cant even respond because they arent paid members.
Questionable business practices 1/5
I would give this app zero stars. Recently started chatting with someone who claims was born in the US and has awful writing. Asked for a picture of the hand (this is an odd picture for scammers to have) and contact was "offended" and tried profusely to explain why she wouldn't do that when I said that I would write and blog about this site's practices. Most of the profiles are fake!! Do not waste your time or money. Will look into demanding my money back. Makes sense now coming from Sparks Network, registered as an escort company!
Save your money 1/5
The way this new update is set up doesn’t make the app any better. It’s really frustrating how your “matches” are nothing what I had put for my preference. It will have maybe one or two things in common and possibly one preference and say that it’s a 91% match. Super inaccurate. Also, with this new update I try to go to the app but it just pops up saying update the app in the App Store and takes me to the App Store (even though I did the update) just to open the app. Also, I enjoyed reading one’s profile and the way it is set up now, as someone mentioned before, it’s like a knock off version of tinder, and I don’t like that. I definitely wish I would have saved my money and not purchased it. There are other dating sites that are more affordable and functional. I haven’t been on many (meaning I haven’t paid for them but looked into it) and chose CM because I was hoping to find some like minded people in their faith. If you’re considering CM it’s better to wait when they have a promotional going on rather than wasting your money.
New App. 5/5
Ever since the New App can out they want me to re-up, even thought they already charged me. Trying to get assistance is useless. All they want is to take money in.
Can’t get in the chat room 1/5
By Undeservedly blest by God
Have tried can’t get in. They get their money and all I have is predators they eventually send you a notification about. Most of the time I had to tip them off. I took my profile down and I planned to not return but they had suckered me for a year membership and I thought I will endure and see if there could be a miracle. Suddenly matches were almost non existent or so far away it was impossible to date. I have nothing for these so called Christians. They are money hungry!
By Britney Z
I updated this app and now I can even use it it keeps telling me I need to update but there is no update to do
Confusing and difficult 1/5
I hate to say it but this app is terrible since the updates. Can’t view previous conversations and I’m not too sure new communications are coming through. Tech support has been unconcerned and rude.
Not satisfied with the new format. 1/5
What did you do to the format?????? It's terrible! Bring back the old one....NOW!
