App is mediocre at best 3/5
I’ve dated a number of women in my life now at 24. So I would consider myself to have a worthy amount of experience when it comes to that of the opposite sex, I’ve also encountered women who wouldn’t necessarily go for a guy such as myself, but have won them over in the end. Not for my looks, I’ve been told by many I’m an attractive black male and I also model. Just by my general interests being different. However, in the off chance of matching with people, you are limited due to the lack of worthy descriptions of yourself. Personal info questions such as: “do you desire children, are you looking for long term or hook up, is sexual chemistry important, do you happen to drink or smoke” etc are all but missing in this apps protocol. The only thing you can really gain from seeing a persons profile is an “about me” tab, and more often then not it’s left blank. So all you see is picture of them an how far away they are. The app also needs a reminder tab to let you know to swipe today bec many people will literally forget they have the app sometimes and will message you back a day or 2 after you sent a message (I’m guilty of this myself) Little things like this can quickly improve the apps overall usability and user-friendliness.
Kinda boring... 2/5
I appreciate the idea, and am grateful that the app itself never had any glitchy issues. However, it is quite boring. There are no matching algorithms, just based on looks. We all know looks can be deceiving. I’ve had many matches, but very few who actually respond to a message or message first after being matched. I would also love the opportunity to match with people outside my state, as the dating pool here is small.
Better than anything else 4/5
Not very many matches in my city... hardly any, but it is nice to have a platform for us to be amongst ourselves and mingle.
Blk app 5/5
I love this app . The brothers on there are handsome, and have a lot going for theirselves . I also met my boyfriend on there . We met in December and now we’ve been together for 3 months thus far . We’ve been on trips together to Vegas and etc . Thank you for this app, because I would of never met my handsome king.
Found Love Again 5/5
My last 2 relationships were trash. I seen this app on Snapchat and I was like hey why not. There were so many different kinds of men and multiple personalities but it was one who stood out to me the most and I couldn’t be more happier. 3 months a pure fun and genuine interest. He’s an amazing guy and Thanks To BLK I’ve found my happy place again🥰🥰
I like the app but why am I see people way out of my distance
Need more professional males 2/5
Only loser guys on here with mediocre jobs or trying to be rappers, producers, actors, and or models. No professional men! Barely any men who have college degrees. Find better quality men on Bumble.
Still no manual way to set a distance for people you wanna see. Still showing me women who live 50, 90 and 150 miles away.. You can pretty much find women from all ethnic groups on this app at this point lol... Still can’t see all my messages, the app still lags and crashes all the time.. Still needs hella improvement.
Great App!! 5/5
I was fortunate to find my soulmate on this app thanks to BLK❤️😁👍
Either I’m ugly or the app is broken 2/5
And I doubt it’s the first one. I use tinder but I’m tired of the same people. So I thought I’d give it a try. But I’ve been on here for a few days and only 2 matches show. And I’ve been instantly matched with people. Idk what’s going on but app isn’t as helpful as planned. So many beautiful people on here though I just can’t meet them.
An exercise app to ensure thumb fitness! 2/5
This app has potential. It’s easy to use and I have right swiped a number of women, whom I found cute. However, it has gotten me nowhere. And I’m a cute dude. This app relies to much of physical attraction. Do you know how many women I have dated, in which I wasn’t the type they typically go for? More than I can count. Even though I wasn’t their typical type, I won them over with my confidence, conversation, personality, charisma, sense of humor, etc. Physical attraction is important, but that’s not the only way to spark attraction. This app needs to have a message function. Even if they limit the messages that can be sent per day, that would help immensely to get some interaction occurring between men and women. The odds that two people will right swipe each other is far fetched, and like I said in my title, this is nothing more than an exercise app for your thumb if conversations are not transpiring.
I’m trying !!! 3/5
Hmm it’s great to know it’s meant for my lovely people!! We’re all mostly here as always considering!! Ok it would be nice to leave a message w/o matching and if you DON”T want the message or person they can be blocked!! I think I’d meet more than the 2 that I have matched!! To much like Tinder and yes the distance issues? I’m sure you already kno!! I’ve been swiping for awhile now and not luck with responding!! And yes I’ve swiped right several times but still waiting to be seen I guess!!! Hope it gets better
Nice App But.... 3/5
Overall I enjoy the app. However I thought it was a Black Dating App. I get in 2019 it’s not politically correct but Id prefer if the app was more exclusive to Blacks. I like being able to send messages for free. And so far there seems to be a better quality of prospects than Ive seen on other apps.
Racial bias 1/5
I guess 1/5
By geedub 39
This the site they don’t respond I’m not a ugly guy lol then again it’s a blk woman app only way blk women will respond if you look like you have money and talking about tricking if you want atleast a response try pof
Account Access Needs Work 4/5
By Ahmyla B.
It’s honestly a great app: simple and effective. However, the way the app is linked to its users is unorthodox to say the least. I don’t like the fact that the only ways to get into your account is either through your number, or through Facebook. Not everyone has a Facebook, and not everyone is able to receive texts on their phone, or in my case receive texts from an old number. It’s a little frustrating. Hopefully they fix this soon because like I said it’s a good app, but I won’t be downloading it again without my account.
App is fine but.... 4/5
By Christoff 2.0
App is fine but..... I am annoyed that this app is not fully covered with black beautiful delicious women, it has Caucasian and Hispanic and that’s not, I haven’t been matched up with anyone yet on this app but this app doesn’t seem to show any signs of any bugs from my knowledge and use of the app it’s a good spa far...............🤙
Whites and Hispanics need to get off 5/5
By La Bronte
Y'all got tinder and MEX let black people have something
kinda wack! 1/5
There should be an option to choose how far or close you want to contact someone, 100 miles doesn’t narrow it down and is usually farther than the 100 miles. There’s a sprinkle of caucasian men, why, is it not BLK only? I’ve come across males with more than one profile. My profile was deleted and I had to sign up over again. There are still glitches. A lot of the males don’t realize once you match you can communicate, I mean it tells you right then and there. Just go through it with a fine tooth comb, not a wide. I deleted my profile due to all of this. If there were an option for negative stars i’d give this app that.
Like a black tinder 5/5
By J Grannum
The app works fine. It is what you make it: you can match with people and send unlimited messages. I’ve met people in person and it’s been fine. For a free app, what more could you ask for?
This app has a lot of growing to do no doubt but, this app was strange. I could not send anyone messages, most of the girls on the app 50 plus miles away from me which was a turnoff. I’ve had some luck currently talking to two girls on this app I’m hoping things go well. But in terms of the app nothing that I was looking for which was disappointing because you can’t send messages, and the distance. If I had the opportunity to download would? Maybe but not right now. I think it’s best to take a break from dating. Good luck!
Mile radius 4/5
I like this app I’ve meet a few people off here in person no catfishes. The only thing I have a concern about is the mile radius on the app. I’m seeing guys that are 300, 400 miles away from my location. I don’t live in that area nobody isn’t going to match with me if we are 400 miles away. If the mile radius resets after a certain extent and goes back to my location that would be great.
BLACKS ONLY!! 1/5
I want to know why this site promotes blank on single. But yet I’m seeing more & more white women pooping up. That’s ridiculous! They have their own sites. This is solely for us. Don’t promote something that it’s not. BLK needs better vetting systems of user profile pictures and info to avoid this increasing problem.
Location distance 2/5
There should be and option to set a distance for the people you match with!
By pc streamer
App need a lot of work still have bugs that need to be fixed
Not impressed 1/5
By Not Impressed 77
Not that many choices to choose from same guys from POF. I’m not impressed, I thought I that I was going to have better choices of looking at more attractive men. 👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾
Needs better location options 3/5
The app is pretty good so far I just would want in the future to be able to find people located closer to my area not so far away.
No Bio 3/5
By Mandy Cent
Can’t see anyone’s bio. Wish the app gave more of what each person is seeking. Can save time.
Needs a way to limit the search radius 3/5
The app is cool, but there needs to be a way to limit our search radius. I’ve met some great people but things do not work out due to the distance.
Good but not quite there yet 3/5
Stumbling upon this app was great for me. Finally a dating app that is dominantly colored folks that is easy to use and don’t try to steal the inside of you wallet as soon as you create an account. The only thing I would love to see added to this app is a distance filter. Because yes, it’s great that I can match with women of color and different ethnical backgrounds, but what good is that to me if every one of them that I match with is upwards of 100 mi away. It’s a dating app right? I’m not willing to drive 50+ miles to have a date with someone. I feel that adding a way to adjust the maximum distance would benefit this app tremendously
I like it 4/5
By Slip back
That app is real but y’all need to fix the distance. The distance should be optional. 85,90,100 miles away is ridiculous. I would rate this a 5stars but 4 is better for now.
Needs a little work 2/5
Has great potential but a lot of technical issues. I have my preferences set to men, but I’m getting men, women, and profiles of men whom are seeking other men. It’s a little all over the place. There’s also a lot of spam profiles that get in the way. I wish there was a mileage setting because I’m seeing profiles over 100 miles away.
It Needs Some Major Improvements 2/5
This App Has So Much Potienal But I Keep Getting Men 60+ miles Away From Me 😑. That Needs To Be Fixed.
App crashed 1/5
The app crashed not allowing me to sign back through my Facebook account I tried to sign in with my phone number but it makes me create a completely different account. Not worth the time
My suggestions 5/5
I like the app I have met a couple of great guys have them in on any date but some of the conversations but it would be nice to narrow down the distance of the people you’re talking to because it’s really unsettling knowing that some of the good ones are like 100 miles away for me and all the sucky ones live right near mean it be nice to narrow down how far someone is before I start a conversation
Ok App 4/5
I like the app. There’s two things that need work..being able to go back to a previous person in case you accidentally swipe the wrong way and being able to put a maximum distance because I don’t not enjoy seeing fine men I would like to talk to who live over 25 miles away from me.
Waste of time... 1/5
You can only “connect” with a person you’ve “super liked”... you only get 1 free super like per day... There’s no way to connect with anyone else without purchasing more “super likes”. 👎🏾👎🏾
Don’t Waste your Data 1/5
F*cking trash. This app is vastly under developed. You cannot look through pics and go back to scrolling(major problem). To the developers...study other apps of your kind to find ways to improve.
By beautiful goddess.
This app is okay. There’s definitely a few black folks on here (also white)... my only problem with this app is that every so often you have to make a new profile which is absofuckinglutely ridiculous because you lose all the people you’ve matched with.. now I see why I keep seeing the same guys 3+ times. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED!!!!
App Crashes 2/5
Great app and the people on there are more genuine than others. I gave it two stars because It no longer lets me use my Facebook login. It’s def not worth starting over if an “oops!” Message keeps popping up
Cool App 3/5
The app is cool and all but it keeps logging me out of my account for some reason. This glitch needs to be fixed.
There needs to be a filter on the Races that come on the app. It’s called Blk for a reason. It’s supposed to be exclusive to blacc people. It even says it in the description about the app. I’ve been seeing more white and Hispanic men on here
Great, But Distance feature? 2/5
I love the app because it’s so nice to have a place primarily for African American people to connect with one another. The only thing that frustrates me, is there’s no feature to select the distance from me and the majority are close to 100 miles away. Please change this
Best dating app ever‼️‼️ 5/5
By funsyze 😘
I usually don’t write reviews but this app is absolutely perfect!! I get to meet black men in my age range. I can actually real decent men with careers and education and personality!! I truly appreciate this app!
One feature that can be fixed is when someone message you....it should show show the notification when talking to multiple people and to be able to share the app with other people
Other than that I absolutely love this app!!
Thank you and keep up the good work
Can do better. 3/5
It’s a good app. But it can do better by searching for people in different locations/ mileage from your location. Cause I’m only get people 45miles away from me but I did get only one person close to me an it was my ugly next door neighbor. Where are the people that’s 5,10,15,20 miles from me??? Why 45miles an up??.. it can also do better without fake profiles .have people take a pic with their username on a paper . That would be valid to indicate that people is real .
Good start— my suggestions 3/5
By Sweet T💋
Okay coming from a black woman who is only interested in black men... this is the app I have been WAITING for! I have wanted an app like this for the longest. So for that I appreciate you so much, because I only find my men attractive so it’s good to see my Kings on here with me....... now as far as everything else is concerned. Please allow us to show our location, and for us to see theirs as well. Worst thing in the world is to be having a great conversation and then finding out they are in a completely different state. I will chalk that up to this being new. Also I think we should more characters to speak, some people have more to say than others. You should also provide a back/reverse feature just in case we swiped right or left on someone we didn’t want to. Other than it being very vague at times, and a lot of people haven’t discovered this beauty I think it will go over well. Can’t wait to see the improvements
It’s not exclusively blk anymore my only problem 5/5
By Sensational suavehouse
App is great but I’m starting to see more Hispanic and white women on this app even Asian I liked the idea where this app was exclusively for black ppl but now that it’s getting multi racial it’s kinda tainting the element of what this app was originally created for not that it’s much of a problem but every time we created something for “US” everyone else jumps aboard but I could’ve sworn everyone hates “blk”ppl so what’s they’re purpose for being on the app?it can’t be blk love in peace that’s my only grief which isn’t much of a problem because I get plenty of matches and this seems to be the most decent app so far o give it 5 stars a lot of beautiful sistas and I’m overwhelmed by the love o want this app to succeed just don’t want it to lose its “soul”like hip hop and other forms of our culture that’s been bombarded by everyone else by that this app can potentially became a black planet and you seen what happen with that I just don’t understand one minute we monsters but you wanna have sexual relations with a monster?i just know most intentions on this app isn’t sincere but if it stayed exclusive to us there’s better results and connections I just realize the power of black love doesn’t mean I’m racist but each is own maybe just my opinion great app by the way love it so far keep making updates and make this app the best in the likes of pof and tinder it can happen if we work together as a unit love is love...one
Great App 5/5
Pretty much cut and dry right swipe yes, swipe left not interested. Finally a app that gives the woman the courage to message first. Instead of guys having to send 3000 messages to be notice by maybe 6. Cheers
Messaging never works 1/5
The messaging portion never works. I deleted my Facebook profile and used the phone number profile because it would always tell me there was a connectivity issue even if my connection is just fine. Now the same problem is happening with my new profile and I can’t see my messages again. I like the concept but the constant bugs are seriously annoying
