No longer allows buying credits 2/5
This app used to allow you to purchase a set number of credits at a time. But in a shamefully greedy move, they now force you to purchase monthly subscriptions if you want more credits.
Always accidentally like or say hi to someone 3/5
The buttons for like or hi are placed in a way that even if you’re just swiping through someone’s profile, part of your hand will likely touch the the buttons and you’ll end up spending coins. So don’t buy coins.
Interesting concept but not feasible 1/5
You can cross paths with people but depending on where you live you might not come across many, especially if you’re not in an urban area.
Also, no one is checking this 24/7 as they go about their daily business. If you do happen to cross paths with someone then it usually goes to pass.
Third point is the occasional feature which pops up on their app, it has you click on 4 profiles to find out who liked your profile, only problem is if you guess correctly then they immediately match you with that person without consideration as to whether you liked their profile or not.
Interesting, fun 1/5
Like the idea of seeing people near you. Can't tell if the people show up at the moment or after a delay. Fact is, I've never seen in person any of the people listed at the time the were added.
[update] uh, the latest update isn't downloading my profile - I get an error.
Also, update aside, there seems to be an awful lot of attractive women - I wonder just how many are real...
New update (10/13/16): wow, great update. :p App now crashes on load every time. Completely unusable. Fail.
New update (3/14/18): App works fine now (has been for a while). But this new system is weird - after I like someone, they disappear, so how do I then use the "Say hi" with them once my hi's have replenished??
Too many ads. The new layout is terrible. 1/5
There are as many ads on this app as there are potential people to connect with. And, that’s not even counting the multiple pop-up ads that spring up every few minutes. I’m not opposed to an app trying to make money, but it feels like I’m opening an advertisement app which every now and then I might see a girl to connect with - instead of the exact opposite happening, which should be the case. More importantly, the new layout is terrible. This app is obviously trying to look more like tinder and bumble. The best thing about the old layout was that it did not look like those apps.
So, what this app has turned into is a Bumble/Tinder want-to-be with at least 20 times as many advertisements as either of those apps. Don’t waste your time.
Very Poor Redesign and Experience 1/5
I don’t have one positive thing to say after the redesign. It wasn’t a great app to begin with, but at least it was a fluid experience. With the redesign it’s ALL ads. You will see the same ad repeated up to 7 times even after you X it out. There are essentially no matches either showing that not many people use this app. I traveled from Lincoln Center down to Meatpacking, stayed there for 3 hours, returned home, and the next morning opened the app and it said I didn’t cross paths with anyone. Do not use unless you’re planning to pay and I’d highly suggest to not do that either. Very, very poor user experience.
The best walk in town 5/5
By julio paris
I’ve been using this app for quite a while and I will tell you, this is a good and safe way to meet people with the same interests
Suggestions for the developers 2/5
Suggestion for developers to allow people to play the game to guess who likes your profile without it actually matching you with the profile if you guess right. Also, having an incessant ad to play the game where people think they actually have a new potential match maybe does not encourage people to actually play the game. I had a bit of success after I had been using the app for a few weeks last year but that’s worn off. I really liked the idea of the app at first but I’m considering deleting and trying others as the matching has become obsolete. I have also accidentally like a persons profile one too many timed.
Stop the Facebook Logins 2/5
Another app that requires FB to use. Shame.
Nyc app bt its also able to become more useable if it use bye search name
Bring old UI back 2/5
New UI is very annoying. Now it feels like we sitting on Tinder. This UI is not the user friendly!!! You guys are heading towards becoming next Snapchat in terms of how everyone hate their new layout!!!
Tinder with weak location 3/5
The app does nothing to encourage people to actually write about themselves. Most profiles lack even the most basic information. Probably half are just empty. So all you have is a handful of photos of someone who probably passed within a mile of some place you have been while traveling down the freeway at 70mph. I get the idea. It would be cool to find people in to find real information about people in the same room or at least building. But this isn't it.
Terrible design 1/5
I use to subscribe to the premium service. The new design is blocky, glitchy, and very boring. You can use likes on the same person multiple times. I have the new version on one phone and the old on another phone. The old version only lets you like the same person once. The new one lets you once every 24 hours. It’s a way to get you to spend more money. Now happen feels like a crappy version of tinder. Happn will be deleted in 2 more weeks when my subscription expires.
they restored the grid view!!!
Poor redesign 2/5
Redesign is terrible, among other issues. Hopefully the developers see the writing on the wall and address it immediately
the crush game is depressing 3/5
"take a chance! 4 crushes, one match!" it should say "guaranteed the one you like never likes you!" i find this "game" extremely depressing and quickly learned to avoid "playing" it. like most dating apps, when you actually match no one makes a move, and if you do, people are flakey.
Pretty much all I’ve gotten out of this app is spammy notifications to get me to open the app, while nothing has happened and there are no new people around me.
I have had multiple ‘secret’ likes from people who never appeared on my timeline. Either we passed each other or we didn’t; I should be able to like them or not without having to subscribe to the paid service
Horrible new user experience 1/5
I used to enjoy using this app. But not anymore. The new redesign is horrible, and makes using this app pretty much impossible.
In the old version, you would see everyone you crossed paths with very easily. It was a good design. This new design is totally flawed and thoughtless, for two reasons.
For one, I live in a big city, and can cross paths with over 50 happn users a day. Some days it can be even more. The new scrolling feed of matches is impossible to scroll through completely. The functionality is horrible and not well tested. I’ve accidentally x’d our lots of potential matches I was attracted to.
The other reason, is the extreme high number of ads. The extreme number of ads make the free version of this app all but useless. It’s obvious you that whoever designed this, only did so only for monetization, and completely disregarded user experience.
Unless you plan on buying the premium subscription, I would avoid the free version. I work in digital media, and this app is so loaded with obtrusive ads, it makes the user experience totally awful and ruined a good thing.
With this new update; I predict Happn will lose a lot of users, very quickly.
There you go Happn. I could have charged you good money for that input. Hopefully you’ll see the advice from your users here, and right the ship quick, before they flee you for good.
Looks perfect.. 5/5
Thanks a lot to change the UI .. its look awesome..
Needs an update 3/5
For some reason, it’s hard to get messages going or meet someone in person from this app. I definitely don’t have problems on other apps and think I’m attractive. Maybe it can be updated in some way to facilitate that.
It's cool 5/5
Took a sec to navigate
By kirei kotomine
By Kim frim
You guys need to come up
With another way to sign up
Other than Facebook not everyone has Facebook (like me) so I can’t sign up and use the app otherwise.
Latest release no longer cross paths with people 1/5
I'm not sure what happened but the latest version of the app doesn't show anymore crossed paths. It's been over 3 days since I have crossed paths with anyone and I live in NYC. Customer support is terrible all they give you is a FAQ with no helpful information.
Garbage dating app 1/5
By To momma 98765
Worst app I’ve ever seen and to delete your profile you have to email customer service who acts like they can’t find your profile without providing them with detailed information. Scam bs site. Just stay away!!!
Buena app 1/5
By Al 60 V1
Una app con estilo!!
RUINED by the need to be BUMBLE 1/5
Great app, UNTIL the change made this month (February 2018) where it makes you vote on every person instead of being able to scroll through who you passed in a layout of 6 at a time.
Also the need to monetize is equally frustrating where you can’t like people, wait to match & then talk for free; but have to use money.
DEVELOPERS— PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK!!
I happily used it for 3 years and recommended to many. No longer!
Basically all prostitutes 1/5
In Dubai the app is basically all prostitutes. Needs some filter mechanism
iOS 11.2.5 iPhone 8 bug with 8.0.6 update 2/5
Just deleted and reinstalled but no new cuties have loaded in about 2-3 days, thanks.
(Edit) Also, location seems to be working since I’m still receiving “_ # of people secretly liked you!” notifications.
Not inclusive 1/5
I’m nonbinary and my Facebook reflects that, but the app does not support the very Facebook functionality it is built around. It fails to work properly if you don’t use one of the traditional binary gender options on Facebook, and there is no way to fix this in app. I can’t help but be reminded of the major lawsuit against several major dating sites just over a year or so ago over lacking inclusive options in searching for a partner. Completely unacceptable.
Last Happen update was terrible!!! 1/5
Before you could just scroll down and see everyone that you passed by...
Now you need to go one by one!!!
Very VERY BAD IDEA!!! Yes, now I can see better the mainly profile photo but it takes forever to see or find everyone!!!
Terrible idea... You should “fire” the app developer that created this update!!!
Bad app with real poor results after years of use 1/5
The app is a concept that (in theory) could have worked. In its implementation and application over the years, it has fallen flat on its face with zero positive results in every single way.
There is no GPS location link in this app that helps any user find a person where they are or nearby in the moment you're there. It does not work in real time, so you may find out someone might have been near where you were a day ago, but that's the soonest it may happen.
You don't know who might like you unless you also like them. So, finding out if someone is into you is nearly impossible unless they like you first. The process is rediculous and a complete waste of time. After investing money into the credit system quite a few times over the years, I can definitely say it's also a waste of money.
Completely ruined the app with latest update 1/5
Awful new interface. Now it’s just like every other app but you scroll instead. You broke it.
Rip off! 1/5
Used to at least be able to send “hi” to someone for free. Now, you have to be a paid subscriber to do so. If OKC can manage to still remain free, there’s no reason for this to require a paid subscription just to send a “hi” to someone.
New layout 2/5
By RPG Guy111
Seriously, does the same person that formatted the new SnapChat layout work for you? It’s not nearly as bad, but pretty close.
The new design is terrible 1/5
By P ELL
What were they thinking!! It’s a huge step backward in usability. Change it back!
Good concept but spammy 2/5
I keep getting spam alerts from the app, I can’t turn these off without turning off the notifications about actual matches.
I’ll probably delete it, shame as it’s a good concept.
New design is seriously flawed 1/5
In a place like NYC, you cross paths with 1000s of people. It was previously possible to see the photos of many people at once - a welcome difference from Tinder/Bumble. You now see them one at a time. This makes the app absolutely useless given its cross-paths concept (nobody has time to individually browse thousands of profiles). Please (!) return the thumbnail view of profiles you had before.
New layout horrible 1/5
The new layout is horrible and it's too hard to see who you've crossed paths with before and since when you get a new potential match. Bring back the old layout. And fix the ads and slowness of the app.
Chill with the notifications 2/5
Happn is a decent app but they have gone way overboard with their notifications lately. I dont need a notification every time someone visits my profile. Rating this version 2 stars and silencing all happn notifications for now. Will revisit in the future and hopefully it will be less of a nag.
By Addie Summer
Received a notification from happn. This app has kept loading for a long time. And I can’t open my message. Pls fix it !!!
After update, app doesn’t work 1/5
The new update doesn’t let app load. It just keeps saying loading for couple of minutes. Please fix.
Not working 5/5
Today the app isn’t working
I had received an notification, but I'm not able to see the message,, and it keep on loading,
Utterly broken. Complete waste of time. Deleted.
Does not work 1/5
By gabriel h s
Doesn’t work. And I am not talking about finding people, the app itself just simply crashes all the time
Crushtime Notifications irritating 1/5
There is no reason to have a daily crushtime notification, it is Incredibly annoying and it is countereffective as it leads me to avoid checking the app.
Updated review: still too many bugs!!! 3/5
Your “brilliant team of engineers” screwed up the app in the latest update. The app immediately crashes when you click on a profile.
Shows a map of where you crossed paths to strangers 3/5
I was horrified when a weird freak that liked me on this app was able to see where we crossed paths on a map! This was the street of my home address! If I am seen walking my dog, I can now be stalked. Thanks happn. You should not include maps of peoples’ home address to anyone out there. Perhaps give user option to not allow this to be shown.
