Upward: Christian Dating App app reviews

  • Scammers 1/5

    By Sexy boleg
    I read reviews before downloading this app. They have great views and high ratings and I don’t know why. The only I gave them an rating is becauseI has no choice. I honestly want a refund! Two out of the three guys I engaged in serious conversation were on a so called secret mission in Turkey. As the conversation proceeded with one he then changed his location to Chad but the time gap never stayed consistent. I’ve been on quite a few dating sites and for this to be a religious one has honestly been the worst app of all! I’m very disappointed.
  • Pay to play. 1/5

    At least tinder doesn’t completely lock you out of the system and turns adds off once you make a purchase.
  • Spam!! 1/5

    By 62)?:!:!:&83!:82!:!:&
    Be careful this app have a lot of spams!
  • Nothing but scammers 1/5

    By Thy Child of God
    This is a joke!!! Everyone is so far away no one even close to me and the one’s that I chatted with… well ever single one of them were fake.. waste of money and energy and it’s sad because they’re using the lord
  • Believe the one stars 1/5

    By reader2087
    This has to be the absolute worst app I have ever tried. The amount of blatant scammers is the worst and yeah good luck getting any contact from support over issues. Or trying to get your money back.
  • Don’t pay for it 1/5

    By Blubble Buster
    Until they can get rid of the fake, scammer accounts, it will never be worth the money. I’ll be deleting this app until they start verifying. Waste of time.
  • My latter was greater than my former 2/5

    By Kianalwr
    I responded to a guy from my message and there was great convo in the app. After some time we exchanged numbers and began convo on the phone. After almost two months on the, phone I asked if we could FaceTime and when he agreed it was an animated video recording. Now, at first I didn’t until stand then realized I was being catfished. I end everything on the spot. There is a lot more here moving on. I reported this incident yo the app mangers as some after I keep seeing the same name and profile pic in circulations and the person kept liking my profile! The same profile pic with a different name was making round in the app and my daily likes. Then the name spelled the some with different profile pics started circulating. I never received any work from the app support team. Nothing was done. I deleted the app and everything as I didn’t feel, heard, or safe. After some time I returned to the app when I learned something’s had changed. It didn’t take long to receive messages and likes and all but maybe three of them were sex crazed men who wanted to send pics of let’s say not there faces. Just when I had planned to delete the app a second time at the begging of the year a “super like” changed my life! I met a man after God’s own heart. God heard my heart and sent joy and peace into my life! We have been dating almost a year and most recently he has made it clear of his intentions for next year. Until then we are rocking steady. My experiences with this app my not be typical or expected but I’m pleased with the end result. Oh I deleted the app a week later in January of 22.
  • Distance/ filter bugs - major issues 3/5

    By kdjfdj
    The app is decent on its’ face but the filtering needs some serious help. In short- when filtering, options list from 10-100 miles but every single person that it comes up with is greater than 100 miles (usually around 400-1000 miles). I live in the middle of Georgia/ shouldn’t be that hard to find someone and, as a premium subscriber, you should be able to filter this to ONLY those within such a distance. Second, again as a premium subscriber, one should be able to filter ANY filters- not just 3 at a time. Christians are, and should be able to be, picky about finding a qualified mate- not wanting an alcoholic smoker that is liberal shouldn’t be the end of the rope for filtering matches. I should be able to choose every single thing I want to filter by. Lastly- find a way to filter based upon RECENT logins. Some users I’ve found haven’t been on for over a year. This wastes a ton of time on our end and server space on your end (App managers).
  • Please fix the distance issue of your apps! 3/5

    By legendaryJC6
    Affinity Apps, LLC, the developers of this app and other dating apps like Chispa are the worst when it comes to the distance filter. What is the point of having a distance filter if you’re gonna show me people 200+ miles away? Don’t give me that “we search for people outside your distance after you run out of people in your area” excuse because a few minutes later after re-opening the app, I see a few people nearby. This is a popular dating app, I know there’s more people around. Even less popular apps have more people nearby. Affinity Apps keeps saying “you asked and we listened, we fixed the distance issue” but it is still there. You are not earning trust of your users. Their apps are decent but the distance just breaks the camels back. PLEASE FIX THE DISTANCE FILTER!
  • Let us filter by race 2/5

    By Forte e'Gentile
    Its not racist but listen we all have types. I prefer to just see the types I like vs having to swipe left on all the others. This app has potential however you should add some tools to narrow your search. Adding filter options based on lets say Ethnicity,Political,Education etc would create a higher level of quality match's. I get the app is new so you want to maximize on matchs however if the matchs I am getting or being presented arent someone I am interested in whats the point? Add those filters and I think yo’ll be on the start of gaining more traction. All the “big guys” do it so its something to consider.
  • Bad app 1/5

    By Logan AW
    Bad app all satan’s tricks and sex pictures
  • Distance 3/5

    By Sentinall Prime
    I really don’t understand why there’s an option to set distance if it doesn’t do anything. I try setting it to 60 and I still get people who are 200-300 miles away. I would consider going for premium if they fix the distance thing.
  • FILLED with Scammers 1/5

    By SDBreezy
    Pics of guys in the Military, poor grammar, random phone numbers, don’t know where any of the military bases are at or the specific branches in town. Be careful. Ridiculous.
  • 👎🏾 1/5

    By Sadi8$7
    For a Christian app; it feels like their entire concept is based on getting them money. It is so hard to make a genuine connection because you are left swiping all day. You can’t see who likes you and the price is just a bit too much. The concept for it being for Christian is amazing but everything else is just not worth it.
  • Females - Stay away! Christian or not 1/5

    By Purely Fake 1244
    This site has no photo or location verification in any form. The men are predators for the most part and they are not Christian. If you want men asking for your address and to send nude pic’s, I guess go for it.
  • Bug Fix make app not work 2/5

    By c g eS hrzbgrn dhav Bf
    The new fix on 9/29/22 made me log out and will not allow me to log back in with my mobile number. Not a bad review just hoping this gets read by the developers.
  • Super like feature incredibly annoying 2/5

    By stevosreview
    It’s forced. You open the app and swipe right and it stops you and tells you you have to super like or cancel. Like why am I forced to say no just to like someone. I have to hold my ljone with two hands to use this app. Ridiculous.
  • Fake advertisement 1/5

    By 06181990
    Why does this app cost? On the internet it say free app so the is false advertisement. It doesn’t even give you a free trial. I will be upset to pay $30 and I end up not liking it. I’m not happy with this app at all. I can’t see anything.
  • Un-useable 1/5

    By Buriedinkeychains
    I tried creating a profile, but the gigantic “continue” button was always above whatever info I needed to add, and it wouldn’t let me scroll the page to see what I was writing. I can’t accurately type blind on my phone keypad, so I just deleted the app. One star is too much. I’ve never tried to use a more poorly designed app.
  • Please do something about the scammers 4/5

    By Ghofer
    I’d love to pay for your product but half the time I do it ends up being scam accounts.
  • You got to be kidding me 1/5

    By vandalyn
    I got a notification saying “find you a prayer or maybe more 🤭” my relationship with God is not to mocked and I don’t think the creator truly has a heart to match real Christian’s together. They need to take a step back and reevaluate the purpose of this app
  • Totally hate it! 1/5

    By ...survivor...
    The fact you have to pay for anything. Just another money making dating app that only cares about money with fake profiles. I though Christian app, hey maybe it won’t all about making money…wrong!
  • Ridiculous 3/5

    By H.S8493838;:8
    Despite setting the max distance to 50 miles away, it will only show you people from 200-300 miles away. Completely waste of time.
  • Not impressed 2/5

    By Upper_Bama
    Every message I’ve received so far, is someone wanting to lead me to another site to chat. Do a better job filtering through the scammers. Make everyone pay or find better ways verifying people. So far, it’s been a waist of money!!
  • DO NOT GET THIS APP 1/5

    By Nettynett
    I am completely disappointed in this app. You cannot see who likes you until you pay. Ok I pay, but I still cannot see anything. I only paid to “boost” my likes. If I want to see I have to pay more👀. To call this a “christian dating app” is disappointing. I can get on hinge for free and find Christian’s.
  • Filters are not accurate 1/5

    By Nu_23
    The filters are horrible on this app. Constantly showing people that are 200 or 300 miles away and people that are in their 40s/50s no matter what filter settings you choose.
  • Christian? Really? LOL 1/5

    By Kateykrushtheinstagramaddict
    You claim to be a “Christian App” while having stickers like “Netflix and Chill” as an option for a profile. Please tell me how this is reflective of a Christian lifestyle. Ladies please save yourself the trouble and go find a TRUE man of God in church serving. Not on an app where you truly have no idea who you are talking to. I had so many “men of God” say inappropriate things to me on this app. Absolutely a joke. If I could give it no stars, I would.
  • Coast 1/5

    By Cheewe
    It would be worth it if you didn’t have to pay
  • Subscription 1/5

    By lessiebs
    I didn’t like the fact that I had to select elite to be able to see the individual.😡
  • Julian 1/5

    By nickherlover69
    I don’t understand about the pay to see the person u want to meet change it to free to see 😡😡😡😡😡
  • Needs more features 3/5

    By BGüb
    I don’t like the fact that I can’t see or message people I’ve liked. I’ve been on the app for what feels like forever waiting on a mutual swipe so we can chat. I think I could start a connection if I could have messaged someone, but I can’t even go back to that profile to see if I could find him on social media. Also, just putting my faith statement is not enough. Can’t there be more places for information like Tinder or other apps? And the stickers are very limited so I can’t really convey myself as well. —Forever waiting to see if that *one* guy will swipe on me so I can see his profile again!
  • Refund me my money 1/5

    By cindy2145
    This app out of nowhere banned my account, and isn’t replying back to my emails. This wouldn’t be a problem if I hadn’t spent the $30 getting the elite membership. So since they want to ignore my emails, I’m leaving this review demanding a refund.
  • Very bad 1/5

    By ben7591
    None of it worked well, thought it would be a good idea until nothing worked right.
  • Not sure how this got good ratings 1/5

    By 0allothernamestaken
    Every single man I came in contact with on this app was a scammer, it was unbelievable. I always assumed the scammers tried the men not to be the men??
  • Scary scammers 1/5

    By lost_in_my_virtues
    Someone messaged me on my WhatsApp without me giving them any information about my WhatsApp or even telling them I had WhatsApp.
  • It’s okay not the best . Waste of money and energy 3/5

    By Im_2_noble
    They will duplicate peoples profiles on your “see who likes you” so it makes it seem like you have a bunch so when you do buy they are the same profiles duplicated over and over. SCAM if you ask me. Another thing thats weird is women i’m interested in show low interest or usually don’t respond back. All in all i think this is a is a waste and I will be praying and waiting on the Lord from here on out.
  • Anyone here? 2/5

    By seriously?! i need a nickname?
    Doesn’t display anyone near me. I can’t see what I’m typing right now . The text is white on a white background. It’s too touchy. I try scrolling down someone’s profile, and it’ll swipe them away. Can’t see what I’m typing like I said. So hop this makes sense
  • Not Enough People 2/5

    By JessieSun9
    This app is very easy to use which is nice, but it is constantly putting ads in your face to “upgrade” and stuff like that. Or talking about how many people like you, but you can’t see it. Not to mention there’s not really enough people so sometimes I scroll by someone I’ve X’d before. Also not a great selection, I would say out of 100 people I might possibly swipe right on 1 👀
  • Has potential, it can be better 2/5

    By 1TamFan1220
    The app is yes user friendly, and lets you navigate through different functions with ease. I’ve used it before and am considering returning. Things that would FOR SURE improve an guarantee my return but even recommendations to friends, please consider the following: To see “all of your likes at once” requires an upgrade to premium. How about allowing a basic package that lets you engage with 1 person at a time free, even if for 7-14 days (like other apps). All you can do is create a profile and send likes, or unlike. I’ve used this app before there’s more than a few fake/scam profiles. I had “likes” from the SAME person all DIFFERENT names/age/location/occupation. It was obvious it was fake and my “suggestions” or “likes you” had more fake profiles than genuine people. The people who were real, weren’t even within “my preferences.” Example, I set up age preferences, and still was being suggested people old enough to be my parent, all while paying to use the app. I was basically paying to weed out scammers and sift through the waves of profiles that aren’t at all matching preferences. Charge way less or go free and allow for a basic version that is free. This app has features I do like over other apps, but I’d rather use other apps first. Other apps let you at least have some kind of connection before requiring payments. My opinion, if your going to charge people do do anything, FULLY verify the profiles, and let the “suggestions” actually make sense. There’s nothing worse than setting up age preferences and still being flooded with “likes” from people old enough to be my parent. Currently using a competitors app while thinking about if I want to pay to revisit this experience again.
  • Worked fine 2/5

    By Warriorfirefly
    Not a bad app, was having some nice conversations until it logged me out and said my account got disabled. Wouldn’t let me email anyone either. Had the app for like 2 days. Oh well.
  • Y’all fault 1/5

    By MT resatens
    You really need to check your people on that app thanks to that person I’m not allow to be on your app anymore your company should fix the problem
  • Started ok but keeps getting worse… 1/5

    By DylanR2015
    It’s basically a Christian Tinder…often with more of the Tinder aspects than would be good. You do meet some people but there really isn’t enough of a user base so quickly users are from 150+ miles away. After about a week of minimal swiping you’ll get back to square one being shown the same people again. You can tell it to only show you people in a range but they never adhere to that range. They force you to accept seeing people outside of that distance. There is no definite block to only see people in an area. They also weirdly don’t show people closest first. It’s completely random orders. The notifications have to be the worst part…half the notifications are just trying to get you back to the app literally…”(insert catchy phrase to get you back to swiping)” that’s not a filler that’s nearly word for word what some notifications say. One or two times it’s funny but regularly multiple times a day those and worse notifs get annoying. They also often will send out fake matches and likes and liked numbers. In the see who likes you paid part it’s shown me a number then I’d go into it and it’s at least 10-20% lower number usually. Then occasionally there’s a “You have a Match with ****!” Or “Somebody new likes you!” and there’s nothing there.
  • Amazing app 5/5

    By Oliver7n8
    Easy and free to use , lots of amazing Christians
  • Catfishers galore!! 1/5

    By catfishers galore
    Beware!! There are a lot of catfishers on this sight!!! I have been on this platform for less than a week and I have had 4 encounters with them!!!
  • It’s alright. 3/5

    By Chris V 27
    I do like this app but every time I update my distance preference to under 40 miles, I still get profiles from more than 300 even 600
  • Great 3/5

    By johnathon Rubio
    Upward is great for Christian single’s however I have a hard time believing I’m the only one on the app within 450 miles of my location! Also hinge will always be superior as long as they aren’t charging us to see our likes people shouldn’t have to pay to try and find love
  • Worst app and service 1/5

    By slothboy25
    They nickel and dime you for every little thing. The initial questions are very shallow; how can you have a compatible match with no data. NOT WORTH IT
  • Scam 1/5

    By rdutch68
    All the men that I talked to couldn’t even string together a complete coherent sentence. Wanted to meet me or exchange numbers right away. Can’t believe I actually paid for a month just to see people who liked me. All of the “Christian” dating sites I’ve tried are a huge disappointment. And the only reason I gave it one star was because no stars was not an option.
