Zoosk - Sell More 1/5
Zoosk started out great but quickly started throttling the replies from people I had already connected with. The idea is to get you to upgrade to premium messaging which is another $10 per month.
If you don’t sign up, they throttle the entire service, severely limiting activity.
I’ve decided to join another online site with much better reviews.
Fairly Good Expierence 4/5
I found a real live friend for life. I met a few fake people as well. But thankful that I met someone out of my everyday circle. Dating App is really not ever something I thought I would do but really wanted to meet someone with some similar likes in life and close to my age. We share the same birthday and just a year apart. I had a good experience. If I could encourage anyone question everyone till you know the truth of who they are in life. I pray you can find the love of your life and be happy forever.
Can’t message people! 1/5
Can’t message people even though I purchased the membership. Really freaking annoying. I read on the online forum it’s been happening to a lot of people. iPhone user. Shotty app!
Any reviews with 4 or 5 stars are fake. This app is awful. It almost never updates and has TONS of glitches. And like most dating apps, there are hardly any active users. The 4.3 star rating is manufactured by fake reviews. Customer service is useless.
One word 1/5
DONT DOWNLOAD THIS APP! 1/5
By APP IS TRASH71426
Don’t download this app or any app like it this app. taking your money when you get the subscription and you still can’t get unlimited messages after I just paid for the subscription and brought the messaging upgrade and nothing it tells me I have hit my daily limit that’s BOGUS and they should get sued it’s that ridiculous I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP AT ALL I give the app 0 stars because the app just sucked all the way around.
Designed to Nickel & Dime you NOT get you a match 1/5
This is the worst of them all. Cumbersome exploring modes. It’s really hard to find new profiles. I don’t want to keep seeing people I’m not interested in or are too far away. You cant tell who is a member that can respond to you and you have to pay extra for features like letting a non-paying members reply. Better off with a month to month subscription. The “Online now” feature has no one Remotely close and no sorting options. Features other paid dating apps have and include this does not. You need to pay extra. Becomes expensive and a waste of time. I did 6 months and want a refund after less than a week.
Free is a joke 1/5
They advertise that the app is free to use but if you want to use the message feature you have to pay money. Why do they falsely advertise this ? It’s not one of those free dating apps. It’s like E-Harmony you have to pay do that as well. Until they let you message for free I’m giving it a one star. I’ll rate 5 stars when you can message for free.
No easy cancel 1/5
By Brian Michael Gilb
They require you to mail… that’s right, snail mail your cancelation request to a physical address. Don’t use this app because it’s a data mining venture.
No surprise that the app is devoid of bots and people linking their only fans account.
Not a single free feature 1/5
By Josiah Miles
Want an app that tries to make money off features that are free on every single other dating app? Want to be shown the same people everyday with a line up that never changes? This app is perfect for you! Not only do they charge for their “SmartPicks” feature that’s identical to Tinder and Hinge’s “Top Picks” section that gives you a free use periodically, but they also make sure you don’t miss out on someone you scrolled over by showing you the same people every single day! Score! And if that wasn’t enough, they’ll make sure to ruin your profile by unnecessary cropping your photos and requiring you to check on them every hour to readjust them! How thoughtful! If I could make a list of best to worst dating apps, this would make last place by a landslide. Only free feature on here is unlimited likes, which is useless considering you’ll run over every single possible match you’ll get to see on here in an hour, and then just get to repeatedly scroll those same people for the rest of the time you have the app. Honestly I couldn’t wait to buy the smartpicks feature knowing you probably threw in people ive already sent a like to, and Ive already came across 7 times before. This app has so much fixing to be done, it’s a complete waste of memory on your phone.
Too expensive 3/5
First of all, I’d like to start by saying that this app has potential. It’s pretty user friendly and easy to navigate. However, you shouldn’t have to pay a subscription to message people and see what they’re saying. At least let there be limited messaging per day, like maybe 20 free messages a day, and then have you subscribe for any extra. Also, $60 for 3 months is borderline robbery. It’s ridiculous, especially since the 6 month package is only $70. Lower the subscription prices and maybe this would be a great app that everyone uses over the others and see as worth their time and money.
As a consumer advocate I’m here to warn you this is a highly unethical and unsafe app. Stick with Match or meet up groups. This is not a safe and professional environment.
Not worth your time 1/5
App is a ghost town plagued further bogged down by horrible features.
Ads are annoying and intrusive
Horrible and borderline scam 1/5
I think they send robo messages to you during the free trial to lure you into subscribing. Then nothing!!! You see the same people over and over and zero response to any messages you send - suggesting fake accounts. Don’t waste your money.
Pretty sure all the positive reviews are paid. 2/5
First off, the app interface is extremely abysmal. It’s just not appealing or user friendly at all.
What’s even worse is that in order to communicate with anyone, even if you both like each other, you have to pay for a subscription. So essentially this is akin to eharmony with less users and low quality interface.
Also, there’s ads which is ridiculous considering you literally can’t do anything besides like someone, unless you subscribe....
Oh and the subscription is 30$ a month !! Complete rip off.
It’s a work in progress. When you add filters it bypasses and gives you what the app wants….. also there it’s quite a bit of catfishing and I’m speaking from a female being catfished by men, might want to figure a way to verify the photos. I’m going to be positive and hopeful though that everyone is not a weirdo.
Fake profiles 1/5
So much fake profiles and scammers on app. Very disappointed.
Don’t waste your time. 1/5
This is a horribly designed app. And you need a desktop computer to deactivate your account. Sounds like a scam to be able to say they have a lot of users.
How did they do it? 1/5
I just got on the app for the first time in a month or two. SOMEHOW, despite what logic would tell you, they found a way to actually make the app even worse! The pop up ads every 3rd photo in carousel are a master stroke.
Unless you’re willing to pay, this app is useless. 2/5
Apparently, to talk to anyone (whether it’s responding or initiating a convo with a match), you have to pay. I’d rather stick to other dating apps that are free. Not worth it.
The worst 1/5
There’s no point in downloading a free app if you can’t do anything without subscribing to the service. “In app purchases” is very misleading.
Poor service by Zoosk 4/5
By please renew my account
I have been blocked by Zoosk. I have paid my fees but Zoosk continues to block me.
W can work this out now. Not in July.
Locations are lies 1/5
By JJ Bosetti Godsil
Interesting how this app is so obsessed with confirming every member’s info....except the member’s actual location. Getting tired of 25 miles away actually being 1045 miles. Somebody’s lying.
Messaging issues, site full of scammers 1/5
Others have already mentioned it, but the ‘pay to message’ feature is crap. Zoosk tried to nickel and dime you for every type of interaction. Additionally, Zoosk seems not to care about the proliferation of fake profiles and scammers. I paid for Premium Messaging and literally 100% of respondents to my messages immediately wanted to switch to WhatsApp or SMS (big red flag), often blaming Zoosk’s messaging subscription. I complied with the first few, to test the waters, and ended up with either obvious bots or scammers trying to get me into an sham investment scheme. I’m letting my subscription expire and will not renew.
They need to enable us to “delete” our account on this app instead of pausing or deactivating them. I’ve two accounts on this app and I would like to delete them.
So many fake profiles! 1/5
More than 90% of my “matches” here were fake profiles trying to set me up with their “cousin” and others for whom English is definitely not their first language (even though their profile shows they were born nearby). The other 10% were not quality matches. Don’t waste your time or money.
Don’t waste your time! 1/5
First of all, don’t waste your time! This app automatically connects you to ppl who never respond, or when they do, they proclaim they’re never on here to check their messages, or are seriously looking for someone. (why are you even on the app)There are several that have altered their pics, lied about their ages, and many are bots. I’ve tested my theory on this. Just do it the old fashioned way: “Get off the couch, go to a local community event (not a bar), put away the phone, and walk on over there to her and talk to her. Secondly, using this app had taught me that 60% of dating app profiles are fake. There are a few real ppl out there but here are 6 tactics I’ve learned using this app, along with other online research to determine my ratings:
1. Look for power words like Catholic, widowed, single and etc.
2. If you message multiple times and nobody responds. (Most ppl would find that annoying and respond with “Not interested” or “No Thanks,” or “Pass!”
3. Is their profile incomplete? (Are there holes in their storyline?”
4. Are there any errors in their spelling?
5. If they ask for sensitive information (contact or otherwise), or if they ask the questions to which you’ve already answered to, in your storyline “if” they actually bothered to read it.
6. (The one that sent up a 🚩 for me: “When chatting or connecting with them, does the distance they are currently residing at correspond with what google maps actually lists, and “if” you do get a contact number from them, run it through one of the many websites out there to confirm the area code given you, corresponds with the location they give you.
I used to believe in these but once I discovered how to use tip #6, #s 1-5 matched the criteria for a fake profile. 🧐 And “yes” you’re probably right! That’s probably why I’m single. But, if you’re going to search for a companion, you dang better know as much as you can about them first. Everyone wears a 😷 now, (sarcastic pun intended) in case you haven’t been paying attention. Jk lol
I did meet some real people on zoosk, but most of the profiles are either expired or fakes. The views are fake. You message people and they do not respond but keep viewing your profile for days. Then when your subscription expires you get a flood of notices that ALL these messages are waiting for you. All you have to do is subscribe. These scammers can shove.
Shady Garbage App 1/5
I don’t know how this app hasn’t been removed from the App Store for shady practices. You can pay a premium for a subscription and every little feature is an additional cost.
The interface is junk. The app constantly spams you (AFTER paying) with ridiculous up-sells for features other apps include in subscriptions or even for free in some cases.
I left for a couple months and came back because I have an active subscription…paid months ago, and now they won’t let me continue to use PAID FOR features unless I provide my phone number in too if everything they already have.
Fat freaking chance I’m giving this scam of an app even more personal information.
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Just awful! 1/5
They have found me the same hand picked “matches” for weeks now. The same people always come up on my feed, none of whom ever respond to a smile. I’m not buying into this at all! There is no one behind any of these pictures. Several scammers, though. The carousel is the biggest piece of crap ever! Congrats! We picked Natalie who lives 603 miles away for you! Good luck on ur first date! Literally met no one—not a single person. If I looked like a sucker fish, I’d understand that. But wow! Worthless!!
Terrible app 1/5
The smart pick feature provides no value. Tons of fake profiles and all these extra add ins to try and get you to spend more money. Tinder is way better albeit it’s a dinosaur
Advertised as free but you must pay to play 1/5
After it was all SSID and done to set up a profile- I couldn’t view them, open messages, etc. without a membership, which fir the quality was quite expensive. The stated rate was not what I was being charged. I was able to within two weeks delete the profile and get the refund. I expect better service for the money. Guess I’m ok’d fashioned. I do t think the potential dates are screened well as many seemed to be fake. The hits I received were no where near what I was looking for. Men looking for foreign dates maybe brides, a bit flaky if you ask me. I don’t recommend this site to anyone.
App will not work 1/5
By why dont you work app
I downloaded the app and paid the 30 bucks and it still keeps telling me to upload a picture every time I open the app
Do not download 1/5
Do not download this app.
Poor functionality 1/5
Looking for an app that is easy to setup and navigate. Well don’t look here. Unable to add pictures and create a profile that represents me. Also can’t login to the app after changing my password and it will not send me a recovery email. This after I just changed my password, not it’s been a while an I forgot it. I was frustrated once by the convoluted messaging and fake profiles ( which I read in a previous review) but thought I would give it a second chance. Needless to say I canceled my subscription because the app and tech solutions aren’t getting any better. Basically control, alt, delete. That didn’t work. Sorry Zoosk I not one to give reviews period, or even negative reviews.
Money scam add wall 1/5
They want you to pay and give you adds . I’m out
I can’t even make an in app purchase 1/5
I want to use the app, sometimes it doesn’t even open, most of the time it freezes, it won’t let me buy a membership, so I can not respond to a potential “friend”. Zoosk do you really want to make money because it doesn’t seem like you do???
Waste of time and money 1/5
Don’t waste your time or money. This app is a joke
Your app doesn’t work 1/5
I have been trying to deactivate my account for an hour and it keeps telling it can’t. I’m that’s the worst service from any dating app. Why do you make it so difficult to deactivate my account. This is the worst thing ever.
Waste of money 1/5
I paid for the app thinking the messages were real messages. I received a few really early and you have to pay to read them. Figured I’d give it a try. The messages aren’t from people that have viewed my page. The notifications of having connections don’t exist when you look. People aren’t super active on there it seems at least in my area. It sure looks like it at first but it wasn’t worth the money. I’m going to wind up deleting this app cause it’s just taking space on my phone.
I found my wife on zoosk 5/5
By Leaky muff
I met my wife in February 2020 on Zoosk. A moth later we were married! It sounds crazy but we both had love at first site! Now we have my first daughter on the way
There are better dating apps 1/5
By Matt Thew
Completing my 2nd, 6-month stretch on Zoosk with zero contacts versus over 60 with Bumble and 30 with Match. I strongly recommend not using Zoosk.
I thought tinder was trash. 1/5
But this is the real garbage.
Hard pass 1/5
I set this up, found I was too busy for dating, snoozed the account. The thing unpaused one early morning, and the app did not save my password. Multiple requests to reset password would not work after the account unpaused. Meanwhile, I am beginning to get emails that I cannot answer and a profile I just wanted to delete after twenty minutes of no movement on getting in. I just want my profile deleted at this point, so I have deleted the app hoping this removed my information. I wish I had just stuck to the swiping apps. Pass on this one. Tech issues are a headache especially first thing in the morning. Who knows how many users aren’t just trapped data ghosts. Good luck here. You will need it.
Can’t send messages without paying 1/5
Terrible “dating app”. Couldn’t send messages without paying. They data mined my information from Facebook then blocked me from sending messages unless I paid them. now I can’t delete the account. It’s says to go on a computer to deactivate but when I do it says some went wrong. Terrible.
I’m dissatisfied with this app. I’m on it half the time and to even have a chance you have to pay to even have a chance to meet some one. In the entire time I have had this app I have only had one date. That was 2 yrs ago and that was it. Like I said I am dissatisfied with the service of the app and having to pay I order to even have a chance.
Waste of time! You have to pay for everything! 1/5
By Shoe Shopoholic
I tried this app and paid the 9.99 for the month. But all you can do is view profiles. If you want to message or read a message from anyone. They want $29.99 a mont!! And to even reach out to members that's $79 bucks for 3 months! Freaking ridiculous! When I asked for my money back they just locked me out of my profile and wouldn't return my money. It's a sham!!!
The app is not as good as
Online which offers a choice to chat without having to send a smiley or heart.. however as with the app you get an”oops” which you can’t get out of and must go to search function and then go back in. Additionally if your searching and you go to views, when you go back to search it starts you back at the beginning not where you left off so you have to scroll through as many as 20-30 profiles to get back to where you were.. annoying. Lastly, how does the app show a verified profile pic that is too blurry to even we called a pic and how is it I could add myself without a pic and yet there are plenty with no profile pics? Anyway not a great app but some pretty great people on there
