It made a nice change to have lots of information about people including little quirky details, and you can actually specify details such as the height range of the people you're shown.The app claims to learn your tastes too, although it seems rare to start conversations.
It’s super quick to join – you simply upload some photos and an optional bio, set your age and distance preferences, and away you go, swiping left or right on potential suitors.

When signing up, you have to verify your profile in one of various ways, for example by sending a selfie mimicking a certain pose, which hopefully limits scammers too.
Unfortunately there’s no way of searching by time or location so if you don’t go on the app straight away you may never be able to find that cute girl from Pret – in a big city you cross paths with so many people every day, so Happn can be a bit overwhelming. Match: Free app but membership costs £29.99 for one month Match feels like a step-up from the more casual dating apps in that the sign-up process takes a while and membership isn’t free – £29.99 for one month seems expensive, but the price per month decreases significantly if you sign up for longer (if you sign up for six months, it equates to £12.99 a month).
Perhaps because they’re paying, people on the app definitely treat it more seriously.
