Human beings crave love and connection, and the internet is just another conduit that has made it easier, faster and cheaper for humans all over the world to connect and find soul mates and partners. It should therefore not come as a surprise to find out that there are many internet websites and mobile apps that have been created to make the process of finding a love interest or a friend to connect with faster and more gratifying.
Plenty Of Fish is an Internet Company that has specialized in the dating game. Their latest mobile app, the POF dating app is a simple and easy to use mobile application that is perfect for those who are technologically challenged.
The first step will involve you creating an account, which is relatively easy. All that you have to do is to answer a series of questions that will be used to build your profile so that you can meet and connect with other people on the dating site app.
The POF app has a powerful search function that allows any user to specify the kind of qualities they are looking for, down to the last tiny, unique detail that they may have in mind. For example, you can search for people who are close to your location (though the app never reveals your location). It is also possible to add other parameters to the search, such as name, age, height and last activity on the site. There is a ‘Meet Me’ option that also allows you to quickly flip through profiles and choose those that interest you while ignoring the rest, similar to how Tinder operates.
The POF dating app is available on both Android and iOS mobile platforms and their supported devices. POF is free to use. This means that you can browse, find and chat with other members for free. It is also possible to organize a date night without paying a single cent. There is a premium option for members who might want more functionality added to their account. For instance, with a premium account, a user can know when their emails have been opened and read by the recipient, add more images to their profiles and also get the chance to show up first on the ‘Meet me’ feature.
Pros and cons
Some of the key pros of the POF dating app include:
- Flexibility, seeing that you can set up and use your account online, as a dating app or both
- There is a date night feature that allows you to set up dates with interested people every week
- There is a relationship needs assessment that will be used by POF to show you members who fit your needs
The only con with using the POF dating app is that you might encounter a few adverts if you are using the free account.
