Identifying a Chinese Dating App Worth Trying

There are both good and bad Chinese dating apps. Some make exploring that international dating niche an exiting experience while others just waste your time and money. The challenge is deciphering which ones to try. Below are a few things to look for when sorting the good from the compromised. Doing so is easy when you know what to look for. 

Detailed Profiles 

Every good Chinese dating app will have detailed user profiles. Oftentimes, app developers cut corners since applications have a reputation for being used to find hookups. Fortunately, applications worth using ensure to pack as much information into profiles as possible. This usually includes a person’s username, location, an ‘About Me’ section, specifics concerning physical appearance and oftentimes, feature an interests and hobbies section. Keep in mind that every app will not include all the information mentioned but should cover the basics. The idea behind detailed profiles is helping users gauge compatibility and determine who possesses the traits they’re looking for. 

An Array of Features 

A Chinese dating app worth downloading is usually heavy on features to enhance user experience. Most of these will be either communication features and those that enhance user visibility to promote account activity. There are the basics like a reliable messenger, filtering, search capabilities, and virtual gifts as well as advanced features like translation services. Yes, some of the best apps have a translation feature that translates messages sent and received so any language barrier is no longer an issue. Additionally, most of the top apps have a list of special features that can be unlocked with tokens or other in app currency.

Speedy Registration

Most apps worth downloading also have a fast registration process. Users can often register by logging in with their Facebook account, other social networking accounts or by entering an email address, creating a password and a username. Apps that let users connect through Facebook or another account have the added benefit of being able to transfer information from your account to save time. The purpose of this is convenience and ease. On an app, users want the signup process to be quick so they can start connecting with other singles. 

User Friendly Interface

An app worth using must have a user-friendly interface. It needs a good layout, clear icons, clear text and so on. There is nothing more frustrating than signing up, gaining access to all the app has to offer and not knowing what to do next. Fortunately, this is not an issue for most applications on the market and the ‘Help’ or ‘FAQ’ pages are there to answer any common questions.

Large User Base

A large user base indicates that an app is trustworthy. When an application is successful, it draws in the numbers. It is as simple as that. You can find this information on the details page of each application you’re considering. While you’re there, also look at the number of reviews. An app with thousands of positive reviews is often a winner. 

Upfront Pricing

This is one aspect of Chinese dating apps that separate the legitimate ones from the scams. A trustworthy app should have a pricing structure that members can easily access. This is usually in the form of membership levels or packages. Prices vary but watch out for those with cost per message pricing and any similar structure. This is a major indicator of an app only interested in taking your money. In other words, it is unlikely that you will meet or build a real relationship with anyone since the profiles are probably fake. 

Clear Cancellation Policy

In addition to pricing, make sure to read the app’s cancellation policy and forget about the app if the policy isn’t clear. This is where subscribers often run into trouble. They enter their payment information, become a paid member of an app and later want to cancel but don’t know how. In other cases, users successfully cancel and then notice unexpected charges which are usually a result of having automatic renewal turned on. Save yourself the trouble by reading the policy to avoid any surprises. On most apps, members can unsubscribe at any time, the membership runs its course (it is usually monthly) and then there are no further charges. 
Now that you know what to look for, go find an app you want to try. You never know who you might meet. Good luck!
