Customer Reviews

  • Good


    Works great but needs an online now search feature and a block user feature.

  • Great app

    by DiannaDZ

    A few tweaks and it would be a 5.

  • The best dating site!!

    by PR-NYC

    POF is the best dating site!!

  • Great app

    by Hard Krome

    Much better then AIY on Facebook !!

  • Simple issue

    by Simple issue

    Most of my matches tend to be 20 something miles away. That's ok. The issue is most of them also only accept messages from people closer to them. I think if that's the case they shouldn't be available in my match list. It makes no sense to show me their profile, get me interested, then tell me I can't talk to them.

  • Great!!!!!

    by Tony yayo101

    Started off a little ruff but I met my soulmate off here thanks alot guys.

  • Like it

    by Lcncanton

  • POF

    by Bobbers83

    My problem is the alert badge that doesn't go way after I have cleared my messages. That I find annoying.

  • Photos upload incorrectly

    by composingkeys

    Photo uploads end up sideways when they are taken vertical! Very annoying. All other features seem to be working.

  • Fun app

    by Dougie_phresh

    Neat, and flattering :)

  • Ehh.

    by Moe-Moe1

  • Excellent

    by JimmieDiane

    Very easy site to move around all. There's plenty of nice people to choose and POF does pretty good coming up with matches!

  • Great app just some issues

    by Heath Snodgrass

    The app says I still have a notification and when I pull up the app these nothing new.

  • Great App!!

    by Theflyest1

    Thank you!

  • Pof review

    by C.Jjj

    It's not as easy to use as the desktop version, but it works

  • The badge

    by DevMoBo

    I do not like the "permanent" notification on my badge. If I get a notification and open the app to check it, then the notification in my badge should come off. But it stays on my badge. It keeps showing that I have a new message when actually don't. I don't like that.

  • Message not delivered

    by hatethispart

    Lot of times messages won't delivered and bounced back to mailbox


    by pryvasee

    why does this dumb app have so many bugs that are so simple to fix yet pof does nothing to fix them. I'm deleting and reinstalling this app and if it doesn't work I'm deleting it for good. nothing but nut job girls, liars & cheaters on here anyways..

  • Boring

    by Mstryn13

    Very boring & dead

  • Not great

    by Dr. J Swizzle

    I'm new to online dating and joining this site made me realize I wasn't missing anything. I guess it's good for entertainment purposes.

  • Terrible

    by Victorceja90

    Doesn't work after signing up, it crashed and won't let me log back in. Use another app instead.

  • Nobody responds to messages

    by Tns2

    I mean NOBODY and I wrote plenty of interesting looking females so I assume that they are fake or planted profiles just to make the site look good...crappy app id suggest using meetme or some other alternative seriously this app should be called plenty of CATFISH...

  • Poor

    by Lifearbiter

    I've been on other sites and apps and they function better than this and are simpler.

  • Can't sign in

    by Joelchke

    Created account several different times confirmed and unable to login. Sent an email received nothing back. Worst app Ever.

  • It doesn't help


    To many bugs it saids I have a nofication and I open I got nothing

  • Missing Profiles

    by The Spamfather

    POF has a horrible history of completely erasing your profile for no reason. They don't reply and they don't tell you why. And if they do it's vague and completely irrelevant to you. Whoever runs this is doing a disservice to the folks that join to meet a special someone for whatever reason it may be that absolutely is nobody else's business. Answer your customers and enough with erasing peoples profiles.

  • Badge won't go away

    by Jeff C N.

    No matter what I do or click on, the red "1" button will not go away. After all notifications have been looked at and cleared, there's always that "1" there.

  • Females on this site

    by Suavetone

    Are very rude. They are picky and they dont want a good guy

  • Update fail

    by TheGuyOtter

    I would give negative if I could! I can understand that glitches happen with a update roll out but to go from having no badge notification problems to it constantly having on when you hot fix the problem and a month later it's still like that. Now for the people who are rating the service pof offers that's not rating the app. Talk about what features you like or dislike on the app, the glitches what you want from it. Saying you meet nice people doesn't help a programmer improve this app

  • buggy

    by Trbo1stgen

    Tired of the notifications badges not going away. Been there for weeks, and I got a new iphone today, and guess what there still there.

  • Terrible App and site.

    by Stripped0131

    Pof keeps deleting my profile for unknown reasons. I haven't violated any of their terms and they don't give you any explanation. Only thing I can think of is they're assuming I'm spam of something. Very disappointing site and can't contact them regarding any questions.

  • Badge notification won't go away

    by jxheartattack

    So annoying. Always says I have something when I don't. & the message notification sometimes pops up multiple times for the same message. It's like being spammed. Seriously fix this issue already.

  • Happy with it

    by Check1228

    The app works well for what it is intended. Sometimes notifications will stay on there even if there is nothing new. For a person with OCD that could be a problem

  • "Meet me"

    by JaveonB

    Great app but, why can't the meet me section match me with more people close to me instead of random far away locations or at least let me choose the miles.

  • Boo!.. No tech support!!

    by Elsabrososon

    I was deleted for no reason and never recd a response from tech support when I made a inquiry as to why.... I was enjoying the app but that sh*t incident sucked!

  • Not bad.

    by Squach509

    I've talked to a few girls. It isn't bad.

  • Picture orientation fail

    by Hendrixjimifdfjoig

    The new update makes it so my pictures will come out sideways and when I try to fix it, it smushes my picture. :/ reducing stars because this still hasn't been fixed.

  • Pathetic really

    by Xsteven77x

    The badges are such a primitive joke that I don't even know how it got paste Apple approval. Get a notification or two and they are frozen on the app icon for days.

  • Too many emails

    by Songggggpalm

    The app is great although I really need the emails to stop! Is there anyway to stop them from coming everytime you receive a message??

  • POF

    by dainell freeman

    I Truly❤Luv-It & This Is A Great-App!!

  • Badge happy

    by Keenansmith

    This app has the notification badge permanently on. I think they have it this way on purpose to mislead you into accessing the app more frequently. Also, the service is extremely limited without paying for the upgrade. Not impressed.

  • Great app but needs fixing!

    by Amber Brockett

    The badge notification needs fixing! I'm tired of looking at the notification bar and finding out that I have nothing to look at! Otherwise, it's a good app just needs twerked!

  • Going downhill

    by Fhraoch

    So I had not been on pof for 6 months and rejoined yesterday. Talk about a Hot Mess, the first guy to contact me stated in his profile how he was tired of meeting women who only want his money, then he proceeds to upload a pic of his @ick. The second guy to contact me only seemed interested in himself n telling me how he was about to get in the shower. I deleted/hid my profile late last evening after another guy sent me a nasty msg about still being on the site. I never did or said anything mean to anyone...just a site full of angry, bitter jackholes so be aware!

  • POF

    by Carpet 32

    Very good site. Gorgeous women. Highly recommend

  • Shows I have unread messages but have none! FIX!

    by Libertyforall

    Shows I have unread messages badging the app icon but yet I have none! STILL NOT FIXED!!! Cannot search by eye color! Add this!! Also needs some audio/video features!

  • Don"t Get this

    by Therealest27

    Yea you will be very sorry if you get this app, it's a freaken joke. Females are very prejudice ; in 2014 ridicolous right ??? Smh. I also noticed as previous users would tell you The bug issue on here horrible. I truly Believe websites like this are suitable for females WHO come online And portray To decent good men like they"re are The ones To be With In reality conplete trashhhh. Another thing Is I guess when u turn a female Down using vulgar language this Is how you Will be deleted ; when this happens its for good SMFH. Racist white website for Oreo cookie black females too !!!!!!!

  • Problem with app

    by MIke@3684

    Keeps saying I have unread messages. (#2 in top corner of app) so I delete the app an re download it. FIX IT

  • Fix the badge notifications!

    by Ty411

    Great app other than the fact I can't get rid of the badge notification. This was marked "fixed" in the last release, yet it's still broken. Only way to reset is to turn off POF notifications then back on. Or uninstall an reinstall. Very annoying.

  • Notification Error

    by Aaron Genske

    Says I have 2 notifications on my phone but I see no notifications in the app.

  • Works pretty well

    by tyler cooley

    The app works fairly well

  • Good. Better than expected

    by Jojo2010201

    Works. What more is there to say

  • Annoying

    by Camel_cracker

    Unless I log out, there is an annoying notification badge that remains. Fix it!!!!! Other than that I would give the app 4****. Plenty of awkward dates :)

  • Fix your app!!!

    by Please fix 1-13-14 problem

    When I get any type of notifications, the red circle will not go away! Please fix. This has been an issue for over a week and it's annoying. Fix it! Also, make Meet Me an option! We should be able to turn on and off the notifications.

  • Good app

    by dragonsoup

    Good except for even after you check a message it still tells you there is an alert

  • Ok at best

    by Foodog02

    Alright but could weed some people out!!!

  • Happy with this app it works !

    by GOD-OF

    I app works for the most part and am happy to say that I am met someone and are going on 4 months since we started talking on the site and a month of meeting in person Only compliant is they keep asking for money and you to upgrade to features that I have never seen or used.

  • Pof fun

    by Cosmobee

    It's a great way for new people to meet locals

  • Beware!

    by What? You can review now??

    This app violates your privacy by always using your location even when the location service is turned off. So much for managing your privacy. Their privacy policy is a JOKE!! They can do whatever they want to if not they can change their policy whenever they want to.

  • Coffee dates with the internet

    by Brendan sail 86

    Coffee dates being organized on the internet is my new fad....lol

  • Notifications won't go away

    by Domo1035

    Not sure what happened but when it updated now the notifications won't go away the numbers just stay there even if I have NO messages. I've deleted and re-downloaded it and it still does the same thing

  • Cool

    by Calistro beatz

    Not bad

  • Needs a little refinement

    by Punkt-Meister

    The app works great making it easier to navigate POF. There is a glitch in the system though. The App icon will show new messages when there aren't any. And when there are, and they've been read, it will still display that you have a new message. No biggie, but it would be nice if it were accurate.

  • Notification is stuck

    by Ohheyitsjackie

    Ever since the last update my notification symbol for the app won't go away. Also I don't receive notifications when I do receive a new message.

  • Push Notifications

    by Pintails

    It constantly has the 1 notification in the corner even though I have none. It's freaking annoying.

  • Worth every penny

    by Twisselmaster

    Wonderfully done. Thanks pof

  • Needs work

    by Greeneggz2

    It always shows I have a new message when I don't. Very annoying. iPhone app.

  • App

    by jerome oden

    It's good

  • Insecure

    by Metalheadpaintballer

    You really need to increase the security. I'm tired of having bots message or want to meet me 20 times a day, only to have their profile have some scam site in the about me

  • Excellent

    by taralovesmax

    The site is amazing too bad people aren't!

  • Broistheox

    by Space Ox

    Notices never seem to go away. Have to reinstall app.

  • Overall good

    by Deelust18

    For some reason the badges won't go away. Outside of that, I've been able to use the app relatively easily.

  • Not so great

    by Andrommy

    I have been having issues with this app tried contacting them no response.

  • Disappointed with update

    by Motiontf

    Be better if I could exclude people from other countries from my search results like the online version, also the badges don't work right New update is worthless!!!!!

  • Buena app..

    by Antonibric

    Le hace falta un poco de interacción

  • Just ok

    by Klees1967

    It was better. Money always messes things up

  • POF

    by StMinno

    Seems kool can't wait to really get into it more.

  • Derek

    by Hmmgjdvndgjt

    Sweet app


    by DreamParkPlayer

    I love the app it's very convenient however PLEASE fix the badges. It's driving me crazy!!! I'm very OCD about it and it will not go away so please fix it!!!

  • iPhone 5s

    by strawberry Shortcake

    Is not working for iPhone 5s. I log in and it loads and loads but doesn't finish loading so I can't do anything on it. Please fix

  • Great app needs work

    by Preston1221

    Pretty solid.. Crashes occasionally. Messaging could use some work tho

  • Push notification

    by Blondie8307

    App is decent. But the push notification never update after you check your messages....

  • Push notification

    by Blondie8307

    App is decent. But the push notification never update after you check your messages....

  • Okay app

    by Robbehod

    There are some clunky inefficiencies and the app could look and feel smoother and prettier, but it basically gets the job done reasonably well. It's smoother/prettier/more functional (in other words, better) than the ChristianMingle app, but not nearly as nice as the OKCupid app.

  • Notification

    by Lilbob223

    Notification bug gets on my nerves

  • Badge bug still not exterminated

    by Uncle Mac Podcast

    iOS 7.0.4 iPhone 5S latest POF version & I believe it's worse than ever before. It seems as though about 2-3 versions back if was fine.

  • Great

    by Jdwjej

    Good site to meet girls !!!!

  • Ok

    by Ralphster1983

    It's pretty good no biggie

  • Like this app

    by Bad site, rip off

    Do NOT get the upgrade or PAY for any upgrade. It is a scam. They claim that by upgrading you can see who and when someone views your profile. This is NOT true. I searched who views me, clicked on their page. At the bottom, it tells me when they were last on, and says "this person has NOT yet viewed you." So, if they come up as viewed me, then it says they have not yet viewed me? Then I just paid $89 for a feature that is FALSE advertisement. A little mad about this. Have called pof to get a refund immediately. Got an answering machine. Hopefully this gets taken care of and I get reimbursed. Disappointed. And I had to write a nice title or it would not let me post this the first 30 times trying with how I really feel about this site.

  • Bad Badge Notification

    by Thisguy150

    Everything on the app work just fine easy to use good finding some great girls but seeing that notification is driving me nuts

  • App fine...

    by zmarshall79

    App is fine; for the most part. Selection is not.

  • Fix the notification bug!!

    by Stacy Auslam

    Going to have to uninstall ti it's fixed!

  • Need more singles

    by Ducky-2014

    Love the site

  • Not bad.

    by Brittni Leiker

    Not a bad app but after the last update it says I have a notification that will not go away. I've gone in to everything as well as reinstalled. Not an issue but kind of annoying.

  • Pof more like Apple failure

    by Braso654333

    Awful notification bug fix did not work. Always shoes message always.... Annoying to say the least. Several people reported this problem they just ignore this problem. Try another site all pof wants you to do is update status. Meaning $ 30 .00 a month Please


    by Iamtekdamane

    Works like a charm for me at least lol
