POF or Plenty of Fish Dating app prides itself at being a dating app that offers features completely for free. The app is available to download in only a select number of countries, however. POF is available on all iOS devices and Android devices. It has over 50 million downloads on the Google Play Store alone so we can estimate the success of its app.
POF might not be as widely known as Tinder but there have been many success love stories that have come from this platform. This is a great place for singles to find a potential partner through the app’s integrated algorithm system and a series of messages exchanged through the app’s built-in chat feature.
POF presents the idea that there are plenty of fish in the sea and if you get lucky, you might find yourself one on POF. The app constantly reminds us that it is completely free with literally zero in-app purchases. This is unique for a dating app because with most dating apps and websites, you need to pay some sort of subscription charges to make use of the app’s features. In fact, some apps won’t even let you send a text to a match without paying.
POF, on the other hand, does things differently. On POF, everything is free. That means that you can make use of the app’s matching algorithm system for free. You can also send an unlimited amount of text messages to other people completely for free.
There’s a catch though – the app is littered with tons of ads. That is to be expected, though, since this app is downloadable for free and offers zero in-app purchases. Plus, although the apps are plenty and banner ads take up a substantial amount on the screen, they don’t really hinder your experience on POF. The match making technology on POF works in the same way as most other apps do. You tell the app your preferences and your hobbies; the app searches its platform for the best possible match for you filtered according to your location.
You can also send an unlimited number of text messages to a match. In fact, the app claims that its users are 2.7 times more likely to start up a conversation with a match on POF within 24 hours compared to other dating sites. We’re not sure how they calculated these statistics but we’ll take their word for it! The chat feature is pretty colorful and has support for photos, videos and voice note sharing. New conversation features are constantly added on the app. Recently the Conversation Drawer option was introduced that lets you archive and access all your important messages instantly. You can also make use of some bonus features in the app to make communications on POF stronger. This includes the Spark option and Conversation Powers.
The user feedback on the app is a testimony that POF has produced genuine real-life couples from its platform. The 4+ star rating is pretty decent for a dating app. However, not everyone using POF has had a good experience. Some have complained of technical bugs and problems with sending voice notes. Others have reported many profiles being fabricated, fake or owned by ‘porn peddlers’.
