What can you use the app for?

DateHookup is a free online dating service that helps users find single men and women in their area. User profiles include a number of personal details, such as age, height, body type, ethnicity, religion, education, political views, income level, job status, smoking preference and whether or not the user has children. The user can also include the gender and age range they are looking for as well as interests and a photograph. Virtual gifts can be sent between users which appear on the recipient profile. Featured friends are also included so visitors can see who the user is into. The site also provides a community forum so users have more ways to connect.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

DateHookup has received a number of reviews from users and bloggers all over the web. The site has a number of appealing features, especially when it comes to price. Users also noted that the site includes forums and blogs so there are more ways to get to know someone before making contact. The downside is that the site also includes advertisements that can be annoying at times.

What are the differences to other apps?

The main difference most users will notice between DateHookup and the many other dating sites on the web is the price. The user doesn’t have to pay anything to access the site. Many of the features are similar to what users find on other websites, although DateHookup lacks fancy scientific matchmaking tools or other advanced features. This is to be expected from a site that offers its services for nothing.

Alternative Apps
How does the web app look and feel to use?

DateHookup has a clean interface, although it feels dated at times. The advanced search includes a number of boxes that the user can scroll through to find their filter options. While this approach works, it is not very visually appealing. The site uses rich, upbeat colors but could benefit from a few modern improvements. It is easy to navigate so new users should have no problem getting around.

How does the registration process work?

New users can join the DateHookup community by clicking the gold “Join” tab found along the top of the homepage. The form on the next page asks for a username, password, email address, gender preferences, date of birth, country and zip code. A note beside the email address field lets the user know that their address is kept private. The user must complete a list of personal details before accessing their account.

What does it cost to use the application?

DateHookup makes its services even more appealing by offering access for free. There are no subscription fees and the user doesn’t have to pay to make contact with others. This is a nice change from the many paid dating websites. The downside is the advertisements, some of which are animated and distracting as the user searches for a date or fills out their profile details.

Who would you recommend the application to?

DateHookup is a great tool for single men and women. The community is varied and access is completely free. Users can try the site out and login as often or infrequently as they like without wasting any money. The tools are simple so those searching for advanced matchmaking features will be disappointed. DateHookup offers an appealing service for the price.
