Matchmallows review: a fun dating and chat app

Reviews

Introduction

Matchmallows by Prodigits is a simple easy to use dating and chat app that will appeal to any adult trying to get back into the dating scene. Whether you’re just coming out of a long term relationship, still in a relationship but want to explore your options, or you’re just looking for a little companionship, you can find what you’re looking for with Matchmallows. The great thing about iPad and iPhone dating apps is that they take a lot of the guesswork out of the dating scene – you don’t have to hang out at bars to find someone new and interesting if you don’t want to these days when you have apps like Matchmallows. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

There are countless options these days for people that want to start a relationship via the online route, and many of these are in the form of apps. To be successful a dating site, the app has to offer some sort of free portion to their service with so much competition out there, and it also has to have a few different communication options. Matchmallows ticks the boxes in both of these areas and it also has a nice clean user interface as well. If you’re serious about finding someone then this isn’t a bad place to start.

10 free apps worth checking out

Unfortunately, there are a few problems with the Matchmallows app that are hard to overlook. First of all it only allows you to sign up using either your Facebook or Instagram accounts – this definitely won’t appeal to a lot of people. If you’re just getting your feet wet in the dating scene you may not want to publicize a lot of personal information right away, but unfortunately this app doesn’t give you a choice. It’s also completely lacking instructions. This isn’t a difficult app to figure out, but a bit of an introduction would have been nice. The other issue is that there aren’t a lot of options in the free version – to get full access to all of the app's features you will have to sign up for a premium membership. This app will require 24.5 MB of available space on your iOS device.

The Essential Match

After you’ve signed up with one of your social media accounts, the app will walk you through a series of 27 questions to develop your profile – it’s actually pretty accurate and it then uses these answers to match you with people nearby. When you tap on the nearby option, a large picture of a potential match is presented to you. If you like what you see you can tap on the checkmark or, if you don’t, you can simply swipe the picture to the left to move on. I found there weren’t a lot of matches near me, but if you’re not afraid to travel you can tap on the On Fire option at the top of the app and you’ll be able to view potential matches from around the globe.

Each potential match usually includes several pictures, as well as a list of their personality traits and interests if you swipe up on their profile. To help you decide, the app gives you a percentage of how closely you are matched with someone. There’s an overall rating, a lifestyle rating, a personality rating, and a passion rating, so you can actually make a pretty informed decision based on what’s important to you. However, to match up with people outside your local area you will need to have a premium membership.

Final Words

Matchmallows is a decent dating and chat app available for most iOS devices. With a pretty good rating system, it’s fairly straightforward with finding a potential match.
