Dating can be quite frustrating, especially if you feel like you've been doing it forever and still haven't found that perfect match. The hook app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to hook into your own network of friends in order to see if that perfect someone is hiding within them. The way it works is that it provides you with "dating options" by looking through your Facebook friends and friend's friends. It helps you broaden your social circle and often that’s all it takes. Let’s examine to see if this is one of the best dating apps for iPhone and iPad.
What’s cool about this app is that it uses your existing network of friends. By doing this you take away the element of meeting up with a stranger because you will always have at least one friend in common. The app uses your Facebook friends as well as the friends of your friends. From here if you find someone who catches your eye you can "hook" them. What's great is that this hook is anonymous. From here that person can hook you back if they choose and then you can take it from there. It really takes away the fear of rejection since the hook is anonymous, so that way if you are turned down it’s no big deal because the person will never know it was you that hooked them.
In the app's recent update there were a number of improvements and enhancements made as well as bug fixes. The app is now smoother and more enjoyable to use. The app is free to download but you can purchase coins as in-app purchases that range in price from $0.99 to $4.99. The app currently has a perfect five star rating from users who love this unique idea of using your existing social network.
A Cool Concept
I have to echo the comments of users. I really think this is a cool dating/matchmaking concept. I like that it's using your existing network of friends and helping you to see people you may not have even noticed before. I appreciate the fact it offers some features like recommendations, hints, messages, next steps, and other items. It puts a whole new spin on dating and really can re-energize you look at it.
When you launch the app you’ll need to sign in through Facebook since it uses your Facebook friends. From here you can start the process. When you get sent a hook you can reveal the match but this cost coins or you can delete. The same goes when you send someone else a hook.
