Hot or Not! app review: find and connect with people who secretly like you in your local area 2021



Whether you’re looking to find love or simply make a few new friends, Hot or Not! is a great way of simplifying the process by letting people know that you like them based on their pictures and the content in the profile, removing much of the complication involved with online dating sites.

Let’s face it, the vast majority of people use profile pictures as their first impression when it comes to dating websites.

The developer of Hot or Not! seems to have understood this perfectly because the basic format enables you to quickly tap a button based on whether or not you find the person attractive, so you can very quickly browse through dozens upon dozens of users without wasting time loading individual profiles.

Feelin' Hot Hot Hot!

One thing that put a smile on my face upon first starting up this app is that you can register very quickly by using your Facebook account. There is a message that promises not to post anything to your Facebook profile without your permission, so don’t worry about your mom finding you on here!

I really like the interface in Hot or Not! because it has a wonderfully streamlined design. You’ll be presented with images of each user and you can swipe left and right to thumb through their photos if they have more than one.

You can also see how many friends and interests you both have in common to get a quick at-a-glance impression of whether or not the two of you would get along.

If you want to find out more about them, you can tap the “i” button in the bottom left-hand corner to bring up more of their information, including details such as their interests, location, and relationship status, as well as their attitudes towards smoking and drinking.

If you really like what you see in both their pictures and profile, you can tap the love heart button at the bottom of the screen in order to let them know you’re interested. If they respond positively, you’ll be offered the option of messaging each other so you can get to one another a little better.

Final Words

I really like the way Hot or Not! simplifies every step of meeting people.

The app itself is very streamlined as I mentioned, and the actual premise behind it all makes the process far quicker and easier, but I think it will really come down to what your personal preferences are when it comes to dating overall.

Either way, I definitely think Hot or Not! is worth checking out because there are some great features.
