Sadly, you also will only be able to see the five most recent visitors to your profile unless you pay for an upgrade and — worst of all — anyone can message you. Download now from: i Tunes Google Play Coffee Meets Bagel does require logging in through your Facebook in order to create a profile.
Once you’ve set up your profile and input your preferences, it will send you one “bagel” a day, which is essentially the profile of a potential match.
If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.
You can like people or message them in a similar fashion to Tinder, but messaging is your better bet: Users can see who has liked them only if they have upgraded to “A-list” status.
You can load up to nine photos and have a much more prolific profile, too.
And if you’ve entered any icebreakers into your profile, the app will send one of them to a bagel you’ve connected with as the first message for greater convenience.
To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.
Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps, too (hitting almost 50 million users back in late 2014), meaning the likelihood of matching with someone you’re interested in who doesn’t live super far away is greater than with apps that have fewer users.

When you exit back to the list, there’s no guarantee that it’ll be in the same order or that it will return you to the spot you scrolled down to, making it extremely obnoxious to keep track of what you’ve already viewed.
Worse, you can’t see who has liked you unless you pay for an upgrade. If you don’t reply, they’ll probably just keep on messaging you, too. Facebook verification helps block a percentage of bots and catfishers from creating accounts, and without it, Ok Cupid loses a level of reliability.
You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app.
