Another geolocation-based app aimed at meeting people you’ve crossed paths with in real life. Happn uses GPS tracking to monitor its members and notifies them when they walk across one another.  Users can like each other, though it remains secret until liking is mutual. And only in this case you are allowed to start a conversation, which can make you wait for too long before finally getting in touch with your crush.


  • mutual opt-in style of meeting
  • localization privacy.


  • little chance of coming across another user
  • duplicated matches
  • can’t start a conversation without mutual liking
  • incorrect notification service.

    Too buggy
    Good idea, great concept, but too buggy. You can’t even use the app. Very unfortunate!

  2. Nickv21

    Too many bugs
    Idea great, execution poor. It currently tells me I have several messages but I can’t see them. Defeats the purpose of the app.

  3. The Mingling Man

    The update is constantly giving me errors and it’s hurting the current conversations I’m having. Please fix this issue quick!!!!

    Crazy buggy
    Get to work developers.

    Was working fine until update
    Now it crashes immediately on my iPhone 5s. I liked the concept though. If they get it working again, I would rate it higher.

    Can’t upload photos
    Photos I choose don’t save in my profile.

    Nice idea. But often broken & buggy
    Slow to update. Inaccurate location detection and failed refreshing. Everyone complains about buggy texting feature. Days can pass before a text is delivered, if at all. Disappointed.

    This new version is practically unusable
    Any time I try to use any function of the application that connects to the internet, I get an unknown error occurred” notification. I restarted my phone and the application but I still cannot use it properly.”

    Unknown errors make it unusable
    As is often the case with any app update…it doesn’t work. It reports a plethora of unknown errors.” It will hopefully be fixed with another update soon.”
