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.

    Great idea, terrible UI
    Love the concept but it has two major flaws. 1) you can’t filter by anything more than age and the number of people to scroll through becomes so unwieldy I surely miss people entirely. And 2) is the horrible implementation of the Charms. These are paid ‘winks’ basically. But I accidentally charm people all the time that. Either while scrolling and accidentally hitting the Charm button or after clicking the check mark and it seemingly not responding I click it again just as it morphs to say charm. I’ve even written in about all my wasted charms and nobody even responds. So, two stars.

    Tinder works much better for me, i like how i could customize my profile, but the app crashes on me a lot and ive had it for a week and still havent come in contact with anyone. either no one has this app or it just doesnt work very well.

  3. listenloudplaylouder

    More like 3 or 4 stars. Selling out to get more of dat crush cred so I can smash dat gash yadadamean?!

  4. Norcal bay

    Have to sign in with Facebook?!?!
    Forget it!!!

  5. Loveleigal

    Someone is using my number!
    Apparently someone who has a profile is using my cell number to give out to people. I don’t even have a happn account (Just made one to do a review) I’ve never heard of happn until this person was texting claiming he’s been chatting with me. He sent me screenshots of the girl named Michelle” who is using my number. Very upset!!”

  6. Noelle Seybert

    Crashes at opening
    Can’t open the app. Always crashes.

  7. Lalameme5

    Keeps crashing
    Every other day the app crashes (it doesn’t even open). I have to delete and download it again.

  8. Johnay

    Crashes immediately
    Can’t even login.

  9. SquatGoblin

    Preferences don’t update
    A dating app is only as good as well it can find people you’re interested in, so since it won’t actually update preferences, get ready for a bunch of useless results.

  10. kiersten hotaling

    Facebook related
    Apps really need to stop connecting things with Facebook. It’s as if Facebook runs the world.

  11. anewidea

    Crashes constantly and Sexist
    Crashes constantly on my 4S. Not quitting app or rebooting phone works. I have to re-download daily to get app to work. Also, charms free for women and charged for men? That’s sexist.

  12. QUEEN_S

    Was great til my iphone updated
    Now it doesn’t work at all. Crashes 1second after opening app.

  13. frivolousjosh

    Fake people
    All the people who appear are fake. When I reviews the screenshots here on the AppStore I saw the same people.

  14. AlejoValenV

    One app more
    One more

  15. AmitJha

    Crashes so much!!!!
    I can’t believe the number of times this thing crashes!!

  16. Science lover lv

    Beyond buggy
    I hate leaving bad reviews since I know how much it takes to make a good app, but this app is beyond buggy. Messages go missing or multiples get sent. Conversations die out of confusion. Considering the current and previous versions have been so unstable I don’t expect much coming from this app/team.

  17. Everlasting Ch

    Would not recommend
    Does not work. I don’t even think the charms and messages go through. I don’t believe that out of the tens of people there are no messages. You better off meeting these people at a bar. At least there would be a connection.

  18. Sashabish

    Keeps crashing!!
    Fix pls. Keeps crashing

  19. B-KLYN

    Needs some work
    The concept is great, but seems to crash frequently, messages don’t update and/or sometimes don’t go through despite good connection, and occasionally unresponsive when ‘liking’ the lovely ladies.

  20. Nightfmohawk

    Waited 4 days and still can’t find any people near my area

  21. TheBigAppleGuy

    Okeish but failing
    Not sure why but this app seems to be crashing on me after the recent iOS update.

  22. Duped Derrick

    Don’t Bother
    This app seems fun but I am very suspicious that it actually works. After 50 attempts of liking” somebody and not getting any response I deleted app. I’m sure one could argue that maybe people aren’t interested in me – however – I was relieved to hear five of my fiends deleted the app for the exact same reason.”

  23. Ansiblealpha

    Crashes upon loading
    I can’t even open the app because it crashes every time I try to load it

  24. thisisapromise

    Is eh

  25. Messenger broken

    Messenger broken
    The messenger does not work. I have been charmed I write but I don’t get an answer!!!!!!

  26. Izl6

    Needs an update
    The concept of the app is great but it still has some bugs. I get message notifications but I can never see the actual messages. Makes it really annoying to chat with people which is the whole point of the app. Please fix this problem!

  27. uhalan

    Liked it until it stopped working
    After upgrading to iPhone 6 seems to stopped working on my phone any suggestions?

  28. jadelily23

    Chat is dysfunctional
    The chat feature doesn’t always display messages.. conversations are lost. Please fix this

  29. Tpc2000

    Doesn’t work properly
    Still isn’t working

  30. Hiiiiiifriend

    Keeps crashing!
    I was enjoying this app and chatting with a few promising people, and now every time I try to open it, it crashes! Bogus!
