Natter App Review Results
Wij realize that Natter is comprised of a very petite development team based ter the UK. Wij can understand why making thick switches to their verhoging can become terrific and how issues can arise. Wij sincerely wish them well and hope that Natter becomes teh dating app they want it to be.
However, te the here and now, wij cannot see anyone having any success with Natter spil a dating or people discovery app.
When measured by the standards of a dating app, wij would have to rate Natter spil POOR.
— Pros and Cons —
- App has bot evolving since 2011
- Available for iOS and Android
- Plain user interface
- Fresh dating feature is still very embryonic
- Many existing members not aware of the apps fresh dating capabilities
- Incapable to customize the search for potential matches
- Poor user practice for dating
— In-Depth Natter App Review —
What happens when you take a nonchalant social network app with a moderate following and convert it into a social dating app?
Well, obviously the space-time continuum is not affected for wij are all still here — at least wij think wij are. Anyway, Natter, the social app that some of you may reminisce from different incarnations ter the past rebooted itself merienda again te . This time with eyes on becoming a hybrid social-dating app.
It is spil if the developers eyed the “shortage” of dating apps on the market and determined, “hey, why don’t wij give the world another dating app?”
All jokes aside, while wij are no longer ter the age of people discovering dating apps for the very first time, wij are ter the age of people “collecting” dating apps. Te other words, being active on numerous dating platforms. That is very likely what inspired Natter to join the ever-expanding legions of dating apps.
— How Did Natter Get Here? —
Natter has bot around since 2011. Ironically, it embarked its life on the” appiverse” spil a quasi-dating/people discovery app. Back then it functioned much spil Chatroulette or Omegle. You would register, indicate some of your preferences for the type of people that you would like to meet and you would then be served with random live movie feeds that would last for one minute. Well, that idea didn’t fairly work out.
Flash forward a duo of years and Natter became a truncated Twitter. It wasgoed a social media toneel where users were expected to postbode updates and memes comprised of three words. Yes, three words. Evidently, that didn’t go so well either.
— Natter Today —
That brings us to the present. While Natter has retained its “mini-twitter” three-word posting style for its main feed, it also launched a premium project that added a few more features that, according to the developers, are intended to enrich the user practice and turn Natter into an app for people to talk, meet and date.
Te terms of availability, it remains a mobile-only app with versions for both Android and iOS available spil free downloads from their respective repositories.
— What Do You Get? What Are the Features? —
The free version of Natter permits you to have a profile pagina on which you can include basic information about who you are. You can also upload a profile pic. The basic version also gives you access to the “newsfeed.” That’s where you can find those annoying three-word “nats.” Wij’re sorry, did wij say “annoying?” Wij meant non-sensical.
Anyway, the basic version now also has a “Meet” feature. This consists of a tiled mosaic of other members’ profile pictures.
If you spot someone who strikes your fancy you can open their profile and request a private talk with them. If they agree, then you can start to make your stir.
Unluckily, the free version of Natter does not permit you to customize te any way the list of members that emerge on your “Meet” pagina. You will be served with members of all ages, genders, and locations. That is hardly ideal if real-world encounters are on your mind.
This is where the premium version comes into play. By upgrading to premium, not only are ads liquidated from your screen, but you can also sort the profiles of other members by geographic proximity to you. Yeah, wij know, that’s not much of a filtering mechanism. What can wij say, maybe Natter wasgoed going for the “minimalist” treatment?
— User Practice —
Te the opinion of our testers, this third incarnation of Natter is a dud. Mind you, the developers have stated that further switches are forthcoming that will turn Natter into more of a people discovery and dating app, but they have yet to provide any specifics or roadmap. The way it stands now te mid-, you cannot have any reasonable expectation of actually meeting someone for a date or a hookup on this app.
Overheen a three-day period, our three testers managed to engage a total of 16 different people te private conversations. However, none were enthused about meeting te person. The lack of a decent search engine with accompanying filtering renders the entire “Meet” feature practically worthless. Nobody is going to love talking with people with whom they don’t have anything te common aside from living nearby.
Also, when our testers undertook their evaluation, Natter had already undergone its transformation overheen six months prior. Exceptionally, their rollout emerges to have bot so lackluster that some of their existing members were uninformed spil to what all the switches were about. Our testers literally had to inform 12 of the 16 people with whom they engaged ter private talks spil to the switches that Natter is making. That’s not very inspiring when you pay for something and three-quarters of the people who you meet are not there for the same purpose you are. Whatsmore, the Natter members that described themselves spil “long-time” members were more angered and annoyed by Natter attempting to become a dating app than welcoming.
Well, at least the cost structure for Natter Premium is effortless to recall. There is only one tier, that is $Four.99 for one month.
When wasgoed the last time you spotted a dating app with only one payment option?
