The ‘Align’ app ethos

The Align dating app is perfect for a hippy, ethereal type of person who enjoys the thought of leaving their romantic fate to the universe. Love matching through astrology is a quirky but refreshing take on dating. Align focuses on relationships rather than casual dating or hook-ups.

How ‘Align’ works


Ease of use

Align is very easy to use. The app has an attractive and clean interface that you wouldn’t feel awkward about accessing in a public place.

Matchmaking


Messaging

‘Aligning’ is when two people decide they would be a great match. Once this has happened, a conversation can begin via instant messaging.

You can’t message anyone you haven’t expressed interest in, and this is a fab feature for people who find receiving unexpected messages from strangers tiresome. It’s a waste of time to have to politely turn them down and avoid getting involved in a conversation you don’t want.

Search Functions

Search criteria

The age range is the only controllable search criteria. Obviously, you’ll be matched with people who share the same sexual orientation as you.

Searching by location

Align is only available in Los Angeles, New York, and The Bay area of California, so you will be shown the people who live in your city for practically, convenience and the higher chance of meeting for a date that proximity brings.

Safety & Security

Customer service

The Align customer care team is accessible via an email address and a contact form. This will be where you turn if you ever have any concerns about another member or an issue with your app.

Verification

Identification of identity is through a connection to an active and legitimate Facebook account. The requirement to use the profile pic on your Facebook page is part of this process.

FAQ

There isn’t an FAQ section on the Align website though the invitation to email them to ‘chat’ is welcoming and warm.

Incognito mode

There is no way to go ‘off-grid’ on Align. It’s not in keeping with the spirit of the app. You could change your profile picture to something generic like a tree, but we sensed that this would lead to very few matches on an app with the customer base of Align.

Dating safety


Summary

Align is quirky, but it could be the perfect option for a single person who has lost faith in traditional dating sites and apps. Letting the stars decide your fate is remarkably freeing and allows you to focus on other areas of your life.
