Easy to Use
The app takes a matter of seconds to download, and from that moment onwards, users will find out what the service is all about. The app has a very simple signing up process that takes no time at all, and no verification is needed either, which makes it quick and efficient.
The app asks for their location and access to their gallery, and that is easy enough too. Once users are set up, they are then presented with the homepage where they can view other users who are local to them or located in other areas around the world. There is a search function at the top of the screen too.
When they search, they are presented with a screen where they can search for users easily. At the bottom of the screen is where users will find the quick menu, which includes the match feature and a handy feature where users can select specific cities nearby to find matches. Along with this, there is a handy events section where users can view up and coming events too.
If users want to update their profile, then this can be found under the menu at the top left, and this is where users can also find access to customer support.
The site is extremely user-friendly, and once users have their member login, they are presented with members who are local to them. They can also search for members using the global option while the search function will provide users with several search options. The basic and free search asks for users to search by username and location while they can search by city too.
Using the premium account, users can make use of the enhanced search function, and this enables them to search by photo type as well as other attributes such as relationship, age, height, weight, and more.
The Scruff Match feature is a swipe feature where users can swipe left or right based on whether they like the user or not and down if they are unsure. This will then enable the service to create a profile of your likes and dislikes, and that will give it the ability to present you with matches that meet your specific needs.
So, users won’t have any problem working out how to search on Scruff as it is very easy and efficient.
Safety & Security
The service is not as secure as other services as it does not require a verification process like other services. Users can download the app and begin using it without an account. However, the lack of verification can leave users concerned about their dating safety. As the app is readily available in the Play store and in the Apple store, it can be downloaded and used by anyone.
If users have an issue, there is a Scruff customer service available where users can submit a problem while there is an FAQ section that offers a range of questions.
This is a very smart looking app that keeps everything simple and easy. The signing up process is quick, matches are displayed on the homepage, and searching is efficient too. The swiping system works really well, and the site creates matches based on your swipes. What does let the service down is the way that it requires very little in the way of verification, and that could turn users away. However, it is a very good service that does exactly as it promises.
