Ease of Use
The colors of the app are simple to view, and the features can be found along the top of the app, making them simple to find. They will find their profile, the search function, and the Tinder-like feature where users can swipe left or right depending on whether they like them or not. There is also a status feature as well as the matching feature, which is provided based on the results of playing the swiping game.
The search function is very different, and that means that users cannot search for random users to chat with. Therefore, the site relies on the swipe game to determine whom you like. It will then build a profile of what you like based on your swipes and then provide you with matches. What’s more, if you swipe right on a profile and they do the same for you, then you will be able to chat with them.
There is a power-like feature where you can show other members that you like them, and they will be notified of this instantly. However, power-likes will cost money, so the more you use, the more it will cost. So, working out how to search in Surge dating app is not as simple as it might be on other services.
Without the ability to search by city or search by username, it is not possible to search profiles based on what you like. It is more of a data-driven site that users clever algorithms to work out what you like for you.
Safety & Security
This app seems very safe when it comes to ensuring the dating safety of its members. Users have to go through an email verification process, which is basic, but they also have to upload an image that meets the criteria. If the site believes that the profile is fake, they will ask users to take selfies while copying gestures they see on the screen. This is a clever and unique ways of ensuring profiles are safe.
The site has a very detailed FAQ section that covers a range of questions while there is also an email address that enables users to contact the Surge customer service.
Surge is a very different dating service, but one that is simple enough to use for most members. Based around a matching service, it requires user input in order for it to determine what members are looking for. This will then provide them with matches that they can swipe on. The registration process is fairly straightforward and easy to follow, while the safety features are very useful for those who worry about their dating safety. Overall, this is a very good app, but one that does require the user to play their part.
