Are you looking for a match but worried about signing up into random websites where you are among a bunch of total strangers? Do not worry. You have the first ever match making app Spritzr that has the facility where you can hang out with your own friends with match making suggestions coming in for you from your friends themselves. That’s a relief isn’t it?
Spritzr is a free app available on the play store and it can be just downloaded and installed. On opening the app, it requests to sign in with Facebook. The app claims that it doesn’t post on Facebook but needs to sign in with Facebook as it is used to check for security and accuracy.
When signing in with Facebook, Spritzr requests access to public profile, friends list, date of birth and photos without which a user cannot use this app.
Once signed in, the app requests the user to choose their path from 2 given options.
- In a relationship – Choosing this option lets you suggest matches for friends who are single. It takes you off the market and labels you as a matchmaker
- Single – Choosing this option or path is perfect if you are looking for quality matches
If you aren’t sure of either of the above, you can always choose the most appropriate one and switch to another one later.
On choosing this option, you are taken to a page where you have 2 tabs. One is “Friends” tab where you play matchmaker for the Spritzr community. Here you are given 10 matches for a day to suggest for your friends. You can invite friends to join the community as well.
Other is the “Community” tab where you can suggest matches for people other than your friends but are looking for one match.
When viewing each profile, there is an information “i” icon that will let you view information like height, personal information like, how many kids, etc., qualification, a short profile with interests and some photos. Below this profile, there is a list of suggestions to recommend for matchmaking and you as a matchmaker can suggest appropriate matchers from these candidates for them.
Spritzr takes you to a page where you enter your information like, gender, who you are looking for (e.g. man or woman) and where you are looking for (location, needs entering postcode) and based on the post code entered, Spritzr will fetch location.
You are then taken to a page where you input information like a short introduction / description of yourself, gender, interested in man or woman, height, smoker or not, religious faith (optional), politics (optional), kids (optional), education (your highest qualification), school (name of school that you attended), work, interests (should choose 3+) and finish profile.
Once you have completed the above, you will be taken to a page where you have 2 tabs. The “Friends” tab where you play matchmaker for the Spritzr community and the “Community” tab where you can suggest matches for people who are looking for one.
The menu for Spritzr is on the top left side of the app window. Below are the features of the app.
- Shows the number of Karma points and number of friends
- Suggestions – Tapping this shows suggestions based on the profile that you have created
- Messages – This tab has any messages that you may have received from friends or others
- Settings – Tapping this, the user can set up notifications for new messages, successful matches and when new friends join
While Spritzr may seem attractive and safe cos you hang out among a bunch of friends and match suggestions come from them, there are some negatives like it cannot be used without signing into a Facebook account.
