How Does Happn App Work?
- It’s quite simple: (That’s what mentioned by Happn)
- When you cross paths with someone in real life who has happn, their profile appears on your app.
- Check your Timeline to find all the profiles you’ve crossed paths with. For each profile, you can see how many times you’ve crossed paths, as well as the location and time it happened (no, no need to be a detective)!
- Fancy someone? Like them secretly. We promise the other person will not know about it unless they Like you too (yes, you might get lucky). Would you like to get noticed? Say Hello to send a notification!
- You Like each other? It’s a Crush! But wait, that’s not it… Find the right words to start a conversation (show off your writing skills)!
- You can also choose to defy fate and play CrushTime, the game in which you have to guess who Liked you amongst four profiles you’ve recently crossed paths with.

Here’s how it looks,
- Grabbing a bite
- Getting a drink

The user can see profiles shown up on the home screen, it will show as
“Crossed Paths Near or You crossed path recently” followed by profiles. The app recommends premium feature in the profiles section itself. When a user scrolls around 5 profiles, they can see the LIKE feature been mentioned. A good way to improve the conversion rate of normal users into premium users.
User Profiles have these things mentioned,
- For the first time! Or Crossed Paths Near
- Last login time 5 mins ago or Now
- Name and Age
- Cancel – Hello (Star) – Heart Options under the image
Discover option shows recently joined users. Clicking on the profile shows the name, age, active today & distance. Users can also report & block a person by clicking on the top right icons in the profile.
When you click at a premium feature image or any other options, then you have to wait for 60 – 90 seconds to look at profiles again. It refreshes every now and then when you check other buttons. Sometimes it takes a lot of time and ends up not showing the profiles.

Happn Review Summary:
To put it a nutshell, the happn app is certainly unique and got easy interface and settings. In order to use it, you got to keep the location-enabled all the time (which can considerably drain your phone battery if you’re using it for a long time). The real-time profile recommendation and the distance mentioned keeps the app fresh and live.
People who haven’t tried any dating app would feel awe. But having said that, there is always room for improvement. Loading of profiles can be much faster than the usual time now. Repetition of profiles looks unnecessary. Overall, start from the sign up to upgrading to premium features, the app is pretty easy to access. No such complexity in getting used to the app.
The full-fledged tutorial is not mentioned in the Play store as well as the App store. Explanation of important feature is only covered in a mobile view.
The authenticity of profiles and images is not up to the mark on happn app. We can see a lot of general images, quotes, celebrity images which makes it less effective results for a serious dating user.
The Size of the app is slightly on the higher side. For Play Store, it shows 18 MB in size but the fact is after downloading and using it for an hour, it increases to 100 MB, so the size varies with device, & usage. For ios the App Store, it shows 169.b MB in size.
The App was created on a principle of reciprocity: i.e we promise you’ll never receive a message from a profile you are not interested in. Which means the user has to use HELLO or LIKE options to show interest on a profile, only when the other person looks at your profile and feel likable, they’ll respond back. So, it totally eradicates the usual direct message option. Phew!
Your location will not be shown to other members. It will only show the path in which users have crossed before. Again it’s a geometric feature and need not worry about privacy. It’s fully secured.
Invisible mode is free for 8 hours and if in case of scheduling the invisibility option, you need to be a premium member. For hiding the age, login date or distance, you have to be a premium user for that.
Ratings – 4.3 from 1,341,963 reviews (Playstore)
Ratings – 4.2 from 18.2k reviews (Appstore)
To sum up Happn, it is a pretty interesting app which helps people to find dates near or within a particular distance. Comparative to other dating apps, happn seems to be affordable & mobile friendly. If you’re a new user looking for finding a nearby date, probably happn is your best bet. Downloading and use of this app is FREE!
