Good app with problems.
I just want to start this out by saying this app used to be amazing... but not it’s starting to fall apart. I used to get hundreds of requests a day and everyone I requested always gave me their snap but after I deleted my profile and made a new one it stop working. I’ve tried deleting the app and making even more profile but it just doesn’t work it won’t ever load people profiles for me and when it does I can’t request their snap. I also think people can’t see me anymore on the app because I use the same photos as before and what went from HUNDREDS of request is now sadly zero i tried making sure my profile was complete and I check I had the right snap linked up but it’s like my profile just doesn’t excite anymore PLEASE HELP ME even when I try to watch an add or get assistance it says the sane thing can’t load try again later >:(

Horribly underdeveloped
I assume making the app less like a dating app serves fixes to legal problems, but it makes the app much less enjoyable. Features such as having the option to only show people near you, or the ability to have a bio to say something about yourself, would make the app serve it’s purpose to make friends much more efficiently. I also think it’s strange that after I ask to see someone’s snap and they accept the request, which then leads to a notification showing their name and saying to either add they snap or decline, sometimes it doesn’t give me the ability to see more then the persons first picture. I am not mistaken in finding this, and it can be extremely annoying as someone could have something that doesn’t show any Thing about them except for a picture of their face. Making them less recognizable. Please fix this bug, or change it if it is intact a feature. Overall this app is decent at best, and incredibly underdeveloped for its popularity. A side note, I see many profiles advertising a child porn website when I’m scrolling through, and every time I see them I report the account and block it, but the user making these account keeps making them and making your app look pretty bad so I’d think you’d want to do something about it. I’ve been seeing these accounts for as long as I’d have the app, about 2 weeks.

Good at first, but it went downhill
I liked hoop at first. I went on it about everyday, until recently it stopped working the way it should. I kept adding people, or requesting for their snap, and it seemed like the request would go through. That’s when I started to notice that I would see the person I attempted to add before come up and be recommended to me again. It became increasingly frustrating, as I was wasting my gems on someone who I had already added once. It it getting to the point that I added the same person about 4 times because I thought the issue was on my end. I have restarted the app numerous times, and, not to say that I am in high demand or anything, have received no requests or snaps at all in the past week. I feel like there would be at least one person. When I tried to contact support through the app, which again was numerous times, I received a banner that said something along the lines of couldn’t be displayed at this time. I even tried to go to their website, and from what I saw, support was only available through email. If this doesn’t work that’s where I will be headed next. I am increasingly frustrated and I am about to delete the app. I don’t want to, especially right now during quarantine because it helped me connect to some very great new internet friends. I hope this will reach someone at hoop so they can fix this for me because the app was great before this started.

A few suggestions:)
I think the idea of this app is pretty cool, I’ve just joined so I haven’t yet made many friends. I’ve noticed a few issues such as it took a day for me to even see any profiles, my bio doesn’t update when I change it sometimes, and things take very long to update and load. Not a huge deal, everything eventually loads up. I do have a few suggestions on how to improve the app though. I saw in another review that there used to be a search by distance feature, I think that should be brought back so we can find people in our area easier. I also think you guys should add a messaging feature right on the app, so that people can either request to message or request to get their snap. Last suggestion I have is that the profiles should really be checked out before being allowed to post. I’ve seen a large amount of girls using this app to sell explicit pictures, many of these girls under the age of 18. I just don’t think people should be able to use this app to advertise such activities as that is not the intentions of the app. Overall, I’m not too disappointed with this app. Like I said, it could use some improvements. But I’m sure with time things will come together. I think this app has a lot of potential and it’s off to a pretty good start:)

Super slow and unusable
This app used to be sooo great and amazing, I don’t know what is causing the slow down it’s so bad the app is unusable, it takes 10-30 minutes to load up a profile.. when you spend your gems on someone it doesn’t go through you have to wait 10-30 minutes and if you close the app you’ll have your gems back as if you never spent them. It’s definitely not my internet I have a 1 gig connection and it’s not my phone I have an X. Look into this please. Update: it’s getting worse and worse I don’t understand why the developers are like this they keep telling us it’s because a lot of people have been using the app lately.. now the app is freezing after a few seconds of opening the app, I think I’m just going to delete this app UPDATE 2: I deleted the app and reinstalled it now everything is working sooo smoothly I also noticed all of my notification history was all gone I easily had over 1,000 notifications and I guess that was the reason for the insane slowdown so if you want to avoid future errors delete those notifications once you add that persons snap.

update got me messed up
I really liked this app and was having a great time on it. Till this new update that messed me up. I have tried putting several pictures of me on it with my clear face and it has not worked at all. First I tried putting this mirror picture which did not work which I get cause it kinda showed my face but didn’t. Then I tried this picture that showed my face clear with the fendi filter from Snapchat which did not work and I was like ok, maybe it did not pick up my face because the filter. So then I try couple more pictures that don’t have filters such one with me and my friend and another one of me and the sun and then the last one with me goofing around. All these pictures you could see my face 100% and know it’s me. I just want that fixed cause this app really be giving me cute boys snaps so please help me out.

Going down hill
Hoop used to be one of my favorite apps. Now it is slowly becoming worse and worse. It seems as though every update made it worse and worse. First, they took away bios which was probably the largest blow to the overall enjoyment to the app and helped look for people more. Secondly, they made daily rewards less going from 200 to 100 but also adding in the purchasing of gems which was intentional but understandable. They had taken away being able to take 6 pictures and changed it to 3. Lastly, they’ve added the superchat and the other thing that’s like 2000 gems but also a ripoff. I’ve also noticed that since all these terrible updates it has led to an EXCESSIVE amount of bots advertising sexual images for kids and is very bad. At this point I would not recommend this app to anyone. Hoop used to be such a great app but since they’ve really sunk it. I’m not saying they have to add the same things as before but add features that helps you get better selection of people. I would enjoy talking more about the problems with the app to any developers who may read this.

Good app but a few suggestions
I’ve been reading the other reviews and from what I’ve gathered, the more updates, the less people liked it. I’m not sure why you would take bios away as it gives people a better understanding on who they’re swiping on. One of the things I enjoyed about Hoop was how I could put multiple pictures to give better insight to who I am, especially since I could do that in a bio. Also with this most recent update, all of the pictures I upload drop In quality, perhaps it’s just my phone but it’s still something that frustrates me. I also saw another review that brought up the idea of having a filter for people who live in the same state as you, I think this would be a great idea. While meeting people from across the state is nice, it’s almost impossible to meet up with them, or keep conversations going considering the time difference. I love meeting new people but it’d be nice if I could meet people closer to me. Like be able to select *within so many miles* or *same city*?

Met the love of my life
Downloaded the App in February because my friends told me to. I only really did it as a joke and wasn’t expecting much from it. I even joked about them trying to find people on there to date and how stupid it was. About a week or so in, this boy requested my snap. I accepted his request and after talking for a little we realised we were actually in the same school district. After talking for a few more weeks he asked me out on a date. I wasn’t really expecting much to come from it but he was a really nice guy so I went along with it to see what would happen. He took me to this restaurant and we really hit it off. After a few more dates he introduced me to his family and we made it official. We’re now coming up to 6 months together. I’ve never been so happy and my mental health hasn’t been this good in years. I really found the right person. Thank you Hoop!

I would like to rate this app. I had to give it five stars. Because of this app I met a lifelong friend. When I downloaded this app, I downloaded it as a dare with a couple of friends. As I kept swiping through people I saw a girl who was my age and shared some interests. I obviously asked for her snap. She added me back and eventually we began snapping every day! When my in life friends left, I was left with my girlfriend and a few people I knew, but didn’t trust. You know who never left me though? The girl I met on this app. My mother always said she didn’t approve of online people. But kids, you could meet a lifelong best friend online. I already know this friend is going to be in my life forever. I plan on meeting up with her soon too. We also made a pack that we would be in each other’s weddings (lol.) So why not meet a best friend through this app?

DO NOT USE THIS
My friend and I downloaded this app because we say it on TikTok and it said you can get more friends on Snapchat and connect with others so that’s what we went there for . So we started to get some people that we became friends with but unfortunately something bad happened to my friend she basically to make the story short got scammed the person hacked her Cashapp took her money mind you she is a single mom of two girls doesn’t have a job and they literally took petty change from her . Do not use it you can maybe meet a regular normal person like us ( me for example) that are just looking to make friends and not cause harm but over all this app is used by people that just will ruin your life in Seconds like it’s really sad now my friend is out of money who is going to get it back for her ? The people that made this app ? TBH the way I feel about this Is they are probably the ones maybe that are even doing this . Truly horrible experience. I wish there was a horrible rate but I am going to leave one star but trust me it’s just so I can post this because it’s not allowing me without rating this first .

Downhill
I used to be able to consistently watch ads and gain diamonds in order to send friend requests all the time. Recently, however, I’m barely able to watch more than a handful of ads before the button says “Searching ads” and never refreshes. It’s a shame because I’ve used this app for years and what kept me coming back was the fact that I could watch ads in order to use the app for its intended purpose. Now that I can’t watch ads, I can’t use the app nearly as much and there’s no way I’m paying out of pocket for diamonds. Also, notifications are different than they were before and sometimes to show up at all. The prior simplistic notifications such as “New match” and “Friend request accepted” were so much better because they were simple and got the point across. I’d love it if the app returned to how it was a few months ago so I can use it again. After all, I’ve spent countless hours using it and avid users of the app like me will start ditching it if it continues to go downhill.

Bios back please
I’ve been using the app for a while and I really like it, I still do. But there is an update and you no longer have a bio. I’m disappointed by this because that was where I really decided whether I wanted to request or not. Now it’s all about looks. But now if they have group picture I don’t know which one they are because it told me in their bio and they don’t have one anymore. And the bios also told me whether a guy just wanted nudes or not. It also told me who smoked, who wanted a freaky girl and who didn’t, and it told me their heights. I’m 6’2 and I would like to know who is taller than me. It also told me what state they were from because I really don’t want to talk to someone in California or Florida. It also brought in similar interests that I’m attracted to. The bios also let people know that I don’t send nudes. So if there is a way you could bring the bios back that would be nice. I understand this review is kind of everywhere and I’m sorry for that but it needs to be addressed.

Updates
This app used to be so good about 6 months ago and with each update there was either a feature taken away or the app just got slower and more unstable, you’ve taken away the ability to make a bio about yourself and to see other peoples interest and locations and other facts about them, but not only that you’ve taken away the ability to change your age which was an issue cause I had to make a new account cause I first put in my birthday wrong and it said I couldn’t change it and I had to make a new account, also you’ve taken away the search preference to see people within a certain amount of miles of your town or city, now that it doesn’t exist anymore you can only see random people around your country or the world, I’d much rather get to know people that live near me so we can hangout, overall this app has gotten a lot worse and I fear what will happen with another update, and the recent restrictions with profiles and settings is not what will make the app better, it makes it worse, this needed to be addressed so please take it into consideration.

It going down hill
Okay, we I first got Hoop it was fun, I meet some really cool people on their on of them being now the person I call every night, and talk every day. I was upset that they took away bios but, found a way to improvise. Doing that took away the ability to get to know someone before you could add them. Now, they have you limited to 3 photos for your profile, now it’s a little bit harder for people get to know you before adding you. I would under stand 5 or something but, 3 I don’t get. Personally the update to allow people to see your stories was a little iffy for me personally, and I haven’t really seen anyone use that feature. I’m sure a couple of people can agree with me that the next update should be adding back bios, and making the photo limit higher. It would also be really nice to be able to change the age range of people you see when your looking for friends.

MUST READ
I give the app 3 stars cause it’s fine but could use improvement. But if I had to rate my overall experience I would give it 1 star (cause zero isn’t possible). I haven’t even had this app for a day and I already had a little boy ask me if I send (what I’m assuming he meant was n00ds). His exact words “Do you send” and then try’s to Cary on wit the conversation we were having before that. Anyway in the end he got blocked and the other person I found on this app (who hadn’t done anything wrong yet) got blocked. And I deleted the app. I am normally not one to get apps like this but I thought it would be fun. Turns out I was wrong. I also normally don’t write reviews yet here this is. And I get that this isn’t the app creators fault but I just thought I would share my experience. Also for the app I think you should be able to talk inside the app and not have to push us over to another app (Snapchat).

Love it but.....
Well I absolutely love this app I made 451 Snapchat friends and it was amazing we talk all day now but we I first logged in I spinner the spiral too fast and the wrong for my birth date came up and it said I foundry change it and I was on level 23 and I was really upset when I had to start over just to put the date in but yeah The app is awesome you just can’t change your birthdate but that should change too we should have at least 2 chances to put the right birthdate on there and if those two are gone and we try to do it again we should get asked how old are you and what year you were actually born and to probably be confirmed by your parents like I’m a 2007 and I did 2005 like literally I was upset cause I couldn’t change it but I definitely recommend the app if you need more friends.

The Best Review Here 💯
This app is awesome for making friends if you consider yourself to be an outgoing person. I have added many people I have great conversations with and have made friends. The biggest problem on this app is that there are so many garbage scammers on here. Its a ring of them from what I can tell is based in the US, but they are not really US Americans. Its fairly easy to tell and is also very annoying if this problem isn’t fixed, the app will be labeled as a place for scams. That would be terrible for branding and would hate to see this new thing get ran into the ground. The thought behind this app has global potential, but will not be successful if they don’t handle these minor problems. It’s the loudest 10% that makes the name behind something. Like this review if you want a change. 🙌🏾🙏🏾

How I met my boyfriend off hoop!
I would say in about late January I had received a request from a boy so I finally added him back on my Snapchat and we just got to talking and soon enough we started to really like each other. The sad part was we lived 400 miles away. But on March 26th, 2020 he asked me to be his girlfriend. With covid booming at the time it really took us a long time to meet so August 25th was our first time meeting. Ever since then we have been making drives, half way, and even train rides. Been going on 1 1/2 years now and if I would have never seen this app advertised, I probably would have never met my future husband. And yes I can safely say that because I’m sneaky and found a ring! Thanks hoop for helping me literally find the love of my life!

Once great now fallen
When I first got the app it was running smoothly for me that is idk for anyone else but then it just went down hill I saw people said the same what I about to say but I still wanna say my piece at first I didn’t get many likes or sent many bc I would save up my gems and get like these cool backgrounds things eventually I had all backgrounds and I had lots of gem and idk I just like to save up my stuff and then spend good mount but not all of it but that’s not the point afterwards I started to see more and more bots so I knew from fake or real easily but then it just got bad I keep getting spam with likes and likes and I was getting irritated bc it was all bots then it got soo bad it starts to keep showing the same bots then it started to promote like sexual service and stuff like and lots of nudity so I had to delete it bc it was just getting bad and I really thought it would be good app but I got disappointed again I would say don’t get it save yourself some time and not waste it here

Good App Most of the Times
I think that this app since I’ve gotten it has been great. I’ve met almost 100 people that I wouldn’t normally have came into contact with all across the world. However, after this most recent update, they have taken away the option of creating a Bio for people to read. I think that the Bio option is great for people who want to get to know someone sorta before they even talk to them, and allows said person to even choose to want to talk to the other person as well. I think that the creators of this app should reinstate the Bio section and update to reflect some previous versions. Other than the most recent update, it was a good app. Totally recommend if you want to get to know people around the world and relate to people who we would normally would never meet in real life.

Great app but I have one suggestion
So this app is amazing, I use it daily and I’ve made many friends off this app! I’ve even met some of these friends and now we hang out daily. I’ve met some of my closest friends on this app, so don’t get me wrong I love this app, but with all things it could always get better. In the most recent update the developers removed the search by distance filter, I have not been able to find a single person in my state since then. I believe they should introduce a filter that allows the app to show you just people in your state, the user would have to select the state they live in on the settings tab and once they have selected a state they would now be able to use this filter to view all people in their home state.

Good at first..
This app was great when I first started using it 2 years ago. Actually I met my most memorable “girlfriend” on there. She wound up cheating later but that’s a different story 😁 anyways, even before and shortly after that, hoop continued to work fine, no bots, showed new people mostly in my state and diamonds were very easy to get (without paying) Because of a few personal experiences that I will Not disclose, I decide to take a year off from that sort of thing and focus more on other sorts of fun and finances instead. I come back to hoop after a year, only to find it spammed out with s*x bots and catphishers. Out of 50 profiles maybe 1-5 are actual people??? Maybe it’s the people using hoop, but I tend to think ownership changed or something happened where the people running the app just don’t care and let it go downhill. Hope this changes soon :/

Recommendations for the Hoop community
In the beginning using this app I wasn’t quite sure because I didn’t really meet people I can interact with but later on I started making new friends and it was really fun to be honest. Although I think you should let us add people on hoop, I have friends that had hoop, but I had no idea until I asked them, it would be amazing to add and have them on this app. But what I am sure of is that soon time will pass by and hoop will get many updates and it will be for the better. Also, even though adding your friends sound fun some wouldn’t want there privacy to get ruined and have ppl see who they talk to or have added, so maybe you can make it like snapchat only you know the ppl who you follow or have added. Thank you so much if you read my response and i would love to hear your feedback.

Glitched Screen
So I had added hoop when it was was popular on tik tok and have been using it ever since. There have been a couple issues regarding the app itself during this period, one of them being that when I go to look at a picture on a profile it glitches and doesn’t show me the picture or is just blank. Another issue ishtar recently I was just flipping through and it said no more profiles to be viewed. I went back the next day and it has had the same screen for about 2 weeks now. I have tried restarting the app a couple times now and still shows the same screen. I’m not completely sure if it is just mine or if it has been and issue for others. So there are just a couple bugs and issues other than that the app has been working perfectly and is a good app to meet new people.

Great but...
I really like the app. I’ve met many people and it’s a good app. One thing I would like to change that you should also be able to search by state because many of the people I have met are from different states. Also, I have tried to add face pictures with Snapchat filters on but it says that you need to include your face. I hope you can bring back the search by distance too! Also Idk what happened but most of my snaps I got from people have disappeared! Like if I scroll down until the bottom I can’t see all of them Also you should be able to search by name cause sometimes I see someone I like but accidentally skip them and I can’t go back cause it also goes back by one so having that option would be great!

This App is Ridden With Scammers, Sextortionists, and Bots.
I spent about 5 days on here when eventually I added someone who wanted to hook up. We “exchanged” and now they’re using my pictures as blackmail in an attempt to extort me for money. So now I’m stuck in a horrible situation with virtually no way out. Also, most of my requests during the first few days were from bots either advertising another dating site or just straight up malware. I’m not even sure why the report button exists if these problems are still so prevalent. I think I only made one legitimate friend through this app, most of the rest just add you and never actually bother to talk. This is probably due in part to the fact that the app incentivizes adding an immense number of people, which in turn makes it harder to form meaningful connections because your attention has to be split between all of them. If you want to make friends, go to a bar, school, or the workplace.

beyond slow.
profiles won’t even pop up for me. it keeps saying “huuh something’s wrong”, and i’ve only gotten 10 profiles to load the entire time i’ve had this. i have over 1,200 gems and i do not want to lose them by logging out, but i’ve tried everything else. shutting my phone down numerous times and closing out of the app numerous times doesn’t even work. this app needs work. update 1 : i’ve logged out and deleted the app at least 4 times. i’ve contacted the support team, and no one has gotten back to me, which is SO frustrating. i love the concept of this app and i just want to have fun playing it, not see a stupid loading screen anytime i want to find profiles.

Well...
So I've had this all for about 6 or 7 months and it was going great. No bugs or glitches of any kind. Until now. Which is why I'm giving this all 1 Star. About 2 or 3 weeks ago I'd get snap requests from people and I'd open the app and the daily diamond thing would get stuck on my screen, eventually it would go away, then after it would go away it click the tab on the top right to check snap requests and it would take forever for the "Give my snap" button to show but once it did I'd give them my snap... or at least I thought I did. Couple days would past and I would get a few more snap request. I go to the app and click the top right but this time it takes around 2 minutes for the request to load and I go back to some request from like weeks ago and the app never sent them and now on top of that I just got another snap request and the app has crashed on me 4 times in a row before I could even get the "Give my snap" button to load

Changes for the worse
I got this app at the beginning of quarantine and really liked it. The people that I added turned out to be overall really cool people. But now after so many updates and changes to users, the app has been ruined. Pictures on your profile are now so restricted; plus there is no more bio so I can’t get to know them a little bit before I add them or not. The part that is making me consider deleting the app the most is the amount of sex bots on the app. I know everything can’t be stopped but I’ll go on the app every couple of days (since I don’t like it anymore) and have 7-8 requests, but at least 6 of those are clearly sex bots and not actually a real person that wants to talk. I’ve even gotten requests many times from an account that advertises child porn and I’ve reported each account as it comes in, but they’ve clearly just been creating more and more fraudulent accounts. This app has absolutely just fallen apart in a short few months.

Hoop Rating
This app is very useful, entertaining, and super fun. It always gives you something to do and it’s a great way to meet new people! I have recently been experiencing some hacks or just some things that are not working. There has been repeating profiles or people that I have already accepted or deleted, but the profiles just keep coming back and I don’t understand why. This other reason I am not saying is the apps fault, but I would always get many requests and now I have not been getting any at all and I don’t know if that’s just me or there’s a hack and I haven’t been receiving them. I just saw that there was a new update and I realized maybe that was the reason. I updated the app and these problems are still occurring. If you could fix those problems for me that would be great! Thank you!

HELP
I’ve loved hoop since I’ve gotten it but one day I delete it and once I downloaded it back it started to malfunction. I wasn’t allowed to give anyone my snap and I couldn’t ask for someone’s snap. It wouldn’t even load! I deleted the app again and re downloaded it the next day and it kinda was better. The app would load quickly but I still couldn’t give my snap to anyone, the X button worked but when I pressed the “ask for snap” button it would show the loading sign but would never load! It would also allow my to press on other buttons such as the coins, the X, the go back, ESC. I really need you to fix this because I love this app and wanna continue using it!

I don’t usually do this but....
Maybe it is my age group (35 years old) the scammers, phishing, “premium channels”, and prostitutes are targeting... but I blocked 50 people in the span of 4 days. I was a really distracting waste of time as these scammers know how to reel people in and will have you on the hook for 3-4 days before they finally ask for money. I think I might have (maybe) matched with one real person. Hoop if you read this, please find a way to verify that users are real. I like the idea of this app and that it is a no pressure way of talking to people, but I don’t have infinite time to wade through all the fakes. Word to the wise: don’t give your birthday, where you live, favorite color, favorite food, mother’s maiden name, bank account info, your age... (lie by a year) I regret even sending pictures to those people (thinking they were real people) now they have my pics to scam others. (FYI, I did not give personal information) good luck and stay safe.

It’s good but there’s too many horny women
Whenever I first got the app it was cool it was working and everything and everything was chill but recently meaning the last couple of months I’ve noticed that the same pictures of women who claim to be 17 keep popping up and I’m not sure if they’re bots or if they’re just people trying to get nudes or sexual stuff like that when it’s an app made for kids to make friends so like I said there’s just too many bots or nude stuff but I’ve noticed something else just worse than that is that there’s sometimes pictures of CHILDREN who probably aren’t even teens bury but children who are probably still in elementary school I’ve see pictures of children in bikinis blurred with a website for child pornography and it’s sickening I haven’t went to the website but it’s just what I’ve seen please fix this now.

App is pretty great, but missing some key features
16 Y/O Male. I began using this app in November, before it began to gain traction. I’ve met some pretty cool people on here! Don’t download expecting to find your #1, however, you’re gonna go through a lot of people before you find someone you can really vibe with. This brings me to a few suggestions: Hoop should bring back the “search by distance” feature. With the quarantine, and people switching to online school, you'd probably want to find someone near you that you could meet IRL in the future. I’d also like to add and search for people with similar interests to me. That would aid in finding some people you can really connect with, without having to swipe endlessly. Besides that, I feel like this is an amazing app, and I’d definitely recommend people use it!

My experience
Within 30 minutes I already don’t like this app. I do not like it bc it reminds me of Bumble BF. One of the issues I have with the app is how they force you to create a social media account just to message someone. I don’t want social media. It’s not like I don’t like it, I hate it. I don’t want a social media, I already have a hard time meeting people as it is. I’m coming here not to be judged off of status. That’s literally what this app is based off of. How are you going to judge someone off there pictures / appearance when this app doesn’t allow people to write a bio. Then to just pay gems and create another social media just to swipe is ridiculous. This just another knock off dating app. Not a friend making app. Plz whoever is in the same situation as me. Don’t get the app or spend anything on it. Most of the people don’t even live in your area. It’s based off of the country you live in. It’s a scam.

I like it but needs some work
So I like the setup of the app and the features but I do not like how: 1. It won’t let you see new people after you “hearted them” and also you only get to ask a certain number of people while you’re swiping for their Snapchat unless you buy or obtain more diamonds. 2. There needs to be a cracking down on the whole inappropriate profile picture situation and also the weird people trying to scam people looking for sugar babies or sugar mommies and daddies. 3. I feel like the developers need to add a chat feature so you don’t waste your time and adding weird people who aren’t looking for just friendship,and also a interests section to match up with similar minded people. And last but if not least a way to fix the swiping system.

Hoop is how I met my husband
I joined hoop when I was 15 years old looking for friends well this guy added me (my now husband) and we started messaging me he lived in California and I lived in Georgia. We started talking in December of 2020 and we hit it off and he asked me to be his gf on January 10th. He flew down to see me for the first time in April of 2021 then he flew down again in July of 2021. I found out I was pregnant in September of 2021 with a beautiful babyboy and we got married December of 2023 I moved to California with him in 2022 and we been together ever since. Hoop is amazing I would have never met my now husband if it wasn’t for hoop so I have to say long distance can work fun want it to.❤️

Nothing but scammers and porn
I’ve been using Hoop for a week now. I joined because I was hoping to meet people and make friends, like advertised in the title. First got on and it looked good, requested a few people’s Snap accounts and then got some requests myself. Gave them my Snap and they added me immediately. It started out decently enough, but then they soon started to deviate sharply from normal conversation, asking me if I liked nudity and then sending me a link to their porn site. Something similar happened with literally every single person who requested my Snap and even with all the people who I requested. Not a single person wanted to have a conversation, they just sent me nudes, asked if I wanted to be their sugar baby, or sent me suspicious porn links. This is really out of control, there should be a way to monitor this stuff and reduce the amount of spammers. I for one am giving up.

Pretty good
Honestly didn’t have high hopes for this app but it’s straight forward and serves its purpose. I’ve met some pretty chill people on here and I haven't seen any creeps or predators after using this for about a month so that’s a plus. Edit: So as soon as I turned eighteen I was only shown profiles who are listed as 17-21 which I liked cause it was kind of difficult to find people my own age before and I’m not here to make friends 14 year olds (no offense to any 14yos). The downside though is that there are a lot more suspicious people in 18+ that are clearly older than the intended age range for this app. I got someone asking me to be her sugar baby within the first day I was switched lol. Other than that, like I said, it’s a decent app but that’s something to be cognizant of.

Excellent, speedy service when contacted!
When setting my age with this recent update, I accidentally set the year of my birth to 2001, when, in reality, it is 2002. I did not notice this until after the fact. Upon noticing my mistake, I also realized that I could not change it back to the correct date. I thought all hope was lost, when I noticed the “Assistance” option in my settings. I reached out to Team Hoop via e-mail, and the problem was solved in virtually no time at all! In a matter of about 5 minutes, I was able to change my settings to the correct age, all because I reached out to the Team. Thank you Team Hoop for speedy service with a smile! :)

Ok app
It’s a app that is a good idea and it’s desperate for a lot of people but I was hit by females that where asking for money and I was hit by bots trying to ask for money, asking for nudes and that’s not cool to me. The purpose of the app was for friends and I got horny females asking for money now that’s not cool. Like how do you fix that? 5 out of star idea app. I wish I could create a app, but it’s a 3 for me because the design is cool and making friends is cool but I was hit by so many weird people and I’m getting so many weird messages that it just spoils the app, the people are weird and I guess this was fun at a time or maybe it’s just me as a person and I’m getting hit with bo friends. It’s cool to meet people online but it’s more natural in person. I’m sorry but this app is just, yeah. Waste of my time.

Never got to try it :(
I can not fully rate this app, but i never got to try it. It always said loading profiles and none ever loaded. i wish i could've utilized it Edit: So the app works occasionally, not really at night but it seems to work in the morning. I love this app but it is very bugged. First, the times in works and doesn't is kind of annoying. Second, it won't let me experience my preferences. I can input them but when I go back to matches, it has the loading screen but after a while it doesn't even load. Third, today I was on the app and did some swipes, already had matches. Later, I went on the app and all my 150 gems were gone and so were my matches like people whose snaps I received. Kinda bummed because I was saving those gems, and I never got to add all my matches.

Ruined with ads
Hoop is an amazing concept that was executed in a great quality way. It has helped me find a lot of people which I have even befriended some. However, over the last couple month using the app without buying the subscription it offers is impossible. Every time you add or skip someone an add for the subscription pops up. This makes no sense to me because it has no real purpose. This unnecessary ad spamming has caused me to delete the app and in no way made me want to purchase the subscription more. I’m not sure what successful marketing scheme bullies it’s consumers into either buy its products or stop using the service all together. In the end, I do not recommend this app. There are much better options out there that can be used for free, and don’t pressure you with purchases.

Good idea, Terrible execution
Most, if not all, profiles are fake. There is constant child pornography being advertised. Constant profiles just selling sex, scamming, or attempting to get you to sign up to a sex website. This app is really annoying on so many levels. The layout is very clunky, and not at all, well rounded. It is an obvious cash grab from the development team that does not care how this app is ran nor the security being placed on the app. The app is falsely advertised as you are going to be “making friends“, but really all you are meeting is fake profiles of girls who are really just some random Asian or African guy (not even trying to sound racist, just really who it is) attempting to get money from you. The app has a long way to go to earn any respect from any of its customers. Being a developer myself, I feel slightly disrespected by even giving this app a chance.

Crap app don’t install
Appears to be unauthorized addin for Snapchat not actually a standalone as it implies it makes you go through a bunch of hoops, pun very much intended and you get into it not only is it not very intuitive whatsoever but if you don’t use Snapchat it’s worthless and of course it doesn’t tell you that which any reputable or honest company would tell you upfront and make sure that you have your Snapchat login as part of the sign-up process I’m not gonna use Snapchat so just another dishonest way this company fraudulently takes money from you after looking online and seeing complaints it looks like there are a lot of underage Snapchat users they get pulled into hoop that is considered illegal content so this app is actually facilitating exploitation of children and they know it. Next complaint is not to apple that also knows they are doing this…

Request are not showing up?
Earlier today I was on hoop and Got a notification that someone had requested my snap. I went to the request tab on the right and there wad nothing there. It just says you are all caught up, which i am not because someone just requested my snap. Usually even if you have gone through all of the accounts that have requested you can still see who has given you their snap and who has asked for your snap. Well not for me. There is nothing there and I cannot accept request or add people. I tried logging out and deleting the app and re-downloading it and it did nothing. This issue is very annoying and should be looked into. Is anyone else having this problem?

What the heck?!
So I was doing just fine until I went to change my photos I took down most of the ones I had and replaced them with edited photos of me with anime characters to widen the scope of people adding me and then i went about my business adding people back and giving people my snap it wasn’t until I left the app and re opened the app that my account was suddenly disabled for inappropriate behavior I have waited for about a month to see if anything changed I have also deleted and downloaded the app again but nothing changed so for anyone changing the photos on your account be careful. Other than what happened to me this app is good for meeting people all over the world and different types of people to.

yea no
Soo I downloaded this app bc I wanted to make friends so I was going through the things to make an account and it said socials and I thought that I could skip it but I can’t. I just wanna make friends without using social media also I don’t have TikTok or Snapchat bc I have those kind of parents. What about the ppl who don’t have social media like me and just want to make friends. I think that it should be optional to have their TikTok or snapchat bc it’s low key dumb and idk anyone who will make an entire account just to make friends. Ik some ppl will but I won’t. so If the “developers” or whatever are reading this pls change it bc I wanna make friends without having TikTok or Snapchat and I know that other ppl want to as well. if you read this entire thing without skipping stuff than Congratulations for reading me rant about stuff😅 have food kind human🍕🍲🍦🍓🥖
