Hitch app is a dating app that allows your friends to introduce you to someone they believe will be a great match for you. I believe the name comes from the movie “Hitch” about a dating coach played by Will Smith. If you didn’t watch the movie, you should.
To start using the app you will need to download it and set up your profile. After that, you will be able to send a “Meet” suggestion to a friend. If they accept it, they will be able to chat with a people you suggested. This is something similar to a blind date in real life except that you can chat with a person before meeting in a real life. You can also meet someone based on common interests and location. If you both click meet to each other, you will be able to start chatting. To meet someone on Hitch, swipe right. If on another hand, you want to skip a person swipe left.
Similarly to many other dating apps, Facebook is used to create your profile. However, to use Hitch, you will also have to use your phone number as a login. This is done to ensure that all the users are real. One of the problems with most dating websites is that many users are fake and that’s why asking users to use their verified phone number as a login might be a great way to eliminate all the spammers/scammers.
Additionally, to having features listed above, Hitch has suggestion cards with users you might be interested in. Another interesting thing about Hitch is its reputation scale which ranks and the higher reputation you have the more people you will be able to meet. Your reputation will highly depend on how active you are using Hitch, more matches and views you have, higher your reputation.
One of the fears most people have about using dating apps that are connected to their Facebook accounts is that app might post their dating activity to the Facebook profile. Fortunately, most apps I know, including Hitch will never post anything on your Facebook profile so you shouldn’t worry even if you arranged 5 dates in the same day with different people, you stud 🙂
