Whether you’re looking for a short term fling or a long term relationship, you certainly don’t face a lack of options when it comes to online dating.
Xotica is a beautifully designed dating app that makes it easy to locate singles in your area.
Created by BAAANET IT, this social networking app is a pleasure to use and includes a few useful tools to make your search easier than ever.
Concept and Functionality:
One important thing to keep in mind is very few online dating services and apps conduct background checks or other verification procedures to make sure people are who they say they are. Xotica addresses this in a disclaimer that you must accept before you can use the app.
Once you’re in, Xotica gives you a surprising range of options for customizing your personal profile. You have the basics such as who you’re looking for and your preferences, but you can also disclose whether you’re looking for a casual encounter or a serious relationship right off the bat.
This helps eliminate any miscommunication for others who might be viewing your profile because you can set search filters based on these preferences.
In terms of usability, Xotica is very easy to navigate and figure out. All of the options you’ve come to expect, such as contacting, “winking”, or ignoring, are right at your fingertips.
The biggest, and perhaps best, feature of Xotica is the realtime proximity alert system. Yes, it sounds a bit more like something out of a spy movie or a video game, but it’s designed to help you locate matches while you’re out and about.
This is a great option for users who aren’t always browsing available matches. It also works for users in big cities who are always on the go.
One drawback to Xotica is this feature (and the app itself) relies heavily on a large user base. Hopefully Xotica becomes popular enough that it catches on like wildfire so users outside of urban areas have a better chance of finding matches.
Xotica is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. I couldn’t track down any in-app purchases or special features to unlock, which is really good news for users who want a completely free dating app.
Overall, Xotica is an app I highly recommend if you’re in search of a dating app that’s upfront and clear about what is offered. You can use it to match with anyone with any interest, so I highly suggest giving it a try.
Xotica requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
