The Badoo.com app offers a range of free features that allow people to meet others close by for both casual or serious relationships. The well-designed app, which works on iOS, Android and Windows phones is easy to register for, letting you use Facebook or Google+ profiles to speed up the process. It then asks you for some details on who you are and the type of person you are looking to meet before making matches with people who are local to you.
You can also choose to find people by searching profiles or letting Badoo suggest people for you, who you then talk to anonymously. With 47 languages supported, communicating with your matches should be pretty easy. Badoo also offers other features which can be fun to use, including Encounters which brings up profiles for you to rate as a yes, maybe or no (those you mark as yes are told you are interested in them) and a photo rating option where you score people based on how they look in their photo. The latter is probably not for the faint of heart, however. One final feature is ‘bumped into’ which lets you see other users local to you, even if you aren’t a match.

Badoo.com App Prices
The Badoo.com app is free to register for and use some features on, as outlined above. There is also a premium option, with a monthly membership of $5.99, or you can buy credits. Credits can be used to purchase specific things such as a featured profile, priority in searches or more encounters. They can be purchased in packages of 100, 550, 1250 or 2750 credits and, the more you buy, the less they cost: 100 credits costs $2.99 and 550, $7.99.
This app is aimed squarely at single people looking to meet other single people in their area, primarily for casual dating. It’s free and easy to use, with a reasonably priced – if somewhat confusing – membership plan. However, with the range of free features available, it may be this is enough for most users. There are no reports of scams on the site, which seems safe and secure to use. However, those looking to remain anonymous should probably proceed with caution as the chat feature that lets you stay hidden does not always work.
