ZappyDate.com gives users a fun way to speed date. Users are given the option of signing up or signing in anonymously, which is a nice touch. Most sites are anxious to get the user’s information and commit them to an account at the very least. The site tries to hook users up with compatible matches quickly, providing a timer when no match is found that indicates when the user should return and try again. Users can manage their ZappyDate profiles to help them find someone special that matches their preferences. The system is very simple, although it seems a bit rushed to find a serious match for someone who is looking for a long term relationship rather than a rushed hook up. For some users, this is a great way to find a date. For others, it may seem a little too fast paced for comfort.Show more screenshots »
ZappyDate was created to provide a different way to find a date online. There are many other dating websites that take a different approach to the task of searching for a mate. The creators of Zappy Date wanted to present an easy to use alternative that allows users to speed date. ZappyDate is still in beta, so it is possible that more changes could be in store in the future.
The way ZappyDate works is what really makes the site stand out. Other dating websites allow user to search for compatible dates through an existing data base, or helps them find a few potential matches. The process can take a little time. ZappyDate helps users find a date much more quickly.
The ZappyDate website welcomes users with a colorful, yet simple design. The site is complimented by grey hearts and a bold, red banner. New users are pleasantly surprised by the simple log in option. They can either create an account or log in anonymously. Going the anonymous route takes seconds and directs the user to the dashboard. During our test there were no other users to chat with.
ZappyDate gives users two log in options to choose from. The first, which was already mentioned, is the anonymous log in. After clicking the grey “Sign in anonymously” button along the right hand side of the center of the homepage, the user is asked to provide a gender and gender preference for their potential mate (boy, girl or boy and girl). After submitting the information, the user is directed to site. Users can also sign in through their Facebook profiles. This is done by clicking the blue Facebook button found to the left of the anonymous sign in button. The user will have to enter their Facebook log in information to access Zappy Date.
For now, anyone can use ZappyDate for free. There are no subscription fees, which is usually a common find among dating websites. Users can create an account through Facebook quickly and for free. This is a nice touch, but considering the simplicity of the application, the only good option. ZappyDate is still in beta, so it is possible that paid memberships could be added further down the road.
ZappyDate is helpful for spontaneous individuals who want to speed date. The site is easy to use and available for free. Signing up takes no time at all so users can quickly get started and begin looking for potential mates.
