Our Review

When Tinder was released in 2012, the landscape of dating sites and apps shifted completely. In just a blink of an eye, personality tests and lengthy questionnaires were removed. Mobile dating apps attempted to replicate Tinder’s success and have their own versions of “swiping” to your match, giving you full control.

However, it seems that another mobile app is attempting to move the landscape once more by encouraging users to get to know the person behind the photo. Clikd, a UK-based app, brings back personality quizzes and puts emphasis on personality through the use of attractive visuals and creative functionalities. Instead of basing compatibility through looks and split-second attraction alone, Clikd works to have you take personality quizzes made by other users. If you can pass their quiz, you match. If not, well, you are simply not meant to be.

Clikd also throws out the idea of dealbreakers, a revolutionary tool that mixes the old school type of online dating with the convenience of modern technology. Through dealbreakers, you get to know if the person you are attracted to share the same hobbies, beliefs, and personality type.

While Clikd admits that through this method, you might not be getting a ton of matches, it champions the idea of “quality over quantity.” The app guarantees that the few matches you do get are sure to be compatible and ideal for you.

Can Clikd actually pull it off and deliver on its promises? Or is it just another novelty app that only sounds good on paper? Is it worth investing time and money in this dating app? We took a closer look at Clikd to see if it clicked with us. Read on below for the in-depth review of Clikd.

  • In order to register you need to fill out a personality test
  • Gets up to 30,000 monthly visits
  • Members are mostly from the United Kingdom followed by the US
  • Majority of the users are aged 25-34 years old
  • There are slightly more female members than male ones

Clikd generates up to 30,000 monthly visits. Most of these visits come from the United Kingdom since the app was built and launched there, followed by the United States, Canada, and Australia. 30% of the members are between 25-34 years old while 25% are aged between 18-24 years old. Suffice to say, the majority of the app users are on the younger side which comes as no surprise since young adults tend to dominate mobile apps.

Although it seems to be a pretty even number between male and female members, there are just a tad more women active on Clikd than men. If you are someone looking to match with a pretty girl, you have higher chances of landing real matches, should you pass their set personality quizzes.

Most of the members we encountered are real people who are truly intent on finding their perfect match. Since the registration process and profile review seem to be quite extensive, you wouldn’t find as many fake profiles on Clikd compared to other apps. Also, the members appear to be quite active and eager in getting to know one another.

Signing Up at Clikd

clikd sign up
  • Takes less than 5 minutes to register
  • Signing up via Facebook is available
  • If registering via FB, account must be active for over a year and must have at least 50 friends
  • New accounts get reviewed by moderators within 2-3 days
  • Photo upload is required
  • Responsive and active members

Clikd is quite simple to set up. You can choose to connect your Facebook account and already have your basic information filled out right away. However, in order to link your FB, your account must be active for a year and has at least 50 friends. It is another step to ensure that whoever signs up on Clikd are real people with a real intention of meeting and mingling with others.

If you choose to create an account from scratch, you can use the long method. It is not tedious. You have to fill out your name, email, birth date, height, gender, and intent. Once you are done with that, you move on to the more specific details. You have to add your tag line, education level, work, and upload at least two photos of you. The last step is to pin your location so suggested matches are guaranteed to be nearby.

Once that is all done, the real fun begins. You will be asked to pick out three to five interests from quite an extensive list of options. Options include adventure, arts, celebrities, creativity, food, gaming, humour, lifestyle, and so many more. Be as specific as you can. The app’s algorithm matches you with people who share your interests, increasing your chance of finding an ideal match.

After choosing your interests, you will move on to “Deal Breakers.” Deal Breakers are personalized quizzes which are typically consisted of three questions. These questions feature two images and a sentence. For example, the sentence goes like “To smoke or not to smoke.” The two photos would show a man smoking and a man who doesn’t. If you are a smoker, you would choose the one smoking and so on.

Setting your Deal Breakers enables you to pick the answers you want your perfect match to give, narrowing down your options. Once they pass your quiz, it is only then that they could interact with you. Once you start interacting, you already know that you have things in common, ensuring quality matchmaking.

Making Contact on Clikd

clikd making contact
  • Must pass a Deal Breaker quiz before matching
  • People near your location are displayed to you
  • Send up to 3 likes and 50 recommends daily for free
  • You can give Second Chances to people who failed your quiz
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone
  • There is a chatroom
  • You can only send them a message once you have both passed each other's Deal Breakers.

To get great daily recommendations, you must specify the age range, gender, and distance from your location. Once you have these factors specified, the app fine-tunes its suggested matches. If you are attracted to someone’s picture and see a great dating potential, you can click on their profile and take their test. These personality tests are the aforementioned Deal Breakers. You need to pass each other’s Deal Breakers before you are matched and can chat. Soon, you will get “nudges” from people because they want you to take their test. These nudges are one of the app’s premium features.

The Deal Breakers allow you to get to know the person behind the attractive photo and see how compatible you are. For example, you are asked where you are often found on Friday nights. Two pictures would appear. One is at a classy restaurant, suggesting a more quiet and relaxed night out. The other is at a rowdy bar, implying a more fun and outgoing personality. Should you choose the rowdy bar option and that so happens to be the one picked by the user, you already know that you both like to party and dance your hearts out. It is a deeper way of getting to know another person, and not just basing attraction solely on looks alone.

Although, this system of matching can also as a double-edged sword. Though it might seem as if you are getting higher quality matches, the reality is, you are getting fewer options as well. Because you are getting a lot fewer choices, the small number of matches you have might not automatically be the right fit for you.

When it comes to online dating where numbers determine your success, Clikd’s limitations can make it difficult to turn matches into actual dates in real life.

Clikd Profile Quality

  • New profiles get reviewed by moderators
  • No fake accounts
  • Profile information can be edited
  • You can upload your own photos and create personalized Deal Breakers
  • All profiles are detailed and completely filled out
  • Click on profiles to answer Deal Breakers

Clikd prides itself on making sure that all of its members are actual people looking for matches. After all, you can use your Facebook account to sign up, granted that it has been active for over a year and has at least 50 friends. If you choose to build an account from scratch, your profile has to be reviewed by the moderators. You also have to upload real photos of yourself. These precautions make it difficult to create spammy accounts with intention of scamming people.

Indeed, as we checked out Clikd, all of the profiles we have encountered are made by real people. The profiles are also quite detailed and informative. We had a lot of fun answering personality quizzes. Because of the app’s matchmaking process, we strongly advise you to take as many personality quizzes as possible to increase your chances of getting more matches.

If you find the pre-existing questions and answers to be not enough, you can easily upload your own photos and create your very own Deal Breakers. This way, you can customize the quiz to reflect your personality better and find your ideal match. You can exercise your creativity by personalizing the Deal Breakers on your profile.

Clikd Real Life Review

Honestly, I got tired of Tinder and other swipe-based mobile dating apps. It all started to feel very superficial. Sure, I got matched with this hot looking dude but when we chat, his personality is just so dull. There’s just no spark. It got me thinking about dating in general. Do I just go on looks alone with no guarantee if we can fit into each other? That’s where my mindset was at when I stumbled upon Clikd. Because we have these Deal Breakers, not only do I get to have fun answering quizzes but I also make sure that I have things in common with the person I match with. I have had a few matches for the past month I have been using the app. Sure, I get fewer matches compared to other apps but the conversations I have with Clikd users are far more substantial. I will continue using this app. It has been a lot of fun so far.

Design and Usability

Clikd takes creativity and photography to the next level. Not only does it use photographs creatively in incorporating them in their quizzes, but the user experience is one of the best we have experienced in mobile apps so far. If you are someone who likes creative visuals and easy usability, Clikd might be the app made for you.

You can easily navigate your way around the app. If you see someone you like, you can take their quiz in just one tap. Answering quizzes is made simpler as well. You can just choose between the two photos presented before you. It uses the strength of visuals quite well.

Its modern design and playful colour palette make this app attractive for a younger target market. Indeed, most of the members of this app appear to be between 18-24 years old. However, older people need not worry. As we said earlier, the app is quite easy to use and very straightforward. It doesn’t have a learning curve. You can easily master using this app in just a few sessions.

Clikd FAQ

Usability

How do you match on Clikd?

To match with someone on CLiKD, you both have to pass each other’s dealbreakers. This means you both have to get at least 2/3 of their dealbreakers correct.

If you’ve passed someone’s dealbreakers and you want them to take yours, the quickest and most effective way to do this is to send Superlikes. This will send them a notification that you’ve passed their dealbreakers and when they click on it, they’ll be taken straight to your profile, where they can decide if they want to take your test.

If they do decide to take your test and pass, then it’ll be a match. If they fail your test, Clikd has the second chance feature (premium feature) which will give them one extra dealbreaker to try and get right.

I have no matches on Clikd. What do I do?

CLiKD is all about quality over quantity, which is why it functions using the dealbreakers instead of swiping. If you have no matches, there are a number of things you can do to improve your chances of getting a match:

  • You can add more information to your profile, such as filling out your Tagline, Job/Passion or Story
  • You can change your pictures to show off your best angles and try pictures that tell a story about you
  • You can change up your questions, it’s possible that people could be failing your test
  • You could widen your age range or distance settings

All of these could help. Remember, the more personality you show, the more people will want to know about you!

CLiKD makes it their duty to check user accounts. When a new account is made on CLiKD, it’ll pass through moderation within its first 2-3 days to confirm that it meets the safety standards and follows community regulations.

As well as this security management, the app employs personality based dealbreakers help avoid fraudsters. It’s an added layer that bots won’t be able to fake.

If you come across a profile that you deem inappropriate or offensive, use the ‘Block user’ or ‘Report user’ function and the moderators will take the necessary next steps.
