DOWN App is the most honest dating and hookup app. With DOWN App, you can choose whether you want a more committed relationship or more like a one night stand (ONS). Along with dating apps like Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge, DOWN is listed as a top 20 dating app in the U.S. As the top dating app on Android and iOS, we are open minded; we view sexuality as a healthy, natural, and crucial aspect in relationships. We are adults, so sexual intention and attraction shouldn't be shamed for (especially as the best hookup app). We want you to have fun with your dating app matches, and we believe it's healthier if people are up-front with what they want by specifying if they want to GET (a) DATE or GET DOWN.

You can download DOWN Dating app on Android (Google Play) and iOS (App Store). After it’s downloaded, you can sign in by Facebook, Apple, Google or Phone number.

Glad you asked! Unlike other top dating app or hookup apps, you don't swipe left or right to get a dating app match when using DOWN Dating App - you swipe up or down. Swiping up means you want to GET (a) DATE, while swiping down means you want to GET DOWN with your dating app matches. If you're not interested in a potential dating app match, you can swipe left and move on - but don't worry! You can still come back to their profile if you changed your mind.

Swiping up to Get DATE means you are looking for something more serious; a potential partner or the start of a committed relationship, or even just a date night where sex is still in question. Swiping down to Get DOWN means you are looking for one night stand (ONS), friends with benefits (FWB) or open relationships - you're not on the hunt for something serious.

DOWN Dating App's feature Snap Match is a simple, random chat matchmaking system that allows people to find a virtual human connection and date internationally.

Go to Settings and make sure your Push Notifications are on! If you match with the same intentions (e.g. You both say GET DATE), we'll tell you.

Not to worry, if you both swiped in different directions, DOWN Dating App will still set you up as dating app matches and notify you. We'll let both of you know that as dating app matches, you both like each other and should have a deeper conversation first.

Yes, DOWN Dating App lets you browse by gender, location, and sexual preferences. We take into account a few factors in order to show the best potential dating app match for you. For the location, make sure you turn on your GPS for the app!

We want you to be comfortable and safe on DOWN Dating. To report dating profiles, tap on the right side of the profile until you reach the dating profile bio page. There's a button beside their name that allows you to report the user if they have inappropriate pictures/bio or they are underage. If this doesn't solve your issue, please contact us.

Simply search for that specific person in your messages, swipe halfway left and tap “Unmatch". All set! Crisis averted.

Sadly, this action cannot be undone. With that said, please double check before you unmatch someone to make sure you don't accidentally miss out on the one!

DOWN Dating App is not a dating app for teens, so first off we've got to make sure you're older than 18. If not, that is why you can't start DOWN Dating. If you are older than 18 and are still experiencing a problem, please close the application and try again or contact us at ops@downapp.com, we'd love to help!

We're sad to see you go ☹️! You can now disable your account from the settings page in the app.
