DOWN is the best hookup app to meet locals nearby. We are the most honest dating app — you can choose whether you want a date or a hookup. As the best dating app for the open minded, we are sex positive and view sexuality as a healthy, natural, and crucial aspect in relationships. We are adults, so sexual intention and attraction shouldn't be shamed for. 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 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 dating app or hookup apps, you don't swipe left or right when using DOWN 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 change your mind.

Swiping up to Get DATE means you are looking for something more serious; a partner, the start of a committed relationship, or even just a date night. Swiping down to Get DOWN means you are looking for a one night stand, friends with benefits (FWB), or just a quick hookup — you're not on the hunt for something serious.

DOWN App’s feature Snap Match is a simple, random matchmaker that allows people to find virtual chemistry and chat 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 App will still set you up and notify you. We'll let both of you know that you both like each other and should have a deeper conversation first.

On DOWN App, you can do so by going to the Visitors tab and tapping the You Liked page.

Currently, you have to be a DOWN App VIP member to see who is interested in you. To do so, go to the Visitors tab and then tap the Visitors page.

Nearby Picks are curated results based on your preferences. You will receive new results every day if we have good ones to send you! Over time, whether you’re looking for a committed relationship, a date night, friends with benefits (FWB) or a one night stand, DOWN App will learn and we'll provide you better potential dating app matches.

Yes, DOWN App lets you filter by gender, location, and sexual preferences. We take into account a few factors in order to show the best potential 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. To report dating profiles, tap on the right side of the profile until you reach their 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 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.
