iPair 聊天交友appGeneral description

iPair is an Asian dating app launched by Sunfun Info Co, Ltd. with over 9 million users. It is reportedly one of the biggest Asian dating apps.

 

Pros:

  • Vast database but mostly within a few states of the US and Taiwan
  • Available in multiple languages
  • Inviting a friend to the app gives you 5 days VIP subscription
  • Has a desktop version

Cons:

  • Not really user-friendly or convenient
  • Demands many kinds of authorization but logging in often fails
  • Won’t work without the FB account
  • Automatically lists the user under the wrong race, sex, or location, without the opportunity to change that
  • No video call option
  • Some accounts are fake
  • Many duplicate or inactive accounts
  • Chatting and messaging even with the matches are paid options
  • Matching by an exact location isn’t effective
  • Works with glitches and errors
  • No such big countries as Pakistan in the city/country selection
  • The biggest chance to find a match is only within 3 biggest locations in the US
  • Never suggests enough matches

Users’ opinions:

“iPair is a pure disappointment for me, it used to work much better before. And anyway I can find a few matches only when I am in the New York city or in Taipei. I am either there or there for work. But I guess people from other cities or countries couldn’t say anything good about using iPair. Me personally I had to re-register my account several times because it failed and failed. They also ban without a reason, even after payment. I seriously think it’s better to use one of the general dating sites than specialized Asian apps, they are so poorly developed and equipped.” (Tingwei, 26)

 

Expert’s conclusion:

iPair is a hardly criticized Asian dating app but we have to be reasonable and fair while analyzing those critics. The absolute majority of users aren’t happy either with logging in via Facebook or the price. But both practices are very common for the dating apps nowadays so there’s no reason to complain. Of course, logging in via Facebook isn’t a guarantee at all, since many real people don’t have FB accounts while many scammers do have fake FB accounts. FB easily allows creating fake profiles and never prevents that. This practice should be stopped but we won’t talk further here about that.

The more important problem is the absence of popular locations/destinations in the basic list, as well as the lack of active legit profiles, solved technical issues and so on. The dating app can and should be paid, but it should provide a qualitative service in return. If it doesn’t happen, then it’s definitely a warning sign.

This app is just ok if not to call it a leader and not to expect much from it. It is more or less effective in three biggest cities of the US and in Taiwan, that’s from where are coming those 15-20% of positive reviews. But even there, like everywhere, iPair works with considerable bugs and errors. Fake accounts are also present, so one should be an experienced online dater to avoid the danger. Judging from all that, we should be happy that at least some of the users are legit and at least some of the functions work properly. Thank you, iPair. There are much worse commercial dating apps in the market than this one.

To be realistic, we recommend this app only to 25 – 45 y.o. people who are interested in Asian dating but who are located in the most populated cities of the USA or Taiwan; who have enough experience and patience to deal with the buggy, partially legit app; and who have some stable income because nothing can be done on iPair without the money. Our rate is “average or a bit below average”.
