Online dating is fun and trendy, but there is a major problem that haunts even popular apps such as Tinder: spam. Fortunately, smart people (like yourself) quickly realize what’s going on and move on. That’s not the case with Elimi.
Elimi has joined the agglomerated market of online dating with the aim of fixing the spam problem – think Tinder with CAPTCHA. What I specifically liked about this app is that it aims to bring back the essence of online dating – in-person interactions – and places the chat into context right from the start of the conversation.
This is a hard task, but the developers behind Elimi managed to solve it cleverly: After creating your profile, you will need start a “game” similar to good old “Truth or Dare”. You will ask three simple questions – it can be anything you like, and I’ve found a variety of great questions during my testing – and the person interested in your profile will need to answer those. You are in charge: You decide to either accept or reject it.
The same goes for you when you are looking for ladies or men nearby: First, you need to answer the person’s question, and if she/he accepts it (or let’s say, if you “win” the “game”), chat is turned on, and you can start a conversation. The best thing of all is that you know it’s a real person on the other side, so from that moment on, it all depends on you.
The app has an easy-to-use interface, but unfortunately isn’t yet optimized for iPhone 6, and I noticed slight design glitches, but that’s something that can be fixed in a future update. Also, as the app’s user base grows, so will the games, which means more chances to play and meet people around you. The app is available for free, and if you are looking to meet smart people (like yourself), this could be the app you have been looking for. Elimi for iOS [download link] / Android [download link]
