“Don’t download it, you’ll regret. It’s such a waste of time and money. Time, because no one ever responds, except for bots with automatic messages, and money, because the app still charges you even if you cancelled before the end of the trial period! Crazy. Why to describe the feministic idea so brightly and then let women down? It’s not decent. Go and use any other hookup app, but not this one!” (Tory, 34, New York City)
“I found so many bugs for only one day of using, it was hard to believe. It doesn’t care about you at all, it just sends endless bots to you. It doesn’t save your search parameters, your location, or your preferences. It crashes, it keeps the scammers in your inbox without being able to delete them, and much more. I even found it hard to cancel my trial and completely delete the app. Avoid HUD as much as you can. It’s not worthy of your nerves. You will find much more effective platforms.” (Andrew, 28, Denver)
Usually, when something is called number one, you should check it twice. HUD is exactly such a case. With such a noble and actual, important concept, it could do better, but the developers obviously didn’t manage. It would be too bad and cynical if they combined such a massive social concept of women’s freedom with a banal usage of commercial robots or a cooperation with scammers. So we presume they just didn’t provide the proper technical security and allowed to fraudulent accounts to become an absolute majority. There almost aren’t positive reviews from the users at all, only complaints. For sure, we cannot rate high such an app and we cannot really recommend it to people.
The idea of HUD was good and fair but it needed some more technical effort. Nowadays, the majority of social projects connected with women’s rights, usually win. They get an appropriate support and are well-developed. Women are in favour in a today society and such projects become successful easier, with a bigger guarantee. But the HUD app missed the chance. It still isn’t clear, why. The owners would get much more profit if they were diligent and professional enough… or let’s say, more caring towards this important concept.
But even aside of that problem with the bots and scammers, the app isn’t very innovative or intriguing: its features are very plain. There’s nothing cool or trendy about it that could attract the youngsters, neither it’s reliable enough to make older people like it. It’s just one big imperfection, this app.
Therefore, as a summary, we find the HUD platform weak and inappropriate for users of any age who are seeking hookups and casual relationships. In fact, nothing can be settled or organized through this app and it’s nearly useless. We do not exclude the possibility though that developers will eventually fix the flaws and let independent women find as many sexual adventures as they want. But it doesn’t seem to be a very close in time perspective.
