Review of MPWH iOS AppRating 4.5/5 by Josh
MPWH (Meet People With Herpes) is a dating app targeted specifically for people with herpes. The application aims to simplify dating for people with herpes in an intuitive manner. The app is not complicated to you, and has some good features even in the unpaid version. This application is suitable for almost all iOS platforms such as iPhone, iPad and iPods.
How the app works
The app has a minimalist look that ties in with their idea of making it a no-brainer to use. Users have to sign up after downloading the app and go through a simple verification process. The more details you add to your profile, the better chances you have of finding matches.
As mentioned, this app focuses mainly in matching users up with other members, which makes it a straight forward app. You get a real-time updated list of members that are a potential good match for you. If you are interested in someone, you can then send a wink or an email. A great part of the application is that users can upload many pictures on to their profile, so give a better preview of their life, hobbies and perhaps personalities to other members.
You might be glad to know that the search function is rather advanced and allows users to search according to location and what health situation they’re dealing with, in addition to many other metrics. MPWH is also available on a desktop version, so you can take the experience on almost any platform that you have. It is good to note that the application is also available on Android, so the pool of people you could get to know is further increased.
The dating pool
There seems to be a good amount members on the MPWH site, which might roughly translate to the same for the application. It is unclear where the majority of the members reside, however, it’s possible to meet someone nearby through the location search function. As members are allowed to upload a number of pictures of themselves, you can get a better sense of another member and decide for yourself if it is worthwhile to send a message to him or her.
Payments to consider
The app is currently free to download, however payment is required to use the app. Price options include 1-month membership for US$29.95, 3-month membership for US$59.95 and 6-months membership for US$95.95. You can opt for a trial period of their Gold membership. Check their website for the finer terms and conditions.
Should you join?
If you are living with herpes only and would like to meet other people with a similar situation as yourself (i.e. does not have any other condition), then MPWH would be a good option to try. However, do test out the app to see if you like it before signing up for their gold membership!
