As we’ve learned so far, Pure is one of the simplest hookup apps around. And this aesthetic is further reflected in its design.
Do you know those apps that are cluttered with lots of buttons, menus, and sometimes even ads? Yeah, they can be really getiton jak dziala annoying when all you want is to have sex tonight.
They are all looking for discreet hookups, they all are nearby users, and whilst there’s no search filter, you can just scroll down until you find someone who catches your eye
One of the problems I have with some sites like Adult Friend Finder is that their design can be so basic and dated that it’s off-putting. This isn’t the case with Pure.
As you can see from the image below, there’s absolutely nothing fussy about it, there are zero distractions, and yet it still looks cool:
Essentially, everything you need is plastered on your homepage. Here, you’ll be greeted by profiles in your area that meet your criteria.
The only time you’ll leave this homepage is whenever you click the ‘message’ icon, or whenever you want to amend your ad (the ad icon is located to the top right of your screen).
Once you’ve created your ad, you can then message whoever you like. You can also send them gifts by clicking the corresponding icon.
On Pure, you have only 24 hours to arrange a meeting. If you want to chat longer, turn off the chat timer. Otherwise, your chat history from chat screen will be erased too.
Unlike most other dating apps, Pure doesn’t actually have many special features to write about. It’s just a straight-up, no-frills hookup site that lets you create a profile and send messages to other PURE users. However, there are one or two features worth highlighting:
- Instant Chat
Pure has introduced a new feature called Instant Chat. It allows you to send to message to anyone that you like without getting matched first. However, it’s a stand alone feature which costs $3.49 per usage. Once you use it, it’s gone. In my opinion, it’s very expensive. However, the feature itself is good.
As well as sending messages, you can also send “gifts” to other PURE users. This is a paid feature that is usually used by people to grab someone’s attention. Pure themselves claim a “gesture like this will give you a better chance of success.”
- Self-Destructing Profiles
The most unique feature on Pure is what makes the app stand out from all the others. When you hand over your payment details and create a paid account, you only have one hour before the profile self destructs so that active users don’t get bogged down by small talk, the self-destructing profile was created. If you want sex tonight, this is clearly the place to get it.
Is Pure Free?
Pure is free for women, but men must pay a fee. However, they get access to a 3-day free trial period.
Pure has an unusual payment model in that women get access to all of its features for free, whilst men have to pay.
However, I can only assume that such a payment model was devised to either a) attract more women to sign up or b) make a woman’s life easier on a hookup app where they would otherwise be FLOODED with messages from guys if guys were allowed to use it for free.
When guys sign up to the site, they’re given a few pointers, such as ‘respect the women on the site’ and they also remind you that they don’t ‘serve girls on demand for you.’ This leads me to assume that the app is designed to protect women.
