Zoosk is a large site with a lot of options and features. It’s easy to jump right in and browse, and you can sit down and fill out all of your profile fields in little time. The menus are user-friendly, and the app provides step-by-step assistance to help you get started. Since its original inception as a Facebook app, Zoosk has grown to over 35 million users.
On Zoosk, there is something for everyone. Whether you’re a younger dater looking for a meaningful relationship or fun fling, or you’re an experienced professional looking for someone who matches your lifestyle, Zoosk has something for you.
Includes an easy search feature that immediately looks for people in your area.
A “carousel” choice displays over 100 users for a quick “yes/no” to learn your preferences.
Trademarked Smartpick feature helps narrow your search by having you complete surveys and questions.
Immediately after you join, you’re introduced to a series of simple, user-friendly menu options that enable you to upload photos and start searching. It takes only seconds to go live with your profile, and you can begin browsing your matches almost immediately. For your photos, you can upload from your Facebook account, choose from your phone’s library, or take new ones on the spot.
There is a simple verification process that allows you to verify your photo, phone number, or social media profile, and this allows you to receive more messages. This process enables you to have greater assurance in the profiles that you view, and others in turn are more confident about your own profile.
Additionally, the search feature is easy to use and includes an age/distance auto search as well as a more advanced filter with 10 options for more specific searches.
Zoosk App Menu Options
The Carousel option allows you to quickly view over 100 photos of users so that Zoosk can better determine what you like and recommend matches based on your preferences.
Zoosk coins are available as in-app purchases that allow you to take advantage of additional features. For example, you can buy virtual gifts for matches or verify that they read your message.
Other than age and location, Zoosk provides eight basic profile statistics: sign, height, ethnicity, body type, children, education, religion and smoking.
Four additional fields allow you to go deeper into who you are and what you’re looking for: Story, Perfect Match, Ideal Date and Interests.
A “Promote Yourself” feature provides you with additional ways to increase your chances for success, including a “Megaflirt” option that sends out multiple messages at once and a “Boost” option that uses coins to push you to the front of the searches.

As far as usability goes, Zoosk is a winning application thanks to its concise menus and options. The app works well for the casual user as well as the more serious dater. However, if you are more serious, there is really no getting around the monthly subscription fees.
Zoosk began in 2007 as a Facebook application and has since evolved into a leading online dating platform. There are currently more than 35 million members in over 80 countries speaking 25 languages.
