Once Review – Read This Before You Download

Are you ready for a brand new dating app?

We have the right one for you. One is a brand new dating app that many people have not yet discovered, but it could be the best.

Dating apps can become overcrowded with users. You may get so caught up in the action swiping you don’t even consider the person.

However, Once is trying to change the status quo by using a new matching algorithm.

You want to learn more? Great!

This is everything you need to know to evaluate Once and decide if it’s worth downloading.

First Impression

You can search for “Once” in the App Store or Google Play, just as you would with any other app.

Once you have found the app, wait for it to download.

You can also access Once from your browser.

It’s easy to sign up and get started with the app.

For a quicker sign-up, you have the option of using your Facebook or your phone number.

This is a requirement of most dating apps. It allows them to verify your identity and ensure that you are real.

After that, you will need to fill in the basic information about yourself, such as your name and gender.

The next step is to choose a profile photo. However, it must clearly show your face. Otherwise your photo may be rejected.

One is different than other dating apps because they only show one match per day.

Every time you open the app, you will find a new match. You’ll need to wait while your Once matchmaker scans the userbase and matches you with someone.

You have the option to fill out your profile again during this period. This is highly recommended as you will need to provide as much information as you can about yourself to find a good match.

This algorithm is different from Tinder’s because you get “personalized matchmaking”, which means you get more quality than quantity.

If you are selected to be a match for another person, and they match you with them, you will get their full attention for 24hrs. You can reach them by sending a message and, if they respond, you can talk to them as long as you like.

This app is perfect for serious dating. This app is primarily for serious relationships. If you are just looking to hookup, then consider another app.


There are very few other activities on this app than Hily’s one-match-a day feature.

Once is a simple app. They only offer a messaging feature that allows you to get to know your match.

However, they do provide real-life matchmakers to help you find the perfect person.

There are no search filters as they match you up with the right person every day. However, you can get match preferences, which allows you to answer questions that will help matchmakers match you up with someone.

However, it is a paid feature.

If you’re a fan of a particular person, you can also pick your match for the next day.

Once’s best feature is its clean layout. It is a beautiful app with a simple interface that is easy to use for new users.


A free membership is limited to a very small number of activities. You will need to subscribe to one of their services or buy Crowns to be able access paid features.

The difference is that Crowns are only available for a single time, while memberships can be used for as long as you have the membership.

Crowns starting at $8.99 for 5 credits (Crowns), $17.99 for 15 credits, $26.99 30 credits and $74.98 100 credits.

Credits are expensive for a one-time use and each cashing in of them is a costly decision. If you intend to take full advantage of the features, it is in your best interests to get a membership at Once.

Memberships start at $19.99 per Month, $45.00 for 3-month periods, and $60.00 to 6 months.


The dating app isn’t as time-consuming or overwhelming as other apps. You can only match with one person per day so you have the opportunity to truly evaluate your matches, rather than just swiping through superficial choices.

There will never be any scammers, fakes or inactive users. You will always have real conversations with people. Matches are personal, so make sure you complete all details of your profile. You’ll be matched with great potential partners.


However, it can be frustrating to have to rely on a matchmaker for your matches.

You can also chat with limited features if you have a free account, but cannot do much without a paid membership other than wait for new matches.

Conclusions and Rating

Once is a great app to receive personalized matches if you are willing to wait or be patient. You won’t be distracted by endless swiping and accidentally pass on someone you really like.

Each match will have 24 hours to you, so start a conversation with them and see what happens. You’ll find a new match the next day you open the app! Once is the only dating app that gives you your match’s complete attention for an entire day.
