General description

Fruzo dating app is a combination of social network and cam-to-cam private chats. It is launched in 2013 by Bridgestone International Group Inc. It is suggested as an alternative to Instagram. Both chats with matches and random chats are available.

Pros:

  • Very easy to use
  • About 70% of reviews are positive
  • Synching to Facebook account as a preventive measure against the fraud
  • Adding users to the friend-list works as an ice-breaker

Cons:

  • Very basic and trivial features
  • Profiles are often banned without a reason and users are forced to pay for removing the ban
  • Male profiles strongly prevail and there’s no gender selection

Pricing:

Free 1-month trial

1-week subscription – $11.99

1-month subscription – $29.99

3-months subscription – $49.99

Removing the ban – $10.99

Users’ opinions:

“Fruzo can be annoying because they block you all the time but if you argue or pay back you can keep on using it. I made great friends there and met some in reality, I found my recent boyfriend there too. So it works, although it isn’t perfect. It’s just great when you are bored or lonely and want nothing vulgar, just a normal communication with new people. I’d rather recommend it.” (Kelly, 25, New York City)

“There are lots of much better apps, I don’t know why I stopped over. But I liked the absence of fakes, which is so rare, and a big number of nice folks to talk with. It’s a video chat option so you know for sure you aren’t talking with just robots. No one tried to sell themselves or get naked, it was just ok like if I talked to my old buddies. I enjoyed the atmosphere. Thanks dudes.” (Michael, 34, Kansas city)

Expert’s conclusion:

Fruzo dating app is a platform that won’t surprise you with anything new but at least it’s legit. Not many dating apps nowadays are, so we rate it as “pretty well”.

It tried to be original from the beginning when it suggested to unite people just like the social network does, and to initiate the chats between non-matches easily/randomly. At the same time, classically-minded users could still use the advanced, many-levelled search.

In reality, many modern apps suggest much more interesting and innovative features along with trendy design and fun extras. You won’t find all that on Fruzo.

Again, coming back to reality, the competition in the dating market appeared too high and much better applications had the same price as very plain Fruzo with its chats. The developers had to survive somehow so they allowed some commercial tricks. First of all, it’s constant banning of users without a real reason. To become active again, they should pay a fee $10.99 each. Not bad. The administrators are definitely motivated to ban as many folks as possible, and as often as possible!

Accordingly to that, customer support should be slow, almost mute, otherwise they would have to re-activate many accounts for free, by fair requests.

For these reasons, we cannot rate Fruzo high enough, but we should take into account that majority of users are satisfied with the service. People indeed make friends easily with the help of this app, and manage to find a mate. Therefore, Fruzo can be called a good and successful dating app, even if boring for some people.

Although it has certain customer support issues, it can be considered safe. It requests not only Facebook signing-in but even FB synchronisation for safety reasons. Probably, that’s why on some sources Fruzo is positioned as a 12+ app. Of course, it’s a mistake, but it’s pretty safe for sure.

As a summary, we would recommend it to 18 – 50 y.o. folks as an additional social network that helps to find new friends and often partners. This app demands an average income and provides easy and fast results, on a condition of patience and previously gained habit to go through certain virtual “obstacles”.
