1. Zoosk Review: Summary
To love someone and to be loved is the greatest desire of a human being. Many Germans are therefore looking for a Partner. Almost normal the Dating over the Internet. Online Dating Services specialize in bringing together Singles. Zoosk discovered this challenging area just.
Still, Zoosk is not fully arrived in the area of matchmaking. The partner proposals (smart date) are good, but there's still something missing regularity. Nevertheless: Zoosk is revolutionize on a good (if not perhaps even the most promising) way with innovative approaches to the Dating service to. In any case, it has made Zoosk's already one of the best Dating agencies in Germany. Recommended!
A summary of the test results on Zoosk:
The practical test is run for Zoosk extremely successful. The success rate of Zoosk, situated in an exceptionally high range for Dating services. However, the result is devalued, as many of the contacts are not assigned to the field of matchmaking. Nevertheless, Zoosk has a very good practical test of the judgment. The success rate is a result of the contact-Tests and gives an indication of how well the contact with other members can be manufactured. This indicator is critical for the success of an Online Dating service. Good!
Zoosk combines the functional with playful elements. So Zoosk not only delivers good results, but also makes fun. Notable features in the area of matchmaking, the "smart date" (self-learning rich System with an intelligent Matching algorithm), and the "insights" (revealing information about your own flirting behavior). The functions for the matchmaking are very innovative, but there is a point deduction as the number of partners is quite low.
Who would have thought that Zoosk scores especially in the area of user-friendliness. Of course, manage good results in the Design, the handling, and the Mobile-fitness/ the Apps are to be expected. But that Zoosk in terms of customer service and Notice positive strikes was not to be expected. Exemplary!
No other major matchmaking is as low as Zoosk. Granted, the matchmaking has in Zoosk's so not the Central role. Nevertheless, the Price-To-Performance Ratio is very good. Since there is nothing to complain about!

2.3 conclusion practice test and experience Zoosk
3. Features and Profiles on Zoosk
The Zoosk features have been tested primarily on an iPhone and the Zoosk App. Secondary tested the functions on the desktop version for PCs.
3.1 function and mediation methodology on Zoosk
With this function, the user supplied matching Profile to the search criteria set (can be changed). The nice thing is that by wiping to the left or to the right (Desktop: click the forward or Back Buttons) quickly between the proposals and hergesprungen can be. As a result, no boredom . As in real life, the eye wanders first to the large displayed photo of the other profiles. The user is not curious, is quickly called to the next profile. With the function "online Now" is exactly the method so.
Image: A smudge-and she's gone. The Next is already waiting on the right edge of the image.
The carousel is a essential function of Zoosk in terms of matchmaking. Here are quickly and easily marked contacts, like one at first glance. This is based on the Profiles from the search result. In the carousel the user is under the question "Would you like to you/meet him?" a profile picture of another member shown. Now, the user taps on "no", "Yes and no" or "Yes". For each Yes and no and Yes and your account grows to a coin. Thus, coins can be earned. Why this can be useful, more on that later.
Image: "do you Want to meet"? Yes, Yes-No, No.
Zoosk remembers which member of for a Date is out of the question. One of the members vote in the carousel is so positive, it comes to a two-sided interest . Now and contact can be made. The function can be fun and easy to be on the side used (for example, in the supermarket queue). Of course, only the externals of the members are in the foreground and character traits are left out. Nothing makes the time we find. The matchmaking in the aspect of personality to another site instead (smart date).
Image: there is a mutual interest, the output of the previously earned coins directly to the contact unlock.
Function "Smart Date"
Smart date is the real heart of Zoosks . Only by this feature of Zoosk is to be classified at all in the area of Dating services. Smart date is a of Zoosk developed algorithm of self-learning . Similar to other Dating services on the interests and personality are compared to characteristics of the user, and the matching members introduced to each other. These people are supposed to fit according to Zoosk's be good to each other and be attracted to find.
This is unique.
In contrast to the conventional Online Dating services is not determined at Zoosk, the personality profile by means of a questionnaire. The SmartDate proposes to the user Profiles on the Basis of his previous Zoosk-use. This is unique. The information for this wins Zoosk from the profile information (updates), from the approvals or refusals of smart date-proposals, and from smart date surveys.
At irregular intervals the users will be proposed in the smart date is a suitable profile. If the user says, within 24 hours, "Yes" and decided against the page exactly as it comes to a Match. A profile meets with rejection of the response will remain anonymous.
Image: A Smart Date-Partner Proposal. If you has interest?
The matchmaking by means of a learning system is impressive, and can actually provide a great value. We were in our Zoosk Test with the matchmaking satisfied. The number of The proposed Profiles is lower than for conventional Online Dating services, however, the accuracy seems to be at a high level. Over time, we have also noticed a significant improvement in the proposals.
The interests, Facebook, and the Matching
Zoosk omitted, contrary to the conventional Online Dating services on personality questionnaires-determination. To Zoosk from the competition lifts and new trails. We find it first. Innovations are valuable and important.
Decisive for the partner's proposals for the smart date seem to be to a relevant extent, the self-determined interests of the profiles. Of course, the interests will allow to draw conclusions on the personality, and can be a determining factor in whether two people have the same values, and may also like and appealing find. In the Zoosk Test, the manual has Selection of interests proved, however, unfortunately, as a small obstacle . Many of the searched-for interests (see image) could not be found. For example. could not be found in less popular works or Hobbies. The interests of Import from Facebook is available and can be far more practical variant (so it is thought, too, actually).
Image: The selection of interests is somewhat limited. Who uses Facebook is at an advantage.
This seems to be due to the fact that Zoosk Like his interests-classification on-me lists of Facebook is based. It is this interest in General, as an Element on Facebook, it is also on Zoosk to. This has clouded our Zoosk experience something, because for the personality determination of a user at Zoosk (and thus for the results of partner proposals) these interests are relevant. A limited selection of interests reduced the diversity of the profiles and homogenized this. Smart dates can not therefore take into account all aspects of the problem. Our expectations of the partner's proposals was therefore not too large. To our Surprise the partner's proposals in the smart date, however, suitable.
Image: The interests can also be simply taken over by Facebook. Practical.
For communication with other members of the are generally
- Standard greeting in the Form of a "Zuzwinkerns",
- to Send a message (a premium feature), and
- the chat conversation (i.e., a premium feature) available.
These functions are usually the consequence of one of the above-mentioned functions, and is used when an interesting profile is found.
Image: for premium members: read and send.
The Function Of "Gifts"
Interest in a member, is that digital gifts can be made. In this way, the member can be shown the interest. Finally, it is not given to just any something – the gifts have your Price .
Image: there Must be something from the kitsch shelf? Gifts could Express interest.
Anyone who wants to can his earned coins to take advantage of its To increase profile visibility . For this purpose, the user can purchase "Extras". In consequence, their profile will be shown more often to other members and prominently placed. More contacts result. According to Zoosk, so 3 can be used to generate times more profile views. In our Test, it has been confirmed in Parts.
Image: our test profile is not so popular. The tools could help.
Function "Mega Flirt"
This feature is free of charge and the number of Contacts in the height almost. The user selects a pre-defined message and Zoosk sends a Chat request to the members in the area and the age range of the user. This function can be used free of charge. And in fact, the Zoosk Test, we were able to make some new contacts.
The own flirting behaviors.
This Zoosk function is unique in the industry and provides interesting insights into their own flirting behavior . The can help themselves, but also to understand the potential flirt partner better. In consequence of the Flirt optimized behavior be. If the user learns, for example, that he prefers a certain flirt types of as a Partner, he can narrow down his search accordingly. Or he can talk to his contacts to targeted. The user thus learns, which is the Flirttyp has interest in him. In the ideal case, this Flirttyp would, of course, with the first cover. It is but to be expected for the first time. So the user can work out, for example, that he is perceived differently. With a permanent control of success in "insights". The function is a little Gimmick. But you can imagine what Benefit you can, sooner or later, pins actually.
Image: Zoosk a get-to-know. So the private Flirt can be improved.
3.2 quality of profiles on Zoosk
In fact, there are on Zoosk some a few Fake Profiles . It is somewhat noticeable that the profile review will not get as much attention as in the case of the conventional Online Dating services. Our Zoosk experience, but it is good to see possible Fakes and just left. Who wants to be on the safe side, should only profiles Verification Faith in it. The number of Fakes and Scammers in our Test overall, but very much in the frame.
For security and protection against Fake Profiles on Zoosk's the same to verify four ways to be profiles . It is a photo confirmation via Video, a confirmation number and a confirmation via Facebook or Twitter are available.
The Photo confirmation via Video is remarkable For this variant, however, requires the Zoosk App. A Video is recorded of you. Moderator of Zoosk compare the video recording with the profile images. Match the people and the pictures show the users, how it actually looks, is the exam successfully. This type of profile verification is not very common for sure, but still. For this purpose, there is a Plus point for Zoosk .
Image: it's Very simple: The photo-Video-profiles-verification
The profile pictures for Zoosk, not hide. This would therefore make little sense, since a significant part of the mediation methodology is based to the fact that the images of the other users to be assessed. Who wants to carry out her / his life partner like that, anonymous, is not for Zoosk right. We find the open approach, however, is legitimate and values him not a negative.
- You make so a lot of pictures as possible in your profile. The more pictures you have, the more interesting and credible you appear.
- Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to To verify the profiles . Many Zoosk users have profiles, fear of Fake. You directly show that you are genuine and really look to see how the pictures photo-Video verification)is (
3.3 summary of Zoosk's features and Profiles
Worthy of note is the functional area "insights", which reveals an interesting insight about his or her Dating behavior is so. Zoosk makes generally fun, since the functions are easy to use and a lively exchange of ideas with other members. The quality of the functions and partner proposals is good, however, the number of proposals should be a bit higher. This will certainly happen if Zoosk in Germany is even more popular. And it will be, in our view.
4. User-friendliness: Zoosk
Zoosk offers in contrast to the large, conventional Online Dating services no Advisor-the area of around the topic of Dating, love and Sex. The it does not need according to our experiences, even . In the guide you can find these issues. A sleek product, focused on the Essentials, we find appealing.
4.1 customer service and contact Zoosk
Zoosk offers extensive FAQs the most problems and answer questions. To heard yet: our Zoosk Test it, we test the customer service and contact options. Already the contact options provide information about the quality of customer service.
The answer was a recall on the same day.
Zoosk gets for the Commission of a telephone customer service a plus point . This is exemplary in the industry and, unfortunately, no Comparisons. But wait – In our test call, we discovered that on the connection, only messages on a tape left can be. We described our (constructed) Problem. The answer was a recall on the same day. Plus point!
Of course, we have also used the contact form. To our question, we got prompt, very friendly and helpful reply. We also got some coins as a gift, just like that. Wow!
Image: Exemplary! In addition to a contact form, there is also a phone number. The recall came on the same day.
First, behind so Zoosk is a slightly bitter aftertaste, since the premium memberships extend for a certain number of methods automatically. This is quite common in the industry. We do not find it is still good. However, Zoosk offers a simple way to cancel the subscription.
Model: So easy can otherwise be nowhere to be terminated.
Here Zoosk is now actually exemplary. While it is a the other Online Dating services with the termination of the premium membership is often difficult to make, shows Zoosk here, full transparency and user-friendliness. You look in the help section after the heading "notice of cancellation" will bring you to a detailed article can be describes as terminated. Big plus point is that The termination can (whether before, on iTunes, Amazon, or the Zoosk website what is purchased) directly to the Computer to be carried out. Very practical and user-friendly.

Zoosk is operated either in the mobile version (Apps and mobile website) as well as in the Desktop version easy to use and leaves no questions unanswered. The Design is modern and appealing. The use of power, therefore, fun.
4.4 Mobile Zoosks / The Zoosk App

So, the mobile Version of the website for mobile devices works excellent. The life partner from the Smartphone, mobile phone or Tablet for the fun of it. If you have a Smartphone, we recommend the use of the Zoosk App. Apart from the profile information, the App is absolutely suitable for everyday use and practical.
4.5 conclusion to Zooks user-friendliness
5.1 Zoosk prices and Zoosk cost
To Zoosk really successful make use of a premium membership is essential. As a free member, it is not possible to read messages, let alone write it. Chat only of course as a premium member. Because without communication, but so not a Flirt comes into existence, these functions are elementary – a premium membership is quasi-compulsory.
Of course, Zoosk does not offer its services free of charge. The free membership is that prospective buyers can make an impression of the Dating App. We also recommend to all readers.
- Unlimited messages to read and write (absolutely necessary, includes chat)
- See who has visited your profile (useful)
- Smart date (necessary for serious Dating)
It makes a difference whether you decide on a PC or via the App for a premium membership. Both the prices as well as the maturities offered will differ. Ultimately, however, it has no effect on the functionality or the usability of Zoosk.
A premium membership on Zoosk App
- For 6 Months Duration is Zoosk price € 15.00 per month (50% cheaper per month than 1-month duration)
- For 3 Months is Zoosk price € 20.00 per month

- For 6 Months Duration is Zoosk price 20,90 € per month

Image: Zoosk prices for a premium membership.
We recommend the 6-month period. Why?
In this variant, 50% of the Zoosk cost savings . According to our experience, is required for the life partner in Dating services about a year and a half. This is usually faster than in the Offline world. Who decides for the 6 months, you can save considerably. He who hesitates, can of course start with the 3-month period. Less experience is not worth it according to. Who would like to try Zoosk only time should use only the free membership.
The Zoosk prices are relatively cheap compared to those in other Dating services. It should be noted, however, that the Zoosk cost, if necessary, by additional coin purchases increase.
On Zoosk, there are so-called In-App purchases. It coins can be purchased that are required for certain functions.
