F3 for iOS

Rate this post

F3 is a social discovery app designed for people to make new friends, communicate with the existing ones, and simply have fun while socializing. The app has several unique features, including the ability to send and receive anonymous messages, photos, and videos. You can also customize your photos and videos with emojis, stickers, and drawing tools to express your feelings in a better way. If you are super bored, have no-one to talk to, or just feel adventurous, you can play the BFF Game to meet people nearby or from all over the world. So far, the app has attracted over 20 million users worldwide, and it is not surprising as the app is localized for an array of languages – from Arabic, Spanish, and Chinese to Dutch, Croatian, and Ukrainian. It can be used by the users who are seventeen and older, and it has both a free and premium version.

As a software testing agency, we keep an eye on the newly released mobile apps to see what great features are included and how well they are implemented. F3 is a relatively new player on the market, so we got our hands on it and scanned it for malfunctions. We must admit, we didn’t find too many F3 bugs, yet we would like to draw the attention of the app creators to some aspects affecting the overall user experience.

I believe F3 has a competitive edge over similar apps because there is a novelty vibe to it. Even though its core functionality is similar to most dating and social media apps, some of its features are implemented in a different way. F3 has a friendly and intuitive UI, and overall, I couldn’t find many bugs. However, to level up the user experience, I would make the error messages meaningful and clear to the user, and fix the account sorting issue.
