Unlike other available apps for people living with STD’s, MPWH (Meet People With Herpes) is exclusively designed as a dating app for those living with herpes. Other apps like Hope, Hift, and Positive Singles cater to individuals with a variety of STD’s which can be a little confusing at times.
This app keeps it simple by not trying to be all things to all people. MPWH is also completely free in its current form, although the developers do emphasize that this won’t last forever so you’ll want to take advantage of this offer while you can. This app is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
MPWH is a herpes dating site that avoids the bells and whistles and focuses on providing a simple, easy to use, extremely functional app for individuals living with herpes to enter the dating world. To get started you’ll have to complete a simple profile which will include an email for verification purposes – this is pretty standard fair for this type of app. It’s simple getting started, and you’ll find yourself scanning through potential matches in no time.
The MPWH user interface is nice and simple and proves that you can accomplish a lot without a lot of unnecessary distractions. The main interface is an activity section which is constantly updated with people matching your specified requirements as they add to their profile. You can simply scroll through the list until you find someone that catches your eye, tap on their profile, and then you can send them a wink or an email, or just save them as a favorite to check out later. If you want to narrow it down to the people closest to you can use the search section which lets you choose your desired radius.
Other Great Features
When you favorite a profile it’s saved in your lists section so you can go back to that profile at any time. Each members profile features as many pictures as they like – it’s not unusual for a member to include a whole album of pictures to give a sense of who they really are. You also have an inbox where you’ll find any winks or emails that have been sent your way. All of the major features can be easily accessed from the menu at the bottom of the app.
