Our Review

Clover is a mobile dating app that "has the simplicity of Tinder with the science of Match.com", according to their press deck. It was launched in 2014 by CEO and founder Isaac Raichyk.

It offers different functions and highlights the special feature which lets users arrange dates in as quick as two clicks. Users can exclude others from contacting them not just through blocking, but through criteria like their age, gender, or location.

It currently has 3 million total users in countries worldwide. Whether you are looking for a short-term or a long-term relationship, check out our review below to see if it is the app for you.

Reviews say that Clover has better feature than some of the most popular dating apps today. Having over 10 million members can quite vouch to that. 

The users of this site have different interests and intentions when they signed up for membership. Some are looking for their partner-in-life, while some are just taking it casually and are in to have some fun and no-commitment dates and hook-ups.

Based on available data, the members are active in using the app, so expect to interact with them once you sign up.

The age bracket of members which has the highest number of members is 25-34 years olds, followed by the 35-44 years olds.

Clover is available in more than 90 countries, but most members are from the United States.

Signing Up at Clover

Clover Login
  • Create an account in less than 2 minutes
  • Register using your email address or Facebook
  • You have to state your intention
  • Only one photo needed - can be taken on the spot, uploaded from your phone, through Facebook, or through Instagram
  • Signing up is free

Your intention can be "looking for people to chat with", "looking for new friends", "looking for dating", or "looking for long-term". If you sign in through your email, you have to provide your basic information before you can proceed in using the site. If you chose the Facebook option, we imagine that your basic details would just be automatically imported into your account. Usernames can be up to 50 characters but that's not advisable because it could be annoying for other users.

Overall, you have to provide your name, age, gender, orientation, intention, height, ethnicity, occupation, and school. You have the option to disclose your location too.

But none of these is mandatory. Clover only states that providing more information improves the quality of your matches.

Making Contact on Clover

Clover Chat
  • Free messaging only for users who like each other
  • All other methods of messaging require a premium membership
  • You'll see the thumbnails of users who "boosted" their profiles on top of your chat screen
  • Set your parameters for better search results

To see the suggested matches in your area, you have to validate/verify your account. You can validate your account through an SMS code or through your app store account. Though tedious for some, this is actually a good call because it reduces spam and fake profiles.

The only type of free messaging you can use is when you and another user like each other, similar to Tinder. But if you pay for a premium subscription, you can message anyone regardless of like status.

There are still other ways of communicating with another user: adding them as a favorite (they'll be notified), playing 20 questions with them, or straight up requesting for a date. You can also adjust the settings when you search for other members on the site.

Clover Profile Quality

Clover Profile
  • Multiple photos can be viewed for free
  • Unlike most dating apps, profiles are not swiped on
  • You can "Play 20 Questions", "Request a Date", or "Recommend to a Friend"
  • See the Chatrooms (called Mixers) someone has joined
  • There are some fake profiles

    True to their "we are not like other dating apps" theme, Clover profiles are not swiped left or right, but clicked on.

    On profiles, you'll see a user's location, gender, intention, height, ethnicity, occupation, and more. There are three options below that: the first one being that you can play 20 questions with the user, which means you can compare each other's answers. If they haven't played it yet, you can "ask" them to with one click of a button.

    You can request a date just by suggesting a time and place and get notified if the other person confirms. As simple as that.

    Lastly, you can recommend a profile to a friend and it will send as a text message.

    Clover Real Life Review

    I've been a fan of Tinder and when I heard about this app, I got curious. At first I thought it just copied how Tinder does it, but there are still differences. I's just a little pricey, but I guess that's okay. I matched with tons of other members, met a few of them, and all of them are real. Well, maybe I'm just lucky, but still,  I had a good experience. - Tim, 26

    My boyfriend and I met through Clover. It is indeed a happy ending, but it took me a few months of membership before finally meeting a nice guy. All the other guys are either fake, or they stood me up. But still thankful for this! -Maine, 23

    Design and Usability

    The design of Clover is nice and classy. The white theme with different colors of accents is nice to the eyes. The photos can be seen clearly since they can be viewed on a full screen.

    Although some of its features are similar to other dating sites, it stands out because it gives its personal touch, to make those features better and more user-friendly.

    The app is not available for computer use, although you can download the APK version if you have an emulator.

    Is Clover expensive or cheap?

    In comparison to other providers Clover is in the upper midfield.

    Payment Options
    • Via Mobile Phone

    Users also have to pay 0.99 USD if they want to change their names. The prices for the premium subscriptions are remarkably high, even against dating apps in the same field. The additional features you get are run-of-the-mill premium features that are commonly offered by other, cheaper apps. The boosting of profiles isn't even included in the package.

    If you pay through your app store account, Clover uses a protocol called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL/TLS) for your privacy to make sure that any personal information is scrambled when it's sent from the app to the company.

    Special Features

    On Demand Dating

    This feature is the one that sets Clover apart from other dating apps. For the more popular apps, the most common complaint are people who seem to be there just to browse profiles without any intention of meeting up, and people who "ghost" on others mid-conversation. Clover aims to end these problems, and for the most part, they've succeeded. With this feature, you can browse through the profiles of people who have turned on this option and just choose between "I'm interested" or "No thanks". If you're interested, you can either suggest a time or place, or let the other user do it. That's it. You just need a confirmation, and you've got a date. No more beating around the bush, no more awkward segues. 

    Mixers

    Mixers are basically chat rooms or events that have a common theme. Some of the existing ones are "Serious Relationships Only", "Healthy Lifestyle", "90s babies", "Fitness Singles", and more. All the existing mixers are available on a separate tab and you can join any of them for free. Once you're in a Mixer, you can invite other users in. Since most of the popular mixers have upwards of 50,000 members, they will not be good ways of discovering other users. An alternative would be to find mixers with a smaller number of members, or create your own and invite others. There are no limits to topics, so you can be as specific or creative as you want. You can use a Mixer to plan an event with other members or to just chat with a large group of people.

    20 Questions

    The common flirting game has been brought to life in the digital realm by Clover. To start with, you are presented with two cards labeled with contrasting personality traits (e.g predictable vs spontaneous, intelligence vs. good looks, book smart vs. street mart, etc.) and you just have to select which one applies to you. Your 20 answers can be seen by others and you can see everyone else's as well. Playing this is optional, but it is a fun way to show your personality to the public and to get a glimpse of other people's personalities even without talking to them. 20 questions isn't a one-time game. You can keep replaying and get a different set of questions each time.

    Editors Conclusion

    DatingScout.com Author Chris Pleines
    As a dating app, Clover is as good as people are making it out to be. It's rising above the rest with its unique features while still maintaining the ease-of-use. The app will get you a date, 100%. If anything doesn't go according to plan, it's just because of human factors at this point. The app looks clean, modern, and pleasing to the eyes. The functions are easy to navigate through, and most of the features are intuitive. The only issue (and unfortunately it's a big issue) is that the premium prices are really high, even compared to the prices of its # 1 rival, Tinder Gold. This would be understandable if the premium features were groundbreaking, but they're just similar to the add-ons provided by cheaper apps. Its most distinguishing feature, On Demand Dating, is available for free, so it makes us wonder what the point of the sky-high prices are. If you're not willing to spend your money, check our Dating Apps category for more affordable or even completely free apps.
