The members of TheCatch are looking for long-term relationships. Getting a match requires joining a game that may entice the fans of the reality show "The Bachelorette."

Based on available data, there are more male members than females who are from different countries but most are from the United States.

Although many reviews say that it is a female-friendly app, there are more male members than females. But there is a fair chance for everyone to sign-up for free.

The game can only be hosted by female members, but on the other hand, only male (or LGBT) members can only be participants.

    TheCatch Real Life Review

    "Playing TheCatch is being like in the TV Show- The Bachelorrette! Whoever created this app is brilliant! Well, the app design can be improved, but nonetheless, it's great!" -Kara, 27

    "I'm just new in using dating apps. I have a little hard time understanding how it works. Maybe I would just try the more convential dating apps available. This one is not really for me. -Caiden, 34

    Design and Usability

    The design of the app is minimalist and good to the eyes. The color combination is good as well which doesn't make it overwhelming. It doesn't have a website version yet where you can use the same features. An iOS version is not available too.

    Newbies can easily learn how to use the app, but the interface can be improved to make it fun like the game that it offers.
