Our Review

Ship makes finding a date more fun and inclusive by bringing your friends into the dating app experience.

The app will allow you to find matches for your friends and vice versa, aside from the functionality to find one for yourself.

Even your friends in relationships can help set you up, so you can all share in the crushes, the ghostings, and the situationships together. Finding the one used to take a village, now it takes a group chat.

We took a closer look at Ship for you! Is it worth the hype? Learn more about how it works here.

How to Sign Up for Ship App

ship app signup
  • You can join as a single or a 'not single' member
  • Members who are in a relationship can just find a match for their friends
  • Creating an account is free
  • You need a working phone number to verify your account
  • Registration process is fast and easy

Creating an account is fast and easy. All you have to do is to download the app on your phone and start the registration process.

The signup process starts by declaring whether you are a single or 'not single' person. If you are single, the app will allow you to find matches for yourself and your friends. On the other hand, if you declare that you are already taken, you can only find matches for your friends.

You will need a working phone number and a profile photo to finish creating an account. There are also questions about your career, education, physical appearance, and preferences, but they are mostly skippable.

Making Contact on Ship App

ship app contact
  • A "match" is made when you both liked each other's profiles
  • You can only chat with your matches
  • There is a group chat feature you can create with your friends
  • Your "friends" list will be taken from your phone's contacts list
  • There is a video group chat feature available

Before you can chat with other people, you must become matches first. To become a match, a person whose profile you liked, should like your profile back. All the communication features are free, but you will only get a limited number of swipes per day.

Your friends can recommend people to you and vice versa. They can play matchmakers to you, and you a matchmaker for them. You can have a chat about people using their video and group chat features for free.

However, you can only have a friend on the site if one of your phone contacts have joined Ship. The app encourages people to get more of their friends to join through a referral link that you can send to them through the app.

Ship App Profile Quality

ship app profile
  • Profiles are detailed
  • Viewing profiles are free
  • Browsing photos are free
  • You can edit your profile after signing up
  • There are no fake profiles on the app

    The app has a pretty good pool of singles as there are no fake profiles detected during the test. You are sure that you will be talking to real people, but making a match is a bit hard and could take a longer time.

    Since making a match is hard, the days would also drag before you can chat with another member. Nevertheless, the profiles are great and allow enough space for you to express yourself in your own words aside from the predefined sections that tell more about your personal information.

    Special Features

    Ship has the following special features for free so you can have a more meaningful stay on the site:

    Video Chat

    Create in groups or talk to your match in private through the video chat feature. You can also use this feature with your friends.

    Group Chat

    Talk to your friends about your matches and app crushes through this free feature. You can only add someone as friend if they are on your phone contact list.

    Top Shows

    This is the newest feature of Ship. It lets members add some more information about their friends who they are shipping to find a match. If two people like the same genre of TV shows, it's most likely that they have the same taste about other things too. At least they already have an ice breaker in case they decide to have their first date.

    This feature was initially available to iOS users only, but starting August 2020, it's already available for Android users too.

    The Ship App is one of those unique dating platforms in terms of how it works, but it currently does not have enough people to actually utilise this special feature to it. Unless it can gather more people together who knows each other, it would only just be another dating app that you can use to swipe left or right. You can try this out for free if you want, but for more options, you can check our Matchmaker category.
