Ridiculous System  Ilcalvez  1 star

A team of good-for-nothing failing in creating a solid platform. nothing to add.

I was put on the waiting list so if you are on Raya, contact me please insta: @JvdaMusic I need referrals. :)


Raya get it together  McG213  1 star

For those of us who applied when you first launched and who weren’t aware we needed to use a referral code from other prominent friends in the industry in order to be taken seriously, you guys need to do better. We should be able to reapply at least after a year. As someone in the very industry you claim to tout for 15+ years, it shouldn’t be this difficult.


Awesome!  UniconBuns  5 star

Great customer service.


Frustrating  Medic2641  1 star

Not sure what the algorithm is here- but apparently a well earning, size 2, marathon running female in medicine is not up to par. 😕


Can’t even get to begin application screen  buuuue  1 star

Every time I try to start the application, I login to Instagram, then it goes back to the home screen and freezes


Total waste  xoTIA  1 star

I have been put on the waitlist & have been on it for TWO years. I tried to sign up when this app was first released... its a huge disappointment. And a waste of time. Don’t!


App Crashes immediately  Bwin7  1 star

I’m sure the app would be cool if it worked. It crashes as soon as I try to login. I’ve tried deleting it and downloading again, same thing. For some reason there is no support or contact to let them know about the bug. I’m using an iPhone 7 so shouldn’t be an issue.


Crashes  Patrizia1441  1 star

I couldn’t even apply to be a member because the app keeps crashing. 👎🏽


Bad System  WAitlisted  1 star

The app did not state the importance of the referral element and I accidentally listed a friend whose application was pending rather than several people I later learned were on it. It's an app where you are accepted based on being in the creative and Ent community which I have been for nearly 20 years. It makes no sense that if they have your Instagram handle that they then wouldn't check your profile. If they checked mine it would be clear I am in the "community." And there is no mechanism to contact them or input new referral options. Pretty lame....

This app won't be around for long  The Original Snowy  1 star

If you can't join because you don't know anyone who's already on it, then this will fail.


Not worth the subscription  Asmnduf  2 star

This app is obnoxious. The girls they accept are 80% hot model types, and the men are mostly douchey hipster types, not nearly as attractive as the girls. Kind of makes it feel like an escort service. The slideshow format is cheesy, and most of the singles that pop up (most of the time there is no one to see) don't even live in the same city as me. Total bust.


Lame  SM102215  1 star

Waiting for critical mass in the guise of "reviewing applications."

Great app! User friendly. Have met more people w/ common interests on here compared to other dating apps I've used in the past. Signed up a month ago and I've already been on a couple fun dates. I like that they don't just let anybody on here. Thumbs up to the people at raya .


App is not smart enough to distinguish gay from straight  gayNOTstraight  1 star

I'm gay. The app is NOT smart enough to distinguish between showing me other potential gay matches and the rest of the straight male profiles. I've filtered through the same straight male profiles that my straight female friends have matched up with and have gone on dates with. Ironically, Raya sent out an alert acknowledging SCOTUS' marriage equality ruling (yay!), yet they can't figure out how to separate by orientation preference. Beyond this, the app looks great. I've stopped using until the programming is fixed.


stop hating this app is cool  oliverlaw  5 star

i have never used a dating app in my life because it’s just not for me, but i joined raya and it’s great. the things that freaked me out about dating apps is that they’re a bunch of strangers, and i was never comfortable doing that. on raya, you scroll down and see off the bat all the friends in common you have on instgram, and that is automatically an ice breaker. i’ve actually gone on some dates with people who i ended up having tons of mutual friends with, and they’ve been great. give this thing a try it’s pretty fantastic!


It's about time  Lala2916  5 star

Tinder has become the dating pool equivalent of riding the city bus. Finally someone out there is catering to like-minded people who share similar tastes and would likely be connected in the real world if they had only met. I don't mind paying $7.99/mo to know that the people I'm sifting through have been vetted out. I have a feeling the folks who are giving this a negative review were simply denied membership. And based on their complaints, they are proving that the system does indeed work.


Too Many Fish in the sea  Wagmeister  5 star

Never have I used a dating app that had so many beautiful, eligible, successful people to meet and hang out with. Everybody is cool, everybody is down to earth, everybody is hot. Plus it's a brilliant user experience.


Love Raya!  Jbprescott  5 star

They have done a really good job of vetting out a great group of people. I've actually made several friends on here because there's so many likeminded people in similar industries, and because of the referral process it's a lot of friends-of-friends. Best dating app by far!


Finally!  Xlea579  5 star

I've never done the dating app thing bc it just seems like a total time sink but this is so carefully curated! It almost feels like a close friend specifically picked the people for me. You go to certain bars depending on your personality type/vibe etc. right? This kind of like an online bar. Some people might not be into it, but for others, it's perfect - a way of "going out", of "putting yourself out there" while still getting to chill at home in pjs :) I think it's a great idea and executed really well.


Exactly what you're looking for...  Stewkle  5 star

This app is fantastic. The look and feel is flawless and it couldn't be more fun. You will love it!
