How to Sign Up for Hud App

HudApp SignUp
  • Registration is free
  • Sign-up in three ways
  • Provide basic information to become a member
  • Finish signing up in five minutes
  • No email verification needed
  • Signing up with your phone number can be a little difficult

For iOS users, there are three ways to sign up to HudApp. First is with your Apple ID. Second is with your mobile number. Lastly, it's with your Facebook account. If you are using android, you may use the last two options.

However, during the time of testing, signing up using the phone number is having some error even if it was tried using different devices and numbers.

Once you've chosen from the sign-up options, you will be asked to enter your location, identify your gender, chooses whether you are signing up as an individual or as a couple, choose whether you are interested in women, men, everyone, or couples, and the last question is about your birthday.

Upon finishing that part, the screen will show you the page about notification settings. You may choose "Notify Me," or "Not now" based on your preference.

It seems that that's the end of it, however, the registration process will not be successful unless you agree to start the 7-days free trial.

If you are using your Apple ID, you need to link it and the subscription payment will be charged to your account after the trial period. If you are using your mobile number and Facebook account, you need to link your credit card so you can proceed and check your profile.

Video Calling is free and it has a special feature of blurred call if the members are not comfortable to see each others' faces yet. You can also send and receive photo messages. It gives the app an extra thumbs up since meeting people is the main purpose of any dating app.

Even if manual searching is not a feature of the app, you have the option to scroll and browse among the members and react to their profiles by clicking like or dislike.

    HudApp is a relatively new app. Since new is always better, as they say, there's a lot of expectations about it.Signing up is not easy. It differs based on the kind of device that you are using. Also, during the time of testing, using the mobile login method has been resulting in errors. Linking it to your Facebook account is the easiest way to enter the app.Reviews from other websites and some users state that the app is not very good, and not so easy-to-use. Despite the bad reviews, it's a good point that the app offers a 7-day free premium trial. Not all websites can offer such. But if you are forgetful, there's a big chance that you might get charged for the subscription fee. The mechanics of the app is more for finding fun and just all games. So if you're not really looking for something serious, you might still want to find it fun.
