The new update has caused the app to stop working, meaning nothing will load, including my own profile and it says an error has occurred38 votes
Hi — can you please let us know if this is still happening? It may have been caused by a server issue that was already resolved. If not, let me know if deleting and re-downloading the app helps?
I've found it difficult to actually communicate with people on this app, so how about some sort of anonymous chat that pairs you up with someone based on your interests and sexual preferences etc. And you could have the option to reveal each other's identites if you both get along? I think it would be a fun and interesting way of meeting new people based on what you both have in common.
I also found that the interface is too dark and makes it hard to concentrate on the app.18 votes
Thanks for the feedback. Just so you know, we currently have a a more public way of chatting based on interest type. Simply go to Explore >> Interest Groups.
I also understand your need to want to chat with others more anonymously. I’ll be sure to take this to the team and see what kind of solution we might be able to find to suit this need.
For non-binary people, the only options seem to be bi/pansexual or asexual. However, while (in my experience) most non-binary people do identify as one of those, there are some (such as myself) who are attracted to a single (binary) gender. For instance, I identify as genderfluid and am attracted to men, and usually describe my sexual orientation as gay, but when I put "gay" or "straight" as my sexual orientation, the description of me says that I'm attracted to "neither" gender (which is still, I feel I should note, quite binarist language), and there seems to be no way to fix this; my options are either "men and women" or "neither".
Perhaps you could either return to the system of specifying whom you're attracted to, or (as others have suggested) allow people to fill fields in themselves (i.e. customisation).
It would also be nice to be able to specify romantic orientation as distinct from sexual orientation.

Great feedback, and something we’re actively considering. Thank you!
They should update the messaging3 votes
Sorry, what do you mean “they should update the messaging”?
For the people who are looking for a date they could have like a filter for like what people with the same interest, race, distance, and other factors, then there should be and optioning connect tab where it saids people who are wanting a date, just and idea here9 votes
Thanks for the recommendation and feedback!
Not sure if this has been mentioned but a place in our profile to link our bf/gf/etc... Would be nice. My partner is on here with me and we are looking for other couples to hang out with but there doesn't seem to be a way to see that quickly in a profile. Having the link also lets other people know you're with someone and who.39 votes
Neat idea! Thanks! :)
I think there are too many notifications, especially when you accept or decline a friend request. If I have just declined someone's request, I don't need a notification reminding me that I have just done it.10 votes
We’re tweaking the notifications system.
I'm in Dallas, TX. The first person listed in the recently active nearby section is from New York. What gives?6 votes
It would be cool if you could see when was the last time the person was on distinctt (For Example: 4 hours ago)75 votes
Thanks for the recommendation, I like it!
Some people want a lighter theme, I DO NOT! Please make options and don't change the app as a whole. I love it as it is. How about choosing the color for buttons, like aqua?50 votes
Thanks for your feedback! It’s good to know there are users that like the dark theme as well!
We’re considering your recommendation of themes.
This might help if the person is questioning but not sure yet5 votes
Thanks, great idea!
I want to be able to post things and not have to worry about the people 18 and under seeing it. Or non friends. I think it would be an amazing privacy update5 votes
Thanks for this idea! It’s really helpful to hear ideas from our users on ways to make the app better. We’ll definitely consider this as we focus on privacy and ways to help you find and contact other users.
Possibly think of moving the ad banners toward the top of the app (particularly in messages) to avoid accidental tapping. V. 3.0.2.02 votes
I think there should be an online/offline system where we can see when they we're last online and how long ago this was, also show when there online more clearly, maybe on there actual profile5 votes
We are considering how to implement this type of functionality, and where it may be helpful.
Even though when I'm in the app I get a vibration I don't get one when I'm not on the app. So if my phone is lockedand I get a notification I don't know unless I'm looking at my phone10 votes
Thanks for this recommendation! Just so I am clear, would you like to receive a vibration when your phone is locked and someone has messaged you?
I have an iphone four without the new ios, and i cant post, comment, message anyone, i wish that we could still be able to use the older version, and secondly, it woul be really cool to have a website for like this app fo people who dosen't have there phone3 votes
Interesting, do you have iOS 6 or iOS 7 installed? Also is it an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4s?
When a post is super long sometimes it takes up a lot of the feed. Maybe do like a "See more/see less" type thing for posts that go over a certain word count?12 votes
I found someone in the same town as me, and her information says that, yet her profile is trying to tell me she lives 3,700 miles away or something. I have no idea how close people are or anything.14 votes
It’s possible that your friend’s location services are not enabled for Distinc.tt. It shouldn’t show her as that far away, so we’ll look into that issue, but she may be able to solve her problem by enabling location services in her phone’s settings.
What about it isn’t working?
Okay, I know this probably sounds stupid but I have been on others apps like this that have communication games. For example there would be a section somewhere on the app that had the two communication games. One being a "hang man" or finish the sentence that you could play with a bunch of people on the app. If that's too much, than, how about something like the app meet me has.5 votes
These are great ideas! Definitely something we need to think about more. If you ever have any other ideas for fun games or ways of making the app more enjoyable, please share them here or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
