Messaging in Indonesian Cupid is a bit basic.  There is no free messaging, and those who do not have a premium membership will find it difficult to connect with other users.  Messaging does not support audio or video chat and may seem a bit outdated.

While messaging is not a free option, and requires a paid subscription, you can still “show interest” to members with a free membership.

What about the Android App?

Indonesian Cupid has an easy to use android app available through Google Play. Once you download the app, you can log in with your website credentials, and you will automatically be directed to your matches.  While using the app, this will be your landing page.

While the website version has full profiles as the main feature, the app tends to focus on photos.  Here, the “show interest” heart icon will appear beneath a picture.  Clicking on the individual’s name will take you to the full profile.

What about iOS users?  Well, the app store does not have a version for you yet but worry not.  The website has a mobile version that is made for those looking to match on the go.

Real Life Review

“I was working abroad in Indonesia for a few years and used this site. Being a foreigner, I was surprised to find how well liked I was by the local women. (I assure you I am no Johnny Depp, but my looks were good enough!).

I enjoy how easy the site is to use. It may not have a lot of bells and whistles, but it gets the job done (If you’re willing to pay! Ha!). I have met so many amazing and beautiful women on this site. I have even been able to keep in touch with some of them. It’s great, now when I head back for vacation, it’s like returning to friends who have been waiting for me. My only complaint is, I wish there were more benefits for standard users. Don’t get me wrong, the app is excellent, but it may cost you some money before you can really enjoy what this site has to offer. .” – James, Contractor 37
