A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.
Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?
A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like ApkClean.net goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading). As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.
Q: Why ApkClean.net can guarantee APK 100% safe?
A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from ApkClean.net, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.
Q: What are Android App permissions?
A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

1 ★I got kicked off the app after a few months of being a subscriber for no known or identified reason. I had a regular profile, with regular information and pictures. Nothing Crazy or sexual. I did not contact anyone on the app inappropriately. I had a bunch of likes on the app, and was talking with several women, when all of a sudden my account was disabled without notice or reason. After contacting customer service several times, I still was made unaware why my account was suspended?
2 ★I downloaded the app yesterday evening. The interface is user friendly and i like the simplicity of it that other apps no longer have: swipe, match, chat. BUT this evening as I am using the app, I suddenly get booted and receive a message that my profile has been disabled!! I have no idea why and what makes it worse is that I was mid convo with a great match. I reached out to customer service and I've got fingers crossed for a quick resolve.
1 ★The tech support is atrocious. I've contacted support several times over a two week span. I paid for the elite membership but the app keeps stating my membership is free. The app always tells me to manage my subscription and when I do it my subscription states I'm an elite member. It's utterly confusing and frustrating. The tech support response must be a lot faster especially for a paid monthly subscriber. I'm paying for a service I cannot use. I will not be renewing my subscription.
1 ★This app really just wants money. I have 7 likes and can't see them so I started spamming the like button to see if I'd get a match. Spammed the button until I hit my like limit for the day and not a single like was a match. It's obvious the app wants u to buy its monthly subscriptions to see your matches. Not only that, I set my distance to 30 miles yet it keep showing me women 100+ miles away and rarely shows anyone fitting my distance preference. Overall, app is a cash grab and complete trash
1 ★The app just wouldn't open for over a month. And that happened just when I had upgraded to 'Elite' membership and paid for it. Just tells me it's stopped working. I have sent report and emails to their customer service email address. Nobody has been even decent enough to acknowledge receipt much less try to fix it. So I ask:did this app go from OKayish to a scam?
1 ★I am giving this app a one star. The only reason I can't give it less is because the option is not there. My reason? I get notifications that I got likes and as soon as I open the app, the likes disappear. This doesn't happen every once in a while. This happens EVERYTIME! I was told to Uninstaller it and reinstall it but it still doesn't work.
1 ★This app has bugs that keep forcing it to stop. I havent been able to log in for a while now, (since feb 2nd). An when i contacted the developers of the app an followed all thier prompts, the app still doesnt work! It keeps shutting down. Its raggedy! Dont waste your time or money on this app. At this point, i just want it fixed so i can get in there an remove my pictures an profile.
1 ★The lack of filters is frustrating. Also, why ask my preferred age range and distance if I'll continue to see profiles of men that don't fit my preferences? Paid for a 6 month subscription just to see a bunch of men 10 years younger than my preference or men who live on the other side of the country. Also can't stay logged in to the app, it logs me out and I have to do the whole verification code process. Love my Black people but this app is a waste of money and time.
3 ★The distance and age preferences routinely reset, but my biggest grievance is that you can't be in this class of apps that takes a relatively shallow approach to creating matches- people's appearance- and then have a problem integrating and uploading photos. That undermines the effectiveness of the app. Photos won't upload, upload incorrectly, etc. My IG & FB photos aren't available to upload. Something is off with the app's integration on 3rd party platforms. Second time has not been a charm...
2 ★3-13-21: received a response from tech support hoping they can fix the issue. 2-28-21: Changed my review... It's no longer 4 stars as I cant access the app. It will not open at all, it keeps stoping. I have uninstalled and installed... yet No luck! I also paid for membership. I should at least be reimburst if the app is down. Technical support needs to know how to advise customers on problem solving. Feed back from BLK would be helpful!
1 ★Swipe cards never load. No new message notifications. It's annoying.
2 ★I wouldn't pay for the subscription, yes you can see how many people liked you but when you go to view more pics or look closer at pictures you can't because it only shows you part of the picture and you can't see the other uploads which is a waste. I think you only get 1 boost with the subscription and you have to pay for the rest which is pointless if you already paid. Also its not good at highlighting new messages,sometimes there won't be any notice someone replied when you check ya inbox
