  • Shallow - don’t waste your time

    Very strange application process. From what I’ve heard this app seems to be for extremely shallow people who have no real purpose in the world. I don’t feel bad for being waitlisted or rejected as I work in the medical field and actually do something purposeful with my life and am not a self-centered moron. I don’t use instagram because I have better things to do with my time other than wait for likes. Get off your phone and go get a real life. Try looking for like-minded people around you, not on your phone. Tried this at the suggestion of a friend; yikes what a waste of time.

    I can’t give it a proper rating it because I have not been able to use it since I have been accepted. There is a bug in the set up process. you have add 4 photos for your slideshow. Every time I go to add the photos it doesn’t add then I try to go to the next screen and it tells me to select 4 photos. I already did that multiple times. They told me to restart my phone. Nothing works it’s super annoying and they aren’t doing anything to fix it.
  • Terrible Dating App

    Not worth the monthly service fee. It’s an app based off hype. I always get notifications that there’s no matches in lower Manhattan. The politics behind who gets approved and who doesn’t is annoying. Not many people of color get access. If you want to feel included by all means download but you’re better off with all the other free dating apps. I’ve had this app for over a year and I’m finally canceling my membership. It was pointless.
  • Discriminatory Against Black Women

    Racist and discriminatory selection process against black women. If you look at the screenshots provided by the app, no black female user (or model) is presented, at the time of this review. The one black guy used works for the company -apparently he fills the quota. I have multiple black female friends with noteworthy accomplishments in the entertainment industry who weren’t accepted on Raya, yet I know of multiple non-black women who literally have done nothing professionally, and have hundreds of thousands less followers on Instagram. Raya mentions it determines the applicants’ worthiness by the quality of the applicants’ followers. The black female friends I speak of have numerous verified accounts following them. For those who question if Raya’s algorithm can account for race, be reminded Instagram is owned by Facebook. I have created ads on both Facebook and Instagram in which I was able to select my audience’s demographics including race, income, education level, etc. When you allow an app or website access to your Instagram, they’re able to see all of the information listed above. Black women and Asian men are the least sought after groups on dating apps, and discriminatory behavior by apps only worsen the problem. Zero excuses for Raya’s racist and discriminatory behavior.

    Great app
  • Waste of Time / Money

    Lol I want / need a refund. It renewed my subscription despite the fact that I only selected one month to pay for services. Now I’m being charged for a second month even though I NEVER use the app. I would really appreciate a response to this review as I’m very unhappy with the charge. It says “email Raya” on the app but doesn’t even navigate me to do such and there is no way to reach customer service outside of the app. Socially, the app is boring. People are boring. I want my money back.
  • Waiting list?

    A dating app that puts you on a waiting list?!?! Get f*cked, Raya.
  • Can’t update application

    Once waitlisted, they never let you reapply even if your situation changes. Applied 3 years ago and was waitlisted, but now work on some of the top TV shows. Doesn’t matter though since this app is not about being a creative but about being Instafamous.
  • A Joke

    I was interested in this app to connect with likeminded, creative souls but when they say it’s for “artists” they mean “influencers” & elitist socialites. It’s hilarious to me that you must have an Instagram account to even sign up, yet when you go to their Instagram account there’s not even 1 post. Not all artists, creatives, entertainers or writers dedicate their lives to the overrated life of swipes, likes and follows. If an app is going to waitlist people, then maybe ask for an actual resume or proof that the person meets that criteria instead of basing it off of looks, followers & the ability to master a plethora of filters. From the other reviews you can see the app is Glitch City, white washed, shallow & a tiny pool of the same people over and over again. I’ll stick to art festivals, LA trips, book shops & real life where people can’t wear their filters or have a follower boosted ego.
