On the Hooof…
It couldn’t be simpler creating friendships on the hooof…
Set up your profile – We’ve all done one of these before! Just tell other hooofers a bit about yourself and what you’re thinking of doing.
Select up to 5 activities from our 3 categories: Sport, Entertainment or Leisure.
Tap the ‘People’ icon to search for guys that have selected the same activities as you, wherever you are.
Does Hooof cost anything?
No. Hooof is free to download and use. Our basic service will always be free although we plan on adding some fabulous premium features in the future.
What happens if no nearby match can be found?
Don’t forget we are still in the early stages of development and new people are downloading the app daily and we are still testing the app. So please bear with us. You can try selecting different activities and see if they are more popular or you keep checking in and see who’s new on Hooof.
Can I be informed about a match when I close the app?
Hooof can match you with like-minded guys when the app is running either when you are directly searching or if it is on in the background. You can sign out of the app if you are not looking to meet anyone or you can turn off notifications on your device. The choice is always yours when you’re available.
Why do I need to create a profile?
Hooof is a social matching app and we want you to get the most out of meeting new people. The best way to do this is to let others know a little about how amazing at tiddlywinks or tennis or Voguing you are. Your data is safe with us and your profile information is necessary in order to give you the best service we can provide.
Why can’t I see other users before I choose an activity?
We want you to be serious about connecting with people – to actually do stuff! Hooof is all about living today and being as spontaneous as possible, so we think you’ll agree that having an activity in mind before you see other profiles is a great way to reduce the urge to time-waste on your phone. You activity choices are naturally also a great conversation opener.
Can anyone get on Hooof?
Technically yes, but Hooof has been created to help gay men connect in a non-sexual way based on the huge range of activities we love to do.
Can I upload naughty images?
No! Hooof’s ethos is dignity and respect in our interactions with other users so a decently clad photo of you conveying something lovely about your personality and your interests is what Hooof is all about. We want you to share your inner beauty!
Where did the name Hooof come from?
From an old British saying, ‘On the hoof’ which means to do something spontaneously or while you are moving about. We added an extra ‘O’ in the middle because we think it looks fabulous! Check out our magazine website www.onthehooof.com for interesting articles and news about gay men doing interesting things.
Why isn’t Hooof available on Google Play?
For now, we are testing Hooof on the Apple Store. This is so we can concentrate getting everything right before we integrate the app for Android Users. There will be an announcement when it’s ready to go on Google Play.
