Are you hot or are you not? Hot or Not will tell, now on Windows Phone

Hot or Not is a service which works in a similar way to how Facebook was managed some time ago before being used by millions of people worldwide. You load up the app, sign in with either Facebook or your email and you're good to go. What you do from here is upload the "best" photos of yourself, connect with other people, rating them and becoming "hot". That's essentially Hot or Not in a nutshell, and now an official Windows Phone app is available on the store.

When checking another Hot or Not user out, you're provided with two options. These determine whether you find that person hot or not (surprisingly). Accumulating said selections from the vast array of users reflects in an overall score. The reason behind using the app is to see how popular you are, as well as your friends. It's also possible to see a list of hottest people located nearby your current location – perfect for festivals, college campus, or simply hanging out in the city. So long as you want to do so with people whom the world have deemed to be hot.

Hot or Not

It's possible to browse profiles, build on popularity and even connect with people. So it's not simply a rating app, but a social network built on that concept. To help everyone get along, the developers have implemented a messaging system, perfect for those on the move who need to leave a quick reply. It's worth checking out if you want to meet new people with similar interests, or just wish to boost your ego.

Download Hot or Not from the Windows Phone Store for free. It appears the app requires Facebook to create an account and function. That's worth considering when looking at the app.

  • I'm"hot" after 3 shots of tequila.
  • gg
  • Nice app, well done. But hey, on a completely unrelated note, is there a good self esteem boosting app I can download?
  • Same here and today is friday. Volatile Hydroxy Compounds are always good for the body.
  • Ethanol.. C2H5OH
  • Lol. But this is a big app. I'm shocked he didn't mention that.
  • Sounds like this is a self-esteem crusher. :-/
  • Yes! I see a lawsuit... With friends getting mad at each other and taking bad pictures.. Then creating fake accounts.. To purposely show the world a bad image of someone mad at another... -- Bam --
  • Absolutely. That's the fun of it. Some of the pics are hilarious (at least they used to be years ago).
  • Man, I remember like 15 years ago my friends put a terrible picture of me on AmIHotOrNot (that's what it was called back then) and back then, you rated people on a scale of 1-10.  I think I scored 0.7 out of 10.  One of my proudest moments.   I'm just surprised this service/site still exists after all this time
  • Lol I love your story, it has everything! Drama, betrayal, and irony! XD
    -- Bam -- Wait .7 or full 7? If 1-10, can't get a .7 ... So I guess 7
  • LOL, good catch.  Yes, I had a brain fart.  It was actually 1.7.  Really low in other words hahaha.  The picture had my gut hanging out of my shirt and my expression gave me quadruple chins.  I wish I had a screen capture of it.
  • I remember messing with the web version way back then in college. Good times.
  • I thought the same thing..."I can't believe this site still exists!". Back in college my buddy and I had a debate as to who was dating the hotter girl, so we took a pic of our GFs with out them knowing and put them up on it. I won :D Plus, my girl didn't get THAT mad at me... After all we have been married for 7 years now, haha.
  • Lol, I met my wife almost 11 years ago on hot or not.
  • I'll assume you both clicked hot
  • i am guessing that it is full of fake profiles :P
  • No, I am real.... ;)
  • I will never use Facebook, if these companies can't support their own login servers, then they're not worth it.
  • You can register on the site, and enter with email. "Just checked, you can't"
  • Read. The. Article.
  • Read. The. Last. Paragraph.
  • Just read
  • "It appears the app requires Facebook to create an account and function." This agrees with you.. Idk what they are trying to convince you otherwise of...
  • Isnt this app ancient?
  • Facebook ? I have already given lots of app permissions to fb and that speech given by Mark , after that i am sure i can block them.. Not again give access to fb.?!
  • I'm gonna download this and downrate everybody so I don't feel so ugly
  • "Hot or Not?" - Only a Sith deals in absolutes.
  • ^^^YES
  • Not.
  • You are hot Rich !
  • Lol, i used to be on websites like this. Was fun for a time. Generally i learnt that i wasn't hot, but the girls i liked were, and highly unavailable. This created a rather unrealistic idea within me of how hard it was to get a girlfriend. Turns out in real life, women look for something quite different. Confidence, style, character, personality, looking after oneself, all of these matter so much more.
  • Or you could be hot and girls can feed you grapes on the sofa...JK you are correct though carry on.
  • Don't get this.
  • Like I have to ask.
  • I'm hot! Cortana told
  • Cool. Been waiting for this app.
  • Uggghhhh
  • Pft, I don't need an app for that. I have a WP, I'm automatically hot. As well as a Surface 2 and Xbox One.. Blazing hot.. And my looks. I'm a fucking fire tornado!! I'm on fire!! AHHHH
  • DANG!
  • LOL you're on fire!
  • OMG finally! I'm happy that a lot of apps are finally coming to Windows Phone!
  • Uh tinder anybody?
  • "He's not coming.." -- Bam --
  • This app was a website starting around 2000. The developer of tinder was probably in diapers.
  • I'm married. 30+ years. We're lucky if we're awake.
  • Lol looking forward to that
  • I didn't know this site was still around, but of course it is.... Humanity is obsessed with vanity.
  • Something else teenagers in high school do not need.
  • It's skanky app day!
  • Huh? What else came out today?
  • Another nonsense app.
  • I don't need an app to tell me if I'm hot or not. I have a GF for that...
  • Maybe now my teenage niece would consider giving up that iPhone. What a ridiculous app.
  • Oh just don't, really just don't...
  • I can't find the app?
