Tinder, POF, and OKCupid are great dating apps, but what alternatives are there for those of you with iPhone and Android devices? Today we thought we would look at what other apps are available, although we will take a look at the three big players just to see what makes them so popular.
First up we have Tinder, and we thought we would start by telling you that this app received an update back in March for iOS and April for the Android version. The latest version of Tinder fixed the issue for ordering cards, and the issue where some people were booted off has also been resolved.
What users love about Tinder is how it is able to find people near you and then connects them to you, but only if you are interested in them. If you do like them and they like you back, Tinder will then introduce you to them. There are Apps similar to Tinder, which we will get to later.
POF — Plenty of Fish is very different to the likes of Match.com or Eharmony because the service will help to find the right partner for you for free. More than 50,000 people join POF everyday, making it the largest dating community. Both the Android and iOS versions were updated last month to revolve the crash issues and other bugs, along with improving conversations. You will find Apps similar to POF below.
We are told that OkCupid is the best dating service on the planet, but we would rather you make that judgment because we have never used a dating service. However, the reviews for this service seem positive on the whole, which must have something to do with its many features, such as being able to meet and chat with new people, find people thanks to the use of powerful algorithms, and being able to rate a profile. The Android version of this app had an update around two weeks ago, whereas the iOS version has not been updated since last October. We will now look at Apps similar to OKCupid.
If these apps are not for you – and wish to try one similar to Tinder, POF, and OKCupid, then one that you should give a try is Lulu. There is one thing you need to know from the start; the Lulu service is just for girls looking for the right guy. Because this site is just for the ladies, there are more specific questions to be answered, along with some great quizzes on relationships and friendships. This is a little like a gossip service as well, as you will get the latest information on who is charming and the perfect catch. The Lulu app is available on Android and iOS and both received updates last month to the Notification Center and now offering more guys to appear on your Dashboard.
Hinge for Android and iOS devices lets you find great people through your friends. However, this app is specific to certain areas, which is one of the things that make this app rather good. The community is much smaller, and so it feels more personal, unlike some of the other big dating service apps. Each day you will be sent possible matches that has been gathered from your social circles, and if you like the profile of someone and they like you back, Hinge will then make the introduction so you can start to chat with each other.
Finally, we could not list a few dating service apps without including Coffee Meets Bagel (CMB). This is one of those more intimate services as well, as each day at Noon Coffee Meets Bagel will introduce you to a single person that has been nominated to you because you have mutual friends. You cannot ignore this as you need to either Like or Pass this match within 24 hours, more than enough time to make up your mind. The iOS version of CMB was updated just two days ago, and as for the Android version, there isn’t one.
There you have it, three of the biggest dating apps available, and three that are great alternatives, but which gets your vote?
