Top 9 Dating Apps For Android and iOS Users in 2017
Coffee Meets Bagel (Android, iOS):
Feel afraid or awkward to meet a complete stranger? The CMB app resolves it by sending you a match sharing mutual Facebook friends. They send you a “bagel” everyday, and you get 24 hour to like it or pass it along. If both the users like each other, a private chat opens up allowing both the users to make further conversation. There is also a paid service within app called “beans’, which is like a virtual currency; purchasing it will unlock a feature that allows you to view the mutual friends of your match.
Tinder (Android, iOS):
Take all the snap judgmental calls – ‘swipe them left and right’, if that’s how you like to roll, kudos to you, the app encourages you to do exactly that. Put down five of your most ‘cost-heavy’ photographs, add your bio, and you are good to go, to ride the ‘Highway To Hell’. The app puts together the singles in your area, so swipe left to decline and right to accept based on whose profile you like. If the swipe matches, you are lucky to try to woo them on the chat. Some new feature update includes GIF messaging and ‘like‘ chat messages.
Happn (Android, iOS):
Ever wanted to know people who were always around you though way of fate? Happn checks people who have crossed paths with you in real life – how often they have been around you – in the nearby or same place and time. You also get to like them privately while still maintaining anonymity as their proximity to you will be notified on the timeline. It offers this in-app purchase named “Charm” that you can use to show the person that you like them. Same like Tinder, if both the users like each other, a dialogue box opens up between both of them for making further conversations.
OkCupid (Android, iOS):
Besides viable user base, Instagram Sync, personality trivia, few other features, and of course its popular messaging tool, OKCupid also keeps adding new and updating old features, one such example is the “Flavors” feature that allows potential matches to be categorized in flavours such as World Travellers, Beard Lovers, Kinky Nerds, etc. It also comes with a premium subscription plan that provides better search tools and lets you track users you like you.
Hinge (iOS: $10.99/month):
Hinge cuts down much of its gaming ‘thingie’, focussing more on important conversations and relationships. Hinge’s new interface provides a profile to fill with one’s pictures and stories. Users can then choose to like and comment on something in that profile. Each day, you can check out new recommendations, as well as see people who have liked something in your profile. The only downside to it is that you gotta spends some bucks to use it.

What PlentyOfFish is one of the most popular free dating app, with over 70 million user base. You will need to put basic information and then hit the search button to see find matches and message them.

Grindr (Android, iOS):
Grindr is an app developed for users of gay and bisexual orientation. Enter your username, profile pic, choose a “Tribe” that describes your type, and you are good to go. The free version of Grindr has advertisement despite being free, however, Grindr Xtra, its paid version, gives ad-free browsing, great search filters, and option for selecting multiple Tribes. Grindr Xtra provides push notification; the free version does not provide you with that support, which is kinda sad though.
Match.com (Android, iOS):
Match.com’s offers two types of dating experience. Free users can avail setting up profiles, uploading photographs, and send “winks“, however features such checking your profile viewers and profiles who have liked you – is reserved for its subscription scheme.
