Most popular Dating Apps

Dating Apps are now often the tool of choice when it comes to finding a partner – no matter if it is for a relationship or just sex. 
But it can be very difficult to find the right Dating App for yourself from the multitude of offers.

How do Dating Apps work?

1. Create a profile: Upload pictures; create a profile slogan describing yourself; specify your search parameter 
2. Set filters: To limit your search, you can set age limits, maximum distance, sexual orientation and other filters
3. Accept or reject candidates
4. Start chatting 
5. Have a date in person  
It varies from App to App whether you can register without a Facebook account, a profile picture, fees, activated tracking function and mobile phone number or not.

Choose candidates/photos you like, chat, date. 

Which App is biggest in which country?

As you can see on the world map, the different Dating Apps are spread all over the world. 
With America, Australia, a large part of Europe and India, Tinder is represented in the major industrial nations and enjoys great popularity there. 
Badoo, on the other hand, is a pioneer in the Eastern European, South American and Asian markets. At the same time, the London Dating App is also found in parts of Africa. 
Furthermore, the German-speaking countries are covered by Lovoo, Russia and Egypt by Frim and China by Momo.

Tinder and Badoo are the 2 Top Dating Apps. 

Which App is downloaded most often?

Tinder and Badoo are the most downloaded Apps in Google Play Store. With over 100 million downloads each, they are the absolute leaders in the Dating industry. 
Being strong in Central Europe, Lovoo follows the two market leaders with 50 million downloads. Further behind comes Frim with 15 million users.

Again Badoo and Tinder.

Do you need the App?

Both Badoo and Tinder work just as smoothly on the PC as they do as an App. In addition to the familiar login functions via Facebook, Google, or mobile phone number, you can also log into Badoo via MSN, VKontakte, Odnoklassniki, Yandex and Mail.Ru. 
Lovoo can also be reached online without an App, but the registration is only possible with Mail or Facebook. 
Frim instead only works as an App.

Tinder, Badoo and Lovoo – also works on the website

Advantages of Dating Apps

Free of charge: Most Dating Apps work great for free. Even though almost all Apps have a paid upgrade, very few users use them – especially since it works fine without one. 

Fast: With just a thumb swipe, you can connect with people who are eager to date, write with them and meet them immediately. Whether you are new to a place or have lived there forever.  

Visual: The advantage of the Apps is that you can decide within fractions of a second and usually only with one or a few pictures whether you find the person attractive or not. Even if this is very superficial, many people are visually influenced – therefore the system works very well.

Quick and dirty. 

Which App is the right one for me?

The single rate on Tinder is 54%. It shows, that not all users of a Dating App are looking for love. Many are looking for a one-night stand or Friend with Benefits. 
If you really want a firm relationship and don’t want to take a long way round, Tinder and Co. are probably not 100% right for you – even though Dating Apps are increasingly becoming the starting point for a relationship, too.
However, if you want to spend some pleasant hours with a visually appealing person, the swiping Apps, which are reducing everyone to outward appearances, are perfect for you.

For casual Dating the following Apps work great.
