Even though everyone knows about these apps, they’re still worth considering.
This is especially true since recent updates have made the apps more intuitive, more interactive, and more open to different dating preferences.
It was actually mind-boggling how many of the different apps I downloaded had a design similar to Tinder’s, complete with swipe right/swipe left directions.
Bumble has only been available for four months at this point, but these functions have made it incredibly popular with women, as women’s experiences with online dating Badoo (Android/i OS): Badoo also essentially functions the same as Tinder, but gives a little more biographical information than Tinder’s allotted 500 characters.
Badoo has places for users to list their interests and demographic information, as well as a space on their profile dedicated to awards that can be won by being active on the app.
Bumble (i OS only): Bumble was actually created by an employee of Tinder after she left the company, and was created with an intent to discourage gender issues in online dating.
Bumble includes almost all of the same features as Tinder, but has two key differences – women are the only ones who can message a match first, and if they don’t message within twenty-four hours of matching the match disappears.
