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.
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.
When it comes to online dating, there is a lot of comfort and success in choosing apps that are already popular (unsurprisingly, dating apps without a lot of users tend to not work very well).
I did find that the interface for this app was more confusing than most of the others on this list – sometimes I would end up on a page without being entirely sure how I got there.
Its simplicity has been part of what makes it so attractive to its users – using geolocation, the app shows users profiles of their preferred gender and age-range within a set geographical area.
Profiles consist only of a first name, an age, a 500-character description, and up to six photos.
The focus that Tinder places on appearances has meant that the app has gained a reputation for being a “hook-up” app.
While there are definitely stories about people meeting their significant others on Tinder, those stories tend to be the exception rather than the rule!
However, its most recent update included features (such as the ability to view profiles of individuals who aren’t in your local area or undo an accidental swipe) that can only be accessed by a monthly subscription fee to an upgraded version of Tinder called Tinder Plus.
