This has to be one of the most popular apps, because of it’s instantaneous “browsing” features. Tinder shows you a photo, name and age of a suggested profile. You can choose to swipe right to like them, or swipe left to pass. If you an a partner have swiped right on each other, you are given access to write a message to each other.
With a very friendly user interface, this is one of the easiest dating apps around.
OkCupid is one of the few dating apps that doesn’t require you to connect your profile to Facebook. There is a very long profile form to complete, as well as responses you wish your partner to have. You are also able to choose what information is public and what is private. In order to browse you tap the “Matches” button to see who might be a match based on your responses.
The user interface is not as friendly as Tinder, but you are able to get a better background on your matches.
Coffee Meets Bagel
This one is very much connected to Facebook. You have to set up your profile and input your preferences. It will send you one “bagel” a day of a person you potentially match. You then have 24 hours to decide if you want to “like” or “pass”. If you both have liked each other, then you can send each other a private message.
Sometimes the slow pace of getting sent only 1 bagel a day can be frustrating and the app can be glitchy. But a promising start for this new runner.
