The app certainly has a wider user base, as they are the front-runners in the category. Be it a hookup or a happily after tale, just swipe right and let Tinder work its magic.


Hinge is another app in the dating space that comes with a few more features. It requires your facebook profile like most apps and shows you not just your common friends but the common interests you share as well. Your profile is not a descriptor like in Tinder, you answer a series of questions that are streamlined to help portray you in a better manner than just a descriptor. Slight drawback, if you’re not on social media apps like Facebook or Instagram you are a bit stuck in terms of a gallery and will have no images to put up.

Setting up a Happn profile is pretty standard and you can easily give your preference as to what would you like to do on a date. It also allows you to connect your Facebook account with it.

An app that is primarily designed keeping women in mind but have surprisingly not kept the men at bay. It’s as simple as if two opposite genders match, then Bumble only allows the woman to text first, with a 24-hour clock on the match, post that the match will seize to exist. This works great because girls usually never respond to ice breakers! Now here’s their chance to woo the men for a change.

The app has a zero tolerance policy with any pornographic material and asks its users to respect its code of conduct, which is a sigh of relief for both male and female users.
