Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps, too (hitting almost 50 million users back in late 2014), meaning the likelihood of matching with someone you’re interested in who doesn’t live super far away is greater than with apps that have fewer users.Download now from: i Tunes Google Play Ok Cupid is one of the few dating apps that doesn’t require Facebook to sign up.
But most of the time, the Tinder experience will consist of flicking through profiles like channels on the television.Tinder actually has one of the best user interfaces of any dating app around.Ok Cupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners.The interface is extremely clunky and the photos are a little small.If that interface is too chaotic for you, tap the “quickmatch” option, which restricts the results to photos only.
You can like people or message them in a similar fashion to Tinder, but messaging is your better bet: Users can see who has liked them only if they have upgraded to “A-list” status.
The photos are large, the app is — comparatively speaking — svelte, and setting up your profile is pretty painless. Also, no one can message you unless you have also expressed an interest in them, which means you get no unsolicited messages.
While there are a fair few people on Tinder who use it strictly to collect swipes, many people are actually inclined to meet up in real life, which is not always the case with dating apps.
All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.
To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.
That chat room expires after eight days, regardless of whether you’ve talked with your bagel or not.
