It is almost two decades since online dating became an ‘in’ thing. So it is time to find out which sites are still working well. Though 20 years is a small time in human history, thanks to the technological advancements, it feels like a long time ago. In this article, we will review the best dating apps for 2019.
Tinder is still the number one dating app all around the world. Its ease of use and popularity is still unmatched, and the app is envied by the rest of the wannabe crowd. The free app started in 2012 and has successfully monetized its offering and become profitable in the last few years. So it will be hard for others to catch up with the trendsetter.
Bumble is a Tinder-wannabe with a focus on women. The app has survived despite its low popularity. Since people are lazy, it is unlikely to grow big any time soon. Too much focus on women has driven many men to abandon the app.
Hinge is a new entrant in the dating market, and to date, it has been a great way to find dates. It is more comprehensive than Tinder and not as restrictive as Bumble. Its user base is growing steadily enough to keep it, and their monetization has not affected the free usage capabilities. So people will stick around and possibly find someone they like.
This site has been around for ages. Because of its bad UI and terrible ‘message everyone’ nature, most people abandoned it. Thankfully, OKC has woken up from a long slumber and corrected those mistakes. Now only if you match each other, messages will get through. This has allowed women to come back to the app.
Almost every other app in the market does not live up to the standards set by these.
