OKCupid has a brilliant app that again, offers access to a massive userbase in the same way as the site. The app is constantly updated with new features which keeps it fresh and interesting. It can be integrated with Instagram while also offering potential matches based on “Flavors” such as Beard Lovers, World Travellers or Nerds.

12. Tinder

Tinder is one of the more famous apps. The idea behind the app is to make shallow, quick judgements on people by swiping in a specific direction depending on whether you like them or not. You can set up your profile on the app and meet people who are in the same area as you.

13. QuickFlirt.com

The name explains itself – QuickFlirt.com makes online dating fun, quick and easy. It is the place where singles mingle together, chat, and build up flirty connections in one click. The world record for the quickest flirt is yet to be established, but here more than a million users send tens of thousands of flirty messages daily.

Create a profile, add photos and speak to like-minded individuals. The app is slick and fun to use and that is what makes it extremely appealing.

15. Coffee Meets Bagel

cmb-free-dating-app

This app is all about quality as opposed to quantity because every day it brings you a “bagel” which is match that shares mutual Facebook friends. This then gives you 24 hours to decide whether you like them or not. A private chatroom can be used if it is a match while a wide range of features makes this a fun app to use.

16. Grindr

This app is aimed at gay and bisexual men who want to meet with like-minded men in their area. The profile set up is simple and choosing a “tribe” will describe your type making it easy to get chatting to people in minutes. It is free to use although there is a premium version available that offers additional features.

17. Match.com

In the same way as it is one of the best sites, Match.com also offers one of the best apps. This app keeps users in touch with people they like with “winks” on a daily basis. There are extra features available by taking out a subscription but the app is certainly a great option to those looking to date.

18. PlentyOfFish app

The app is free but just like the site, it provides access to a huge selection of members – 70 million in total. Setting up a profile is simple and within minutes it is possible to get searching through potential matches. The app is constantly being updated with features such as VoIP calling and Instagram images.

19. Showreal

showreal-video-based-dating-app

This is an app that offers something slightly different. A video introduction is required here, where you are asked four question to answer in a five second video clip. This will showcase your personality in just a few seconds but you will also have the ability to keep or cut potential matches. Quick and snappy – a different take on online dating.

20. Bumble

Users have the option to create an account or sign up using Facebook. This idea here is that the queen bee (female) must make the first move after two people get in touch and become part of each other’s hive. Time is of the essence here because users only have 24 hours to contact them or the connection disappears into the abyss. A nifty, clever way to meet people that incorporates a bit of fun!
