Who doesn’t know about Tinder? It has established itself as the leading site for singles to simply swipe away until you see the potential. It has over 57 million users, so you won’t have any shortage of options. Moreover, the average age of its user falls between 18 to 24 years old. As for the success rate, 95% of the Tinder users have met their matches in the same week of matching.

All you do is create a simple profile with simple details about yourself that include a few photos, an introduction, and details regarding your interest – and you are all set for the Tinder world. The app displays singles within your area and has included new features that keep adding value to the otherwise superficial ‘hookup’ app, that it has become.

Those features include a loop video feature, geo-location-based places that allow matching with people who share similar hangouts as you, and by far the best addition – the Tinder Safety Center feature that rolled out this January.

Safety Center feature includes integration with a safety app called Noonlight, that offers a panic button in case of a date-gone-wrong and connects the victim with personal emergency services.

This is a great way to battle the dark side of technology. Which is associated with meeting total strangers in real-life. The mobile app development process has revolutionized human lives enabling mobile app development companies to come up with better and robust solutions coupled with futuristic technologies like Artificial Intelligence.

Unlike Tinder that has branched into a broad network for online dating, Coffee Meets Bagel has a softer approach; prioritizing quality over quantity. Their site reiterates the value of meaningful and real connections over flings. Keeping the old tradition of men making the first move, the app sends men a small selection of potential matches on the basis of their profiles and preferences. In turn, the women are sent the matches that have shown interest in them. After which they can accept or reject.

If both feel the need to take it further, the dating app then sets up a 7-day chat window and icebreaker. Which isn’t a bad deal considering a few chats can be enough to see if there is potential for a long-term relationship or not.
