If you wear glasses or are into people who do, try Spex, for example. But whether you’re after a meaningful relationship or just some casual dates, there’s an almost overwhelming number of dating apps from which to choose nowadays.
We set ourselves the challenge of trying as many as we could over the course of six weeks.
In particular, Hinge, one of our favorites, did not fare well.
Here is America's ranking of 11 popular dating apps, as measured by Applause: Hinge's innovation was that it only matched you with your extended social network — friends of friends.
But that doesn't mean all dating apps are created equal.
App analytics company Applause recently completed a study of 97 dating apps to see which ones were meeting user expectations.
To qualify, an app had to have more than 2,000 reviews across the App Store and the Google Play store.
Even though we received fewer messages compared to other sites, we rated 40 percent “good” — the most out of the seven sites we tested.
That’s in large part because only mutual matches can message each other: both parties have to “swipe right” before they can say hello, which cuts way down on spam.
