Tinder is a terrible app if you want to date. It only shows you someone’s picture and age. But it’s fun to swipe people away as Hot or Not. If someone thinks you’re hot, you can chat.
Bumble flips the web dating paradigm on its head by forcing women to make the first move. Match with someone (the app functions pretty much exactly like Tinder) and the woman has 24 hours to send a message or the match expires.
Prefer not to match up with random strangers in Tinder? Hinge uses your Facebook friends and common interests to make connections, rather than relying on you simply finding another person attractive. It does this through a Tinder-like interface where it asks you simple questions on your likes and dislikes. Simply swipe left or right to answer the questions and see who you match with.
Grindr is the largest social networking app for gay, bi, trans, and queer people. Using your phone’s location, you can find other members close by to talk to, swap photos with, or meet in person.
