The best dating apps for iPhone and Android users are here! Our top five list covers the most widely used and recognized location-based dating services apps for iPhone and Android. These free dating apps are immensely popular with smartphone users, and are both iPhone dating apps and android dating apps. It’s no question the substantial amount of people that use dating services, and now with the immense popularity of the smartphone, the number of mobile apps for dating services is somewhat overwhelming. Not only are there dating apps for your mobile, but long before any of this there was dating services provided by newspapers and television programs. First, we turn on the TV and get bombarded with advertisements for commercials for “Christian Mingle”, “Match.com”, and “Ok Cupid”, all promising the same results- meet your future wife/husband/partner here- no strings attached! But who wants to spend hours on the computer searching for potential partners? Not only do many of these services assign membership fees, they can also be inconvenient and time-consuming. I mean what’s wrong with the real word? Maybe our packed calendars and busy work schedules? Have no fear, the best dating mobile apps are here (and these are just the tip of the iceberg)! Fun, quick, and easy. And, all available just a click away on your iPhone or Android device.
Top 5 Location-Based Dating Services Apps:
- Meet Moi
- How About We
1.) Skout: This free mobile app for iOS and android users is certainly one of the less creepy mobile apps we’ve seen. First, there are two separate communities for teens and adults, so there will be no age discrepancies or worries of being courted by a potential partner 20 years your junior. It’s also great that the decision is 100% in your court if you would like to make contact with someone or respond to someone who has contacted you. What Skout does is find people for you based on your location and interests, and you can decide if you would like to connect. This could mean linking up at the same concert downtown, your favorite local bar, or even a walking tour in Rome. The ball is in your court, and fate could have it your very match could be exactly where you are! For the strong believers in fate, this could be the app for you.
2.) MeetMoi: This smartphone app prides itself as “not another online dating app”. Well, that could be true…but it’s still a dating service, but one that we like! Meet Moi pairs two people with busy schedules who typically don’t have time for casual dating, and gives them the opportunity to plan a date or meeting. MeetMoi detects matching interests and locations for two registered users, and, if you are near a person who they deem is a match for you, you will both be alerted immediately and have the chance to meet right then and there! Sounds too good to be true right? Well, with any dating services app there is always the possibility that the person you match with is exactly the opposite…not your match. But you can decided this after MeetMoi makes your introduction and the two of you chat to decide if you’d like to meet. Who knows, your prince charming could be shopping just a block away.
3.) How About We: This location-based dating service app is both for singles and couples and has been praised already by The New York Times, Gawker, and Cosmopolitan for fun, exciting date ideas and keeping the love alive (all at an affordable price!). If you are single, you suggest a date idea starting with the phrase “how about we…” and then follow with something you’d like to do, such as wine tasting, an art gallery viewing, indoor soccer, you know name it. Then based on your suggestions and interests, How About We will send you suggestions from people they think you’ll like. You can meet offline and, if it doesn’t go well, at least you’ll have a fun date out of it and a check off your bucket list. For couples, you can sign up together and choose between dates you’d like to go on and get a membership discount of up to 75%! Tickets to sold out shows, anniversary specials, and even a concierge service can be included- they handle the details, you select.
4.) Badoo: This location-based dating app is a little more on the risky side, with 175,449,688 guys and girls active (as of March 19), but is so widely popular with a bigger pond to fish from. You can login with Facebook, browse users photos, share interest, and even date, while you can browse singles near you or far. The only caveat- you may have to browse through hundreds of users to find one you like. With a very indiscriminate filter- all are welcome.
5.) Zoosk: This iPhone and android app can be compared to Tinder, where you browse through pictures of locals singles, flirt online, and chat with people you’re interested in dating. Zoosk is available in 25 different languages and 80 countries, and also alerts you when people are interested or have viewed your online profile. It’s quick, easy, and free, and there’s really not much to Zoosk- which must be why it’s so widely popular. Most people only have their age, general location, name and profile picture, but if you do want to buff up your profile- that comes at a cost. You can buy Zoosk coins via PayPal or a bank transfer from your cell phone or obtain a membership to send gifts to other members, find out if someone has read your messages or profiles, or contact someone. To be honest, this app is really more for social networking, than for dating and compatibility.
