Tinder was named the most popular dating app, with 42 percent of those polled mentioning it.
That percentage was much higher among Millennials, with 70% of them admitting to using it. And it’s easy to understand why: the app is constantly introducing new and exciting features, such as allowing users to name their favorite song as their “anthem” and the opportunity to “Super Like” someone.
Match was ranked second in ReportLinker’s findings, with 32 percent of mentions. Match, like other of its online competitors, distinguishes itself by displaying where you and another user crossed paths in real life via their “Missed Connections” function. If you happen to run into each other at a bookshop, for example, you’ve already established a shared interest, which is a good start.
With 26% of mentions, PlentyOfFish (POF) made the top four applications and came in third place as the most popular dating app. Unlike many other dating apps, POF does not need you to connect your Facebook account. As a result, you can remain anonymous by using a pseudonym rather than your real name, which has its own set of advantages.
OkCupid (OKC), which earned 25% of mentions, rounded out the top four dating applications. One new feature of the app is that users will no longer be able to create usernames. Instead, you should call yourself by your first name. OKC is also known for its odd inquiries, such as “Is it OK to answer your cell phone when out with a friend or on a date?” As you can expect, they’re great discussion starters.
So there you have it: 2018’s most popular dating apps. What are you waiting for if you haven’t tried all four of the above? In any event, no matter whatever app you choose, have fun matching/swiping/dating.
