December 26, 2014 - Written By Tom Dawson

Whether or not you’re looking for someone new, just trying to meet new people or you’re ready to find the one, our Top 10 Dating Apps for Android should be able to help. A lot of these apps are of course tied to online services as well, and there’s a good variety here, with something for everyone.

Tagged

tagged

Tagged has been around for a while and it’s not just used for finding that special someone. More than that, it’s a tool for finding people near you, friends and so on, and building up a casual relationship before you’re ready to meet up or whatever else. Tagged is a nice app if you’re looking to get out more, just moved to a new area or you’re just in need of some fresh company. We’ve all been there after all.

DOWN

down

Yes, DOWN is what BangWithFriends used to be called and yes, the general premise is much the same. Now the app is called DOWN and they’ve toned things down a little bit as well. We’re not going to judge those who try to erm, get down, with their Facebook friends and let’s face it some people’s situations are more complicated than we realize. Either way, if you need something like this, then DOWN is a good option.

eHarmony

eharmony

You’ve probably seen a TV spot or two for eHarmony, and some of you might already be members. eHarmony is a place to find that special someone, to connect with. eHarmony is a place where you can connect with others and build a relationship with someone concerning common interests, rather than just looks and such. If you’re looking to start something new and big in your life, then eHarmony is the service you want to be enrolled in.

POF

pof

POF is a dating app noted for how many features it offers for free. It gives you free access to the dating algorithm, your messages and the ability to see who’s online at that very moment. While POF isn’t the Rolls Royce of dating apps, it’s free and easy to use, and for a lot of people it’s their first step into the murky world of online dating. While not exactly a testimonial, a close friend of mine whom I’ve known years met a girl on POF, and they’re now engaged and living together.

Zoosk

zoosk

Another light hearted approach  to finding someone to love, Zoosk has gone from strength-to-strength. It’s constantly learning who you are, and it’ll get smarter over time to make sure that it keeps giving you the matches that you need. Using the SmartPick technology, Zoosk promises to find you a match best on compatibility alone. It’s a good service and one that those looking for something not too serious, but not too loose should think about.

BeNaughty

benaughty

BeNaughty is, yes, another app like DOWN and Tinder. It’s not used to find your next serious relationship, although that’s certainly a possibility. BeNaughty is an app and online service for those basically looking for fun. We can skip the jokes of waking up full of regret, but yes BeNaughty is an app that makes no illusion as to what it’s there for.

OKCupid

okcupid

OKCupid might not be the best dating app out there, but it is fairly simple. Besides it’s been downloaded over 5 Million times so there must be something good here. OKCupid is nice and simple, with all the right boxes ticked and you should be able to get somewhere with this.

Match.com

match

match.com is like eHarmony in that it’s there to help you find something meaningful, rather than just something for a night or for a few weeks. If you’ve tried all the others and you’re looing for something to help you find an honest relationship then match.com could help you. It is a shame that a lot of the more compelling reasons to use match in the first place are behind a paywall, but then again this is a professional service that take things very seriously.

Tinder

tinder

Ah yes, Tinder. You didn’t think we’d have a list without Tinder now did we? By now, you probably know everything there is about Tinder, but essentially this dating for the 21st Century, in all of its throwaway glory. Don’t like the look of someone? Swipe away. Before the two of you can even chat, you both need to approve each other, which is mostly based on looks, and yes, we all know what Tinder is mostly used for. It’s hard to argue with their success though, so maybe this is worth giving a go.

Badoo

badoo

 

Badoo, like many other apps, concentrates on the people nearby. However, unlike other apps it does so by figuring out who you’ve bumped into in the same vicinity and who’s friends with your friends. The Android app could do with some work, but this is a decent offering overall.
