In fact, even the classic apps often had an option to do this kind of matching with others!
These copycat apps follow Tinder’s design almost exactly, but with a twist or two to make them unique.
It was actually mind-boggling how many of the different apps I downloaded had a design similar to Tinder’s, complete with swipe right/swipe left directions.
These apps put their own spin on the idea of mobile dating, as both focus on the importance of an eventual in-person connection rather than online messaging.
These apps may not be super popular yet, but apps like these (ones that use mobile platforms to facilitate in-person connections) could easily end up being the future of online dating.
As well, you can access people’s profiles without matching with them, and leave a “like” on the profiles that spark your interest.
I did find that the interface for this app was more confusing than most of the others on this list – sometimes I would end up on a page without being entirely sure how I got there.
These features provide you with a lot of different options when choosing how to interact with others online, but the several different kinds of notifications can also become confusing! In addition to this, Ok Cupid has a much more streamlined design than Plenty of Fish, while still offering more options for connecting with potential matches than Tinder does.
