In recent times, dating apps are gaining popularity, with Tinder being one of the most popular ones! One quick search on Android play store or iOS app store using keywords such as “best dating app Singapore” or “dating app for singles” will show you a variety of dating apps to select from. It’s easy to use a dating app and here are some things you need to know about dating apps.


What are some common features of a dating app? 


Even though not all features will be found in every single dating app out there, all dating apps come with some common features and these are:


  • A user profile helps the user to get introduced to the potential matches. The profile helps to showcase the personality of the user and create the best impression.
  • Messaging/chat feature helps to communicate with the potential match. The user can also upload and send images, audio or video files
  • Geolocation helps the users to pick their preferred location. Dating apps also offer the selection of the locations manually by the user.


Some dating apps will allow users to add unlimited friends in the user account. Also, dating apps can offer recommended matches/instant matches to the user. Not only that, but users can also block any user they want. Some dating apps also offer membership plans, which will offer extra benefits and features that are unavailable to the free user.



How to find the best dating app? 


Each dating app has advantages and disadvantages, and specific features to offer to the user. However, it isn’t difficult to find the best app, by following the steps below:

  • Firstly, search for a few good dating apps in the app store or play store.
  • Check the rating and the reviews of the dating app provided by the other users on the app page.
  • Check the features offered by the dating app and scroll through the screenshot or video of the app in the app’s page to get a better insight into it.
  • You can also check for reviews on the app outside the play/app store by using Google search.
  • Compare the selected apps and choose the best one offering the features you are looking for.
  •  Download and install the dating app in your device.


It’s not always that you will land the best app right away. Sometimes you will need to download the app to check if you can use it with ease. If not, there’s always another one to use!



To use a dating app: 


  • First of all, you will need to sign up on the dating app that you want to use.
  • Then you will need to create your profile and select your preferences.
