The best dating apps can help you find new friends or start a more serious relationship

The best dating apps right now

1. Tinder (Android; iOS)
best dating apps: tinder

                    

You create a simple profile with a handful of photos and a few sentences about yourself, then throw yourself at the Internet's mercy. 

Download Tinder: Android, iOS

The app displays singles in your area. If you like one, swipe the photo to the right; otherwise, swipe to the left. If you both swipe right, you can send messages and set something up.

2. Bumble (Android; iOS)
best dating apps: bumble


Bumble aims to let line up dates or make new friends in your area.With this app, the queen bee (any female) must make the first move after two people mutually connect and are part of each other’s hive. There’s not much time to waste — there’s just 24 hours to make some kind of contact or the connection disappears forever. For same-sex connections or friendships, either person has to make a move within 24 hours before that connection is gone, though you can get a 24-hour extension. 

Just looking to widen your circle of friends, as opposed to  relationship? Bumble has a BFF feature for people who are not looking for dates and a separate section for making business contacts. The Bumble Boost upgrade, which ranges from $2.99 to $8.99, makes it easier and faster to meet or date people. 

Download Bumble: Android, iOS

3. OkCupid (Android; iOS)
best dating apps: OK Cupid


OkCupid features a massive userbase and straightforward dating tools. But rather than rest on its laurels, OKC keeps refining and adding on features to its top dating app, such as a "Flavors" system that allows users to quickly view evocative flavors of potential matches, such as Kinky Nerds, Beard Lovers, World Travelers, etc. 

All this is in addition to OkCupid's messaging tools, personality quizzes, Instagram integration and other old favorites. A premium subscription adds other features, such as refined search tools and the ability to see users who have liked you. 

Download OKCupid: Android, iOS

4. Match.com (Android; iOS)
best dating apps: match.com


Match.com offers its users a freemium dating experience on Android and iOS. Free users can set up online profiles, upload a few pictures of themselves and then engage in some online flirting with "winks", and have new matches delivered to them daily. More comprehensive features, such as the ability to see who has checked out your profile and liked your pictures, can be unlocked by a Match.com subscription. 

Match has continued to add on to its features, such as a Tinder-like Mixer, Android Wear and Apple Watch integration, and the addition of voice and video snippets to your profile. This April, with people stuck at home, Match launched Vibe Check, which lets you enjoy video chats with your matches.

Like Tinder, Match also added a safety feature that lets you alert friends if you're on a date and feel unsafe. Another new feature even lets you set your political views, so you can better find a person whose outlooks line up with yours (or don't, if you believe that opposites attract).

Download Match.com: Android, iOS

5. Facebook (Android, iOS)
best dating apps: Facebook dating


Facebook Dating focuses on helping you find long-term relationships, not hook-ups. You access the Dating section from within Facebook's mobile app, setting up a Dating profile that's separate from your regular Facebook profile. From there, Facebook finds matches for you based on your preferences, interests and activities on the social networking site. 

Facebook won't suggest matches among people you already know on Facebook, unless you use the service's Secret Crush feature in which you can select up to nine Facebook friends or Instagram followers you have an interest in. If they also express an interest in you via Secret Crush, Facebook will match you up. 

You're currently able to add Instagram posts to your Facebook Dating profile as well as share Facebook and Instagram stories. Like other dating services, Facebook Dating is adding the ability to make video calls to your would-be sweetie, using the company's Messenger app.

Download Facebook: Android, iOS

6. Grindr (Android; iOS)
best dating apps: grindr


Grindr allows gay and bisexual men to meet up with like-minded men nearby. Profile creation is a fairly minimal experience, focusing on a profile pic, user name, and a few simple questions, and choosing a "Tribe" that describes your type, and then you're up finding other users and chatting them up in minutes. 

Grindr is free to use and advertisement-supported, but the premium version, Grindr Xtra, offers ad-free browsing in addition to other features like adding multiple Tribes and advanced search filters. One notable downside? Unlike other dating apps, push notifications for messages require Grindr Xtra. 

Download Grindr: Android, iOS

7. eharmony (Android; iOS)
best dating apps: eharmony


eharmony is a long-time player in the online dating game, and the first service to push an algorithmic system to try to make the best possible dating matches for its members. Once you create an account, users go through a "Relationship Questionnaire" to create a personality profile that helps match you with other users that eharmony thinks you'll click with. Every day, the app will provide you with a selection of matches and your areas of compatibility; you'll have the option to connect if the interest is mutual. 

Download eharmony: Android, iOS

8. Coffee Meets Bagel (Android; iOS)
best dating apps: Coffee Meets Bagel



Coffee Meets Bagel takes the opposite approach to many of the best dating apps, trying to focus on quality rather than quantity. Every day at noon, the app will send men a small selection of potential matches based on their profile and preferences, and women are then sent a number of matches who've shown interest in them, leaving the ladies the option of reciprocating the like. If the attraction is mutual, then the app will set you up with a 7-day chat window and icebreaker. 

A redesign of the dating app puts a greater emphasis on user profiles, giving you the ability to comment on profiles and photos in hopes of fostering more connections between Coffee Meets Bagel users.

Download Coffee Meets Bagel: Android, iOS

9. Her (Android; iOS)
best dating apps: Her


Her is a dating and social network app designed with lesbian, bisexual and queer users in mind. You sign up with Facebook or Instagram accounts, and then view a stream of activity from other verified Her users both in your area and globally. You can Like photos of other users, and if the interest is mutual, the app will link you up to chat.

Download Her: Android, iOS

iphone 11 Pro full review

iPhone 11 Pro full review iPhone 11 Pro Welcome to the review of the iPhone 11 Pro. Right off the bat I don't really agree with the names I don't think there's enough pro about these phones that could have been to warrant putting pro in the name. But the names don't really matter. What does matter is these are the highest end phones that Apple makes right now in 2019. The truth is these are mostly pretty familiar phones to last year, which was also pretty familiar to the year before, but you already knew that what's new is Apple is really focused on four major things for this new iPhone. So the design, barely the new display, slight upgrade the battery life major These new cameras so the design does grow on you not gonna lie. We saw those renders in the models and nobody thought they're pretty including me. But as usual, getting them in your hand and actually looking at them in person is a different thing. And it doesn't look horrible. I

Acer Nitro 5 review

Acer Nitro 5 laptop review  Acer nitro 5 This is the Acer natural five. It's a serious entry level 15 inch gaming laptop. And it's targeted towards gamers who are looking for the best specs without breaking the bank. In fact, it's cheaper than the famous Helios 300 lineup.  And it competes directly with MSI is Bravo 15 and del g 515 s E. Now, I'm typically not really excited about budget gaming Lobos or haven't been excited lately because I took a look at the MSI Bravo 15 and the del g 515. Se, those laptops had some serious issues and I just couldn't recommend them entirely. But there are a lot of great things to like about this laptop, and that's because it's got an RT x 2016.  And it only costs about $1,000 which is actually a really good deal in my opinion. The build quality is also really good for the price of surprised by a lot of factors. But given that it still has a lot of great specs, there are certain things that you need to
