The Development of Mobile Dating Apps in the UK

Although mobile dating apps are a relatively new phenomenon both in the UK and abroad, they’re use has practically exploded in the last year. Tinder is, by far, one of the most well-known dating apps out there however do not let this fool you into thinking that your options are limited. The "swipe left, swipe right" culture of Tinder is on the tip of the iceberg when it comes to mobile dating in the UK:

  • There are often two kinds of mobile dating options for singles: mobile dating websites and apps. Mobile dating sites are often just that: dating sites optimised for mobile devices.
  • Most of the big players like those in our online dating agencies or flirt and chat sites categories will also provide a mobile version of their sites which are often just like a condensed version.
  • The dating app, however, can only be downloaded onto your mobile device and used as such. Again, many big players such as Zoosk have brought out not only an optimised mobile version of their sites, but an app as well.

These apps often contain and perform all of the features and functions of the dating site in question.

Further Development of Dating Apps

Female safety is often a big concern in online dating, and many mobile apps have seen the issue. As a result, a number of providers have taken the time to design apps that focus on ensuring that women have a pleasant experience and stay safe. This often brings about apps that make it only possible for female users to initiate contact.

Recently, there has also been a trend of "slowing down". Tinder, with its swipe-fanatics, has realised that the game is turning into little more than an ego-boost with few people actually bothering to talk with one another. Certain apps have come around to the idea of limiting the number of matches that you can receive, some even limiting users to one match per day!

Mobile dating in general is not necessarily a category on its own. Rather, it covers a wide spectrum of needs and desires that singles have. If you are looking for something specific, then do not be afraid to take a closer look at the other dating site providers we have reviewed:

  • Flirt and chat sites, the original type of dating site, are still quite popular and are often a great way to meet up with people for dates, whether serious or casual.
  • Online dating agencies focus a lot more on those who want a serious relationship. Unlike dating personals, matchmaking sites use special algorithms to match you up with people who are deemed compatible.
  • Our sex contact site reviews are for those who are looking for one thing. Here, we have a breakdown of the facts, figures and effectiveness of the best sex dating sites in the UK. We think you will be pleasantly surprised.
