I went and googled some top dating apps that I have never tried out and I thought I would test out each one for one week. Here are the ones I found to be most interesting to me. As I test out each one I will then write my full review on them as I go. Pros & Cons and so forth.
From the minds of previous Tinder executives comes Bumble, a newly released iOS app that lets women run the show. Like Tinder, Bumble lets users swipe right to approve and left to decline. If two users mutually swipe each other right, they are allowed to chat, but here’s the kicker: Only women can initiate the conversation, and they only have 24 hours to do so before the connection disappears.
Tastebuds puts a spin on your run-of-the-mill online dating app by making the experience about music. You’re matched up with people in your location based on a shared interest in the same kind of music! The app allows you to add your favorite bands or scan your iPhone music library to begin and go from there. According to the site, a lot of people use it to make new friends and concert buddies as well as to find dates.
Score works to pair up users with real emotional compatibility based on matching scores. The scores given depend on answers to “quirky” questions, such as the definition of sexy. If you’re looking for something unconventional and a little wacky, try Score for yourself — it’s available on both iOS and Android.
This one claims to be “the app to discover the people you’ve crossed paths with, the people you like, [and] the people you’d like to find again.” How does Happn work? Every time you cross paths with someone in real life, their profile shows up on your timeline. When you’ve both liked each other, you have a Crush, which lets you begin a conversation. Bonus: It just integrated music to its platform to allow users to add songs onto their profiles and send songs to their Crushes!
Have you always wanted to be able to see your potential date IRL before actually going out? Say no more: Fliqpic is close enough, allowing you to live video chat potential love interests before deciding to pursue them any further. It’s pretty safe to assume that catfishing is minimal on this app — we’re all about that!
Dog-lovers, meet your potential soulmate on Tindog, the dating service for pet owners. On this platform, you’ll discover other canines and their owners in your area, and you can swipe right if you’re interested! (Sound like something you know?) Never walk your dog alone again; you might just find puppy love on this one.

- Coffee Meets Bagel
Coffee Meets Bagel uses Facebook to match you with a friend of a friend. It uses a game-like interface to make the experience fun, and it sounds a lot safer to date at least a friend of a friend than a total stranger, right? The site boasts that it’s “designed for singles who want to find something real with little or no effort.”
You may know the HowAboutWe dating app as the one that lets you find and put out date ideas in your area, but two features were added that make the process even easier: Speed Date allows you to browse photos and dates that you can skip over or double tap if you’re interested, and Date Map helps you search and find all those local date ideas on an interactive map!
