Singles can learn a lot from studying dating app download statistics and active user numbers. These stats can act as a window into the online dating scene and let singles know where the hottest swiping action is.

The only problem is that not every online dating company is forthright about the numbers in its database. So our dating experts had to get a little creative and extrapolate from web analytics to determine approximately how many downloads a dating app has seen since its launch.

We have ranked the most popular dating apps based on total downloads and provided additional online dating statistics to help singles get the lay of the land.

1. Tinder: 530 million downloads

The app statistics for Tinder are truly impressive as it’s widely considered the best in the business. Since its launch in 2012, Tinder has been downloaded over 530 million times and created 75 billion matches. That’s billion with B.

Tinder’s popularity stems from its ingenious swiping system. This online dating app was the first to require two users to like each other’s profile before they could communicate, and its photo-based swiping has become the gold standard for many mobile apps.

The Tinder app has published basic statistics about its users and match rate.

A Tinder user can swipe, match, and chat for free. However, some highly driven singles have found it’s worth upgrading to Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold to enjoy more premium features and get a leg up on the competition.

2. Badoo: 493 million downloads

Badoo has been breaking records in the online dating industry for over a decade now. In 2016, Badoo became the first dating app to surpass 100 million downloads on Google Play.

Today, the online dating app boasts having 493 million users in 190 countries. The global app is particularly popular in Brazil, Mexico, France, Italy, and Spain.

In 2012, Badoo made a splash in the American dating scene.

A Russian entrepreneur named Andrey Andreev launched Badoo in Moscow in 2006, and it has grown into a global phenomenon. The dating app sees over 12 billion swipes and adds about 400,000 new members to its user base every day.

3. Adult Friend Finder: 103 million downloads

Adult Friend Finder launched in 1996 as one of the hottest places for sexy adults on the web. And it has only grown larger and more popular with time. Today, the AFF community boasts having over 103 million registered users around the world.

AFF members come from all walks of life, but they share a common interest in hooking up with an attractive stranger.

Yes, just like AFF members, we’re playing it a little fast and loose with this one. Adult Friend Finder is a casual dating website that’s available with no downloading necessary. But it deserves a top ranking on any list of popular dating platforms because it has surpassed the impressive milestone of 100 million members.

4. Bumble: 100 million downloads

Bumble caused a buzz in 2014 as the first dating app to put single women first. The app requires female users to make the first move (i.e. send the first message) once they’ve matched with a male user. This woman-led company has endorsed women-led online dating, and it has been a roaring success.

The Bumble team announced that the app had celebrated its 100 millionth download in 2020. This was a major achievement for Bumble, and it further legitimized the online dating industry in the global market. Fewer than 400 apps have reached over 100 million downloads on Google Play.

5. Happn: 95 million downloads

Happn is a popular dating app for busy professionals in big cities or suburbs. The app uses the location data on a mobile device to identify where local singles cross paths in their daily lives.

Since February 2014, Happn has been downloaded over 95 million times. It is particularly popular in major cities in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

Happn ranks as one of the most popular online dating apps by a long shot if you go by dating app download statistics. However, it’s important to look at current online activity to see how many people who install the app actually stick around to create matches and chat. The Happn dating app sees about 10 million daily active users.

6. Plenty of Fish: 50 million downloads

Plenty of Fish drew inspiration from the old saying “there are plenty of fish in the sea” when it launched in Canada in 2003. The online dating site and app have promoted completely free chatting tools and attracted a large and diverse membership base as a result.

A Grindr app user must identify as a single man seeking men, and he must upload a profile picture to show he’s the real deal. However, Grindr allows its members to crop out or obscure their faces so their real identity can remain anonymous while swiping on the gay dating app.

Sex-driven men should note that Grindr has rules against sexually explicit or nude photos being shared on the grid, but it allows such photos to be exchanged between Grindr Xtra members in private chats.

10. Hinge: 23 million downloads

Hinge has been called the relationship app and the anti-swiping dating app. I call it the place where I met my husband. Hinge is a free dating app where quality matters and users are in complete control of their matches, so it’s no wonder it’s become so popular.

Since it launched in 2012, Hinge has helped a ton of people meet their match (I’m one of them!) and currently about 5.5 million members explore the local dating scene on this mobile app.

New Hinge members must add multiple photos and answer fun prompts to complete their dating profile.

Hinge operates under the motto “designed to be deleted” because its goal is to help new users meet people, go on dates, and get in a serious relationship ASAP. The Hinge team isn’t trying to keep an app user in an endless swiping vortex, so it solicits first date feedback and offers interest-based matching to strengthen online connections.

11. Coffee Meets Bagel: 21 million downloads

14. Match: 10 million downloads

The HER events calendar has been understandably quiet during the COVID-19 pandemic, but we expect things will pick back up in the coming years.

16. eharmony: 6 million downloads

The eharmony dating website has been well-established for over 20 years now, However, the online dating app has been on the scene for less than 10 years and has struggled to gain traction among millennials.

The eharmony app has staked a claim as a more mature alternative to mobile apps like Tinder. It stands out from other apps in the swiping scene because of its in-depth personality test, compatibility ratings, and paid subscription model.

Over the years, eharmony has built its reputation as a love-driven matchmaker for serious daters. Its smart algorithm has connected more than 2 million couples in the U.S., so it may be worth seeking quality over quantity here.

Where Can I Download Dating Apps?

That depends on what kind of mobile device you’re using to download a dating app. Android users can download dating apps at the Google Play Store, while iOS and iPhone users can get dating apps from the App Store. The most popular dating apps will typically be available in both these places, but they may also have a direct download option or mobile-friendly web browser access to give active users more options.

Do I Have to Pay to Download the Tinder App?

No, it is completely free to download the Tinder app and use it to meet new people. A person can set up a Tinder profile, swipe on local profiles, and send messages to their matches. All for free.

Tinder is a 100% free dating app where millions of single people mix and mingle every day.

Screenshot of Tinder
Tinder does not charge a cover for entry to its fast-paced swiping scene.

A free Tinder account will never expire, and it provides everything a person needs to explore the local dating pool. However, some users choose to upgrade to Tinder Plus or Tinder Gold because they want to be able to send unlimited likes and swipe in another state or country.

The Tinder Passport feature allows members to expand their potential match list beyond a 100-mile radius, and it is useful for singles who travel often for work or pleasure.

Tinder has over 6.6 million paid subscribers worldwide, and stats on annual Tinder revenue rank it the highest grossing non-gaming app ever.

What Do Tinder Statistics & Analytics Say About the App?

The Tinder app has some undeniably impressive usage statistics. The online dating app is available in 40 languages and 190 countries. It has been downloaded 530 million times and created over 75 billion matches since 2012.

If you’re going by sheer audience size and match rate, Tinder is easily the most successful app for singles seeking local romance.

Of course, not every Tinder match adds up to a Tinder date, and that’s why the online dating app has kept track of real-world stats as well as user base numbers. Every week, Tinder users go on over 1.5 million dates. That may sound like a lot, but when you consider that the Tinder app records over 1 billion swipes per day — Tinder doesn’t have such a great swipe-to-date record.

Which Social Apps Work Best for Senior Singles?

As singles reach a certain age, it becomes increasingly difficult for them to meet new people and form new friendships and relationships in their everyday routine. That’s why they go online — to go beyond their own social circle and find like-minded singles in their age group.

Apps like Tinder tend to cater to a younger crowd of 20-somethings and 30-somethings, but senior dating sites and apps provide a more mature dating space where people in their 50s, 60s, 70s, and up can thrive.

OurTime is a good example of a social dating app that brings seniors plenty of promising date options.

★★★★★ 4.6/5.0

Our expert ratings are based on factors such as popularity, usability, value, and success rate of each site.

Adult Friend Finder supplies tons of date options in a sexually charged atmosphere, so it’s no wonder so many horny men and women have created a personal ad and joined the fun.

Follow the Data to Find Your Ideal Match on an App

Online dating is basically a numbers game. Singles have more swiping and chat options on a popular dating site or app, and that gives them more opportunities to make a romantic connection that can lead to a first date, a serious relationship, or even marriage.

By compiling dating app download statistics, our experts endeavored to outline the best of the business and show how the most popular dating apps stack up against each other. That way, online daters know where to go to meet a ton of new people and give themselves the best chance of finding what they’re looking for in the modern dating scene.

The dating sites and apps on this list have successfully brought millions of singles together, and they can open up a world of romantic possibilities to app users once they click download. Best of luck!
