Top 8 Dating Apps Apple Watch

Dating apps are the big thing these days, no matter the platform you happen to be using. They seem to range from those designed to help you meet new people, to those that are specifically made to help you hook up with single people for no-strings fun. And the market is so saturated these days that many of these apps boast some kind of defining feature, so as to set them apart from the pack. The swipe left and right thing is something pioneered by Tinder but has been taken up by many of the competition apps since, and there is also the radar system to allow you to locate single people that are online wherever you are. And while a great deal of the time spent on dating apps is interacting with others, getting to know one another and exchanging details, much of the time is spent maintaining and checking your profile, which kind of makes dating apps ideal for the Apple Watch and its at a glance system. With the release of Apple’s new device, many of the leading players in the dating site/app game such as Tinder, Match and OKCupid (all owned by the same company) were quick to jump in and update their apps accordingly. But there are some newcomers to the game, as seen below in our list of favorites!

8. The Inner Circle (Free)

Let’s start off with one of those dating apps that has something slightly different going for it, so as to set it apart from the slew of Tinder copies that have sprung up in the wake of the latter’s success. The Inner Circle basically runs with a single premise and runs with it well, that being, as the name probably suggests, one of exclusivity! The app is very, very strict about its screening policy, meaning that you can’t join unless you go through the process but the “quality” of people that you can meet on the other side is a lot more agreeable, or so we’re told. Long story short, they want rich and pretty people to fill up their database of users, so that if you do get onto the site then you will have more chance finding a special person rather than having to fend off an army of randoms. – Download from iTunes

7. 3nder (Free)

3nder is actually one of the more exciting options to come out of the development of the Apple Watch, at least when it comes to dating apps. I love the interface of this one, with its basic use of orange and black and white, but the concept is even better. Basically, it gets rid of photos and selfies and all that stuff and focuses on the surprise element of dating. So, all you have to go on is the personality of someone that comes through with their profile text and their description of themselves, rather than flattering photos that might have been taken 10 years ago! It’s also very much a proximity based thing, looking to help you find people in your area. – Download from iTunes

6. OKCupid (Free)

OKCupid has been around for quite a while, but that hasn’t stopped them from pulling out all the stops when it comes to updating their app to reflect current market trends – or what single people want these days! Their recent Quickmatch feature is a welcome addition, and is similar to Tinder in that it allows you to scroll through profile photos and quickly select someone of interest from your general area. – Download from iTunes

5. PlanetRomeo (Free)

For once, gay hook up app Grindr seems to be somewhat behind the curve when it comes to appealing to a generation of gay people looking for love and fun. No, the first same sex dating app to hit the Apple Watch is Jack’d, which is actually quite similar and is really based around the idea of location and findin people into you in your general vicinity. Much more balanced an app is the UK-based alternative PlanetRomeo, who also recently updated their app for the  Apple Watch. It is designed to help guys meet guys, and lets you browse user profiles, read messages and save favorite people directly from your wrist! – Download from iTunes

4. Match (Free)

The Match.com app is another one that has been around for a while, but these new Apple Watch updates now allow you to access many of the features directly from your wrist! The cool thing is that you can stay logged in and online on your profile, even if your Apple Watch is locked. That way, other users will see you as online rather than offline and you’re more likely to get contact by potential dates! – Download from iTunes

3. Clover (Free)

One app that Apple recently featured on the App Store, and another that has recently been updated for Apple Watch support is Clover, which seems to be trying to remove all the bad things about online dating. Indeed, their tagline is “swipe less, date more”, which seems to suggest that it is looking to put the practical process of getting out and meeting people ahead of the game-like idea of swiping between profiles that you like or don’t like. This can only be a good thing, right? The app also goes out and find someone who wants to meet you, and then you simply have to agree or disagree to a date. – Download from iTunes

2. Coffee Meets Bagel (Free)

Coffee Meets Bagel has been around for a while now, and I guess is becoming more and more popular among younger users. It seems these days that each dating site or app has a different kind of person attached to it, so that they become associated with this group of people. Grindr is for gay guys looking for fun, Match is for older folk and Tinder is for people looking to hook up, etc. Coffee Meets Bagel has taken some time to work out its niche, but it seems to have slowly attracted a younger and more fresh faced audience. It is also greatly appreciated by those who have a busy schedule, because it kind of removes the whole process of searching through and messaging potential matches. Instead, each day the app will calculate and the send you a potential match, and you have 24 hours to like or pass. – Download from iTunes

1. Tinder (Free)

Then we have Tinder, which has become something of an institution these days – so much so that Channel 4 in the UK recently ran a special series titled The Secret Life of Tinder, in which it detailed the various positive and negative aspects of dating apps, and indeed didn’t really mention another app by name apart from this one. Tinder’s swipe left and right to accept or decline system is something that people have really taken to, and embraces the mentality of the current generation of speed dating and social media profiles. The only problem I guess with Tinder is that the app is so popular these days and there are no screening processes, that you are likely to get bombarded by randoms before you can even find that special someone. – Download from iTunes
