Smartphones have made the use of these services even easier and there are hundreds of apps available that offer these services. Following are some most popular dating apps and services.
Any list of dating apps and services is not complete without mentioning Tinder as this particular service has millions of worldwide users. The main reason why Tinder is so much popular it is easy to use interface and structure. All you have to do is create your profile on Tinder and set your preferences so the service can recommend some fellow daters to you.

Hinge is a relatively newer app and service in the market but last year it successfully got more than 60,000 users that are pretty impressive. According to some people Hinge is similar to Tinder because both services and apps work in a similar way but Hinge has brought it to the next level because it not only matches the preferences of different people but also tries to connect people who are in the same circle like friends or friends of friends. Unlike Tinder, Hinge is more suitable for people who are looking for refined dating. Hinge is available for iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone.
Grindr focuses on a more specific community rather than entire population and this app is exclusively built for people who are looking for homosexual relationships. Grindr got instant popularity few years back because there was no competition and it was the first app and services made for gays. You can get the idea of its popularity by knowing there are more than 1.5 million users of Grindr in USA alone. Although there are many other such apps and services available but Grindr is on the top with a huge margin. You can get it on iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.
Double as the name suggests comes with an amazing feature that allows users to go on a double date with their friends. Other than this feature, it is pretty much alike the other apps and services as it uses same swiping feature for showing your interest in other people. Obviously it sounds fun but the service is just launched in UK and there are no data to conclude how much it is popular. It is currently available for iOS devices and support iPhone, iPad and iPod. The company is working on its apps for other mobile platforms including Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone and hopefully they will release them in upcoming months.
