The A-Z of Dating Apps in 2015 – M to R

Online Dating News

All this week, I’ve been exploring the hundreds of dating apps available in a four part A-Z of Dating Apps in 2015.  You can read A to F here, and G to L here.

M is for My Mate Your Date

Brand new app, which launched last month in London with a huge free ‘house party’ at the Hoxton Hotel.  All summer the app is offering to sponsor your house parties, in a hope of boosting sign ups.  The premise is similar to a number of the others in A to Z – matchmaking based on Facebook friends of friends.

Match

The dating website giant also has an accompanying app for the website, making it easier for you to search for matches on the move.  There are also rumours of a series of new Match apps appearing in the near future.

Shorty

Mamba

Mamba began in Russia as Wamba.  It’s a network of around 25,000 dating sites, predominantly across Eastern Europe.  The network has an accompanying app.

Mixeo

This is a speed dating app used to record your matches at the end of live events.

My Single Friend

To mark their 10 year anniversary last year, MSF launched a brand new app, which offered friends more opportunity to get involved in their single friends’ love lives.  Whilst I haven’t yet trialled the app, apparently non-singles can go on and act as matchmakers for their friends (instead of simply writing their dating profiles).

MiuMeet

Dating site boasting 5 million users (that I’ve never heard of …)  Looks to be run by a German company called inSparkx.  The app is an addition to their dating site.

MELD

MELD is a dating app in the US for single, black professionals.  It has a rather odd DNA-like logo.

N is for Noonswoon

Angel-funded Asian dating app.

O is for OKCupid

Huge dating site in the States, with a large following in other countries.  The log in process on both the website and the app requires you to answer random questions created by users.  The answers can either be made public or kept private, and help you assess the compatibility of other users.

Oasis

One of the first dating apps.  A dating site with an accompanying app, Oasis had a swipe right functionality long before Tinder coined the phrase.

‘The world’s first real time, indoor, social meet up app.’  Use the app to invite potential matches to parties or bars.  According to the front page, Megan Fox is a member.  I have a feeling that’s probably not the case 😉

POF

Plenty of Fish is the world’s largest free dating site, and its accompanying app is modern and easy to use.  Unfortunately it can’t vouch for the calibre of men you meet.  ‘The TK Maxx of dating’ was a phrase I once heard someone use!  Perhaps suggesting you have to dive through a lot of rubbish to find a good one 🙂

Pure

Another app claiming to be the ‘Uber’ of dates.  Seems to be a tool for on-call sex.

Q is for Queek’d Lite

Maybe this is just my dirty mind acting up again, but I have to say I’m not convinced by the verb Queek!  Having said that, the app is a bit different to others.  An ‘online dating’ hub – it’s designed as a dating tool, linking you to sites, dating advice, first date ideas and blog posts.

Quiver

A matchmaking game where your friends do the matching for you.

R is for RevealR

The world ‘first dating app based on the power of your voice’.  Maybe, but since then Fuzzy Banter and Voice Candy have also appeared.  Another 2014 reaction to Tinder superficiality.

Screen Shot 2015-05-17 at 01.19.50RSVP

Australia’s biggest dating site has an accompanying app.

Rendeevoo

London-based app where you pick a bar and a time, then find a date.  There are drinks offers and even the option to split the bill in advance on the app.

    That is a really useful list Charly, thanks for getting all these providers under one roof!

    One kind remark though: you misspelled our name… It’s rendeevoo, not rendevoo. Most likely you can’t change it now, but I thought of letting you know either way 🙂

    Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. Agreed! Nice to see so many great ideas in one place!
