What the Tech: Romance Apps

Local News

Whether you’re looking for a date, dating, engaged, married or divorced, everybody will be interested in apps for romance. I’m looking at some of the more popular (and obscure) romance apps available.

We don’t even have to mention some of the top dating apps in app stores. Tinder, OK Cupid and Match, swipe right or left and you may just find the right connection. There’s also Badoo which has a huge following. Like others, Badoo connects to your Facebook profile and will find mutual friends.

Another dating app, “Hater” goes about connecting singles in a different way. “Hater” finds matches with similar ‘hates’. Thousands of questions. After you answered some, the app scans a database of users near you who also hate the things you hate.

If you meet a potential sweetie in person, it takes some time to get to know them, even after a first date. That’s why the app “Stud or Dud” comes into play. You enter their name into the Stud or Dud app, and it scans a huge database to locate someone with that name near you. Then you can learn more about them. Have they been arrested? Filed for bankruptcy. It’s perfectly legal since it’s public information.

And for married couples, the best app of them all might be “Urban Sitter” to find someone last minute to watch the kids. The sitters are screened and you’ll see any Facebook friends who’ve hired them before.

Next Valentines Day it will be interesting to see how popular dating apps are doing after Facebook launches its own dating feature, that will match mutual friends, of friends, of friends. And from what I understand, it will be free.
