Coffee Meets Bagel (Android, i OS) takes the opposite approach to many dating apps, trying to focus on quality rather than quantity.
Every day at noon, the app will send men a small selection of potential matches based on their profile and preferences, and women are then sent a number of matches who've shown interest in them, leaving the ladies the option of reciprocating the like.
Created as a counterpoint to other prominent gay dating apps — and to put a greater emphasis on safety — Chappy (Android, i OS) is backed by Bumble and part of the bigger Badoo network of dating services.
Chappy aims to provide a safe, fun place for gay men to date, with features like account verification, mandatory confirmed profile pics, and photo moderation.
Profile creation is a fairly minimal experience, focusing on a profile pic, user name, and a few simple questions, and choosing a "Tribe" that describes your type, and then you're up finding other users and chatting them up in minutes.
You sign up with Facebook or Instagram accounts, and then view a stream of activity from other verified Her users both in your area and globally.More comprehensive features such as the ability to see who has checked out your profile and liked your pictures can be unlocked by a subscription.Match has continued to add on to its features, such as a Tinder-like Mixer, Android Wear and Apple Watch integration, as well as the addition of voice and video snippets to your profile.Just looking to widen your circle of friends, as opposed to relationship?Bumble has a BFF feature for people who are not looking for dates and a separate section for making business contacts.
