Tinder is the superstar of all dating apps, as it is one of the most popular and most widely-used apps for love and friendship-seekers. It is almost like a game with the swipe-left, swipe-right interface, making the process of looking for someone special more fun and light-hearted. The only downside? You have to use your Facebook account to sign up.
Badoo is a dating app that is quite similar to Tinder, and just as popular, if not more so, here in Muscat. The fact that it doesn’t require social media account to sign-up sets it apart from its sister app, putting it atop many friendship seekers’ lists of dating apps.
Flurv is a popular dating app in Oman that lets you find out which other users are nearby. You can view tons of profile photos and share moments with potential dates with its Instagram-like feed. Flurv is another app that doesn’t require a social media account to sign-up, a big plus.
Tastebuds is a whole new way to meet people—according to his or her playlist. The app determines compatibility with other app users in your area according to musical taste. It hasn’t quite taken-off here in Oman, with few local users, but the app is perfect for frequent travellers who enjoy meeting new friends across the globe.
Bumble is pretty similar to Tinder with the catch being that women must initiate the conversation in the case of a successful match. The match alert stays active for 24-hours before it vanishes, so decisions must be made pretty quickly.
