App Annie only identified two major apps targeting lesbians: Les Park, which is strongest in China, and HER, which has consistently ranked at around the 100th most popular free app in the U. Apple App store since July, on some days topping Grindr's downloads.
Here are the apps gay men are using — in many different languages — to find Mr.
Of course, being the most popular doesn't always mean you're the best.
Most popular in: USA, UK, Mexico, Brazil, Bahrain, Australia, France, Indonesia This app markets itself as "the global network for meeting gay men." Features: Allows users to find men by proximity, see who has checked their profiles, buy and send gifts, and browse through profiles.
Features: Users are grouped into "tribes" and can browse profiles of users in their area.
You can apply filters to narrow your search and send photos in chat, as well as make a very short profile description.
Most popular in: South Korea, Turkey, Egypt, Nigeria Planet Romeo is geared towards "gay/bi male and transgender communities" looking to cruise and find hook ups or dates.
Features: All users (or "Romeos") can classify photos into five different categories: non-sexual; some skin; softcore; hardcore; and illegal.
You can now fill out your profile and start searching for matches while you’re on the bus, waiting in line at the post office, or having drinks at the bar. It doesn’t matter if you want to make new friends, find someone to hook up with, or get into a serious relationship — these 12 dating apps are perfect for anyone within the LGBT community.
We decided to see which hook up apps designed specifically for gay men are used most around the world, based on the number of downloads in different countries. The data is based on the number of downloaded apps through the i OS App Store and Google Play in August, a month chosen to keep the comparisons standardized.
(App Annie considers that the best way, in this particular case, to independently measure an app's market penetration.) We only list the top-rated app for August, but your favorite app may have been a close second or come out on, um, top in another month, since the competition is fierce.
Users can also pay to unlock premium in-app features.
The app is available in over fifteen languages including Korean, Russian, and Swedish.
