The Most Popular Free and Paid Dating Apps Used by Monthly Average Users in the United States

App Annie, an apps data and analytics company that tracks downloads and active users across mobile devices released a report on the average monthly users in the United States across Tinder, Bumble, Plenty of Fish, OkCupid, Grindr, Match, Meet Me, Coffee Meets Bagel, Hinge and Zoosk.

These figures represent mobile devices not users. For example, a single person can activate multiple mobile devices. This is much more difficult to do on an app like Bumble that verifies identities but not so much other apps that have more lenient policies around registrations unfortunately. Another thing to consider is that the numbers above also include spammers, bots and those not necessarily looking to chat, meet up or date.

Please note, highest user counts do not correlate with user satisfaction or recommended dating apps to use. Dating apps like Coffee Meets Bagel and Hinge are largely more popular in larger cities as opposed to smaller towns with fewer users.

Also, this does not factor desktop users for sites like Match.com, Zoosk, OkCupid, Plenty of Fish.

Just because an app has the most users doesn’t mean it is the best app out there let alone the best app for you. The best apps out there consider your age, location, demographics, what you seek and lifestyle.
