Dating App Industry


Market Overview

As we have mentioned, dating apps are rather popular in the contemporary society, and it adverts to all age groups, from young-adults to golden-agers.

According to Business of Apps, mobile online dating beats desktop by 60% vs 40%. Tinder is now generating up to 800 million swipes and 10 million matches per day. And if you are concerned about the profit, 24% of users pay to get additional functions in dating applications.

Application’s Main Features

There are hundreds if not thousands of dating apps on the market, and what makes them stick in user’s minds is an original concept. It is either swiping left or right, creating matches considering your dislikes, being created for a particular group of people or showing how many chats your match has going at the same tim etc.

Anyway, despite all the fun shenanigans there are still core features necessary for the dating app, and here is our list of them:

  • Personal profile
  • Matching algorithm
  • Push notifications
  • Privet chat
  • Social integration
  • Freemium features

We would also highly recommend adding location services and make your application multilingual if you’re planning to launch it globally.

How to Create a Dating App

Of course the heart of your app is its original concept, its blue ribbon among all the other products on the market, but the bones that keep it going are the following:

  • Customized profile registration
  • Payment service
  • Social media integration
  • Notifications
  • Design

A note from Thunderrise:

Development of this app will take about 500 hours, and a team of Android developer, iOS developer, web developer and designer will be able to finish it in about two to three months.

Of course, we cannot name the final price of your exact product right of the bat, since it depends largely on the desired features and your developer’s hourly rate.

If you want to get an estimation and develop your own dating app, make sure to contact us.
