4 best dating apps

Are you looking for love? Finding romance in the digital age is easier than ever thanks to a number of great dating apps. But which one is the one for you? Here’s the lowdown on some of the best dating apps and what you can expect from them.


Tinder is one of the most popular dating apps out there. It uses your phone’s GPS to match you with nearby people based on the preferences you’ve set, then you just swipe right if you’re interested and left if you’re not. The app is easy to set up and free to use, but there are paid for add-ons like Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold, that offer a bunch of extras to increase your chances of finding a date.

If you’re planning to use Tinder on holiday within the EU, make sure you get yourself a cheap roaming data sim from SMARTY. Remember, we also offer money back on unused data, so you won’t have wasted anything if you don’t find ‘the one’!


On Bumble, women are asked to make the first move in an attempt to shake up outdated gender norms. The aim is to start relationships with equality and respect. The app is completely free to use but, much like other dating apps, offers a couple of premium features for a small price.


If you’re serious about settling down, Hinge aims to help you meet someone and get off dating apps for good. Instead of being matched on just looks and location, the app finds people who are more likely to share your interests and passions. Hinge is free to use, although does offer a premium subscription costing £10.49 – which may seem a bit much but hey, who can put a price on love?


A veteran of online dating, OkCupid used to be desktop only experience. Their one-of-a-kind algorithm is now being put to use in an app. Boasting over 91 million connections made every year, this old-school dating service is free to use, but offers a low-cost service for extra features.

Whether you end up meeting your future spouse or just making new friends, why not share the love with a free month of SMARTY. Or, if you prefer to keep work and play separate, how about getting a new SMARTY SIM dedicated to your dating dramas.
