3. NAIJing Dating App
NAIJing is a dating app similar to Friendite as it is equally a home-grown dating app. it was launched in the last month of 2014. NAIJing has all the usual stuff common with most dating apps such as a chat and messaging system and ability to “like”.
After 3 years, the app still has some rough edges to smoothen. The app is only available for mobile as there is no desktop version. The app has also been discovered to have bugs that make it susceptible to hacking.
Despite the setbacks, the app has done well as it has very well surpassed its competition, Friendite with about 100,000 to 500,000 installations. With more than 3,000 reviews on Playstore, the app is gaining popularity at a quick pace. This app just like Friendite is only available for Android OS alone.
4. Badoo Dating App
Badoo is a dating app and social discovery app. You can access it from iOS devices, Android devices, and from desktop browsers. It has over 345 million people worldwide. There are people using it in every country, according to Badoo, and the average person already has 40 friends on it.
You can find people based on age, location, and gender. Badoo offers Nigerians the chance to chat with fellow Nigerians nearby and rate their photos.
The app is available for download on Android and Apple devices.
Zoosk, an online dating site and mobile app that promises ease of use and practicality in the singles world.
Zoosk’s popularity in Nigeria pales to Tinder and Badoo in terms of popularity in Nigeria but is nevertheless an amazing app as it has more than 26million international users as of 2014.
Zoosk uses a proprietary “Behavioral Matchmaking” engine and algorithm that delivers users better matches through their actions. It takes into account who you’re liking, messaging, and winking at, so you don’t have to fill out a long string of questions to determine who you might like and who might like you back.
Plus, this means more suggestions for matches that you’re actually into, even if you’d have no idea how to answer what your “type” is in a questionnaire.
There is also this “photo verification service” feature for users to upload pictures that meet the standard of the platform.
Bumble is basically Tinder for women… and on a timer. Bumble requires women to message first and if the guy doesn’t message back within 24 hours, he loses the potential match. Because that’s the one thing my love life was really missing… arbitrary time limits.
The timer is designed to encourage contact, and some people really do appreciate that feature. But if you’re someone who procrastinates, Bumble may not be for you. Also because women must message first, Bumble tends to weed out the slightly more insecure males. However the rate of overly confident males tends to be higher than I’ve seen on other apps. Bumble also has a BFF feature, but that’s really not the focus of a dating app gallery, so I’ll save it for another time.
