Tinder Vs Badoo: App Pros and Cons

In today’s society, searching for love seems to be constrained by online platforms, so it’s only fitting that we endeavor to compare the two most popular mobile dating apps: Tinder Vs Badoo.

Believe it or not, Badoo has been on the digital dating scene much longer than Tinder, launching six years prior to Tinder’s 2012 online introduction.

Described as a cross between a dating site and a social network, Badoo was revealed in February 2016 to be the most popular app in 21 countries (the majority of which from Latin America, Eastern Europe, and Asia), compared to Tinder’s 18.

Another example of why some people would choose Badoo over Tinder is that it caters for more devices and mobile software than Tinder, which could equate for it’s popularity outside of western countries.

Users can sign up for ‘freemium’ versions of both apps (they’re free but you can pay more for special features) through Facebook.

The major difference between the two apps is the functionality, Tinder is more appearance focused, rather than a social network, which Badoo presents itself as. Badoo offers users the chance to start chatting straight away, rather than judging other users based off initial attractiveness.
