Here are some reasons:


– The user interface is very easy to use. It actually has one core feature in that people can just swipe left or right depending if they like the person or not.
– New features being added on a regular basis. As of now, the app has a Matchmaker, List, and Moments feature which helps singles find their soulmate.
– Popular artists like Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry actually encourages people to try the app as it is easy to use and it is quite accurate as well. After they made such an announcement, a lot of people have tried the app much to their delight.

Let’s break it down a little bit further:
a) User Interface- it is important that your dating app has a clean user interface.
b) Core Features- Your application should have a unique core feature. Do not copy what Tinder has already done; implement something original that is easy to use. Remember, you want people to find their soulmate, right? So, implement features that can help them find the best person out there.
c) Promotion- You can kickstart the success of your application by hiring some influencers and celebrities to promote your app.

2. Monetization

Of course, you also need to earn some money from the app. Creating a dating app is actually a lucrative business because a lot of singles really want to meet up with their locals in the hopes of finding a good match. You could try the in-app advertisements where your app is free to install and there are just some ads placed in the different parts of the application. Or, you could implement a premium plan where people can have unlimited access to amazing features such as unlimited swiping, matchmaking, and so on.

3. Continued Testing


Dating apps are known to be buggy. Most of them utilize the GPS of the phone to know a user’s location and sometimes, it can be inaccurate. Therefore, continued testing is key to ensure that your app performs admirably at all times.
