"What is interesting about an online dating app in a country like India... In a country where matrimonial websites have dominated for years and families fix marriages on the basis of caste and religion, dating apps are redefining how a small but growing number of women and men in their 20s and 30s meet.
In the larger cities like New Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore, urban educated professionals, that include scores of women who move to the big cities for employment and studies, are increasingly deciding where they study, work, live and date.

Last year, we noted that the Thai Joop app was a bit more developed on i OS than on Android.
(One had a great story, though, read it below.) Also, note that 70 percent of the respondents were gay men, and the breakdown for the straight respondents is 60 percent male to 40 percent female.
The apps are popular with those between the ages of 18 and 34.
Isn't the whole point of internet dating that you can meet someone new?
This hook up app for friends (and friends of friends) is the equivalent of passing 'I Like You' notes in class.
Here, we take the biggest alternatives to Tinder and give them a spin to find out what (if anything) they do different.
The USP: Gives you the chance to tell your friends (rather than strangers) that you want to sleep with them.
OPPORTUNITY FOR APP MAKERS In terms of potential, there is incredible room for growth everywhere as more and more Indians adopt the smartphone.
