Sensor Tower has published its ranking of the highest grossing dating apps across iOS and Android for November 2019.
Top of the overall ranking was Tinder, followed by Bumble, Badoo and Pairs. Tantan came fifth, while GBTQ leader Grindr appeared in sixth.
Hily, a Las Vegas-based platform which recently acquired its 10 millionth user, placed seventh. Tapple, Zoosk and Match.com completed the top 10.
The iOS App Store list featured POF rather than Tapple, and saw Pairs, Tantan, Zoosk and Match.com climb slightly.
On Google Play, Grindr ranked third, and LOVOO, MeetMe, happn and MyDates entered the top 10.
Mobile Insights Analyst Julia Chan wrote: “The top grossing dating app worldwide for November 2019 was Tinder with more than $82 million in user spending, which represented 12 percent growth from November 2018.
“(…) Bumble was the second highest earning dating app worldwide for November 2019 with close to $18 million in gross revenue, which represented 29 percent year-over-year growth from November 2018.
“About 77 percent of Bumble’s revenue was from the U.S., followed by 9 percent from Great Britain.”
Sensor Tower does not consider downloads from third-party app stores when calculating its ranking, so Chinese apps (in particular) may be underrepresented.
