Sensor Tower, a firm providing data and insights on the mobile app economy, has published its ranking of the top dating apps by downloads for September 2019.
Worldwide, Tinder topped the charts. It was followed by Badoo, Tantan, MeetMe and Happn in the top five.
Hily came in sixth, Bumble in seventh and Skout in eighth. GBTQ market leader Grindr was placed ninth and Match-owned POF ranked tenth.
The Sensor Tower App Store and Google Play rankings for September each had some unique entrants. Zhenai and Hinge appeared on the list for iOS downloads at 7th and 8th respectively, while Blued, SayHi Chat and Tagged were placed 8th, 9th and 10th on Android.
Mobile Insights Analyst Julia Chan said: “Tinder was the most downloaded dating app worldwide for September 2019 with close to 5.5 million installs, which represented a 4 percent increase from September 2018.
“The countries with the most installs of the app during this period were the United States at 19 percent of its total downloads and Brazil at 12 percent.”
The overall list has changed significantly month-on-month. In August, Zoosk, LOVOO, Pairs and Match.com all appeared in the top 10.
The July ranking, meanwhile, saw iDates and OkCupid place on Android.
Sensor Tower does not consider downloads from third-party app stores when calculating its ranking, so Chinese apps (in particular) may be underrepresented.
