Badoo More Popular Than Tinder

The Spicy Mobile study shows that making friends in the virtual world is becoming increasingly popular in Poland. In December 2018, more than 840,000 people used dating apps, an increase of 36% compared to the previous year. Interestingly, Badoo emerged as the most popular dating app, with more than 268,000 people launching it at least once in December. Tinder came in second with 176,000 users.

It is important to note that the above data reflects passive activity measurement on Android mobile devices. According to Spicy Mobile analysts, the actual number of users of dating apps is slightly higher when considering iOS users, which account for about 16.9% of traffic from mobile devices (Gemius, January 2019).

What Do People in Poland Like About Badoo and Tinder?

Creating an account on Tinder and Badoo is quite similar – both require either a phone number or an email address. For those who choose to link their accounts to Facebook, some of the information can be imported automatically. Compared to Tinder, Badoo offers more opportunities to personalize a user’s profile with additional information such as height, weight, relationship status, desire to have children, and hobbies.

The app also offers more interaction options such as messaging, sending virtual gifts, and live broadcasting, as well as the ability to view other profiles in a deck of cards or people nearby. Additional features can be purchased, such as the ability to increase profile visibility or view a list of people who have liked your profile.

Tinder is designed to be easy and intuitive to use – after you sign up, it only takes a few minutes to fill out your profile with a 500-character description, up to six photos, and information about your job and education. You can also integrate your account with Instagram and Spotify. Tinder’s unique feature is that users can only connect if they both swipe right, which shows they have a mutual interest.

Top 6 Most Used Dating Apps in Poland

Data from Spicy Mobile shows that Tinder and Badoo have a combined market share of 57% when it comes to the number of first-screen app views in the dating app market. The rest is made up of dozens of other dating apps, but with much less reach. So if you’re a Polish single looking for love, where else should you look?

  • Badoo: The top choice for online dating in the World
  • Tinder: The easiest platform to find a date in Poland
  • Bumble / Adopte: Where women hold the power
  • Sympatia: Popular Polish dating app
  • eDarling: Exists in Poland but it is not so popular
  • Facebook Dating: A free and user-friendly choice for Poles

Badoo – One of the Most Popular Dating Apps In the World

Badoo is a great choice if you’re looking for a reliable partner. It’s extremely popular not only in Poland, but around the world, and you’ll see why. It’s simple and easy to use, and it’s free. You can also buy extra features to make your profile more visible. Although there are some glitches in the application, they are few and far between compared to similar apps. Plus, the verification process helps weed out bots – one of the biggest problems with many dating apps.

Tinder – The Easiest Platform to Find a Date in Poland

Tinder makes it easy to connect with potential partners. It’s based on the concept of first impressions – just like on the street: you walk by someone and immediately decide if you like them or not. If you do, swipe right. If not, swipe left. If you both like each other, you can quickly chat to get to know each other better and then schedule a date. Everything is done quickly, easily, and with just a few swipes and taps.

The downside is that the simplicity can attract people who aren’t looking for long-term relationships, just short-term hookups. Of course, this can be worked out in conversation, but you need to be aware of the risks. If you’re not looking for a one-night stand, this could be great for you.

Bumble – Where Women Hold The Power

My next app is shaking up the dating landscape a bit, and of course, it is not without their critics. This is where women are in charge. Guys can create the best profiles they can, but it’s up to the ladies to start the conversation. On Bumble, the rules are as follows: women have 24 hours to contact a man, and he has 24 hours to respond, or the connection is lost. The creators believe it’s pointless to pursue a relationship if neither party is interested.

Sympatia – Old Polish Dating Platform

Sympatia is another app in Poland that gives you some options. The only drawback (as with its competitors) is that you have to sign up for a subscription to get access to all these options. That way, you won’t have to waste time going through hundreds of unsuitable matches. With the full version of the app, you can be very specific about the person you want to connect with, including their exact location. It’s ideal for singles who know exactly what they’re looking for.

eDarling – Not So Popular in Poland

eDarling is not the best place to find your perfect match in Poland. They claim that with a large user base and well-functioning algorithms, you can easily find your match. I am not sure if this works in Poland as I do not know a single person who uses this app.

Facebook Dating App – Quite Popular in Poland

At the end of 2020, Facebook Dating was launched in Poland. The advantages? Facebook Dating is completely free to use, the interface is simple to navigate, and there are many potential matches. And don’t worry – none of your friends will appear in your matches unless you specifically choose to include them. The downside? Facebook can be quite resource-intensive, so keep that in mind. All in all, it’s an option worth considering.


Tinder is one of the top dating apps when it comes to popularity and ease of use in Poland. On the other hand, Badoo offers a more precise search, which may take more energy, but can pay off. You can also try one of these Polish portals, such as Sympatia, which has shown considerable success in bringing couples together.

Dating on Facebook has also become popular lately in Polnad. This option is convenient because it doesn’t require installing other applications and it’s free. In the next part, we will discuss more about these and other dating sites in the hope that you will find the perfect one for you.
