Dating App Development

How do you develop a dating app to succeed next to the giants like Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge?

Users are willing to pay a lot to for the chance to meet the right person. So whilst this makes the dating market competitive, new players do still regularly emerge. After all, there are around 3.8 billion singles in the world waiting to get connected.

How Can I Succeed?

At Appetiser Apps, we’ve learned that dating all comes down to preference. At first, the larger players will have more users than you. Give users an opportunity to more accurately match with someone they care about, and you’ve got yourself a winner!

Ask Yourself These Questions:

What makes your app different?

Do you have a good reason for users to use your app compared to others? Your unique advantage can be a specific feature, a more engaged audience, a new way of making connections, or a way to make dating more convenient.

Do you have a unique audience?

Sometimes we don’t need new features, we just need to focus on communities and users. Think about dating for pet lovers, sports enthusiasts, workers, educators, or even people who like to go on blind dates. Users love connecting with like-minded people! If a single audience or demographic loves your app, then you’re already ahead.

Would you use your own app?

Whether or not you are single, ask yourself if you would use (and potentially pay for) your own app? Your dating app will be a business, after all, and the average paying Tinder user pays $225 USD per year. There’s an enormous market to exploit out there.

What Does My Dating App Need?

Designs to Cherish

People decide within seconds whether they are attracted to another person. With apps, it’s no different. Standout designs are crucial to your App Store success. Our team is currently ranked 7th best app design team in the world, no other Australian company is even in the top 100.

Technology to Match

We hire the top 1% of developers globally to back your idea with quality coding. When other dating apps set the benchmark, we must match it and eventually beat it. The greater the user experience, the longer users stay on your app, and the higher the chance that they become paying customers of yours. Reliability matters!

A Loving Team to Grow With You

We don’t just do dating app development, Appetiser is your growth machine. Let us accompany you on your journey to success. In the 5 years since we’ve started, two of our clients became billion-dollar companies, three are halfway there. We’d love for you to be next.

Pioneering Aged Care Communication

BarbCare was founded by Louise and David Harris after Louise's mother started feeling isolated at the care home she lived in. Their idea was for a communication tool to keep aged care residents, families and carers connected. The startup is now making a difference in people lives across Australia and is the first app of its kind anywhere in the world.

After working with Appetiser, Barbcare’s aged care platform was able to partner with Bupa within months of launch.

I’ve worked with several other app development companies on various projects and Appetiser stands head and shoulders above them all.

Initial designs and prototypes were produced very quickly and they were fantastic. Development updates come through weekly, we’re very happy with the first version of our app. Michael’s knowledge and experience are invaluable and we’re looking forward to continuing our app journey with Appetiser.
