Russian dating spase
In the larger Android dating market, Tinder doesn’t quite have things its own way.
Despite sitting comfortably in second place with more than 20 million installs, London-based Badoo trumped it with more than 27 million installs overall on Android.
Initially releasing in the Russian market, the app was translated into English and released on the App Store in October 2014.
From that point onward, the center of Pure’s revenue generation shifted from Russia to the US.
While Badoo is going head to head with Tinder successfully, Happn and Pure show that carving out a distinct niche can give a service a chance in the competitive dating space.
From a download perspective, the US is the place to go if you’re looking for love on Tinder, especially if you have an i Phone.You can’t put a price on love, but you can certainly put a revenue figure on the mobile dating industry.The never-ending search for true love has helped the top dating apps generate more than 0 million in revenue so far this year, according to Newzoo’s Global App Intelligence.Tinder, the spark that set the industry alight, remains its brightest star.Having revolutionized the dating game with its now ubiquitous swiping mechanics, it’s no big surprise to see it dominate on i OS.
Tantan, a Chinese Tinder clone that has the added bonus of censoring phrases like “hook up buddy” in the chat, sits in fourth place on i OS.
