However, with this app, you are making 'friends' with strangers.Just like Facebook or Bebo, you can then make use of the chat & instant messaging functions to get to know people and see if there is any genuine attraction there.For people seeking new people, this fact alone makes the app highly attractive.If you are looking for that special someone, then the likelihood is that you will stand more chance using a service with so many subscribers compared to one with just a few thousand people using it.Although the makers claim that only a small proportion of the app's users are using it for finding dates, the fact is that it is primarily a way for adults to meet one another online and to flirt.
Badoo is a free cross platform app that is designed to help people make friends and hook up online in what is a twenty-first century dating site in all but name.
The social & communication functions are also geographically modelled so if you start chatting to someone and later wish to meet up, the chances are they will be in your vicinity.
The operation of swiping left and right is used, like it is with Tinder, to create matches between users. According to the creators, well over half the users who begin to communicate with each other following a successful encounter will go on to meet in person at some stage later on.
This is very much the reverse of traditional dating sites which charge subscribers or limit usage for non-fee paying users in some way.
It functions equally well on Windows, Android and i Os so you can get flirting with just about anyone online.
