With modern dating consisting of Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, and other free dating apps, people often forget about the forerunners like Match, eHarmony, and Badoo.
Founded in 2006, the platform is available in more than 190 countries around the world, translated into 47 languages ??and is one of the most used dating apps in the world. It is a freemium type app, which means that it includes in-app purchases in addition to its free download.
Badoo’s goal is for people to interact with those in their area and (if things go well) set up dates with each other. There are a few different features, like meeting people nearby, searching for users in different areas of the world, meetups (which is simply swiping on people in your area), and finally video chat, which users can take advantage of to interact. each other after talking for a while.

Those who pay for in-app purchases get even more features. These premium features (known as “Super Powers”) include the following:

- Popular Chat: Premium users can directly interact with the most popular people in the app. [Read more…]
