What's bad: When using any dating app you have the threat of getting in contact with an unsavory character.
Luckily, CMB has a great report feature so if there's anyone making you feel uncomfortable, you can let the app know.
What's not: The app has only been around for a few months, so you may not find a ton of locals on there.
Age limit: 12 and up Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Yubo, formerly known as Yellow, feels kind of like a cross between Tinder and Snapchat — you can swipe right on profiles that look interesting and chat via live video.
The app has also added a bunch of safety features, like cell phone verification to keep fake profiles from cluttering up the site — but creepers can own cell phones too, so you still have to be careful.
What's not: The swipe feature can make it feel pretty superficial, and while it’s supposed to be geared towards making new friends, a lot of people use it as a casual hookup site.
Age limit: 17 and up Available for: i OSWhat's good: One of the crappy things about dating apps is that you’re making a snap judgment based on someone’s profile pic — so you could end up vetoing your soulmate just because they're not your usual type.
The fun thing about Taffy is that everyone’s profile is blurry at first, and the more you chat with someone, the clearer their photo becomes — so by the time you know what they really look like, you already have a pretty good feel for their personality.
Every afternoon, the app will curate a list of matches it thinks you will like, meaning there's no endless swiping. The app will suggest icebreakers to get the convo started.Age limit: none Available for: i OS and Android What's good: Okay, so this isn’t technically a dating app — but it can make “offline” dating a little less awkward, and that’s everything.Nearify lets you view a list of local events and invite friends who might be interested.You can also sync it with your Facebook profile to see what events your friends are attending — so, you know, you can just happen to show up at that concert your crush is attending.What's not: Not everyone is super-active on Facebook, so you might not be able to see what your friends are up to.
