After Hours App Series: Best Aussie Flirting And Dating Apps

Your smartphone is smart, but can it help you hook up? Here’s our picks of the best local apps dedicated to sweet, sweet lurv.

Grindr / Blendr

Grindr and Blendr serve the same basic premise — find somebody nearby to date, flirt with and possibly hook up with — with Grindr being aimed at the Gay and Bisexual community and Blendr for the Straight community.

RSVP Dating

RSVP Dating links in to RSVP.com.au, allowing you to check your account, search for other interested singles and see who’s been peeking at your profile recently.

Oasis

Oasis is another dating option with worldwide reach, and, like RSVP Dating, an accent on using the functions of the website in a more app-accessible way

Ashley Madison

Already in a relationship and after some action on the side? That’s pretty much the mission statement of Ashley Madison, a dating site for married people. The app once again interfaces with the web service, allowing you to send winks to other married folks and check out their profiles.

Skout

Skout’s mission is a little less flirty and a little more friendly, if that’s your thing; it claims a global userbase, so it’d be feasible to be friends with people in Adelaide or Vladivostok simultaneously. Where you go to from there is up to you.
