The founder, Emmanuel Okeke, was born and raised in Nigeria and started Friendite in order to provide a bespoke dating service for Nigerians and Africans.
Popularity in Nigeria: According to its website, Friendite is “the Nigerian most popular dating website among singles.” However, the Google Play Store shows that Friendite has had between 1,000 and 5,000 installs as of June 2016.
All the same, the new version of the Blackberry OS (Blackberry 10 OS 10.3.1) provides access to the Amazon app store.
Amazon offers apps made for Android OS; so, if your Black Berry has the new OS, go right ahead and download Tinder from there.
Device availability: Zoosk can be downloaded onto mobiles using Apple, Android and Windows operating systems. Unfortunately, Zoosk is not available for Black Berry devices, unless they are using the Android operating system.
Verdict: 6/10 – Zoosk is Nigeria’s most underrated dating app.
You can find people based on age, location and gender.
The Tinder app is very simple, it displays pictures of people in your vicinity and allows you to either swipe right to “like” the person, or swipe left to continue searching.
Tens of thousands of Badoo’s huge users are located in Lagos, Abuja and other communities throughout Nigeria.
In fact, the British Broadcasting Corporation reported that Badoo was the most downloaded dating app in Nigeria during 2015.
Device availability: A significant disadvantage of Friendite is that it is only available for Android mobiles at the moment.
Users of Black Berry, Windows and Apple phones will need to consider other options.
