Tinder is slowly losing ground in India, unlike QuackQuack and Bumble. In the past 6 months, QuackQuack received an average of 14.9k downloads, an increase of almost 40%. Bumble’s downloads grew by 60.8% in the past 6 months.

Not surprisingly, with India being a market dominated by Android devices, dating app downloads on Apple’s App Store are much lower than on Google Play.

Tinder comes out as the most popular dating app on the App Store. Tinder has received on average 1.6k daily downloads and has seen a growth of 20.7% in the past 6 months. OkCupid, which, just like Tinder, is part of Match Group, has seen a significant decline in download growth, affecting its ranking on the App Store.

With a star rating of 3.9, QuackQuack is the highest-rated dating app on the Play Store in India. Bumble follows with a rating of 3.7. With a star rating of 3, Tinder is the lowest-rated app among its competitors.

In November 2021, Google rolled out an update where users would only see an app’s average ratings on a local basis, rather than global. After this transition, we saw that Bumble’s daily ratings gradually improved. Tinder’s ratings experienced a sharp drop after the update and have continued to decrease since.
