    It seems like there are a ton of niche dating apps coming out lately.

    Another example is Collide, a Christian dating app www.collideapps.com

    Full disclosure: I built that app with 2 friends.

    Do you think these niche apps will be successful? If yes/no, why?

    Curious to hear everyone's thoughts on this topic.

    Attacking a niche instead of a broad category usually is a better idea. In the case of dating apps, if your niche is big enough (and there are a lot of christians out there with their iPhones), you'll probably succeed. :) And now when you have a working codebase, being you I would start to think to "reskin" your app for other niches (single moms, 50+ only, only beautiful etc.). GL!

    Think its personally a huge shame theres apps for christians to date christians. I'm not religious but i havent got a problem dating anyone regardless of their religion. Does it matter what religion people are or what colour etc ?

    I have friends married to girls who are very highly religious yet their husbands are athiests.

    In the year 2015 surely people should date anyone they want regardless of colour/religion or anything else

    So much for God saying to love everyone etc !
