From Dating App Video Chats to Spare Change-Saving Loan Apps

 - Sep 24, 2017
With the back to school season in full swing, the September 2017 mobile apps trends reveal a rise in the number of resources for students -- particularly college-aged kids who have grown up using their phones to meet most of their basic needs.

When it comes to apps for today's college students, dating platforms are in hot demand. No longer limited to Tinder, niche dating apps such as Cuddli, which connects those with 'nerdy' interests, are helping students of all background find their perfect match. Similarly, established platforms such as Badoo are introducing new features such as live video chatting, to bring online connections into the real world.

Beyond matchmaking apps, the September 2017 mobile apps trends also reveal a demand for financial tools that can helping students manage their spending and saving. One example is the ChangEd app, which deducts spare change from transactions and puts that money towards the user's student loans.
