You've seen the commercials. Apple prides itself on having thousands of apps available in its App Store -- one for every task imaginable, including love and dating. The App Store is chalk full of apps to connect with others, get advice, and find inspiration.
And some surveys report that people are turning to dating apps more frequently than dating websites. Flurry, an app analytics company, suggests that having a mobile dating service allows for last-minute meet ups and instant access wherever you are.
