I really think it depends what you're looking for.It's almost like online hookup apps are designed by vain sex-freaks, for vain sex-freaks.
I met my fiancé through "online dating" apps but I was upfront about not wanting a hookup and so I guess a lot of hedonists gave me a swerve because of it. I found that it was a good way to cut through the preamble of having to go out and try to meet people in a bar, since I had no gay friends who might have tried to play matchmaker. Instead, I used those type of apps as a way to chit-chat with someone and if they seemed fun then see if they wanted to meet up for a coffee or something, and for me it worked out.
I guess if you are looking for a never-ending cock-carousel you'll find that, but if you want to use it as a way to meet people specifically with a view to it developing into a relationship, that's also an option.
