Tinder offers a few downloadable apps to access their database; on this page, we’ll focus on the Tinder iPhone app review.
It’s simple to use the app-only dating site: install, connect your Facebook account, and then swipe left if you’re not interested, swipe right if you are. Currently free with some added paid-for (freemium) features. If you actually want to connect with a lot of people though, you’ll have to pay. Do we recommend it? Read on.
When Tinder first came out, it was amazing. Lots of random hookups were available and shared, and met a lot of really wonderful people.
It seems now Tinder has lost a lot of its luster; way too many fake accounts, which limits the number of people you can meet. Add that to the quality of people seeming less than in prior years, and the new added cost seems significant, depending on your age.
Under 29 and in the US? Tinder Plus will cost you $9.99. Over 30? $19.99 ($22.99 in Canada).
So why would you bother with this, if previously it was all free? It depends on what you’re after. If it’s sheer numbers, upgrading is worth your while: you get unlimited swipes, the ability to unswipe (“Rewind”), and the option to change your location if traveling (“Passport”).
While much of this was available to female users the entire time (or, it was for the female that tested Tinder for this site), the male that wrote most of this review said he has yet to see any of those options on the free side of things. Good to know.
