What is Tinder!

Tinder is one of the best online dating apps that matches people based on their physical attraction to each other. It shows you the other Tinder users who fall within a specified age range, gender, sexuality, and other constraints within a certain distance from your current location. You can have a look at the person and decide when you like them or not.

If you do like then you can swipe right and see if they like you back, if you don’t then you’ll never know. If you both like each other then Tinder’s message option will be made available and offer a private chat thread in which you can talk and get to know each other.

How to Use Tinder

Tinder is available as free to install app for Android and iOS and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Earlier, Facebook required users to signup and login with Facebook but slowly shifted to offer an option to create an account using only a phone number. While this prevents some of the options such as pulling photos directly from Facebook and showing your mutual friends, it does come handy for users who do not want to have a Facebook account.

Tinder looks for people who match the criteria and places using their profiles as a card on your screen with a large photo of the person, you can tap on the card to see a short description that they’ve written along with more photos.

You can also swipe right if you like them and swipe left if you don’t, this simplifies the UI even further. When you like someone on Tinder and they like you back, Tinder will tell you that a match has been made and then opens up the messaging options. You’ll first have to fill up your profile which the other users will be seeing. Tinder pulls up some information from your Facebook profile such as Job and Education but you can choose what data you want to display and then write up a small bio showing yourself off.

You can also link your Tinder account to Instagram and Spotify, link the Tinder account to Instagram will show the most recent Instagram photos on your profile while linking to Spotify will show some of your favorite songs.

Super Likes and Boosts

Tinder has a few extra features over the above-mentioned basic ones, Super Likes is one of the important features. You can Super Like someone by tapping on the blue star icon or swiping up on their profile, unlike as in the case of a regular match, this will immediately send them a notification that they have been super liked and give them a choice to see your profile. While this gives the user a more upfront way to try and match with the other user, some users might also see this as a little desperate. In the free account, you will get only one Super Like per day and you will need to use it wisely.

Tinder also comes with a Boost feature in the premium version. This option allows you to push your profile to the top of the queue of Tinder and every Tinder user for the next 30 minutes will see you first. This makes it much more likely for you to get a match, three boosts can cost Rs 283 each which means they are certainly not cheap. You can get a better discount by buying them in a pack of ten or twenty, you can also find the Boosts by tapping on the lightning bolt icon.
