Have you been single for a long time? Are you one of those unlucky few who haven’t yet been struck by Cupid’s arrow? Or are you one of those who vehemently abuse that visionless winged child who always hits you with the wrong arrow?
Well, look no further! Tinder is the Cupid of the modern era. The fun and zesty dating app helps you connect with fresh faces around you. Explore your attractions on this platform as you swipe right to ‘Like’ or left to ‘Pass’ on the people recommended by the website. If someone you like, reciprocates with a like, then consider that match made. Chat with your matches, organize dates and explore people around you through the Tinder app. As the iTunes website says, “Download now and see why over 6 billion matches and counting have been made on Tinder”.
And what more, all of it is actually free. However, unlocking some new features like Passport (through which you can swipe anywhere in the world) and Rewind (to go back to your last swipe), will need you to make an in-app purchase of 1.99$ and to continue with your subscription, you need to pay the exact amount every year. This version of the app is the Tinder Plus, and the money is deducted from your iTunes account. There are a few new improvements in the latest version of the app, which includes:
- The concept of ‘Verified Profiles’ – This badge indicates that the profile you are viewing is that of a known face – often a notable public figure.
- Al new bug fixes.
The app is quick and easy to breeze through and you ‘Like’ people by simply browsing through their profile pictures. Which is a bit shallow, we must say. You also get a lot of recommendations through mutual friends, therefore it becomes easy to increase your network. The app is clear and well ‘laid’ out! It doesn’t take much times to use it. Also, only a person whom you ‘Like’ can message you to initiate a conversation – so you don’t end up getting unwanted mails.
However Tinder is often criticised for replacing the dating culture with the new hook-up culture where it’s more about casual flirting and sex sans the relationship factor. Sometimes, your meetings may also end up in disappointments. Getting addicted to it is another issue for youngsters – it’s essential that a user knows where and when to draw the lines.
