Dating app that puts focus on connecting users through real friends just as they do at a social gathering. Unlike GPS-based apps that choose location as one of the main matching criteria, Hinge finds a compatible partner based on mutual friends. On the one hand, it helps to avoid randos, but your matching opportunities get so severely restricted by your friends’ networks that it may slow down or even impede your dating life.

Pros:

  • no randos because of friend-based matching.

Cons:

  • account verification via Facebook
  • user must have at least one Facebook friend who is already using the app
  • matching restrictions – max. 15 matches per day
  • no profile creation – photos and other information are taken from Facebook, user can’t upload anything
  • doesn’t take into account relationship status.

    Great app, bad update App is great but the last update makes it crash when you open it so it’s basically useless right now.

  2. BONBON196

    New update won’t work I downloaded the newest update a few days ago and the app crashes every time I try to open it.

  3. Apl9000

    Good app, bad development New update truncates every message with an ellipses (aka …) so you can’t read anyone’s full messages if they go over a few words.

  4. HockeyGal808

    New version doesn’t work New update won’t let me even log in, when old version worked fine. Needs to be fixed!!

  5. Jmateen

    Just another rip off of tinder… Nice try

  6. Angryrugbyman

    Crashes and doesn’t save data New version crashes all the time and makes you click through matches multiple times. Back to beta guys.

  7. TheBRADLeyB

    Very limited app Only getting so many matches a day is frustrating, been doing this app everyday for over a month and still only one match.

    Disappearing act? I downloaded the app, but before I even got a chance to use it more than once, it disappeared from my phone.

    Great app, but… I’m giving it one star to hopefully inspire the creators to fix all of the bugs. It’s amazing how they’d even submit this build to the App Store. It’s like there is no one at the company actually using the app and testing to see if it works. The sole purpose of this app is to communicate with people… And that is the feature that rarely ever works. Great concept… You’ll have a 5 star review from me when you get the app to work. Until then you’ll just have an incredibly frustrated user.

    Test your app. The whole app. Can’t register. The Zipcode” (there’s a space between ZIP code by the way) text field after resigning first responder assigns the string to the intentions label. Thus clearing the zip field and never enabling the connect button. Maybe it’s from iOS8 but have never seen this problem before and based by other reviews sounds like you have you’re hands full with bugs and performance issues.”

    App size 1GB Please tell me why the app size is 1 GB and growing?! I’m about to delete it because I have no storage on my phone

  12. Jru550

    Update doesn’t work Updated yesterday. Batch hasn’t loaded since even after expanding radius to max. Needs a fix

  13. DimitryMak

    Doesn’t log in Won’t even let you start using it. Don’t even bother downloading.

  14. 30triesToPickAName

    Great concept, bad execution. Really slow. This app sends several notifications to my phone every time there is any kind of update to matches or messages. It’s a great concept but the execution needs work.

  15. Lonely wolf32

    Inaccurate I keep getting matches with people that I have not favorited. A bit of a nuisance.

  16. Purpeana

    Good idea, poor execution. Good idea and i get good matches, but I never get any notifications. Chat feature is awful. I don’t have high hopes, but I also don’t have to put much effort in. Hinge has a lot if potential but right now it’s not very good.

  17. Djm26sc26

    So effin slow Kinda reminds me of how I imagine windows 3.1 to function in today’s world…

  18. Bopbop8954

    Useless!! Nobody responds to messages on this app! Hinge needs to be better about not showing people profiles that aren’t active.

  19. Amccur

    From great to worst! All I got to say is this app went from great to worst after the recent update.

  20. BigSmiles11

    Can’t login App doesn’t work!

  21. sethfri

    Don’t Update Latest version deletes some messages, meaning I don’t know if I’ve already messaged a girl or not, making for some really awkward interactions. Do not update! Additionally, STILL doesn’t support the latest iPhone resolutions

  22. Chelsey Elizabeth

    Can’t even log in. I would like to just try this app, but I can’t even get past the login screen. Very disappointed.

  23. thetobster

    Way worse than expected Edit after new update: messaging still doesn’t work. I don’t get a push notification when I receive a message. What’s the point if that doesn’t work properly? I heard about hinge from friends in other cities and couldn’t believe how terrible it was once I finally got on it. As others have said, the big issues are: lack of privacy regarding my full name Inability to chose your own photos or even remove ones they’ve selected and put on my profile Lack of control over who I match with. What is the point of selecting traits for myself if I cannot choose what I am looking for? Fix these issues and you might have a usable app- at the moment not so much
