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.

    Not available? Apparently not available in a metropolitan area of 4 million. My advice, don’t launch an app until it’s completed. (Usable in all areas)

  2. Zztop4life

    Update broke it Update caused the issues it claimed to fix. App is now a waste of memory.

  3. Derek89111

    Worst app I’ve ever downloaded Hinge downloaded all my Facebook user data and then told me to shove off because none of my friends have the app. Don’t waste your time downloading.

  4. RuggedBuff

    Eclipses (…) cutting off messages App worked great until latest update, which said was to fix bugs. Instead it introduced one.

    Edit pics needed Basically pulled a bunch of pics of me and my ex from Facebook. So that’s great for a dating app. Need to fix this ASAP. Good concept but needs some work. You can’t automate everything.

  6. queenOfTheBees

    Major bug cripples functionality Like others, I’m unable to read the full messages from matches since they are truncated with a …”. Kind of the whole point of the app

  7. hbombhbomb

    buggggggy this app is so buggy with its messaging feature! missing messages, slow, freezes up while chatting

  8. adamadam09

    Messaging issues Fix the problem where users receive a notification but the message doesn’t show up in the thread for 20+ minutes. Terrible

  9. ClayK2000

    Still slow…Performance better but not fast enough 10-90+seconds to open and 15+seconds to wait after you hit heart or X. The performance of this app is greatly improved than prior releases but still the worst app i use. If it wasn’t for the great people I meet, I’d delete this. Hinge needs to fix it ASAP!

  10. VMG091

    Wouldn’t load I couldn’t even get this app to load past the initial screen. It’s been downloading my user content from Facebook all day, so I deleted it. Never even got to use the app.

  11. C02536

    Terrible performance Slow and buggy. Not worth it

  12. Hounddog233

    Needs expansion They need to expand to more cities. It’s annoying and I’ll probably forget about this app and move to another one if they neglect the mid size markets forever. Needed: Louisville KY, Charleston SC, Honolulu.

  13. Robert Kyle Waldrop

    This app is terrible Not only does it constantly present people that don’t live within the vicinity you set, the matches aren’t even the same orientation I set my preferences to. Without being able to preform the primary function of the app properly, save yourself the hassle of flipping through this Tinder knockoff.

  14. unsoho

    Idea is great; app not so much The idea is awesome. But the app… Crashes all the time Offers no profile editing Pulls ALL photos from your Facebook Profile album, even those marked Only Me or otherwise restricted (!) They used to email you but now their touted messenger is the only way to communicate (although there remains a slider button to choose email me” support confirms they don’t anymore) and it is AW-FUL. Messenger crashes the app

  15. Chillingsworst

    Would be a nice app if it worked Pictures don’t load. Waste of time.

  16. Mjb0000090

    Why only 5 at a time? You may have 100’s of matches but will only give you 5 per day. What a waste of time for no particular reason.

  17. Lalalad4

    Not available in my area yet? Ugh

  18. im cool like that

    Only two choices for sexual orientation I had just downloaded this app and it only gave me the choice of gay or straight. Frankly, I don’t fit into either of those categories. So I deleted the app.

  19. Zikans

    Still fails at sending and updating messages I don’t I understand how they can fail at nailing down basic functionality. I had three messages in a row fail to send to three different people. If anything it’s gotten worse as updates go along.

  20. Connor S.

    Great App until this update. Now it won’t launch! App. Won’t. Launch. I have message notifications appearing on my phone but I can never access the app. Fix!

  21. Skipdf1

    Like tinder Waste of time meeting randos

  22. GolftiRipoff

    Geared towards young people with lots of single friends If you don’t have lots of single friends, the app is apparently pointless. They also show you matches of people who aren’t even on the app and then encourage the friend” of that person to have them join. Totally sketchy and pointless. If you’re going to show me 7 matches per day

  23. Paull555

    App crash App crashes every time I open it. Needs new update
