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.

    Stuck?? Ok soo i’ve been on tinder,pof,zoosk u know all those typical dating websites figured I’d try this one and it’s pretty much stuck on the homepage and won’t let me match or anything. it just is stuck there telling me to invite my friends…. Also the few times I get a match now are nothing I would even consider dating ever in my entire life there so not even close to any match”.. Don’t waste your time getting this app”

    Awful This is truly the worst app I’ve ever used. It matches me with people from France and Mexico, when I live in the USA and requested to be matched with people within 25 miles of me. Even worse, the chat system doesn’t work, defeating the whole point of the app. I emailed the Hinge support address about these issues and got zero response. Great idea, truly terrible execution.

    I have no people to talk to? This is definitely not working yet. Been waiting for days and it still says that it’s loading people fore to talk to

  4. Lonestarspice

    Horrible The fact that it makes you have 16 photos is ridiculous. Once you change that, it might be better. Then again you know how people think they are better than the people that use their app.

    Needs better pictures control Let me select from pictures in albums other than Photos of Me” – Tinder is great in that aspect. Let me zoom in on pictures when choosing them

    Stuck on ‘downloading user info’… Forever stuck, tried on iphone & ipad. Never says what the problem is. Crap app, instant delete.

  7. Vadu5864

    Frustrating Newest update won’t open at all. Hinge is a great idea but the software is so frequently buggy. Now an improved” version won’t open at all?”

  8. 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.

    Chatting doesn’t work I like the concept of this app, but the entire point and goal — chatting with your matches — doesn’t work. Messages are cut short with …” and no way to expand the message.”

  10. BrD1887

    Major Message Glitch in new update Such a good concept but it just never seems to run well. Newest update: Messages get cut off by ellipses and it hinders the whole conversation part of the app..which is kinda important.

  11. Nyesq4

    Repeated error message Keep getting and unknown error message which force quits the app. Not sure what the issue is.

  12. Sweet Dria

    Not safe! I don’t like how it provides people that I don’t know: my last name, place of employment and where I went to school. Also you can’t change this in the settings, it’s just inviting a stalker! That’s why most dating sites only show a first name or profile name and let you choose when to share your personal info with a potential dater. Not a safe site for single women, lawsuit waiting to happen!

  13. Strangestest strangerer

    Really? The app rarely ever reloads people to choose from. I think it has done it twice in the past month. I check everyday around noon and again later only to be told that’s it for now””

  14. creativestige

    Still only available in DC. Great concept, but doesn’t do much good for that 0.199% of the USA.

  15. LaReina_Marie

    Do people really check their messages ? No one gets back to you on this app because no one really checks it. Also they have people on their that list their city as SF but don’t really live here. Interesting idea but they need to change a lot to get mass adoption. Also the only people on this app are in Tech… No thanks!

  16. UserNYC10000

    Can’t open app after update, please fix After the update all the app does is crash on my iPhone 5. Please fix!

  17. Aeroeng16

    Messages truncated on iPhone 4 After updating to the latest version, incoming and outgoing messages on an iPhone 4 seem to be truncated, with the last few words missing …

  18. lidashepherd

    Waste of time bc not a smart” app” Don’t bother: despite a promising premise, the Hinge team” does nothing to make the app “smart

  19. MedDave

    New version keeps crashing despite repeated re-installs. Crashes

  20. Sarahfene

    Can’t use I live in the capitol of my state, and it says that it is not available for me to use.

  21. Schatzilein12674

    Unreliable Fun app… When it works. Keeps crashing. Doesn’t even open ever since last update.

  22. Eye4Detail

    This version is non-functional Just like everyone else, the app never gets past the Downloading User Info” screen

  23. Alsox9

    Terrible When I try to open up the app it downloads halfway then closes out
