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.

    Never got off the ground Can’t rate the actual use of the app as it won’t let me register/login. Tried all the recommended fixes but none worked. Will not connect with FB.

  2. Aged 50 years while waiting

    Slow Slow Slow I think I aged 50 years waiting for this apt to load. Great concept, terrible execution.

    Too Many Bugs I moved to a new city but the app won’t let me change my zip code. This was a great app when I could find local people. Now it’s just a waste of space on my phone

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

  5. AricCougar

    Fake app It’s a fake app that steals your personal Facebook information and doesn’t connect you with anyone. The positive reviews are fake too. Deleted.

  6. BatteryStaples

    Can’t update location Settings page does bone work and impossible to update zip code.

  7. Patrick Mc Gann

    Latest update is a disaster Not sure what happened in the latest update, but all my messages are now truncated and end in a series dots… Really annoying!

  8. VieLaVida

    Malfunctions Suddenly this app started malfunctioning. Now I can only read a line or two of someone’s message and the rest gets cut off with… So not worth it, since you pretty much can’t communicate properly with anyone. Will be uninstalling until I hear this gets fixed.

    Bugs on bugs on bugs After a reinstall and 20 minutes of waiting it still cant log me in through Facebook. More bugs than an ant farm.

    Great idea, but no one on it! I like the idea of this app, and I was sent potential matches for the first few weeks, but now there haven’t been any for about a week. My preferences are set pretty wide too for distance and age. I have about 700 friends on Facebook from which to network too. I’m very disappointed. Thinking I’ll delete it.

    Great Idea but not actually implemented The limited access to certain cities make need to change right away. This is lame.

    Used to be better than tinder but… The selection has gone way downhill the longer that I’ve had the app. Pretty much stopped using it because I can’t remember the last time I hit like on someone. They claim to be more exclusive and selective, which if that were the case, it should be more filtered when it comes to height for example. When you’re being provided with so few options a day, they should be giving better options. I’ve never had a problem with the messages disappearing though.

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

  14. Ninja fruit yay!

    More cities need to be added I feel like only big cities have been added to hinge. Please add more places that aren’t big cities like mobile al or pensacola fl.

    Great idea, poor execution The idea for this app is great, to connect people to friends of friends. But the execution is terrible. This app has awful UI, is buggy and slow (or fails) to load. I often have to close out and re-open. Most annoying, it fails to notify me when I have a message or fails to send a message that has appeared to go through and then doesn’t notify me. Needs a lot of work to run smoothly.

  16. sanastosjr

    Messaging is terrible Crashes all the time. Looks like it’s posting and doesn’t, or the opposite. Slow. Just fix the messaging already!

  17. Stellalicous!

    Please fix the app So buggy. Slow. Crashes. Does not send messages. Lots of other things. Fix it!

  18. DimitryMak

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

  19. Zahid Avi

    Doesn’t work Simple as that

  20. Sirhcv

    Crashes Often Decent UI / UX but crashes several time a day

  21. AWillS

    Great service, terrible app The service itself is nice, but wow is the app buggy – messages not sending, random connection errors, and frequent freezing make the app almost unusable.

  22. PhilBrandn

    So horrible There’s literally no one on this app. Tinder is way better.

  23. Crfh3

    No go from the get-go Doesn’t let you login. Period. Argh!
