Unlike other dating apps, Hinge offers a lot of exciting features. It was started in 2012 and went through rebranding after 3 years. The unique feature of this app is that it is designed to be deleted once the user has found a match. If you are tired of swiping profiles, we suggest that you check out this app instead.
Most of the members of the app are from the United States. Apart from this, half of the users of the app are men. As far as the age range is concerned, most users of the app are between the age of 24 and 32. So, the users are looking to develop a serious relationship.
Once you have become a member of this app, you can use all of the contacting features, such as sending messages, likes, and comments. And the good thing is that you don’t have to pay anything to use these features.
However, you can also go for a premium plan that requires a subscription. Once you have this subscription plan, you can get limitless likes. With the regular package, you are limited to send only 10 likes per day.
You want to send a Like, all you need to do is tap the heart button on their profile. You can like their photo or written answers. You can also add a comment and like it in order to initiate a conversation.
The app shows the profiles of the recommended matches via a roulette-like style. Moreover, if you tap the X button rather than send a like, you will get another profile recommendation. If you give someone a like and they send you like to, you will get a notification.
The application does not charge a fee for sending messages. Another good thing is that there is no limit to sending messages. However, sending messages will only work in case of mutual matches. After the successful match with another user, you can start sending messages via the messaging tab. But keep in mind that only text messages are allowed. You cannot send photos.
During the account creation process, the profiles display the agreed information on your profile. This includes photos, written answers and personal details on the profile. All you need to do is scroll down to check out every photo and other information about the member.
Design and Usability
Hinge was redesigned after its acquisition by the Match Group. After the redesigning, the design became much better and appealing to the users. The clear interface and vibrant colors of the app help attract the attention of possible matches.
As a matter of fact, the design promotes fundamental features. Apart from this, you can also find lively illustrations instead of real people photos and advertisements from Hinge.
In short, it is quite easy to use Hinge. You can use the main interface of the app to access all the features. At the bottom, you can find Tabs where you can get notifications about new interactions.
