  • 3 improvements to help my dating sanity Jan 6, 2020

    By anniedee443
    1) A “close the flood gates” feature. The problem: 65 guys like my profile in the same week. If I respond to all my matches in real time, I’m tied up in 30 convos and a slave to my phone. If I only talk to a few dudes at a time, I can’t get back to some people for 4-6 weeks. And by then they’re tied up in other convos, deleted the app, in their work busy season, whatever. It’s not conducive to convos and dates. I’d suggest the option to take my profile “off the grid” while I handle a backed up queue of potential matches. Then I can be fully present for the next batch o’ humans, at the very same time they’re also fully present. 2) Upholding your member principles. When someone makes a profile, ask if they’re looking for a relationship before they can move forward. Your brand promise is “the relationship app” - yet I still have to ask every single prospect if they’re only looking for a hook up, and many of them are. Oust them, please. (I speculate those aren’t your paying members anyway, right?) 3) Make premium $9.99 again - or at least put it on sale here and there for active users. It’s a price I’m willing to pay to avoid the annoying lack of filters in the basic version (removing the height filter from basic was low key devastating, thanks for that.) You guys certainly know how expensive dating is, don’t give us single folk another price hurdle! Please? 🙏🏼

    Current bug I have noticed is that, if you hit the back button to go back to a profile, it doesn't go back to the most recent profile you passed but instead another one in the stack. This feature used to work before. Overall I like this app better than the other dating apps, though the semi recent price increase has made the app far too expensive to happily use. The roses and premium aren't necessarily, but certainly help.

  • By far the best dating app out there Nov 5, 2019

    This app is one of the best dating apps out there! With most other dating apps there is a multitude of fake profiles and scammers that you match with, on hinge that’s not the case! The difference between Hinge and most other apps is that it’s built for people looking for more than just a hookup, it’s a classier dating app. Compared to other apps you get limited likes (without paying ofc) but in all honesty it’s not a bad thing. It makes you more selective and it really calms you down so you don’t isolate yourself from the people around you to matchmake on an app for hours at a time. Also if you run out of likes and you see a profile you really like you can always send the profile to yourself by sharing it, or the profiles will rotate but you might not be able to see them again for a bit. I didn’t get a hit on my profile on the first day using Hinge but the next day I got three and I’m currently talking a lot to one of them. And guys, women will hit you up on this app too, other reviews are misleading. The woman I’m talking to actually commented and liked me. Another thing about this app: it’s easy to use and it really focuses more on getting to know a person by its mixer questions on your profile. This app also looks clean and seamless, it’s by far one of the best dating apps on the App Store! Hopefully I won’t have to use it again but if I ever need to use a dating app again, Hinge is most definitely my number one choice.

    This is, by far, the class of all the available dating apps. That doesn’t mean it’s going to provide a fairy tail opportunity, or even a fun one, but the way profiles are designed and integrated into the brief response sections makes this a much better option than Tinder, and even Bumble. As others have mentioned in their reviews, squelching the ability to like photos without leaving a substantive comment should be the default. That’s simply too much like Tinder/Facebook and doesn’t really provide anything meaningful for the app. It definitely promotes the type of “drive-by” behavior that’s a scourge on Tinder. Leaving a comment requires forethought about what to say, what kind of tone you want to convey, and engaging with another user’s profile. You’re also much more likely to respond to folks who leave commentary, even if you don’t plan on going on a date, and that’s a very healthy approach compared to other apps. As always, your mileage may vary. If you live in a small place you’re likely going to need to increase the radius, or maybe even take a step toward looking to move somewhere bigger in the future. There is still ghosting, likely related to the feature I mentioned above, but that’s just part of the process. For me, I was fortunate enough to find someone after a few months on Hinge that had me deleting the whole panoply of apps.

  • Best app out there, still can’t get a date Apr 27, 2020

    By Floyd .
    To be fair, I’m not really sure what I’d change. This is probably the best dating app on the market if you have a specific type. I was able to use the filters to find a quality pool of people I would have loved to date. The profile customization is also one of the best out there, you get a good sense of the person’s personality as well as conversation starter prompts that they customize themselves to fit what passions/interests they have. Obviously the fatal flaw here, as a guy, is the polar opposite of the common complaint that women have about this app. They get so many messages from dudes that they can’t sort through them, whereas I got maybe five responses back out of the two or three hundred messages I’ve sent out this past year, and literally not a single message ever sent my way. Either I’m ugly/off-putting, which I’m not ruling out, or this app needs to fix this imbalance somehow. What is the point of being able to curate the perfect pool of dates if no one ever responds to their messages? My luck wasn’t any better with Tinder but at least you could quantify who found you attractive and that was a nice self esteem boost.

    I think you need to ad "body type" as one of the filters, it's quite frustrating to swipe through hundreds of people that I have zero interest in at all. Also extremely infuriating to see the same person pop up over and over. This app is horrible. I see the same people over and over, boosting does absolutely nothing. Hinge should be re named to crooks.

    I put it in for matches within 30 miles and yet see profiles from across the country. Also the standouts were poor as I have to basically pay to send a like to someone who might be compatible. But I keep seeing the same standouts again and again, instead of fresh faces. Not to mention some of the profiles look like they want a good time not a long time. Sorry Hinge, zero for two.

I set my distance at 50 miles to start with as I thought I live in Cumbria so would try and find other people in the area First 20 suggestions all well over 100 miles away. Reduced to 10 miles, still no joy. Age and location filters don't work as for the rest I didn't bother to waste my time Honestly so many dating apps have this issue. Why include them if they don't work It advertises its self as the app that wants to be deleted and I guess it succeeded.

    I've liked this app for a long time, but now whenever I message someone it sends the same message 3+ times. Since that started happening I get fewer replies because a guy that sends 4 messages in a row is probably off-putting to most people. On top of that, I no longer get notifications when someone matches with me. Fix these bugs and it's a 5 star app

  • Great app! Just be patient with matches. It will happen eventually. Jun 4, 2018

    By fibonacci7
    I started using this app last summer. Met an great person and dated for 6 mo. Like other relationships the more you can learn the more you like or don’t. For me the latter. But I’m optimistic. Always am. Just got back on. Put up some great photos I had paid to take and got great responses from some hotties. LISTEN EVERYONE! ITS ALL ABOUT THE PHOTOS! This isn’t rocket science. I like the fact that you only get 10 likes a day. That’s keeps life manageable and I have better things to do then be on this app all evening anyway. The late notifications are a little annoying but so what. They’ll get fixed. I found that Tinder and Match have too much rifraf you need to filter way too much. That's a waste of my time. Bumble is also pretty good. So far Bumble hasn’t appealed to the mega masses. When it does it will be a waste of time like Tinder and Match. But for now Hinge doesn’t have mass appeal but use that to your advantage. It’s better to have less people and appeal to public less because these people will have higher quality ppl then on the apps used by the mass public. In an age of instant gratification, you actually need to go against the grain and delay your gratification a bit. The right person will show up at the right time. Be positive about it and it will happen.

  • Le Sigh, Whatever Y’all Doing...It’s Workin’ Dec 16, 2020

    By Ashnai
    I don’t know how they do it but it works. I have never in my however many years of online/app dating, regardless of the site or platform, been able to meet someone I was compatible with. It’s difficult sorting through, what is essentially lists and lists of people (who sometimes distract you with their pretty faces and not much else), hoping that you find someone who is compatible with you. These new changes that aim to get you off the app, whatever they are, they work. After being on here for a couple/few months, Hinge more and more started to send me men I found attractive and was more likely to have good conversation with. I met a guy that I really like, and we’ve been seeing each other for less than a couple months but I have never met a man who I could talk to for hours on end like this. We did the video calls and the questioning game through Hinge and eventually met up for a social distanced picnic. He seems like the type of guy I’ve been wanting to meet for a while. It’s like Hinge is a close friend who knows what I like and set me up on a blind date. Our non-romantic and romantic compatibility and attraction is kind of insane. So yeah, never thought I’d give five stars to a dating app but I’ve put the app on pause and honestly... I may delete it altogether.

  • Met my match Oct 22, 2019

    By KrazyLowgun
    I’ve tried all of the dating apps, no joke. I’ve gone out on good dates, bad ones, hookups, flings, you name it. But nothing stuck. One day my roommate told me to download hinge because she found it and on other dating apps we both had we’d tend to match with the same people frequently. I downloaded it with no expectations and honestly no real hopes. A couple weeks of harmless flirting later, I get a message from a guy. Nothing new, nothing surprising but I have an interesting feeling about this one. The conversation is good and he seems genuine but I’m dating around, getting a little serious with someone else so he doesn’t get priority but I don’t want to let go either. The other thing ends and now this guy has my full attention, he asks me out and I like him so I go. He turns out to be the sweetest, most wonderful guy that I have ever met, let alone dated. Turns out we’ve got a decent amount in common and we’ve almost crossed paths before but if it wasn’t for Hinge, I never would’ve met the love of my life. It hasn’t quite been a year yet since we started dating but we’ve talked about our future together traveling, marriage, children and I know without a doubt that he’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with. Thank you Hinge for introducing me to my best friend. ❤️

  • Most Compatible? I Don’t Think So Aug 1, 2020

    By fuzzcat94
    Hinge is, all in all, a good app. It has far fewer bugs and glitches than Tinder. It also has a clean and clever design — removing user bios in favor of questions gives you a better insight into who might be a good match — that makes the app, unlike Tinder or Bumble, fun to use. The process of swiping on someone’s profile like in most dating apps is substituted with a unique way of matching with someone on Hinge — you either press ‘X’ to move on to the next person or send a like on something featured in the person’s profile — and it forces you to put more thought into whose profile you might pass on and whose profile you might “like”. Hinge’s biggest problem seems to be its “Most Compatible” feature. Hinge will occasionally send you the profile of someone that their algorithm believes you will be very compatible with. The “Most Compatible” feature has suggested about 8 or 9 different profiles to me, but each time this has happened, I have been very confused. The profiles of the people the algorithm suggested have always been people that don’t share my interests or aren’t the type of person I am interested in. Hinge’s tagline is “designed to be deleted” and I sincerely believe that Hinge wants that experience for its users. But if Hinge’s algorithm can’t even make a good attempt at finding someone that I might be compatible with, the app will always be installed and I will still be searching for someone I truly like.

  • Great foundation, needs work Mar 15, 2019

    By NinjaSlayer88
    So to begin this review I want to point out that Hinge had the generosity of providing me with a 30 day preferred membership, probably as a welcome to the app. Although they in no way made me write a review, I still feel that doing so is fair to reciprocate their generosity. Like others users have mentioned, I’m somewhat missing the value in paying for a preferred membership, because it only works if others have it, in my case women. Since you can only like a few people at a time and review your queue of matches in a limited manner as a free user, if you get a lot of hits on your profile you’re not going to contact them for a while. That being said, if a preferred member had priority in other’s match queue, it would add much more value. Additionally, the app should work towards making sure women actually respond to you once you’ve made contact, because it’s another big issue. Finally, the number of people who were actually similar in my personality and in my league was dwindled so quickly that now it just feeds me whatever profiles it has lying around, and not even a week into the app I’m out of matchable women. As it stands right now, I certainly wouldn’t spend any money on this experience, but given work it could be a truly revolutionary app as it claims. Since I’m a young guy in a big market I would love to continue providing my feedback and working to improve the app if the developers are interested.

  • Great & Effective Service Oct 15, 2020

    By PJC Denver
    I have enjoyed using Hinge especially because of the way it structured a profile to be succinct yet still informative enough. The Hinge application development team did a really good job in striking the balance between the two. The one suggestion I would make is just add an element to the profile that allows the man/woman to indicate the type of relationship they are looking for (friends, short-term relationship/dating, or a long-term relationship). Especially for men, it helps us to know the degree of relationship that a woman is looking for before we devote time and energy to communicating with and pursuing them. I have encountered a couple woman now that weren’t really looking for a dating relationship at all, more just friendship. I did not find this out until conversing with either of them at some length and drilling to the bottom of it. With each of them, part of me thought, “Why is she even on a dating app/site when she has no real intention of dating anyone?”. I know Hinge is a more casual dating service, but yet I wish this information would have been more upfront. Even so, both women have still become good friends and I was still encouraged to meet both of them given the higher quality of person they each are. It’s just better to be as honest and upfront as possible from the beginning and allow for this as much as possible.

  • Decent, but puts you “in a box” Sep 25, 2020

    By andygandyband
    Hinge is awesome in theory. The idea of making interactions with people extend beyond a simple “like” is great because it gives people (mainly men) an opportunity to stand out on their first impression. Unfortunately this innovation is stifled by seemingly worse algorithms for matching people and no major incentive to engage female users (see Bumble) into making or maintaining conversations with the overwhelming number of men that are matching/liking/commenting on their profiles. Another issue I find is the forceful “prompting” that seems to beat myself and others into answering uncomfortable/staged questions that may seem like icebreakers on the surface but in reality gives people that all too familiar feeling of introducing themselves to a group of strangers with “3 fun facts about themselves”. I think this unfortunately has the effect of making everybody using this platform seem nervous and uncomfortable instead of fun and date-able. In general, I’ve also found that the people Hinge suggests to me are seemingly way less compatible or similar to me in comparison to other apps. The overall experience somehow always seems like a “diet soda” version of competitor dating apps, which stinks, because I do really like the platform this app has. It sadly just seems to fail in its execution of introducing me to like-minded people. Let’s hope that changes!

    I guess they were right when they said this app was made to be deleted. I've got my preferences set to women and for some reason I'm being shown men and they're seeing my profile as well. I've done everything I could to try and block this but no success. I can't help but feel like this is a way to bully me into upgrading to the preferred membership. So yeah, definitely ready to delete.

    App has gone extremely downhill. With the advent of the standouts queue most of the people you would be interested in are pay walled behind roses. People will get pulled out of your standard queue and moved to standouts. Have seen duplicates of accounts a lot as well. As a guy it's nearly impossible to get matches just because of statistics. I get about 1-2 matches per week. I don't feel Hinge is trying to help me find a relationship, they're just trying to take my money for false hope.

  • New Standouts feature is bad business Feb 11, 2021

    By LA hopeful
    I understand companies/apps have to make money, but this new standouts feature is honestly kind of insidious. They’re basically choosing people that are well liked and putting them behind a pay wall, because they admit that you won’t see people you see in standouts elsewhere. It costs FOUR DOLLARS to buy one rose. Think of the reality of that math, I would say half the time people don’t even respond to you and then you probably only end up meeting MAYBE half those people in person. If you want to go on just 3 actual dates you’re going to have to pay their $30 price for 12 roses, so not only do you have to pay for a date already you have to pay $10 just to go on that date to begin with. Also, the people who are put in standouts do not get to chose whether they’re put there or not, you don’t have the choice to decide whether people HAVE to pay to send you a like or not. And do those people put in standouts who have to have a rose paid for to talk to them get their own roses in return for the app literally making money off of them? No, you just get unwillingly put behind a pay wall. I understand a subscription type service like boost or whatever other apps use where everyone pays the same price to use the same features for equal access, but this just honestly doesn’t make sense.

  • The algorithm needs some adjusting Jan 27, 2021

    By Chuy Gomez
    The app at its foundation keeps you focused on a small number of people which I value so I can foster better connections with less distractions. And the same goes for the profile; you really can get a sense of a curation and someone’s level of seriousness or play when it comes to dating. The app is well rendered and mostly intuitive. My two stars are for two bits of feedback 1) the toolbar disappears way too frequently without any other button but the X button. If the answer is to needlessly scroll to make it reappear something isn’t right. 2) when I’m out of likes for the day it begins to show me a certain type of person (male for male filters fyi), I’m sure the more popular individuals identified by the “algorithm”, but I have to admit they are all looking quite the same, the same chiseled, abs focused, anglo, type of guy. And this is being connected to your advertising of paying for more likes. You’re telling users they have to pay to like these kinds of people. This harmful imagery and construct is being endorsed as not only the standard of beauty but also untouchable without paying by your algorithm and therefore by you. I can only imagine similar is happening with others combinations of filters. Do better for the current conversation around beauty and self confidence. Adjust your algorithm and your values.
