Evaluate photos of nearby users and meet your matches
Filling out online dating profiles is hard, and meeting people in real life is even harder. The dating world's been waiting for an app like Tinder, which boils the whole sordid process of attraction down to its bare essentials.
Scroll through photos of other users, and use your snap judgement to decide whether you like them or not. It's possible to see a handful of further photos if they've chosen to provide them, the user's age, and a very brief profile (usually no more than a sentence). Swipe them to the left and they're rejected forever; swipe them to the right and they go on your accepted list. If they right-swipe your image as well, the app will inform you of the connection and enable in-app messaging between the two of you.
Tinder's no-nonsense approach to attraction neatly solves a few pressing problems in the online dating world. In the end, no matter how eloquent of a profile you write, people who message you tend to do so because they're attracted to your photos - so why not simplify the process to its one crucial element? It also ensures that you're never wasting your time being contacted by folks you're uninterested in yourself. You'll have to link Tinder to your Facebook account, but the app is discreet about the association. It will never post anything to your feed, and it uses the information you have listed regarding your friends and interests to show you the most relevant profiles.
One major potential drawback of Tinder has to do with location. If you live in a major metropolitan area in the US or Europe, the app may already be popular enough that you have an interesting pool to draw from. If not, however, you'll burn through your possible matches like wildfire, and the app becomes a bit useless. The messaging system is also on the slow and buggy side, but it's pretty easy to just take the next step and exchange numbers with matches you enjoy.
Give Tinder a go if you're looking to get connected with new people in a streamlined, efficient way. It can't hurt, and you just never know who you might meet.
Every time you open Tinder, you’ll immediately see new, interesting people nearby, along with friends or interests you have in common. Swipe right to like or left to pass on each person’s profile. All swipes are anonymous. No one will ever know you’ve passed on their profile. Only once you’ve both swiped right on each other will your newfound match be revealed. Get to know your match directly in Tinder by using our built-in, safe and private chat.
See why millions of users spanning every country around the world love Tinder. A single swipe can change your life!

Some lists where this application appears: Reviewed by Anna Grace.
"Failed to add pic, try again", i have cleared cache, reset, uninstalled you name it and it still won't upload any photos. It worked an hour ago!
latest update solves this "no pictures were found" issue, so now app seems to be ok. Browsing through multiple photos of same users could be improved though, as sometimes when doubletapping to minimize, it swipes a user to the left.
I will change my rating as soon as someone can tell me how to enter without Facebook
its fun so far
You have to pay 10 dollars a month now wth
I've actually have met some really cool guys. I have been on some good dates and some horrible lol! But I think that would happen no matter what dating site used. I like that the only way someone gets my # is if I give it to them otherwise I can just unmatch and they can no longer contact me. I'm having fun and it's a great way to meet people locally. Who knows I might just meet someone that click
They just patched it. Now its great. I was having trouble with photos but now its perfect! Everything works great. Although I still wish there weren't limits.
