The Tinder app no longer requires you to have a Facebook account in order to enable it, but you do have to be older than 18.
Once enabled, you can set up a concise profile that consists of a 500-character bio and up to six images (we suggest always including a photo).
You also have to tap on a user’s small image to see a larger version and the person’s profile, which is simply too large for an app.
It might work on a dating website where that much information would presumably be read on a larger screen, but it’s overkill on an app, and the amount of scrolling required makes it annoying to access.
But most of the time, the Tinder experience will consist of flicking through profiles like channels on the television.
Tinder actually has one of the best user interfaces of any dating app around.
Discovery settings allow other users to find you if desired and set a few preferences regarding who you see. You can also choose to swipe right (to like them), left (to pass), or up if you want to use one of your precious “super likes” to show them you really like them.
If you and another person have both swiped right on one another, a screen will appear showing that you’ve matched and inviting you to send them a message.
