Description

HINGE, DESIGNED TO BE DELETED Hinge is the dating app for people who want to get off dating apps. And it’s working. Currently, 3 out of 4 first dates lead to second dates, we’re the #1 mobile-first dating app mentioned in the New York Times wedding section, and we’re the fastest growing dating app in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. THE BUZZ ABOUT HINGE “Hinge’s CEO says a good dating app relies on vulnerability, not algorithms.” - Washington Post "Hinge is the first dating app to actually measure real-world success" - TechCrunch “A great option for those fed up with temporary love.” -TheNextWeb HOW WE GET YOU OFF HINGE In today’s digital world, singles are so busy matching that they’re not actually connecting, in person, where it counts. Hinge is on a mission to change that. So we built an app that’s designed to be deleted. * We quickly learn your type. You'll only be introduced to the best people for you. * We give you a sense of someone’s personality. You'll get to know potential dates through their unique answers to prompts, and personal information like religion, height, and politics. * We make it easy to start a conversation. Every match begins by someone liking or commenting on a specific part of your profile. * We ask how your dates are going. After exchanging phone numbers with a Match, we’ll follow up to hear how your date went so we can make better recommendations in the future. The app is free to use. Members looking to see who likes them, set advanced preferences, or access Hinge Experts can upgrade to a Preferred Membership.

    Nothing ever loads (at least for this version). Hopefully they update it soon
  • Too many inactive profiles

    By deltasnakes123
    I had a great time using Hinge the first couple months in but the matches have been pretty slow so far. There are too many inactive profiles on the app, which leads to wasted likes and a low chance of connecting with a person. The algorithm needs to be revamped such as showing the people only active on the app in a week time frame.
  • Terrible app

    By Lesbianchick134
    This app is very money hungry. You can like about five people a day and then they ask you to make a membership. You can get more likes than that on tinder. Deleted and don’t recommend
  • Mostly good - needs a few upgrades

    Would be nice for people to indicate what type of relationship they are looking for. And to be able to send pics in chat. But otherwise, great app.
  • TOO MANY FAKE PROFILES!!!!

    By DADE_305
    YOU GUYS NEED TO UPDATE THE APP WHERE FROM TIME TO TIME THE USER CONFIRMS WHO THEY ARE BY SUBMITTING A LIVE PHOTO THAT MATCHES THE PROFILES PICTURES THAT WERE UPLOADED. PLATFORMS SUCH AS UBER AND EVEN BUMBLE EVEN DO THIS TO AVOID SOMEONE IMPERSONATING ANOTHER PERSON. DELETED APP NOT BECAUSE I’VE FOUND “THE ONE” BUT BECAUSE THERE ARE COUNTLESS PAGES THAT ARE NOTHING BUT SPAM AND FAKE PICTURES AND TAKES AWAY THE POINT OF EVEN BEING ON.

    Don’t use eharmony. Don’t use bumble. Don’t use Christian mingle. Don’t use Christian dating. This app is the best of them all. Fair price. Really unique method for messaging people. I’m very pleased with this app.

    I wish you had a backtrack feature that will allow a person to retrieve a mistaken “ X “
  • Photos don’t load - terrible support

    By jeftay
    This app worked for a while, but now the photos don’t load for all the profiles, which kinda makes the app useless. I’ve repeatedly contacted support and have gotten no response, in spite of the fact that I’m a premium subscriber. Waste of money.

    Now that Hinge has been transformed into another MG -Carrot Dangling Pinterest App, these times will be and should be the lowest this genre can sink. It cannot sink any lower. The entire dating app developers collectively and across the board, have nothing left to contribute to the restoration of trust and a possibility. These companies need to go because they do nothing for the genre at all. No security, no real people at all and I for one will be forever grateful to all idiots that sold out to MatchGroup as a coder when you see a door open this wide and you are actually in tune to your app, you can’t help but incorporate changes. Destroying these apps’ ability to profit from the private sector is my salivating wet dream. I will Bring down POF, OKC, Bumble, TINDER, Match, Hinge everything Match Group then I will go after the rest one by one until they are all stomped out as I draft and submit proposed regulations that will force define these particular apps as fantasy and make believe forcing them through federal regulations to be placed in another category in the App Store. Therefor leaving you with an app company that listens, pays attention and cares about Its users. Thank you all for being the definition of delete. Of course that will get blocked and will take some time and that’s when the class action lawsuit begins. Please document all bots, fake profiles for harvest and that should be enough to petition a congressional hearing where these companies have to explain themselves as we implement new reforms that will reduce them to bankruptcy status. So today we look towards a new era and just have to hold on until we can slay the lizards of the genre. Thank you for walking us in!
  • Horrible app I’ve ever seen

    1
    By Stupid Irina
    I was using this app for 6 months but I started having login issue when I was out of town. I had to go outside the US for vacation then I couldn’t login anymore. I messaged customer services many times to let them know my problems but THEY HAVE NEVER REPLIED TO ME!!! They have never fixed my issue and it’s been almost 1 year!!! When I had the same problem on the other apps, their customer services helped me immediately. I’m very disappointed in hinge customer services they have to explain to me what happened to my account at least!!! Hinge said “Email us” through review. And they said they also take care of me immediately. I already contacted them 100 times but they’ve keep saying “we are still working on it “ Its been already 1 year.They can’t fix it for 1 year!? This is the worst app I’ve ever used!!!
  • Trying to reactivate, keeps on saying “Facebook login error”

    By thhhjjkkkkd
    Great app initially. Now I am trying to reactivate and it will not let me go through my Facebook login. I deleted and redownoaded both hinge and Facebook. I have reset network settings. Nothing works. I liked it initially but why won’t you let me get my profile back Hinge?
  • Honest opinion (3 months in)

    1
    By StrayX09
    The truth about this app is that it feels like a ghost town here, possibly 83% of all profiles here are abandoned or fake. I never used the payed version of this app and I’m not interested(doubling a 0 still equals 0). It’s ridiculous how many wasted likes and comments I’ve spent every other day(on a 3 month scale) with a 100% accuracy in not talking to anyone yet. Now sometimes I just open this app when I’m looking to just waste time and likes. I know this app was made to delete but maybe perhaps this should have a system that wipes out ppl who’ve deleted/don’t use the app.
  • Unmatching too easy

    2
    By Nomalos
    I like the way this app navigates, however one major flaw is when you match with somebody, it’s extremely easy to accidentally un-match with them, and if that happens, they are gone forever. All it takes is hitting one button marked “X”, and poof they are disappeared. No “are you sure you want to un-match” prompt, no shaking the phone and it magically comes back, they are gone. Hinges official response to this right now is “Un-matching is a permanent action. If you un-match someone, you won't be able to talk to that match again.” Of course I am mad because I accidentally unmatched somebody who I was genuinely interested in. Lame feature imo for an app meant to connect people.
  • Featured Match Fail?

    2
    By Ets5017
    Not sure how long I’ve had the app for but I think at least for a year. I like some of the layout differences from other dating apps and ability to send an initial message with a like. A frequent annoyance however, is the featured match where Hinge claims they’re matching you up with someone based on your activity. I’m a moderately active guy with a slim build and it’s something I look for in a date among many other things, and my swipes definitely reflect that. Nevertheless time after time my featured matches are with people who - let’s say are very much not in that category. The featured match is easily dismissed but it makes me wonder about how well the rest of the app is functions.
  • Daily like limit ruins experience

    2
    By ariellelh
    I used Hinge before and was very successful. I met a wonderful guy and had a great relationship for several months. When I came back to the app they had instilled a daily like limit. The limit is extremely low (3-5) per day. It makes the app utterly useless. It’s a cheap way to try to force users to get a paid account. I don’t find the matches to be much better than Bumble. It’s very disappointing and really ruins the experience. A likes limit is fine but the number it allows is absurdly low.
  • Pictures don’t load half the time

    Pictures don’t load half the time
  • Major flaw

    1
    By icharbs
    The app seems to forget when I’ve decided that I do not want to match with a woman. It has been showing me the same women I’ve said no to now more than 3 times. I don’t want to use the app anymore because I’ll open it to see faces (kind souls I’m sure) I’ve rejected multiple times already. Why won’t the app register that?
  • Not much different than other dating apps.

    2
    By Asdfgghiopeuw
    Even though I set my age preferences to roughly 30-45 I was overwhelming matched with men who were 19-23 or over 50. When I did get matches it was the same as all other dating apps, no one replied to messages. This app seemed promising, but after several months and only two dates that were both disappointing and I’m over it. Time to delete Hinge.

    Im not sure what algorithm you use for compatibility but matching a conservative christian with an atheist is the opposite of compatible......literally all of my “compatibles” are the last people Id ever date.

    So I met this guy and I really liked him! We were only talking for a day until it said this app is ment to be deleted and wouldn’t let me get back in saying that something went wrong now I’m sad because I can’t talk to the guy!
  • I’m dying alone

    By MitchAPalooza52
    I don’t blame the app really. It’s just frustrating that girls always end up ghosting me even though they say they’d be interested in going on a date
  • Alright so far

    By Dude looking for love
    Nice app. Like the concept of everyone looking for a relationship. Wish getting likes on here was as easy as bumble.
  • Some frustrating features

    3
    By vickidoodlebug
    I really like this app- the only thing that gets really frustrating is the “neighborhood” feature. It’s near impossible to tell where someone lives if all it says is “downtown” or “west end”. I would love it if you could at least click the neighborhood name, and view a pop-up if a map where that neighborhood is. I sometimes have no idea if the person is even in the same state as I am!! Very confusing. Also, I would rather scroll past an ad every 10 people than pay for a membership.other than that, the app is pretty decent and I prefer it over POF at the very least.

    It would be cool if you showed interracial dating that wasn’t constantly a black guy with a white girl. Literally 100% of your ads are just that.
  • Not great

    2
    By Neverchangemenu
    Too many profiles of guys in “open relationships” and no way of filtering that out... Also, after the 30 day free premium membership I found I see only people with qualities I had filtered out with premium membership. I guess this is a way of them getting you to want to go back and now pay for a premium membership? Scam.

    It was working fine for 5 months, and then all of a sudden it’s logged me out and now it’s as if I never had an account. Is there something you guys can do for me? Who should I contact to see if I can get my account back?

    I love the app and the women are really awesome and I haven’t found and spam accounts yet and it’s a slow pace dating app. But great things come to those who wait. I will recommend this app to a lot of my friends. I got a date in two days and I’m really excited about it because we seem good together. I can tell that the creators of the app really care about users and I!!! 10/10
  • Disappointed

    By hhjfffgbbjjyy
    I was having fun on the app until I was suddenly logged out due to an “age restriction” even though I’m over 18 years of age. I’ve emailed support a few times with no response.
  • Messages not functional for 4 days now

    By mariam7855
    App wasn’t the most reliable in past but nothing major until last week, I am unable to send messages and get notifications and a message preview from those I’ve received but they don’t show up once I’m in the actual app. I’ve deleted and reinstalled, which only wiped out ALL of my previous conversations, never to be restored. I’ve reached out to support and the issue has yet to be resolved. I wouldn’t care all that much but this problem makes me look like a non -responsive flake to people trying to communicate with me, thus ruining the entire purpose of the app.
  • Not working after update !!

    1
    By axsjaxs
    The app has stopped sending messages. It started just sending banners that a message was received without showing on the app. Now no messages at all. Matching and invitations to message work but not actual messages. When you follow customer service advice and re download app, all message history is lost.
  • Better than Tinder and Bumble

    5
    By Khashiche
    I love this app! It is easy to use and pretty simple. You are able to see pictures of potential matches and what they are like by their answers to questions on their profile. If you like the other person’s picture or how they responded to a question/statement on their profile, you can send that you liked it with a comment. You can also see who likes you, and you don’t have to pay to see who likes you! I am not tempted to buy the upgraded version. Great app and much better than Tinder! The people on here put a lot more thought into their profile and meeting new people.
  • Has potential to be great

    2
    By SD-less
    The good: 1. The ability to comment on individual section and photos is smart. 2. Allowing a user to try out a premium account. The bad: Users select their location without any gps verification. So many accounts are in west Africa trolling for victims in the US. The ugly: In my experience there are approximately 100 fake accounts for every real person. It causes me a ton of frustration and wastes my time. Some type of authentication process needs to be implemented. I would be willing to invest money on Hinge if they reduced the number of fake accounts.
  • Amazing dating service

    5
    By anon_fithekswi1$7;
    I have used several dating apps over the past couple years with really spotty success. Hinge has improved all the things I hate about other dating apps: 1) other dating apps foster a gambler’s mentality making you wonder when you are going to get you next match. Sometimes they even let you see a queue of matches that you somehow can never match with unless you pay. Hinge instantly allows you to see people who have liked you so you don’t feel like you are missing out by not constantly swiping on the app. 2) hinge doesn’t have any annoying ads that are never going to convince me to buy products 3) hinge limits the number of matches that I can see in a day, so it prevents me from becoming my own worst enemy and falling into a trap of wondering whether something better is out there. I also don’t waste hours swiping on profiles. It sounds silly but hinge does feel more about creating s connection rather than just swiping through a meat gallery 4) hinge uses prompts to help you create a profile so you don’t have to find something stupid or clever to open up the conversation. More often than not I feel like I can find common ground rather than just taking a shot in the dark. 5) I think Hinge is tailoring the profiles o see to my interests, is showing my profile to girls who are likely to be interested in me, or both. I have a MUCH higher match rate on Hinge than I do on the other dating apps with the exact same profile photos and similar bio information. The only way I can explain this is if Hinge is somehow zoning in on girls I like who are also going to like me. For example, I’m 6”2’ and I’ve noticed that the vast majority of the girls I see on Hinge are tall, which is nice so I don’t get scoliosis trying to kiss them. In closing, I’ve been on Hinge for four days and have had several great conversations and set up a few dates. I really do think the creators of Hinge want you to get off the app and they have created the perfect app to do that. I never knew a dating app could be so good. Don’t waste your time with other apps!

  • Met My Soul Mate - Deleted App

    5
    By Joe Gannon
    After being on this app for a few months I gave up on it for a bit, then my mentor asked me how my love life was. I responded “Same as it has been the past few months, dead.” He told me I had one assignment: go find a woman. The next day I matched with her. We connected on every single level immediately. We just had our first in person date after chatting for over a week via text and on the phone... like people used to do in the 90s. We’re both smitten and have deleted the app, as is the goal. Thank you Hinge! We love you!

  • One of the worst dating apps

    1
    By DudeItsExpensive
    This is one of the worst dating apps which has failed to improve in the age of productization. The same profiles keep on coming even though you have rejected million times.And the folks on the other side have left the bay.Thus,you do not get any hits. Seems the match base or customer base has shrunk a lot.Waste of time & money. I am feeling that all the dating apps are a scam.But beware of this one, more on the scammer side , than the others.

  • True opinion

    2
    By Alexc251370
    I gave hinge a sold 8 months. No different then tinder other than filters(ethnicity, etc) and longer match periods. Not enough women in my area also could be the problem and respond rate is probably a 8%. They need to creat invectives for people to talk more on this app and many others. Matching and talking are two different things. This apps did get me two good dates, but never led to much due to distance being a factor that hinge hasn’t seem to get the handle on on my area. Overall it’s decent better respond rate on Tinder, hinge just takes longer to match and people are usually not close to me (even after using filters with dealbreaker on).

    I’m Having trouble logging in. The code is never sent to my phone and I’ve followed all the steps recommended. This happened ever since the new upgrade. Other than that, the app is ok. But it gets one star because of this inconvenience.
  • Clean it out

    3
    By QueenCarmen
    Lots of inactive profiles. Many guys that have their Instagram linked to their profiles are shown to be in current relationships, some have even just gotten married. Their profiles were probably never shut down, so this just goes to show how many people are matching but not getting responses because they’re trying to connect with ridiculously old profiles. There should be some sort of system that sweeps profiles after like 2 months of being inactive. It’s kind of a waste
  • Scammer central

    1
    By holla919
    First a positive... they were very responsive when I complained about a registered sex offender. Negative... there are a TON of scammers on here. I don’t get it, but for every real person I’ve matched and text with, there were at least three matches that it didn’t take long to figure out we’re not real profiles. It’s easy to spot when you start conversing and English is clearly not their first language, yet they claim to have been born and raised in Maine. I had one man pretend to be in the military overseas and after a few weeks of texting, he asked me to send him gift cards.... yeah. I’ve deleted the app.
