As successful as it is at forming long-distance relationships and successful marriages, Tinder has long been accused of changing dating into some form of hookup game.
But it’s the king of the dating hill for a reason and the first port-of-call for many daters.
You can still choose to create a profile using your Facebook profile if you want.
You can also link your Tinder account to your Instagram, and include info about your employer and/or school. You can tap on the photo to see additional information regarding the person and Facebook friends you share (if you’re logged in through your Facebook account).
You can also earn “beans” that allow for extra app functions, either by purchasing them outright, recommending the app to your friends, or logging in on consecutive days.Ok Cupid has as many downsides as Tinder, and fewer positive ones, with the exception of learning a lot more about your potential dating partners.The interface is extremely clunky and the photos are a little small.All options, including those for accessing the settings and viewing profiles, are located in a slide-out menu.To browse for someone you like, you merely tap the “matches” option, which, oddly, does not show you the people you’ve matched with but rather the people you could potentially match with.
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.
