It does this by having you answer a bunch of questions through a Tinder-like interface. Moreover, people can message you only if you’ve matched, so no unsolicited “greetings” from someone you would never match with.
You can see what sort of relationship people are looking for, and while that doesn’t sound that revolutionary, it reflects the fact that Hinge carries more of a dating expectation than a just-hooking-up expectation à la Tinder.
The app also only plays clips of songs and they occasionally stall, which is annoying, especially when someone has a longer profile and a good song selection.
Possibly our biggest complaint with Tastebuds, though, is that it is very easy to accidentally skip someone you didn’t mean to skip.
It’s not an overly complicated app, but it does take a few minutes to get used to.
Compared to a few years ago there’s quite a few apps out there for us now.
Okay, it’s actually a lot like Tinder, but with a few key differences that make it superior.
Interface-wise, it looks like Tinder’s younger sister. This makes answering questions far easier and less time consuming, not to mention more fun.
You can “like” a person if interested, and if not, simply “skip” them.
You can even send a song or message users before or after they match with you. The user interface is clean and simple, and creating your profile is uncomplicated, allowing you to use both Facebook and non-Facebook photos.
Even if profiles are a bit long, they’re never cumbersome and only include what you actually filled out.
Furthermore, because of the friends-of-friends connection, you’re less likely to run across inappropriate photos. You can only add photos of yourself from Facebook or Instagram, though, which is kind of limiting if you’re not very active on either.
Also, while the friends-of-friends concept has a lot of benefits, it’s also restricting.
