There's no doubt about the fact that new technologies, including mobile platforms of the likes of Android and iPhone, are making our lives easier in many fields of our daily life. And one of them is picking up a date: although we can continue resorting to the traditional method of meeting the girl or guy of our dreams in a bar, in the park or at university, now there are applications like Tinder that turn out to be much more efficient and practical.
Flirting on your phone had never been so easy.
Why should you use Tinder? Well, because we live in a world in which time is a treasured element. Why waste our time and that of our date on a boring night out at the bar or movies if we already know that we haven't got anything in common? Thanks to the APK of this app (also available for iOS and even PC), everything is much more efficient, being able to choose beforehand those people that appeal to us physically and those that we probably have many more things in common.
How does Tinder work?
How it works couldn't be any easier. Simply download and install the application from Google Play, sign up via Facebook or an email account, type in your name, date of birth, gender, and choose a profile picture. That's the basics, although you can configure more details from your profile, such as the maximum distance to search for possible dates, their age range, and even if you want to be shown men or women (don't get this app mixed up with Grindr, the Gay Tinder, but all sexual orientations are welcome).
Possibly the best and most popular dating app.
From that moment, the app will start to search for possible candidates in your area, showing you their profile pictures and the age of the people you might be interested in. From there on it's up to you to accept or reject the candidates according to whether they appeal to you or not:
- Tap on the profile picture to view more information (Spotify lists, quotes, interests, Instagram account, etc.) or more photos.
- Swipe right to like that person.
- Swipe left to reject that person as a future date.
- Swipe upward to super-like that really hot guy or girl.
- Whenever there's a match (you both like each other) you can start chatting to know each other better.
Using the basic functions of this platform is totally free of charge but if you want to jump the queues and appear in the first position of the candidate lists, becoming a top profile for a certain period of time thanks to a boost, you'll have to pay to access a Tinder Plus premium account.
Which is better? Tinder or Badoo? What about happn?
Well, at the end of the day it's all down to the app on which you feel more comfortable or the one that provides you with what you need to meet your target, whether finding the love of your life or having loads of one-night stands. The truth is that the user opinions about Tinder are great, better than others of the likes of Badoo, happn or lovoo. Over 100 million downloads for Android guarantee that you'll find a date wherever you are: Valencia, Alicante, London, New York or Kuala Lumpur. It's so successful that flirting from a phone is already known as tindering.
