This app’s greatest downfall is just how incredibly thirsty the owners are for money. They exploit being such a large dating platform to wring every cent possible out of you. There is no feature that hasn’t been monetised, as even the act of swiping is limited until you pay for more.
The features are all perfectly fair, and if even suggest that if they were included in some of the premium subscriptions, it may even offer fair value for money. But, the fact you can pay for a premium service, only to then still be asked to fork out for even more features is absurdly greedy.
The other major downfall of the app is the discovery algorithm. Rather than create a service that prioritises users getting good matches that they’re satisfied with, the developers realise they’ll earn far more money by keeping you engaged with the app for longer and swiping more often. This is understandable from a business model, but it means a lot of potential matches never even get the chance to occur.
The final issue is with the UI, which has a habit of lagging or even crashing and is occasionally glitchy, which I’ve seen result in lost message conversations. It’s also impossibly intrusive with notifications, promoting boosts times (another paid feature), and in-app banner notifications every time you open chat to enable video conferencing. Leaving users wishing they’d just go away and stop shameless grabbing for money!
The only redeeming features of the app are a simple system with a decent range of features (albeit hugely overpriced), and a large user base, giving it clear superiority of diversity compared to other dating apps.
I’ve just discovered your system works on paying more depending on your preference, gender, age and location coming into a factor. Which is discrimination based on personal factors. You guys were good when you first rolled out everyone had a good time, despite banning me heaps of times for doing absolute nothing or saying goodnight to my matches ( I can see I’m not the only one) and then have the audacity of not providing a refund or respond to customer service. Now you guys are money grabbing thieves with Artifical intelligence (or low IQ customer service behind the screens) running the show and ruining the concept. I also noticed you ignored everyone upset at the unfair banning and pricing and don’t offer them a solution but reply to people who have “no matches”. People have been genuinely banned unfairly.
I was met one person. When I met him, He touched my iPhone secretly and erased his number and tracked everything.
And he said "contact to me again." He so bad and disgusting. Why too many disgusting and strange people ? Almost they want to Onenight stand.
At first, they acted as if they were going to be serious, but they were all disgusting people with masks on.
Seriously There are too many demons here, regardless of appearance or occupation.
I'm not the only one who's been through it. My friends also have many bad experiences. To prevent this from happening, please write down more detailed personal information for men so that they can join Tinder. There are so many people who do bad things. Cus they don't need write their detail information.
I have used this app on and off over the years and whilst it has never been the greatest, it seems to have a lot more people on it.
Just recently I was banned for no reason though and after trying to contact Tinder, I got a generic response and that they couldn’t help me.
I have done NOTHING wrong and I have NOT violated their user terms or anything like that, so I’m very confused why this happened.
I’ve heard other people have had the same issue, so is this a common thing now, Tinder? Banning people for the fun of it? Surely you can give us a reason as to why you’ve done this to our account? You want people to like you and your app, yet when it comes to something like this you literally just kick us out with no explanation... pathetic.
You now get messages from advertisers directly in your inbox!
They also don’t warn you that using Swipe Night will cause the ap to:
- begin ignoring your distance preferences
- begin ignoring your age preferences
- make it harder to browse relevant matches by hiding their helpful info behind swipe night info
- change the UI (which looks worse, and bugs in some places)
- and you can’t reverse these
I contacted support and they offered irrelevant suggestions.
When I’m provided irrelevant messages, matches, information about those matches, and even support it makes me feel like my time is being wasted.
I don’t care if there’s less content. I’d rather only read relevant content.
I am a regular user of Tinder. What I hate is the fact that for the amount of money I’m paying for membership, customer support staff don’t hesitate to take your money and then not reply.
I constantly get issues with this annoying “would you like to video chat with this person”. I keep pressing no and then it freezes my app. I constantly have to log in again each time it pops in, so I can barely use it. I constantly messaged the support staff 6 times the last two mo the and no reply. Don’t know if this is a joke, but for me to pay something that barely works is so unhelpful. I hope this goes to the app developer so the staff are trained into mitigating these errors.
I have been using tinder for a couple of years now. On and off.
I normally have my card hidden during the day while I’m at work, and at night when I’m home I’ll go on, make my card visible and have a few swipes here and there. My account apparently got banned. I don’t have any inappropriate photos or messages. I was barely even on the app. I emailed tinder and all I got back was saying that my account violates the terms and conditions of the app. I would like to know their reasons for blocking my account? Because there is thousands of other users who are in the same boat as me and don’t have a reason as to why? Or what they so called did.
After using this account for 5 years with same profile, premium account with 1 year subscriber, out of sudden I woke up with my account banned. I read the policies like 20 times and still don’t know what happened or why. I emailed multiple times to find out at least why, never a reply back. Only once a standard reply that I broken community standards. Which are? Not sure.
I want my refund back for the remaining year! Or I will seek advices of legal actions. Seems this company don’t give a damn about loyal long term customers and ready to steal your money too...
Many years ago tinder wasn’t controlled by money hungry people.. you wouldn’t have to spend money to match with people, but now as soon as you create an account you will get matches for the first few days and then after that it’ll be zero.. if you’re a girl, this concept doesn’t apply to you and you’ll get infinite matches. They know guys will spend and waste their money so that’s why they target men. I find it disgusting that the only way to meet new people is to spend money. All the other dating/hook-up apps are like this
Watched the trailer for swipe night and it seemed interesting. A few choices into the story though and I noticed the way to select your choice is bad/doesn’t work properly. It demonstrates a swipe, so I swipe the direction of my choices, but it chose the other ones! Didn’t even finish it, since the results would have been not what I wanted. There should have been a clear guide to the swipe night released before the event, and these problems wouldn’t happen. No way to restart the episode.
