This app was apparently programmed by some amateur who has almost no idea what he is doing. It is SO slow to load for starters, and is one of the few apps on the iPhone that will lose your writing if you home-button away from it to check something else or copy-paste something into what you’ve already written. Oops!
This crappy app on several occasions has also lost contacts I’ve made and that I had been having very nice discussions with. While it’s also possible those people blocked or ‘unmatched’ me for no apparent reason, there is a bizarre phenomenon suggesting otherwise: I sometimes access the same account on two different iPhones, and different people show up in my matches and messages! With one or two being the same people out of about 6 or 8 matches on each! Bizarre! So now I have learned to give out my email address early and ask people to save it in case we get disconnected.
Of course the ultimate indignity is the greediness of this outfit as reflected in their prices, as others have noted. I am not giving them a dime of my money until and unless they drop their greedy greedy prices down to 10 or 20% of what they are now, screw their version of parasitic capitalism! There are PLENTY of venues online to meet people and this crappy app is not essential to the process!
All was going pretty well on this app. However, about five days into having it, disaster struck. I wasn’t getting messages anymore, I was getting next to no likes, and I’ve been told that people I matched with can no longer find my account. The app was telling me there was nobody in my area, and I stopped getting any notifications.
Of course, I consulted the service team. They were downright useless. They checked my account maybe five times? The first time did absolutely nothing. The lady checked my account and said “nothing appears to be wrong, please contact us if the problem persists and we’ll investigate”. So I did. The next person wrote a response that was nearly a word for word copy of the first! My account was working properly for about an hour after that. Then it continued with the same issues. This happened again three more times.
I’d assume that they did something if the account was working right after they “looked into it”. However, having paid for gold, I’m feeling quite ripped off. I paid for a months worth of gold and got five days, and crappy customer service! The same responses signed with different names, and no regard for the fact is given money to this app. Disgusting. You’d expect more from such a commonly known app.
Ok so I downloaded tinder last week and to my surprise got 32 likes and 10 matches with 2 who super liked me on the first day, the second day followed with some likes and matches this continued for a couple days and thought this was great. However the curiosity got the better of me and wanted to see who liked me so I upgraded to tinder gold, for $43.99 AUD, so my likes could be revealed, I thought this is cool, anyway I only liked about 3 of 32 likes. Since I upgraded to tinder gold I have had not 1 like or match, and since I have unlimited swipes, I’ve swiped on thousands of potential matches with nothing. I’ve even super liked girls who I normally wouldn’t go for to test it out and nothing. I am not a ugly guy so I find something not right about this. I will be seeking legal advice and contacting the ombudsman and the department of fair trading, as I feel like I have been deceived, and ripped off, because as soon as I spent $43.99 everything dried up.. hmmm
So do yourself a favour DO NOT download tinder, it is a complete waste of time and money, or if you have already downloaded it, try not to spend money on tinder gold, it is completely useless besides the unlimited swipes and 5 super likes.
In less than 24 hours I was mysteriously banned. I contacted Tinder Support who trotted our the standard lines even though I clearly stated how I didn’t violate the TOS and gave specific examples of things that may be flagged by a (badly programmed) bot but on human review absolutely would show I did nothing wrong.
So Tinder have stolen money from me and made me feel like some creep when within a 5 minute Twitter and Google search found dozens of users asking why people who have actively done wrong to people are STILL on the platform.
Utterly awful experience that will be getting an ACCC complaint
Tinder is what it is yes, but I saw in a tech news article that you are planning to add and release a video chat function - all I wanted to say is PLEASE DO NOT!! It’s just unnecessary , not part of dating and it makes more sense for users to connect first and then they can share their video chat details with each other and go elsewhere. Although Tinder is a compulsive addiction for some , so you won’t lose users anyway...
But yeah, I wouldn’t want the thousands of matches to start video calling me as well as pestering me for anti-love reasons etc . Goddamn. I might have to abort if that function comes out.... :,(
Maybe you’ll consider these comments, mm or maybe not ♀️ oh well .
This is an absolute heap of garbage designed by a group of actual idiots. Here’s how it actually works: you won’t get a single match unless you pay for them. They hide your ‘likes’ until you subscribe to Tinder Gold. This company needs to suffer a class-action lawsuit before they even THINK of delivering a viable product. Don’t waste your time, use Bumble, OkCupid, Hinge, literally anything else as they are all far superior. I get multiple matches and atleast one date a week from the other three. Tinder works like a poker machine: zero value to anyone, a stain on society and the house always wins.
i’ve been using tinder for a while and i have seen manyyyyyy lude and semi naked photos on people profiles. i uploaded a picture that was not nearly as revealing as some that i saw and i got banned. i emailed customer service and nothing. pointless app that will ban u for no reason then tell u that it is what it is.
so let me tell u tinder, all my friends deleted the app and won’t waste their time. and for my banned account, ban it all u want. i’m still here and i’ll just use a better dating app than this piece of shit.
Opened Tinder after months of exclusively using Hinge use to see if it was as bad as I remembered it... the short answer is yes - it was.
Issues: laggy, slow to load, rubbish quality of men/ profiles. Not really sure why I haven’t deleted this yet.
Also - please stop telling me “oops! You missed a match!” when I swipe left on someone. If I swiped left on them IT ISN’T A MATCH because I am clearly not interested.
Tinder you better lift your game. It’s sink or swim with Hinge and Bumble around now.
I actually liked tinder especially their new travel feature. It’s been about 2weeks since I have last used the app and I decided to open it today, when I opened the app I had discovered that I had been banned. I know I haven’t done anything wrong on the app that violates their guidelines. Just to make things worse, there is no time limit for being banned because it’s set for life. They won’t even allow you to contact them about the subject so I can get the account back!
i keep getting notifications from matches saying i have a message from them but when i go to respond there’s no message ?? just whatever my last message was. only when i deleted and re-dowloanded the app did the messages show up (after taking about 20 minutes to load in all my matches) but this keeps happening after i respond, i don’t have the time or patience to keep re-downloading the app just to see someone’s response. fix this asap or i’m moving to bumble lol
