You can dip in to the App for free and have limited access, though you have options that give you different access levels which for Tinder Gold is £27.99.
I was given a discount rate of 50% which I took advantage of but it charged the full price. The error was picked up by Tinder who emailed and offered a complimentary month as a way to say sorry.
Trying to contact Tinder is impossible which has seriously soured my experience as I wanted to point out following their admission of error that as I had paid for a discounted rate and paid full price that it should run for two months with the third month being the complimentary month.
If you’re happy to use the facility for just a bit of fun then it will work for you. However, if you have at the very least committed for a months Tinder Gold you have to question the integrity of it.
When posting profile pictures of yourself they are validated and then show up on your profile, though I have noticed some strange pictures which aren’t necessarily face/full body clothed pictures.
If you are lucky to get a MATCH trying to strike up a conversation is likely to be more successful talking to a mirror. And as such I guess that it definitely isn’t the environment to find that significant other or even strike up any form of relationships but then again if you cannot contact Tinder with a question how would you expect anyone else to bother?
I’ve used tinder a fair bit over the years and they just get worse or sleazier over time with their anti consumer practices, fake likes and withholding of likes. As well as in your face advertisements(which doesn’t make sense, if you’re a paid app why have ads?) anyway, every now and again you’ll have a change of heart and want a fresh start. You’ll go to delete your account and try to start anew. Just to realise your account doesn’t pop up. I know it’s to avoid the usage of the free week boost(which barely works) at most you get 20 likes and maybe 2-3 of them are matches(subjective experience). I left the app for a few days and realised I had gotten no likes AT ALL, and if you know tinder you’ll at least have one gold star(like). So I was unsure if I’d been banned or something, I try to reset my account again to experiment just to realise there’s an “error” message which is preventing me from deleting my account. All I wanted was a genuine restart/refresh, restarting your account isn’t against the rules but hey greedy corpos don’t care. Writing this review is like pissing in the wind. They don’t even have a support email or anything. And guess how long Tinders been in the game. Too long to not have a help/support line is how long.
UPDATE : tinder is now holding my account hostage, can’t even delete it to just go about my business. Keep getting error messages.
I’ve used tinder for probably a month now. The first few days I had it I was super happy to see that I’ve received 20+ likes in those day... then the next week came along and for days on end I ended up with no new likes, no matches... nothing. I decided to google to see if anyone had the same issue and apparently it’s something to do about being soft-banned? I don’t disrespect any girl on the app nor do I ignore messages or swipe right every single time. I message first, politely, I scan profiles and read bios to see if I’m interested in the girl and my profile is friendly with no rude photos so how can I be thrown to the bottom of the swipe list for girls? I deleted my account and started again and wouldn’t you know, my first few days I got so many likes and then it happened again where my account died. Can I have an explanation? I paid for tinder plus and I’m getting nothing out of it as Im not being seen by anyone
It’s like the developers actively hate you. The app permanently bugs out like it was designed in 2013: matches from months ago suddenly pop up, messages don’t sent, and woe betide you if you don’t have notifications set up. The worst thing is the support: I logged in on a desktop and found that loads of matches loaded that hadn’t on a mobile. Tinder’s response? Nothing. They didn’t offer a refund or even acknowledge the problem and ask for screenshots. This company deserves to fail because of how terribly it treats its users. And the date night video? Dread to think how many millions that cost: why didn’t they just improve the user experience? Avoid: use Hinge. Of course, Tinder is so ubiquitous and monopolistic they don’t care but I hope every app developer is ashamed of themselves.
Tinder performs terribly. It’s so slow to load up between screens, I often have to close and restart the app or it does it for me by crashing on the regular.
Today they introduced a Tinder splash page when you open the app, timed the app from the point that it was opened to the point it presented me with people to swipe, 15 seconds... no app in this day and age should take so long for you to use.
My phone is an iPhone 11 Pro Max, and although I’m positive the app taking so long isn’t solely dependent on the power of your phone, I dread to think how older phones are managing.
Sadly Tinder has fallen victim to Match.com’s typical ‘Buy a company to completely ruin it’ approach that saw the demise of POF.
Please sort it out Tinder, I’m a paying customer.
I mean, what can you say about Tinder that hasn’t already been said? It’s full of shallow people just looking for a thumbs up from other shallow people. Match with someone? Might as well just give up there. 9 times out of 10 the girl will just unmatched with you immediately or never reply to a message. The 1 time out of ten you get an absolutely half-assed reply. But apparently it’s us men that are the problem! If you want to find adults to chat to a connect with this is not the place, nor are any “swiping” apps at that. You’ll never find so many phoney, hypocritical or just plain ignorant people as you will here.
Do yourself a favour: just go outside. Join a club. Talk to random strangers in the street and you’ll have more luck in love.
I didn’t do anything wrong on my account at all. I accidentally texted to someone that I was 17 instead of 18, which I am. It was just a typo and I got instantly banned from tinder and I have emailed numerous times explaining this yet tinder refuses to unban my account. I live in an area with very few gay guys so I need apps like tinder to find people and because I have been banned I’m really worrying if I’ll be able to find someone. As it is all the clubs and bars are closed so everyone is on apps like tinder. If tinder unbans my account I will change my rating however I have been extremely dissatisfied with the service and that Tinder isn’t recognising that I made a typo and that was all.
If you think this app is dull, think again, if you think this app is based on looks, think again, if you think this app guzzles money, think again!!! This app is purely based on timing... Apart from the fact that Tinder is 75% Men! Which automatically means Men will have less likes, it is also about TIMING! Tinder is like Instagram people! Don't post at 9am on a Tuesday, get swiping on a Thursday night lads!! Also be honest, don't be boring, and don't ruin it for us Men who are genuinely here for a good time and to see what happens... Again, the app is not against the uglies... More of them get matches then the good looking ones! Tinder... Please fix your loading issues

Yes, I know ... It’s clunky. Alerts are unreliable. It crashes. It’s half-full of self-obsessed loonies. It lacks any degree of subtlety.
But it also works. I rarely see attractive profiles on other dating apps that don’t also appear on Tinder. Also, I’ve been on way more dates through Tinder than via all other apps combined, including the two people that I have had a relationship with off the back of online dating.
By all means use a different dating app. But also use Tinder. (If only to marvel at how many people seem genuinely to think Instagram filters make them look more interesting/attractive. Hours of fun.)
