Good potential, poor execution Started out great, better than Tinder, but updates made things worse rather than better. Too many bugs, too difficult to select/move photos, and often slow or nonexistent loading. Also, it used to show me people near where I live in Austin (as specified by my 25-mile radius), but recently it's been showing people in San Antonio, Houston, random parts of Texas, and even San Francisco.
This app is so much better than tinder, or at least it would be if it worked. It used to, I don't understand what happened on the development side, but now it won't load pictures past the first. This is particularly frustrating when the first picture is a group of many people and you don't know who it is.
Finally! It took them 5 months and one instance of blaming Android, but they finally made Hinge not crash on startup. My side of all chats is missing, but my matches appear intact technically, if not socially.
This app is somehow getting worse... Before I had issues loading pictures every 10 or so profiles...now it's all of them. If I click on a profile it just spins and spins attempting to load photos but never happens...which makes the app virtually useless. Equally as bad is that this app is constantly restarting. Seems bizarre this app uses more battery than a true location-based app like Tinder. None of this is ruining my life by any means, but the longer this stays broken, the more interested I become in your competitors' products. HTC One M8.
Great idea in theory, but don't waste your time. I love the idea of meeting through friends, but I'm disappointed in the experience. The app is clunky at best - swiping doesn't always register a full swipe - and instead loads the user's profile. It's not as fluid as it's more popular counterparts. It appears as if most users are no longer engaged in the app, and having follow up conversations is rare. Great idea, but I would not recommend.
Great but broken if you move I moved from a city with hinge working to one with a wait list but it refuses to let me on the waitlist for the new city or even out of my old city. Coffee Meets Bagel gets it right, why can't hinge?
