Did not feel safe 1/5
Awful app. Full of creeps. And the app gives your first and last name as soon as you match. As a female this is so NOT cool. I’d like to be able to control when I feel comfortable giving my identifying information out. And then even worse you can’t even delete your profile? They’re “working on it”? It can’t be that hard. Maybe they just want to pad their numbers but keeping people stuck on.
"You've seen everyone" 4/5
By R3d Baron
Just downloaded and complete my profile and the app isn't showing me anything. Something up with my settings?
ETA - issue corrected itself on its own. The app is still flooded with instagram models, but it's already a far better experience than apps like bumble.
Weird people 1/5
Met a real weirdo on here who wanted me to meet become friends with his daughter after talking to me for a day. He also talked like someone reciting a poem
Great app for real interactions 5/5
Better than most. And great UX.
Annoying signup process 2/5
By Cool! It's like POKEMON!
I’ve already connected Facebook and now you want my email? To add to this, .edu isn’t a valid email extension. I’m sure the majority of the users are current or recent college students. Wake up Hinge! Not even in the app yet and I’m already frustrated with the half-assed implementation.
Ah this layout is so beautiful and so much more impactful for developing meaningful relationships.
It’s ok, needs to let me use options! 3/5
I like this app, it seems to be more mature than Tinder. I like that you can see pictures of the actual person, and it lets you say whether or not you smoke or drink, but it won’t let you filter the people being shown to you unless you buy premium! I’m not a smoker and will never be one, nor will I ever go out with one. I don’t want to have to pay $13 for a month of premium just to see people I might match with because they don’t smoke.
Another gripe I would have is to make a part for a bio, they give you 3 prompts to answer in your own words but the answers are limited to 150 characters and are kind of vague.
Lastly, I would suggest that the app doesn’t force you to have 6 photos or connect to Facebook. It’s good to connect and verify that someone is a real person, but I keep my Facebook private and it goes just a little too personal for my taste. I usually keep 3-4 pictures of myself on dating apps like these, and forcing me to have 6 is a lot.
No customer service and broken app 1/5
Fake app. Even after bug fixes update and two weeks of being ignored by customer service about the issues meant below, nothing has changed. Do not support this app.
Would’ve given this app a 4 or 5. It’s beautiful, the design is great and it’s interactive in a way more meaningful than a quick swipe left or right. However, despite getting push notifications of messages and matches the chat portion of the app does not show sent or received messages. It took three days for customer support to respond and they said “update it” although there was no update in the iOS store and I had said in the open ticket email that I had tried a fresh install multiple times. In the email I was promised they would get back to me “very soon,” even taking the time to make very bold. Two days later they seem to just be ignoring me, seeing as how I’ve yet to receive a single actual help message from them. This is an affront to calling it customer support and some of the worst experience I’ve had with a product that unfortunately I was excited to use, and according to my unusable matches I would’ve had success using
No Internet Connection Availability 1/5
By Just Trying to Date
I literally can only use this app for five minutes at a time before it says there's no internet connection. This happens no matter where I'm at. I'm taking it as a sign that Hinge is just not worth it.
Fake profiles 1/5
98% of the people I’ve been matched with and have exchanged messages are fake profiles.
Horrible Update 2/5
Forcing me to have an unread message notification when it’s “my turn” to chat is insufferable and I'm close to deleting this app from my phone.
Worked for us! 5/5
By john and tara
Met my fiancé on hinge. We found each other pretty quickly after a lot of time on other apps. Success story.
Terrible customer service response 1/5
I downloaded the App to try Hinge to potentially meet someone. I was given the option to deny Hinge to have access to my friends list on Facebook. Initially I agreed to do so as it was not made clear I would not be able to use the App without giving them this access. I received a message access denied contact Hinge customer service. I am willing to allow friends access to Hinge but they have not responded to my multiple customer service requests yet my Facebook account still has it as a third party App. The response the developer gave regarding not going through Facebook is irrelevant because I went through Facebook, they have not responded to resetting my account.
Just About Perfect 4/5
This app is downright awesome. I love how it goes about connecting people and lets you comment before the conversation even starts.
The messaging system is a little buggy. I lose my keyboard input often. The text input will unmount from the screen entirely when transitioning partially back to message list or to profile view. My text input also doesn’t persist as long as I would like it to. Love the app guys and gals keep up the amazing work!
Need Facebook Profile to Join 1/5
Unable to join because I don't have a Facebook account.
So signing up I saw that it shows EXACTLY where I live. Is that actually what people can see?! I don’t need stalkers.
Even with all the updates, the app still crashes frequently.
Has potential 2/5
I like the layout and format of this app but there are still glitches happening. The app keeps closing me out, which is annoying. Once they fix all the bugs and get some type of verification system going this app might be a big hit.
so good 5/5
sets you up for getting to know personality
Buyer’s remorse 3/5
By Daé Destino
I gave this app three stars because I like the set-up. The editorial layout is chic. Good job! But... BUT, I’m not really hearing from back from anyone and I’m above average looking. I’ve gotten three likes from guys I already passed up on. I don’t think they should be able to see my profile after I denied them. I’m subscribed for three months and I plan to keep my profile active until my subscription ends.
Not everyone has a Facebook.
Requires too much information. 1/5
You don't need access to everything I've ever posted to Facebook.
Hinge baby coming soon! 5/5
I met my husband on Hinge 3 years ago this week. We eloped in Hawaii a little over a year ago. Now we are expecting our first child next month. Thank you, Hinge! It’s crazy that an app actually changed by life and is bringing new life into the world.
It's different. 3/5
By Jef With One F
It has a unique way of matching. By forcing conversation. Which is a great thing. I've already had great conversations based on the required templates. However, they have limited likes a day that require you to pay a membership if you want more. It's stuff like this that turns me away from using it as much as I use my other dating apps.
Shows the same people... 2/5
I like the idea of this app and like that it is different than all the others I've tried but I have noticed a major issue. I have been seeing the same people each time I go on the app no matter how many times I click the "X" to pass them. I am not paying for this app yet but am hesitant to do so if I am paying to see the same exact people all the time.
Nice profile set up 5/5
Nice profile set up
I just started, but I don’t like what I am seeing so far. I’m seeing a handful of guys who have the nerve to post pictures of their girlfriends on their page, especially when youre able to view their Instagram page..and I’m also seeing a bunch of guys from tinder on here. I’m really starting to see that all of this online dating stuff are for the narcissists. I gave it to stars because there are some guys who are seemingly looking for a relationship but I haven’t really clicked with them, they might click for others.
Buggy / Horrible 1/5
Logged me out then had trouble getting back in. Doesn’t pay attention to any of my preferences. Horrible UI where you can easily unmatch with someone you matched with, accidentally. It’s presenting women who live hundreds of miles away from me, despite me putting my preference at five miles, max. It also doesn’t care about any of my other preferences. I quickly paid for premium and had to call Apple for a refund because of his horrible this app is.
Best app yet! 5/5
I don’t usually write reviews, but this app deserves some praise. I’ll keep it simple-
Higher quality people, more genuine connections, and more personal than swiping. Get it.
best app out there 5/5
excellent for like minded people who are relationship oriented or looking to date someone. its more a personal app
Give it a go! 5/5
Overall, the app has really improved over time! The concept of not having mutual friends is great so you can truly meet new people, outside of your circle! The layout is easy and the messages - they never delete overtime! You get what you put into it so definitely give it a go! Don’t be afraid to like who you like and see what happens! Success story here! I met my boyfriend of 9 months and I couldn’t be happier! Thank you Hinge! :)
Can’t open the app 1/5
Can’t open the app- it says “Facebook friend list access error”
Major Glitches 1/5
This app would be great if it worked. Major issues with “likes”, matches, conversations, etc. This app is full of glitches and it’s obvious after using the app for one day. Many repeat matches I had already swiped “no” on, and profiles that have not been logged on to in months. Looks promising, but overall useless.
Nice concept! 5/5
Because likes are limited it's not like tinder where a lot of matches didn't end up in conversations. There's interesting women so no need tons of swipes. Its also great that you know who likes you and that you can send a message before matching
Turned it on, immediate response. 5/5
By futher moker
This app is what’s up!
Cool concept, some heuristic issues 3/5
In general, I like how profiles are structured and that you like someone by commenting on their photos and answers. However, two things strike me off the bat as mistakes from an xd perspective. When I made my profile, it asked me to specify a location, which was a janky process with no clear confirmation step. But then it told all potential matches that I’m in another state (was on a trip to visit family) and didn’t make that clear to me/give me the option to choose.
I realized belatedly that I had x’ed a match because I thought he was far away, but he was probably in the same boat as me. So I went to find out how to undo the x, only to read that the x behaves differently whether you’re in discover or looking at matches. Please stop using one icon to represent two different actions. Unless maybe your faq content is unclear?
Impossible to use 3/5
If you can even figure out how this app works. They put someone in front of you and I think I have to write them or delete them? One at a time? I don’t know. Dumb. Downloaded and deleted twice now. Last time.
Messaging is bad 1/5
Actually a decent app... but I have all these matches I can’t communicate with because the messaging is all screwed up. I see pop ups that someone sent me a message, then when I go to read it, nothing is there. It happens with all of them.
Fix your app 2/5
A large amount of profiles show blanks for the pictures. They don’t load I assume?
Used to be better 4/5
Hinge is nice. I like using it and have matched with a good amount of beautiful women (and will hopefully meet one of them).
But now, since this new update. I don’t like it as much. Now you are giving girls the chance to be shy and/or boring by saying “Thanks for liking my picture, and even though you wrote a comment with a question, I still want you to start this conversation because I’m not as interested as you yet”.
That’s why I prefer Bumble instead. It forces the girl to make the first move and break out of that shyness... or not and the match disappears.
But I digress. Hinge used to be great, but they need to do a couple things to improve. 1) Get rid of this new feature mentioned above, and 2) expand to more cities and not just major cities.

Don't like my full name being used
Requires Facebook. 1/5
Facebook is terrible, requiring it is terrible.
Annoying notifications 2/5
I only want to get notifications when someone likes or messages me. The reminders about replying to people’s messages are annoying, especially since the reason I’ve stopped messaging is usually because we’ve already exchanged numbers and met.
Data mining is a big NO 2/5
I understand when an app wants to use your Facebook for verification or connecting to other people. However, I despise apps that say “we don’t share your information” then turn around in their privacy terms that they aren’t responsible for how their “3rd parties” use your data. Wanna know how they use it?
ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS ADS (aka selling your data).
Good and bad 3/5
Good site in that the women seem to be more professional and higher class.
Bad site in that if you’re not from NYC and 35 you’re pretty much outta luck.
By Chr Dtz
Notifications are a major glitch 3/5
I really like the concept of this app and really want to like it overall, but there are a few things that are holding me back from a five star rating. Message notifications are the biggest so far. 90% of the time I never get a notification when I receive a message. When I do get one, it’s an hour+ after the message was received and I’ve already looked at it/responded. As of now, the only way to know if I have a message from a match is to actually open up the app and check. Sometimes I think about it regularly and sometimes I forget for an entire day. Not the best way to get to know someone and cultivate a potential relationship.
I also have a hard time believing that only two people have liked me during the week that I’ve been on this app. Not to sound vain, but I know I’m an attractive person and I usually get a ton of likes and messages on other apps. Two likes also doesn’t make sense given the number of likes I’ve sent out. Maybe most of those profiles are inactive? If so, maybe you should have a time cutoff for inactive profiles. If you’re trying to help people find a relationship, then a bunch of empty profiles is unhelpful and discouraging.
Change those two things and I’ll bring my review up to five stars instead of three!
App so poor! 1/5
I have been on this app for a week and I have gotten no matches, tried all the states, it is all same! What's going on?
So many bugs! 1/5
The messaging is buggy, you’ll get a notification with the message then you open the app and it’s not there. Why can’t this be fixed?
Safety issues 1/5
Without my consent, I used only my first name but I found out that pulled full name off Facebook
I had some one contact me...it was another hinge member that let me know my full name showed
