I very rarely get notifications so I have to constantly open the app to see if I’ve received any messages or not. I also think there should be more chance to write about yourself on your profile, but I get the short and simple appeal. Maybe it’s just not my thing. It’s an ok app. Definitely better than Tinder. 🤷🏻♀️
Same song, different app 1/5
I found my experience with Hinge to be virtually no different from Bumble, Tinder, etc. I ran into too many fake profiles. A lady from a small town I lived in years ago (last known population 6000) liked my profile — and already I had a bad feeling about her. If she was legit, we’d be in a long distance relationship. I asked her about things that still stand in that tiny town and she conveniently evaded my questions.
To the powers-that-be at Hinge and its competition: You need to clamp down on the fakers. Weeding out cheaters is also a good idea.
Please fix the discover section of the app! Ever since the new update, it stopped working.
What bugs me the most is they have raised to cost for me to $29.99/mo or $59.99 for 3/mos. and I have no idea why? I let my subscription run out, and I’m trying to renew it, but the cost went up so much it’s ridiculous. It’s not worth it at that cost. I enjoyed the app then first time, there were a few issues, messages would get dropped or they wouldn’t receive them until the next day. But I was hoping to renew my subscription, but no one can tell me why the cost went up so much.
Waste of time. 2/5
During the set up there are questions that are good conversation starters however no one genuinely participates in answering the profile questions.
The application is good at suggesting matches however the users suggested were either spam, not active, or not in the same state.
If I reached out to someone there was often no response after a week. Maybe it’s a good app without a lot of recognition and user base... I’ll never know.
I paid for a three month preferred membership and deleted the app after a month without meeting anyone, or having a genuine conversation with anyone or, having anyone talk to me in my 50 mile radius.
😕I’m no longer active. Way too many spam users here. Account deleted 23March19
Suggestions are kinda lame & my location throws everyone off 3/5
I think their suggested matches is self explanatory.
They have my location listed as Bloomingdale. I’ve never heard my area called that. And I’ve been living here for decades. I wish it would just state the Upper West Side. Kinda annoying.
Not bad 3/5
The app is good but most of the time the photos on the profile won’t load. It’s frustrating at times cause I’m forced to dislike them because I don’t know what they look like
Worked for Me 5/5
Just like they said. I soon delete this app. Probing questions/comments along with pictures makes talking a smoother transition. Real people, real results.
Pictures won’t load? 4/5
Best dating app I’ve seen so far, but one thing is that some profiles I can’t even see their pictures. All that loads up are the questions and answer, I’m switching between WiFi and data and restring my phone and the app and the pics still won’t load for some profiles. Please fix
Nice App - young! 4/5
I found this app I decided to give it a try. I love the way it is presented, much better than other dating apps, the only drawback is it seems to be for only people under the age of 30. Maybe because it’s new, but the age range it is too young for me!
Got to try this app 5/5
Not only was this chick smokin gorgeous but she was in the area n has this rare breed energy about her she is like the perfect person anyone can meet very cool n unique app that brings out more than just a picture of someone
Best one out there 5/5
Found my girlfriend on it
App is getting stuck on green circle 2/5
By Maddie Essex
I love the app but now it won’t login from my phone. It sits there with this green circle after login but nothing. Please fix
Don’t bother. 1/5
Read it somewhere here too but if you’re a guy, don’t bother with the app unless you’re a 10/10 kinda guy.
There is no incentive for girls to swipe through and comment on guys’ profiles. They can literally just sit back and wait as their inbox gets flooded with interested guys. So if you do swipe through and comment on their profile, you’re just joining the queue of hundreds of guys in her inbox. Chances are, unless you have a 10/10 profile, you’re not gonna get the chance of proving yourself date-able 🤷🏼♂️
This is coming from a paying member so really, don’t bother.
Far Better Than Any Other Dating App 5/5
Nothing more to say, other than I met my wonderful wife on Hinge and we now have two beautiful kids and a trusting, fabulous relationship. I just want to pay that forward to anyone who is considering this. 👍🏼
A lot of foreigners pretending to be from here
Further testing required 3/5
To the developers:
Found a feature that needs investigation. Upon account creation, it seems that users can choose “other” for education level; however, when selecting preferences for whom I want to make contact, “other” education has been forgotten and is allowed to slip past the “dealbreaker” function.
So far, the app concept is good and I’m enjoying UX/UI. It’s very clean.
Limited options 1/5
I have not enjoyed this app. There are limited options. I’m a African American female in the DMV area. I requested someone within my race and the majority of my choices have been Caucasian men. 🤷🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️
Also, it’s challenging when chatting. You must pull down on the previous message in order to view the chat.
Not very good 1/5
Seems this app hasn’t caught on. In my experience it seems the number of options using a wide preference for age and distance doesn’t return many results.
Classy app 5/5
By Jessie Qian
Classy app. Fixes every issue of self-confidence you’ve ever had about yourself, except the part when you actually meet up with them in real life. Still. It’s classy.
Not bad... 3/5
I found the interface....not very intuitive. I felt the transitions between actions were VERY slow. I’m not saying I don’t like it...I think it has great potential and I’ll check it out after a few update cycles for sure!
Good luck guys!
Account help 1/5
By Ge george
I’m reaching out because I’m having troubles with my account. I can’t seem to log in to it with the number or email. It keeels redirecting me to create a new account.
I’ve emailed several times but never got a response.
Messages Not Showing 1/5
My messages from matches keep being delayed or not showing. I have to keep logging out and logging back in to see them. If this isn’t fixed I am going to delete my account. I have contacted customer service and not received a response. You have to go through an annoying long captcha just to send a help request, too.
They act like they are better than “swipe” dating apps, but the discover part is just like swiping. The prompts they force you to answer are lame.
New messages received arebuggy 1/5
I see notification for a new msg but when i open the chat the msg isn’t there. Such poor coding. I need to kill the app and re open
Hinge is Perfect 5/5
I love the tempo in the women choosing this app. I don’t like Tinder nor Bumble
Can’t sign in 2/5
This app is pretty good and most of the time it has worked for me. But over the last 3 weeks or so it won’t let me sign in. I click to sign in with Facebook and an alert saying that something went wrong comes up. I’ve tried quitting the app and I’ve tried deleting it and reinstalling. Nothing seems to work
I have no idea why it matches us with people all over the map.
Poor results. Membership fee skyrocketed. 1/5
Poor result's. Had a few matches. Those matches showed their personality flaws immediately. Friend zoned one and blocked the other. Every other woman that contacted me was "thick" no interest in that body type. Maybe a filter for body type?
Membership prices for the application went up substantially. More than doubled. Even as premium member with unlimited likes. Never had more than a total 4 responses. I question the legitimacy of many user accounts.
Ask an expert does not support External Email applications you have to use the apple email client to use this feature. The apple email client is terrible and i refuse to use it. I was never able to ask an expert about my profile.
Needs improvement 3/5
By Remedy T
the app will be better if we can chose our individuals weight as preference that would be a great alternative but overall great app
Recycling Profiles 2/5
I’ve been on Hinge for just under 2, months, and it seems like they ran out of profiles to show me after 2 weeks). In fairness, it could be partially demographics (I’m 52 man), but I’m paying, apparently for a service they can’t provide.
I first started seeing profiles with dated answers to questions like “What are your New Years resolutions for 2015)” (or 2016), which leads me to believe these women haven’t logged in for quite a while. Then I started seeing profiles I’d already been through and decided not to like. I’ve got “don’t want kids” listed as a “dealbreaker,” but I still see profiles of women who want kids and they see mine.” Yesterday, I “liked” a profile in the morning, even commenting on something she posted. That evening, I got her profile again.
If you add in that, with dating sites in general, women get more responses than men, and anyone on Hinge who hasn’t paid can only see their most recent “like,” there’s a good chance women who could be matches won’t see that I’ve liked them.
Finally, their “personalized” advice is pretty much what other apps out in their FAQs — stats, except you pay for them.
Perhaps this is better suited for people in their 20s & 30s, but the lack of transparency around what profiles they can offer is disappointing.
Takes $$, 0 Customer Service, and review deleted? 1/5
I wrote a review a couple of weeks ago and I am unable to find it... so here I go again.
I paid for a six month subscription back in October 2018 and was only able to use it for 1.5 months because I lost my SIM card associated with my account and could not log in. I emailed the support email account seven times from my email I signed up with and sent a message once from the help support form online from January to March and I have not received a message back on how to reached my account. Yet, I still receive updates on who liked me. Due to the unresponsive nature of the customer services team, I recently cancelled my subscription and deleted my account. I will not recommend this service or app.
Met the love of my life 5/5
I read someone else's review last year and thought that could never be me, but in August I tried this app out and one month later I matched with my partner and it was instant chemistry. I never felt this before and being that we're almost 100 miles away with literally no mutual friends we could have gone our whole lives without ever finding each other without Hinge. I'm incredibly thankful and we recommend this app to a lot of our single friends looking for a meaningful connection. Be patient and trust the process!
This app is a sham! I’ve been on this app for a year and dod not receive one date. Got ghosted 25 times!
This app is TERRIBLE! 1/5
The people here seem cool but this app is TERRIBLE... it constantly tells me that i have messages and when i click on the app- they are not there. This happened over 10 times today. I cancelled my renewal until this gets addressed. Plus: ZERO customer support (it sends you auto messages that tells you to resubmit). There is no human to speak with. Awful
Great app 4/5
This app is perfect. Only issue is it is $25 a month which is absolutely crazy. I beleive $10 a month would be the right price but overall great connections and conversations
Message/ sent/ delivered needs work 2/5
On more than one occasion I’ve had messages all come in at one time from different chats after being silent for the whole day.
Slow customer service 1/5
Accidentally put wrong age due to misclicking once (the date I submitted would’ve suggested I haven’t even been born yet) and Hinge blocked me due to “age restriction.” I submitted a request since it was a mistake and they haven’t taken care of it.
I believe a lot of fake profiles 2/5
I have been on here about two weeks ... I have matched with a few people but I am finding things gah lead me to believe fake
They have girlfriends that died wives that died wife that cheated girlfriends that have cheated allegedly they’re all from the same hometown But when you ask specifically what side of town they can’t tell you they can only tell your general area
For some who say they’re educated their sentence forming you can tell it’s not an American person or an English-speaking person they’re obviously foreign it is very disappointing
This could be a great app if there was a way for verification of profiles I’ve only had one ask me to go to hang out which I quickly blocked and regretted ever doing that
Be careful 3/5
Be careful who you talk to out of the 5 guys I had conversations with 3 of them were running scams.
Network error happens often. 3/5
I’ve installed this app in my phone and I have a problem that the app often is not be able to connect to internet often. Sometimes for over a week. While any other apps in my phone works and I had no issue with internet connection, only Hinge hasn’t been able to connect the networks.
I receive notifications about messages & what they say, but can not actually read and reply to them. It happens a lot in middle of the conversation and it will look like I am ignoring them to whom gave me the messages.
This time it has been happening at least 1-2 times a day, and now totally hasn’t been able to do anything for over a week. (It’s never been connected with network for a weeks.)
Hope it will be solved.
Not bad 3/5
Was working well for awhile. I unmatched some people who I had stopped talking to. After that I stopped getting matches and Hinge started showing me low quality profiles. No answer when I emailed. When it works, it works well, so worth a shot.
Ehhh, it’s fine. 3/5
By bdbd d d d d d
Marginally better than Tinder
Fake profiles galore! 1/5
Tried app twice-both times gorgeous women for first few minutes then UGH.
Once in a while a 10 hits me up but clearly fake and claim to live cross country, poor grammar and clearly fake in an attempt to entice men...
Refreshing take on dating 5/5
I love it when the app promotes itself as “the app that is meant to be deleted”. Was able to go on actual dates before meeting the one I wanted to be with. For having a solid foundation of promoting meeting each other; I give this app a good review.
Pretty good overall but one annoying thing 3/5
Stop showing me the same people I already said no to. It seems more than endless; I’ll see the same girl I already said no to 3 times. If there’s no matches just don’t show me anything, that’s fine. I’ll go and do something else and check back in a few days. It’s annoying to not really remember if you already saw a girl or not, and to see ones that you already definitely said no to multiple times.
Needs improvements 2/5
Push notifications need to be part of the chat feed. Otherwise there’s too many coming at the same time and they disappear! Also, logging out shouldn’t delete all your connections and chat feed. Ugh 😞
Please show orientation 2/5
Tried out the app and as a queer identified person found it pretty useless.
First, please allow me to see how other users identify. There’s no point in matching me with a person of the desired gender if our orientations are not compatible.
Second, please don’t match me with cisgender men. Just don’t. Totally pointless, and as a lot of us have have bad experiences with harassment on other apps, it’s just best practice that I can choose to not allow my profile to be seen by genders/orientations I don’t want to see me.
Scams, scams, and more scams 1/5
This app says that it was made to be deleted. They were right. No matter how I changed my settings not one person in my area. Everyone was here last week and was either in Texas or South Carolina. What a joke.
So many bots
