Hinge is a new dating app that bills itself as an online only social networking app that focuses on long term relationships between users. The company behind the idea, Glitterquire, also believe that this will be the future of social networking and would like to see this take off. They claim that Hinge can connect thousands of people in over 150 countries where they can meet and chat. This would create an increase in users in the areas that Glitterquire focuses on most. These are parts of the US, UK and Australia.
Hinge uses its own social networking infrastructure from Facebook and Twitter. The Facebook login that is used with the app is very easy to use but for those who don’t have a Facebook account, there is an option to create one within the app. Once you have logged into Facebook using your Facebook credentials, then you will be prompted to log out so that you can start to connect with other users and adding friends. The hinge stands out because it offers both text and voice interaction. This makes it unique compared to other apps.
You can start looking for potential matches by browsing through profiles on Hinge. There is an option in the top corner of the screen to look for users that are near you by tapping their names. In addition, there are also buttons so that you can search all the listed profiles or just the nearby ones. This is how Hinge stands out from the other dating apps.
There are other features that make Hinge stand out though. One feature that is similar to those of existing dating apps is the option for users to turn off their notifications so that they don’t get tempted by texting or messaging triggers. Hinge also offers two profile views, one that is similar to the profile view shown on Facebook and one that is more like the one shown on the swipe right menu of most phones.
In addition to all of the neat features mentioned above, Hinge has also made it easier for people to browse through profiles. Since it has been designed as an online dating app, it offers a search bar where you can type in keywords. For instance, if you want to find Asian women, simply enter “Asian women” into the search box. The program will then show you a list of matching profiles. If you like the profile and think it might be a good match, you can send a friend request. This is pretty much how Hinge stands out from the dating apps currently available on the market.
Overall, Hinge stands out from other online dating programs because it offers a much friendlier interface. Users can change their settings so that they only receive messages from their potential matches if they want to. They have the ability to turn off notifications so that they don’t get tempted by texting or Facebook pokes. They also have the ability to browse through the available profiles by category. Finally, they have a special feature that allows users to search through all of the matches the instant they launch Hinge. These are some of the things Hinge does well that many other apps don’t.
