What is Hinge?
Hinge is a dating app designed for people interested in longer term relationships. When creating your profile, you must include six photos or videos. Profiles also feature details such as age, height and religion, but instead of free-form text Hinge features a library of prompt questions. You need to answer three of these questions to complete your profile. These responses can be written or recorded as audio.
When using Hinge’s ‘like’ feature, you can like an individual image, video or answer, not the entire profile. Sending a virtual rose indicates you really like someone’s content. You can review your likes and roses and then match with that person to begin a conversation – you can only chat with someone once you have matched with them.
Hinge is free but in-app purchasing lets you access additional features, such as advanced searches, unlimited likes and boosts to display your profile more prominently.
